Pretty new to the game.The boy started playing at school and it turns out I like to convert the models.This is a list with some of our conversions and a second hand IG army.We started going to the local games club and I was wondering if anyone thinks this list is a good idea.
HQ-Inquisitor Lord w/daemonhammer,artificer armor,bolt pistol
-3 acolytes w/stormshields,laspistols
-3 combat servitors w/powerfists,ccws-220 pts
Troops-5 stormtroopers,1 plasmagun-60 pts
-5 stormtroopers,1 plasmagun-60 pts
-Inducted infantry platoon -command squad w/missile launcher
-1 squad w/autocannon
-1 squad w/lascannon-205 pts
-Inducted infantry platoon-identical to the first-205 pts
Fast Attack-2 Inducted Sentinels w/multi-lasers-90 pts
Heavy Support-Inducted Leman Russ w/battle cannon,hull mounted lascannon,extra armor-160 pts
The plan is to sit back and shoot with the infantry,deploy the Lord ahead of the army by 7" for counter assaults and move the vehicles to respond to the opponents weak points.The boy mostly plays against Ultramarines and Guard,sometimes a monstrous heavy Nid army.Most of the local players my age play Chaos Marines of one flavour or another.Any critique is welcomed
Honestly, I think you'd be happier playing an Imperial Guard army with DH allies.
Those DH Troops choices look to be, basically, placeholders. If they weren't, you'd give them 2x special weapons (and always the same one, don't mix inside units) and transports.
If you played an IG army, you could still have the Lord, as well as a smattering of other DH units, but wouldn't need those IST units (although you could still take them if you liked). And you'd also get doctrines - and doctrines give some great conversion opportunities.
Somewhat true,Megalo.This is a starter for a planned larger army that will include Grey Knights as fast attack,Grey Knight HQ and retinue, a different(Plasma-shooting squad)Inquisitor Lord and two rhinos for the Stormtroopers.This Lord will become an elite Inquisitor choice if I decide to keep him.This army is built to field a Russ in a 1000 pt Daemonhunter list to get the feel of an Inducted Guard list in a small game.Your point is taken though.I will look at flipping the list.

Nice avatar,Megalo.Sorry if I didn't get the quote exactly right,my compilation fell apart years ago from over reading.
