Currentley I have a 500pt army consisting of 2 Justicars, 2 Incinerators, 1 Psycannon 6 GK's, An Inquistitor with familiars, Mystic, Hierophant, etc. Stromtrooper with flamer and Grenade Launcher, and 8 ordinary IST's.
Anyone have any advice on expanding to 1000pts? I was thinking of more GK's and a dreadnaught, and a couple more IST's. Tips please, thanks
May i reccomend an even blending of GK and IST. That way you can have muscle and number
You know what would really be scary? Yeah. I know that you know that i know that you know that i know what i'm thinking:
War Titans for 40k. Muahahahaha! They'd be like 50,000 points.
(This rambling brought to you by too much Caffiene)
Space Marines - 1/0/0
Night Gobbos - 1/0/0
I'm not a bit fan of IST's though. Hellguns strength 3 AP 4? No thanks. Lol. How well do dreds work in a Daemonhunter army?
Dread's work very well infact. So well, I usually take two in every game I play, from 1000 points upwards.Originally Posted by IbramGaunt
Some DH players take 3, but I'd say that's overkill. Besides, I like to leave space for an LRC in the bigger points games. BTW Hellguns are str 3 AP5, but still, I'd much rather have that than a flashlight, at least it can hurt Orks and Eldar Well.
Pah, I'm always getting mixed up with gun values, but still that sucks. And I'm sure IST's wouldn't work too well in tournies, when you could be up against Ork's but then again against something like SM's. Then what would happen? They would be slaughetered.
Well what is exactley the best things to equip a dred with? Lascannons, or assault things, or a mixture?
Do you guys like using GK Heroes or Inquisitors for HQ?
S3 AP5 might suck, but what sucks even more is being outnumbered 5-to-1 and having every shot your opponent fires hit a model worth 26 points or more. Also bear in mind that IST, while the worst DH unit, are one of the best IG units, and are on par with most non-MEq base troopers.
For dreads I do what Katalyst does. DH have a weakness vs. heavy armor, and dreads with TL LC fill that gap pretty well.
First of all, IST dont win fights they suck.They preform specialized roles, tank hunting, taking down Heavily armored infantry-with plasma,call in DS, if you use them as the full fighting force your using them wrong.
