Welcome to Librarium Online!
im very new to this army. ive run a ig army for 4yrs and have come up with a basic idea that is the bones of my plan.
termi squad as retinue
Troops: 3 squads of GK
2 with 1 psycannon each
FA: 1 squad of gk with telaport...
i cant decide wether to get a lrc or a dread for my eavy support.
I usualy fight csm and ig
can u help me define my army?
well, overall, GKs lack anti tank, so alot of poeple are going to argue to buy two dreadnoughts for your anti tank needs (especially against russes and defilers). crusaders are more anti infantry (though u have anti tank, it's only when ur 24" away...), but it doubles as a nice transport for the GM and his crew. however, it'll be the first thing EVERY anti tank will shoot at. chances are the dreads wlil fall too, but at least you can shoot back with more anti tank prowess.
"One thing that intrigues people to fantasy is how different it is from reality. Make sure you remember that difference, and you'll have a wonderful time."
IMO 2 dreads with lascannons and missle launchers is good anti-tank. Keep these back, that way your opponent will have to worriy about your GK marching up and the Dreads at the back shooting
One Shot, One Kill
Well if you have 5 or less GM retinue including your GM you could put them in a LR and use it for a transport and shooting. I personally would go with 2 dreadnoughts though instead of a lrc. It also matters what they have. If they lack firepower go with the lr or lrc. In smaller point games I think that lr and lrc are a bit pricey but the choice is up to you. I would get 2 dreadnoughts instead with twin-linked lascannon's and missle launcher. Good luck starting DH.
