This is my 1500 point list, built to take on all armies. It has some sense of mobility LOTS of flamers (celsestians get heavy flamer and 3 flamers) , storm bolters and ass cannons to take care of infantry. Also has some anti tank with the storm troopers and ass cannon on the dread... Any comments as I am new to dh and do not really no what I am doing...
I'm no expert, but just from reading posts, you are gunna get alot of grief about the flamers I think. Well the ones not on the celestians at least.
He's coming for you...
Its seems very purgy, I dont knough enough about the adepta sororitas, your Inq.Lord seems sucky, GKs handle our CC because they have double the strength of an IST and almost double the WSOriginally Posted by spongebob
I really wanted to take an assassin and he is only really there so if I get assaulted I have some chance of coming out alive ect. But hes got 5 power weapon and 1 normal st4 at in6 attack on the charge. Plus im getting +1 for 1st turn which is crucial for d.h. I only took psy cannon bolts because Im v.s alot of tau, nids so it works out ok. Also the flamer squad is good because even against marines/termies there bound to fail a few saves for that many wounds.
Actually, I think flamers are awesome, and a perfect reason to include some SoB in your army. However, I don't know that the brazier is worth its points, nor the holy icon, or even the holy promethium. All cool, but all very expensive. You can easily afford to drop them. Even so, your list will do a wonderful job clearing troops. But it is very weak on anti-tank.
You say you face a lot of tau, so I would imagine you'll want some kind of longer-range threat to draw your opponent's attention. Right now, the only real anti-armor unit you have is the ISTs. A good unit, to be sure, but at 1500 pts, you also need another one. For anti-tank, you don't require a full IST squad. 5-8 models will be enough.
Your inquisitor seems way over-tooled for the task. He's all set for CC in a unit that, as a tank-hunter, you will want to keep out of CC. I think it's OK to keep the power weapon -- as a threat and for a little extra punch if you need it should you get them caught in CC -- but drop everything else other than the bolt pistol and tarot. Also, drop the veteran from the IST squad. You're not using him for anything that your inquisitor can't do (and is already doing, and will be doing once joined to the squad).
Also, drop Word of the Emporer from your GM. Even if they get charged, vs most opponents he'll go first and decimate them because of his high initiative and his multiple attacks with that awesom NFW he wields.
So, dropping a few ISTs and a lot of gear should net you enough points to build another anti-armor unit. You can afford to reequip your dread to the task (the assault cannon is awesome, but your list is already extremely effective against troops) and/or get another smallish IST squad -- or even battle sister squad! -- suitable to the task.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Well I dont vs many armies with armour but really the ist squads there just incase. On the gkt the emperors word is important as I v.s lots of eldar, dark eldar nids ect. Withe the inq. hes is a lil bit otp but hes ok I guess. I need the emperors tarot as it will hopefully get me 1st turn.
