    750 Witch Hunters for FUN

    I have now put this in the right forum.

    Well, this is aminly to use up models that I ahve and don't use too often - my main sistars army has gone down the drain now that prices are going up where I live. I might build on this in the future. At the moment, the only things I don't have are the special / heavy weapons for the Sisters squads, and the Retinue for the inquisitor.

    My own fluff is that this is a small task force assigned to take out rampaging Ork warbands, under the authority of an Inquisitor Lord. in their travels, they have encountered patrols from a variety of armies.

    Basically I will be facing mainly Orks, but also SM and varients, Tau, Necrons, Eldar...you name it, I'll be playing it (apart from Squats )

    I normally WOULD go all mechanised, but Rhinos will be too expensive (and I have at least 3 other armies I need to complete before working on larger Sisters armies), so a mechanised force is out for now. What do you vets think of the list then?

    HQ

    Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Lord: Inquisitor Lord w/ Plasma Pistol, Power Weapon, Rosarius, Meltabombs & Frag Grenades. 3 Crusader Henchmen.
    161

    Elites

    Officio Assasinorum Operative: Vindicare Sniper.
    110

    Troops

    Battle Sisters Squad 1: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    176

    Battle Sisters Squad 2: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    176

    Heavy Support

    Retributor Squad: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Storm Bolter, Book of St. Lucius & Auspex. 5 Battle Sisters w/ 2 Heavy Bolters. 127

    750 points total.

    Now, many people say that the Vindicare is "cheesey", but my gaming group is allowing me to use it for our campaign we are running (exterminate the Heretics and Xenos), as I am the only Ordo player in our group.

    The Sniper sits at the back with the Retributors. I am hoping that the Vinicare will be able to use the Turbo Penetrator to kill off enemy HQs - most should only have 2 wounds max. at this level. He eill then take out Sergeants (or equivalent) or Specail/Heavy weapon troopers.

    The Retributors wil lsit back and open fire on mobs of Orc Boyz, Eldar Guardians, etc. Will move up when the rest of my army has advanced.

    The two sisters squads more up in a line into the enemies face, and rapid-fire. The Inq. follows behind to attempt to handle enemy "assault units" - they should be weak enough to be handled by the Inq. at this level, yeah?


    Here is an alternative list, which to you rekon is better?

    Yes, I know about the 1500 all-Rhino mounted, Exorcist and Seraphim Sisters army that is extremely effective, that I WAS planning to do would have worked, thanks to the tactics mainly given by yourself. But as I explained I cannot do this, and i have a few Sisters, and an Inquisitor Lorr kicking about.

    However,I wanted to do something that would sort of work with all of the models that are sat around, redundant on my desk. Its just for a fun campagin down at my store, but I would like an army that can ACTUALLY do seomthing this time. In the last campaign, my guard army was...dissapointing to say the least.

    What do you think of my shooty-Inquisitro based list?

    HQ
    Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor Lord: Inquisitor Lord w/ Plasma Pistol, Liber Heresius & Auspex. 3 Warrior Henchmen w/ 3 Plasma Guns.
    142

    Elites
    Officio Assasinorum Operative: Vindicare Sniper.
    110

    Troops
    Battle Sisters Squad 1: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator, Bolt Pistol & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    177

    Battle Sisters Squad 2: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator, Bolt Pistol & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    177

    Heavy Support
    Retributor Squad: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Storm Bolter, Book of St. Lucius, Auspex & Krak Grenades. 5 Battle Sisters w/ 3 Havy Bolters.
    144

    750

    So, what do you lot think of this then - and which do you think is better - I will moslty be facing Orks, although there are several MEQ, Tau and Eldar about the place.

    Edit: I just noticed the WH army lists forum - could someone move it please?

    against orks the assaulty =][= is better that sed i think you should remove alot of that stuff from your superiors and jus give her a power weapon and bolt pistol cus they are using too many points use the freed points to upgrade the retributer, with wh you really want to shoot alot (lotsa heavy b's and strm b's) but it's wise to have one dedicated cc just in case. i do have a question though how are you gonna deal with anti-tank?

    750 points is light and you just burned 1/3 of your entire army to get a sniper and the inquisitor who is giving you nothing, personnaly I would drop both, take a cannoess and use the points to add more sisters

    Troops

    Battle Sisters Squad 1: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    176
    add more sisters as above

    Battle Sisters Squad 2: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    176
    ditto

    Heavy Support

    Retributor Squad: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Storm Bolter, Book of St. Lucius & Auspex. 5 Battle Sisters w/ 2 Heavy Bolters. 127

    750 points total.
    again add more sisters

    Now, many people say that the Vindicare is "cheesey", but my gaming group is allowing me to use it for our campaign we are running (exterminate the Heretics and Xenos), as I am the only Ordo player in our group.

    The Sniper sits at the back with the Retributors. I am hoping that the Vinicare will be able to use the Turbo Penetrator to kill off enemy HQs - most should only have 2 wounds max. at this level. He eill then take out Sergeants (or equivalent) or Specail/Heavy weapon troopers.

    142
    marginally better, you got 3 plasam guns here for your money

    Elites
    Officio Assasinorum Operative: Vindicare Sniper.
    110
    Again although this HQ/elite combi is better, I would still prefer a cannoness

    Troops
    Battle Sisters Squad 1: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator, Bolt Pistol & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    177

    Battle Sisters Squad 2: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Eviscerator, Bolt Pistol & Book of St. Lucius. 9 Battle Sisters w/ Heavy Flamer & Meltagun.
    177

    Heavy Support
    Retributor Squad: Veteran Sister Superior w/ Storm Bolter, Book of St. Lucius, Auspex & Krak Grenades. 5 Battle Sisters w/ 3 Havy Bolters.
    144
    as above plus loose the nades

    So, what do you lot think of this then - and which do you think is better - I will moslty be facing Orks, although there are several MEQ, Tau and Eldar about the place.

    Edit: I just noticed the WH army lists forum - could someone move it please?
    I much prefer the second list but would still change it as above
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    I DO want to make some changes to the list. I was thinking I was light on troops, but I am seriously lacking funds (having just completed a 1500 Infantry army....180 Infantry models costs a lot!).

    I am also trying to use up some of the models I never use, so most changes need to be limited to Blister packs really .

    Would swapping out the Vindicare for an Everasor be a good idea, and run her with a BW Cannoness and go character unting? However, i do like the ability to pop HQs at these points levels thanks to the Special Ammo.

    So you are in favour of the Plasma Inq? I was thinking that he would be my main Marines deterant - if they get close t is 8 plasma shots! On thinking about it, would a CAnnoness be a better Character hunter? Bear in mind I play Orks a lot (and th4e Warboss is iin a Tankbusta mob).

    I have 3 or 4 Seraphim kicking about too - should I try to put them into the list?

    *sigh* yeh it's always that problem, money

    Though you don't want a mechanised army a tank or two may end up cheaper than buying whole squads. An example of this is a landraider in a 1000pts army, oops theres a quater of the army sorted for £30 heh

    I actually like both lists even tho Cheredanine is right regarding the inquisitor and the assassin being a points sink, the evis in the squads are a good idea tho, because beware the Eldar player and his Wraithlords even in "fun" 750 pts armies.

    in 750 there should only be a max of one which is no big deal if he has more than one then the sisters are more than capable of dealing with them (especially exorcists) and it's about 1/3 of his army gone. people who take three in 750 usally only have some small units of guardians backing them up and bolters will rip em up no problems.
