Toying with the idea of having the land raider haul some of the troops around and punch big holes in tanks with the las cannons. I really like the idea of a very mobile army I used to play mech tau. I really like how most of the guns are assult 2 and not rf! I canâ€™t wait to play gk and finally win a close combat!
Any and all advice is welcome!
People will disagree with me, I'm sure, but I don't think a GM has any place in lists under 2000pts. A BC is still handy and will free up points for nearly four PAGK. On the other hand, plenty of people DO use a GM in games this size, to good effect. Just something to consider.HQ Grand Master + 3 termies =289My advice on DCA's is to never take them in a list with GKT. Compare their costs and what role they serve on the field, and you'll see that a GKT usually will be more useful. Heck, PAGK/FAGK can be more useful, if only to absorb casualties (see below on the FAGK units).Elite 2X deathcult =80InquIsitor I assume this guy is going to join a random squad and go with them? Remember that you cannot join an IC to a squad before they Deepstrike, so putting him into the HQ or FAGK units isn't an option. See below on the LR for some advice on using this guy.Elite Inqusitor w/psy cannon,tp homer, melta =65Bad idea. FAGK, when they Deepstrike, cannot move or assault on that turn. If you're landing them near the enemy, they'll have to withstand an entire turn of ranged attacks before being charged or being able to charge. Then, they have to win the subsequent melee - Fearless models that are outnumbered in a losing fight take automatic wounds. That, plus 5 GK won't have much of an effect on anything but basic infantry. Always always always take FAGK units of 8-10!Fast pagk x5 =150
Fast pagk x5 =150Now, you may have caught on by now, but I'm not a fan of using expensive models in smaller games. My personal experience has led me to believe that a full GK squad, for about the same cost, is more useful than a LR or LRC. But everyone has their own styles.Heavy land raider plus smole and extra armor =258
One suggestion that I hope you DO listen to is NOT to put the HQ unit in this tank. That's a case of putting all of your eggs in one basket, and it's a basket that only requires one lucky lascannon shot to break! Instead, you should DS the HQ unit, and use this tank either empty or with the Inquisitor. Now, a tactic that I've used with great effectiveness is putting JUST the Inquisitor into a LR or LRC, with no weapons or armor or anything except for a Teleport Homer. This way you can drive the LR/LRC to where you want to bring down the HQ & FAGK and call them down, without risking them being blown up in the tank. If the LR/LRC is killed before then, your HQ and FAGK are unscathed and can still land wherever you like, with less accuracy of course. Just an idea for you.These things will seldom make their points back in direct kills unless the enemy stumbles into it or you have some lucky scatter rolls. But they ARE great for psychological warfare - the enemy knows you HAVE it, but not WHERE it is. He'll stay away from terrain pieces until the Strike lands for the first time, which potentially disrupts his tactics. And if you can target either a choke point on the map that the enemy MUST travel through, or a road/river that allows you to target the Strike all over the map as needs must, you'll really scare the guy!Heavy orbital lance 70
Thanks mEGALOMANIAC for the great advice! I was thinkingof the inqusitor should join the ist plasma squad. I will drop the dc and get 2 more termies? Do you think melta ist and a rino are a viable tank killing strategy? I am trying not to use a dreadnaught (cost right now ) but if it is a necessity I will buy one. Will also increase the fagk to 8-10. I can not thank you enough for the help!
