Ok, I just started a new army, decided to make an "Inquisition Army" and include both DH and WH.
The current models I have are.
1 Inquisitor (or Inquisitor Lord)
3 Sisters of Battle Squads (7regulars, 1 flamer, 1 SB, 1 Superior; each squad)
1 Seraphim Squad (1 Superior, 3 regulars, 1 with TLHF)
2 Grey Knight Squads (3 regulars, 1 Justicar, 1 Flamer; each squad)
I also have a spare chimera I was thinking of throwing in there somewhere if I can.
I have my army set up like so right now.
Inquisitor (no retinue, cus i cant find the damn models)
SoB Squad 1: 1 SS, 11 SoB, 2 SB Sisters.
SoB Squad 2: 1 SS, 10 SoB, 1 SB Sister.
Grey Knight Squad: 1 Justicar, 7GKs.
I obviously need more for a proper army, like a retributor squad, or a Dread.
What do you guys think I need to do? I've got ideas but I'd like to see what might be out there.
DH and WH can be a really awesome combination if done properly. I'm going to look at what you've got right now and make some adjustments to that, and suggestions for future purhcases. OK, well first I'd get rid of the inquisitor unless you planned on getting an assassin, because otherwise by himself, an Inquistor can't do much. Secondly, I'd get a second flamer in the sisters squads, as flamers with divine guidance can be devestating. Drop the flamers from the GKs, as you want to leave them with their SB and NFW.
- More Sisters in each squad, or get them a transport
- More Seraphim, and another one with TLHF
- Get two exorcists as soon as possible
- You might want to give Celestians a shot
- Retributor squad with 3-4 HBs, don't use MM, they are laughable
- GK dread or two, with either TLLC and ML for tank-hunting, or AC and DCCW for anti-infantry
- You could put a small IST squad with 2 plasmaguns in that spare chimera :w00t:

Thanks for the help, IATFP.
I like your suggestions. Do you suggest I use the Flamers instead of the Storm bolters for the SoBs?
The GK squad isnt using the flamers, I was told they were useless and you confirmed that.
I'll look into ordering another Seraphim Squad, and a retributor squad asap.
I think at the same time Ill get a dread in, and another 2GK boxes for a 2nd FA squad.
Thanks again for the suggestions.

No problem, Hel. And yes, I recommend that you give the Sisters flamers instead of storm bolters. Storm bolters aren't really worth it for Sisters in most scenarios. But since this is YOUR army, after all, what ideas did you have in mind? What direction would you like to go in with your list?

Currently, Im just trying to get the most out of the model I have.
I'm ordering more probably every week, but thats gonna slow down soon, and Im just trying to avoid common mistakes (not using GKs in a DH army, Using SoB for CC....)
I used to play during 2-3rd edition, and took break. I think its been about 5-6 years since I've played (I got pissed with 3rd ED rules) So I'm just trying to get used to all the new stuff going on
So far you've been a great help already.
