Firstly, you cant post point costs for units and items from out of the codex. It is against the forums posting rules that are pinned above the furums topics.
I suggest that you edit out (use the little pencil at the bottom right of your post) the individual points costs but summery points costs are fine. Take a look at the format of some other army lists.
Once this is done, I have a few suggestions about your list.
It's worth a krak!
Sorry about that. Fixed.
I would highly recommend considering dropping these guys from your list, and maybe even downgrading the GM to a Brother-Captain. They are soaking up an incredible amount of points in a low-points game, which can be better placed elsewhere.With the points from the Terminators, you should consider beefing these squads up a bit. Why are you giving the Justicar a Psycannon? I could've sworn that you can give two Psycannons to each squad, though I'm not 100% positive now. These squads are a little too small, and as they die just like normal Marines, you'll have a hard time getting them into combat (which is where they excel, many a time).Originally Posted by INQThe only thing that I would drop is the HK Missile. You could use the points elsewhere, and you already have a fair amount of anti-tank in the Lascannon and the Missile Launcher.Originally Posted by INQ
I have to agree with all of the comments that Lost Nemesis made.
Although terminator models are really cool, using them in a 1000pt army is a really difficult thing to do, simply because you wont have much of anything else.
NEVER give a Justicar a psycannon, because you are paying pts to give up your NFW which is a S6 power weapon AND the True Grit special rule.
You need more PAGKs! Get them by dropping some GKTs and downgrading your GM to a BC.
It's worth a krak!
Its illegal to give a justicar a psycannon anyway. Pg 16, the small paragraph just above the armoury.
And no matter how cool, or insanly expensive, i would agree to dropping those terminators. Kinda nifty addition to 1500 points though.
... There's no place like 127.0.0.1
More reinforcement from another member of the choir.
Don't waste points on those expensive GKTs until you are building lists of 1500+ pts. You need models more than you need GKTs. Take a lone BC as your HQ, maybe give him sacred incense or a psycannon, and that's it! Don't take the GM, either, as he'd be almost 15% of your total expenditure for a single model that can be insta-killed. Stick your BC in with one of your troops PAGK squads and you're fine.
On those squads, I think you can get away with a single "mini-purgation" squad (put a psycannon-toting BC in there), but all other GK squads you buy must be 8+ models strong and be vanilla. (Stick a vanilla BC somewhere in here.) Otherwise your chances of succesfully contesting objectives/table quarters is just about nil.
I like your dread. I always think that a GK DH list must have at least one TLLC/ML dread, if not two in larger points games. In 1000 pts lists, even we can afford a 2nd dread, which can come in handy however you build it to help take the heavy firepower heat off of just one armoured target. However, don't take the HK missile. Too expensive for what you get. Squeeze points to get more PAGK troops.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
