Hi. I am a "new" player. I put new in quotes, because I used to play 40k about 6 or 7 years ago back when I was single and in the Army. I had a lot of fun playing Orks. Between then and now I have moved several times and misplaced about half my ork army. I recently ran into some cool guys who play 40k and they convinced me to start playing again. Since I don't have enough orks any more to field a full army, I thought I'd try a new army.
After looking at the models and codexes (and some hints from my friends about the EoT campaign) I decided to take a full Daemonhunter GK army (no pansy IGs or SMs in this army!
I am about to play my first game with this army on Friday against one of my friends who is fielding a Necron army (I have no idea what units). Now, considering Necrons came out after I stopped playing, as well as there being a new version of the rules and I'm playing a completely new army, I thought I would ask for opinions.
Does anyone have any tactics suggestions for fighting a 1500 Necron army?
My army list right now, as designed, consists of:
Inquisitor Lord w/bolt pistol, thunderhammer, Holocaust power, and Teleport homer
2 warrior henchmen (one w/hellpistol & ccw, one with hellrifle)
1 acolyte w/meltabombs
2 GK squads (each squad 1 justicar w/auspex & psycannon bolts, 4 regular GK troopers in power armor)
1 GK Deep Strike Squad (1 justicar w/auspex & psycannon bolts, 4 GK troopers in power armor)
1 GK Purgation squad (Justicar w/psycannon, 4 GK troopers w/psycannons)
1 GK terminator grand master hero (no nifty gear)
4 GK terminators (1 w/incinerator)
1 GK dreadnought w/twin-linked lascannons, Blessed, and extra armor
1 Lance Strike Orbital strike
(makes 29 figures plus dreadnought and an orbital strike)
I made this list before I knew I was fighting necrons. I hear they are pretty good against vehicles, so I was thinking of getting rid of my dreadnought and maybe picking up some more figures (this list uses every GK figure I have) or throw another orbital strike. Any thoughts?
