Hi all,
IG player trying something new out here; I have a small daemonhunters force and I really like the Grey Knight Terminator models. So I concocted this list to try and include them against an opponent who hit me with three landraiders, one godhammer, one crusader, one redeemer. The crusader had seven TH/SS terminators with Lemartes. He also deepstruck assault terminators with TH/SS, and kept two tactical squads in the other two LRs and drop podded an Ironclad Dreadnought. He also had Vulkan Hestan to make his meltas and THs more effective.

So, here goes. I have about 109 points of playroom, so I'm not quite sure what to add. Any suggestions are welcome.

Two melta vets in Chimera, One melta vet squad in the Vendetta, the Plasma vets will hold the line with the CCS, while the GKTs will deepstrike onto the field wherever they are needed to repel enemy terminators or destroy an exposed element of his army.

Thoughts on this list?

How can you ahve Lemartes (Codex Blood Angels) and Hestan (Codex Space Marines) in the same army?

Concerning your list:

CCS is BS 4, they need guns, lots of guns! At least a LasCan.

Take 2 GK with TH/SS for wound allocation. Add heavy weapon.

Veterans are okay, Plasma is a bit expensive, but as long as you're laying against MEQ, it' s okay.

Leman Russ Squadrons are a no-go. Drop the standard Russ.

Give the Executioner a LasCan, and change the loadout of the Demo to 3x hBolter.

Maybe you want to add an Inquisuitor? Free shooting on deep striking units, another capable CC-fighter and more firepower? Add more chimeras, add some Sentinels with PlasmaCannons, or outflanking Scout Sentinels with AutopCannons?

It sounds like you guys are playing Apocalypse games. Apocalypse is a lot of fun, but it won't hold up to "competetive" armies. I find that it works best if you work together to build army lists and the game. Instead of treating it like a pick-up game or a tournament, treat it like a one-game campaign.

Here are my comments on your list.

1. You need Meltaguns or Plasma Guns in your command squad (preferably Meltaguns). I would also recommend an Officer of the Fleet.

2. Your Grey Knights are crazy expensive, so make sure that you are careful with them. I would drop the Holy Relic (too over-priced). I'd drop a GTK and go with a 6-man unit; consider an Incinerator (especially if your army has a Teleport homer) or a Psychic Hood (if your opponents use psychic powers).

3. Don't mix special weapons and heavy weapons in your Veteran units. Generally, you just want 3 Meltaguns or 3 Plasma Guns (because these units need to be mobile).

4. You are spending a TON of points on heavy support for this army.

I wouldn't bother "holding the line" with this army. You are better off all mechanized.

Best of luck.

Using squadron of Leman Russ in an Apo-force is even worse...

I disagree on the veterans - a squad with 3 plasma guns + LasCan (or cheaper: 3 grenade launcher and an AutoCan) is agreat line-holder, especially with the grenadier doctrine.

If this is an Apo-force:
Get a Baneblade, blast away those puny Land Raiders :cool:
