edit: my current plan is to take eldar but i think the necron list is probably more of a tournament army. plus i wanted to take daemonhunters just for the fact that next to no-one takes them to tournaments and i have quite a bit of luck with them

hmm......well lots of choices there

Necrons: be careful with those destroyers, don't get them into cc (bad experience on the weekend)

Blood angels: no fast attack? i think its a little unfluffy due to the whole nutcase thing, maybe drop a Baal pred for some fast attack?

Eldar: i think the list is a little weak (no offence intended)

first Grey nights: i think this is a strongish list but i have no experience with them(never played them) pat on the back for wanting to be different though.

Puritan Grey knightsowerful but short on differentiated units

I guess my two questions would be:

1. Are you going to have fun or are you going to be trying to win at all costs?

2. Which of the four armies are you most comfortable with?

To be honest your Blood angels don't have enough anti tank, your eldar will go down to 3 lucky shots (relying waaaay too much on those 3 prisms...), your daemon hunter lists aren't bad...

But your necron list is nasty. 27 shots with high strength, decent ap and the guass rule, 20 warriors that you don't really need so you can sit them on an objective and 9 mobile lascannons... Yeah, if you want to win the whole thing, thats the list I would take.

i am starting to get swayed by my daemonhunters (partly because they are all painted!!!!)

i am not trying to win at all costs, but i do want to do well (:huh: sounds strange i know). i just dont really think that my DH will do very well in a tournament style game (i normally play in a GW so DENSE terrain is what i normally use)


i think the necron list is the most deadly, and would be quite fun to use (i have a fasination with jetbikes ^-^) but like i said - i want to represent the ordo malleus - there were 5 Daemonhunter players at the last GT (5!!!!)


curse my love of the inquisition :'(


and i like the eldar list as well (i have played about 10 games so far and lost 1, drawn 1)


i just read through this post and noticed this:

Inquisition=ownage

if it was me I would go with DH because they are more fun to play with and look stunning on the field, and they have more specialized weapons rather than the necrons which have more general use weapons

reference that, this is my updated DH list:

HQ - Inq Lord - Psycannon, Psychic hood
3 heavy bolter servitors
1 sage
2 mystics - 192 Pts total

Elites - 3 daemonhosts - 255pts

Elites - Callidus Assassin - 120pts

Troops - 8 stormtroopers - 2 melta guns - 100pts

Troops - 8 stormtroopers - 2 plasma guns - 100pts

Troops - 5 space marines - lascannon - 95pts

troops - 5 space marines - lascannon - 95pts

Fast attack - 6 bikes+attack Bike - 2 melta guns, sergeant has powerfist/close combat weapon and attack bike has multi-melta

heavy suport - 5 space marines - 4 plasma cannons

1490pts total

now then, i WILL NOT take out those daemonhosts, they are what gives the army its "just for fun" feel


though i'm not sure what to use the exta 10pts on (or whether to use it at all). i could give the Inq Lord something (like a power weapon or "word of the emperor") or take another stormtrooper............. i dunno.


still undecided though.

i have a tough tournament game this monday with my eldar, dependning on how well they do i will consider the necrons or the daemonhunters

If I were you I would take another stormtrooper, an extra man can mean all the difference

then he gets killed in the first turn and I look stupid :P
