Default DH with WH allies

got my hands on some seraphim models so i figure i'd play around with a DH + WH list. having given up my usual inducted guard contingent im kinda sore over having lost a decent chunk of anti-tank power and also having given up a imperial assassin is kinda hurtin. lemme know what u guys think, any alternative choices would be appreciated.

i really like the idea of a swarm of fanatics being a thorn in the opponent's side much like the way a grot swarm gets in people's hair. except this swarm is packing 5 powerfists, altho i imagine if i had to somehow pay for an assassin, i'd start taking away those fanatics first. the jump pack troops are there to help the GK as they teleport in by providing assault screens, prior to the arrival of the GK they'll most likely be sheltered by fast moving rhinos.

Basic DH HQ, I would personally take one Terminator out and add a Psycannon. Its hard to pass up the abilty to shoot Heavy Weapons and move in the same turn is to good to give up.

1 Canoness (HQ) (wh) @ 115 Pts
Inferno Pistol (x1); Blessed Weapon
Jump Pack
Book of Saint Lucius

Another good one, but the Inferno pistol isn't worth it really. You have to be really close to use it to its fullest extent. Switch it out for a Bolt pistol. I would also reccomend adding a Cloak of St. Aspiera

1 Ordo Malleus Inquisitor (Elites) @ 51 Pts
Psycannon
Targeter

1 Ordo Malleus Inquisitor (Elites) @ 51 Pts

Running these guys in a pair is great, and keeping them alone keeps them alive longer because of the Independent Charater rules. Can't go wrong with these bad boys.

1 Priest (HQ) (wh) @ 65 Pts
Commander: Zealots (Troops); Eviscerator; Las Pistol

Good basic Priest, i really really recoomend some Armour for this guy, atleast Carapace Armour to help him stay alive longer.

6 Inquisitorial Storm Troopers (Troops) @ 138 Pts
Meltagun (x2)
1 Inquisitorial Rhino
Extra Armour
Smoke Launchers

6 Inquisitorial Storm Troopers (Troops) @ 138 Pts

These are good, but I reccomend bumping them both up to 8 men each and making the Rhinos Chimeras. You could drop a Dread, concerdering the Chimeras aren't fire magnets, so you woun't worry about them dieing so quick. Its worth having the Extra power of the Chimeras.

16 Zealots (Troops) @ 192 Pts
Flamer (x2)
4 Fanatics
Eviscerator

What are these? Must of missed them in my Codex.

7 Grey Knights (Fast Attack) @ 226 Pts
1 Grey Knight Justicar
Targeter

7 Grey Knights (Fast Attack) @ 226 Pts
1 Grey Knight Justicar
Targeter

These are the epitome of the Grey Knights. They capture most of the fluff of the Grey Knights, and reallt work well when DSing. Give the Justicars Meltabombs for those real strong enemys that your opponet will use to kill your Knights.

7 Seraphim Squad (Fast Attack) @ 226 Pts
2 Inferno Pistols (x2)
1 Veteran Sister Superior
Bolt Pistol (x1); Power Weapon (x1)

Again don't use the Inferno Pistols, hand flamers can really do much better. If you wan't tank busting give them Melta Bombs.

1 Grey Knight Dreadnought (Heavy Support) @ 145 Pts
Missile Launcher; Twin Lascannon
Extra Armour

1 Grey Knight Dreadnought (Heavy Support) @ 145 Pts

Extra Armour

These give you what you need, long range support. As i said before you can get rid of one and add Chimeras.

Overall its a good basic solid list. Good luck!

Let me save you some trouble.
A Zealot is a chapter approved unit for the Witchhunters.

This is an except of the Witchhunters, F.A.Q's

Q: Where can I find the rules for Zealots to add to my Witch Hunters army?

A: Zealots are Chapter Approved as of US White Dwarf 292, Page 82. Also, in UK White Dwarf is #304, page 55.

Zealots or "Fanatics" are a converter's dream. They have no dead set image, here is an idea a memebr on the forum as come up with.

(Note: Look at the ones that look like armour KKK members. )
