Default Deathwing with grey knight allies 1500 points

Heya, thought I would pass this list past those of you who haven't had 200 orks to throw around the table for the last decade. :P

I wanted an army that I felt was the polar opposite of my orks, so I settled on the Deathwing.

-HQ-

Belial with lightning claws = 130

Grey Knight Grand Master - Psycannon, psychichood = 195


-ELITES-

Venerable dreadnaught with missile launcher and plasma cannon = 155

Grey Knight terminators - 3 Terminators, 1 with psycannon. Brother captain with psycannon = 249


-TROOPS-

Deathwing Terminators - Assault cannon, apocathery = 270 points

Deathwing Terminators - Assault cannon = 245 points

Deathwing Terminators - Assault cannon = 245 points



Total =
1489

This looks like murder against hordes like say your orks but what happens when you come across heavy vehicles?

Can you even do this? I thought that it says that you can not ally with the Dark Angels chapter...

Yes it is a legal list dark angels just do not get a rule that no longer exists.

I like it. I don't have my codex handy but if you give 2 of your sargents combi melta it would help with the deepstrike near tanks issue and anything left can be assaulted. like wise hammer hand on your grandmaster can be just as nasty.

at 1500 this list is either win big or lose big. at 2000 points I would add in raven wing bikes, personally.

there is my 2 cents and now I am broke. =D

Well I love it. I do not think you could possibly make a more elitist army.

All terminators with some super terminators thrown in. Nice.

You will have trouble against very mobile/mechanised armies though, but it's totally worth it.

Assault Cannons tend to be pretty effective anti-tank anyway. Against Armour 14, they work essential as well as one lascannon. I don't think that enemy armour is your biggest concern. Assault Cannons in Deathwing Squads are one of the most flexible units in the game.

I don't think that the grey Knights really add a whole lot to the list. Your terminators alone are quite efficient a they are, and scoring as well. I can understand the Grand Master as a Psychic-hood carrier, but I would downgrade him to a Brother Captain and save points.

The Dread, being your only armour, I cannot expect to last many games. It'll be the focus of a vast majority of your opponents anti-tank fire. Dreads are one of the things you take two of in a list like this, or none at all.

Reckon I could go ahead with the army as it stands?

I'm sure it could work fine, but it's not optimal, for reasons which I stated.
