1850 Grey Knights
« on: September 17, 2012, 10:06:53 AM »
I am working on an 1850 list for a tournament and would like some help improving upon. Any ideas would be great; I am open to drastic changes if it will improve the list. I don't think the tournament will be ultra competitive where I will see Necron flyer lists, but I will see some list list with 2-3 flyers.

The basic plan is to advance into midfield with the Purifiers leading the way and hopefully being the primary targets for my opponents.  It is a list that looks to move into mid field and engage in short to medium range firefight, and push your opponents out of the midfield. If you wish to add allies, I also have Necrons and Dark Angels, though they could stand in for random marines. I could see this list having a little trouble with an IG parking lot list, so any help would be appreciated.

if you posted this on the BOLS lounge theyd throw a shitfit

anyway, its odd that you have psycannons on your units when they cant fire them while riding their razorbacks. apart from the dreadnoughts and the purifier razorbacks you've got little in the way of real anti-tank, which could be a problem.

That is why I posted it on a site with good players.

I plan on getting out of the Rzorbacks on turn 1 or 2 to be able to shoot the Psycannons; which gives me a lot more anti-tank.

I've been playing a similar list recently (albeit with Guard allies), and I don't think full MSU is the way to go anymore; I'd look to bring two of those GKSS squads up to full strength. You should be able to manage it by dropping a purifier squad, which I have been finding tend to underperform compared to strike squads anyways. If you can find points to grab psybolt on the larger squads, then all the better. Putting a psychic power onto that librarian would be really nice as well, but depends on how many points you have lying around, which already seems tight.

If you have Necrons, I'd strongly recommend a flier based allied detachment; it seems really strong (at least on paper).
