L30n1d4s Posted November 22, 2012 Share Posted November 22, 2012 I read about how recently a SoB army with GK allies won best general in a tournament (much to the consternation of the Internets ;) ) and it got me thinking.... maybe GK can use them effectively as allies. After all, they seem to bring a couple items to the fight that non-henchman GK armies generally lack: -Cheaper Troops options with relatively good value (i.e. SoB squads) -Fast moving melta options (i.e. Dominions with MGs, Seraphim with Inferno Pistols, etc.) -Long Range, high strength, low AP shooting (i.e. Exorcists) -Cheap, capable Special Characters (i.e. Uriah Jacobus for buffing DCAs, St Celestin for beating up MEQs) Based on this, I tried to put together a reasonable GK list with SoB support. Here is what I came up with: HQ -Draigo *St Celestine TR -5 GK Paladins with 2 MCed Psycannons -Solodin with MC Daemonhammer *10 SoB with Rhino, double MGs FA -Stormraven *5 Seraphim with 4 Inferno Pistols HS -Dreadknight with Greatsword -Dreadknight with Greatsword -Dreadknight with Greatsword *Exorcist --Aegis Defense Line with Quadgun Exactly 2000 points! Draigo goes with Pallies and moves as required (or mans the quadgun and defends the ADL), Celestine move with the Seraphims and nips at the enemy's flanks SoB in rhino maneuver for objectives, Solodin rides in the Stormraven to make it scoring and assault out and tie up a unit as required. Draigo makes as many DKs scoring as possible (i.e. Grand Strategy) and they charge or DS at the enemy lines.... working in conjunction with the Seraphim/Celestine, I think they make quite a "dual threat"... finally, Exorcist sits back in the ADL and shoots away while getting a 4+ cover save. Thoughts? Anyone had success with a GK + allied Sisters list out there? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
