2500 Point list

Following the release of 8th edition and with a pretty hectic gaming schedule in the next few weeks I’ve been busy reworking my army lists.

Most of the games I get to play locally at GW or at our local club are around the 2500 point mark which happens to be my favourite army size.

Now I don’t claim to be a list building God or to have any sort of secret List-Building-Bible-Softbac

 

But I do think there is one big thing that a lot of people miss, particularly with larger armies, start from scratch…

There is no point taking an 1850 point list and tryinget to throw on extra stuff until you hit 2500 likewise if you take a 3k list and try to chop 500 off it will be unbalanced.

So without too much further waffle here is my fairly fluffy not at all optimised 2500pt list which will hopefully come out for a spin later on this week (if I get my finger out on the painting front)

So there we have it not quite 2500 on the nose but close enough for my purposes.

So now we have seen what I’m planning on putting on the table let me give you my rough game plan….

images
run around and kill things…

As I like fluffy lists I don’t have a great deal of vehicles in my list as I can’t imagine many inquisitors running around with a column of heavy tanks hidden in their pockets.

This leaves me at a bit of a disadvantage in the long range anti tank department particularly as the natural allies for Inquisitors – Deathwatch and Grey Knights – are also forces not known for the large amounts of armour they throw down.

The main plan is to have both dreadnoughts and the heavy weapons team sit back and chuck as much dakka downfield.

Meanwhile the hotshot las and storm bolter acolytes along with the flamer scions will provide some numbers in midfield with the Jokaero and my Inquisitor Lord Reikert adding some useful buffs.

My other Inquisitor and her melta/Plas acolytes will hop a lift aboard the corvus along with the watchmaster and his kill team whilst the large scion squad will mount up in the taurox.

The scions will go on a suicide run against any armour or super heavies and if not will be tasked with popping transports and generally causing mischief.

The Inquisition/ Deathwatch rolling in the corvus will hopefully take care of any characters or creatures.

The Grey Knights are all going to start in reserve ready for some alpha strike goodness or as a rapid response force if needed.

Sounds simple really….
