I am attemping to compile a list that is slightly balanced but revolves around something like my following list.  I will mainly be playing against Deathwing, Necrons, Eldar and Space Wolves.  But, this list will more than likely be facing Deathwing the most. Draigo will roll with the Pallys (as a "deathstar") while the Termys/GK SS capture objectives.  I have not used Holocaust before, so I dont know if it would be beneficial to squad up the 10 Pallys so I can use Holocaust twice.  I felt like the GK SS gave some "take on all comers" feel to the list. I also have 1x NDK, 10x GK SS, 10x Purifiers and 10x Terminators that can be used to modify my list.  If you feel that any of these aforementioned models may be utilized more effectively, please let me know.  All opinions/criticisms welcomed, thanks!

Hi!

 

This list is very similar to which I use. The only difference is that I run another 5 men Terminator squad instead of the Purgation squad. And my only concern is with them. The Psybolt ammo is only usable on the Justicar's stormbolter, psycannons don't benefit from it, so you could drop it. But I suggest that drop the whole Purgation squad, take away the DH from the Strike squad and the banner from the Termintor squad and then you can have another Strike squad with 2x psycannon and psybolt ammo. The leftover 5 points could be used to  mastercraft something in the Paladin squad. Or instead of the Strike squad you can add a 5 men Terminator squad which gives you 20 points to play around.

I have never used the Holocaust psychic power. The Hammerhand or the force weapon activation is much better use of the Paladin's psychic potencial, because if you are in Holocaust range then you are in charge range also.

Thank you for your response. I definitely didn't know about the psybolt/psycannon thing so thank you for the heads up haha.  Would it be more effective to combat squad the termys or just mob them? In the case of keeping them as a 10 man squad, I could see the banner coming into use. In you opinion, would you balance the mix of Hammers/Halberds any differently? I made two lists with a few revisions. Let me know what you think, thx!

Looking at what you're utilising in your lists, I'd be tempted to try out something similar to this:

 

Draigo   (275)

Paladin x 10 w. Psycannon x 4, Psybolt Ammo   (650)

Terminator  x 10 w. Psycannon x 2, Psybolt Ammo  (470)

Strike Squad x 5 w. Psycannon   (100)   -   Man ADL

 

Interceptors x 5 w. Psycannon   (140)

Dreadknight w. H.Incinerator, P.Teleporter   (235)

 

ADL w. Quad Gun   (100)

 

This comes to 1,980 and is pretty well rounded. I play in 2,500 point games normally and find it hard fitting in everything I want as I use Terminators as my core - but I find Draigo lists very difficult to work out as Draigo and Paladins are prohibitively expensive. Still - going by the kind of models it seems you have/are willing to use - this is the best I can come up with now while trying to maintain an 'all-round' attitude.
