I have an idea for running Inquisition with Plasma and Chimera with Psybolt Heavy Bolters, or a double NDK list. I feel like I have two options, flood the field with cheap bodies or bring enough big distractions to get my kills through.

I can bring two Daemonhunter forces with strikes and fully kitted NDKs along with three custodes squads and Guilliman. Thats 28 bodies, 50 ish wounds, 37 with EW.

If you're referring to the Daemonhunter Strike force from C:IA, I don't think you can use GK Strike squads for the troop choice. It has to be GK Terminators.

The only stated restriction in the DHSF detachment is that the units taken must be Faction:GK, so I think Strike Squads are permitted. Most people seem to want use Fast Attack Rhinos as minimum taxes for NDKs; taking Strikes hardly seems an abuse to me!

What people of course are missing is that the DHSF allows you to have an entire army of Purgation Squads in FA Rhinos...

Alright I'll take interceptors and bring incinerators instead of psilencers.

True, I can bring 10 squads, 4 with psycannons, 4 with incinerators, and 2 with psilencers along with 10 rhinos for exactly 1850, but is that any good?

I like the idea of Knight Titans with my Custodes, but I feel like two NDKs is better mileage. I think I will wait for the Saggitareum upgrade sets from FW and use their helmets on my NDKs.
