OK folks, had finally my run at a local tourney with the GK+Inq list ("[Competitive]" post below) and managed to arrive LAST :P

What I noticed was mainly the lack of cheap stuff to keep objectives, since I always managed to reach 3rd turn with at least half of my army on the battlefield but always got overrun by oppos milling objectives. Therefore, I've decided to inquinate myself with the usual go for an alliance with Imperial Guard ("Astramiliwhat???" :P) ;)



GK BATTALION (+5 CPs)
- 2x GMiNDK (psilencer, psycannon, dreadfist, greatsword, teleporter, Sanctuary) 2x285
- 10 PAGK (7 pairs of falchions, 1 force halberd, 8 storm bolters, 2 psilencers, Gate of Infinity) 214
- 2x5 PAGK (3 pairs of falchions, 1 force halberd, 4 storm bolters, 1 psilencer, Hammerhand) 2x107

GK VANGUARD (+1 CP)
- Draigo (Purge Soul, Vortex of Doom) 240
- 3x Ven Dread (twin lascannon, missile launcher, 1 with Gate of Infinity and 2 with Astral Aim) 3x185

VOSTROYAN BATTALION (+5 CPs)
- Commander (shotgun, chainsword, Warlord: Grand Strategist, Kurov's Aquila) 30
- Lord Commissar (boltgun, power maul) 35
- 3x10 Guardsmen (sgt with chainsword, sniper rifle) 3x42
- Commissar (boltgun) 16

TOT 2000
14 CPs
112 PLs (56 of which in reserve)



The strategy is to run over objs with Guardsmen, which allow to reach 56 PLs on the ground too (hence the small Commissar, since it's the only choice available for "last 2 PLs in 16 pts only" :P) ;) The bulk of GK strikes from teleport on turn 2, with Draigo joining them thanks to Dread's GoI (from that point on, Dreads will rely on the strat to give aura rerolls to one of them) ;)

That's it, now time for insulting! :P

A lot of people seem to think you can use the relic stratagem on a detachment that isn't your warlord. I don't think it's how the rule was intended but it seems to be a RAW thing. There was an FAQ where they said it was ok for some Chaos stuff.

Look into it but you might get away with GK warlord for first to the fray and pay 1cp for the Guard relic for the aquilla.

It's not that "seem to", it *is* actually like that (clarified exactly with the Chaos FAQ) ;)

I will give a try to F2tF + IG relic too, this version was actually intended to maximize CPs ;) I will also try another version with a Catachan Battalion and a couple of Basilisks :D
