Hey everyone, looking to start a knight force and this is the list I’ve come up with, let me know your thoughts:

This is my first ever knight list so picked what I think is a good mix of knights and weaponry.

Will be House Cadmus due to liking their scheme and fluff

Super Heavy Auxiliary Detachment

Knight warden
Thunderstrike gauntlet
Avenger Gatling cannon
Heavy stubber
Heavy flamer
Stormspear rocket pod 461

Knight Errant
Reaper chainsword
Thermal Cannon
Meltagun
Stormspear rocket pod 453

Knight Crusader
Rapid fire battle cannon
Avenger Gatling cannon
Heavy stubber
Heavy flamer. 481

Super Heavy Auxiliary Detachment

Knight Castellan
Plasma decimator
Volcano lance
Shieldbreaker missiles
Twin meltaguns
Siegebreaker cannons 604

Total points 1999

You know you can fit 4 knights in a super heavy detachment (lance worth 6 CP)

Don’t need to take a Castellan in an aux detachment

Think the crusader might be missing a shoulder weapon. Pushes you a few points over.

@Clingy thanks, was away so didn't have rule book to hand!

 

@Ipsen just checked over them and the sums looks right to me...out of interest what do you tally it up as?

 

Is that the right mix of knights or should I should swap one out for some Amigers? Perhaps the Crusader?

Depends on what you want, and what you have. Are your knights assembled yet? And also are they magnetised?

That always helps

Haven’t even bought any yet! All I have is the codex so open to all suggestions. The only things I know for sure is I want to collect house Cadmus and would like a balanced shooting and close combat list.

If it were me personally I would build a crusader and a Gallant. Two star performers from the codex and they are both really fun to use. But if you Magnetised you can literally just swap about as you please.

The Gallant is just too much fun not to try.

I'm pretty sure it should be 485 as swapping out the thermal cannon adds a second heavy stubber.

Twin Icarus auto cannon is 30 points which gives your Gallant a bit of insurance versus flying units. This brings your total to 1992. Knight lists are never exactly 2k so this is suitable.

Yeah I like your list, it’s got a few options. Your other alternative is to drop the meltagun on the Gallant and then take another storm spear rocket pod. Takes your total to 1994 I think.

*Edit* you could even strip all extra carapace weapons and instead squeeze in an Armiger Warglaive for 164 points to join the team bringing an additional 12 wounds to chew through.

Depends on whether or not you want to spring cash for the warglaives. They look cool but are inferior to the Hellverins counterparts(174 points) so you’d probably be better just keeping the Carapace weaponry :)

Thanks buddy, made the changes to my list above. Put Icarus autocannons on the crusader so it can sit further back with them and then Stormspears on the Gallant and Warden.
