So I find myself with a partial (95%) painted army and was wondering how best to play it once it’s up and running.

 

I’m in complete unknown territory here having only ever used GSC in kill team. I’m in no way competitive and really don’t care about tournaments etc but I’d like to be able to at least do some damage in casual games and a crusade that my mate is starting up with a few of us soon. So here is what I have and if anyone could tell me what to add to my list so I can purchase them that would be great and what to drop. 
 

1 Patriarch and 2 familiars

1 Magus and 2 familiars

1 Magus

1 Primus

1 Kelermorph

1 Jackal Alphus

2 Acolyte Iconwards

1 Abominant

40 Neophyte Hybrids

20 Acolyte Hybrids

10 Aberants 

10 Brood Brothers & 2 Man Heavy Weapon

15 Purestrain Genestealers

5 Atalanta Jackals (1 squad)

1 Cult Armoured Sentinel

1 Cult Scout Sentinel

1 Goliath Rockgrinder

1 Leman Russ

1 Cult Chimera

 

I worked out the power level to be around 106ish so is that around 1000 points?

 

Not sure what cult I’m going to run them as yet. But I will do my own homebrew one I reckon.

I’ll add some pics tomorrow if I get time.

Welcome to the cult! Always nice to see a new member :) You have all ready a very good collection of model and I only see a couple of more things that you can add. I was thinking one more unit of bikes, 1 sanctus (I use the sniper one), a couple of ridgerunners and add some more acolytes. Otherwise you have a great collection.

Your estimate is a bit off - you've got around 2500 points of stuff there (including 750 in HQs alone, and another 650 in elites).

As Ulfast says, you can never have too many acolytes, and you're missing ridgerunners completely.

Some of the elite characters can be fun for adding flavour, like the biophagus if you want to lean into aberrants, or the sanctus for anti-psyker shenanigans, or the clamavus if you fancy the idea of ambushing onto the board and launching a wave of charges.

If you're looking to put a 2000 point list together, I'd probably lose some of the neophytes and/or brood brothers - I'm not sure you need 50 of them on the table.

And then trim down the HQ department. You have eight, and a battalion allows you three. Patriarch, Primus and Magus is a good combination (and allows them all to have a warlord trait). Or, alternatively, squeeze a heavy weapon squad out of the brood brothers for a third heavy support option and play a brigade, in which case you could keep the abominant alongside the aberrants.

Cheers rogue! Wow I didn’t realise how much I had points wise. Blimey! Well today I bought a box of start collecting, a box of Atalan jackals and a Sanctus. I want 2 more ridgerunners I think.

You can make the weapons interchangeable - there's a quick tutorial a few topics down. Out of the box you can have the mortar and one of the other two, or get an extra arm and have all three.

I'm liking the heavy laser at the moment - we don't tend to have a lot of ranged anti-tank firepower, so d3 S9 shots is nice. The mortar is an option too, but I have lots of ways to kill infantry already.

Depending on how serious your opponents are, I'd also suggesting making one of each and then simply saying 'Today they're all mortars', or whatever. But that may not fly everywhere.

So here’s the painted stuff I picked up last week. Not a fan of cork bases so I’ll probably rebase them all although I do like the vehicles on cork.

So I have a crusade game with my friend who is playing custodes and is very competitive on Friday afternoon and we’re doing 50 power level and just wanted some advice on this list. I’m still learning the game so I’m still not clued up on everything yet. I know his list will be set out to wreck me rolleyesclean.gif  but I’m in it for the fun so I don’t care but I’d like to at least bloody his nose lol. Anyway here’s a list I’ve come up with and wondering if anyone could give me a heads up on anything that could be changed.

Any chance of changing the text to not be white on a white background? On my mobile, this is just a vast expanse of nothing with a few bullet point markers...

Interesting. The first thing I'd suggest is to get the new codex. I like the old one, but the new one is a lot more fun.

Your Magus only seems to have one power. He can only cast one, but knows two and Smite. My own preference for a magus is to take the Crouchling relic and the Cult Psyche pre-game stratagem, giving him a third power, a second cast, and +1 to his roles. It costs 2cp, but makes him much more effective.

You might consider putting the two units of genestealers together into a ten-model brood. Flurry of Claws won't activate with less than 10 models, so two 5s hit less hard than one 10.

However, you might also consider dropping the stealers for more acolytes. For 150 points you can have 10 acolytes with an icon and four mining weapons, with points over. Using the Genetic Lineage stratagem, they can play much the same role as stealers, but also benefit from the Cult creed, which the stealers won't.

(Likewise your Brood Brothers, who also don't get creeds. Make them neophytes with the same weapon options (well, a mining laser, but it's similar) and they get the creed and access to the Goliath if they need it.)

And lastly, I'd consider switching the Jackal Alphus for a Primus. The main damage-dealers in this list are combat units (aberrants and genestealers (or acolytes)), so would really benefit from the Primus' +1 to hit aura, especially if you boost it outwards another 3" with the Alien Majesty warlord trait.

Hopefully that gives you a few ideas to mull over.

I’m using the new codex mate. I only have 10 acolytes at the moment in total so I’m gonna have to buy a few more boxes down the road I think. Right I can take the brood bros out and replace with neophytes that’s not a problem and also swap the jackal alphus for the Primus too isn’t a problem.

 

Cheers for the suggestions Rogue looks like I got some rearranging to do biggrin.png

Ah. You might be using the new codex, but Battlescribe isn't (yet). So in the list you posted, various stats, rules and points costs are out-of-date.

I did wonder if BattleScribe was up to date. I might hand write it out instead

Sooo pretty much everything in this list is incorrect, points, weapons, upgrades etc.

 

However I will give some advice.

1) magus can only have 1 familiar

2) Dont take different weapons on a ten man neophite weapon, in fact, dont any neophytes in pauper princes as they suck. They are only viable in rusted claw or with the custom creed to ignore modifiers.

3) Dont take icons, especially not on acolytes, especially not on 5 man acolytes and especially if you have a iconward there.

4) Jackals are such an amazing unit, please dont put a wolfquad in there

5) GSC has some of the best pregame upgrades, please use them

Cheers for the tips mate. I’ve taken the quad out and removed one familiar too. I have to take neophytes as I don’t have enough acolytes. I’m using power level as that’s how me and my mate are playing it.

You were right mate. I thought I’d imported the new GSC BattleScribe file into BattleScribe but you can only do it on android, windows and macOS. I’ve done it now through my pc and building a force now. 
 

I’m such a noob! Cheers for the heads up by the way. Gives me a lot to think about.
