Knights w/Ultramarines?

Post by Biodon13 » Fri Apr 17, 2015 5:54 am

Thinking I want to build a Knights list. Bought a knight last week...entirely motivated by the Knight stuff in Vengeful Spirit...

I'm thinking:

Knights

Errant (warlord)
Paladin
Errant

Marines (Ultramarines chapter tactics)

Captain w/power weapon, plasma pistol, meltabomb

2 x 9 man tac squad w/flamer

9 man assault squad w/sgt plasma pistol, 2 flamers
drop pod

5 man devastator squad w/2 heavy bolters, 2 flakk missiles

1849 points total

My only concern is objective taking...should I drop a couple of the assault marines and make the tac squads full strength so I can combat squad them? Should I drop the devastators all together in favor of a tank of some kind? Or should I consider allying AM instead for anti-air? Lot of choices to be made...

Comments? Questions? Criticisms?

Glad to hear you have got into knights... They are incredible models you will have a blast hobbying and playing it.

I think you should definitely get 10 men in the TAC squads, combat squads can be extremely advantageous.

The space marine captain is a tricky HQ to build around. They can kick some butt, but they need something tough and killy like terminators to back them up. Consider a chaplain to do the same job, he is cheaper, still has 4++, free power weapon, makes the squad fearless and reroll to hit in first turn of combat.

Good thought. I like chaplains too. Just have to buy one...
