A storm is on the horizon - Triple Stormraven 2000 points
« on: December 28, 2013, 02:04:59 AM »
Alright, so first things first, I'm attempting to make a decent list at 2K (not necessarily tournament quality, but I'd liked to put up a good fight) using at a minimum the following models:
-3 Stormravens
-5 Grey Knight Terminators
The army list shall be Codex: Space Marines primary and Codex: Grey Knights allies with whatever chapter tactics (Forgeworld included) best allow this type of list to be run.

My chapter, the Brotherhood of Tesla follows an extremely unorthodox chapter organization wherein the 1000 marines are broken up into 5 houses each dedicated to the study of one particular type of warfare. 

House Iridi:  Heavy Armor (Terminators, Centurions, Dreadnoughts, etc.)
House Kinos:  Conventional propellant projectile weaponry (Boltguns, Heavy Bolters, Assault Cannons, Missile Launchers, Flamers, Sniper Rifle, etc.)
House Novum:  Energy projectile weaponry (Plasma, Melta, Las, Graviton, etc.)
House Arken:  Melee combat (Swords, Halberds, Axes, Maces, Fists, Hammers, Drills, etc.)
House Xeres:  Mobile warfare (Bikes, Jump Packs, Fast Vehicles, Flyers, etc.)

I'm still in the process of finalizing the makeup of each house, but I've got provisions to allow the fielding of most units from Codex: Space Marines and Codex: Grey Knights.

My chapter master and 2/5 captains are either already built, or are partially built so my HQ options might be somewhat hamstrung due to background I've already written and the corresponding models I've already built.

Grand Artificer (Chapter Master) Horatio Cromwell [BUILT]
-Terminator Armor
-Shield Eternal
-Power weapon of some sort

Artificer Captain Gaius Maxim (House Kinos) [UNBUILT]
-Terminator Armor
-The Primarch's Wrath
-Undecided melee weapon

Artificer Captain Jericho Callahan (House Novum) [BUILT]
-Artificer Armor
-Plasma Pistol
-Graviton Pistol

Artificer Captain Zerek Mobius (House Iridi) [UNBUILT]
-The Armor Indomitus
-Undecided ranged weapon

Artificer Captain Tiberius Locke (House Arken) [UNBUILT]
-Artificer Armor
-The Burning Blade

Master of the Forge Octavius Voltaire (House Xeres) [UNBUILT]
-Space Marine Bike
-Conversion Beamer



Here's the rough sketch of the list so far, I'm using the Red Hunters chapter tactics from Forgeworld as it allows Space Marines to have Grey Knight battle brothers as long as I have an Inquisitor in the force somewhere.

==HQ==
Space Marine Terminator Captain Gaius Maxim – 155
–The Primarch’s Wrath, Chainfist
Ordo Malleus Inquisitor – 119
–Terminator Armor, Dæmon Hammer, Psycannon, Psyker Lvl. 1 (Hammerhand), 3 Servo-skulls

==Troops==
Space Marine Tactical Squad (5) – 95
–Veteran Sergeant, Combi-flamer, Flamer
Space Marine Tactical Squad (5) – 95
–Veteran Sergeant, Combi-flamer, Flamer
Space Marine Tactical Squad (5) – 95
–Veteran Sergeant, Combi-flamer, Flamer
Grey Knight Terminator Squad – 225
–3 Halberds, 2 Hammers, Psycannon

==Heavy Support==
Stormraven – 240
–Twin-linked Multi-melta, Twin-linked Assault Cannon, Hurricane Bolter Sponsons, Locator Beacon
Stormraven – 240
–Twin-linked Multi-melta, Twin-linked Assault Cannon, Hurricane Bolter Sponsons, Locator Beacon
Stormraven – 240
–Twin-linked Multi-melta, Twin-linked Assault Cannon, Hurricane Bolter Sponsons, Locator Beacon

==Fortification==
Firestorm Redoubt – 220
–Communications Relay

Total - 1724

First up, I need something to sit in the Firestorm Redoubt until my Stormravens can show up as that re-roll on reserves is the lynchpin of this list seeing as over 1/3 of the points are in the Stormravens alone, and a full half of the list including the Tactical Squads inside the Stormravens.

Overview of the army, Grand Artificer (Chapter Master) Horatio Cromwell, and my Arch Enchanter (Chief Librarian) Timothy (Some call him, Tim?) Ignatio in terminator and power armor (still need to add the horns to the power armor version).

Cool looking army. You can run them as grey knights also.
