After a quick skim I have a few pointers.

1) You don't have a HQ. Draigo is a Lord of War so he does not fill the mandatory HQ selection.

I would suggest a Mastery Level 3 Librarian. I take mine with a Hammer as well he comes in 140 points and does quite well in games.

2) If running a squad of Paladins I would always take 2 Psycannons. They are the only real ranged anti tank we have aside from a Combi-Melta on a Libby or  few other vehicle mounted wepons.

3) As awesome as Purifiers are they don't really gel with the rest of the force.

4) Your NDK's look pretty solid. That is excatly how I have been running mine lately.

Thanks for the feedback, i didn't know i needed another HQ, what would be the best way to take down the Centurions with Grav Cannons, they seem like they can tear me apart. My only thought at the moment is charge with paladins or storm raven missiles at them. Yea my brother and i aren't strict on rules, i let him use black star.

Librarian with Psychic shriek will end Terminators.

The next best option is honestly just regular Storm Bolters. Force them to make LOTS of saves and they will die.

His list is designed to deal with your armour.

I have a friend of mine (more like an enemy) in which we played together more than I played anyone else. He got all butt hurt about me mopping the floor with his chaos space marines. He grew and learned new ways of quickly killing my armour in which I relied on.

Notice that he has all melta and lascannons everywhere as well at the grav. I bet when you see his force you think. "Damn those alpha striking grav cents again must remove them".

What I came to realize was that the gk are psychic masters.

Remove draigo and the Paladins. His melta and lascannons will chew your Paladins up negating there fnp and 2 wounds.  Plug in 2 librarians master the psychic powers

Psychic shriek removing his hammernators and cents
Invisibility just good in so many ways
Sanctuary give those terminators of your a ++4
Foreboding(I think) make all your shooting rending against a unit

There are ways of linking the librarian spells together
I haven't even tried the librarians spells yet

Good luck knight!

If you are going to add 2x Librarians I would suggest that you take them with ML3 and Hammer. 140pts for a very solid model. Having WS5 they seem to hit more often with their Hammers then a generic guy. Plus there hammers are cheaper (because you loose the warding stave which to be honest isn't really that usful.) If you have the points you could even throw in Master Crafted or a Combi-Melta for the Libby as well.

I look forward to seeing your next list.

I realise his army is good against armor, with grav cannons etc, but as i have already bought 2 terminator squads, what is the best loadout for them to beat his army, e.g. 10 terminator squad, or 2x 5 terminators or 1 paladin x5 and 1 terminator x5. and what are the best weapons for them, as my opponent has terminators with thunder hammers and storm shields, i want to compete against them.

You won't be able to compete with the hammer assault terminators in close combat. So don't bother you are going to have to rely on shooting them up force them to make as many saves as possible. Mass bolter fire force some cleansing flame on them.


As for your terminators make them small 5 man squads. Your special is deepstrike on turn 1 so don't make big 10 man squads that can't be placed due to misshaped. You can also try making a 10 man squad and then placing them in combat squads and putting 2 psycannons in the same squad.

The Purifiers and Purgnation squads don't really fit in. They don't really have any synergy with the rest of your list.

The Pallies can get away with 0 hammers if you put both of your Librarians with them who are both holding hammers.

The Terminator Squads does need a hammer though. Drop a hammer from the Pallies and give it to them.
