2000pt list, found a way to use the summoning

  • I made the following list because I was looking for a way to get use out of the librarian summoning ability as I though it seemed good but couldn't find the right way to use it. Previously I'd tried it with the librarian being the forward element of the army and then summoning allies in to help out.

    This list uses the librarian as a defensive unit with his inquisition buddies. He shrouds the dreads and his unit gives support fire and counter-assault. The other more mobile elements of the army are there to get to grips with the enemy and take the fight to them, if they get into trouble the librarian can safely call them home and out of harms way. He can also pull them back if my defensive base is under attack.

    Overall the army packs alot of firepower spread all around and with the terminators and purifiers also has a bit of CC ability as well.

    Librarian Stave, Shrouding, Might Of Titan, Sanctuary, Summoning   205
    Ordo Xenos Inquisitor Rad Grenades, Psycho Grenades, Hammerhand + Force Sword, 2x Servo Skull, Power Armour   99
    2x Jokearo, 1x Mystic, 3x Acolyte - Meltagun, 3x Deathcult Assasins   167
    Chimera   5*
    5x Strike Knights Psycannon, MC Hammer   125
    Razorback Psybolts, Searchlight   51
    5x Strike Knights Psycannon, MC Hammer   125
    Razorback Psybolts, Searchlight   51
    5x Terminators Psycannon, 3x Halberds, Hammer   225
    5x Terminators Psycannon, 3x Halberds, Hammer   225
    8x Purifiers - 2x Psycannons, Hammer, 5x Halberds   227
    Rhino   4*
    Dreadnought - 2x TL Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo   135
    Dreadnought - 2x TL Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo   135
    Dreadnought - 2x TL Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo   135

    Total= 2000pts


    Had one game with it so far and it did well, handily beating a bloodangels force in a kill point game. The summoning was awesome, twice retrieving routed terminator squads who were being shepperded off the board, damn tank shocks ;) and the dreads proved once again how great they are.
    Also I learnt that even just three DCA's are pretty brutal when backed up with grenades, my libby and henchman squad delt with a TH/SS termy squad taking just one casualty.

  • When you said you found a way to use Summoning I thought you were going to say by using two Librarians, one in the forward element and one in the Firebase and have units get summoned back and forth as needed.

    Mystics and Teleort homers are advantageous to this strategy.

    As would GKSS to prevent some DSing close to your fire base.

    In this list a Purgation squad of 5 w 4 Incinerators and a THer for 105 points of Flame Purification is an effective unit for the points and can get summoned into the fray accurately.

    You may be able to go vehicle free with this list too.

    Mordrak could be handy in a list of this type too, obvious with your one Libby version on the theme.

    Dread Knights are not usually my cup of tea but they could fit here too.


    But as to your specific list posted:

    - The Stave on the Libby in the fire base is not needed as much as it would be on the forward Libby.
    - recheck the points on your Inq.
    - I seems search lights might be in vogue again due to Necrons

    I like the List, let us know how it works out going forward.
