Escalation League: Coteaz 500 Points

gk2 As promised here are some photos of my initial 500 Coteaz Escalation League army. As I mentioned in the podcast, I entered the league so I would be inspired to create the army I had been intending to build since the moment I started Grey Knights, a totally Inquisition henchmen army. Granted there are some dreadnaughts thrown in there as well, but seriously how can a Grey Knight player not bring Psybolt Dreads?

Anyway, for those of you who might have missed it, here is my initial 500 points:

 

HQ:
Inquisitor Coteaz

Troops:
9 Warrior Acolytes with 2 Meltaguns and 7 Bolters
- Chimera with Multilaser and Heavy Flamer

6 Deathcult Assassins and 1 Crusader
- Rhino

Heavy Support:
Dreadnaught with 2 Twin Linked Autocannons and Psybolts

For the deathcults I used Dark Elf Corsairs from fantasy. I have seen people use Dark Eldar Wyches as well, but I didn’t want to use any existing 40k models to prevent confusion. The Crusader is a Bretonian Man-at-Arms with some purity seals thrown on him. Weird how a piece of paper and a wax seal makes him seem from the future… Finally for the Acolytes I used Cadian guardsmen, replacing their flashlights with bolters or meltagun bits I ordered from eBay. The autocannons for the Dread are of course from the Aegis Defense lines that Bill and I happen to have bought a bunch of back when planetstrike came out. Otherwise, everything else is pretty standard stuff.

So far I am pretty happy with my army, though I am still adjusting to the poor BS of the Henchmen squads. While the Deathcult have failed to do much so far, I have mostly fought shooting heavy armies so they are usually get shot down before reaching their target. However, Coteaz will often make back those points once he gets in close combat, assuming the enemy doesn’t have a powerfist. I wont get into the specifics, but the next 500 points will add quite a few more henchmen squads and Chimeras. It will be by far the largest phase of the army in terms of how many models i will need to paint. Hopefully I can complete them in time.

I am really looking forward to continuing the league and the completion of my 1500 Inquisition army!

Episode 16: End of Days

D-Day approaches!  For me anyway … and really I guess it’s W-Day, but whatever, the point is this is the last episode before yours truly is bound by the shackles of love.  As such there will be a little bit of a longer hiatus between episodes 16 and 17 (expected to be three weeks instead of what would be the usual two) so get your Turn 8 while it’s piping hot!  Today’s episode is back to basics with our usual bag of tricks, no special segments and therefore it’s a little more bite sized for those that enjoy a shorter show.  Also, we finally reveal the details about our Blind Fight, so tune in!

*As a side note, we’re testing out a new method of recording the episodes and as such there are a few hiccups.  I feel the quality is better, however, there are times in the episode where one voice blocks out another.  I apologize for this.
