Witch Hunters and Space Marines

what's up guys?
I'm new(er) to 40k and I play Witch Hunters and Space Marines
I'v played in 2 tournaments so far, and won them both! (won a $100 gift card, figuring out what to get next.

I got the space marines out of black reach (split the kit with my brother) and I am currently painting them imperial fists.
My army:
2 x 10 man tactical squads (flamer and rocket launchers in each, 1 set from black reach)
1 captain (black reach)
1 Dreadnought (black reach)
5 Terminators (black reach)
1 Darnath Lysander

I just got the witch hunters and the codex is confusing me a little.
My army:
2 x 10 battle sisters (stormbolter and flamer each squad)
1 Seraphim Squad (5 models)
1 Exorcist
1 Canoness

I'm having a bit of trouble getting through the witch hunters codex and was wondering if getting the $50 rule book with the story line would help with some of the terms? Also, I just won a tournament and a $100 gift card, wondering if you guys have any suggestions?

Some of the things I am considering are:
rhino
immolator
another battle sisters squads
inquisitor lord with retinue
Officio Assassinonorum
Acro-flagellants
pretty much anything, looking for suggestions

I am looking into building a force that will play mainly 750-2000 points.

any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated

-Dan

Hey, Welcome to Heresy! Congrats on your wins! Seems like you're a natural at this game, I'm the complete opposite! If you've got Black Reach, I would suggest you start the Space Marines with the Space Marine Strike Force set, it's $240, so with your Gift Card, it's only $140, and it gives your 1500 points right out of the box! Well, good luck on your hobby, post some pics of your army as it progresses!

Hello and welcome to Heresy Online!

Does sound like you're good at the game, congratulations on you're win! $100 prize? That's very good, double congratulations Both Rhino's and Immolators are well worth looking into depending on which army you're going to stick with and expand.

I hope you enjoy your stay on the website!

Regards,
Jake.

Hello and welcome to Heresy!

I suggest some mobility would be something that may interest you.

I dont know about daemon hunters that much but generally mobility is an all around important thing so thats where I would go.

Cheers,

Chaosftw

as far as i am aware you cant have sisters in a SM army, only storm troops and the inq

Please listen to my PODCAST

Thanks for all the welcome!
I just got a sisters immolator/rhino, and I'm looking to get another

also, I am having trouble trying to play the space marines with my sisters, I am going mainly sisters now, but I am still having trouble allying/inducting troops. (I don't understand it in the codex)

I feel that I have a solid 1000 point list in mind, and will eventually put it in the lists section
