Deepstrike EVERYTHING!

Interesting looking list, it's got some real power in the two dreadknights and Interceptors are, of course, versatile - but you also have the usual GK problem of having a 40 odd model count in a 2000 point army, meaning that you will need to play very much to terrain in order to minimise the amount of fire power you are receiving or you'll lose everyone to mere weight of fire.

Can't Deepstrike EVERYTHING, sadly.

The plan is that Mordrak drops down w/ his four Ghost Knights, and the Librarian is joined to the unit. First to the Fray gets them in first turn, and precise. They need to survive a turn alone, but the Dreadknights and Interceptors can shunt forward first turn to get close enough to support.

With Psychic Communion, I should be able to bring the 2 Strike Squads in turn 2, and they get to come down on the Librarian's teleHomer. I can also combat squad, and leave one or two in the backfield.

You're absolutely right. I had strike squads of 12 men. I actually have 80 points to work with. Thoughts?

After looking at some of the issues pointed out to me, and realizing that I should pay more attention to the errors Battlescribe was screaming at me, here's the new list...

Grand Master Mordrak
+5 Ghost Knights: 2 Halberd, 2 Sword, 1 BroBanner

Librarian
Lv2, Brain Mines, Warding Stave, Teleport Homer, Hammerhand + 6 powers

GK Strike Squad
9+1, PsyAmmo, x2 Psycannons, Halberd on Justicar

GK Strike Squad
9+1, PsyAmmo, x2 Psycannons, Halberd on Justicar

GK Interceptor Squad
9+1, PsyAmmo, x2 Incinerators, Halberd on Justicar

Nemesis Dreadknight
Greatsword, Hvy Incinerator, PT

Nemesis Dreadknight
Greatsword, Hvy Incinerator, PT


The extra points that were found because I don't know how to read a roster went into filling out the Ghost Knights as strong as possible. I decided to give them a Brotherhood Banner, which will also boost Mordrak and the Librarian while they're in the squad.Seemed like a decent investment. Additional points went into giving the Librarian more tricks to play as a swiss army knife.

Alternatively, I could have given the Librarian level 3 with more powers, but I felt that an extra wound around the lynchpin unit was a better investment.
