Hello all.¬†¬†Long time lurker here and I am looking for some input with my Imperial Knights list.¬†¬†Im not looking for a competitive list (I just play pickup games) but I am aiming to win the games I play¬†ūüėä

 

I make all my armies for 2k points.  Right now I am at 1850 and am wondering what others think I should do with the leftover points.  I am sold on 3 bigs and 3 littles (for objective holding)

 

I am going house Terryn but mostly because I like their color scheme and I bought a Knight right when they first came out and it has a battle cannon (the Terryn relic makes the battle cannon much better).  The Gallant could be changed out and I have no carapace weapons yet.

 

So should I just slap carapace weapons on everything?¬†¬†Is a run straight¬†ahead Gallant "good" on this list?¬†¬†Should I spend 2 more CP and bring some guard or marines in to hold objectives?¬†¬†Is 6 CP ‚Äúenough‚ÄĚ for Knights?

I came up with this as a possible addition.

Very small force that can maybe do an action or get engage or hold a rear objective.

 

It might also be able to assassinate 1 key target if their screening falls apart.

I might also consider a callidus assassin for your current force.  Their ability to harm the enemy cp might make it harder to alpha down a knight, and you could flex her into a culexus if you fight heavy psykers. 

 

Not sure what to do with the extra 50 pts.

Ugh. Just realized knights cant take assasins without another force.

You need to add a Patrol of some kind, like with those Scions. But once that’s done, the Agents of the Imperium special rule will kick in:

AGENT OF THE IMPERIUM

If your army is Battle-forged, you can include 1 AGENT OF THE IMPERIUM unit in each IMPERIUM (excluding FALLEN) Patrol, Battalion and Brigade Detachment in your army without those units taking up slots in those Detachments.[/quote]
