First list – Ecclesiarchy

Postby Smith » September 26th, 2011, 6:52 pm

So here's my first attempt at a ItEN list (odds are it's full of errors and miscalculations!). It's not the most competitive, I suspect, but it fits nicely with my figure collection, and is painting up pretty swiftly. The Bishop is a full conversion, using bits and pieces from the Imperial Guard, Marines and Empire ranges (photos to follow, hopefully). Comments and criticism welcomed!

1x Bishop (31pts)
Grit: 4+
FV: +3
SV: +0
Speed: +0
Notes: Leader, Invokes Faith, Immune to psychic powers
Gear: Refractor Shield, Shotgun, Powerfist (or Force weapon, depending on the final model)

1x Priest (31pts)
Grit: 3+
FV: +1
SV: +1
Speed: +0
Notes: Invokes Faith
Gear: Plasma Gun, No Armour

2x Zealots (34pts)
Grit: 3+
FV: +1
SV: +0
Speed: +1
Gear: Shotguns, No Armour

3x Imperial Guardsmen (48pts)
Grit: 4+
FV: +1
SV: +2
Speed: +0
Gear: Lasguns, Flak Armour

1x Imperial Guardsman (16pts)
Grit: 4+
FV: +1
SV: +2
Speed: +0
Gear: Flamethrower, Flak Armour

2x Imperial Guardsmen (40pts)
Grit: 4+
FV: +1
SV: +2
Speed: +0
Gear: Hellguns, Carapace Armour

200pts

There is a logic behind the over-tooled Priest – I'm using the classic Imperial Missionary figure with plasma gun instead of one of the regular preacher figures. Still he feels a little out of place (not to mention vulnerable!), so I'm considering tweaking the list a bit and coming up with a Missionary option – something like:

Imperial Missionary
Grit: 3+
FV: +2
SV: +2
Speed: +0
Notes: Invokes Faith (5pts)

Armour-wise, Flak or Refractor Shield at the most, I think. For the Invoke Faith range, I'd be inclined to use the Bishop's 9" range to reflect the fact that they're carrying big religious icons (can be seen from afar!), and are more inspirational preachers than most – hence the missionary role.

Looks like a really interesting list.

I'd stick with the plasma-gun toting Priest personally. You really need somehting that can make Space Marines nervous at range. Use cover and give him some bodyguards.

Overall this is a retinue that needs cover to use its firepower to whittle down the enemy before engaging flamethrower and Invoke faith getting up close and personal with your Bishop.
Cheers,
Craig.

Tidy looking list--you might consider squeezing in a Sororitas model or something to represent a Crusader in place of a Guardsman or two.

House Cawdor from Necromunda is notable for its devotion to the Faith--perhaps even a religious Hive Ganger?
