40k Library Lists - The Full Force of the Inquisition (Part 1)

Welcome to Library Lists, a weekly part of my blog where I try to make a list that's entirely based around a fluffy background, but won't go flat on his face in a competitive environnement
In a nutshell: fluff first, competitive second!
So if you're looking for an army that appears to be taken right out of Dan Abnetts hands, just klick 'Library Lists' in the Index and look for something that meest your taste.

Today, everything is about the following idea: "When an Inquisitor calls upon an army, what army would that be, how would it look like,...?".
Well, we know an Inquisitor can basically call any army to the field, but where looking now for one that just screams 'Inquisition'. So no Space Marine Companies, Grey Knight Purifier Legions, 3Man Squads in Razorbacks,... We could try to use a Guard list or alike, but Grey Knights are just way more fitting.
So now I'll go over the different units, and why I think they fit the setting:

Blood Angels @ 750pts

I was scooping around Beasts of War, and saw a topic about a new player asking what he should go with @ 750pts. So, I went digging deep inside my head and made up some lists that I'd like to play with.

Remember, these were meant for someone who didn't want to go Mech and wanted to get back into the game (so descent balance,..).

With those things in mind, what can we do? Well, from my point of view, these are some of the best options:

June 2nd... Flyers!

Yes, Beasts of War have just previewed some amazing news, which they are going to show of this night... At their Turn 8 web program!

So without further ado:

That’s right guys… Tonight’s show is all about the new… wait for it… Space Marine Stormtalon… the Necron Doom & Night Scythes… plus the new Ork Biltza-BommerDakkajet and Burna-Bommer! and we expect these bad boys to hit the shelves, perhaps around June 2nd?

We’ll have a “look” at them in more detail and discuss some of the special rules you might expect for such awesome hardware!
Who would you want to be a Fighter Ace that shoots down enemy skimmers?
What if one could  shrug off Melta weapons?
Would you want a flier that turns up and strafes across enemy lines?
We'll discuss it all, tonight on Turn 8! 1

Doubles Tournament 20th May

Yes, and me's teaming up with Francis' Guard. That means 1000points of pure pieplate & anti-tank kill for him (hydra's, lemons, vendetta's, vets in boxes,...), and for me... Well, there are two options.

1st: In-your-face stuff. So that's a lot of assault and sacrifice... Something I don't really like.
2nd: Bubble-wrap his tanks and play supportive... Back him up, protect him from enemy attacks.

I went for the 1st option, basically because that still allows me to play a bit like I like playing 40k: Guerilla Strike, that is. I can still make great use of DS, which is off course what I live for (really, if they dare to throw that away in 6th...)

Librarian (BL & UR) - 100

8 Death Company (2x Pfists) - 210
  Rhino - 50
AM's with Melta/PSword - 125

DC Dreadnought with HF - 135
  Drop Pod - 35

VVets  (JPacks & Hammer) - 175
