Who makes the best allies for Knights?

Postby Biodon13 » Thu May 07, 2015 7:38 pm

I have asked this question elsewhere, but I would really like some input. Not sure who I want to use in support of my knights. I have DA and Ultramarines. Am weighing out all of the imperial factions though. Sisters and Guard seem kinda like they would provide decent support. Not sure GK would be so good. Someone else suggested flamer heavy BA.

What do you guys think?

The question depends heavily on your local meta. If your meta has a ton of flyers in it than Sisters wouldn't be of much use. On the other hand if your meta was chalk full of vehicles than suddenly Sisters would be fantastic.

IG or Space Marines probably bring the best versatility to the Knights. Other forces will shore up specific points better but will be correspondingly weaker in other areas.

The obvious answer Skitarii and Admech!

The fluff fits plus you get good troops, anti air is covered with an onager or 2, plus the Infultraitors help Knights in Hand to hand.

Top it off you could ID demon princes and T6 stuff if a vanguard unit locks in to combat to support the knight due to rad poisoning!

One player used a positively nasty combination against me in that he took an AdLance and the Skyhammer (?) formation, resulting three Knights with rerolls and a Stormraven with two Stormtalon escorts. Very harsh and interesting match if your question was in regards to competitive lists.

I am with the Ad Mech suggestion. Its just so cool from a narrative perspective. If I wasn't over-commited in hobby projects I would absolutely consider an ad mech/skitarii/knight force bigtime. From a game play perspective, their shooting potency will create situations where the opponent cannot afford to ignore the knight for the infantry or vis-versa. There is a lot of interesting options backed up by a lot of firepower.

I agree ad mech would be cool. I wanted to do it too but I just started collecting an AM army using DKK models so, I cant build another army just yet.


I do use a knight in my dark angels army sometimes and it seems to work well. I always ran the paladin since I like to roll shooty mostly. Likely run a crusader now for more shooty.
