Hi! I'm a new player of 40k, and I'm currently building my first list; right now I'm aiming to a 1500 points list, and I already bought some stuff. However, inexperienced as I am, I'm not sure about the decisions I took while planning my list initially and I would love some advice.
First off, I should say that I don't want a competitive list; my friends are very competitive and they are just starting to play right now, If I were to create an army that would win most times, they will probably stop playing and I would be left without anyone to play with. If I manage to get them into the hobby, however, they are very likely to start researching and start getting the best lists possible for their respective armies, judging by their behaviour in other games we played in the past, but I guess I will face that when it comes. My friends have necrons and (maybe, he hasn't decided yet) eldar.
So right now I just have a rough idea of the list I wanted, but, again I have no idea of how it would actually work on the field. These are the minis I've got right now:
-1 Commander (Unassembled)
-10 Strike team firewarriors.
-16 Kroot carnivores and 4 Kroot hounds
-3 Stealth suits
-1 Razorshark Strike Fighter.
-1 Ghostkeel (unassembled)
-1 Riptide (unassembled)
-1 Crisis suit (unassembled)
- Additionally, I will probably soon buy a box of pathfinders for Shadow war armaggedon.
I was thinking of doing a hunter cadre + Optimised stealth cadre + ¿Air caste support?
So, as I am pretty lost, I would love some advice on how I could build a list from where I am at, and what to buy next.
In addition, I have my commander sitting in his box, as I am too scared to assemble it, i am not very handy so I don't know if I would be able to magnetize it and I don't want to regreat the loadout that I'll give him, I was planning to take him with marker drones as a Mark'O, as a source for markerlights, but I still don't know if that is my best bet.
Thank you in advance
