Grey Knight Rumours

Post  System Commander on Fri Dec 03, 2010 1:35 pm

There are sure alot of Grey Knight rumours floating around now... the biggest and most recent batch coming out on Blood Of Kittens.

Some of the more unique rumours include:

Vehicles all having psykers as drivers, meaning each vehicle can cast psychic powers. One of these psychic powers allows the vehicle to improve the armour of one facing by 2.

Psycannons to become Str 7 AP4 guns, firing 2 shots if you move and 4 if your statioary. On top of that, Purgation squads (which in thie edition could put 4 Psycannons in a squad) can be taken asa a troops choice dependent on your leader. Seaveral HQ choices act like this, including one that makes Iquisitor henchmen troops, and of course one that makes Terminators troops.

Apparently, there's a new unit which is "like" a penitent engine, but piloted by a grey knight.

And of course, the psychic powers are getting a major overhaul.

THose were some of the more exciting ones that caught my eye. There are a ton of them though, so check em out if your interested.

Ya....as much as I dont need another 40k army, they are sounding more and more like my kind of army.

I have heard that they are supposed to be the extreme of the elite army....which means to me that you will be running a very low model count....which means less to paint. Very Happy


Now I just need to hope that they come out with some kick ass plastic kits... Laughing

Some of the other rumors are that they Grey Knights are going down to str 5 but getting furious charge.
I also heard that melta guns and plasma guns are going to be availible to the models in power armor.
Plus transports! Rhino's, Razorbacks, and drop pods oh my!
And the big one is that a basic trooper in pa is going to be less then 25 points each!

The rumours are pretty awesome.. and ar ebeing confirmed by a few different sources so hard to beleive most of what we've heard will go into effect. The 2 wound, 2+/3+ armour with a re-roll if you fail terminators with Feel no Pain still seem pretty out there though...

Bell of lost Souls just posted theproposed rumours for the Vidicare.. wowza. Unlimited special ammo.. with the exitus rifle rumours to be Ap1 and rending. Plus, BS 8. Special ammo doesnt look to be changing that much.. The shield breaker is rumoured though to render invulnerable saves useles for the rest of the game... although Im not sure if it completely ignores invulnerable saves to begin with, or if you only lose your invulerable save if you fail it from the shot. After all, all shots are going to penetrate armour.. pretty cool though.

Is that the only assassin to be changed or are all four getting redone?

Re Grey nights

Post  Commander James of the Ul on Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:27 pm

Ya just did three quick mach battle with 5 Grey Knight terminators with 2/3 Armour saves with the re-roll and feel no pain. Against 5 SM terms with lightning claws and a Land raider and another 5 basic SM terms with an Assault Cannon, this group also accompanied by a Land Raider(Crusader).
First two scenarios battles the Grey nights only lose one. And the last and third scenarios the Grey nights lose 4 BUT STILL WIN. And yes I only moved the Land Raiders only 6 that way a Crusader could fire every thing.
Now this either shows that I suck at tosing dices or that a Grey Night terminator with 2/3 amour saves with a re roll and feel no pain are just f_cking stupid hard to kill....
That being said I think roomers are roomers. But I can't wait to see some new models coming out. Hopefully more plastic ones.
