Grey Knight Core list

Post  dusktiger on Fri Jul 15, 2011 10:35 pm

here's what i'm using as the core of my new Grey Knights army. im thinking of adding another identical termy squad, either with or without the banner, and 2 more strike squads, same loadout, and possibly a purifier or purgation squad. mainly my choices are based off the fact i want to make a cool army that was fun to model AND paint, so im also taking my time with these guys. i'm also trying to lean away from tank-heavy deployments as that's already how my marines have become; why make a different army the same way when u can have variety. so here's my list:

Total Roster Cost: 755

HQ:
Librarian (245 pts) + Nemesis Warding Stave + Might of Titan + Warp Rift + Upgrade to Mastery Level 3




Troops:
Grey Knight Terminator Squad (255 pts)
1 Terminator Justicar + Nemesis Daemonhammer
1 Terminator + Psycannon + Nemesis Force Halberd
1 Terminator + Brotherhood Banner
1 Terminator + Nemesis Falchions
1 Terminator + Nemesis Force Halberd

Grey Knight Strike Squad (125 pts)
1 Justicar
1 Grey Knight
1 Grey Knight + Psycannon
1 Grey Knight + Nemesis Daemonhammer
1 Grey Knight + Nemesis Force Halberd




Heavy Support:
Dreadnought (130 pts) + Psybolt Ammunition + Twin-Linked Autocannon

Pretty solid core, I might use a cheaper HQ in a 750 game myself. For the terms, a brotherhood banner isn't so great in a min. squad, as you give up the bearer's forceweapon. Sort of diminishing returns for only 5 men. In a bigger squad, much more effective. In the strike squad, you want to give the justicar a MC hammer. (Now stop. Hammertime.)
for 15 extra pts he blows a tactical powerfist sarge out of the water, and looks totally bitchin. The dread is awesome, and makes transports cry. Very Happy

I don't see the transport for the strike squad. Are you deploying them on foot? If you add more strike squads will they all be on foot?

nope, no transports yet; once i build up my core ill sit down and decide which vehicles, if any, to take. and i agree on making a cheaper HQ. just trying to figure out what model to use to make an inquisitor to save points. might take a vindicare eventually as well, they look neat

Totally agree with Spamus Eatus (know stop hammer time) lol. and make in MC for 5 points is a wicked option. Just think about it. Hammer hand, with a daemon hammer and the bitch is Master crafted. Tanks, Monstrous Creatures and Rosanne will flee before such a sight... lol

lol i'll keep that in mind with the next box i buy. the first one i modeled with the sword in the demon head cause its badass. box 2 will be the hammer. i also went and magged the banner hand so i can swap from the banner to a sword depending on how i feel like fielding the squads.
