Wow, just sheerly dominated a grey knights paladin army with my T-sons and typhus/ ahriman.
Army list in essence:
Typhus - 3 oblits
Ahriman - 4 TS' and aspiring (Bolt of change)
2x 4 TS' + Aspiring (Bolt of change)
Defiler - twin linked las cannon + extra close combat arm
Vindicator + pittle flamer
VS: Dreigo + 5 paladins - twin nemisis blades + staff + banner
5 paladins + apothacary + librarian - twin nemisis blades + staff + banner
Turn 1: i managed to start. Typhus and co, advance fire lascannons for a few casualties. TS' advance. kill one Ahriman kills one. Defiler fails to hit, vindicator wounds dreigo.
Him: he advances all squads, typhus' oblit squad suffers wound through 'concentrated' fire from dreadknights and paladin squad. Lose 2 TS' from other paladin squad.
Turn 2: Typhus and co advances again to meet dreadknights. Typhus splits from squad. Oblits rapid fire plasmaguns at dreadknight A causing 3 wounds typhus templates dread B, failing. Vindicator wounds dreigo. Ahriman and defiler kill a Paladin each. Typhus assaults. Taking no wounds and eliminated dreadknight via force weapon. Oblits assault taking casualty but finish off dread A.
Him: Paladins in close range. open fire. causing two more TS deaths and another oblit death. though not quite in assault range.
Turn 3: All forces excluding vindicator advance. Typhus rejoins oblit, and lascannon causes casualty. as does defiler lascannon and ahriman kills librarian w/ bolt. Typhus templated causing a wound to paladin. Vindicator eliminates all but one paladin from dreigos squad. Defiler assaults Squad A and Typhus assaults dreigo. Typhus gets 10 attacks but dreigo goes first. two hits. and one fail to wound. typhus makes 5+ invul. typhus hits 6 and wounds 4. dealing 2 unsaved wounds killing dreigo. Paladin kills oblit. Defiler kills all but staff wielder.
Nice one typhus!!!
(i understand typhus got luckyish with dreigo with him having those anti psycher rules. But 1/3 save isn't bad. So not thaaat lucky. The 'mass' of strength 8+ and ap2- shots i employed i think won this for me. See, they're not indestructible!!!)
It helps that his list was uh, terrible. An apothecary? Nearly useless on Paladins. Not to mention it looks as if it was barely 1500 points, which Draigowing isn't exactly efficient at. Oh, and given the listed upgrades, you have about 200 points more than he did. (You're actually sitting on ~1600, while he's at 1420 )

His list was poor, and it doesn't sound like he had a firm grasp on tactics.
What point level was that? And did he have psycannons in that sqauad?
Yes i have to agree, Im glad you had a good time but from the way you wrote your battle report it doesn't sound like you would be a fun person to play with.
The GK list doesn't seem that great and looks more like someone playing with his new toys.
GK are not undestructable, just very strong. When built to take on one type of enemy they can table with ease AKA against Orks and Deamons but thats only if the GK player only want to win and not have a fun game.
Im not gonna check points but i does seem like you fielded more points than him, as already said. (did he put a lot into dreadknight upgrades?
Tau: 6K - W17-D3-L4, Orks: 4K - W9-D0-L2, SM: 7K - W7-D3-L4,CSM: 4K W5-D1-L1, Nids: 3.2K W3-D0-L2
Apoc games (mixture of armies used): W5-D0-L1
a quick apology. please excuse ahriman from that list. i just ran through the points myself and realised the difference is pretty much 'him' i usually run him if i run sons but i probably didn't.
And yeah, but if mr supreme grandmaster managed to hit combat it would have been baaaad. I don't necissarily play to win. I just cater what i run to what i'm playing against. if i ran plauge marines and my chaos bikers instead of my oblits those GK's would have hit CC and annihalated me.
And yes, he was running psycannons
