    I've hear id both ways, that Grey Knights can't take any transports, and that they can. I think they can, the codex makes it look this way.

    That's what I thought, the codex makes it look that way, but some people insist that they can't.

    Grey Knights do not have a box next to them saying that thye can take transports, so no, they cannot have an attached transport. If you look at the Inquisitor entry or the Stormtrooper entry you will see what I mean by the transport box.

    Now, having said that, GK can obtain transport vehicles. For Heavy support you can purchase a Land Raider or Crusader, both of which can transport squads. That is the only way that GK can have a vehicle transport.

    Aye, Dvang is right. The only thing that matters is that the squad entry should have a line like 'may be mounted in a rhino/chimera for xx points'. GK don't have this so can't take a transport, though they may be transported by an independant vehicle with transport capacity (like the LR).

    Yah, I searched high and low for this answer when the codex first came out.. it doesn&#39;t make sense that they would list a Rhino with Space Marine Crew as a Transport and then the Grey Knights can&#39;t have a transport... but, apparently they are supposed to be a Deep Striking Army and don&#39;t need transports and thus only the Stormtroopers and/or Inquisitor Lord can have transports purchased as an upgrade for the squad.

    ya made me so sad.... i still think they should be able to take them as fast attack choices for GK squads.

    Higgo: no.. Read the whole thread before posting =) . You cant have transport for the GK (power armour and TD armour). You can, however, purchase a LR, and the LR can transport thingies, and thus the GK can be picked up and driven around.

    So just the heavy support veichles, no transport veichles.
