Since Great weapons on mounted guys got nerfed a bit since last edition, I was wondering, does anyone use knights with Grt. Weaps?
I want to put some in an army but my fluff really strongly means they should be armed with grt Ws not lances. I know that in most cases, a lance would be better, as the aim for knights is to break through on the charge, and a g/w would only be useful in prolonged combat against enemies who are not likely to kill you before you get to attack. Inner circle knights help this a bit, but of course it costs you...
are there any extended tacticas / advice / threads about this?
Well for the most part the only way I would arm my knights with GW is if they are Inner Circle as their strength isn't too shaby. Though thats really the only way IMO. Still not every unit you charge will break on the charge so really the GW can be handy in those prolonged fights also invaulable against stubborn units and such.
Though it is a pain that you don't get your 1+ save in CC but you can't get everything I suppose...
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

never, ever worth it.
Inner circle knights got nerfed as well. They were put in special from core - and we don't have enough specials as it is.
Well, White Wolves of the inner circle are not completely useless, they're a bit like fast moving Greatswords (although not stubborn and way more expensive, but with a better armor save which helps against striking last, at least against the new High Elves it won't matter)
But the special choices slot needed for them is admittedly a bummer.
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
