can somone tell me a good army list to beat grey knights in a 1500 and 2000 point list with chaos?
Typically the same list you'd use to beat Space Marines, other CSM, or other MEQ armies. Grey Knight armies (if you're talking pure GK instead of DH in general) tend to be very light on models, and they really struggle with anti-tank, so you should pack a decent number of vehicles plus some solid anti-tank of your own to knock out the GK player's Dreadnoughts and/or Land Raiders (their main form of solid anti-tank in a pure GK list).
as Lost Nemesis said, any list suggest depend entirely on if you're playing pure grey knights or the daemonhunters in general. if its the DH in general, you're gonna see alot of minimum squads of stormtroopers so your opponent can load up on land raiders.
if its just pure grey knights, template weapons chew through them pretty quickly. the one game I played against a pure GK list, I won by turn 2.
I find plague marines excelent against grey knights. Storm bolter fire just bounces off Toughness 5, feel no pain marines. Your return fire with bolters and plasmaguns will pay dividens. Rhinos can be used to get up the table and prevent GKs from firing at long range and retreating all the while. Grey knights have trouble enough with tanks as it is and suffer against tanks and mech infantry together.
Watch out for the GK terminators as they will cut through plague marines in combat with ease. Make sure you thin them out and send a daemon prince or chaos dread to intercept them.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
Also include a lashprince.
If they are without a landraider or out of the landraider they are footslogging slow
and with al lashprince they wil never get near you.
I find obliterators and vindicators to be veyr usefull against them, all that AP2 goodness does a considerable number on them.
If you can manage to get GK termis in the open, then our own terminators are very well suited for taking them down in rapid-fire range. For instance:
Chaos Terminator Squad- 175
*5x termis with combi-plasma
Spambot kill tally. . .337
As has been said, AP1, 2 and 3 shooting weapons are your best choice.
Try not to go hand-to-hand as GKs are nasty.
