My friend keeps telling me how uber deamonhunters are because their basic troops have str. 6 because of thier weapons, and 5 weapon skill, is this true? if so...holy crap
Your friend is telling you the truth. All Grey Knights have a higher Weapon Skill than the average Space Marine, and gain +2 Strength from their Nemesis Force Weapons.
The true strength of the Grey Knights is the ability to maintain a consistent volume of fire, while constantly on the move, however.
As a rule of thumb, try to avoid posting actual statistics like Weapon and Strength.
2H - LEGIO HYDRA
And it is not really 'holy crap' as their initiative is that of a normal space marine... Certainly not an initiative of hardened hand to hand specialists.
They may have more impressive stats, however they are also a lot more expensive than the regular marines. Thus, in most cases, playing Daemonhunters will mean that you will usually be outnumbered and sometimes by quite a lot. Moreover, the grey knights die just as easily as regular marines. Therein lies the challenge...less troops who are just as fragile as regular smurfs. I'm telling you, it's a challenge to play DH, but when you get your win, it's all the more rewarding.
