I have just had my birthday and have a little bit of cash and want to expand my grey knight force. I have 3 units of grey knights a brother captain and a unit of terminators and was thinking of adding some tanks to the army.
Now i have enough cash for 2 land raiders but i am not sure what once to get. do i get 2 crusaders or 2 normal land raiders or one of each. Or should I go for something else like a dread or another unit of grey knight.
thanks in advance,
The best thing you can do is do a search using the search function of this forum. There is TONS of information already on this.
Look up the way of the water warrior on google as well.
Again, tons of stuff, just do some searching!
1st : LRs work better by 2
If you intend on playing pure GK go LR, otherwise maybe one of each.
Maybe you should ship order from FW (pound are cheap at the moment!)... something like
1 of those : http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog/gklrr1store1.jpg ,
& 1 : http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog/promstore.jpg .
Both are regular LR box + upgrade to transform them in GKLR Redeemer or Inq LR Prometheus!
Why would you put Incinerators and psycannons on a Land Raider?...
Go for 2 normal pattern Land Raiders; that way both of the £50+ models you're buying will be legal to field in any game. The way I see it there's no compelling reason to have a Crusader in a pure GK list (which sucks because Crusaders are luvverly models); the LR is an assault vehicle too, and though it lacks the frag launchers it makes up for them with twin-linked lascannons that provide all the anti-armour you're ever likely to need. It can't hold more than 5 Termies, but it can take a full GK squad with a teleport homer-bearing Justicar if you're one of those people who just has to have big massive Terminator squads ^_^
After reading the WOTWW I found that using LRs is a definite plus for us GK players. So going with a Dreadnaught right now might not be the best buy if you are wanting to do decent (Atleast in my experiences)
To me the only real advantage that cant be covered up with something else is the amount of GKT u can carry.
The weapons are better and the armor is the same. Plus its a few points cheaper so you can add smoke and EA if you want
thanks for the comments
looks like the land raider seems better for a gk only army so it looks like i know what i want.
The Heavy Flamer of the redeemer is AP3, and do as much damage, if not more than the huricane bolter. As for us DH player our AC is Heavy3, range 24, NO rending, Why trade it for the same weapon with a longer range?
But its not why i've mention them : You get doors, iconography, sponsons with servoskulls..., plus they came with a normal LR! you could build your LR, in a way to swap the weapon!
At the moment if you live in Euro-zone, the pound is so low that 1L=1E! and as the price of a regular LR is 50E, your just gaining money! Moreover, it's woth noting that FW sell and send regular LR or LRC/LRR box for 35L (wheras in any shop in france, germany, whatever..., it's 50E!!! so its 1/3 reduction for anywhere in Eurozone : so Mail order, don't buy in shop!)
The resin door kits are sweet though; my LR's got a set and they look fantastic, a million times better than the hoary old nonsense the regular Smurfs get. The Dread is pretty sweet too, although the CCW it came with looks a bit Witch Hunter-esque.
So yeah. The Reedemer would be a nice model to own, you'd just have to be prepared to put it aside when your opponent moans about FW models.
So... Build them so they look cool... and are thematic... and if you are playing with someone or where you can't USE them.. then either swap (thank you MAGNETS) or play with the 'Counts As' rule!
I've not met many people that wouldn't let you play with a not STRICTLY WYSIWYG when the difference are there for asthetics and THEME.
Maybe that's just what I play with or how my group plays.
As stated earlier, buy something you can use. The Grey knight redeemer i don't believe has rules yet and you'd have to buy an IA book for the Prometheus anyway, huge $ sink.
Also id get confirmation first on the LR P and GKLR R coming with the WEAPONS SPRUE of las cannons and heavy bolters. A steal at that price if they do but i don't see it personally.
On tactics, have a GKLR and if you have an =][=, give one to him, opens up two heavy slots then for those dreds if you want em.
Also GM Tchezzarus no stats, ranges or ap,s in posts please as mods politely ask you not too, just as scary as a fulside barrage of verbal obscenity if you ask me....
