Grey Knight Terminators
Grey Knight Strike Squad
I am wondering which troop choices people will be using and why.
Personally I can't decide between either Terminators and a Strike Squad.
What are your thoughts?
depending on the game, I'll be going either GKSS or henchman.
for lower points games (<1,000) I will most likely be going Coteaz and his Hench squads. that way you can get the compulsary out of the way to take the more fun elite and heavy choices.
for higher points games, the GKSS are a must. they are expensive, but well worth the points.
nothing like inter species cooperation!

I had a test game yesterday and I can say (at least for my style and 40k ability) that Strike Squads and Terminators are excellent troops.
I use purifiers because they are just like GKSS but better yes they are expensive but it's clearly worth it that extra attack and cleansing flame is so useful against everything and the more special weapons the better^^
I will use my metal grey knights as Purifiers since they get halberds for a lot less than GKSS do. I like the GKSS for the deepstrike and the antideepstrike power but I think 10 will protect the army enough.
Purifiers are well worth the extra points for more attacks, a better psy-power, more special weapons, cheaper hammers/halberds and of course fearless. The only disavantage is Crowe who hardly the best HQ as he isn't an IC. Some people regard him as a purifier tax rather than an HQ.
GKSS when compared to termies I would definately go with the GKSS. Twice as many for the points means more wounds, attacks, shooting etc and after taking damage the model count can really suffer for termie armies.

I like terminators, but part of the reason for that is probably so I can point at who I am attacking and ask them if their name is "Sarah Konna'" in my Arnie voice before I kill them. But ya, I run 2 units of terminators and then for objective games, rely on the Grand Master to pitch in 1-3 more scorers. Last game I rolled a 5 for the Grand Master and got a unit of Purifiers, Paladins, and a Dreadknight as scoring so that was good times.

I will be running GKSS for now. The league I will be in starts at 500 points. The first few weeks will be tough for me. At higher points I will play around with terminators.
OT the down side to this league will be 4 Grey Knight players.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
I'm running paladins. Unless your opponent's army is geared to kill them, you can really watch them squirm as virtually everything bounces off of them. Missile spam, and even Psyrifledreadspam just bounces right off of them.
What got me to choose Daemon hunters as my first army back in 4th was basically the idea of an ultra elite soldier in terminator armor wielding a psycannon. With Driago, Paladins, and Dreadknights I can run an entire army of multwound models in terminator equivalent armor, each of which is effectively the caliber of an enemy hero. And I can have 2 relentless psycannons for each 5 guys.
At the end of the day I enjoy my ultra elite army marching forward under torrents of firepower to shrug off all but the most devastating of attacks returning fire with mobile heavy weapons and one hell of a charge.
I am starting off with Strike and Terminator squads, but will quickly be branching out to Purifiers as well. While Crowe seems like a big liability, making Purifiers troops just seems to good to pass up. Though, I guess I could get the same results with a Grand Master HQ.
