I just wanted to know now with their new codex how well would/will the Grey Knights go in a battle against the Daemons now?
I showed a mate of mine their new codex & he (after a quick read) said that the Daemons would totally annihilate the Grey Knights even with their new codex so i thought i would ask you guys to see you's reckon thanx.
GKSS spam and servo skulls. get your men over the whole board and cast warp quake. Psycannons and storm bolters should do the rest.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
It really depends on the lists. A GK list kitted out against daemons is really tough for the daemons to face. However, this type of list is rather unbalanced as it will "suck" against most any other army that's not daemons. However, if GK's take a more balanced list, one designed to take on all armies and not just daemons, then daemons will have an easier time.
GK's have a lot of inherent advantages against daemons. They are definitely more competitive than the older daemonhunters against daemons. However, in most cases, it won't be an easy-peasey battle. Both armies will need to work for it.
BTW, this is coming from a player of both armies.
Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6
Blood Angels 12-4-2 Daemonhunters 20-8-3
Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
All true points, but lets never forget that Grey Knights have a lot of anti-daemon stuff standard, requiring no point spending to get. Psyke Out Grenades come to mind, as do daemon hammers (which I run in my generic list regardless of who I'm playing), and Daemonbane (not a sure thing, but hey, it's nice). On top of all that, army wide preferred enemy (Daemons).
I don't see how Daemons can "Destroy" Grey Knights. Just like Jy2, I play both. But for all the awesome Close Combat Daemons get, Grey Knights can return in kind. For all the Shooting they can do, Grey Knights can withstand, and for all the tough creatures, Grey Knights can overcome.
It'll come down to generalship like any other time, but your friend is delusional if he thinks daemons will "totally annihilate" they Grey Knights.
