Those who have betrayed the emperors kindness with treachery and selfishness should not be suffered to live. What is the most points effective way in the grey knights arsenal to purge a hoard of Toughness 3 , Armor 4+ or weaker enemies?
I would probably aim for just lots of storm bolters with psybolts. Nothing like wounding on a 2 with all your shots. Lots of Strike squads or Interceptors. Maybe throw in some Incinerators if you think youll be getting close enough, or just Psycannons of course.
You could even mass warrior henchmen squads armed with storm bolters.
Though the best way is probably Purifiers. Not only do they have excellent shooting, but their cleaning flame ability and close combat excellence is ideal for killing all hordes. The Purifiers were pretty much designed to annihilate hordes.
Main armies: Iyanden-styled Eldar, Grim Legion Chaos Marines, and Grey Knights

Yes it has to be purifiers really. 10 in a razorback with 4 incinerators (a free upgrade for them) and a hammer. They then combat squad giving you two cleansing flame attacks after the incinerator toasting and storm bolt fire.

Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
That sentence is awkward, sir.
TBH, I don't see any GK build having a problem with T3...anything.
Is it a waste of a post to say i agree with everything stated so far.
The Psybolt ammo will really be the nail in the coffin. For that kind of battle you want as many GK as you can. Rather leave off the other bells and whistles.
What army are we talking though? as there may be other strategies to consider.
Will you be facing a horde streaming at you?
or someone who will be hiding in cover and have one or two big boys out to hurt you from a distince
Are we talking IG or what?
What point size (roughly) ? 500 pts or 5000 ?
we need more info. (although the advice given is sound in almost every case)
