i have space marines (blood angels to be specific and i was thinking of getting grey kniight terminators to use for heavy killers.
are they any god the terminatos or do you recommend getting something else?
P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
Are they any good? That's a huge question. They're good at killing heavy infantry. Their excellent at that, actually. They're excellent at killing Daemons. Light infantry swarms them, and vehicles with high AV's are basically safe from them as well.
I don't think they belong in a BA army. Your entire army focuses on getting into the fight already, why spend inordinate amounts of points buying another unit that does the same thing? Granted, all those power weapons are nice, but they aren't that unique.
I also have a thing against people allying for the sheer sake of taking powerful units. How about trying to make a fluffy combination? Or a combination that brings in a strength to counter your army's weakness?
Sorry, just a rant. Yes GK Terminators are good (at some things). But they're similar to the rest of your other army, and might not be the best choice. Also, remember that allied =][= contingents are NOT tourney legal.
If not the GKT models where so good-looking I'd take ordinary CC Terminators with Furiouscharge all day... (if 5 guys charges there is 20 strength 5 Init 5 no armoursave attacks with reroll on all towounds).... 43p each.
and SM can have something called Chaplain or something....
You know, you can use the GK Terminator models, just convert them slightly (Blood Angels Iconography etc.). If you give them Lightening claws, file at them alittle and paint them blood red they'd look like badass Blood Angels terminaotrs.
GW even have a "conversion set", a set of pieces converting a GK Terminator into a Chaos (emperors children? Blue/yellow egyptian looking...) Terminator.
