Hi,I have a question about the transport options for grey knight squads,grey knight terminator squads and purgation squads.
It states in the codex that the transport options are rhino,chimera and the land raider.But,the squads I mentioned don't have a transport option in their squad options.And so I thought that they can't take transports.OK.
But,in the easiest opponent post,I saw that someone was transporting his purgation squad in a rhino.Is that his mistake,or has someone sent a question to thr Roolzboyz and they replied that it is legal to use transports.I don't know what 's legal anymore...
Grey Knights have absolutely only one option for "transport". A GKLR (or LRC) bought as a HS choice. GK have no options to buy (or use) any unit level Transports.
I'll elaborate on that some:
The Daemonhunters codex lists the following vehicles in the Transport section: Rhino, Chimera, Land Raider. This does not make them available for just any unit to take - the unit in question's entry in the codex needs to explicitly give permission for a transport. IST, for example, may take a Chimera or Rhino, as their entry in the codex says as such.
Grey Knights, Grey Knight Terminators, and Purgation Squads do NOT have ANY transport choices listed for them.
Now, to complicate things, there are two further vehicles in the codex that may be purchased as Heavy Support - ie, they aren't a dedicated transport, but may still carry friendly models. These are the GK Land Raider and the GK Land Raider Crusader (and yes, the GK Land Raider is different from the Land Raider listed in the transport section). These two vehicles MAY carry Grey Knights (of all varieties), but as was said, not as dedicated transports.
And even more complicated: a GK Hero *without* bodyguard may attach himself to a unit that's riding in a transport - ie, a Grand Master may attach to an IST squad in a Chimera.
So the short answer is as dvang said: No GK unit of any variety may get into a vehicle of any kind other than a GK Land Raider or a GK Land Raider Crusader.
LOL. You state they have exactly one option for a transport and list two options. hahaha...Originally Posted by dvang
