I am going to start a grey knight army and was looking through a friends Dh codex deiding what i was going to buy and came to a dillema (Sp?) I couldnt decide whether to go with 10 terminators with a chimera and 15 grey knights or 3 squads of terminators and 2 grey knights (No chimera) I was also considering getting dreadnoughts... any ideas?
Edit: Id also like to point out that my army will be hosuing 2 squads of battle sisters aswell (Or i may drop one of those and buy more terminators)
While the GKT are possibly the coolest unit in the game, they are very expensive to be having any more than 1 medium sized squad every 1500 points. The best bet would probably be to get the codex first, then work out a 500 or 1000 pt army list. Figure out what works best, both in tactics, units, and wargear, then fill out the list to 1500, then 2000, and so on. Spending $400-$500 all at once will make your head spin trying to model and paint every one of them and you could end up buying a very expensive unit that your not even going to use.
1500 years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the Universe
500 years ago everybody knew the world was flat
5 minutes ago you knew humans were alone on the planet
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow
First off, GKTs can't have transports other than Land Raidres (both types) taken as heavy support.
Second GKTs are cool, but not effective when they outnumber you 6 to 1. IMO
Buy the codex, make some lists for rating, then from there start buying models.
you will never, i repeat never have trouble with infantry. you will need anti armour, and for that, i recommend attached marines, or 1-2 squads of STs with meltaguns, and as alays, a land raider cant hurt. forget about relying on orbital strike, it never hits anything, it is just nice for the 70 point lance strike.
Falamin he WANTS Grey Knights...you can't use SMs and Grey Knights in the same army unless the SM is the parent list, but then how could he use the SOBs?
5th E Sand(Grey) Knights: 11-3 (retired) 5th E Eldar: 37-4 (retired) 5th E Wolves 5-0
Hmm... i may go Sm as a main army then... am i allowed to make a Raven Guard with inducted Grey Knights? Or should i go Black Templars so i can take an Emporers Champion?
You can attach SoBs and DH in the same army. And yes, i did mean take the SM as the parent list, not the other wway around. Grey knights can be used as fast attack as well, dont forget.
Good... then i will go Black Templars as the mother army list (Just cause i want to convert my personalised Emporers Champion) Then take 1 squad of Gk Terminators and possibly some Battle Sisters... I know im noly allowed 2 troop, 1 Hq, 1 elite and 1 fast attack of inducted... but do each allied army get that E.g cna i take 2 squads of battle sisters and 2 squads of grey knights?
You should be able to, i dont see why not.
Yes, each different ALLIED (not inducted, that means something totally different) contingent gets the 2 Troops, 1 HQ, etc limit. But they all come from the same Force Organization Chart, which the base army also shares. So while you MAY ally in 2 DH and 2 WH Troops choices, you'd only be allowed to also have 2 BT Troops choices as well, as you're only ever allowed 6 Troops choices in a single FOC. Same goes for the other categories - 2 HQ choices max on a single FOC, so you cannot have a BT HQ, a DH HQ, and a WH HQ.Originally Posted by R1p70r
Also remember that your mandatory choices (ie, 2 Troops and 1 HQ) must come from the base army (BT), not the allied contingents.
