I don't understand why Grey Knights do not have an assault squad (one with jetpacks) because it seems to fit so well. I mean, their squads already come with 2 assault weapons (incinerator and psycannon) so why not just give them another unit entry for fast attack and give them jetpacks for +10pts a model? Yes, I know they can deepstrike, but wouldn't they have at least a few assault squads?
Grey Knights ARE assault squads. And jump packs would be totally unfluffy. GK work on a squad by squad basis of foot soldiers. They rarely work like space marines do in larger battles. Grey Knights stick with what they have now. Besides, they would be completely unstoppable in CC if they had jump packs.
By the way, there are about 10 threads recently addressing this topic. One of which is a hot thread on the first page. This shouldn't be a new topic.

If only my .sig had been seen before this thread was started, disaster might have been averted! :shifty:
EDIT: Not trying to be condescending or anything, its just a fairly common topic with many threads, all of which pose the exact same question and recieve the same answers. Check all those links in the first line of this post for some of them.
grey knights are supreme people who do not need things such as jetpacks, plus can you imagine the price of jet pack GK's? This would be too cheesy and grey knights are elites, we cant have things that are close to termies in jetpacks now can we?
It's also unfluffy.
The gold grey knight man. These are hardy men who like cheese.
Ever thought of how cheese was found?:
`` I say sah, the milk in this barrel smells foul!``
``Oooohhh, give it a go!``
''Quack, damn you!''

Oh.... my god.....
I agree... with.... mustardknight! AND HE SAID SOMETHING I FAILED TO THINK OF :-O! Jump pack GKs would cost ~50 points per model, that's not going to happen.
Are your Grey Knights really gold, mustard? Pics please
I definitely should have checked through the prior threads. My apologies.
