Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey I'm starting a GK army and I wanted some help/tips on what to get. So far I have a 5 grey knight squad and the codex is ordered and on the way. So what do you guys suggest for a nice 500-1000 point force? thanks in advance:yes:
Well, get another 5 grey knights and a blister of 2 grey knights ( or just get blisters)
-get a dreadnought or 2 ( these are the main anti tank
-Inquisitorial storm troopers, these are cheap troops and they can be nicely equipped ( meltas, plasmas etc..)
-Grey knight hero and some terminators, a box of those will do just fine even at the 1000-1500 point matk!
a balanced army will have a squad of stormies, some termies, a squad of grey knights and some dreadnoughts, that is a good starter army right there
hope I helped
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!''

There are several 500 pt armies listed in the army lists section. Do a quick search and read the comments. That should help. Ultimately. it's going to come down to how much do you want GKs and/or a dreadnought? At 500 pts, your options are limited.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

thanks guys this helps
As far as grey knights go, you are better off buying blisters instead of the boxes. You probably won't find the incinerators to be as useful as a plain GK, so the blisters sort out this problem. basically, it comes down to whether or not you want to field a pure GK force, or to field them with stormtroopers. As for stormtroopers, buy a box of kasrkin, and also 2 blisters of kaskin with plasma/melta. This offers you more possibilities. To get to 1,000 points, i would have a force of 2 dreads, a Grey Knight hero, and the rest of the army filled out with grey knights and perhaps stormtroopers. I would hold off on termies until after 1,000 points, which is where you can start having more variety and character.
