What would you people reccomend on a GK force with allied Space Marines. I decided a pure GK is not right for me, since the GKs are so dang expensive, and I never really liked Imperial Guard, so any suggestions on what the add to a GK with allied SM army go ahead and be friendly.
Mm, you can't have Grey Knights allied with Space Maines, the only possible way you can have that combo is to have a Space Marine base army with Grey Knight allies.
In doing that you give up all the heavy choices and are limited in the number of whatelse you can say.
Really, for allies to SMs i'd say add either an elites choice of Terminators or just a teleporting squad of regular GKs.
You could add a GM but its alot of points and you still need to have your SM HQ so your spending alot of points on two models really.
As well there isn't much point to adding troop GKs as they can't be put in anything aside from a LR.
NOOOO!!! VAUGHN, DON'T LEAVE US!!! AROOOOO!!! Meh. Just use =][= stormies. They're great meatshields. Park 20 of them, with 2 plasma guns in each squad in front of your Purgation Squad with psycannons, and now you have 36" doom with 20 models blocking LoS to 5 of them, and shrouding. And you can keep an =][= w/ psycannon and 3 Gun Servitors (at least one with plascannon) with the GK's. BEAUTIFUL tactic, introduced to me inadvertently by Causatum. Also, have one Rhino full of Stormies with two meltaguns, and you have some anti-tank, and rush them up a flank.
How's that? Holy *****, I like that tactic. I'm gonna buy me some Kasrkin and test that out!
I know you said you don't like IG, but look at it this way: take 2 platoons (6 squads) to use as even cheaper shields than IST's (and lascannons/mortars are just tasty). Then you get a Leman Russ, and maybe some Sentinels. Right there, for something like 500pts, you get Heavy, Fast, and meat shield that the GK were sorely lacking. And hell, I'm sure you could even use IST models for your IG, which would mean you need to buy less.
O, man...Cadian pattern Sentinels are teh sweetzors. Heheh.
Hey I might do Imp Guard. I like Leman Russ' alot. I really wanna see if they arent that bad. You see, I have these two friends that have been playing for a long time, and I really trust them . Leman Russ, DAMN that sounds good. I just realised that GK dont need to go in a LR/LRC, they can be fast attackers! Lol. Thank you people!!! :w
WOOO We kept Vaughn!
Ooooh, Yay, so you might just add IG attachments? Thats what I was planning orginally (They turned into Stormies for when I feel the need for them), The thought of having a Russ as backup just makes yea drool doesn't it, so very useful and it helps make up for our lack of anti tank. Not to mention all the heavy weapons the IG attachments can take and the wonderful firebase they create.
I think that Rough Riders would be a neat thing to add from time to time, just to throw off the enemy and distract them.
But Sentinals, yea, Armagedon ones with the lascannons.. so very useful for anti tank hunting.
You could make a evil Non Gk army. And since you have no GK deamons don't get sustained attack. Here is a list for 1750 no gk army list, that would be exremely interesting. DOn't know how it would work but I think it would be very effective.

Ok, WHY are there no Daemonhosts? If you don't take GK, then take 'hosts. Always.
