    (1500) Competetive edge list

    A GK army which will either get a golden or blackish green paintjob, along with it;s own fluff, but the army is geared to be competitive. Any ideas for model names for heroes, dreads, or lone models and fluff ideas would be appreciated as well as some realistic critisism. This army will be lightning fast. I will have a power unit of termies DS-ing into the fray. From there i will jsut get minimum in core with grey knights, then fill Fast Attack with DS-ing units so the fight starts immediately. With I4 ans S6 as long as no psychic powers are use, i'm sure that they will do well in CC, even against Chaos.

    HQ-
    Grand Master - 364 Points
    4 Grey Knight Terminator Retinue
    Icon of the Just
    Teleport Homer
    Bionics

    Core
    1 Justicar, 4 Grey Knights - 150 Points

    1 Justicar, 4 Grey Knights - 150 Points

    Fast Attack

    1 Justicar, 9 Grey Knights - 275 Points

    1 Justicar, 9 Grey Knights - 275 Points

    1 Justicar, 9 Grey Knights - 275 Points

    Total - 1499 Points

    This is my first GK army, so i would like some advice. Maybe it's just me, but nothing says CC monster more than 4 DS-ing units, all with S6, one ignoring armor saves, and 3 of which don't have to do scatter if they're lucky.

    You know what would really be scary? Yeah. I know that you know that i know that you know that i know what i'm thinking:
    War Titans for 40k. Muahahahaha! They'd be like 50,000 points.

    Just a question could you deep strike your entire army. Meaning you dont set up you let the other guy set up and then just deep strike.

    Hey doi i get to vote on a color scheme? I vote for black basecoat with DA green and a green ink job.

    I think the 'marble' look for power armor and termie armour would be cool!



    Now for fluff,

    GM names -
    Octavius
    Ceasar

    Dread names -
    Veneratio

    Your army,
    HQ-
    Grand Master - 364 Points
    4 Grey Knight Terminator Retinue
    Icon of the Just
    Teleport Homer
    Bionics

    Core
    1 Justicar, 4 Grey Knights - 150 Points

    Points,
    1) Terminator squads will get shot to pieces unless they are at least seven man. Trust me, you opponent will throw all their heavy weapons and howling banshees at them. They WILL DIE in squads of six or less. 5+ invulnerable is not dependable at all.

    I would take out 1 FAGK squad and make you squad at least seven man. Then give them as many psycannons as you can (2). I would take out holocaust, because unless you get really crappy rolls, your 7 man grey knight terminator squad will own face and won't need the extra str5 hits. (Against most armies, againts orks, i would rather take holocaust, but if so give it to both your terminator squad and hero.)

    2) You need some anti tank. You will die to most vehicles. Heck, any vehicle that is at least 13 armor you can't even touch. And don't get me started on falcons, these things can get starcannons and dance around your termies shooting the **** out of them. All you'll get is 5+ invulnerable saves and die!

    A list of some things that will kill your army, Baal predator, LST's, Falcons, Vyper, that's all i get get off the top of my head. But hey, almost every eldar army runs at least 1 falcon or 3 vypers. And most of them run starcannons which will kill you dead.

    In order to fight this, you need Dreadnaughts and land raiders. I suggest you run at least 2 Dreadnaughts with TLLC and ML's.


    I gotta go right now, but i'll be back to tell you the rest of my feelings.


    Remember you can't kill tanks so get those dreadnaughts into action.

    Okay. I've decided on a volor. I'll be using a dark angels green base color, with mithril silver for metal. The hafts of the NFWS will be chaos black. Their eyepieces will be red gore., and to give them a battle-worn look, i will put on after i've painted the armor a mix of brown and green ink. Good ideas?

    I wouldn't put a teleport homer on a unit that's going to deep-strike. For all you know, this unit's going to turn up on turn 6, and the teleport homer will be useless.

    This is okay, but don't expect them to live long if they get in range of enemy guns.

    This is good too. Incinerator's usually don't work for me, I say stick with the stormbolter, especially becuase of the range of the autocannon. Use the points from the incinerator, and add a teleport homer to a unit of footslogging Gk's, and swap the other teleport homer from the HQ to the other unit of footsloggers. Or perhaps you could make the core units I.S.T's in rhinos/chimera's, so you can get up the other end quickly, and have the gk's drop in there. This would be better for a fast list.

    Sounds like a good idea to me.
