Ok so as my Army nears completeion I already have my first Battle with it comming up Vs. a CC Ork army and in the distant future.... like 2 months or so(waiting for people to get their armies together) my army will be facing the Tau and a Tyranid Hive called the something or other.
Keep in mind that all models I mention are all the models I have other then 2 GKT 1w/a Psycannon and a Inquisitor.
175 X 2
So the basic plan is have the troops and the Dreadnought start on the ground and deepstrike the HQ and the GK fast attack. Also I decided to go with the Psycannon bolts with the dread just to make sure No boby gets a armor save.... well fewer bad guys anyhow. They may and may not have vehicals, but as of now no one has any big tanks that they shared with the others of us.
your opinions or anything I can do to tweek this out a bit would be great.
The difficulty with Grey Knight lists is that they tend to have little to no anti-tank ability, and this is one such list. The only AT weapons you have are the Assault Cannon (which, while effective, is often just too short-ranged) and a Justicar with Meltabombs (and vehicles are often hard to catch on foot, especially in 4th ed where they can move and fire more weapons). There aren't as many vehicles in 1000 points as in bigger games, so that works to your advantage, but I'd try out the Lascannon/missile launcher Dreadnought, for more ranged ability.
Also, since your army is still developing, I would suggest a squad of Inquisitorial Storm Troopers in a transport vehicle for your next investment. They can take a wider range of special weapons with more distinct functions: flamers for swarm clearing (especially against Orks and Tyranids), meltas for tank-hunting, and plasma guns for dealing with 2+ saves (Tau broadsides, Ork Mega Armour, Terminators, Carnifexes, Hive Tyrants....)

"Negative! The soda bottle is the Carnifex!"
"Dang proxy models!"

Well a big problem there is that you only have one troop choice. You might want to change that fast attack to another troop choice.
Or as Solexus said, go with some ISTS.
I think he has 2 troop choices, it says 175 X 2, although I could be wrong....Originally Posted by IbramGaunt

I muyself am a little bit worried about having two incinerators in the FAGK. If you by some conspiracy of fate should land off target, that could be a big waste, I think i would gamble with one, especially since you are only going to get a few models under the template unless you are right next to them, the storm bolter may suffice adn then you will tear them up in CC.
yup as far as troops i meant 175 x 2 as in 2 sets.
as for the 2 incinerators .. thats cuz those are the models I have to work with. i figured that if i can deepstrike right there i could make the most of them that way rather then have my normal troops march up the field with them.
I would drop the Incineraters once you have more models. I like my FAGK with one Psycannon or no special weapons at all. Use the points for a TLLC Dread and ML, and keep it back and use just for Tanks and MCs. For sure drop the Psycannon bolts, those are a complete waste vs Orks.
Other than that, not a bad list.:yes:

I dont think Psycannons are worth it on PAGK, maybe FAGK . .
I dont like Psycannons ,because you get a free power weapon with the Justicar which has one more attack than a Grey Knight Terminator Thats why you shouldnt just sitback and shoot, and if you get close it'll take an extra turn for the psycannon to catch up with the bolter shots. For the cost of 2 Grey Knights you can have a Psycannon GK:
2 GK-2 wounds
2 GK-4 NFW attacks
1PGK-2 SMish attacks
1PGK-Ablitity to punch through carapace armor/destroy most demons with ease . .expensive
Mostly, I agree.
Though I've found that, if you can afford it, psyconnons on Terminators kick butt. Especially 'cause you don't sacrifice any abilities or weapons when you do so. Always being able to shoot at the full 36" range doesn't hurt, either.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
