    [1500] Another Pure GK

    To add just another pure Grey Knights list to this forum, I decided to wre-write my old list and see what the lovely people on LO think.

    HQ
    • Brother Captain [71]
      -Nemisis Force Weapon
      -Storm Bolter
      -Hammerhand

    I usually use a Grand Master in +1500 lists, but I was trying to squeez as many PA GK out of 1500 as I could. Just to clear up the Hammerhand, it is not meant to be used as the normal means of attack, it will instead be used if ever there comes a time that I run into an enemy Dreadnought. With a NFW, I have a below average chance of taking anything out with and armour value (AV) higher than 10, whereas with Hammerhand, I'm good at taking out anything but 14 AV.

    Troops
    • 6 Grey Knights [186]
      -Nemisis Force Weapons
      -Storm Bolters
      • Justicar
        -Nemisis Force Weapon
        -Storm Bolter
        -Frag Grenades
        -Teleport Homer
    • 6 Grey Knights [185]
      -Nemisis Force Weapons
      -Storm Bolters
      • Justicar
        -Nemisis Force Weapon
        -Storm Bolter
        -Teleport Homer

    Fast Attack
    • 10 Grey Knights [276]
      -Nemisis Force Weapons
      -Storm Bolters
      • Justicar
        -Nemisis Force Weapon
        -Storm Bolter
        -Frag Grenades
    • 10 Grey Knights [276]
      -Nemisis Force Weapons
      -Storm Bolters
      • Justicar
        -Nemisis Force Weapon
        -Storm Bolter
        -Frag Grenades
    • 10 Grey Knights [276]
      -Nemisis Force Weapons
      -Storm Bolters
      • Justicar
        -Nemisis Force Weapon
        -Storm Bolter
        -Frag Grenades

    Heavy Support
    • Grey Knight Dreadnought [115]
      -Assault Cannon
      -Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon
      -Extra Armour
    • Grey Knight Dreadnought [115]
      -Assault Cannon
      -Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon
      -Extra Armour

    Total Points: 1500
    Total Models: 43 + 2 Dreadnoughts

    In this list I have moved away from the Terminator heavy lists of my past. How do you think this list will preform on the battlefield?

    I like the list, I would change a couple of small things, eh?

    I like the Hammerhand

    I would drop one squad of FAGKs and bulk up your PAGK squads to 10 each. With the left over take a GM+Psycannon and walk him with one of those troops.

    You could also give Teleport Homers to your two PAGK Justicars. I have found them to be usefull if you want to DS your FAGK squads.

    Add Smoke to your Dreads, important IMO.:yes:

    Cheers, DH

    With 70 pts left I'm toying with several options:

    a) Trick out the Brother Captain for CC death

    b) Trick out the Brother Captain for ranged Death (ie Psycannon)

    c) Give all justicars melta-bombs and other such semi-important gear.

    d) Buy a Land Raider Crusaider as I just picked one up :ninja:

    Your list have the problem of no anti tank at all, which is in general what grey knight lack, since you have 70 point left, upgrade them with twin lascannon

    If you are going 40 grey knight, why deep strike anyway, just deploy them as normal, and on first turn you can move 6' and fire 80shots of stormbolters to enemy + brother captain's 2 shot, a waste not to do it

    Some good points...

    I field the PA GK like that so I can deply 2 squads last (ie the FA ones). They most likely will not deepstrike.

    Also, the dreads are my anti-tank, with AssCannons I can shoot down anything. With a 4' wide table and a 12" deployment zone and a 6" movement, I'd need some serious bad luck to not be in range first turn.

    If you drop one grey knight from each squad you could pick up a third dread with the lascannon and missle launcher for extreme armor
    I'm not here for the respect, just here to spread the clarity of a very complicated game
