2000 Tourney List - Pure Grey Knight Fury! (used to be 1850)

Post by Aeddon on Wed Mar 24, 2010 7:09 am

There's gonna be a tourney in the local area in a couple months and I got to thinking that this might be my one and only time to play with our 3rd ed codex so here's my attempt at a tourney list.
Now I don't have the list that I wrote in front of me now but here is what I've got so far.

HQ
Grand Master
Nemesis Force Weapon/Psycannon
Psychic Hood
-retinue 3 Terminators
-1 Thunderhammer/Storm Shield
-1 Nemesis Force Weapon/Incinerator
-1 Nemesis Force Weapon/Storm Bolter

Brother-Captain Stern
-retinue 3 Terminators
-1 Thunderhammer/Storm Shield
-1 Nemesis Force Weapon/Incinerator
-1 Nemesis Force Weapon/Storm Bolter

TROOPS
Justicar
Targeter
-6 Grey Knights
-2 Psycannon
-4 Nemesis Force Weapon/Storm Bolter

Justicar
Targeter
-6 Grey Knights
-1 Incinerator
-5 Nemesis Force Weapon/Storm Bolter

Justicar
Targeter
-6 Grey Knights
-1 Incinerator
-5 Nemesis Force Weapon/Storm Bolter

HEAVY SUPPORT
Land Raider
Smoke Launchers

Land Raider Crusader
Smoke Launchers

TACTICS
The Psycannon squad sits in the rear (on an objective if there is one) and takes pop-shots at the enemy. The two other squads ride in the Land Raiders and snatch other objectives when they are able while the GK in TDA teleport in and cause as much carnage as possible.

Looks good though I'd prefer the GKT's to ride the Raiders. But that's just me. I highly recommend some extra armor for the LR. Nothing more irritating than not being able to make your rush because of a lousy Stunned result.

Personally for the unit that will 'camp' in the rear, i would drop two PAGK and add two psycannons for a total of 4 psycannons and the justicar. i also would turn the LR crusader into a standard pattern, the LR's are your only anti-tank

I'm not too keen on using Purgation squads, the point hike is a bit much. I'm also not at a fiscal place where I could get a second GHLR, I like the LRC anyway, fits well with the way I play it (hang back until the end and rush forward guns blazing to take objectives/kill stuff).

On top of that it turns out that it will be a 2000 point tourney, not 1850 so my list needs to be reworked anyway. New post soon!

You could compromise and take 3 psycannons in the unit but keep it a troop choice.

Justicar
Articifer armour
psycannon
5 PAGK
2 psycannons

you miss out on one guy, but you can camp on your home objective and hold it...

Can't do it, page 16

there's a loop between the PA rule and the possibility of the justicar to buy artificer armour which is OR NOT an PA ... but i think it's too much for me

It's super cheesy rules lawyering. Some claim that you can buy things at different times, so you can buy artificer armor then your not in Power armor, THEN you can buy the psycannon.

Most people believe everything is bought at once so you cant do it, and they believe it would be an extreme twisting of the rules to even try it.

As much as I hate loopholing, swapping for a psycannon doesn't rankle me as much. At least it's keeping it within the 'blessed weaponry' GK's use and isn't a blatant abuse of the 'spirit' of the rule.

Pretty much same as before. Comes to 1999 points. I was thinking about splitting up the psycannons and adding an extra one so there is one in each squad but thought I might get better use of the in the mini-purg squad. Thoughts?

Can't the Grandmaster have an Incinerator or Combi-melta? These weapons suit his style which is up close and personnel.
Wouldn't you rather have your GK in the Land Raider and a fully loaded GKT w/ Grandmaster in the LRC?
Just a few pointers.

I like taking advantage of the GM's BS5 so I gave him the psycannon (plus it's how he's modelled). My intent it to have the majority of my army be able to get in the enemies face with the TDA Grey Knights doing most of the dirty work so that's why I've got the PAGK's in the Land Raiders.

I'm not trying to argue and I do appreciate the comments. Thanks.

2K list looks good though I personally think the GM and ret have a wee bit too much bling. If you drop the master-craft, Unguents and one Holocaust it will almost give you enough points for two more GK's. Remember that kraks are S6, the same as a Justicar. Kraks get only one attempt compared to a Justicar's 3 with his NFW. Targeters for your other squads would be a better bet.

And remember according to 5th ed rules, no matter which side you assault on a vehicle its counted against rear armor value. So a standard grey knights strength 6 has a fair chance against most vehicles.
