I'm new

Post by chosen on Sun Mar 13, 2011 5:13 am

I'm new and have 2 squads of the old GK with a justicar and intend on getting the new GK. Should I carry on using the the old GK or start afresh and get a completely new set:?:

You could use the old gk as a different unit type in the new codex.

Like purifiers or the teleport squad.

And by the way, welcome to the forum.

I think the old models are fantastic and fit well with the new kits.

Like brother Klomster said use them as a specific type of unit!

Welcome to the forum. I agree, do not get rid of your old metals. IMHO they're still better-looking than the new. Especially the Termies.

Welcome chosen.
All the advice that has been given is sound advice.
The final decision depends on what YOUR preferences are for the models, and perhaps also on what your pocket book is telling you Razz

welcome brother, enjoy your stay. as already mentioned, you should use the old models for the more special units, like purifiers or mix em. the new GK boxes only got 3 pairs of halberds and 3 pairs of falchions..
so if you want some more halberds in there, you got 6 from the old ones Smile

Welcome brother. Plan on starting a clean slate?
If anything, they are Grey knights, metal or plastic they serve the Emperor, they are the Imperium's finest and the enemy doesn't care of what you are made of. If you use the veteran metal GKs, it's like a length of chain that attaches the old and the new codex... a legacy of chain linked together that anchors to the foundations of Titan. With that said, it's up to you.
