I hear you on the old models, when I put in my order I bought the last original GK termies that my local shop had( was actually working on them about an hour ago). I picked up 2 SR for the hell of it, Ill give them a try in small battles and if they don't work out then they will be reserved for Apoc.

Yea, I tried to get a few more boxes from local shops but they disappeared fast!

The SR's are interesting, I've heard from BA players that they can work, but they are a points sink and in the BA codex at least other options are equally good if not better.

From what I have seen in the BA list the SR is Heavy Support but for us it is Fast Attack which I think is a plus. I have seen the wreak havoc against most armies in my local shop so I would like to try them out.

Yea that is a huge boon. I think my biggest problem now is figuring out how to make a 1500 list with cool stuff, PLUS being a visable army to play, rather than just all candy!

I hear that, I think smaller armies are going to the problem not large armies. With the diversity we have now successful list will probably take a little trial and error. I intend to use paladin quite regularly so I'm going to build my army around them and Draigo if I can.

I really want a terminator theme, although I'm not sure how to do it well quite yet!

lol Same here. I tried to shy away from using a special character but a properly tooled up GM cost almost as much as Draigo so why not take him instead. IMO, he at least makes my paladins more resilient vs. shooting until the whole unit can get to grips in CC. Draigo and a 5-man paladin unit makes the core of my 2000 pt GT army Very Happy

Due to cost Draigo and Pallies could really only be core in a 2000 point army. Can't see them being standard in anything less. Unfortunately, I've only ever played 2000 points once, although it was a tournie. Sad

Opposite for me Razz I rarely play below 2000 pts w/ GK's. Although, with all the options in our new codex, we can definitely be competitive at lower points as well.

I personally don't mind the new models (besides the ammo hunk of metal on their arms.) Though I'll agree that the old termies were super awesome. As for the new codex, I'm working on ways to have a 5-6 man paladin squad with Draigo, I've come up with throwing out a squad of termies and two squads of purifiers with a dreadknight or two (I like the heavy psycannon) and maybe a dreadnought. I want to also take advantage of the psycannons, termies or palies with them would also be fearsome ranged unit. I don't really see a use of halberds though unless your fighting like Eldar or other space marines but the force sword on termies seems alright, the hammer would be cool for one per squad, and dual falchions is just awesome in my opinion for like paladins or something. Idk what do you guys think?

I plan to run Draigo and 5-10 paladins in 1500-2500 pt games and draigo and 20+ paladins in apoc just for the hell of it (ton a paladins will be fun in at least 1 game) but after reading the new codex I can't wait to use a Vindacare assassin (with turbo penetrating rounds that wound twice on non vehicle units) in games especially against a tau running friend if mine.

That's pretty cool I must admit. The only thing I have against Purifiers (which I plan to take) is that they die just like regular space marines so upgrading them can be a major disappointment when theres a well placed Leman Russ shot. Other then that they're awesome, but I only really plan to take psycannons with them.

And I think it'd be funny to play a 1600-2000 point game with Draigo, another GM, and 20 paladins (not competitively of course).

I'm figuring that if I get Purifiers I'll throw halberds on them. Between Purifying Flame and the upgraded initiative there shouldn't be much of an enemy left to strike back.


I'm sticking with old models for the most part, but I'm looking at getting a interceptor team in plastic. I'm not keen on the teleporters and static legs though, so I'm going to use some sanginary guard legs with the rest of the Grey Knight kit. The legs don't fit in that well on account of them having knee pads, but I figure they'd have specialised armour for bounding through the warp, kind of like the girl needs leg braces in Portal. I'm going to convert the jump packs, minus the wings, into teleporters with some fine wire.

Purifiers and halberds should rock.

Purifiers with Psilencers and halberds or falchions against anything short of a terminator will be nasty...

I prefer the new ones, the fact that their plastic wins it for me, so much more conversion oppurtunities and the models in general are beautiful.
