Can This be made into a decent 1k List?

Post by Goat Horns on Mon Apr 25, 2011 7:54 am

Hello. I'm new to 40k and grey knights and came herefor some assistance with a list. I've played fantasy for the last few years and played Tau for about a year before that.

These are the models I have/going to have soon.

5 Strike Squad
10 Terminators (not sure if these work best in two 5 man squads)
5 Purifiers
Brother Champion

Now I'm not sure if these models would work best going into a 750 or a 1000 point list. I've worked out that all these models are 720 base.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

It's a good core group and could work well. For best performance though try to max out the Purifier squad as soon as you can. You'll want to wipe out anything you charge in the first round of assault and 5 guys may not be enough against some units. You have a good base of models there though.

Why are 5 strike squaders and 5 are purifiers? Why not make a 10 man squad of one or the other?

Purifiers have to have DTs remember cause otherwise they'll be footslogging. unlike their strike squad and interceptor brothers they cant deepstrike into battle.

I think your list is a decent starting point Corennus, however the Brotherhood Champ should swap the digital weapons for psybolts since he gets no use at all from the digi weapons.

Really want 5 more guys for the strike squad and to give is PsyAmmo/Bolts.

The Purifiers you need to choose CC or shooty. If you want a mix, go 2 PsyC, 3 Halb or 2 Halb/1Hammer, then the next squad you can go 2 more PsyC, 1 sword, 2 Halb and end up with a CC combat squad (4 Halb, 1 Hammer) and a shooty squad (4 Psycannon). Add a vehicle for the CC squad to run it forward, the razorback with psyammo is cheap and nasty, or just a rhino.

Pretty sure the brotherhood banner also replaces another NFW, so I don't think its worth it in a 5 man squad of GKT. 4 Halb/1Ham per squad and a Psycannon is a good loadout however.

BC would work well with a squad of CC orientated Purifiers.
I think GKSS are far more shooty orientated for various reasons, and their combat prowess (such as it is) is a backup.

If you have/can get a spare GKT you can create your own GM/BC/Librarian which is an easy and flexible set of choices if the gear can represent any of them.

His anointed weapon only rerolls to wound. Rerolling to hit (particularly when using Rapier Strike) can be the difference between that monstrous creature being taken down in one round of combat, or turning the match into a slogfest.

I know that, but Digital Weapons gives a single re-roll to wound, which he already has from his Anointed Blade, hence they're pointless on him.
