How big will your GK army be?

Post by Rivan on Sat Jul 16, 2011 1:42 pm

One thing I love about the new codex is we now have a more defined force organization. I love knowing that there are 8 Brotherhoods and we even know roughly how a Brotherhood is organized. So, I sat down and decided on a project that supercedes all my other 40K projects...finishing a whole Brotherhood complete with their dedicated war machines. Long (and expensive) project for sure but I'll chip away at it over time Razz Will I ever use them all at the same time? Probably not, or maybe in an apocalypse game? This is more for the hobby enthusiast in me Smile BTW, all these will be using the new plastic kits (or FW models). After counting all the models, it totals up to:

100 Battle brothers, 3 Officers, 3 dreadnoughts, 2 NDK, 4 skimmers, 9 tanks, 2 heavy flyers + 23 special unit models = 146 models

Grey Knights 7th Brotherhood + special units (those in bold and italics are models I already have or finished)

Grandmaster
Brother Captain
Brotherhood Champion

10 x GKT

10 x GKT
10 x GKT
10 x GKSS
10 x GKSS

10 x GKSS
10 x GKIS
10 x GKIS
10 x Purgation
10 x Purgation

2 x Dreadnoughts
1 x Ven. Dreadnought (using the FW Contemptor model)
2 x Nemesis Dreadknights
4 x Stormravens
3 x Land Raiders (one of each variant: LR, LRR, LRC)

3 x Rhinos
3 x RB
2 x FW Thunderhawks

Special units:

Librarian
7 x Paladins (GM's personal retinue)
15 x Purifiers

What an awesome project!
You actually have A LOT of the 7th Brotherhood already, not really to unrealistic of a goal really.

Why have you chosen the 7th? Is there fluff in the codex about the different Brotherhoods that makes the 7th stand out for you, or do you just like the number 7?

This is an awesome project, and something that I want to do myself. To be honest, doing something like this isn't unfeasible due to the plastics nowadays. Does that mean that you won't be having any Purifiers in your force at all then?

@Valten: I'm sure I'll be using Purifiers sometimes, but not in any big numbers. That's why I think having 15 Purifier models around should suffice. Personally, I lean more towards Paladins Smile Also, I'm sticking to the fluff that there are usually only around 40 Purifiers at any given time so they're pretty rare IMO.

@Constantine: No fluff-related reason. I just like the no. 7 Smile

Did you make up the list for the 7th brotherhood or did you find it somewhere?

Very nice idea by the way.

That army would be pretty cool Rivan and would be neat to see all laid out in one pic. Especially with your talent for painting. Hopefully one day we'll see it soon. Unfortunately, my army will only be growing by one NDK as I no longer have a desire to line G-dubs greedy coffers anymore. I'll definitely be looking out to see how your Brotherhood progresses though. Smile

I think that you forgot to bold and italic your Librarian......

That means you only need to get:
- 10XGKSS
- 10XGKIS
- 20XPurgation
- 1XVen Dread
- 3XRB
- 15XPurifiers

59 models and you are DONE an entire Brotherhood!!!! Shocked

You're right, I forgot to bold/italics the libby.

However, you forgot that I still need 20 x GKT Razz Also, I'm adding a techmarine. I think each Brotherhood should have a techmarine to administer to their vehicles right?

So that's a total of 80 more models Smile

The addition of the techmarine does make sense, AND it will be a cool conversion oportunity Very Happy

80 models........................ That is a lot, but still not unmanagable.
I guess you are a little under half way right now.
The thing is that you have already bought all of the expensive stuff, which must make things seem a little less overwhelming right?

Only the 8 crusaders for the retinues and 3 of the Culexus Assassines are missing. The second Stormraven and the second LR are unassembled. Oh and iīm waiting for the Contemptor Dreadnought to replace the converted BA librarian dreadnought. The Contemptor looks soooooo GK style.

Nice project Rivan! Very Happy

I too have my own brotherhood "in Contruction":

SGM Kaldor Draigo (WIP)
Castellan Crowe (WIP)
GM Mordrak (need to do the conversion)
BC Stern (ready, my first Gk model from 3rd!)
Inquisitor Valeria (using a Sisters model is ready)
Inquisitor Hector Rex and Retinue (ready, from my old collection)
OM Inquisitor (ready too!)

30 GKSS (20 of which I already have them from my older DH army. They're all converted to Swords, with NF Falchions)

20 GKIS (10 of which I already finished assembling. The painting is the hard part...)

30 GK Purifiers (All of them assembled and ready to be painted)

20 GK Purgation (5 of them only, as they are my old metal models, need to get them later)

30 GK Terminators (10 of which are ready, since they are my old DH models. the other 20 models are already assembled)

15 GK Paladins (all assembled and ready to paint)

3 Razorbacks (got only 2)
3 Rhinos (got only 2)
2 Stormraven gunship (both of them are assembled and waiting to be painted)
2 Nemesis Dreadnights (same as above)

Still putting together my inquisition warband, but I'll definitely use some alternative models.

Now that i look at it, it's a lot of work! Hopefuly I got them all ready before christmas.. Razz

Ok, to make one thing clear. The units i have posted yesterday are only the new GK models. I can muster the same amount in old metal GK. Not exactly sure but at all it must be something between 17000 - 20000 points of GK godness.

30 GKT of some form.
2 Dreads
1 LR
1 SR
30 PAGK
2 NDK

1 Lib, 1 GM

Probably about 3-3.5k points minimum, 5k with upgrades and paladins.
If I bulk it out, it would probably be with more SR's, Dreads and GKT
