The two 6 man Purifier squads go in the Crusaders (could change to Redeemers or normal land raiders since they have Frag Grenades anyway) along with the inquisitors giving them Str 5 so the Purifiers can cast Cleansing Flame OR go to Str 6....
Pyschotroke and Rad Grenades in effect...

then 3 rhinos full of 6 psycannons..

Now my experience with Grey Knights is limited but with my Necrons @1750pts I don't leave home without 3 troop choices just in case I have to play an objective game.

It's not a bad overall strategy, but I agree with Brother Shadow. You should try to focus a bit more on your troops choices. What will you do when you fight an objective game with 5 objectives? Your only option would be to absolutely hold an objective with each strike squad (praying they don't get mowed over) and make sure to contest at least 2 other objectives. Basically, there's not enough redundancy in the objective-holding category.

Yeah, both brothers are right. You'll have to inevitably combat squad your troops to hold objectives and in doing so, making 2 out of four squads very vulnerable to anything your opponent throws at them (specially against necrons and Monolith's pie plates).

Try including more troops. LRs are great, but having them transport Purifiers isn't a great point investment. Better give your purifiers Razorbacks, or rhinos. Leave the LR for your Termies/Palies or fire support.

Hope it helps!
