It looks like fun, but how will it play?

Post by drakeharlem on Mon Aug 01, 2011 2:31 pm

Let me begin by saying I haven't actually played a game of 40k in about 4 years and I don't actually own a copy of the rule book so I'm a little fuzzy on some of the rules especially things that changed from 4th to 5th. I just happened to be looking at the Grey Knight Codex and decided to see what I could come up with by stuffing terminators into three Storm Ravens. There is very little thought behind this list beyond load everything into the Storm Ravens and disgorge it all down field somewhere.

HQ
[175 pts] Librarian - Nemesis Force Sword, Storm Bolter, Psybolt Ammunition, The Summoning, Sanctuary, The Shrouding, Servo Skull
[120 pts] Brotherhood Champion - Digital Weapons, Brain Mines, Psybolt Ammunition

Troops
[295 pts] 5 Grey Knight Terminators - 2 Daemon Hammers, 2 Halberds, Psybolt Ammunition, Thawn
[220 pts] 5 Grey Knight Terminators - 3 Daemon Hammers, 2 Halberds, Psybolt Ammunition
[245 pts] 5 Grey Knight Terminators - Brotherhood Banner, Psybolt Ammunition

Fast Attack
[255 pts] Psybolt Ammunition, Hurricane Bolter Sponsons
[210 pts] Twin Linked Multi Melta, Twinlinked Lascannon, Warp Stabilization Field
[210 pts] Twin Linked Multi Melta, Twinlinked Lascannon, Warp Stabilization Field

Heavy Support
[135 pts] Dreadnought - 2 Twin Linked Auto Cannons, Psybolt Ammunition
[135 pts] Dreadnought - 2 Twin Linked Auto Cannons, Psybolt Ammunition

Total - 2000 points

I doubt this even remotely resembles a competative list, but it seems like it would be pretty entertaining to play.

Welcome to the forums!

I like your attitude: well this sounds cool, I'll do a lot of it and see what happens. It makes me happy.

First off: Holy psybolt ammo, Batman! I would never take psybolt ammo on a 5-man squad. I would also never take Thawn, as he is neat, but doesn't really add very much (especially for 75 points). Removing Thawn and all the psybolt ammo (except from the dreads) will save you a whopping 150 points. I would also consider removing the Hurricane Bolter Sponsons because the points can likely be better utilized elsewhere. With these extra points I would add an extra terminator to the 5-man group that you will not be adding an HQ to, add a psycannon to each group, give the librarian warp rift (it really is amazing) and might of titan (maybe get rid of the servo skull?), and maybe try to find points to switch the B-Champ for a GM with rad/psychotroke grenades (they add so much to a unit).

I think the basic idea of this list sounds pretty fun though.

EDIT: Also, you only need 1 hammer in each 5-man squad, then the rest halberds. Hitting first is way more important than hitting hard once you've got that first hammer in there.

I actually wanted to get a Grand Master in there with the Librarian, but after putting all the other stuff in there all that would fit was the champion. In hindsight I can see that the psybolt ammunition is eating up a lot of points unnecessarily.

For just alittle over 100pts you could through in a ordo xenos in power armor with rad/psycho grenades and make him a level 1 pyscher. He would take up as much room as the brotherhood champion and cost about the same, but in my opinion would be much more useful.

Good point. Originally I may have been going for a pure Grey Knight list, to be honest I don't recall, but I agree the inquisitor is probably more useful.
