Welcome to Titan Brother!

You definitely want to get the Codex first and foremost and read up on it so you can decide how your GK army is going to look like. There are literally so many different combinations to build now.

Whatever you decide to do, getting a box of GK terminators and maybe a couple boxes of Grey Knights is a good start.

As far as background lore, there aren't a lot of books out there for GK's but the GK series by Ben Counter is a good read. While it may not mesh exactly with what's in the codex fluff wise, I'm pretty you will still enjoy it.

Again, welcome and feel free to ask your questions! Very Happy

Not sure where you're located but your better options for buying the stuff is probably from one of the online stores like

www.miniaturemarket.com or www.thewarstore.com

They usually give a certain % off the regular GW price. Again, not sure if you're in the US or not so it may or may not be a better deal for you.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay... at least until that time when the daemonic re-surfaces and then it's on to battle... Wink

Welcome to the forum. As stated above, best wait to you get the dex to see all the unit options offered to see which ones strike your fancy. Ain't like the olden days when GK list building was simple as 1-2-3. Smile

Welcome brother, Here are the steps: 1. GK codex (read cover to cover), 2. HQ model of your choice, 3. 2X troop choice, and grow from there. Take into account the fluff to get the gritty feel of being in the the Ordo Malleus, the mission of the Daemonhunter, being outnumbered as brother of Grey Knights chapter. May the godemperor guide you. cheers
