Greetings Brothers

Post by Battle Captain Garro on Thu May 29, 2008 3:51 pm

Hi all, new to the forums. Been playing 40K since 17, now 32. Bought a pure Grey Knight army when I worked for GW by weight, approximately 3000 points for a fraction of the otherwise ludicrous cost. Played it a number of times against a mates Word Bearers only won a game once by mistake and generally got owned against all comers, my poor dice rolls to one side I'm a fairly decent player so I figured the army doesn't really work. So I put them away and built up an Iron Hands army (and most recently pre-heresy Death Guard) but with the release of the new Codex Chaos Space Marines and Codex Daemons I have pulled them out of retirement to do the Emperor's work once more...beware chaos fiends.

see you all around

Hello and welcome. Hopefully your second go-around with GK's will be more successful than the first.

I've been playing 40K for about the same amount of time. I started with an SOB army, then moved onto Smurfs....I mean Ultramarines and Tyranids (An almost exclusivly Genestealer force Twisted Evil ).
Then about 6 years ago I came to my sences and started playing Grey Knights. I spent a great deal of time (and still do) playing Space Hulk which I now use Grey Knights for and adjust the background to incorporate Chaos tainted Stealers, that way I can justify the GKs preasence on the hulks.
Have you decided to hunt down the word bearers and show them how lucky they were the first time around Very Happy

Why have corrupted genestealers when there are so much else that would be much more fitting.

Like bloodletters, deamonettes and chaos beasts!

The reason I use tainted Genestealers is because I really like them and have a lot of models (apprx 30). I agree that blood letters etc... would be really awesome, but I don't have any spare cash Crying or Very sad Also when I do come into a little extra money I would rarther spend it on Grey Knights models.

Daemon infested hulks could make for some fantastic fluff though couldn't it?

Thanks for the welcome. From what I can see of 5th edition and with the changes in the Chaos Codices it seems that the Grey Knights might well experience a comeback of epic proportions. I've just ordered a MK.IV Grey Knight dreadnought with a TLLC and a GKCCW because...well because I am weak willed and they look sooo damn good.

I also need to buy another Land Raider because I just found a set of Forgeworld Grey Knight Land raider doors for which I forgot to buy the land raider. I already have a Land Raider crusader with all the trimmings, although like nearly all my armies they have yet to see a lick of paint. I'm really hoping to get some painting done in a serious way soon. With two Land raiders I should have all the rolling cover I need. I'll put a 10 man GKPA unit with an incinerator armed purgation squad in the crusader and another 10 man GKPA unit in the regular land raider and BANG, I will have myself a partey. With all this careless spending I won't be able to eat for a while but it's all a question of priorities Very Happy

My dream is to unleash all my Grey Knights in an Apocalypse battle...*drools* but in the meanwhile a chaos infested Space Hulk...interesting.

I am experiencing some serious MK.IV Dreadnaught and landraider envy right now.
It sounds like your GKs are going to packing a serious punch!!! Sucks to be a Daemon lol!!!
It sounds like you have some serious painting ahead of you, just remember slow and steady wins the race.
Stay strong Brother.

I would love to see an Apocalypse battle report with a pure GK force destroying a numberless hoard of Daemons!!! I'm getting goose bumps Very Happy

As for the Daemon hulk...the possibilities are endless, it could be a plauge hulk drifting into an inhabited sector spreading disease, or a Khorn hulk attracted by bloodshed at the sight of a particularily intense campaign. The old school space hulk rules could be used to incorporate bloodletters, deamonettes and chaos beasts oh my Shocked

Greetings, concerning Dreadnaughts I was maybe gonna buy an Epic Armagedon Warlord Titan and have it stand in for a Hellfire Dreadnaught, but I don't know if they are roughly the same size or not, but it won't really matter, because I can put it on display if it doesn't fit in!
