Grey Knights as Allies

Post by xxunphasedxx on Wed Sep 26, 2012 1:28 am

Hello Brothers

As i play many other armies, (Tau, Vanilla Space marines, Blood angels, Death Guard) i was wondering if we, The Grey Knights, as allies would work well? Grey knights are my favorite army because the look so cool and i love the few against the many idea, not to mention we kick @$$. But would they perform well when they are playing with others? For Example: a Tau gun line with Crowe walking/hiding and some purifiers in rhinos ready to counter charge, or Draigo and a handful of paladins holding the line, while the Tau shoot overhead. Does anyone think we are worth being allies? Is there a reason the tau shouldn't just put thunder hammer terminators in instead of us? What about other armies? Are there any that should consider us as allies before others? Who should stay as far away from us as possible? Just curious what my fellow brothers think.

The obvious problem with us as allies is we are so expensive that we will be eating a huge chunk of whatever army we are aligning with. But are we worth the cost of 50-30% of another army? When i think of allies, i think of parasites. if we get to big, we will impede its function to the point where they are no longer needed, so we have to find a symbiotic relationship with the host army, where both armies can excel.

P.S. I am not sure if this is already a topic somewhere else.

Thanks Brothers, xxunphasedxx.

I'd use Coteaz and his warbands for allies, 2 Assbacks full of melta/plasma acolytes plus some heavy support I guess could do the trick.

Anywhere you would use a standard terminator squad a Grey Knight Terminator squad does the same with a handful of advantages, the most important being that they are scoring in most circumstances. Obviously an assault terminator stormshield crew is harder to kill with ap2 weapons, but the GKT have flexibility on their side in that their shooting is fairly effective.

I think that Grey Knights are a great ally… but I am pretty partial. Laughing
I agree with brother Sai... Terminators as troops are probably the thing that makes GKs so desirable as an ally. They may be spendy but they really have a lot to offer to so many armies in the way of support, strength, and flexibility.

So i played a game with my tau and grey knight allies. my opponent was a eldar army with dark eldar allies. My Allied detachment was Draigo with a apothecary paladin i call tim... thats it. my opponent was upset that i was going to field more Grey Knights because he had never beaten them and was getting bored. so i dropped the original ideas on strike squads and subbed in Draigo and my opponent agreed. Draigo and his friend Tim were beasts, they paced in front of the gun line while my tau shot overhead, my opponents dark eldar eventually weathered the storm only to be slaughtered by Draigo, then a Wraithlord and a badly maimed squad of striking scorpions attacked Draigo and Tim but were beaten to a pulp. Draigo ate shot after shot and mopped up any survivors that made it near my tau. although it couldn't be a competitive list, it was fun and exciting. it does not say much for this topic but i thought it was still funny enough to share.
