My first GK army list, 1500 pts

Post by meecham63 on Sat Jun 08, 2013 3:00 pm

Hi brothers !

After having play Chaos Space Marines and Tyranids for years, I am starting a new glorious army of the most venerable chapter, the Grey Knights. I would like to have your opinion on the list I have build. Before any comment, you must know that :

- I still don't have any inquisitor troops or figs in stock, so I do with what I have now
- I usually play against necrons and heavily terminatorized Dark Angels

So :

HQ : Grand Master Aquillion, with mastercrafted deamonhammer, three servo skulls and rad grenade

Elite : 3 paladins (they will be with the Grand Master) 2 deamonhammer, 1 Warding Stave. The WS is here to absorb most of the wounds.

Troops : 10 terminators (squad Albignac) : psybolt ammo, 1 psycannon, brotherhood banner, 2 deamonhammer, 5 nemesis Force swords, 1 warding Stave
Troops : 10 terminators (squad Beauffort) : psybolt ammo, 1 psycannon,brotherhood banner, 2 deamonhammer, 6 nemesis Force halberds.

Heavy Support : Dreadnought Hottinger, 2 twin-linked autocanon, psyblot ammo.

If you want to comment or give me advises, I have in list :

- Draigo
- Stern
- 2 terminators with banner
- 2 terminators with Warding stave
- 6 terminators with hammer
- 6 terminators with halberds
- 2 terminators with falchions
- 4 terminators with swords

- 1 squad of 5 interceptors
- 12 marines with halberds, 1 incinerator, 4 psycannon

I built 10 terminators unit, because if the mission played is Purge the Alien, I have few points to give, and they will be hard to earn for my opponent. If the mission is Crusade, I will split the 2*10 units in 4*5 units.

Am I right ?

I like the list, Once you get up close to someone they ARE going to feel it Twisted Evil Although I recommend giving your ten man Terminators another Pyscannon each. Imho you can never have enough Psycannons on the field.

Yeah, unfortunately I don't have more than 2 psycannon. And I will not engage a shooting contest against necron : have to deal with them in CC

I use Psilencer and ask if my opponent minds if I call them Psycannons and use them as such. I dont run my army as a shooter either. Instead I use the firepower power of the Psycannons to soften up my enemy before I get into CC with them. Use them right you can soften a Terminator Assault Squad up enough that a Strike Squad can kill it in CC.

Yeah, I don't know if I am better to build multi-purpopse terminators units, with a mix of hammer, stave and swords and a psycannon; or specialized units with only hammers in on hand, only swords on amother...

I think I will test it on the battlefield Wink

I'd go for a mix in your termies. It's good to have multiple attacks at different initiative steps. Though go only with one Warding stave and only on 10 man termi squads.

Wardin starve is maybe not necessary against necrons or others low AP CC weapons, but against Dark Angels and their thunderhammer / powerfist terminators, I think it could be usefull
