And what about the Primaris ? Do we have the right to take them ?

Chaplain confirmed : CC 2+ WS 2+ all the special rules and toys of a regular chaplain WITH the psyker hability of 1 power and 1 abjuration per turn for 150-160 points (i can't remember exactly)... a must if you ask me ! 😈
And the NDK for chapter master option is only for 30 points more !! Twisted Evil
No primaris allowed it seems... a pity and if you like flyers : Stormhawk and stormtalon are confirmed !

We shouldn't have primaris to begin with, we're a very niche space marine army with secrets we can't simply share with newly trained units that are just given to us. Primaris are meant for an all round opponent like xenos and traitors, that's why the other chapters got them. We handle things that they were not trained or designed for.

Besides, Primaris marines in a grey knight army feels... Like a downgrade really.

Well... it could have given to me the opportunity to paint new units and new armours that's why i would be pleased to have primaris in our codex ! Wink
Besides i would have liked to test and play the LR Excelcior for instance ! Twisted Evil
But to be true i would have been more pleased to have contemptors or Mortis dreads in our codex ! Wink
Halas ... it seems we still have to rely on the forge world book to play Mortis dreads... Evil or Very Mad

Just got the book today and already I am pleased! Twisted Evil

The gear we wished we had back in the last codex are now back, but as strategems. The ones I see being used the most are Psybolt Ammunition (2CP) which takes all your bolt weaponry and adds +1 to their strength and AP, Psychic Onslaught (2CP) which does the same thing but to psycannons and psylancers, and Psychic Channeling (1CP) which lets you roll 3 dice for psychic tests and choose the better of the two

Each stratagem used is limited to a unit you pick to get the benefit and they only last until the end of the turn. so if you use the psybolt ammunition stratagem it can only benefit one unit in the shooting phase for that turn only.

You're using a stratagem that turns your storm bolters, heavy bolters and hurricane bolters into assault cannons for one turn, 2 command points seem appropriate.

To capitalise on that you get 3 command points by default and more for every formation you have in your army. If you had a battalion detachment then that's another +3, followed by +1 for any other detachment available. So at best having 6-7 command points you could use that stratagem 3 times. Other stratagems are available and are cheaper which adds more dynamic to your army like True Silver Armor (1CP) which lets you ignore MORTAL WOUNDS inflicted on your vehicles on a 5+, Mental Focus (1CP) which lets you use one extra psychic power beyond your unit's limit for one turn, or Wisdom of the Ancients (1CP) which turns your dreadnought into a Grand Master for 1 turn and grants anyone 6' away to reroll any failed rolls of 1 in the shooting phase or assault phase for that turn!

Those other stratagems are fun ! Twisted Evil
I was on vacations so i don't have my codex yet !... next week-end ! Wink
So i'll see ...
Do you intend to try our newly born NDKGM ( quite long acronym don't you think !! Razz )... i have the feeling that he could be a game changer.... scratch
