Surprisingly our librarians can take storm shields now, granting them a 2+/2+ in close combat! I've also decided to repaint my purifiers to be strike grey knights again since I've found that the 8th edition version is a bit weaker than 7th. If anything Paladins have become the new MVP since they have 3 wounds, can teleport and can bring MUCH more pain in melee. If ever I want to change it up I can switch out 5 paladins for the gunship, which belts out a laughable 40-50 shots with combined weapons.

If this new edition has taught me anything so far its that I'm going to need much more dice to play XD.

take the stormraven and if you have any room for it, take this aswell on him:



which costs 168 or 180 points with incinerator instead of the stormbolter Smile

and the stormraven is awesome. the dread can get really deadly really fast thanks to the speed of the stormraven. turn 2 charge guaranteed.
a 2++ libby in close combat is also great Very Happy


btw. brotherhood champions.... they fricking rule just to let you know Smile

I like that there are keywords now.
Let's just hope they mean something as well.

Are the templates gone?

templates are gone. keywords are used for abilities auras and such stuff. some terrain features affect different types of unit keyword types and so on.

Had my first 1500 points game yesterday against Necrons with the new 8th edition rules proper.

Grey Knights are a wrecking ball! Took 5 turns but I tabled him with only moderate casualties. Killed his Night Bringer in 1 turn!!!

I might change the incinerators to psycannons for my strike squads since there is a mild flaw in their use. They have an 8 inch range but when you deep strike you must arrive at least 9 inches away from an enemy. Making them out of range at the first go.

jup incinerators are good but mostly on interceptors for me.
psycannons are mostly the way to go.

the psilencer got more interessting though. you can wound most stuff on at least 5+ now (unless its T8 or higher) and its amount of fire and damage aint bad
