Are Grey Knights left handed?

Post by Constantine on Sat Feb 07, 2009 9:57 am

It just dawned on me that Grey Knights might be left handed!!! cheers
Which hand is dominant with you, and which hands would you hold a gun and sword in?

Naturally if I had only one weapon I would hold it in my left, but with two weapons I am not sure which would take priority scratch I think my gun would be in my left.

Hmmm...interesting question. Being right-handed I'd say shoot left and fight right. The reason being, if I miss with my storm bolter on my slightly inferior left arm I still have a chance to live with my good NFW right arm. If I'm in close combat and am fighting with a wonky left arm, as apposed to to my reliable right arm, then my chances of living to see another day are greatly reduced. That being said though, if I had the storm bolter on my far superior right arm to begin with, and not my totally inferior left arm like the dummy I am, I might greatly decrease the odds of getting into close combat in the first place and would not have to rely on the irritatingly uncoordinated left limb. Another option would be to have my storm bolter on my 'steady-as-a-rock' right and my NFW in my 'all-thumbs' left. If I somehow manage to miss the shot with my unerring right (got nudged at the critical moment of firing by the guy beside me) then I can transfer my NFW quickly from my 'crappy-can't-do-a-thing' left hand to my 'death-fisted' right just before close combat. This however may be a dangerous combo though as my 'tits-on-a-bull' left hand may not be up to the task of making the swift and unerring life-or-death-transfer due to the bulk of the storm bolter and the conditions arising from the heat of battle. This situation could ultimately lead to my having to to bend to pick my NFW up from the dirt and a possible decapitation before I even straighten up. Another question arises (even if the said transfer of weapon is accomplished) about the the possible weight hinderance of having both a NFW and a storm bolter on the same limb. This could render my 'lightning-appendage-of-death' right arm down to the same dreary level as my, "I don't now youuuu..." left. In which case at the most critical moment I'd be shackled with two equal and totally useless limbs. Taking all this into consideration, I'd much rather have a psycannon and get put in a Purgation squad where my lousy left arm can't do me, or anyone else, any harm.

PS maybe Grey Knights are ambidextrous tongue

I said gun in left, sword in right, as I am right handed.

But considering the training that Grey Knights go through, and the fact that the Storm Bolter is Gauntlet Mounted, means it is easier for them to shoot left handed.

Mind you I may be biased in this as I play Airsoft and can shoot just as well with a pistol in both hands.

Hmmmmm..... I think that i want to change my vote to holding the NFW in my left and SB in my right. You would need to have the CC weapon in your strongest hand for it to be truely effective.
Oh well I guess GKs are right handed Sad This means I have to make a new GM figure that is a south paw so he can be an accurate avatar of me Rolling Eyes

I think i voted wrong.

Well, let's see it like this, Constantine wanted to change, so let's switch vote eh?

I (right handed) would like my sword in my right hand, my left hand could be brazed with my right hand (like it would need brazing from the power armour and targeting systems built-in)

+ A grey knight would most surely be ambidextrous, if they aint, they are probably great shots instead and if they are not....

It's always good too have a trusty incinerator. Razz

I think we are agreed that you would hold your NFW in your dominant hand.
I also think that it is a good point that GKs are prophably ambidextrous. Smile

That really must be it as I heard that you GKs undergo some physical changes apart from those that the normal marines undergo.Kind of like chaos space marines mutations,but you guys of course undergo purer and not daemonical ones.Tho I don't think this information is correct as I heard it from unreliable source.

SB on the left arm, NFW on the right, I'm definately assuming GK's are right handed because you would always hold a close combat weapon in your main hand.

Biologically, if you are right handed, you use your left hand to steady yourself while using your right hand for precision work (the reverse is true for Lefties). As such, all GK models I've seen are right handed, as they are using their off-hand for stabilized work (stormbolter) and their right for precise work (Nemesis).

But that's just my take on it.

Right for the blade, left for the bolter. Slicing and dicing will take all the strength and skill you've got, and you can put a few rounds with the Storm Bolter at point blank without too much trouble. I'd figure that the Knights are capable of using both hands equally well.
