Default considering new gk lists for the new edition....

I have been pondering the GK book since it came out......

The Grey Knights were my first army and have served me well over the years (got top daemonhunter in the autumn UKGT ) and i wanted to do them some justice in the new edition.

after some playtesting and a lot of "freindly" arguing/debating the usefulness of certain things I have come up with the following list:



HQ - Ordo Xenos Inquisitor 65pts
- Rad Grenades
- Psykotroke Grenades
- Ulumeathi Plasma Syphon

Elites - 8 Purifiers 291pts
- 4 Nemesis Halberds
- 2 Nemesis Daemonhammers
- 1 Incinerator
- 1 Psycannon
- Squad has Psycannon Bolts
--Rhino Transport

Elites - Vindicare Assassin 145pts

Troops - 10 Man Grey Knight Strike Squad 295pts
- 2 Nemesis Daemonhammers
- 2 Psycannons
- Squad has Psycannon Bolts
--Rhino Transport

Troops - 10 Man Grey Knight Strike Squad 295pts
- 2 Nemesis Daemonhammers
- 2 Psycannons
- Squad has Psycannon Bolts
--Rhino Transport

Heavy Support - Dreadnaught 135pts
- 2 Twin Linked Autocannons
- Psycannon Bolts

Heavy Support - Dreadnaught 135pts
- 2 Twin Linked Autocannons
- Psycannon Bolts

Heavy Support - Dreadnaught 135pts
- 2 Twin Linked Autocannons
- Psycannon Bolts


Total - 1496pts


i know the model count is incredibly low. This list actually has 1 more model than my old one

my old list was:

Grand Master - master crafted nfw, storm shield
- 4 man terminator retinue (1 hammer, 1 incinerator)

9 knights with 2 psycannons

9 knights with 2 psycannons

8 knights with 1 psycannon

standard land raider


old list served me well (as i said) but it suffered heavily against vehicles. the new list is better against infantry and has some pretty damned potent (if fragile) anti tank as well..... dreads with 4 twin liked shots at strength 8 will knock most vehicles out and the vindicare penetrated AV14 on AVERAGE if needed.



what does everyone think??

You might consider giving the purifier squad 2 extra guys so you can use combat squads and get 2 cleansing flames and 2 more heavy weapons. On the other hand, that's 2 kill points and you have to pay for 2 razorbacks.

Don't take psybolts on the infantry units; on average, they only give you 1 extra wound for every 6 hits you get.

I would also take 11 multi-melta servitors and put them in a chimera with your inquisitor. The psyflemen are cool but I don't think they're cost efficient. You're basically spending 550 pts on anti-tank (dreadnoughts and assassin). If it were me I would make room for the servitors, and a purgation squad.

I think your list is very good. And personally I don't like mixing my knights with inquisition (other than maybe a hq, which you have done) still It should be noted how powerful the inq choices are as the other member noted. With your extra 4 points I would put searchlights on your rhinos
