GW has put out quite a few Start Collecting Boxes, seems likely there will be a Grey Knights box at some point. So I thought it would be fun to speculate on the contents. So far the trend has been a generic yet army specific HQ, 10 troops, an army specific vehicle, and maybe a special unit (usually 3 models).
So, here are my thoughts:
HQ: almost certainly a Brother-Captain. He's the only unnamed HQ choice that is specific to Grey Knights.
Troops: probably 10 Strikes. Would be cool if it were 5 Strikes and 5 Terminators. Could also be some mix of Strikes, Purifiers, Interceptors, and/or Purgators. Mostly for purposes of making an interesting Formation with fluffy Special Rules.
Army Specific Vehicle: well, there isn't one. The Dreadnought is just a Space Marines one, so while the dollar cost is about right and is similar to other SCS boxes, it isn't GK specific. Same thing with a Rhino or Razorback. Dreadknight would be perfect from our perspective but quite unlikely considering how much GW charges for a single Dreadknight. Same thing with a 5 man Terminator team. So, I'm kind of stumped here. Maybe this is where the Formation calls for a 5 man team of Purifiers, Interceptors, and/or Purgators to go with 10 Strikes?
My best guesses are:
1 Brother-Captain, 5 Strikes, and 5 Terminators. Not as many models as most boxes but GW might figure that the Terminators will make up for the lack of numbers.
1 Brother-Captain, 5 Strikes, and 1 Dreadknight. An even smaller Formation. There's some precedence, Eldar only have 5 models in their's! Not sure that GW will put another Monstrous Creature in a Start Collecting box though. Tyranids got one but it is a logical generic HQ for them.
What do you guys think?
