Hey guys, so I've been reading over my GK book. I haven't really given them much love in a long time since the Draigo star ruled everything.
I have been looking into vamping up my GK force into a slightly more competitive army. I have seen that lots of Purifier squads running about casting as much Cleansing flame powers as possible is a good way to go and of course a ML3 Librarian is always a good choice to add to the physic might.
I have seen alot of people also mention using Castallan Crowe in such a force. Of course being "Champion of the order of Purifiers" it would make sense fluffy wise. The main reason people take him is because he comes with Cleansing flame as stock and thus giving you another chance to cast the awesome nova power that is it but I'm having a hard time trying to justify paying 175 points just to get a single cleaning flamer power...
I know that he has an amazing WS8 and I6! But then is stuck with "The blade of Antwyre" he is S4 AP- in combat and only has two wounds... A Librarian turned into ML3 with the "Domina Liber Daemonica" is only 160pts and then has a 4/6 chance of getting cleansing flame. (5/6 if you count the chance with the possible WL trait) And is a much more powerful physic character with more than 1 trick up his sleeve.
Am I missing something with Castallan Crowe? Is there more to this man than a 175pt Cleansing flame?
