Grey Knights 500 points
« on: October 29, 2016, 02:41:19 PM »
New to the hobby, making my first list.
I will be playing friends that have space wolves, orks, dark eldar and blood angels. Me and my friends are all just buying into the hobby with our first armies. Unfortunately we don't live near a GW store so we will play basement games.
This is utilising the nemesis strike force organisation for GK. List follows:

Total 495 points.
HQ 120 points.
Librarian ml2, force warding stave, melts bombs, storm bolter. Warlord.

Elite 195 points.
Rhino as dedicated transport, no upgrades.
Purifier squad (5).
Knight of the flame with daemon hammer.
Two falchions, one halberd and one psycannon.

Troops 180 points
Rhino as transport, no upgrades.
Strike squad (5)
Justicar with daemon hammer.
Two falchions, one halberd and one psycannon.

Got the idea afterwards that maybe I could swap out the purifiers with a interceptor squad, same upgrades as the purifiers but swap the psycannon for a incinerator and remove their rhino. With the saved points I could upgrade the Librarian with a domina liber daemonica and swap the strike squads rhino fora razorback. Thought?

To be honest at 500 points I would skip the domina, then again I think Grey Knights are a tricky army to play at <1500.
Long term you will want purifiers, I just don't find interceptors do that much in bigger games... However at 500 points they are possibly worth taking.

At 500 points you could always be 'That guy' and take a dreadknight but I wouldn't necessarily advise it (you might lose a few friends) instead Id take one of the named HQs and not bother with transports. Librarians while good in larger games and cheap as well don't tend to do much in 500 points I feel, better to take say, castellan crowe with the purifiers.
