Unorthodox/Creative Grey Knight Strategies
« on: February 01, 2017, 01:30:46 PM »
Sup Warmaster, so I've been thinking about competetive Grey Knight Lists....
and obviously, the only thing that needs to be said in that regard is DREADKNIGHT. Maybe them other allied KNIGHTS as well? How bout some DRAIGOCENTSTARS? The list goes on and on and on....honestly kinda done with that.

So here's the question of the day: What ideas/lists/armies have you ever come up with for a FUN Grey Knight army? And yes, while competetiveness is great, lets all put on our thinking hats and dream up the craziest, dankest, and especially stupid ideas for the Defenders of Titan.

....and THEN lets see if we can turn these ideas into something actually GOOD (what?! :o)

Mass Dreadnoughts? How about ATTACK OF THE GRANDPA'S!
What if we pretend to be wannabe Iron Hands in a (dare i say it) QUADRUPLE RAIDER (?!?!) list?
Perhaps Aircav for the win?
Or just slogging Purifiers, Strikes and Interceptors across the table as if they were ork boyz?
The possibilities are limitless.... ::)

So I encourage you, dare to step away from the established meta, and lets try something new, something crazy (probably stupid  :P)

So for inspiration, here's a quick 2000 point list thats called "PSYCANNONS, MOTHER******"

Nemesis Strike Force

Librarian (140)
Mastery Lvl. 3
Hammer

Terminator Squad (195)
Hammer
Psycannon

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons

Nemesis Strike Force

Librarian (140)
Mastery Lvl. 3
Hammer

Terminator Squad (195)
Hammer
Psycannon

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons

Nemesis Strike Force

Librarian (115)
Mastery Lvl. 2
Hammer

Terminator Squad (195)
Hammer
Psycannon

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons

Purgation Squad (170)
4 Psycannons



.....so there we have it. Go crazy. :o :P ;D

I think the only way for us to get something way out of the box is to run these guys with an ally. all the combos for a strickly gk list has been mentioned in past posts.  if maybe we had some different models in the army it would help but really all they have is terminators and power armour. 

I think it would get real interesting if we were to introduce like that stealth cadre from the tau.  i don't know the rules but i know those buggers put up some dirty rules.  i know they shoot enemy vehicles on rear armour everytime something strange like that, and i find with my gk i have issues with vehicles in the shooting phase.

I have just realized how unprepared I am. If someone was to run 4 Land Raiders, I would just be completely tabled, especially if they have flamers.
How about Castellan Crowe with loads of purifiers all racing up the board in Las Plas Razorbacks! Or, to fit the fire theme, Land Raider Redeemers instead of Razorbacks. That would be awesome! You could also field a few Dreadknights with incinerators and teleporters and keep them in reserve, so they can pop out and clear any objectives the opponent may have turn 3 or 4.

Sooo.... looking at the idea with the Land Raiders and Crowe and Purifiers... and while this is by no means an optimized list, this is what i could throw together that could work decently well.
It definently has more than enough power to deal with any kind of infantry, from marines to gaunts, and could probably even deal well with elite infantry like enemy terminators due to sheer number of S5 attacks alone (quintuple cleansing flame, anyone?). Because cleansing flame is autohitting and ignoring cover, i believe this list would actually be able to deal with enemy fliers decently well, as long as they aren't AV 12.
Where I do think this list will struggle is against mechanized forces, or just lots of heavy tanks as well. Perhaps that can be remedied by giving the Librarian something like Technomancy, or other disciplines adept at destroying vehicles? Also, since I gave everyone in here halberds, I'm positive one could find a little more room in here for other upgrades or even more units if one switched back to swords. So, without further ado, I present:

"Burn Baby, BURN"

Nemesis Strike Force

Castellan Crowe (175)

Terminator Squad (203)
1 Hammer
1 Psycannon
3 Halberds

Purifier Squad (292)
2 Incinerators
2 Hammers
6 Halberds

Purifier Squad (292)
2 Incinerators
2 Hammers
6 Halberds

Land Raider Redeemer (240)

Land Raider Redeemer (240)


Nemesis Strike Force

Librarian (135)
Warding Stave
Mastery Level 3

Terminator Squad (203)
1 Hammer
1 Psycannon
3 Halberds

Nemesis Dreadknight (220)
Hammer
Psycannon Incinerator
Teleporter

=2000 points on the dot.

Suggestions, changes, critisim, or other crazy ideas? Post em' here!

My unorthodox list is trying to fit in a Grand Master over a Librarian.

I do that anyway as I love the fluff of grand masters. Grand master Cameron, leading the 9th brotherhood to certain doom, but in doing so, they will save the imperium from the Chaos! :)

That is impossible my Grey Knights are of the 9th and we have never heard of your name.

I would like to think that the 9th is so shrouded in secret that not even other members of the 9th have even heard of each other.

So shrouded in secrecy that they don't even appear in the codex!
