Perth Tournament - 1750

This Tournament has advertised that you shouldnt turn up unless you can build a competitive list.

This alone makes me want to play in it, although I expect to see some army builds that make me sick to my Stomach.

So what do I need to do? Well I need to build a 1750 list!

Here are the two I am seriously considering.

Grey Knight Grandmaster: Force Falchions, Incinerator

5 Purifiers: Rhino, 2 Incinerators, Force Halberd x 2, Daemonhammer

Grey Knight Strike Squad (10), 2 Psycannons

Grey Knight Terminators (10), 2 Psycannons

10 Interceptors, 2 Incinerators, Daemonhammer, Force Halberd x 7.

Dreadnought, Assault Cannon, Rocket Launcher, Psybolt Ammo

Dreadknight, Personnal Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator

Total: 1749

This list contains about as many elements of the Grey Knight book as I dare fit into one army. It has four units that can benefit from the Grand Strategy meaning none are wasted in scoring missions and gives me some good options to change from one game to the next. 

With the Interceptors and the Dreadknight that can really get in your face early in the game (even if Scouting doesnt allow my Teleport move) I can force my opponents into decisions they might not want to make early in the game. 

The downside here are no Servo Skulls so deep striking with me models could prove very dangerous.

The second list is as follows:

Grey Knight Strike Squad (10), Psybolt Ammo, 2 Psycannons

Grey Knight Terminators (10), Psybolt Ammo, 2 Psycannons, Brotherhood Banner

Grey Knight Interceptors (10), Psybolt Ammo, 2 Incinerators, Force Halberd x 7, Daemonhammer

Dreadknight, Personnal Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator

Dreadknight, Personnal Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator

Now I know this doesnt have a HQ choice. However my HQ choice is pretty Interchangeable between the following:

Grey Knight Grandmaster, Force Falchions, Incinerator


Grey Knight Librarian, Servo Skulls x 3, Warp Rift, Sanctuary, Might of Titan & Quicksilver

So this one has even more get in your Face units, and between them they should draw the fire from my standard troops units, or at least Dilute it.

As with my previous posts, I look forward to any feedback or suggestions you can provide.

Glasgow Gamers - 1000 Points!

So this coming Saturday I have a local tournament. Four games at a 1000 points.

Now this isnt my normal game size I tend to play at the 1500 point mark. So even with my Guard I would find a 1000 point list challenging.

However I am playing using my Grey Knights. Now a 1000 points of Grey Knights does not get you many mini's.

The 1000 point list I am currently favouring is as follows:

Inquisitor: 3 Servo Skulls

Grey Knight Strike Squad (10): Psycannon x 2
Grey Knight Terminators (7): Psycannon

Dreadknight: Personnal Teleporter
Dreadknight: Personnal Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator

Total: 999

This has a lot of Terminator Armour models to deal with, and upto 3 scoring units.

The Dreadknights admittedly are a personnal favourite of mine as they cannot be killed by that 1 lucky shot from a Rocket Launcher or even Autocannon like Dreadnoughts.

It struggles against the one list I know is going which is a Long Fang heavy, Razorback spam list (no offence Tom) but thats cause he has the Weapons to be killing my DreadKnights early in the game.

I could drop 1 Terminator and fit in Psybolt Ammo for both troops and it is something I am debating, equally I could then drop another Terminators and have both Dreadknights with a Heavy Incinerator the original list looked a lot like this to be fair.

Any hints tips or suggestions are gladly welcomed, and as I have to have models painted for this tournament you should all get to see some of my Grey Knights painted this next week.

Games in April

Pretty much as the title says, my games in April.

Slow start to my gaming month as I didnt get any games in between the 25th March and the 10th April, but with Birthdays and the like its always fun to fit the hobby in.

Since then however I have been cramming in the games with my Grey Knights trying to get to know the army and what it is capable of, pretty much the same opponents in Tom and my Brother so not as wide spread a chance to play other armies, but I am working on it!

I did however manage to get a load of painting done.

This next month is likely to be a bit of a quiet one as I am moving house, and it will mean a lot less time and pc access. Hopefully will be back up and posting properly in June (although this doesnt mean I wont be posting in May!).
