Is this the sort of grey knight list we will see on the tournament scene? Input required


So after talking with a fellow first company vet Martin who also happens to be a tournament regular and one of Darren's main targets to flirt with on Thursday night we got talking about nasty Grey Knight armies and this is what he suggested we would see.

Corteaz leading which clearly gives you Henchmen as troops and allows you to re roll your to seize roll and makes your opponent do the same.

3 Psyfleman Ven Dreads

5 5 man Acolyte squads with three melta guns in psybolt Razorbacks
1 8 man death cult assassin squad in a rhino

3 Psyfleman dreads

Comes to 1750 exactly

With that you have 12 vehicles who all will be rarely stunned and shaken
You have 24 twin linked strength 8 shots
You have 15 twin linked strength 6 shots
You have 15 melta gun shots
6 scoring units
and one semi death star unit who have 24 power weapon attacks I 6.

So what do people think, how would that fair at a tournament and how would you deal with it?

  1. Not really. Psyfledreads are good, but the Venerable upgrade doesn't add much and takes away from Purifiers/Paladins (or sucks points away from Henchmen.)

    Also the Henchmen assault squad is basically a gimmick, good lists won't be running it. Something along these lines is more likely:

    Inquisitor
    Inquisitor
    5 Purifiers (2 Psy, Psyback)
    5 Purifiers (2 Psy, Psyback)

    Henchmen: 3 MM Servitors, 1 Jokaero (Chimera)

    Henchmen: 3 MM Servitors, 1 Jokaero (Chimera)
    10 GKSS (2 Psy, Psybolt, Rhino)
    10 GKSS (2 Psy, Psybolt, Rhino)
    5 GKSS (Psy, Psyback)
    1 Psyfleman
    1 Psyfleman

    Something like that for a 1750 list. If you wanna get really harsh, swap the Inquisitors around for Coteaz and shuffle points so the henchmen are scoring. It's got the essential elements of a GK mech list (lots of shooty infantry with shooty tanks to back them up) and is pretty simple to play.

    I personally don't rate these kinds of lists where people simple fit as many Psyfleman dreads in with a mediocre/weak list to fill out numbers...I at the moment favour pure Draigowing at 1750 points...feel free to check out the Grey Knights of Titan blog at grey-knights-40k.blogspot.com (shameless plug lol) where I have got the list I use and tactics to play it properly...
