MSU with Grey Knights
I'm still thinking about Grey Knights a lot.
Like Space Wolves I have always liked the fluff of the army, Graham pointed out did I really want to start another power armoured army? The answer, yes, Its the Emperor's finest who attracts me to this game. I keep looking at making a Dark Eldar army but they just aren't Marines.
They still sing to me MSU and on Thursday a fellow first company vet was telling me about a Coteaz led army that features 9 Psybolt Razorbacks and 3 Psyfleman dreads. I wouldn't go that far because I would still want a majority power armoured army but I certainly like the style so here's what I think I'm going to build towards.
5 man Acolyte Squad with Melta Guns in a psybolt Razorback (thinking about changing that for a Rhino)
6 5 man Purifier squads 1 Deamon Hammer, master crafter weapon for the squad leader, 4 Halberds in psybolt razobacks
3 psyfleman dreads
so 6 scoring units
Vindicaire and Acolyte squad for dealing with heavy armour
21 twin linked strength 6 shots a turn
12 twin linked strength 8 shots a turn
Crowe is there firstly because I like Purifiers, secondly there aren't many power armoured HQ's most are in Terminator armour, thirdly on the charge he is great at taking out enemy HQ's.
So as always I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
