So ive played Grey knight now for about 2 years, getting lucky enough to have gotten the official models from FW
I am all for them being elite and a little more expensive for better gear, but at the game time, they have to be playable.
I really don't get the change of Strike Squads from 300 for 6 to 325 for 6.
Im fine with tossing out the inquisition stuff mostly as id like just grey knights.
Was the 2+ FF for Purg to good? Feel like that should have stayed 2+
this isn't specifically targeted at you, but the rule of thumb is in a 3k game, you want at least 10 activations. They seem to really struggle with that.
They are a CC/FF army. The big problem is to make their units good and solid, able to win assaults, you need to add in eternal warriors/characters to many squads. That gets very expensive, for something that isn't that great.
Right now I have
6 Strike - Grand Master 2 Dreadnoughts 1 hunter+Rhinos
6 Strike - Libarian 2 Dreadnoughts - 1 Hunter Rhinos
4 Purge - 1 Brother champion
Thunderhawk gunship (both Purge transport to assault in it)
4 Interceptor - 2 Dreadknights (teleport in)
4 Land Raiders
4 Terminators - normal master
Its around 3600 some points. To fit it in, I have to drop the interceptor squad, and both squads of fighters. Gives 7 Activations, which is way low as the killing power isn't that high
I could look at lowering the Strikes to 300...but that's only going to save you 50 across your whole list.....
I think the feeling on the Pargations was that 2+ was too good, but I'm open to opinions on that.
I agree that it's difficult to get a lot of activations, especially ground formations that can score objectives. I'd say that is my biggest struggle in producing a viable list. It will need to be solved for the list to move out of experimental status.
Have you tried running one or two imperial warbands?
