Wargear Stats

There is alot of information and summaries floating around about the units, powers, stats and points of models in the Grey Knight codex. Sadly however, there is still little solid information on the wargear available to the Emporer's daemon hunters.

This is thanks largely to the wargear sections being missing from the leaked playtest codex. Well, here and now I present to you a summary list of weapons and wargear in the codex given the most likely rumours.

Unlike some of my other posts, these are NOT based on strong rumours, but seem quite likely given the things we DO know. All compiled from various forums. Enjoy, and remember large pinch of salt. Much credit to Marmande of Bolter & Chainsword

Grey Knights Versus Tanks

During the early days of Grey Knights rumours, it was looking as though we were going to have a really hard time against tanks; with very few units having access to high strength long range weaponry.

As more rumours leak out and with a playtest version of the codex floating around the internet, it's starting to look like that might not be the case. Read on for more, but the picture to the right is a pretty big hint!

As usual, at this stage all based on (strong) rumours.

Every List Should Take Stromravens

OK, maybe that's an exaggeration. But the Stormraven is going to be one of the most useful and versatile units in the Grey Knight army.

At this point, all base on rumours, strong rumours, but still...pinch of salt!

The Rise Of Power Armour

Like many of you, I've been pouring over the Codex rumors, looking at possible army builds and effective unit combinations. And what I can mainly see is that we're going to be seeing alot of armies with few-to-no Terminators in it.

Follow Up - Thoughts To Come!

Well needless to say I've been obsessing over the new Grey Knights information over the last few days, working out rough army builds and themes based on the sizable amount of info we now have. I'll get to these thoughts soon in another post [read: large post] but for now here is another compilation created some some chaps over on Bolter & Chainsword who seems even more dedicated than me to orderliness! There's a few new bits of  info on here, but I personally haven't seen them confirmed by a reliable source.

Pinch of salt as always:

Epic Post Is Epic

OK, this is going to be a long one. Seems as though Commisar Ciaphas Cane on the "Bolter and Chainsword" forum has had a peek at the codex and is spilling the beans... Of course this is all still rumours, but it seems too detailed to be made up, anyway pinch of salt as always. 

The information provided is seriously broken up (its on a forum after all) and my favorite rumour site has "XX"'d out all of the points costs. My point is, putting it all in codex order with the points costs took a hell of a lot of work, so no apologies for messiness :p Mostly just copied and pasted, but I replaces some pronouns and the like here and there so it's readable. 

Enjoy :)

Army Ideas

I warned you people that I like to plan in advance.

Now that we have a pretty good idea about the shape of the codex, I can think about what my army might consist of. Remember of course, that just like the army list rumors which this is based on, it should be taken with a large pinch of salt.


Today is an exciting day, as the first leaked pictures of Grey Knights are leaked out. This gives us our first look at the dreadknight... which as it turns out is HUUUUUGE, at least twice the height of a Rhino. Infact, it quite reminds me of a mech-warrior. But without further ado, here are the pictures. Yes, they are blurry, but they're taken by a webcam off images shown on an iPad... so you get what you pay for.

All Roads Lead To...

Recently the rumour mills haven't been throwing out much new information on Grey Knights recently, but what has been happening is many of the sources seem to be agreeing with each other about which rumours are true, and the shape of the Codex is starting to appear. Here is what was posted on BoLs, and every other source seems to be agreeing with it:

Ultra Elite Terminators

OK, bit of back story. The concept behind Grey Knights is they want to bring out an ultra elite army. Small numbers of ridiculously powerful models. To this end they are bringing back 2 WOUND terminators.

Paladin Terminators. That's the current name for these bad boys. From the looks of this latest rumor they'll be able to have fun with all the wound allocation shenanigans as well.

So without further delay onto the rumor, Paladin Terminator options:

Psychic Powers News

Well, we've seen some more news on the blogosphere. Claims that the list below is what GK Librarians will get as power options. Only thing that gets me is what a GK "Librarian" is? As they're all supposed to be powerful psykers; maybe the author of this list was referring to the Grand Masters... we may never know... until April :p

Planning To Paint.

Well, I'm only going to have a couple of weeks time in which to paint up an entire army to a good standard.

To me, this means 2 things; I'll need a plan, and I'll need to Spray.

There's no way I'll get a whole army done in time if I don't spray my base coat AND my primary colour onto almost all of my models. This'll be done I imagine via a GW spray gun stolen (uh, I mean "borrowed") off of one of my friends.

Also I'll need a plan. I can paint, dry brush and highlight relatively well. However some advanced techniques have escaped my grasp. I plan this new army to be the change of all that (not forgetting I have to paint them all in record time!). To this end I'll be researching and planning my painting scheme and techniques well in advance for you lovely people to see and comment on before I put any paint to plastic!

The first new technique I'll be looking at is how to do cool power (or nemesis force) weapons.
