List Review

Great podcast as always!!

Ive been out of the 40k loop for a few months and have an upcoming Maelstrom tournament using a Highlander format. I decided to take my Grey Knights and this is the list Ive come up with, any tips would be great.

Note: Im restricted in what models I already have from the last codex, and wysiwyg criteria for the event.

Cheers

Im having trouble trying to come up with a ‘pure’ GK list, so Ive been looking into allies other than Knights and have tried to focus on abusing Draigo, unfortunately only CAD’s from the rulebook can be used, so no Nemesis detachment.

Primary CAD: Grey Knights

HQ

Librarian – ML3  [135]

Troop

Terminator squad (5) – Psycannon, 2x Hammers, 3x Halberds  [206]

Terminator squad (5) – Psycannon, 2x Hammers, 3x Halberds  [206]

Heavy

Dreadknight – Sword, Teleporter, Heavy Psycannon  [205]

Dreadknight – Sword, Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator  [190]

Lord of War

Draigo

Allied Detachment: Space Marines

HQ

Tiggy [165]

Troops

Tactical squad (5) – Combi-Melta, Multi melta, meltagun, Drop pod – locator beacon  [145]

Heavy

Centurians (4) – Grav guns, Hurricane bolters, Omniscope  [340]

    Look up Kantai Collection.
    It’s an awesome battleship anime, where all the ships are schoolgirls
