GK strike squads
« on: July 15, 2015, 05:54:27 PM »
GK strike squads... Does anyone use them? Is there any use for them? I got 60 of the things and no idea how to use them. Anyone have any tips for using these guys?

60 obsec marine models can always be a tricky thing for people to deal with. Grey Knights are even more annoying to deal with. Just keep them dirt cheap with no upgrades at all, except maybe a few daemon hammers or psycannons.

So, I do what exactly with them? Go strike force and deep strike them all in?

I would love to see that happen.

Whether it's a good idea or not is another matter though :P
Play more games, paint more models...

Combat squad all of them and deep strike them in turn one.  Purifiers can combat squad in the raven and then unleash burning death when they pop out.  This gives me 17 warp dice to play with.

I wouldn't use the detachment in the codex. I'd use a combined arms detachment. All those troops units which combat squad..You want those to be Objective secured models.

Maybe drop the Raven and purifiers for 2 dreadknights to sit on the board turn 1 and then shunt turn 2?
