So we know we play a little extra on our guys due to them being Psykers.
But Techmarines are taking that to another level...
A normal Techmarine is 58 points (before upgrades).
A Grey Knight Techmarine is 91 points! A massive 33 point difference, or our Techmarines costing 57% more than their normal counterparts.
Smite and Psykout Grenades are not worth the disparity...
But it gets worse.
GK Techmarines seem to have lost the ability they used to have and cannot take Conversion Beamers any more. GK Techmarines are forced to take a Servo Harness, for in total an extra 28 points, not only making them 119 points *base*, but also locking out the Conversion Beamer.
(As a total aside, an Imperial list can take Fallen. You can outfit them with a
Stormbolter Combi-Bolter, Bolt Pistol and Power Sword. For only 1 point less than a Strike. Not great you might think, as Strikes Force Sword are d3 damage, and we get Smite. But Fallen get a second attack, +1 Ld, reroll 1's to shooting if haven't moved - including Overwatch - and only ever lose a single model to battleshock a round. Quite tasty!)
