How much CP do you guys have? 3 cp for a Patrol detachment would give him 1 turn of psybolt, with a spare CP for the rest of the game.

 

BTW, I assume you're talking about purgation squads if he has more than 2 silencers per squad. Also, psybolt ammunition only works on bolter type weapons, psilencers require psychic onslaught stratagem (2cp), so either he was buffing the stormbolters or the psilencers.

Yes, it was 3 CP at 500 and 750, barring any selections which buffed or refunded CPs.

 

No, I'm talking about Strike Squad, he only had 1 Psilencer.  Yes, I'm aware psybolt ammo only works on bolters, and I'm aware it's 2 CP.

 

But drop a 10 man strike* within 12", behind LOS wall, cast Astral Aim.  That's 36 rapid fire storm bolter shots that ignore cover and reduce by a further 1 AP, wounding GEQ-TEQ on 3's.  Turn 1 (which he stands a good chance of getting because small/elite force) that's going to take a big bite out of many 500 and 750 pt. armies.

 

*we played non-Beta rules so he could just teleport them in, but even without he could GoI them where he needed them.

And this is a HUGE change. 

 

Perhaps, but you do realize not every game of 40k in the world is played at a 2k point level right?  In fact most games in my local meta are closer to 1k - 1.2k because there are a lot of working adults with kids and families that don't have time to play bigger games.

 

And so all I'm trying to point out here is that it's disingenous, and a failure, to say GREK KNIGHTS SUCK SO BAD OMG I CAN'T PLAY THEM but then admit, "oh, 500/750 pts, yeah, sure they are very good at *that* bracket, but NO ONE Plays it", except, oh wait, yes, they do.

 

Anyway I guess I'm not going to change anyone's mind and that's ok.  I think most of the page 1 issues that the OP wrote about that I agree with are things that affect Astartes in general (Termies and the Tac profile in general being way overcosted, dreads (of any name) suffering the -1 penalty to move and shoot heavy weapons).  But as an RG player, I'm lucky, because most of the other chapter tactics suck hard, and I would say several of them are worse than GK.

The HUGE change isn’t playng at 500 points. It’s don’t consider the rules related to CP and detachments.
