Didn't see this posted here. Mono Grey Knights army won the Briscon 2019 ETC Tournament. About 68 participants total, the winner played against some fairly good lists.

 

Reddit Discussion here:

Games streamed here:

 

https://www.twitch.t..._network/videos

 

Army list:

 

Brother Captain (halberd + storm bolter) - warlord 112   
Loremaster, Gate of Infinity, Hammerhand, Fury of Deimos

 

Lord Kaldor Driago 180

Gate of infinity, Astral Aim

 

Grand Master in Nemesis Dreadknight (Great sword) 205    

Sanctuary

 

Apothecary 75    
Astral Aim

 

Paladin Squad (10 models) 514

Gate of infinity, 4x psilencers, 2x Warding stave, 8x halberd 

 

Purifier squad (10 models) 210   

Vortex of doom, 10x falchions 

 

Purgation squad (5 models) 105    

Sanctuary

 

Land raider (2x twin lascannon + twin heavy bolter + storm bolter) 299

 

Land raider (2x twin lascannon + twin heavy bolter + storm bolter) 299

 

General observations:

 

- Notice those Warding staves on the Paladins? Like baby storm shields.

 

- Good call minimizing CPs. Our Stratagems are useless.

 

- 2x Land Raiders is a bold choice. He mostly used them to sit on objectives.

If you got crap strats don't waste time and effort hoping for your turd to turn into gold. Use the standard strats and bring the pain.

List looks like it could be quite effective. I'd like to have a look and see how the purifiers got on.

 

I said it previously over in the recent GK tactics thread that I seriously think we are trying to force the use of battalions which I just don't think work well with GKs in the first place. I think the trade off in command points for the ability to forgo strike squads is well worth it honestly. Not to mention that strike squads generally need a buffing character and the psybolt strat to show some inkling of effectiveness anyway.

I seriously think that GW developed some armies to NOT use battalions, and to use multiple Vanguard and Outrider detachments, to build the army with the models YOU love for the play you want.

But things went awry with people taking the most powerful choices (because of course they would).

Tried to watch the saved livestream but damn 480p and a slightly shakey cam make it unwatchable.

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Can't watch for some reason. But did the guy combat squad the paladins and purifiers?

I don't think so.

 

Part of the tournament format includes:

1. Gaining a victory point for every unit you destroy.

2, Gaining an extra victory point if you kill more units than your opponent per game turn.

 

So, having to chew through 2 landraiders, 10 paladins, 10 purifiers buffed by Draigo and an Apothecary...is basically denying your opponents potential victory points for most of the game.

Thanks for letting me know! @waking

Wonder if this list would work in regular scenarios? As it is a little out of the ordinary

Only one way to know. Try it a few times and report back. ;)

(I wouldn't expect too much from it though)

What detachment is that? 3x HQs, 3x elites and no troops?

It's an outrider and vanguard detachment (says above each bit :)) really interesting concept but as he says it fitted his meta as he knew that the top armies wouldn't have any counters to what he brought but mid level (more casual players) would have the tools to defeat it. Would love to try it out but who has landraiders these days lol

Well he certainly promotes the Paladinstar and would be willing to try mass Purifiers (3x10-man squads) in vehicles by dropping the GMNDK. Interesting...
