Grey Knights take it once more at recent tourney!
Army list winners: https://spikeybits.c...tournament.html
All GK infantry, over 75 models, including a Brotherhood Champion, 10 Interceptors, 15 Purgation, 20 Strikes....AND 30 Purifiers!
So cool to show GK army has potential for a variety of competitive builds now.
Even surpassing runners up:
- 3rd Place DA Deathwing Army (majority Terminator models)
- 2nd Place Necrons Army (the beastly Silent King included)
Again, so cool!
As a Dark Angel player, Deathwing Terminators are insane with the inbuilt Transhuman, and with the Ancient providing a 5+ FNP, on top of having a 4+ invuln (+1 to saves), and 3W. You also have a 1CP strategem that gives them T5 for the turn, and a 2CP strategem that gives them Armoured Resilence, essentially. The way this is heading, the DA will be much stronger than the IH ever were in 8th. So hooray for quality control (or lack thereof).
As for the Grey Knights, I had actually a similar list to this, however I had 2 purgation squads, 2 interceptors squads, and one purifer/one paladin with terminators. Other than that, it gives me some ideas how to use purifiers - was there a video of this by any chance, as well as how he played them?
That is super interesting! Man, I'd love to hear him chat about why he took so many Purifiers. Looks like he's just trying to maximize the number of heavy weapons he's taking.
Looking at the list, I'd bet money it is about the heavy weapon quantities they can take. The list looks like a heavy weapon spam list and purifier squads are basically purgation squads with a different smite and a toughness enhancing strat (so, basically, better purgation squads.)
I like that analogy actually. Upvoted. However what stumps me is how he managed to get the Purifiers to do work with a D6 smite of 3", with no BC in that list. Was he spending CP points like crazy for Finest Hour, or something like that?
yeah, Tide of Convergence is probably lynch pin? with so many heavy weapons on infantry. I like it though, nothing is really worth shooting at. As in its basically all the same.
Power armour spam too which is nice to see. Where's Skywrath when we need him.
*powers down Nemesis Halberd*
Slaying the famed monster called end of turn exams. Hooray for Astrophysics major.
Next up, Tide of Convergence would definitely be the way to go, with the psilencer brigade list, I was in it pretty much the entire game. But this list reinforces the fact that quantity is the weapon we need to beat quality (marines). Which pretty much highlights my previous argument that psilencers are the way to go.
