Hello again. This is a spin-off from the list I used in my latest written battle report (http://www.bolterand...s/#entry5690912). I call it a Gathering of Champions because it features both Draigo  and Voldus, an Ancient, some Paladins and some Purifiers - basically the Chapter's top dogs. The idea is to have a lot of options for super Convergence bolters, a decent amount of psiweaponry and significant Mortal Wound potential. Here's the kicker... it is a single Vanguard detachment. Yep, you read it right, a single Vanguard. Now this means I start at 9 CP, but in my latest game I also started a 9 CP, between two Patrols and an extra relic, and actually felt ok with that thanks to Command Phase CP and Empyrean Domination. The list is therefore lacking any troop choices (I'm working with the models I own) but to be fair, most of the time my troops get shot up pretty bad as they are really lacking in resilience. Instead, I've got a brick of Paladins (that can get up to a 4++, have 3 wounds and can benefit from both -1D and -1 to wound against them), a brick of Purifiers (that can reach a 3++, although then the Paladins are only at a 5++) as well as some fast moving Interceptors that can Combat Squad if I really need to spread out/I want to spam Smites, or can stay grouped for maximum Psybolt potential. Between the two tough units and the mobile, high-quality firepower that supports them I feel I have a better shot at holding objectives than by fielding multiple squishy troop units. In all fairness, I really do think Grey Knights need to be looking at getting the opponent off of objectives while holding a couple themselves than trying to cover every objective on the board. Draigo provides re-rolls and a Vortex/Purge combo, while Voldus packs most of my supporting powers. The Ancient is there for the +1 attack/exploding 6s combo when the Paladins make it (hopefully) into combat. The Dread is there to fill my remaining points/slots, and adds a little bit of out of LoS anti-tank.


Feel free to tear it apart!
