Daemonhunters: Grey Knights As an Army Part 2; The List  

Posted by Michael Hogan in , , ,

(...and I'm all out of bubblegum)
As said in the first real post of this blog, a Daemonhunter army can focus on many different units and upgrades. Now hopefully after going through my posts related to these options, you will clearly see that. And with this, hopefully you will be able to design a successful list. However, it is not uncommon for people to seek out some sample army lists.
Now I will say this right now: these are not game-winning armies. They are not so much min-maxed or perfect in any way. These are just some lists I enjoy or would view as fun/viable. I wish I could point you in a direction for the perfect army for you, but each player is a different gamer and requires a different list. And still, these are not the best overall player lists. Again, simply they are my lists that will hopefully give you a skeleton for your own. Lastly, these were made using ArmyBuilder and any errors on them I will hopefully fix, but often I don't catch them and all at 2000 points as I believe it is easier to cutback on points than add more when designing a list. Without further delay, I give you some sample lists.

Some interesting lists there!

I'm very much the purist GK player, although I have liked the idea of assassins for a while, but I notice you don't have any GKT heavy lists..
Any reason for this?

I'd also be interested if you have any BA/GK hybrid lists, as I am interested to see if it could work, and because I know other people have mentioned it in the past!!

I also notice you only really use one LR when many people like them in pairs or greater, any reason for this? (Sorry if its answered elsewhere just starting to read through all your articles)

I was actually planning on doing a couple more Land Raider heavy lists (using two or even three) with this post that would be also Terminator heavy, but I didn't want to flood the post and leave some discussion. I'm definitely going to talk about a triple or double Land Raider list, with or without a lot of terminators.

For Blood Angels-Grey Knight lists, the most I have heard is taking Grey Knight Terminators and using them as a "Deathstar" (meaning a squad that is able to slaughter almost every squad out there while not being fragile) unit with a Sanguinary Priest, but you could probably add more Grey Knights to a list like that. It is something I would have to think about a bit more, but it probably could work!
I'll try to get back with those lists/tactics soon.

I got bored quickly with the LR lists personally, as they are sometimes hit and miss especially with the prominence of melta and anti tank in the meta game, but I've actually been wondering on the viability of a GKT heavy puritan army, probably with lots of Dreads (footslogging that is).

If there was an easy way to just add in a few Sang priests I'd probably already be on my way to working it out but having to have a HQ and two troop from BA to make it all work has kept me working within the BA codex for now.
The one interesting this is how BA add melta and locator beacon choices.

I was also wondering, are you the same Xethik who used to post on the Grey Knights Forum (forumotion)?

August 21, 2010 at 1:15 AM

I have an account on the Grey Knights Forum, but I've never posted there. I know I'm not the only Xethik out there though, so it is possible someone went by my same name.
