I'm guessing a lot of these posts where made before the updated codex?

Rhinos can be taken as a dedicated transport, and are actually quite advisable.

I read someone saying that they aren't a very good army against hordes or if you charge them?

Against Grey Knights, every army is a horde army, you can't have as many guys as pretty much any other army. And they'll die if you charge them? Every Grey Knights wields a force weapon and has at least power armor, some have (Tactical Dreadnought armor) so yes they are good at charging..


This was made well before the new codex came out.

What makes GK so tough to beat is that they all have power weapons, and they all have the option to strike at I6. A horde army will be able to live through the onslaught of power weapons, and then strike back with a ton of attacks.
Against say, Tactical Marines. They won't live through the first onslaught of power weapons. They don't have the numbers to survive it and still punch back. That's why horde armies can be the Achilles heel of the GK. They can take the hit, and hit back just as hard despite losing 5-10 guys.



Hey, this has nothing to do with what you said, all though it is true, horde armies do mess up GK, but what I was going to say is, In your signature, it has a quote, Is that a joke, because you do realize that was Winston Churchill that said that right?

Edited to maintain civility

I'm moving on from this issue, and I hope you are all able to do the same.

While the sound of power weapons on every unit sounds appealing, and gives the illusion that the Grey Knights will be superior in close combat - they are simply far from it vs a swarm army. I had the pleasure of playing my friend this last week who recently started an Ork army, and I will say - if it wasn't for my firepower before going into CC, I am sure I would have lost the game. I got close enough to unleash a few of my incinerators with my Interceptor squads thinking it would be enough to wear down his forces - but when it was his turn to hit back, he was STILL rolling buckets full of dice with 1 squad almost burnt down completely.

Swarm armies are truly the bane of the Grey Knights. I think our biggest strength in facing these armies is to try and create our own variant of a swarm (at least as "swarmy" as we can get). My army was 2 squads of 10x interceptors, 2 squads of 10x strike squads, 2 dreadnoughts with autocannons (w/ psybolt ammo of course!) and my HQ. This put plenty of "boots on the board" that I could stand against his list which was 76 units in a 1500 point game.

I think for my next encounter, after he realized how strong rolling handfuls of dice are against even power armor - he is going to try and initiate CC as quick as possible. What I plan on doing is playing mid field cat and mouse tactics with him and relying more on my firepower than my force weapons. I think I'll use my Interceptors as bait and kite around some of the ork forces in hopes that they try and catch up with the interceptors as they get kited around all the while the strike squads hammer on them with stormbolters and psycannons. I'll likely reserve the use of the incinerators for a coup de grace when one of their units numbers are low enough.

Or you could just use purifiers, which destroy everything both at a range and in close combat...

I dont know if someone already talked about it but i´ve heard that the dreadknight is not realy worth the points? I realy like the model and i wanna know if they actually are effective and if you take them in your list?

Maybe that or he might just be at loss at what army to play or were to start. :shock: Yes its annoying hes posting everywhere instead of simply on genral discussion forum, but i don't wanna yell at him he might be someone geuinely interested in the hobby and yelling at him might just discourage him. :( Simply don't give, help when he decides on a handfull of armies to ask for help with, but yes he hasposted on every army forum asking that. :D
