My Grey Knights army is really a one trick pony and it’s meant to play out at 1,500 points. My whole point of picking up the GK was not to really collect another army but to have a small force that I could play from time to time and use some of the odd minis I have collected over time as henchmen and do some conversions for vehicles. Conversions are my favorite part of the hobby.
This is my current 1500 point list
Henchmen Squad: 6 Psykers, 2 Jakero, 2 Servitors w/plasma cannons. Chimera
Henchmen Squad: 3 Warrior acolytes w/Razorback Psybolt
Henchmen Squad:5DKA, 4 Demonhosts Chimera
10 Teminators w/Banner 2 Psycannons
Librarian: w/ Shrouding, Summoning, Might of Titan and Warp Rift.
Techmarine Rad and Psy Grenades 3 servoskulls
That’s around 1500 points give or take. Strategy: get to center board pop smoke and shroud. Weather shooting phase summon terminators and assault with DKA and Demon-hosts. The Librarian or the Techmarine will be with that squad to tip them into T4 and give them hammer hand or grenades. With 2 fire teams (Coteaz and the Dread), and a mobile scoring unit running around to take objectives.
So that was my idealistic side at work. Now the cold hard reality is kicking in. Now that I am playing this army at several different point increments and losing or drawing because my build does not scale well. My intention was only to play 1,500 point games and I could have just played my Orks which I own pretty much everything for in bulk. Now I am on the edge looking down into a sea of sprues and plastic glue fumes rolling back at me. Visions of Storm Turkeys and Land Raiders haunt me.
This is leading me to rationalizing my hoarding addiction. I have decided that if I am going to get a Storm Turkey. Because I neeeeeeeeed one. I will sell my mostly unopened fantasy Dwarf army. I feel that this is a good trade. Unopened probably means I will never play them and the reality is I will end up with a Storm Turkey or Land Raider soon enough.
- So internet what should it be Storm Raven or Land Raider?
- Am I just making deals with myself to hide my addiction?
- What is the fair market value of Dwarf High King Thorgrim and The Throne of Power?
