Hey guys, and gals for that matter.

I've decided after many mind games and "sleep on its" to go for a Purist Grey Knights army, with possibly an Inquisitor Lord attached (see forgeworld new stuff, Inquisitor Lok) to help acheive a central objective (which in my club, is to kill a particularly annoying chaos lord of the putrid filth of Nurgle, and destroy his little mutant making facility).

All fine and dandy, but here are my rules for it:

1. All models will be painted to my best possible standard (thats roughly a model every two weekdays, and one every day in the weekend). So we are looking at a squad a week:eek: . now we see the choice of grey knights is a wise one :cool:

2. I must update this project log with a post atleast every two days, to give you a real inside look at how I'm doing!

okay, thats fine...

3. The whole 1000pts army MUST be ready for a game with the member of this forum (brother_captain_eberus) at Aberdeen GW, if anyone wants to see the army, around the 18/19th august. Thats totally done, all basing, painting and varnishing. eek...

I will be posting up the army list later tonight, when I've finalised it, and worked out if this is doable!

Thanks, it was Deadlyheadly who really inspired this project, I love his Grey Knights

Anyway, a List, I know, very cheesed, but I think it is a fluffy list, the power armoured guys are there to secure the teleport zone, for the Inquisitor and Termies to come down, while the dreadnought stands there and looks badass!

Sounds like a good plan, hope it works out. I have a pure GK force aswel, the only advice that I can give is that you will ALWAYS be out-numbered, they are good fun to play with, and be careful with your initial deployment. Enjoy

I'm not sure if I would field the Term Retinue in 1k. Those points can be spent on a 2nd Dread firing platform and to bulk up the 2 troop units. It would work out the same price wise.

Unless, you purchased the models already and my advice is useless.

I'd rather have the Termi's over another Dread, especially if they Deep Strikewith the Grand Master.

I wouldn't really use that Inq-hes rubbish with just a power weapon and Str 3-for his cost you could get another GK and have spare points and the GK would be a lot more useful.Also the incinerators really limit a GK-he loses his storm bolter ,str6 and true grit just for a short ranged weapon that will probably only fire once.Just some ideas,anyway i'm looking forward to some pics :)

Hey guys, I purchased a box of Termies (grey knight ones, expensie B**ches)

I need some help on basing? As this will be a display army primarily, I would like some blingy bases, that I can make my self with plasticard and natural materials.

I think this is an oerall better list. With more grey knights (more to paint!, so what, the Forgeworld Inquisitor will have to wait.) I also think this list is more flexible.

I am also painting a grey knight terminator, and pics will follow shortly, but the camera is unaailable at this time.

Yeah, I'd like to get another dread, but I'm 13, without a job, and I cant really afford 2 Dreads, and where would I get the points from? Considering I've bought the termies!

Well, bad news, I'm going to be without a camera as the father goes away on his pushbik-for-lazy-people (my name for a motorbike). But atleast when he gets back, there will be a hell of a surprise in store for you guys!

New update on Brother Judas:

Looks good! I suggest washing the gold with some ink though (I use flesh wash over gold) to help define all the writing, but aside from that it's some good work. Looking forward to see the rest of the army once you're done. :)

What are your plans for making the dreadnought, by the way? Any converting to look forward too?

Not really, its going to be a forgeworld Mk4 dread, with brass etched symbols, expensive, but very much worth it.

Oh yeah, just for a note to all anti-imperials on medusa V veiwing this thread:

Medusa will not fall, not by my blessed soul, blessed armour, blessed Bolter and blessed force weapon. I have smote the daemons of chaos before, and I return, with the Emperor's will as my torch, to light the darkness, the unholy shroud over the earth of Medusa V, the earth that was claimed in the Emperor's name, and in my Brothers blood. We have lit our torches, our braziers, applied the holy litanies of faith to our armour, we, we Grey Knights of Titan, Torch of the Emperor, are the Aegis of Medusa V, as we stand, out silver armour glowing, just like our torches, in the chaotic dark, we will stand defiant, and all whom dissagree with that, shall feel the Emperor's wrath as our Nemesis Force Weapons, blessed at the base of the Holy Emperor's throne on Holy Terra, cut through their armour, purifying their traitorous soul. So citizens of Medusa V, cast out your traitorous fools, those underdogs who bow to the whim of the chaos gods, cast them out by the stake, and by the flame, the Emperor's has decided. The traitorous scum of the underdogs must die, they are the fools, not us, as we stand defiant, watching the burning of their bodies, we know, we assure, we guarantee! the Emperor, on his Holy Throne, on Holy Terra is watching over us, guiding us with his divine presence, do you chaotic fools not see his light? and see the entity delivering it, do you not see us, the Holy Grey Knights, standing over you, delivering the Holy Prayers of the Emperor, as you are immolated by Holy Flame. Forward to Medusa V my Brothers!
