1500 points Grey Knights Planetstrike- Attacker

Hi all,

OK, this list is designed to go with this article, to link up with some of the ideas in there.

Let's pick up on the idea of a rapid-assault Alpha Strike type force, using plenty of Elites. The point of this force will be to drop onto the table, assault straight away, then mop up whatever's left.

So who's going to lead this force? Well, let's have a Grand Master and a Librarian.

Grand Master: 2 Servo-Skulls, Rad Grenades, Psybolt Ammo
Librarian: Might of Titan, Vortex of Doom, Mastery 3

That gives us some fairly good utility characters. We still need some units to go with them, and really these guys would only wander around with Terminator support:

5 Terminators: Psycannon, Psybolt Ammo
5 Terminators: Psycannon, Psybolt Ammo

That doesn't leave alot for the rest of the army. Deep Striking units are going to be the focus here, so Interceptor squads are favourite:

5 Interceptors: Incinerator, 2 Daemon Hammers, Warding Stave
5 Interceptors: Incinerator, 2 Daemon Hammers, Warding Stave
5 Interceptors: Incinerator, 2 Daemon Hammers, Warding Stave

All of which brings us up to 1490 points. 10 points to kill- give the Grand Master Meltabombs and Blind Grenades.

That's 1500 points!

So what's the plan? Well, depending on how many objectives the defender sets up, one Strategem should definitely be Gremlin Curse (unless there are no Fortresses/Bunkers, in Which case go with Dawn Assault), and Phase-Field Generator a close second. The Librarian and Grand Master are the bunker-breakers, and Hammerhand will probably come in useful. For those bunkers that can't be broken, use the Incinerators to do D6 flamer hits on the units inside.

Everything in the list can assault on the turn it comes down, and with wise selection of Landing Zone will be in range of the Servo Skulls. It's a "shock and awe" list- arrive, murder the enemy, cook supper using their slowly cremating remains.

Comments, as always, are welcome.
