Icon 1750 point counts-as grey knights army list. comments and criticim's apprechiated.

well ive recently returned to the hobby after a 2 year exile and found myself picking up grey knights (not only because i can/have salvaged some models from previous armies but because i like the fluffy concept i have in mind for it....)

(im not to sure on if points values for wargear are legal to post on forums so ill leave them out incase.)

Lord kaldor draigo
:Take paladin squads as troops.

Brotherhood champion
psybolt ammunition
Digital weapons

HQ total :385 points

(paladin squads can be taken as troops due to draigo's special rule.)
6 x paladins:
apothecaries' narthecium
psybolt ammunition
1 nemesis force halbeard (apothecary) - free
5 (with nemesis force words) making nemesis force swords
and stormbolters master-crafted
apothecary's nemesis force halbeard
total for squad : 475 points

Paladin squad 2
6 x paladins
psybolt ammunition
4 nemesis force halberd
1 deamon hammer
1 nemesis force sword
all weapons master crafted
total for squad : 435 points

Grey knight strike squad
3 additional grey knights
3 nemesis force swords
3 nemesis force halberds
nemesis deamon hammer
psybolt ammunition
justicar - both storm bolter and nemesis force sword master-crafted
Total for squad : 235 points

total for troops : 1145 points

twin linked las-cannon

twin linked las-cannon

twin linked assualt cannon
psybolt ammunition

Razorback :
twin linked assualt cannon
psybolt ammunition

total for transports- 345 points

Heavy support

Landraider : 255 points
psybolt ammunition

total : 1750 points

now the plan for the list is to have the squads as anti infantry/objective takers while the tanks provide anti vehicle firepower and act as a distraction for the enemies fire.

comments and criticims would be apprechiated.

A few points to consider:
Apothecaries are not worth their points. Drop them and get more troops or weapons.
Swords are not especially useful on non-Terminators, as they only get the benefit of the special rule if they already have an Invulnerable save.
Razorbacks are "Dedicated Transports" and can only be taken as squad upgrades. You only have one squad that can take one (Paladin's don't have the option to take Razorbacks), so you can only take one in the army unless you have more squads with them as an upgrade option (Purifier, Purgation or Strike squads).
Unfortunately there aren't many options for anti-vehicle ranged weaponry platforms in the Grey Knights. Your best bet would be Dreadnoughts, though they're obviously more expensive than Razorbacks. The Psyrifleman (Dread with two T/L Autocannons and Psybolt Ammo) is a popular choice. Lascannon and Missile Launcher is also good for anti-vehicle.

Check out my Codex: Scions of Slaanesh (Grey Knights complete rewrite)

And my Necromunda Escher gang project log (with lots of pictures)

In our embrace of the pleasures of the flesh we feel the embrace of the Dark Prince
She asks nothing of us but to enjoy life, and in doing so we bring glory to Him
Give up your petty faiths and morals and join us in the bosom of the Goddess of Pleasure
