Default 2nd try at 2k list

Seeing as how my crowe purifier list got into deep trouble fast I'm trying new things so let me know what you think of the list.

GrandMaster
Rad grenades
3 servo skulls

10 purifiers
4 psycannons

Venerable deadnought
Assault cannon
autocannon
psybolts

Vindicare assassin


10 terminators
2 psycannons
5 daemonhammers
3 halberds
2 swords

5 terminators
1 psycannon
3 daemonhammers
2 swords


Dreadnought
T.L autocannons
psybolts

5 Purgators
4 psycannons

5 purgators
4psycannons

in objective games I can combat squad the termis and use grand strategy to make some troops.
GM will go with 5 man squad.
Think i'll just run them up most of the time.

pretty straight forward so what do you think?

I am the greatest that humanity has to offer, and the lowest.

The terminators are unnecessarily slow. All termis have force swords and 2 attacks. Therefore they need to go last and possibly die before attacking? Demon Hammers are great but they are not necessary, especially in that great numbers. Half a squad does not need them. Replace the hammers with a brotherhood banner psibolt ammo and give everyone you can afford halberds. 2 attacks normally per termi at i6 is fearsome, especially if they are power weapons and every wound kills a model no matter how powerfull with 2 exceptions. 1)EW 2)invulnerable saves, although these can fail easily too.
You also MIGHT want to ditch some purgators, you have too much heavy weapons.
One last thing, get transports. Unless its a small field you need transports. Alternatively you could get a librarian and deep strike and hope he doesnt die before summoning everyone, but this is a bit too dangerous. Deep strike and speed are grey knights greatest weapons. You could even do that with purgators and open fire behind lines b/c you can shoot after striking in.
Also (I forgot...) give purifiers halberds, even over termis b/c they only cost 2pts for the same thing, then go to termis with extras.

You can make mini Purg Squads by Combat Squading a 4x Psycannon Purifier Squads. Also if you grant them Scoring via Grand Strategy, you will get both to score. Grand Strategy is before deployment and Combat Squad is as you deploy.

I'm not bothered on speed with the Terminators

they are there to hold things and hit back with stop power.
4++ over I6 in this case as I need this unit to hold out against some brutal fire as much as possible.
plus hammers are well fun to use and hella scary for anyone coming near me.
high str weaponry is mah thang and im gonna swing at anything that moves

as for the purifiers combat squading

takes too much points doing it and astral aim is useful for me.

The 1+ to invul saves for the sword is only in close combat. They will still be 2+/5++ to enemy ranged attacks.
