Default First Army (EVER!) - Grey Knights

So this is my first every army. I had collected a couple of models about 10-12 years ago when I was a little kid but nothing ever came of it.
So Now I am back into it.

I have always had a bit of a soft spot for Grey Knights. I like the nobilty of them both in the way that they look and in the lore that surrounds them.

EDIT: All photso were taken by my iPhone 4s in a homemade Lightbox in a dark room with a cool white light.

The images below are of assembled but unpainted models. Two reasons for this.
1. I have yet to decide on my colour scheme (I swear this is the hardest part)
2. I am going to be getting some conversion work done by a local guy here in NZ


First Terminator Squad







My Psycannon Terminator has had both of his arms magnestised on. Below are images of what Ive done. I have used "Neodymium Magnet: D2x1mm. Qty160. N52. MICRO!"






2nd Terminator Squad

Just the Justicar at this point.
I have to admit I paid alot more attention to detail when I was assembling this guy. I added the extras.
There are still some small bits a pieces like the tiny heraldy shields to be added but they will get done during painting phase.







Below is just a picture of the home made Light box that I made.
Really easy to make just uses 5 pieces of A4 paper taped togeather.
They lamp that I use can be seen above it.
It is a magnifying desk that that has a energy effecient cool white bulb which gives a proper white light.




And now a pic of the bits I have yet to assemble.

3x Venerable Dreads (Because I perfer the way the model looks)
These Will be run as Psyflemen Dreads

1x Purifier Squad
1x LR Redeemer




Well that is all for now any critiques please fire them my way. i am new to this so help is always welcome.

Also any suggestiosn for paint schemes would be awesome.
I was pretty set on the standard colours untill i saw mad matts BT army and now I am not so sure lol.

Looking forward to seeing how this works out for you. You certainly planned ahead with your purchases with two of my favourite units, dreads and land raiders. I'm in the middle of painting up a redeemer myself.

A great start, keep up the good work and eagerly will follow your progress.

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

I think with the colour scheme could you go for a more plain grey, not such a large highlight with blue. You could then add some weathering the way that god does it. . . I mean Matt (I've been playing with his techniques for the last week and still nowhere near him )

I also have to agree with the LR being one of my favourite units in the game even if the thing never gets its points back because it saves double its points in drawing fire from other units.

PS the mold line police will get you if you don't get them off the staffs

Looking really good off the bat, can't wait to see what you do with them.

one thing that struck me the first time i looked at your second justicar.
how did he manage to cut the head off of a demon with a hammer?

Fuelled by the inner holy fire that all Grey Knights Posses the Justicar tore the head from the body of the demon with his bare hands, proudly he dispays it for all to see that the will power and the might of the Grey Knights is unwaivering.
