Well,

A little about myself - I've been playing Warhammer Fantasy for 15 years now and have some how been sucked into picking up a 1000pt 40k army. My best buddy has branched off into a space wolves army and was looking for someone to play. So I've decided to pick up a small force.

I picked Grey Knights based on the amazing metal models and the fact that I can field a small 1000pt army with relatively few models (nice and easy to paint up quick).

Here's my pathetic attempt at a fairly fluffy Grey Knight list - 1000pt Army.

Brother Captain
- Nemesis Force Weapon
- Psycannon

with 4 Grey Knight Terminators
- Psycannon
= 300pts

7 Grey Knights
- Justicar with targeter and frag grenades
- Incinerator
= 212 pts

7 Grey Knights
- Justicar with targeter and frag grenades
- Incinerator
= 212 pts

Grey Knight Dreadnought
- Twin Linked Lascannon
- Extra Armour
- Smoke Launchers
= 138pts

Grey Knight Dreadnought
- Twin Linked Lascannon
- Extra Armour
- Smoke Launchers
= 138pts
TOTAL POINTS = 1000pts

Overall the list is fairly fluffy and not overally competitive.

Suggestions on making it better?

What should I change?

Its a good looking list.
The only thing i would change is Terminators,I would add more but that is just me, like i would add 6 GKT's and not 4 and drop the troops down to 4 and not 7. but what is the game your playing?
If you playing a capture the flag or object then you need your troops,but if it is'nt like a deathmatch or kill the whole opponents army then you want more GKT.

If you're playing pure GK then it's difficult to get any big improvements on this list.
If you replaced the lascannons with autocannons and removed the smoke launchers you could fit a single extra Terminator into that retinue, although not really recommended if you face tanks often. It's up to you, personally I'd keep the lascannons.

Personally, I'd ditch the incinerators, targeters and and one psycannon then you'll have enough points for an extra Terminator. If you're getting up close and personal then an incinerator is only going to do much damage against weak squads/swarms or troops in cover. But your frag grenades and NFWs should be able to handle those just as adequately. They do have some benefit, but they're not as desirable as an extra Terminator, imo.
