Hi, i am looking at making a somewhat all round grey knight army. But had a few questions.

The list i am thinking of is a believe quite standard.

Grey Knights

Lib - lvl3, hammer.

2 x 5 strike team - 1 incin rest sword

Draigo


Space Marines

Lysander or Tiggy not quite sure yet.
Lysander is more about attacking etc and Tiggy is more defensive, is that right?

1 x 5 man scout

4 x centuarian devastators - crag


Now my questions.
2 or 3 NDKs, would trading a NDK for a thunderfire cannon be worth it? Do the cannons prove to be any good?

Should the lib have a rune? What tends to be the better 1? I dont quite understand what each one does.

Would taking paladins be worth it?

Any thoughts are welcome please

I am assuming that you're trying to put together what's called a 'Draigostar' using this army.

The general premise is that you start with one REALLY tough squad as your core. a lot of people use Centurions (looks like you went that way), but some people will use GK Paladins.

Then you add special characters to it. Draigo because he has a storm shield, and guarantees your army gets Gate (which lets you move your squad around the field as you want). Brother Captain Stern shows up a lot because he guarantees Sanctuary. You could add Tigirius and use him as your warlord, and once per game your Centurions could rend with his warlord trait, and you could also use him for decent psychic powers; usually people would roll on Telepathy, to try and get Invisibility to make the giant squad harder to kill.

Hm ok. Sounds good.

Yeah i liked draigo because of the gateing. Gives better movement around board.

Thank you for your comments, could imagine draigo +stern would be nasty, that makes draigo 2+/2++?

Any thoughts on a thundefire cannon, does it provide any good support? Or is it quite lack luster?
