Hey there, first post here.

I've recently put together all my Grey Knights into a 'Daemonhunters Apocalypse Task Force' meaning i added some cool shit, a few fluffy squads and powers etc and I've got about a thousand points left to play with after it all.

I've at the moment got
-3, 5 man Terminator squads with Grand Master's
-4, 5 man PAGK squads with Brother Captain's instead of Justicars
-1, Chaplain Assault squad (1 Chap, 4 Brother Captain's)
-1, GM Dreadnaught, T/L Lascannons
-1, Shadowsword
-About 800 points of somewhat chaosy anti infantry stuff

So with 1000 points left what should i add?

I made myself a 12 page Codex last night and it really showed me that anti armour is lacking WAY too much.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

i had the same problem with Gk, If i was you i would consider bringing in some IG with some heavy weapons under the command squad and Leman Russ vanqs, a few more dreads with TLLC and ML. maybe even a LR

Something about land raiders just annoys me and the 2k of guard i have, although suiting for the role just doesn't fill that empty spot.

I just bought 2 Razorbacks + 2 Predator Weapon sprues from BitzBarn so hopefully I'll be able to make some nice mobile gun platforms out of that.

Looks like the job goes to my Guard till then..

I was in the same boat when it came to fielding my Pure GK in Apoc games, but 'pure' lists always have trouble dealing with armour. I have 3K of GK(T) and use 2K of IG for my anti-tank and for a source of large pie-plates for anti-infantry.

IG is a natural choice for filling such gaps.

If you want pure GK...bring as many anti tank dreads as you can. I think depending on how you had them either with TTLC and ML or MM and DCCW, you could bring 6 or 7. And the blackreach dreads you can find cheap. In Apoc, people have better things to shoot at then a dread in cover.

I'm making myself a Custom Super-Heavy which should suit the role nicely, adding ~ 600 points in. Might grab a couple more dreads too just to fill in those last 400 or so points.

Cheers.

A mate of mine has a custom baneblade...it's for his Inquisitor so is suitably blinged up. The Sponson Lascannons are replaced with the FW psycannon piece - looks really cool.

Four Land Raiders? That would be kick ass, high armor value vehicles, from which you can assault!

I've already got a Stormlord/Shadowsword and a WHOLE bunch of time on my hands so I'm thinking of going a new direction with my next Super-Heavy. Something lower profile, maybe even train-like in length and function without lacking in the firepower and armour. None of the Big guns though, just LC's HB's and some other little random ones.

ALSO: Is there a place where i can find all the abbreviations this site uses? LC HB PAGK etc..?

Cheers in advance.

Some of the abbreviations, like the ones you just listed...if you place your cursor over them a 'drop down' pops up with what they mean - try it.

There may be a Thread on here with the most common ones, nut I just figured them out for myself...eventually:grin:

Details for my new SHV confirmed.

Will be somewhat based on two/three rhino chassis, end to end.

Will boast 2 TLLC, 2 TLHB, 4 LC, 4 HB, 2 ML, 2 SB and MAYBE a Mounted Basilisk on the top.

Rather stuck with names for the sorry thing though, well not name, but vehicle type.

Opinions on it?

hehehe 1000 points, getting guard allies is a great way to get fairly cheap anti-armor. Heavy weapon squads, Leman Russes, Artillery, Vendettas are all great ways to get good anti-armor. You might want to look into the steel eagle datasheet in the WD along with the apocalypse flyer valkyie/vendetta formation.
