Hello i am very new i have not played a game of 40k but want to get in to the hobby and i want to play gray knights. i made a 500 list form what i have learn form videos on youtube and had a few questions

1. i cant seem to find a gray knight grand master model to buy. games workshop does not have one listed at all. would using a gray knight brother captain model be ok. or is that a taboo. do you have another suggestion for this.

2 i am not sure what rules books i need. i been using Wahapedia would it be taboo to use prints off the website instead of books. also i have learned what battle scribe is and used to try to play around with list building.

i have not bought any models yet just trying to make sure correctly and avoid a costly mistake. thanks for you help in advance

Sounds like a decent list for all intents and purposes. however, consider how you would cope with armies that are gun-heavy. I am thinking Tau, they will try and neuter your list before you get into combat, or Drukhari (the new hotness) who will scream and shout across the board taking objectives and trying to circumvent your defences.

As for model ideas, depends on your loadout. As a base for your grand master, Voldus is a good shout. Armed with a storm bolter and daemon hammer you can change his head and use some parts from the Paladin squad or the brother captain model. I am not including possible third party model pieces, for example if you want the model to have bionic limbs.

If you want the force halberd then the paladin squad for spares is a good choice. Then add whatever spare pieces you have to make him more menacing.

hope it helps
