Dreadknight

My Dreadknight is one of my favorite Grey Knight units. The way I arm him he’s expensive as hell, but it’s just so much fun! I run him with a Personal Teleporter, Heavy Incinerator, and a Nemesis Greatsword. Coming in at a hefty 250 points, my opponents have learned if they don’t bring him down ASAP he will ruin vehicles and elite units alike (the greatsword rerolls ensure it!). The only thing he struggles with is hordes – 20 boys or 20 gaunts (especially with poison) are a hard match up and if he manages to survive somehow he’s been tied down most of the battle. The personal teleporter is by far his most expensive upgrade, but I must say it’s not only incredibly fun to move him 12″ a turn, it’s an amazing tactical trick to have a ‘once per game’ 30″ teleport up your sleeve. Oh, and with a Grand Master he can become a troop!

Lastly, I want to mention the extensive conversion work on this model – You’ll notice he’s much more dynamically posed than the out-of-box GW model, something that was quite time consuming but I’m quite proud of!
