Grey Knight Summary

Hallo alle zusammen. Da der liebe Winnie im Moment für sein Geld wirklich mal arbeiten muss und bei mir dank Prüfungswochen die Zeit zu posten ebenfalls sehr gering ist springen wir ebenfalls auf den Grey Knight Train auf und präsentieren euch eine erste Einsicht in den neuen Codex. Natürlich wie immer alles ohne Gewähr, dafür aber mit ein paar vielversprechenden Details. Manches wird schon bekannt sein, anderes hoffentlich noch nicht. Wie hoch der Wahrheitsgehalt ist kann natürlich leider keiner wissen, aber ich denke schon das sich viele Sachen die wir da lesen auch im Codex wiederfinden werden, nicht zuletzt da ja die letzten Gerüchtesammlungen bei anderen Codizen stets recht akkurat waren! Aber lest selbst-"leider" ohne meine Kommentare dazu da ich leider echt keine Zeit hab im Moment :( Dafür gibts aber nächste Woche dann das große Salzburg Preview!

Special Rules
As it stands the Grey Knights lose Fearless and instead gain And They Shall Know No Fear and Combat Squads.

Each Grey Knight Squad will count as a psyker for the purpose of any special rules other armies might have. All units shall act in a similar manner to the Psyker Battle Squad in the Imperial Guard army list.

Any unit that wishes to deep strike may not do so within 6" of a Grey Knight squad.

Incinerators are template weapons with S5, AP4 and rending. They ignore both cover and invulnerable saves.

Psy-cannons are S7, AP4 with rending with different profiles for moving or staying still. They still ignore invulnerable saves.

Special Characters
Brother Captain Stern
Brother Captain Stern has stats equal to that of a Grey Knight Grand Master. He is equipped with a Storm Shield and a Nememis Forceweapon that inflicts Instant Death whilst he himself has Eternal Warrior.

He is allowed a Grey Knight Command Squad.

Rules wise he is said to lower the points cost of Grey Knight Terminators but this has yet to be clarified.

Torquemada Coteaz
Inquisitor Lord special character. Eqquiped with an Annointed Daemonhammer, Artificer Armour, Icon of the Just and Psyber Eagle.

Rules are pretty much as they are now except that he makes all Inquisitorial Henchmen troops instead of Elites.

Stats as they are now.
Is able to confer special abilities on D3 units per army which include master crafted weapons, digital weapons and a Grey Knight version of the wolf standard.

Assassin Kill Team
All Assassins are 1-3 per elites slot. They keep their current profile and all have a 4+ invulnerable save as well as Infiltrate, Move Through Cover and Stealth.

Vindicare has access to specialist ammunition in every turn of the game and can pick out which model is hit. Is great at taking out vehicles, characters, squad leaders and special/heavy weapon bearers. Ammo types are Hellfire (Auto-wound on a 2+), Turbo-pentrator (4D6 + Rending) and Shield Breaker (Any model wounded but not killed gets no benefit from invulnerable saves and looses their invulnerable save for the rest of the game if not killed)

Eversor is still the killing machine that is subject to Rage and Fleet with powerweapon attacks that automatically wound on a 4+ irrespective of toughness. Bio-meltdown rule is now reportedly a large template.

Culexus is extremely useful for killing psykers and daemons. The range of his aura is reportedly increased to 18” and his Animus Speculum has a number of shots equal the number of psykers in both armies within 12”.

Calidus is able to deploy in the same way as a lictor and can do D6 AP2 shots to a unit on the turn she appears before firing her neural shredder which is an AP3 template attack. Can force reportedly force D3 units to redeploy with the Word in Your Ear special rule.
