New Warhammer 40,000 Grey Knights

The new Warhammer 40,000 Grey Knights have now been revealed, after passing a casual eye over the new models online I have come to the following opinions.

Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight

I really don’t know what I think of the Nemesis Dreadknight. One side of my brain insists it’s the coolest thing since sliced bread (you need to get out more – Ed) the other half thinks it just doesn’t look right… Could it be that it just looks too elegant, too manga, even for the Grey Knights?

Assuming you agree with the less negative side of my brain you can pre-order the Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight here at 20% off*: Grey Knight Nemesis Dreadknight

Grey Knight Terminators

The miniatures from the new Grey Knight Terminators new plastic boxed set look very similar to the old metal miniatures, which is a good thing as they’ve always looked great and they should fit into existing armies nicely. Reading through the box contents it looks like there are a good number of options, including some not available previously. Click here for a pic.

Grey Knights

Pretty much the same situation as with the Terminators; very similar to the old models but with some new options. Click here for pics.

Lord Kaldor Draigo

A nice looking Grey Knight character. Really great looking shield and standard on this chap, the shield in particular looks amazing, just dripping with Grey Knight text and iconography. Click here for pics.

    Oh I’m so happy, we’ve DH (now GK I suppose) players been waiting a long time for this.

    On the whole I’m liking the new stuff, I have to disagree with you on the Dreadknight, I think it should have been even sleeker (without those huge pistons over the arms), but overall I like it.

    It’s great that the old metals don’t seem to have become obsolete, indeed it looks like they’re still listing the metal Psycannon and Incinerator models on the GW site.

    I just can’t wait to get my hands on the book and start building some models.

      I like the pistons but they are out of character, they certainly add to the exaggerated manga feel of the model and it would probably look better without them.

    I don’t like what they did with Storm bolter, it looks not like Storm bolter from metal models it is worse. They’ve got great models of Storm bolters and I ask myself what went wrong 🙁

      I can see what you mean Casper. The magazines on the new models don’t look entirely right, they do stick out a bit.

      Nothing a bit of conversion work can’t fix however and as the rest of the models look good I don’t feel it’s the end of the world

      That said converting every storm bolter in an army is a bit of a pain….

    At the points per model, it’s not that much of a pain unless you’re building an army for Apocalypse 😀

    But I agree that I prefer the older style more, being in the office, I can’t go and check whether they had a belt feed or just a smaller magazine stock.
