I haven't mentioned it yet on here, but I am starting Grey Knights. My Templars are finished essentially, as I have the painted models to make literally any build in the codex. I love Templars, but frankly, I'm tired of the 4th Edition book. Even post FAQ, I am just bored of making it work. I still plan on playing Templars at any tournaments I go to for the rest of the year since I know the book inside out, but I'll be working on Grey Knights in the meantime and hopefully the competitive builds will be fleshed out by the time I have working force.
So why GK and not something else? Tyranids have interested me for a long time, but starting a 2k-2.5k Nid force would be like $500 if I did it cheaply. But luckily I own all the Rhinos and Razorbacks and Dreadnoughts I could ever want. So all I need to actually buy are GK infantry. So starting them is cheap. The other reason is, the models are kick ass looking and relatively easy and fun to paint.
Remember a few weeks back when I showed the forgeworld auto-cannon arms? When I (like everyone else) realized how awesome psyfleman dreads are I caught all the inspiration I needed. Without further adieu, here are my assembled and painted GK psyflemen.
Pretty simple forumla I'll use for the rest of the army when I get it going. Dry brush boltgun metal, badab black wash, boltgun metal first highlight, mithral silver second highlight and skull white final highlight. I think they came out pretty good, I'm stoked for my GK's to come in and to brainstorm list ideas.
