Here we have pictured the brand new Grey Knight Dreadknight Model, which is SUPER BADASS, AM I RIGHT?
Hero of the Imperium right there.
Also, just going to go ahead and call it on the PSYFLEMAN DREAD being a mainstay in army lists after the Infant Transporter of Doom (ITD). Not mine, mind you, but, definitely in a lot of them ... reinforced aegis for GK gunlines + quad twin-linked s8 shots / turn on a non-shake/stunnable platform.
I think the GK codex is going to be really good and really bad. First, the ability to affordably spam 70+ S7 rending shots with good range per turn in a meta-bucking mostly foot army is ... well, going to be problematic for a lot of basic players for a while.
I think it will have a ton of builds, and that's a good thing ... there won't be a "this is the best" and there won't be just a smallish handful. I also think it will be somewhat easy to build a competitive enough build ... there will be a lot of armchair generals and commenters who suddenly think much more highly of their abilities ... and that's fine. Also, psyspam will prove problematic for "pure" MSU armies that rely on cheaped out shooty transports and platforms (like razorback spam). Psy defense becomes a bigger deal, but not THAT big a deal ... it's more that if you have really strong psy defense and can keep it alive, GK are going to freaking hate you.
In other news, Blood of Kittens posted up about the winner of the St. Valentine's Massacre, and basically went on a mini-rant since it was Guard, suggesting the list probably had all the "standard" Guard list inclusions, and was a big yawner, yatta yatta.
What is the problem with people these days in this hobby? That approach to just starting off with antagonistic and negative viewpoints still resides, and I swear it's getting old. Why not just congratulate the winners and say good show on an event that was well-received by those who attended? Why the need to editorialize with bullshit presuming it was a "boring" list and implicitly condemning the winner? It's that kind of needlessly negative crap that makes Tasty a hard person to trust with articles and data about your own events. It's that kind of needlessly negative crap that makes this hobby such a turn-off sometimes.
It's Ash Wednesday, and I'll be following last year by giving up booze outside of with meals (as I tend to prefer a beer or two with dinner to a coke or two with dinner, just for the taste), and never in great excess even at meals. Since I'm hardly a perfect Catholic, and just like last year, I'll be suspending this for Adepticon :)
