Kill Team Grey Knights vs Scouts

So many games of Kill Team over the last few weeks, trying out new forces and working through the scenarios.

Mr Steinberg wanted to try out a predominantly Scout force with a couple a single Primaris Marines.

My Grey Knights had to advance across the combat zone into the waiting Scout snipers and various Scout weapons fire.

The objectives were scattered on differents levels, so forces had to be divided leaving lone models vulnerable.

Sometimes you just have to rely on the excellent armour of Space Marines and just take the hits, after all, reaching the objectives is what wins the game.

With the Scouts having taken up a defensive position, the Grey Knights moved and once within 12″ the Rapid Fire of their Storm Bolters proved very effective.

The Psychic phase is great for the Grey Knights, almost a free Mortal Wound dished out every turn. It did not take long before a few of the Scouts were out of action.

With only five models, any losses on the Grey Knight side hurts a lot, so once they were close enough, it was important to get close to the objectives and try to benefit from some obscuring terrain.

Finally Off The Table

So after the block painting comes the ink.

I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.

This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!

Forge World Dread

This is another model that has been in the Loft Full Of lead for ages, when I say ages, I mean years and years. I think this was the first Contemptor Class Dreadnought released by Forge World.

I have magnetized the weapon mounts so there is plenty of scope for weapon combinations using the three I have and possibly adding more in the future.

I really like the model, but having it for years, I was not sure how to paint it, Blood Angels red or perhaps a gun metal and silver finish. I already have four Blood Angels Dreadnoughts so did not really need another. So I went down the metallic route as a Dreadnought for the Grey Knights.

Grey Knights Proxy

I ordered a few models from Wargame Exclusive a couple of weeks ago after spending a week or so drooling over the eye candy on their website. They have now arrived and I have been distracted from the current project.

There are several models I like the look of on their website, one of which was an alternative Space Marine character that I fancied using as a Grey Knights model.

The casting is just fantastic with only a little cleanup worked required. There are several very small bits, I thought I lost one bit when I was washing it, but they all seem to be there. I am not sure where some of the very small bits go, I may leave some off.
When he is done, he should look like this…

Wargame Exclusive are base in the Ukraine with an expanding range of really nice models. Shipping is reasonable at a flat €4 rate across Europe.
