There are lots of rumor compilations running around for the new upcoming Grey Knights codex. Apparently a lot of the rumors are very very similar, and going through them to find the differences and similarities is maddening. The latest talk pretty much just says that the rumors we have been reading are pretty much spot on.

Today we simply have Blood of Kittens confirming the rumors we all saw yesterday on BOLS. Any confirmation really tells us that we are starting to get a good idea of what can be seen in the upcoming codex.

The idea that the Grey Knights are subservient? Well, I have also read other say that they are equals in the upcoming codex. A little war with words, since I am sure Grey Knight  players don't really want to be the right hand of the Inquisition.

Here is what was posted earlier from Blood of Kittens.
"Going over the latest rumors on BoLS they are pretty spot on. Understand there will be a mixing of the orders. They go into detail about this in the fluff. If you see my batch of Rumors you will notice I mention that Grey Knights are (subservient) basically the special forces to the Inquisitors. I do believe though they keep the Inquisitors Xenos separate I cannot remember frankly. Their will be no Drop Pods that is what the Stormraven is for hehe.

Nothing really new beyond the subtle confirmation that everyone who is providing info seems to be looking at the same document.

Unit Notes
Grand Master Rumors
Pick D3 units during deployment and giving them a special rule:
Makes them scoring (kinda neat for dread and or elite paladins)
Makes them re roll 1s to wound all game
Makes them have counter attack USR.
Makes them Scout
All these units are affected by the one choice.
No Drop Pods

But GK strike squads are supposed to be able to take personal teleporters. This makes them jump infantry. And once per game it is rumored to allow them to make a 30" move, just move... not a on table deep strike. they Can shoot when they do this, but not charge.

Paladins: 2 wounded terminators (they can have an apothecary in the squad)

Purifiers: Grey Knights that have a lot of anti horde options, they are the ones with the power that will do a wound on every engaged enemy model in cc on 4+.

Terminators equipped with frag and krak grenades.

The Summoning: A single friendly unit that is anywhere on the table is placed within 6" of the librarian and counts as deepstriking.

Psychic Communion (Grandmaster and Captain only): Take a psychic test. If passed, you may modify any reserve rolls by + or -1.

Heroic Sacrafice (Champion only): During any assault phase and when the "chaplain" dies. If the psychic test is passed, make one attack against any one model that is in base to base with the champion. If the attack hits, the model is removed as a casualty with no saves. If it misses, there is no effect.

Cleansing Flame (Purifiers only): Start of any assault phase. All enemy models that are part of the same assault suffer a wound on a 4+ before any blows are struck with saving throws allowed. Casualties count towards combat resolution.

Astral Aim (Purgation Squad only): Shooting Phase. Unit and attached characters may fire at any unit in range and regardless of line of sight. Target automatically gets a 4+ cover save that cannot be modified.

  1. While not the player I once was I still purchase their models for other projects or just something to make and paint like that dreadnought, good information and a good blog.
