Death Guard vs Grey Knights & Inquisitors (2,000 pts)

IMG_4513.jpgThe Grey Knights are, apparently, not a top rated army.  I’ve seen it said that they’re the worst in 8th Edition 40k.  However, I find them a bit of a handful.  The mini smite that they can all do causes an automatic 3 Mortal Wounds to Daemons and with their Gates of Infinity psychic power you can’t pin down a big unit in melee combat, it’ll just be gated away to shoot you again.

Death Guard vs The Imperium (1805 pts)

The points limit for this game was meant to be 1,750 points.  But my opponent was trying out a new list and realised that he had built something that wasn’t battle forged.  So he threw a bit extra so as to make his list work, and I did the same.

The Imperium was mostly represented by Grey Knights, but there were also some Custodes, a couple of Inquisitors and some Scions (I think that’s what they were) that were being tested.
