I've been awaiting the arrival of the Grey Knights with anticipation. Although I'm not really in a position to start up yet another army right now, I'd been looking forward to seeing what the new models were going to look like. I had heard rumors that the new Dreadknight was "hideous", but it was hard to tell from the one blurry image we got. Then I got the standard press release e-mail from GW.
My initial response to this was...eh.
Nothing really to write home about here, either.
Or here. Although I have to stay this obsession with really wide stances for terminators lately to make them seem bigger is bordering on ridiculous. These guys are in serious danger of groin pulls...
But I wanted to see a little more detail so I went to check out GW's website.
This is a small image, but I like the sword on the Dreadknight a heck of a lot better than the hammer. And since the model's plastic, that's a big plus, so I'm already imagining all sorts of conversion work I could do on this guy to give him a really dynamic pose.
The Grey Knights themselves are pretty cool, and I like all the options that are available. The move to plastic is a good one.
Same goes for the terminators...
...which can get pretty complex.
I'm not all that impressed with Lord Kaldor Draigo though. I mean, the model has tons of great detail--the shield is amazing, but... I just think that in a horde of baroque Grey Knights, this guy just isn't going to stick out all that much.
In the end, I'm pretty impressed with the new offerings--I'm really tempted to pick up the Dreadknight at some point.
