This week Lange and Nathan review the kinda newly released Grey Knights codex for WarHammer 40K. Will this new codex stand up without the additions of inquisition options? How has this new book balanced the once top tier incarnation? Also, we talk about ninjas in model of the week. Something shiny brings you a load of Doctor Who conversations. Listen and Enjoy!

Without a doubt it has to be the Sisters of Battle! The background story on them is one of the most creative in the grimdark, and who doesn’t love the idea of an all chick army? If only the geniuses over at GW would recognize this and grace us with some plastic models so I don’t have to sell a kidney to build this army!
You should yell ‘StanLee!’ when you win Marvel dicks.
Sanctuary grants a 4++ save and characters don’t come automatically with precision in 7th edition.
Sisters of Battle definitely. They are something fresh and different in the 40k universe and a rare example of women depicted well in wargaming. That is they are actually sensibly clothed!
I also love the fact that the fluff reason behind them being half decent on the battlefield is down to their faith. Thats a much deeper philosophical idea than we normally get in our games. Yes the space marines are dedicated and loyal etc but the sisters have such a strong faith it confers a saving throw! Thats an extreme example of positive mental attitude and I love it.
The fact that Ganes Workshop haven’t released a plastic kit of sisters yet just proves to me how disconnected they are from their fanbase and how generally short sighted they are.
I realise this is a second comment but I wanted to make sure this point woukd stand out.
You described the Grey Knight codex as ‘half assed’ well I am sorry to say but I felt your review was also ‘half assed’. I have been waiting for the Grey Knight codex to be released prior to finally getting my own 40k Space Marine army. I like the fluff behind Grey Knights and I am temoted by them however I want to know how they play under their new rules.
You two guys have great knowledge and experience of GW gaming and have the skills to really x-ray a codex. I know because I have listened to all your reviews and learned a lot.
I was hoping for a similar depth of analysis to this codex that you gave the Dark Angels or Imperial Guard and felt let down by you skipping through this with little real effort.
Maybe your army build episode will fill in the gaps. Just remember some of us listening don’t have the previous codexes or rules so if you say ‘this unit is just like last time, nothings changed’ that doesn’t actually help much. If you feel you have to say that then perhaps you could add a sentance or two about what the unit can still do or be used for on the battlefield.
Love the show, I even listen when you review games I don’t care about, just felt the need to share my feelings on this episode.
Get yourselves to Britain and I’ll buy you some drinks to show no hard feelings!
Yeah, Characters no longer automatically have Precision Shots – important to remember!
