Ok initial thoughts. People that said the book sounds boring are full of it. It's a very decent codex with a bunch of different army combinations possible. The first thing that pops into mind when I read some of the entries was " this is op." Then you see how much it costs and it really isn't so. GK can soundly beat anything in cc and have enough things in the book that REMOVE MODELS FROM PLAY. Enough to make the swarmlord think twice about coming out to play. Their long range game is lacking, but once again they have things built in to get in peoples face very quick. Think decent of angles combined with homming beacon army wide. Yeah its as stupid as it sounds. GKT are wrecking machines but they made them non fearless leadership 9. I could go on and on about the army, but it IS a balanced book from what I can see this far.

Oh and my favorite part, the book has enough character assassination in it so there are ways of taking care of psychic hoods and runes of warding. Overall a nice book that I'd like to put something together for in the future, but I don't see an immediate tournament winner. Not yet any ways.....

Swarm armies? Doubt it. GK have the ability to take good templates in every slot.

It seems to be a really low model count army other than henchmen. So I am sure a lot of lucky long range shots can take care of it. For cc armies, swarming them and getting the charge off should hurt them as well. We will see I guess. Anyone starting them?

Daemons are a bit too expensive to swarm - though I do have the models!
Bugs or Orks - with massive numbers on the ground.

Hmm, gonna try a killa kan wall list maybe? 30x lootas, 15x deffkoptas, 9x kans, and the rest is foot slogging orks. Hmm.

Hq- shokk attack gun big mek
Hq- kff big mek
Fast- 9x defkoptas
Heavy- 9x grotzooka kans
Elite- 30x lootas in squads of ten
Troops- 2x 30x boyz squads

This could do the trick, actually any army I truly believe can handle any army. Except wave serpent spam and fire dragons.

Really? I dunno man. Have you ever played Necrons Vs Land Raider spam? PoTMS means it's rare you can glance them quiet, and god knows you won't be wrecking them. Assault termies eat you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Of all the matchups I've ever played, that one I never figured out what I could possibly even do, as plinking it at range meant I kept losing guys and getting close meant face full of thunderhammer.

I have with necrons. Massed warriors did their job glancing stuff. My death star was 6x wraiths with destroyer lord. Massed high initiative attacks and the no-save warscyth would wipe termies with a little luck. More tha five would suck, but that's a rarity. I know you run destroyer spam and that makes it harder to deal with things trying to hit your meaty troops in cc. They can still win; uphill battle but possible.

Just read through the codex.

I'm actually a little peeved - almost all the Witch Hunters non-SoB stuff is in there. I hope the eventual sisters codex has them too.

Otherwise, I see myself buying the codex just to field a non-GK GK army, heh.

No. It's soft and slightly overpriced at 30.
