Grey Knights Strike Squads are a crucial part of a strike force and often lead the way into battle. These veterans are equipped with lighter armor compared to Terminator Squads and are capable of moving quickly and efficiently, able to slip through gaps in the enemy line. A Grey Knights commander will typically deploy one or more Strike Squads to capture important locations and objectives at the start of a battle. They can even be deployed via fixed teleporters, allowing them to quickly seize isolated or hard-to-reach areas.
Without Strike Squads reconnaissance and preparation, Terminator Squads would be rendered ineffective. The Strike Squads role is essential to the success of the Grey Knights mission.
This ten-model kit features Grey Knights with Nemesis force swords, including a Justicar who can be built to lead the unit. Each model is intricately detailed with inscriptions, purity seals, and other hallmark features of this elite army. The Justicar boasts a unique helmetless head.
The kit also includes an assortment of weaponry and unit upgrades to help players customize their Strike Squads. Nemesis falchions, Nemesis force halberds, a Nemesis Daemon hammer, a Nemesis warding stave, two psycannons, a psilencer, and an incinerator are just some of the options available.

How to paint the Grey Knights Strike Squad set
- Step 1: Clean and prime your miniatures
Clean your miniatures with soap and water to remove any mold release residue and let them dry. Once dry, apply a primer to help the paint adhere to the surface. Citadel’s Chaos Black spray primer is a good option.
- Step 2: Paint the base colors
Paint the base colors using thin layers of paint to avoid clogging up the details. For the Grey Knights armor, base coat with Celestra Grey, then shade with Nuln Oil. Follow up with a layer of Ulthuan Grey, and finally, highlight with White Scar. For the weapons, base coat with Leadbelcher, then shade with Nuln Oil. Highlight with Ironbreaker.
- Step 3: Paint the details
Paint the details using a smaller brush for better control. For the eyes, use Baharroth Blue. Use Zandri Dust for the cloth elements and Khorne Red for gun details. For the gold accents, base coat with Retributor Armour, shade with Reikland Fleshshade, and highlight with Liberator Gold.
- Step 4: Apply washes
Apply washes to the miniatures to add depth and shadow. Nuln Oil is a good wash for the silver and grey parts, while Agrax Earthshade works well for the gold accents.
- Step 5: Add finishing touches
Add finishing touches, such as painting the base with Astrogranite Debris, adding highlights to the eyes with White Scar. Once you’re done with painting, apply Ardcoat to the miniatures to add a glossy finish to your miniatures and safeguard them.
