Grey Knight Terminator with Psycannon and Force Sword

Grey Knight Terminator with Psycannon and Force Sword

So, I’m likely getting back into Warhammer 40k after a departure measured in decades – and I’ve decided to go with Grey Knights as they seem to be the favored army right now.  I used to play Eldar (long before ‘Dark Eldar’ or Tau or Necron were things) but the old models are at my mum’s house and I was never any good with them anyway.  Can’t remember ever winning a game, actually…

Hanging string kokedamas, or moss ball bonsai
