As long as ToC is active, infantry psycannons do the best against units with: T6 Sv2+, T7 Sv2+/3+ and T8 Sv2+, compared to psybolt storm bolters and psilencers (without needing additional buffs). Note: Outside of Tide of Convergence, against anything with Toughness 5 or higher and a 3+ save -- e.g. Draigo is slightly better in combat due to his better AP and is better for your psychic economy (his 3++ means he does not need Sanctuary). Somewhat mitigated lascannons but few things take lascannons. And as if you are not annoying enough, Edict Imperator let you cosplay as those pointy ear with the shoot then move thing.

Either with 40 S6 AP-1 D2 shot, using Psybolt Ammunition and ToC, to 16 S8 AP-1 2D shot with just ToC on every squad of Paladin with psycannon, to 6 S5 AP0 D3+1D shot with the Psilencers (which is only 1 pts more on a Strike Squad member compare to normal Halberd + Bolter loadout) on ToC, they can provide you with very excellent dakka that can shred almost anything you set your sight on.

As for which power to give them, it's fairly close between Gate, Hammerhand, and Sanctuary. This can combo well with the relic Cuirass of Sacrifice, giving you the ability to shrug off those self-inflicted mortal wounds on rolls of a 5+. And if your opponent spends all their time trying to kill your paladins, they probably won't have much left for the rest of your army. Give it the nemesis Lord War Lord trait, since you can re-roll charges now. You only get a strong game against Daemons (Well, not so much anymore now that they got their codex. The skyhammer-Icarus combo makes this a fairly respectable Aircraft hunter, with the assault cannons throwing out enough lead to dink one or two wounds off the target. One thing to note with Sterns re-rolls --Your rerolls can only be used on Stern, while your opponent has no such limitation-- so even though you might dictate the kind of reroll your opponent will have more benefit off of it in most cases. This ability is actually stronger than you might think, specifically on paladins, due to the simple fact that there are very few 4/5 damage weapons. Hardest to pull off, as you need to spend 2 rounds in melee and the enemy has not withdrawn, killed you, or kill two much of the enemy. Those require a little practice if you're new to mixing paints and stuff, so best to practice on spare weapons you'll surely have after assembling a box of Knights. In normal games(well, that not true, you can take bare bone strike squads, purgators and inceptors and still have a little wiggle room for your elites. Since you can Teleport Strike 11 of those squads, your opponents will have to be careful to deny their backfield to you, or face 20+ MWs. As long as ToC is active, infantry psycannons do the best against units with: T6 Sv2+, T7 Sv2+/3+ and T8 Sv2+, compared to psybolt storm bolters and psilencers (without needing additional buffs). Note: Outside of Tide of Convergence, against anything with Toughness 5 or higher and a 3+ save -- e.g. Draigo is slightly better in combat due to his better AP and is better for your psychic economy (his 3++ means he does not need Sanctuary). Somewhat mitigated lascannons but few things take lascannons. And as if you are not annoying enough, Edict Imperator let you cosplay as those pointy ear with the shoot then move thing. Always take a non-unique warlord to give this to. There's the one that lets units in 6" re-roll charge rolls, but that's pretty much the only good one. As if the screen was never there: smite and kill away. Unfortunately, after 2018 BIG FAQ 2 this is no longer that great a boost. Secondly, new rules, strategems, powers and litanies offer us both tactical flexibility and increased pure power. Just assuming that you are able to just revive strike squads units(the WORST unit to do this to) Gk apothecary will already make close to half its points back over the game(17*4=68 at a 50% success rate=34) on top of having a great statline, and it only gets better the more expensive the unit is, heck even one good heal on Drago pretty much makes the whole cost up. Ritual of the Dammed and Chapter Approved 2019 brought great changes. However, with new powers and stratagems, you can greatly increase the durability of key units, especially units with Terminator keyword (so Paladins too). Best used on Grand Master Dreadknights or Warding Stave multi-model units wearing Terminator armour, for a 3++ on an already hard target. Additionally, Apothecaries are surprisingly effective in combat, hitting on 2+ with 4 attacks. The heavy incinerator has dropped to a respectable 19 points, the cheapest of the Dreadknight's special weapons now. Grey Knights will be including in the next Imperial Armour: Talons of the Emperor. against half of your normal targets(any T4, T7, and T8) all your getting is an additional -1 ap. Warlord traits are mediocre. Resulting in a net result of only +1 against FLYing units. Your main armament for Knights is a force (power weapons that deal D3d damage) each cost 1 point with the exception of two Falchions or the Daemonhammer. Chanting rites of banishment, the elite brotherhoods of the Grey Knights stride fearlessly into battle against the worst horrors of the galaxy. Great to use on Draigo or Crowe, making them a priority for your enemy to shift.
