Though the common folk of the Imperium will never know of their sacrifice and courage, it is only by their hand that the untold perils of the warp are kept at bay. Every Grey Knight has been subjected to an intensive regime of hypno-indoctrination and spiritual fortification, so that they may stand unafraid before the horrors of the warp.
Grey Knights are implacable foes of all things daemonic, their doctrines and weapons honed to the slaughter of warpspawn. Employing ancient tomes and reams of arcane lore, the Grey Knights perform sacred rituals that sever the bonds holding Daemons to the material plane, banishing them to the roiling hellscape from whence they came. Teleportation assaults are a favoured tactic of the Grey Knights. The Adeptus Astartes are elite shock troops who strike with the fury of a thunderbolt.
Few opponents can withstand this onslaught. The Grey Knights wield the warp as a powerful weapon, their purity of soul protecting them from the foul depredations that would strike down lesser men. Clad in warded armour and engaged in gestalt psychic communion, an army of Grey Knights is girded well against the powers of the warp.
Strike Squads and Terminator Squads form the backbone of many Grey Knights armies, and it is their duty to control vital objectives. These help to reflect the unique tactics and strategies used by the Grey Knights on the battlefield. The gestalt psychic consciousness of Grey Knights allows them to react to changing battlefield circumstances almost instantly.
Grey Knights vehicles incorporate hexagrammatic runes, litanies of purity, strands of sanctified silver and other sacred wards. A Grey Knight knows that his service to Humanity will likely end in his bloody death.
He knows too the importance of ensuring that his final moments cost the enemy dear. They are living legends, whose mere presence inspires their battle-brothers to great deeds.
The Grey Knights watch from orbit for the perfect moment to strike. Their teleportarium chambers pierce the roiling warp to deliver battle-brothers deep into the heart of the enemy army. Such is the mental discipline of the Grey Knights that even the lowest of their rank can wield the energies of the warp as a weapon.
In the midst of a clangorous firefight a battle-brother can shut out all external stimulus, ignoring pain and fear to focus his mind into a reaping blade for the Emperor. By attuning his mind with those of his fellow battle-brothers, a single Grey Knight can bolster his reserve of mental energy and bring his psychic might to bear repeatedly against the enemy or in aid of his allies.
Like a cleansing fire, a squad of Interceptors can sweep across an entire battlefield. Upon induction into the Chapter, every Grey Knight is trained to steel himself against psychic assaults.
Wise is the battle-brother who consults the Prognosticars and notes the hour when his mettle will be tested. When needs must, the Grey Knights can call down the awesome firepower of their orbital strike cruisers. A blinding column of energy lances down from the heavens, burning flesh to ash and reducing metal to heaps of molten slag. By entreating the machine spirit of his weapon with psychic incantations, a battle-brother can infuse the already deadly payload with explosive mental energy.
It is in the darkest times that the disciplined fury of the Grey Knights burns its brightest. These reflect the unique strategies used by the Grey Knights on the battlefield. Space Marines have reserves of willpower that allow them to fight through even the most grievous of wounds. Forged through a pilgrimage of fire, each Paladin is a formidable martial force even to their last breath.
Vengeful machine spirits can wreak havoc on the enemy in their death throes, even as their systems fail. The Dreadknight charges forward with full fury. The Grey Knights can strike with incredible precision. Together the Grey Knights can bring down any foe. When the fighting is at its fiercest, Grey Knights Terminators fight with even greater fury.
Warriors of the Grey Knights are masters of the arcane. The Dreadnought fights on regardless of the damage he has sustained, so determined is he to do his duty.
Arcane power swells within the sons of Titan. Terminators stand firm against torrents of enemy fire. A measured advance allows the Grey Knights to unleash a steady stream of bolter fire. Utterly incorruptible, the warriors of the Purifier order stand strong, even in the face of the darkest evils. The gift of warp-sight aids those with the will to see. Each Grey Knight is an accomplished psyker, trained to channel his mental energies into protective wards and an array of battle-sorceries.
The mightiest Grey Knights of all can banish Daemons with but a touch, conjure psychic defences to protect their allies and unleash the destructive power of the warp itself upon their foes.

Warhammer 40,000/Tactics/Grey Knights(8E)
Their all-consuming mission is to confront the Daemons of the Warp wheresoever they might manifest. When the Chapter fights as one there are few who can oppose them. Yet, as the Imperium approaches its twilight, the daemonic threat grows ever greater and the Grey Knights ever more beset. Though the Grey Knights wield the finest armaments that the armouries of the Imperium can provide, their chief weapon comes from within: a psychic might that can cleave through armour, summon sanctifying flame or return life to the dead. Terminator Squads, the elite of other Space Marine armies, are the mainstay of your force. Purgation Squads lay down a storm of heavy weapons fire, Purifiers immolate the foe with azure flame.

But greater even than these, we carry the light of the divine Emperor of Man into the dark places to purge the daemonic wherever it may be found. The Grey Knights are a secret, mysterious Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines specifically tasked with combating the dangerous daemonic entities of the Warp and all those who wield the corrupt power of the Chaos Gods. They have the honour of being implanted with gene-seed engineered directly from the genome of the Emperor Himself. The Grey Knights act as the military arm or Chamber Militant of the Ordo Malleus , the Daemonhunters who form the oldest branch of the virtually omnipotent Inquisition.
