Let's say you're using the either Dark Artisan or Grotesquire formation (or any similar army).

How would you use your multi-wound models against GKs - where everything has (or can have) instant death?

I would use them in a comical fashion. Perhaps grabbing them by each arm and wiggling them to make it appear as if they're dancing off the table jovially and leaping back into the case from whence they came.

Is Force still a psychic power? Does it still require activation every turn?

Have a Culexus assassin standing 7 inches behind your multiwound models Smile

Lock the door. And hope they don't have blasters.

I would throw all my dice at dispelling Force and hope for the best. I did actually come up against something similar a couple of weeks ago where a Chaos Sorceror with Force Axe and some Terminators piled into an ongoing fight between my Dark Artisans and some Necron Warriors (yes, I know!). Fortunately I got lucky and despite activating Force and hitting me 3 times the Sorceror still needed 5+ to wound and fluffed all 3 rolls. My Talos then kindly eviscerated him the following turn.

For the record, a chaos sorcerer with an axe would just be S5, so needing 6's against T7 Smile

Even better then! I'd have been really peeved if I'd found out now that he needed 6's and he'd killed my Dark Artisans on 5's! Very Happy

I'd definitely go the route of reserving denial dice for Force. I usually include a Farseer, which helps the odds.
