Farseer Council:

5-10 Farseers

Psychic Choir. As long as there are 3 members, they do not get Perils of the Warp on a double-6. If they roll double-1's they can either ignore the wound and fail the test, or take the wound and cast it. Special Power Warp Charge 3. Place a token within 24".

Grey Knight Apocalypse Formations

Brothers of the Flame:

Castellan Crowe (or any Castellan)
5 ten-man Purifier units with no dedicated transports

One model in the formation may make a special attack every Shooting Phase: Hellstorm template, Str 2 AP 6 Assault 1 and Psi-flame... The Str and AP both get 1 better for each unit from this formation within 12" of the model using this power.

Dreadknight Brethren:

3-5 Dreadknights

Pick one Dreadknights at the start of the game. That model and every Dreadknight within 12" gains Shred.

Extermination Force:

1 Dreadknight
3-5 Stormraven

The Dreadknight every turn can fire a special attack instead of shooting normally. 48" Str 7, AP 4 and the target is marked for the rest of the battle. From then on, all shots from the formation's Stormravens hit automatically. Yep. Also, against Daemons the mark halves their Toughness or Armor Value versus mindstrike missiles and psybolt ammunition.
