So looks like someone over at 4Chan started posting images from the Grey Knights codex. It then only took a few minutes for threads to pop up on Warseer, DakkaDakka, Bolter and Chainsword and BoLS. 

I have taken the time to condense them into one uber leak, I want to remind people though that there is a VERY SLIM chance people are pulling the wool over on everyone, but from the looks of how mild the rules are, I am pretty sure everything is legit.

Here are a few summaries.

Army wide Special rules:
Aegis: a unit that contains at least one model with this special rule re-rolls all rolls of 1 on deny the witch rolls.

spiritual purity: cannot use malefic daemonology. only perils on double 6's when casting sanctic.

Combat squads

Warlord Traits:

1: daemonhunter:
the warlord has the hatred (daemons) special rule. when the warlord casts the banishment psychic power he succeeds in channeling on a 2+ on the warp charge rolls instead of 4+.

2: hammer of righteousnes:
the warlord and his unit gain the hammer of wrath USR

3: unyielding anvil:
the warlord and all units of codex: grey knights within 12" gain the stubborn usr

4: the first in the battle:
if you place the warlord and his unit in deepstrike reserve he arrives on turn 1 and can reroll the scatter dice.

5: master of counterattack:
the warlord and his unit gain the counter attack USR

6: master scholar:
the warlord may roll one additional psychic power when generating psychic powers. this power has to be from the daemonology: sanctic discipline.

deimos rage: stormbolter with 36" s4 ap 5 assault 3, master crafted, precision shots.

domina liber daemonica:
the wielder of this relik can roll for a additional psychic power. this power has to be generated from the daemonology: sanctic discipline.
in addition every allied unit of codex: grey knights within 6" of the model with this relik can reroll all rolls of 1 when they try to channel daemonology: sanctic powers.

bone shard of solor:
the bearer gains a 3+ invulnerable save if he is within 12" of a model with the special rule daemon. this invulnerable save becomes a 2+ if a model with the special rule daemon of khorne is within 12". in addition the bearer also gains the hatred: khorne special rule.

armor of martyrs:
terminator armor with 2+/5++. the user gains it will not die, relentless, feel no pain, bulky and cannot sweeping advance.

nemesis banner:
allied units of codex: grey knights within 12" gain the fearless usr. all units in the same units as the banner gain +1 attack. all daemons with the daemon usr treat all terrain within 12" of the model with the banner as dangerous terrain. even open terrain counts as dangerous.

the soulgleeve:
s+ 1 ap 3 melee, daemonbane, force, soulprint(sp?), two handed.

soulprint: a character that wields the soulgliev may reroll all failed channel rolls when activating the forceweapon. in addition the wielder rerolls all failed to hit, to wound and armour pen rolls when the gleeves force effect is active. (against everything, not only daemons)
