Andy has created a starter army for budding Chaos Marine players. He’s gone with Black Legion, to leave room for you guys to tweak the list. But was that the right choice?
You don’t need the icon with the terminators if you’re using them to escort your lord since he’ll confer the benefits of fearless, so that’ll free up points for the ectoplasma cannon on the forgefiend.
I agree with the lack of marks for a starting point, after a few games you could then tailor them to see where any of your units fall short.
If you’re running a nigh on all assault army then I’d be tempted to run with a Maulerfiend or a unit of 5 Spawn with the Mark of Nurgle to ‘back-up’ the footslogging marines – either that or an extra HQ, like a cheap Chaos Lord just to add some ectra punch to the 20 man unit.
Either that or you could take a Vindicator to roll behind them and then blast things to pieces. I’m also a fan of all things plasma, so the Ectoplasma (a lazy name – honestly..tsk) Cannons would be a necessity for me – if you’re going against marines they’ll hopefully do some serious damage before the thing is innevitably destroyed.
And leave the Cultists alone, their hearts are in the right place and they make perfect fodder to probe the enemy’s defences. Sacrifice and reward guys, c’mon
Maybe I am missing something but adding up the points from what you guys are saying sounds like this is over 1500. Would you be able to post the list?
GW wouldn’t like that
I think they’d be okay with just posting points costs for units, rather than every upgrade EG Lord with termi armour power weapon combi plasma meltabombs and sigil- 142 10 terminators with combi plasma and icon of vengence-399 20 marines champ with two power wepons and melta bomb and icon of vengence-330 10 marines champ with two power wepons and melta bomb and icon of vengence- 200 15 marines champ with two power wepons and melta bomb and icon of vengence- 265 Aegis defence line and quad gun-100 forgefiend 175 Total 1611.(oops)
Probably would have been better posting this video after you had posted the Heavy and HQ vid’s.
what’s that in the toilet? it looks like a cat climbing out. lol
