Hello, I've quite new to the tabletop version of Warhammer 40000.
I was originally planning to go with Tyranids as my first army, but then I concluded that Tyranids are not vicious enough.
I just love the background on Khorne.
So here is my go at a Khorne only army:
2x Winged Khorne Daemon Prince: 140 each
4x 8 Khorne Berzerks: 2x Plasma Pistols, Power Fist - 238 each
4x Rhino: Daemonic Possession, Combi-Flamer - 65 each
This comes to a total of 1492 points, Khorne's Conquest of Paradise.
The objective with this army is not really a competitive army, but something I can have fun without failing horribly on the table.
So I wanted to ask some opinions on this matter as I think my first army could decide whether I get into this expensive hobby or never come back.
Do you think I could have "fun" playing this?
No I do not think you can have fun playing that army. Not to start with a least. This kind of army is fun once in a while when you're opponent plays something similar, so you're both in close combat on the second turn.
1) you are not playing the shooting phase so that makes you skip 1/3 of the game for you
2) you have to get in close combat to start doing something, against some opponents you will not even make it if you can't stun/immobilze their transports.
3) watching your models get blasted off the table without even doing something in return for 2-3 turns is not very interesting when the game can stop on turn 5.
Something like this would already be better
Prince with wings and rage of Khorne (warptime) 155
2 X 10 CSM, 2 meltaguns, icon Khorne, champ, fist, rhino 550
2 X 8 berzerkers, champ fist, rhino 486
2 predators with autocannon and lascannon sponsons 260
2 defilers with additional close combat weapon and reaper autocannon 300
