    Word Bearers 1000 points

    Ok, I just read through some of the smaller CSM legions, and the word bearers appealed a lot to me. I like daemons, and I thought that it could be fun to make an assaulty daemon heavy army. I made it a 50/50 mix of marines and daemons, but I am in doubt whether or not it is a clever choice to start with only 13 models on the table.. I know that my DE would make CSM soup if they went up against this list, but then again nothing really measures up to the power of the DE. What do you think?

    HQ (176):

    Chaos Lord
    + Mark of Chaos Undivided
    + Accursed Crozius
    + Bolt Pistol
    + Daemonic Essence
    + Daemonic Flight
    + Daemonic Strength
    + Daemonic Resilience
    + Infiltrate

    I've never used furies. I don't think they are worth the point values.

    Consider the following daemon options:

    Daemonettes: These girls are cheap tank killers, though they have no staying power. That's ok, becaus they are used to kill expensive elites and vehicles. Six in a squad is ample for 1000 point build. At 90 points, it's not a bad investment.

    Horrors & Flamers: These pups are amazing against all non-3+ armies, and can be good against 3+ armies as well. While the flamers are expensive, they really help to control the swarm. Most people take 3-5 flamers and 1-3 horrors.

    Just a few thoughts about your daemon choices.

    Ok then, furies are not good. How about this then?

    Much better. Since your daemonettes are in squads of 8, they can substitute for quick troop killers. You'll have a few left as well, which will draw fire away from other parts of your army. No one likes having these girls thrown against them, and in my experience, most people try to kill them as fast as they can.

    Maybe you should tune down the Lord a bit to free points up for more ChaosMarines.
    Those two 5-men squads qould be anihilated way before the daemons choose to enter play. Daemons can be sooo moody...
