well as the name applies.. what is the best unit from the CSM to use as Assualt?
my army is going to have primarily assault and some heavy Units for support and i was wandering the best unit for Assult?
my standings are im thinking of having 2-3 bikes, maybe a couple Obliterators and a Heavy unit and the rest will be squads for Assualt... the Bikes are questionable though... thinking of not on them but i would like 3-4 Obliterators...
But seriously a good CC unit is what im looking for... its going to be the bulk of my Army...
ty for Intel
BTW im Waiting on the CSM Codex... so i hav nothing to go off..
Ok, here's my input:
-Bikes, like you mentioned, are a good assault unit, but they're expensive in points cost AND real money, and are only really effective in squads of 5 or more. Take them if you've got the points.
-Obliterators are pwnsome units, take them. But "3-4" is not an option, you can have 3 tops in an army. Just FYI.
-Now, in terms of fast assaults, the current Codex really doesn't have a lot. Raptors or Daemonettes are probably your best bet.
-Slower, but more dominating, assaults are where Chaos really excel. If you're prepared to accept the risk involved, Khorne Berserkers can be devastating. Bloodletters/Furies/Flesh Hounds are the best Daemons for CC, you might want to take a couple of units.
And if you've got the points, spring for a tooled-up Daemon Prince or Greater Daemon. There really is nothing like seeing such an awesome model decimating your opponents' force. Just don't send them into a large combat unsupported.
Just my two cents, hope this helped.
Welcome to LO, may you have a happy and prosperous time with us.
ty for your input.
i got my current Codex im assuming 4th edition is current and i was looking and i like the way raptors look. they look like a possitive.
i may have some Chaos Space marines as well. Chaos Lord for the commander in the army and i want heavy so a squad of 3 Oblits are coming and possibly a dread if i can fit the points... which will change to a Defiler if i have the points.
so i got
1 x Chaos lord
10 Raptors maybe 15
and maybe a Defiler or if i dont have the points a Dread
im thinking of equiping the marines with jump packs with Bolt Pistols and CC weapons.
specifics TBD ill post the final list in the Chaos army list.
ill mess with Daemons later after i learn to play good.
this thread can be closed if a mod feels
If points are no problem, I favor a unit of Raptors fully kitted out and maybe even carrying 3 flamers, but that depends on my opponent.
just my 2 cents.
