Overall vs opponents which do you think out of noise marines, khorne berzerkers, plague marines and thousand sons do you think will do the best overall.
What i mean is not vs each other but all other armies as a whole cuz in reality plague marines just beat all the other ones in squad to squad combat but they might not be able to out kill MEQS like tzeentch or khorne.
Just post your personal opinions and what one you like the best.
I like Khorne.
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
Skulls for the Skull Throne. But Thousand Sons are a close second for me, especially against MEQ armies.
I voted Thousand Sons, because they are my only painted Troop Choices for now =)
I would take any of the cult marines as troops, except Berzerkers. If I want crazy CC i go for Khornate Raptors.
The other 3 are to me just a matter of flavour and need. I'll take the choice who plays good with the rest of my army.
"And that, my liege, is how we know the earth to be banana-shaped"
As far as i'm concerned all 4 cult troops choices excel at what they do. Plague marines are fantastic at taking the hits and surviving. Berserkers make excellent counter attack units, and are particularly powerful when teamed up with a lash of submission. Noise marines are ideal at taking out hordes at 24" (hell, pretty much anything really), whilst Thousand sons are great for taking out MEQ.
Each cult unit has a task and they all do it well, i'd be happy to use any of them in an army. I don't think any of them stands out above the rest, though as a Death Guard player for some time i can't help but prefer them!
Noise marines because they worship Slaanesh.
Up, up and away!
I love my Noise Marines to death, but rule-wise I think Plague Marines rule now. Noise Marines big attraction (sonic weaponry) is very over-priced, but Plague Marines have a lot of fluffy, cool abilities at a reasonable price.
Hive Fleet Fuzzy Bunny: Lots and lots of points of Nids (4000pts+)
The Chapter of the Damned: 5500pts of Dark Angels
The Children of Fulgrim: 5-6000pts of Emperors Children
The Kabal of the Bloodied Claw: 2000pts of Dark Eldar
After tonites game I'm going to have to say Khorne Bezerkers. I just started playing Chaos so haven't really tested the others out too much, but the zerkers made a killing for me tonite. They bagged 4 Ogryns, 10 Kasrkin, and 1 hellhound which were all key kills as we were playing a take and hold mission for center board.
I voted 1k Sons you wipe out whole armies in a single ripid fire shooting phase. They aren't that allround though but its as good as it gets for killing meqs. I would put plagies as second for the plasmaguns and the fact that theya re more or less unkillable though they seem a bit pricey whn you compare them to necron warriors who absically do the same thing and have guass guns. Noise marines are a close runner up to plagies because the torrent off fire a 6 man squad with sonic blasters can put out is just silly. park them anywhere in firing range and everything t5 or less dies horribly and t6-7 can be bagged with just massed firing.
zerkers however stink. really expensive and FC just makes no sense in a unit that is unable to engage anything at 13+" which is generally what is required for any cc unit. at least they could have given them the special rule to be able to charge from rhinos...
