Just got my ticket, bringing my nightlords force ... anyone else gonna be there?
But good luck anyway buddy. Slaughter all in the name of Chaos!
Thanks for the cheers guys, I will definitely be looking for some feedback on my list come august time frame... thanks in advance...
This is what i'm working with so far...
2-4 CSM squads 2 plas/fist champ/icon
0-2 chosen squads melta/plasma/fists/icon
1-2 raptors squad melta l claws/icon
1 DP with wings warptime
0-1 lash sorcerer
Those are the building blocks I have, I"m anxiously awaiting the "official" new rule book to see how much of that leaked PDF is true. Namely scoring units/running/scenarios/ect to make my final selection. I have a good playtest group lined up from the local GW store club and with all the help I've gotten here over the years I'm looking forward to stomping some opponents in the name of CHAOS!!!
If you fight a hord of stuff with low armour saves, just use your bolt pistol. No harm done.
People underestimate S8, until some annoying hanky wielding eldar player locks your squad in combat with a Wraithlord.
If you take 2 squads of raptors (which is aweome) then you can consider taking L'claws on one squad for specific metagaming against Marines/Aspect warriors.
Anyway, powerfist is brilliant on the raptor champion, it goes well with meltaguns and allows you to charge tanks and expect to destroy them, after those double 1s to hit with the meltas.
It allows the champion to shoot before charging, become effective against MCs and Vehicles and deters ICs due to instant death or just general thumping pain.
It costs no more either!
I fully appreciate the goodness of powerfists, but plain and simple I roll 1's alot and I like things that reroll... Also I tend to run my raptors with IoS and on multiple occasions, I have killed the entire threat zone at I5... the 5th ed book will more then likely make up my mind on all these lil choices... thanks again for you your input guys...
