Ok, I had an idea the other day and wondered if it might work.
Btw, this is just an idea and has no factual evidence to base conclusions.
I was reading the LatD list the other day, and they are led by a few CSM champions. Well, what if you had a Chaos Marine Army, with 5 man squads, with Asp champion, and 4 meat socks? A close combat monster hiding behind 4 bodies. I'm not saying boost them up to Uber God-like status, but Demi-Uber God-like status. so you have a little hq in every squad to massacre in CC. Of course, I haven't tried this, but it seems like a fun thing to try.
Anyone actually done this?
Mad Props to Angel_of_Rust for the sig.
My Asp Champs are relatively well boosted anyways, its just that they are only Marines. Their survivability isnt all that great when they meet something AP2 or AP3. They die too fast to be properly boosted. Keep them not too expensive, and they rip most things to pieces anyways.
The problem, as in any assault oriented army, will be transportation/movement. If you have a lot of 5 man squads, it'll cost a fortune to transport them all in rhinos.
So, you're left with trying to move an entire army across the board with no armor or invulnerable saves and only a 6" movement.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
