I'm having trouble trying to pick what to do. I want to either do a Khorne list or Tzeentch list.
I like both of Their units and fluff but cant make up my mind and I want to do one or the other not really both at the same time.
So can some help me maybe by posting the advantages and disadvantages of each.
I'm a new Librarium member so please be nice
i would say tzeentch because the have a invul save so their very survivable and they have slow and purposeful so they can move and shoot their guns max range and their inferno bolts take care of that pesky marine armor, and their squad leaders can be phykers. But then again its alot more fun imagining khorne beserkers ripping apart their enemy in cc, plus kharn is da man!!!!
thanks for the help Tzeentch does sound the better of the options right now. I'm mostly going to be playing against MEQ's and tau. so thank you again
Bolth work realy well. It's funny watching marines just die to TS's bolter fire with anything they can do. Bolth also have one big weakness, they have to get there anti-tank from somewhere other then there basic troops.
Either way, make sure your core units are Vanilla Chaos Space Marines with an Icon. Paint 'em red or blue, but don't underestimate the normal troopers. An army made entirely of the 'super' marines (Death Guard, Berzerkers, Noise Marines, Thousand Sons) really only works for Nurgle and to a lesser extent, Slaanesh. An all - 1K Sons build is expensive and very limiting, slightly less for Berzerkers.
And remember, every squad needs a transport.
Tzeentch can in fact have some measure of anti-tank support within there squads in the form of bolt of tzeetch. Perhaps not the cheapest anti-tank option, but supports the squads primary role (anti-heavy infantry) and adds versatility.
I would however also advocate basing your army largely around basic marines with the mark, and it seems in this case like perhaps tzeentch is the best option. An invulnerable save to soak up the nasty firepower your enemies are likely to pack could be quite handy.
Hope this helps.
