Abbadon The Despoiler
Khârn the betrayer
Lucius The Eternal
Hi i just wanted to know what was the most used chaos space marines special character that was used in a 1500/1750pts battle. i my self uses Khârn for the most part.
I find it interesting that you even did the little pronunciation mark for kharn's name but couldnt get Typhus correct. =p
Kharn is always a beast, regardless of how many points your army is, but Typhus is definitely nice as well , just costs a bit more for some more survivability and easily cast psyker abilities (and won't kill his own squad) while still being very deadly in CC.
At 1500 points and 1750 i rarely use any special characters, i find the more generic lord/sorceror or daemon prince options can be utilised more effectively, 2k or above i use abaddon sometimes, he is an absolute beast.
Kharn compliments my thousand sons so well <3
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!
Either Kharn or Typhus
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
For people saying Abaddon is too expensive for 1500pts, or even 2000pts, he is not, i played a nidzilla list, with abaddon in a LR, a lash prince, 1 squad of Zerkers and some marines, and i won easily, Abadon, killed 3 fexes, 1 hive tyrant, almost 2 squads of guants (before 1 did the last wound).
He easily makes his points back....
Kharn for sure! 165 pts for an HQ isn't much to ask for considering warptime princes cost 175 and every game I've used him he has more than proven his usefullness and made his points back.
I used Abbadon during 4th edition rules a few time and he is a beast, normally taking down more than his points worth. However, with the new rules being that only troops are scoring units I find myself swapping him for a squad of berzerkers or plague marines to help me win objective games. If I was guaranteed to be playing annihilation Abaddon would make the cut every time.
