I'm building up my Black Legion army, but money is tight so I'm trying to put together a few units that I can use in rosters of different sizes. So, since my Chosen will be getting a slightly different paint scheme, it would help me if you folks could give some examples of your favourite units of Chosen in Power Armour (not Terminator), so I can have a good idea of which models I'll need. Thanks!
power armor chosens have limited acces to power weapons,but you could always use them as CC support to your Hq, but for that purpose, use a CSM squad they get more or so the same options for 3 pts cheaper.Originally posted by Oneiros@Dec 22 2004, 01:27

You may want to order some of the Chaos Bits sprues, lots of good stuff to help distiguish regular models from the chosen ones. It has some spikes and spikes with that sort of head schizkabob? totem pole style.
If you are to take chosen in power armour have you thought of taking Possessed Marines instead? They are not that much more expensive and they come with Daemonic Aura and Daemoinc Strength for that price. You could really distinguish them and paint them with another pattern than the rest of your army, that and all the customized look you can give them with the mutation sprue that comes with the CSM squad box.
Chosens in power armour are not worth it IMO, there is other cheapers units that can do all they can do. Its just that they are the summum in customization, you can do whatever you want with such a unit.
I'm not a fan of Chosens, even in terminator armour. Too expensive inside an already expensive army list.
I thought about it and the only reason I would put a chosen unit in a black legion army is for the special Icon they can carry. The Daemon Icon is very potent to summon Daemons without having to roll for summoning. I would equip my squad like this:
Chosen Chaos Space Marine (5)
- Bolt pistol, CC weapon (3)
- Melta guns, CC weapon (2)
- Icon Bearer, Daemon Icon, Bolt Pistol (1)
Chosen Aspiring Champion (1)
- Power Fist, Bolt Pistol
Total point cost: 178
Model count: 6
You could replace the melta guns for plasma guns if you wish to, its a question of preference. You could use this unit to bound a Daemon unit to the Icon and give it infiltrate so it can act as a tank hunter squad as well as giving a good start to a powerfull Daemon squad appearing near the enemy as soon as the second turn. A rather expensive unit, but at least it have its use.
