Hey one question(not sure if this is the right forum) but what are the Lost and Damned? Heard the people talking about them on the forums but not sure what they are. Some sort of chaos? Thanks in advance. :rofl:
They are a chaos army that can be found in Codex: Eye of Terror.
Lost and the damned focuses on the lesser elements of chaos (non-marines), including traitor guardsmen and various mutants. However, the lost and the damned can also take allies from the chaos codex.
As hidden said, they are the twisted populations of people who serve the Chaos Gods around the Eye of Terror. They use the Chaos and the IG codex as their starting points, but they offer a large amount of new troops (more than any other army in the EoT, if I remember correctly).
As far as play style goes they are pretty individualistic. For fire support you have Traitors (pretty much guardsmen) and Imperial and Chaos Ordinance (Basilisk, Leman Russ and Defiler). Then they have horde troops for CC in the form of mutants (though they can be given firearms, which probably end up killing more mutants than enemies), and bigger CC units in big mutants. Then there are demons and guardsmen fast attack to round off the list.
My LatD army looks like this:
Arch-Heretic (a Lt)
Allied Daemon Prince
3x 5 Traitors with lascannons
6 Chaos Bikes (Mark of Slaanesh, so they are elites)
So as you can see, it's a pretty varied list. The traitors are there to take out tanks, the Leman Russ and Basilisk pound at vehicles and troops alike, though their main target is hardcore troops. Bikes zip up the field shooting and charging at weak shooty-units and finally the rest of the army will shamble into whatever is left and (hopefully) overwhelm the rest of the army.
My 2000 point list then adds a defiler for more ordinance, a squad of possessed to take down tough HQs (like a DP or C'tan), another traitor squad for another lascannon and a squad of CSM for some flexibility.
It's a really fun army, particularly if you like doing conversions and painting. You have some great oppurtunities to do that here (I personally hate paiting, but that's what friends are for).
It is not a good idea for someone new to 40k to play with them as they are very hard to use effectively, the only person who I would recomend collect lost and the damned is a convering and modaling fanatic.
life is an icecream and you just have to lick it
