I've heard off some guy that Obliterators CAN be used in pure Khorne/Thousand sons armies. Im almost posotive you cant, but i cant find where it says that. Can anyone give me a page reference to back me up??
you can its just it might enter bloodfenzy for khorne
please madness, read the chaos codex, cult armies can only take units that can have that mark, since obliterators can't take a mark at all, only non-cultarmies can take them
On pg. 27 there is no option to give obliterators a mark. On pg 38 on the chart that says what unit can get what mark obliterators aren't there because they can't get marks. On pgs. 48 (khorne) and 61 (tzeentch) the first bullet under the world eaters and thousand sons says that you can't take units that can't have the respective mark because the whole army has to have the mark.
However, if he isn't using the rules for the specific armies and is just using a generic chaos list, but has just given everyone the mark of either khorne or tzeentch, then it is legal. It is possible to have a generic list and give everyone a mark of khorne, but you don't have to.
If he's playing either world eaters or thousand sons then he can't use them, but if he's playing generic chaos then he can.
I'm amazed at how much I see this misconception. NO! You cannot use obliterators in a "pure" army of any mark. In "pure" armies only units that can be given a mark can be used. Oblits cannot be given the mark of khorne, tzeentch, etc. You can use them and have every other unit in the army have a mark. But in WE, DG, TS, or EC, only units that can be given there designated mark can be used. Oblits cannot be given a mark and therefore canot be used in the armies I just listed.
I'm confused. So could I use them in a tzeentch army, but then it wouldnt be a thousand sons army? I just wouldn't get any demon bonuses or free asp champs?
Thanks for the replies.
I never thought you said PURE.... :confused:
