It is the Lost and the Damned, the uprising of mortal chaos-worshippers, made of ranks of traitorous imperial guard regiments and mutated civilians united by powerful chaos champions who have left their legion to persue a personal goal (i.e. be in charge for once, albeit over a bunch of filthy humans).
They are technically a swarm army, as they have plenty of cheap troops, but they can take choices from Codex:Imperial Guard such as leman russ. They can also have CSM allies such as possessed and standard CSMs, as well as daemons, greater and lesser. And of course gibbering hordes- nurglings that don't have to follow behind Death Guard units.
Theie rules are in Codexye of Terror, and they aren't too bad on paper. Lots of expendable troops and some rock-hard backup to kill whatever you can't use numbers to drag down. It's a modeler's dream- there are no models for mutants, either the regular scabs or the big mutants, so you can let your imagination run riot here and in converting Guard units.
Thats about it, hope that helps.
The beautiful thing is you can take 3 Aspiring Champs as a single HQ choice, and since they're NOT independent characters, you can attach them to Mutant Squads, thus giving the champions 30-wounds of meat before he can be targeted, giving him enough time to beat your opponent up with a Powerfist. That you can take a Mutant leader armed with a powerfist in the same squad too means that behind this mass of cheap troops lurks an immensely powerful "hidden fist."
LatD may be my favorite army ever.
It is truly the most versitile army list out there. It can be used to field any number of ideas. Be they traitors, rogues, pirates, mutants, rebels, or anything else. I've even seen a list for african tribesmen with dinosaurs! :cool:
Which rules were used for the dinos? Monster mash?
The "unique" army I saw was House Atredies from Dune, with lots of Traitor Guard armed with lasguns, backed up by heavy infantry toting sonic weaponry, "Kroot" Fremen, and a monster mash Sandworm!
Prolly, rough riders, big mutants, and chaos spawn.Which rules were used for the dinos?
