I have for quite a long time wanted to make use of all the four gods in one army, but never really found a way.
Then Caluin gave me the awnser in a thread, I just not realised it at that time.
My idea goes...
The Lord is a mighty prophet of the dark gods. Undivided Lord.
The Lt rides a Daemonic Steed and has a retinue of chosen. They all bear the mark of one god.
A unit of chosen bearing the mark of another god, champion riding steed.
Theese two units occupy one of the elite slots.
The other two slots are used by two other units each carrying the mark of a god and their champs would naturally be mounted on Daemonic steeds.
What I cannot decide is what god goes where, what kind of unit to use for the two "unchosen" units.
As I have come to respect the insights you people have and your experience of units bearing another mark then that of Tzeentch I would like to hear your oppinion?
the Lt probly should be slaanesh or khorne im my opinion
We fight the long war, not through vain notions of duty or honour, but through a far purer purpose: hatred.
I do what the voices tell me. :)
From now on we will ***k things up my way.
(ok nm any spellings that are wrong im not very good)
I did no such thing! You can't prove it! Oh, wait, this is a good thing. Okay then. Carry on.Originally Posted by Andusciassus
So, would they be riding God specific steeds (when possible), or would they be using just the generic Steeds?
The naming would be pretty simple. Khorne would be War, Nurgle would be Pestilence, Slaanesh would be Famine (I figure that they're so wrapped up in their hedonistic lifestyles, they slowly starve themselves), and Tzeentch is left with Death (ultimate change - transition from life to death).
Tzeentch and Khorne could probably be changed around - War is always a catalyst to change, and Khorne ofcourse loves death.
It's a very cool, fluffy idea -but the fact that you're giving line troop Champions steeds (a movement modification) makes it sort of counter-productive. But, who really cares? The fact that you're playing with the Four Horsemen makes it cool.Well, that depends on if you plan on making every Chosen a champion. I would atleast make on non-Chosen unit the Tzeentchians, so you have the Rubrics instead of sorcerers. If you don't plan on having many many Aspiring Champions, the others don't really matter. If you do plan on making the Chosen units all Champions, then the other non-Chosen unit should be Khornate, to mitigate the speed penalty.Originally Posted by Andusciassus
[quote=Caluin]I did no such thing! You can't prove it! Oh, wait, this is a good thing. Okay then. Carry on.They would be riding generic steeds, just to make the horse in horsemen come through. (The other option would be "the four steedmen" or even worse"the discman, the juggernaughtman, the steedman and the guy walking...not quite the same punch to it.)So, would they be riding God specific steeds (when possible), or would they be using just the generic Steeds?As a wise man once said "thanks for the cudos"It's a very cool, fluffy idea -but the fact that you're giving line troop Champions steeds (a movement modification) makes it sort of counter-productive. But, who really cares? The fact that you're playing with the Four Horsemen makes it cool.Well it would be sweet, but not my cup of tea. maybe one or two extra powerweapons/fists, not more.Well, that depends on if you plan on making every Chosen a champion.That sounds good. Quite a counterproductive (as you said) unit, I like itI would atleast make on non-Chosen unit the Tzeentchians, so you have the Rubrics instead of sorcerers.
Lord Undivided with stature, speed and dreadaxe.
So, how about a SorcererLt of Slaanesh with a sixmen retinue, two champs one power weapon, one fist.
A unit of Thousand sons, champion with fist, bolt of change and Thralls.
A unit of seven chosen plaguemarines infiltrating, champ with fist, nurgles rot and the unit with two plasmas.
16 berzerkers, champ with fist all other chainaxes.
Can anyone see fluff/coolness reasons for different choices? Please let me know before i get to deep into the listmaking.
Stat wise, Khorne is better!
Slaanesh can also be famine because famine represents an unending hunger, never to be satisfied, for pleasure and emotional extremes... doesn't have to be for food. Could be a hunger for combat drugs too.Slaanesh would be Famine (I figure that they're so wrapped up in their hedonistic lifestyles, they slowly starve themselves
It's Bible Time with the Commissar Bible Time with the Commissar
The four Horsemen are and I quote
6:1 I saw that the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as with a voice of thunder, "Come and see!"
6:2 And behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow. A crown was given to him, and he came forth conquering, and to conquer.
6:3 When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, "Come!"
6:4 Another came forth, a red horse. To him who sat on it was given power to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. There was given to him a great sword.
6:5 When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come and see!" And behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand.
6:6 I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, "A choenix of wheat for a denarius, and three choenix of barley for a denarius! Don't damage the oil and the wine!"
6:7 When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature saying, "Come and see!"
6:8 And behold, a pale horse, and he who sat on it, his name was Death. Hell followed with him. Authority over one fourth of the earth, to kill with the sword, with famine, with death, and by the wild animals of the earth was given to him.
So lets repeat The four horsemen are Conqering, Killing, Balance, and Death.
Not to get completely off topic, but that depends on what translation of the Bible you use. Now I will say nothing more on that subject.So lets repeat The four horsemen are Conqering, Killing, Balance, and Death.
No any translation thats what it is.
People think its like pesitience and famine and such causes that makes it more "cooler" tv wise. But the vast majority of christians use these correct revelations in the bibles. I dont know what ones you have been reading.
