Well, i considered nids for a while, but after looking at the book, i decided they arent for me. Then, reverting to my chaos self, i painted a chaos sorceror better than any model i have ever painted. Liking the purple armor scheme, i decided to make an army of word bearers. I decided to post for some ideas.
I want in my army diverse items from all types of force selections - this is a bit more hobby than fighting. I'm probably going to get one of each type of vehicle just to paint. I like the idea of lots of troops, but i don't like Deamons. And finally I prefer shooting over CC.
Just putting up wht i want to see if i can get a consensus from the loacal gurus.
If your liking the idea of lots of troops, Word Bearers are for you. You could go with lots of CSM squads and fit them into particular roles: Furious Charge, Infiltrators, etc... other than that you could play Lost and the Damned and play lots of Traitor squads and marines. Many people play Word Bearers though in order to field multiple units of daemons.
Chaos does not have the most choices in the troops slot, however you could have a lot of fun customizing and converting troops to look like their role. Examples:
Infliltrators: I use a mixture of maruarder bits so they look like the have less bulky armor
Furious Charge: I use the khorne running legs, in corporating fantasy warrior weapons like maces, axes, and flails
Tank Hunters: Everyone has a cross hairs from the ork sprues, and kill markings on their bases/figure
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
Yeah. I like word bearers because of the accursed crozius, and i've already put together the beginning of a command squad with a Chaos lord in a Chaos Rhino. I was thinking of getting 6 troops choices and putting them all in Chaos Rhinos. Does that sound like a viable idea?
Viable, If you like rhinos and put extra armour and smoke launchers on. However, infiltrate is cheaper and without a sufficient bullet magnet, they will shoot at your rhinos and they will be open like a can of sardines. If you want to go shooting you may not want to move around a lot as well so your heavy weapons can pierce holes in the enemy like cheese.
Its a bit risky. It would cost alot and attacrt all the enemy's firepower. How about you put 4 in rhinos, and take a few units of deamons to attack when your up close in your rhinos. Good tactic IMO.:yes:Originally Posted by GenericGuy

Do you have uber micro...????
Well, a vehicle heavy army seems like it will work for me. Me freind has an anti personel BAAL class pred (BA), so the Rhinos can handle themselves pretty well. In a 500 points game, i beat him 875 to 50 (table quarters)
Yay! Now i have adefiler, but the POS (piece of s***) is a painful ***** to glue, and the left claw arm thingie wont glue down.
I'm not playing Word Bearers anymore! I have converted to Tzeench, but i am not 1k sons. My HQ squad is the only Tzeench unit.
