Am I reading correctly - can all of my chosen be aspiring champions?
I'm dreaming of an HQ squad mounted on juggernaughts Gotta do somthing with those old models eh... it's also on of the few ways to give a non-character model daemonic essence (extra wound).
Firstly, you can make a whole squad of chosen ACs, and giving them all Juggernauts seems, to me, to be one of the more feasible reasons for doing this (so, in other words, Good Idea! I wouldn't have thought of that). Just remember, it'll be ridiculously expensive...
Yes, that's one of the benefits to taking a squad of Chosen - multiple Champions.Originally Posted by shoottokill
Now - it's not exactly wise to do so. More on that in a second.Actually, it's the only way. Unless you count Thousand Sons, but who really counts them anyways?Originally Posted by shoottokill
I don't suggest you make every model in the squad a Champion though - that gets mighty expensive quickly. At best, you're looking at 67 points per model on Jugger, before any other upgrades. A squad like that would benefit from quite a few extra Red Shirts to eat the opening wounds.
My plan is to have aspiring champion terminators as my retinue- but only have 4 of them, so that i can fit them and my lord in a land raider.
Good idea? Bad idea?
*In My Mind*

I like the jugg idea. Expensive, but if you're goofing around in high point game, why not? Might give me cause to try converting some mounted Daemonettes into chosen with Mounts of Slaanesh, too. :yes:I knew there was a reason I painted my Witch hunter's inducted guardsmen with red fatigues...Originally Posted by Caluin
No doubt - BUT THEY'RE JUGGERNAUGHTS! *froth*
I also spent nearly $40 a piece for em!
Seriously though... it worked out to about 73 pts a piece with 'furious charge,' 'counterattack,' and 'Feel No Pain.' Not much pricier than uh... a whole squad of terminator champions
The lord (also mounted) has a personal Icon - which allows for a guaranteed summoning of a single squad of demons at any time (we're talking a 2000 pt World Eaters here)... I also threw in a chaos spawn for the lord just so i could field my Scyla model.
Thanks for calrifying that for me man.
Just a few things, marines with a mark can only have 1 veteran skill. You'll probally want to drop counter assult.
Also, personal icons don't function in the same way as dose a deamon icon, and seeing as how they are khorne units, you can't take a deaomn icon. You do get access to the banner of rage, but thats really just overkill when you include the juggernaughts.
yes you can have a unit of ACs but only independent characters can take daemonic essence so no two wound ACs.
Long ago there was something in me, but now that thing is gone,
I cannot cry, I cannot care, that thing will come back no more.

True, but AC's ar not bared from taking juggernaughts from the Khorne Daemonic gifts section of the armory. Juggernaughts then confer the Essence, Strength, and Mutation Daemonic upgrades to the rider. It is a entirely legal way to give AC's 2 wounds.Originally Posted by Zartas
Plus, they look damn sweet.

What is this overkill you speak so fondly of?!Originally Posted by daedelus
Hmm... I'm reading that daemon icons can be taken by units of chosen bearing the proper mark or chaos undivided. HOw I read the personal icon entry is that it is used exactly like a unit icon for summoning daemons... which is indeed different than daemon icon... which is what i'm sure i meant to say in the first place anyway
Also - the unit with the two vet skills is Chosen - all aspiring champs (this is turning into half an army list fast)
I'll post the army list in the appropriate place when i'm less tired.
