    Most expensive model

    What is the most expensive model, point wise, in your army that isn't an independent character or vehicle?

    Earlier I was just messing around and created a 5 man chosen retinue for my DP. I gave them:-

    Mark of Khorne
    Daemonic Strength
    Daemonic Resilience
    Daemonic Speed
    Daemonic Aura
    Daemonic Armour
    Banner of Rage
    x1 Melta Bomb
    x1 Lightning Claws
    x4 Power Weapons

    All aspiring champions

    Basic cost with no weapons came to 80. With weapons and banner of rage added it totals to exactly 500 points. So in theory 100 points a model. The squads aim "in theory" is to follow the daemon prince around the table at high pace, killing whatever they come across. In total, DP with this retinue comes to 700 points for 6 models.

    I can just see the local eldar player collapsing with laughter the first time a starcannon gets pointed at this squad.

    Seriously, I'm not a big fan of uber-expensive squads. They don't tend to make their points back, and they're fragile as hell considering how much you've invested in them. This squad is just going to draw every plasma gun, lascannon, railgun, starcannon, bright lance and power weapon on the board, because even if your opponent loses one squad for every 2 models he kills, he's still earning mega points.

    Very true, try not to give in to chaos that much, because I could wipe that squad off to the board before they got to me, and I play Khorne so only major firepower is in tanks. But when taking out 700 points in 3 turns, I wouldn't hesitate to turn 6 lascanons, 2 of them twin linked, a battelcannon, reaper autocannon, and havoc launcher on that squad.

    That said, the most expensive squad per model I play is this.

    5 chosen terminators - 265
    5 chainfists
    5 Marks of Khorne
    1 champion upgrade
    1 Talisman of Burning Blood
    1 Collar of Khorne

    Still, same points as a land raider crusader, and they would wipe one out easily.

    One of the biggest mistakes a 40K player can make is taking someone elses army to battle. Remember its your army, play it how you play it.

    Starcannon Starcannon.
    (I play Eldar)

    Any way sure its fun just to toy with it, but its probably a bad Idée... Its cool any way 6 models 700 point, that’s a cheep army, in money any way.

    I don't actually plan on using this for any serious games, just against my friends. I wouldn't be stupid enough to use it where it really matters. My friends tend to use big, expensive units so I just thought i'd even it out a bit.

    RobtheGuru, if you are to field such an expensive bunch of Champions you should get them "feel no pain" for the last few points that remains to the limit. I agree it's a waste of points in a "serious" game, but when one plays for fun there is no need to think of the game from that angle. Just have fun.

    I would never be able to field my possessed if they were to be worth their points

    To apologise for being a bit unhelpful.. here's my most expensive unit.

    6 Terminators, 1 free aspiring champion - 339 points
    Mark of Slannesh
    1 Chainfist
    1 Blastmaster
    Free aspiring champion with 1 Lightning Claw
    Rapturous Standard

    Even then, using them can be a bit nail biting.

    Lord w/ Bike, DMut, DStr, Darkblade, MoU, Infiltrate.

    4 CAC w/ Bike, DTalons, DMut, Spiky Bits, MoU, Infiltrate each.

    480 points.
