Okay I decided now I want to do another chaos army, and have in mind Black legion (with a different paint scheme and different fluff) and liked the idea of bikes... and daemons. The idea is that the bikers are paladin style chaos guys, spreading the word of chaos by riding their iron steeds into the enemy and summoning lots of daemons...
So the question is.. will my army be considered cheese? I don't like feeling cheesy as it takes the tactics and fun away.
3 Bike Squads, 6 Daemon packs, looks good to me, and you would look like a daredevil, go for it. 2 of your bike squads should be configured with tank huntind and special weapons, and shoud go for tank and big monster.

It sounds like the army you're after is Word Bearers. Their rules allow you to take up to nine Troops choices, mainly for the purpose of getting more Daemons. They're definitely "paladin" type Chaos... well, it's really more like an evil paladin. They're usually led by a fallen Chaplain - who has willingly embraced Chaos - known as a Dark Apostle. Bikes are great, but my own list uses infiltrating Chaos Space Marine squads and Havocs for summoning daemons. The general idea is the power-armored infantry infiltrates relativly close to the enemy lines (along with the Dark Apostle) and summons daemons to deal with enemy infantry in close combat while the Marines themselves take care of enemy armor and take chunks out of big stuff like Hive Tyrants and Wraithlords. I'm a general newbert to the army myself, but I've managed to create a fairly sane list with only half of it starting on the table.Originally Posted by bloodletter51
In summary, Word Bearers are what you're looking for. Dark warpriests that spread the word of Chaos and summon a crapton of daemons.
For the Dark Gods,
I sometimes use bikes to summon daemons in 2000+ games... it's fun. Bikes are easy enough to take out that it's not really cheese. Ditto raptors.
Now flying terminators summoning demons... that might be pushing some serious cheese!
Well, terminators don't fly, so no cheese problems there.
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.
Yes I know about word bearers, I love their fluff, but there special rules are nothing special. Black Legion can take more bikes as you can have marked bikers, such as Slaanesh bikers with a ton of sonic blasters :yes:, and the only thing better about the word bearers that vaguely apeals to me is 9 troops, but I'll only be taking daemons in those choices anyway, and to me the accursed crozius is too expensive. Also I want bikes, no infiltrating guys, as I like the look of bikes and it goes with my fluff- chaotic knights riding on their 'horses'.Originally Posted by Archetype
