From what I've been reading I am totally going to start a Chaos army once my marines are done. Marines were my first attempt at this game and they were a good beginner army but saying that, I'll never paint white armour again!!!
So I am having trouble deciding on an army, I want to stray away from what I did with the space marines. I don't want the same army only different, I want something totally unique, totally outrageous, totally....big. Thus forgeworld. Price would not matter (to a certain degree) but I can see myself buying something forgeworld for practical gaming purposes. Here is my dilemma, what to get.
A deamon prince would bee cool, then what? What would be appropiate to go with the DP? A small cult like army of uber size and awesomeness or lots of regular followers? And what size point games are justifiable to use such a jugernaught?
A Titan would also be cool, what kind and for what Chaos following. IW sound appropiate but predictable.
They also have large daemon/summoning creatures...that would be more realistic.
What are your thoughts?
...and you will know my name is the lord, when I strike down my vengence upon thee...
daemon princes are used in all sized games, depends how much you like them really. they can also lead any type of army you want its down to you. what u prefer e.g combat/shooting/psychic.
titans on the other hand, i would say at least a 3000 point game to use one of these, i wouldnt play any lower points cost as i think it would be boring and a waste of time, but hey if u want go for it. im sure some 1 else will give u a longer post soon as what usaully happens on here. i havent played much in ages so dont know too much on these matters
heh, Forge World, I love it. I currently have the Bloodthirster and am saving for the titan. I borrowed a friends titan to play it in a list of mine, and all the firepower in a 7,000 point game was focused on it. I was playing over 2,000 points of forge world stuff on the table too, 1,300 of that being the titan. It seems underpowered in the firepower department, but I think that was because my friend had set it up to play in 4,000 point games. I will say that it was still magnificent. It is also incredible at taking out orks. Goodbye battlewagons, and then about 400 points of orks, and it continued to take out that many orks each turn.
It didn't make up its points but did a fantastic job getting rid of sluggaboys and drawing all the firepower to it without dying. It really helped me get into combat with those orks too. Not a single troop was touched, and only 1 biker unit had a casualty. After the first turn of carnage he focused everything on that titan and gave up taking out my troops, much to his demise. He realized that once he was met with 80 berzerkers taking out squad after squad of orks, supported by a daemon prince and forge world bloodthirster. the bloodthirster probably took out 2 sguads of speed freaks, a warboss, and a BATTLEWAGON!
All this said, I love forgeworld stuff. If you like Khorne, Angraath the FW Bloodthirster looks wonderful when followed into battle by about 60 berserkers and 40 bloodletters, so I would go with massive hoards of supporters. To bring out Angraath and a titan is a seriously scary combo. Especially when Angraath gets added mid game and starts blowing everything up. I would reserve titans for games of at least 4,000 points though, as they come out to be about 1400 points depending on your set up.
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.
