For those of you that dont know, godzilla is a nids list with most all Monstrous creatures. I just wanted to warn those of you who play khorn vs one of these lists.
You are most likely thinking, "well my chain axes and init of 4+ will take out all the fexes fast, and then all I have to worry about are the tyrants. But I can get them early with tanks or whatever" At least that was my thought.
My opponet was fielding squads of rippers to tar pit. Which isnt a problem for most armies. Howwever, most armies dont blood rage... let me give you a play by play.
Turn one I advance 6 inches with on squad and 10 with another. Deal two wounds on one gun fex, and 3 on a dakka with pred tanks. Things are going alright. His turn...
The squad that moved 10 takes 6 wounds from 15 shots fired by two dakka fexs, and the rest are finished off by a gun fex. One of my other squads takes 4 wounds from another dakka and oen gun fex. One of my preds is destroyed by the third gun fex... ouch.
This is OK. I just need to get to CC. My turn... omg we all frenzy and plow into the rippers. I kill alot of rippers yes, but I am stuck. I manage to kill one dakka and deal one more wound to a gun fex... his turn.
Oh what a surprise, charged by a flying tyrant, tyrant with 3 guards, and lots of fexes. It was over before I even knew what happend. 3 suqads of berserkrs wiped out just like that. All that was left was my prince, a squad of bikes, and one pred tank. They were made quick work of. I was virtually killed on his turn 2.
It all happend so fast. Beware that blood frenzy gets you killed against Godzilla. Now I must go lick my wounds and update my win loss record :_( <--- Emo tear
When all else fails... charge it with a Tyrant.
almost all WE have powerfisted champs in every squad, Since fex's have a relatively small number attacks I would have thought it impossible to kill a berserker squad before youre fist beat it down. rippers might be a problem but khorne doesnt particularly need a charge to dish out attacks. Sounds like you just got unlucky.:tongue:

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Hmm could we see the army list you and your opponent used could be a bit of fun to analyse how best to beat this type of enemy
I could beat it. I would require thinking but I could do it.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
I play my friends Godzilla list with my Khorne, and its damned hard. So far its 2-1 to him.
It would've been 2-1 to me, if I could roll a single 6 on 25 dice.
I can't really see Ripper swarms being all that great at tying up units. Most Godzilla lists only run the minimum of 2 units of 3 bases, which is nothing to eat through. Powerfisted Champs instant-kill those Ripper bases, and Khorne champs dish out a large number of attacks if set up right.
I also think you may have gotten unlucky with the Preds. Chaos vehicles are insanely irritating to 'Nids players. Daemonic Mutation makes them near invulnerable to a Gun-fex, and Mutated Hull helps a bit as well.
Now, I could see perhaps losing if he had a decent amount of Genestealers...
O god... Genestealers ::shivers::
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
