hello, i'm new to both WH40k and LO, so I'll start by saying hello all and i'm glad to be a part of the Chaos Legions. As you can see from the title, I'm making a small Escalation League army of Word Bearers. However, I'm having trouble figuring out such a small list, like 400 or 500 points worth.
The Dark Apostle I figured I could keep low points, such as:
Dark Apostle - Chaos Lt.
+ ACCURSED CROZIUS
+ MARK OF CHAOS UNDIVIDED
+ SPIKY BITS
+ BOLT PISTOL
Don't wanna have a point sink HQ. Now I'm having trouble figuring out what to put in my troops choices.
I'm not sure whether to do all Bolters or CCW/BP, AC's or not, what kinda special or heavy weapons...I want to maximize troops to overwhelm in this small size fight. I figured I'd do 2x CSM troops and 1x Daemon unit, perhaps Daemonettes. If anyone has a 500 pt army they'd like to share, i'd be very very appreciative (sp?)
Thanks for all help in advance. Once I figure it out, I'll post pics since i'm gettng and painting models this weekend (gotta spend that paycheck!!)
Eventually, I'll get to a 1000 pt game, so if you have advice for that size too, lemme know. Thanks.
Ah! Fresh victims!
WElcome to LO and a cordial welcome to the Chaos Section. Remember to take a quick read through the forum rules and stuff (can be easily found in my signature), and also remember to enjoy your time here.
Righto, Word Bearers hmm?
I think Word Bearers would make a decent choice for escalation.
I think you're spot on with 2 squads of marines, some daemonettes and a modest HQ.
It's well balanced and also still remaining a nice bit of fluff.
with regards to troop layout, it's entirely up to you - Chaos are flexible, but i would strongly recommend at least:
1 aspiring champion with a powerfist - very good for IC hunting and Tough creature hunting.
1 or 2 missile launchers or preferably autocannons - you never know who's going to take land speeders or other vehicles.
Perhaps even 1 obliterator.
You'll also want a smattering of assault weaponry - typically plasma and melta.
Feel free to post an army list in the appropriate section (the Chaos army list section)

Alright, I'm posting my 500 pt. list in Chaos Army Lists now. I guess this thread could close and move to the Chaos Army List area and follow the new thread. Whatever works. Thanks Karmoon for your help!
