So I'm playing blood angel and my opponent is playing Tezeentch chaos marines. I have absolutely no experience with chaos at all so I'm somewhat at a disadvantage.
I figure a libarian or Mephiston would be good here against his psykers but I do not know how effective they would be.
If he plays with lots of Thousand Sons, he's able to pour out quite a few AP3 shots from their bolters, so stay in cover, otherwise your marines die like flies.
Get in close combat with them asap, but beware of the rapid fire range, and since they are slow and purposefull, they can shoot all the time even if they move.
And one more thing, the Aspiring Sorcerer in every 1k Sons Squad has a force weapon. (but they are a very expensive unit over all)
If he brings a Demon Prince/Sorcerer with Lash (unfluffy) you will be happy to have the Libi with you.
Do you know a bit more in detail what he brings to the game?
+ We are changer, we are danger // Fallen angels, yet stranger +
+ WIP CSM & DH Exorcists in the making +
I only know hes taking the noise marine.
AP3 boltgun......damn they got something like sternguard. well that sucks for my assault marine and sanguinary priest.
O I forgot to mention we are playing at 2000pts.
Just use FnP to your advantage, make sure everyone has it. Use a Libby so you can block Psychic powers, whatever ones he happens to have. Noise Marines are pretty bad although they will keep up with your in CC. Just have some things to bust any transports/armor he takes and run up as fast as you can, placing any terrain you can in the middle.
Also, read the Chaos Codex.
thanks for the quick reply.
I have been reading the codex of theirs but there's some stuff in there that's outdated and doesn't make much sense to me hahaha. ( that and i'm also at work =P)
for now, Im running Dante, 3 full assault squads, 2 predator with las cannon, a scout squad, 2 sanguinary priest with jump pack and a baal predator. I have 500 points left over so i was thinking of having Mephiston in the mix.
What's out of date? It's a 5th edition Codex.
ok just went on the GW website and apparently the chaos codex that my friend handed me is the 4th edition and I didnt know there was a newer edition codex since he handed me that one. sorry sorry
If he's using that one he needs to buy the new one, the old one is a very overpowered book.
no, the friend who handed me the codex doesnt play chaos anymore. went to tyranids. I need to talk to him bout this tho hahahaha
why is the old one overpowered? I miss the old chaos codex -daemon armies were fun to play against (and you could win with them :p ), The original legions were fun to play with and competetive.
New chaos codex reeks -It's not fun to vs them anymore all the old legion fluffyarmies suck -the only way to make em competetive is to ignore the fluff and try to get some synergy happening between squads from different gods and i loathe what they did to daemons, dp's and the unique characters
