Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK after doing my SM army and finishing off my IG army I wanted to start a new race as everyone at my club plays Space Marines. So I whittled them down to 2 choices. Daemonhunters or Iron Warriors? Nobody plays Daemonhunters there so it would be nice to play something else for a change but Iron Warriors would be the only Chaos army there that did not involve CC (damn Beserkers :realmad. Any feedback would be greatly appriciated.
Well, they're not exactly close to eachother, so you gonna pick the style you wan't to play.
Iron warriors of course live on their heavy support and can take as many obliterators as they want if I recall right. Shooty army with 3+ saves isn't bad.
Daemonhunters (the ones I play) have extremely few models that die as easy as marines. Their main power is deepstriking with a whole bunch of str6 CC weapons, and possibly some help from an assassin (You must have an inquisitor then, but they kinda suck).
The reason I would suggest Daemonhunters is because you have the two armies that they can ally with. You can either have base SM with a few DH Units, a IG army with a few DH, or a DH list with a few IG.
You could also have a Non-GK DH list and induct Space Marines, but it's probably more effective the other way around.
I always recomend reading mEGALOMANIACS pinnned tactica in the DH forum for anyone interested in collecting them.
The style of play is basically to get back at SM but I'll have a look at that tactica.
Ok I had a look at that tactica and I'm leaning towards Daemonhunters because each model seems so good. Also those termies look awesome!
Do keep in mind that unless you induct a bunch of gaurd (and I mean A LOT) no matter how many points you play you will always be out-numbered. But true, the modles themselves make up for that, so then all you need are some tactics and you'll show those Heretics that the Inqisition has moved to town.
Best of luck.
Iron Warriors definately! I have a huge army of them and theyre easily my favourite army in the game! Go for the forces of Darkness and shinyness!
...And I shall be there, waiting, at the gates of hell, you shall not escape my wrath!
Well, from a simply practical standpoint, you already have BOTH a SM and a IG army. This would allow you to basically field an awesome DH army for a very small price using your existing IG (i assume you have storm troopers, shock troops, and a russ, soem people like sentinels, some dont). I wouldnt recommend inducting SM because it would just be a lot like your old army, but you could use the GK as allies to mix things up a bit.
On a side note, i dont really think DH play like SM at all. The famous survivability and flexibility of a SM tactical squad is totally lost with DH due to their unbelievably high point cost, so youre forced to use each squad decisively and effectively if you dont want your 25 point easy to kill as marines models getting thrashed.
i have a friend that did iron warriors and a friend that does DH. Every time i make the DH's my black man servant. iron warriors are hard as a mofo to kill. i mean HARD! If the tau didnt have rail guns or suits then i would lose every time.
