Hi All, I am playing my first game against Warriors of Choas this sunday and i have wacked together an army list and i wouldnt mind some tips and suggestions on how tuse maybe modify or use the army and tips on how to kill off my opponent,hopefully some quick tips to kill off some characters early maybe. here is what i have got
Slann Scroll,battle standard,Huanchis blessed totem,blood statuette of spite,rod of the storm,bane head,higher state of conciousness,focussed rumination,focus of mystery,transcendant healing.
(Now i have several plans to work the slann with. One of them being the fact that it will be so hard to kill him and i have invested alot of points in him so thats alot of points my opponent wont get. he alone cost 565 alltogether,let alone the temple gaurd he will be with. I have given him rod of the storm so when the oppononet sees all my power dice nearly gone they will be ok using up there dispell dice and i have still got spells to play. will work first turn anyway. im going to give him lore of metal to battle against the armor and knock down a units killing capabilities with transmutation of lead. with 4 power dice,2 pool and a free dice for each spell cast,i can cast basically all of them if i want,and am a little lucky. this will be he;ped by an engine lowering the casting cost also.)
Scar Veteran - Light armour,shield,additional weapon,cloak fo feathers,talisman of protection,venom of the firfly frog
(Now i have given him the abbility to fly wich my opponent wont see coming from him so he can get behind enemy lines, might be useful to take out a character on its own or a warmachine crew. he has got 4 attacks normaly plus an aditional weapon so 5 attacks that are poisend, and he has got a pretty decent armour save and a 6+ ward as a back up)
Priest + Engine - glypch necklace,Burning blade of chotec
(well this is just hard ass unit, plus the priest will be harder to kill will its 2+ armour save from the steg and a 5+ ward,plus if he manages to get any attacks hit the modification of armour save makes up for stength)
Priest + Engine - Curse charm of tepok, dagger of sotek
(killing blow is a cheap item and an unexpected one if he facys my weak little priest hehe, and the charm just means if he gets lucky and nothing really happens if he miscasts i can make him take it again,hopefully do some damage without really doing anything)
11 Temple Gaurd - Command, Light armour,shield,champion has the sword of striking,jaguar standard
(now this unit with the slann is going to be a tough unit to crack with an engine or two nearby to help out if need be. plus the champion has a weapon hopefully meaning he will kill off a few more than the others. and the standard giving them more running distance, this coupled with the extra charge from the slanns standard, maybe get some overun if the slann wipes out enough with magic before they fight)
(10 Skinks) x 3
Using these as core fillers and will put them infront of my army so if the opponent wants to fight he will have to get through them wich means i flee and get the charge )
Yeah so any help will be appreciated
Do you have any information on his list? If he uses the daemon prince gateway spam you will lose unless you take becalming cogitation on your slann
As a warriors of chaos player myself I've inished off lists like this several times. You shouldn't count on only stegadons. He can field a few stubborn units who will just-not-break. Theres the rapturous standard wich combined with a BSB nearby makes a unit almost unbreakable. The banner of the gods on a disc can make any unit whereever he wants stubborn. Stegadons wont make it alone. If the daemonprince is there, you will wont have any stegadons left by turn 3 or 4.
I'dd suggest dropping 1 steggy, add more templeguards.( 12 is really easy to burn away using magic ) Some more heavy shooting would be nice. If you want a flank protector take razardons. If you want to annihilate complete ranks of marauders and warriors take salamanders.
Perhaps some saurus cavalry to go around the flank or take out his heavy cavalry (yes they can )
Terradons are nice for taking out marauder horseman, but than again.. so can your slann or skinks do.
It really depends on what kind of list he is going to use, but i hope it helps
I thought Cloak of Feathers was skink only? I don't have the book in front of me...
I am more curious than anything... but if it is skink only then that could certainly foil your plans as it seems that guy won't fill the role without being super mobile.
cloak of feathers is skink on foot only.
also if i were you i realy wouldn't take so much on your slaan, i dont think that it will make its points back.
It is true that the cloak is skink only. Also, banehead and blood statuette of spite are both enchanted items, so you can't have them on the same character.
I too think relying on stegadons vs WoC is risky. A couple gateways get off and you are in a big hole. And at 2k points having all your eggs in so few baskets will make the game quick one way or the other.
Have fun though, whats the worst that can happen.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
The worsed happened,i lost.lol
The turning point in the game happened when we had both our strongest units in combat. My temple gaurd with my slann lost combat by one point,but thats nothing to worry about with cold blooded right...wrong...i rold 6-6-5 he pursued with knights,so 3d6 and caught me was just bad luck on my side.
We are going to have a legendary battles game, maybe this weekend. IM looking forward to it alot. Im using my lizardmen as the bigger chunk and my greenskinz as the ally. any ideas on how to use them,i know he will be using warriors of chaos again but not sure of the other army yet. i havnt got all the models one might want but so you know the models i have a roughly...
saurus wariors,skinks,kroxigors,stegadons,priests,chiefs,chameloen,scar vet,slann
boss on boar,boos on foot,night goblin,fanatics,orc boys,black orcs,spider riders,a troll,a chariot
think thats about it
Did you forget that your slann was a BSB and you would get to reroll that break test?
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
