Welcome to Librarium Online!
my friend once told me he saw a special list in a WD about an all raptor army. im not talking about using Night Lords and taking mostly raptors. I am talking about an all Raptor army. So is anyone interested in helping me make such a list? it could include things like basic raptors as troops, Lords and D. Princes as HQs and we could make up special units like Raptors that have mutated even further than normal ones, or Raptor havoc squads which can take extra sepcial weapons? anyone interested? anyone? :shifty:
a most evil and cunning idea. yet i think it would be declared "CHEESEY!!!!" at the mention of what it is comprised of. but very evil, and i like evil ideas. MWAHAHAHAHHAA!!!Originally Posted by impending slaughter
You tried to help on Codex: Necromancers, so the least I can do is offer you some assistance in return. I have to say, though, this army does present some major-league challenges. I can think of a few units:
HQ: Raptor Lord & Liuetenant, Winged Daemon Prince
Elite: Raptor Veterans
Fast Attack: Raptor Drop Strike Teams? Supercharged Raptors?
Heavy Support: Raptor Strike Squads (think Dark Eldar Scourges- Raptor Heavy Weapon Teams essentially), Some kind of Anti-Grav Tank? Or flying Daemon Engines?
The Grand Necromagus of the LO Codex: Necromancers Design Team.
The Supreme Lance Leader of the Codex: Wasters Design Team.
Cruelty has a Human Heart
And Jealousy a Human Face
Terror, the Human Form Divine
And Secrecy, the Human Dress
Dont forget, raptro cults often enslave Furies, so Furies can be used as well.
No daemon princes, I dont think they fit the fluff. I dont think vehicles really fit either. How about for heavy support we could use giant furies? Kind of like flying brood lords / mini greater daemons? Just a thought. Raptors could ride them maybe... I like the FA DS Raptor idea thoughOriginally Posted by Unseen Lurker
which FA idea did you like? or was it both of them? i think that Deep-striking Raptors should be an FA choice.
and for heroes, lets go with something like a Chaos Lord/Lieutenent stat line and some Raptor Abilities, like flight and Visage and Hit and Run. then we could make up some special wargear or abilities for these "Raptor Lords" (name?)
ok iwas thinking of this for a Raptor Lord
Daemonic Flight and Daemonic Visage come standard.
Has access to the armoury
this is basically a Chaos Lord. I redced its BS and increased its WS to reflect that Raptors get into CC more than they shoot. I also increased his base Strength. what do you think?
Winged Daemon Princes fit- Raptors are undivided and crave power, so the only real limiting thing for Hq is that they all need to have daemonic flight, daemonic visage, and the hit and run technique, though a daemon prince wouldn't be able to hit and run. As for the giant furies, furies are the weakest of the daemons because of their undivided status. They don't get much bigger unless you want a greater daemon, but that wouldn't work.
Anyways, so far for ideas we have the special rules:
-All Hq must have daemonic visage/flight/hit and run.
-Daemons other than furies may not be taken. You cannot take more furies than troop choice raptors. No unit may take a mark other than undivided.
-Only fast attack raptors can ds, or they get a bonus to deep striking or something.
-Elite raptors can purchase mutations- essentially raptor possessed.
- HS raptors may take heavy weapons as a havoc squad.
And then maybe have FA raptors be able to take extra assault weapons and stuff. This looks like a fairly easy codex to do- no like Codex Necros, as most of the stuff is laid out. We could probably make this more of an extra army list, like Night Lords or Iron Warriors, more than a full blown codex.
Edit: For the Raptor Lord, I think the normal chaos lord is stated well enough. Besides, he'd be too cheesy with daemonic strength.
