    Those damn pistoliers... that is just stupid.

    Get some of those warriors for me, eh? Of course, if there are any left after I take 'em.

    why not drop the pistoilers and get another unit of handguners. Monuvarabilty will not be needed as much in a small 500pts game. With 2 units of 10 handgunners and a hell blaster volley gun, you could probly do enough damage to just mop up any survivours when the enemy gets to you. The list looks quite good though, and fairly rounded

    Drop the Pistoliers? Never&#33;&#33;&#33;

    These guys can march block. And in 500 points thats awesome. They can also deliver a fatal blow to even Chaos Warriors with just a flank charge.

    -When marchblocking, I get 7 str4 AP shots that hit on 4&#39;s.

    -When flanking a unit, I get 12 str4 AP shots that hit on 4&#39;s

    They are also great character hunters and Warmachine hunters.

    That&#39;s nice, no army can beat every type of army. This army&#39;s weakness might be horde armies, but only my brother plays gobbos. And plus, he&#39;s testing out Cult of Slaanesh.

    Armies I will be playing against:

    -Chaos VERY few models
    -Slaanesh
    -Lizardmen
    -High Elves
    -Vamp Counts

    The only army I&#39;m worried about is Vamp Counts. Not panicking and causing fear isnt good for me. However, it&#39;s a slow army so I will get plenty of shots at him. And if I can my pistoliers behind his general, I dont believe any of his units will be marching

    The High Elves will die so easily to this army, T3 for every model and each model costs more then a new CD :wacko:

    :lol:

    anyway, nice list. dont drop the pistoliers, the manieverability makes them even more valuable in small games becuase in 2k, most armies will ave some fast cav to counter yours, but they wont here. you can march around etc and if u get charges with the swordmen and the pistoliers, bye bye.

    im not that big of a fan of the hb, maybe more hg instead, depends what you are like with misfire dice

    Hi....nice list. I would drop the hellblaster though and trade for a mortar or cannon and use the extra points for a stronger block of infantry.

    I agree...keep the pistoliers&#33;&#33;&#33; But in a 500k battle the pistoliers and the HB seem a bit &#39;cheesy&#39;.

    Just my thoughts.....

    In 500 points, you could consider the Hellbalster a bit &#39;cheesy&#39;. However, if my friends are gonna complain, they&#39;re retards. The choas player plays Khorne, I dont think anyone with a Hero Stat line for EACH model has the right to complain about cheesiness. My brother playing 12 lvls of Magic and 15 Fanatics has no right to complain about cheesiness.

    Every army has something that&#39;s considered cheese, just deal with it.

    -I even know a guy who played the "Tzeentch Khorne Lord" who had the Frenzy +2 STR weapon, MoT lvl4 wizard, 0+AS and 4+WS. Thats 6 Str 7 attacks for a lvl 4 invincible wizard.

    -My friend once played 6 Reaper Bolt Throwers in 1000 points. :blink: That&#39;s right, 6. Needless to say I lost that game.

    It&#39;s just part of the game. Whatever.
