Hey guys, which upgrade do you think is the best for a Chaos Spawn?
I'm thinking between Bloodbeast of Khorne and Fiend of Slanesh.
Slaneesh is the upgrade u want. In fact i would say its hardly worth fielding a spawn if it hasnt gotten a slannesh upgrade... it will simply be too slow and thereby too unreliable to be usefull.
Bloodbeast for me, as I play khorne, so slaanesh would be unfluffy and strength 5 isn't that bad.
I agree that if you have a marked army, then for fluff reasons alone spawns should be marked to match. However looking at it from an unbiased perspective, Slannesh has to be the best. The other upgrades (+1S, Breath, poison) Just arent as good practically as the extra movement, considering the thing has a decent statline already, and being unbreakable is really its key rule.
Interesting that 'No Upgrade' isnt a poll option lol.
The extra D6" movement is invaluable to a unit that is so random. It can really get the Spawn moving.
So Slaanesh for me.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
i agree MoS is tha shiit on spawns... they can move up to 18" and that very long! i play Tzeentch but i prefer fiend of Slannesh over Firewyrm of Tzeentch!
Slaneesh is the only way for me. You have to get him moving :-) Now if there was a way to add an armor save or extra toughness we might have a debate on our hands.
