I am thinking about some upgrades to my Khorne army and I have heard many times that Marauders are essential.
The only point in having marauders, I can see, is a cheap fast cav with flails as a flanking unit (in a block of 5 I think), I am not sure is this the way everyone sees them.
I can't see much point of having marauder infantry. Am I missing something?
For a Khorne list, infantry are probably not the best choice. They are there for Static Cres mainly, and Khorne rely more on Kills to win.
Cav however, being fast and having Flails for a high S, can make decent flankers whilst your main units of Knights and Warriors go straight in to the front of the enemy. Also they can be used to go after units which the enemy positions in an attempt to distract your Frienzied units.
Well it all depends on your playstyle. I myself run a Khorne list which is more infantry based: a block of marauders on foot, with an exalted in them. In both flanks of the marauders I deploy my warriors (so the marauders will take charges or charge and provide static CR, while then the warriors countercharge, or deal with other units with the help of my chariots). I also have a unit of 5 marauder horsemen, who then go with the knights, for support or whatever the situation calls for.
I have three regular shooting heavy opponents (owie), so i tend to use m. horsemen to reach my opponents lines quickly, and the infantry as a meat-shield for my warriors...unless my opponent gets a big hill terrain (double owie)...
Thanks for that.
I think I am gonna invest in a marauder cav. to support my knights. So far I tried warhounds to do that, and they didn't performed too well (for the points I can't complain). Next time I try marauders.
I like the idea of having high static CR with conjunction of high kills from warriors, that could be a nice combo, but at the moment I am using more minotaurs, and marauder inf would only slow me down.
Use marauder horsemen to pull units into your frenzied units.... mmmm
