Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ladies and gentlemen, I am presented with a rather peculiar quandary. I have roughly 65 bucks to spend on models for my army's rare slots. Giants are out of the question as I already have two for my Ogre Kingdoms (and are easily stated as being chaos giants). So I am down to the choice of A) Dragon Ogre Shaggoth Hellcannon C) 2 boxes of spawn
I have a small selection of models at my disposal for an army but I am very cavalry based with 4 units of 5 knights, 3 units of 5 marauder horsemen with flails, 2 units of 5 warhounds, and 2 units of 12 chaos warriors for some infantry if needed. Throw in a lord on daemonic mount, tzeench lord on disk, a jugger lord, and the four classic chaos sorcs, you have all the WOC models i own.
Please help me out, I cannot for the life of me decide on one.
You purchase the Corpse Cart from the Vampire Counts range of models. Then you chaosify it with some skulls, chains, Icons, star banners and the like. Then use it as a warshrine.
"The more choices you force the opponent to make, the better the chance for you to capitalize on his mistakes"
I would prefer to do as little of converting as possible. I dont trust my skill level yet.
converting a chaos warshrine is easy. throw in a couple dozen spare skulls from your sprues, apply elmers glue to hole them down, add paint and spiky bits. You can do it, promise.
yes I understand it would be easy but I have some other ideas for warshrines that I do not want to bring out of the planning stages yet. My choices right now are spawn, shaggoth, or hellcannon.
(my idea is to use the inquisitor model in the chaos range, a series of chains, and a few chaos warriors holding onto the chains herding him into battle)
I have a cannon and a giant, and spawn... so right now i'd really go for a shaggoth. This is the way I look at it, first ask yourself why you are playing. I like to collect the fun stuff, the really cool looking models. And you don't get much cooler then a shaggoth. So if your really stuck for choices, just pick whichever one you like the look of......*coughs*(shaggoth)
the shaggoth is a big contender I'll admit that, but he presents the problem of GW or XHW?
that and he would fit my orriginal theme (before I broke down and bought some infantry) of not fielding anything below movement 7
I'm a fan of the hellcannon. Especially with some of the 8ed changes coming up. It should continue to deal out some serious damage. The model is a BEAST to get together, though. I spent about 45 minutes with a dremel cleaning up the lines and warping on the barrel. Once complete, though, it was a lot of fun to paint. Finally, what self respecting Chaos Army wouldn't want a little squat of runts to toss around in their off time?
what was it again? great minds think alike?
But for you question; definately a Hell Cannon! With the new changes in 8th he's going to be more of a monster than he allready is!
Causing miscasts on a lucky misfire roll and more importantly A TON OF HURT in CC.
Hell Cannon for sure!
hell cannon does seem quite tempting with the miscast misfire result. I have no problems with the model itself (not to mention I have a zero tolerance level for shoddy work from GW, not at their prices)
I have two hangups about the hellcannon howerver: it seems best suited for an infantry heavy list, which I clearly am not. And a friend is rather furvent about the fact that the hellcannon is the worst artillary piece ever made. Though he is a bit of a 'negative nancy' it none the less puts a bit of doubt in my mind about the model.
