Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello all. I require a bit of input from you all about an upcoming project for my warriors.
Long story short, I will be using the old beasts of chaos beastmen heard box (12 gors and 8 ungors on 25mm bases) as a counts as unit of chaos marauders. Later on I may pick up a box of marauders themselves and inter-disperse them with the beasts. The idea is that they are mutated men of chaos. (as I plan on running them with MoT)
What do you all think of this idea and what are some ways you can think of for improving it?
IMO I think it is great to have a few conversions in any army, where it is applicable. The Vampire Counts army that has a dead unit of Empire swordsman all dead looking, the mutated Chaos warriors, etc. I think the beastmen conversions in a Chaos group would fit great!
You're not alone mate. It's how I was going to do my Marauders for my Tzeentch army. Cannon fodder!!! The only thing that was stopping me was that Gors/Ungors were fairly expensive.
I know, but thankfully my store still had one of the old boxes still in stock and that has a full unit of 20 for 35 bucks (without my prefered customer 20 percent off)
It's good to be the king
Yeah, I've got a unit of those left over from the days when I could use them as skirmishing allies. Meh, now they form up and count as marauders. One less unit to buy for 8th.
welp, just won myself 50 bucks worth of models from a pre-release tourney (hurray ogres) and I think I will be picking up a box of regular marauders and swaping the heads with the beastmen and intermingling them in the unit. Mmmm.... marauders of Tzeentch with handweapon and shield, that's one sexy set of 5+/5++ saves right there, and on the cheap too.
