Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm starting with chaos
at the moment i've got:
12 warriors with shield
12 warriors with aw and a shield on the back (so I can use them if I want too)
(converting a chaos dragon)
I want to have a good force, but don't have a clue on how to start. I know I should get some marauders, but can somebody help me turn this into an army???
I hate to break this to you...but the bloodthirster cant be feilded in an army with a hellcannon.Their from 2 different lists. Since that means you spend 40$ out of your new army on something that cant be used,if you have them in the box try to return one. Some games stores can be really stingy but ive found some that will let a new player who accidently bought something exchange it. IMO its a better policy too since you get a customer comming back to your store but meh
Back to the list anyways,looks like youve gott a powerful starting force of warriors and knights. I would reccomend:
1 box of warriors(trust me you'll need them)
2 boxes of marauders
1 box of wolf riders. It may sound weird,but if you dont put the goblins on them they become chaos hounds. At alot cheaper
The warriors will form the core of your army. The marauders give support because every powerful army(bar bretts and OK) need to take cheaper units to boost their numbers. The chaos hounds will make sure frenzy doesnt affect your units.
Am I lucky i got the cannon from my parents
anyway, If I want to I can switch them so it's not such a big prob
thanks for the help!
I like that wolf rider idea
Isn't a bloodthirster a deamonic general? Unless you're playing 3k with a lord, you cant field him in a mortal army. Thats two blocks of bloodletters and a unit of furies minimum. (You can convert the furies as the models suck. Take kroot with harpie wings for example, but the possibilities are infinite.)
asquabbling they squandered and gambled
till dawn did freeze their drunken dice
I'm not taking the thirster till late in the game, when he doesn't have to be the general (thinking of a chaos lord)
anyway, I came up with this 1000 point list:
mark of khorne
mark of khorne
5 knights of chaos
mark of khorne
still have a few points, does anybody know what to do with them?
help appreciated! (again)
Split the warhounds in to 2 units of 5. You might aslo consider bringing in more marked warriors instead of knights,1k is a bit small for even undivided chaos knights.
I like th knights they are gutsy at 1000. anyway at at point your opponent a probably 1 warmachine so its ok.
and it will make the list cheaper for him to buy.
I would drop the additional weapons (use your other Warrior unit) and chosen status from Warriors (-99 points). Add one Warrior (+15 points). Add standard and musician (+18 points). -> you free up 66 points
I'd also drop chosen status from Knights (-70 points) Drop Knight champion (-53 points). Give Steed to Exalted (+16 points). -> you free up 107 points
41 + 66 + 107 = 214.
How much is the MoK? Is 214 enough for a unit of 10 Warriors w/Mok, shield and additional hand weapon?
If you need more points, drop Exalted down to Aspiring. You may also be able to buy a standard and musician for the Marauders with the points that frees up.
1 mounted Champion
12 Warriors of Khorne w/shield w/standard w/musician
10 Warriors of Khorne w/shield w/additional hand weapon
4 Knights of Khorne w/standard w/musician (champion goes here)
16 Marauders w/shield w/light armor (w/standard w/musician?)
2 x 5 Warhounds
Not entirely sure what the Berserker sword does. Might drop it in favor of a great weapon. And now that your hero is mounted, the Enchanted Shield is not quite as useful (you get higher AS from being mounted, and you don't get the extra +1 that infantry gets from shield).
I'd agree a greatweapon is not only in many situations better than the berzerker sword but costs over 30 points less. Alternativly a halberd is an even better choice!
