Abaddon the Despoiler challenges you!

Abaddon the Despoiler challenges you!

I’ve got a complete boner over Abaddon lately; this guy is the ultimate beat stick unit in 40k and I think is perhaps the best single close combat model in the entire game. To show why Abaddon is the Warmaster I think going to do some 1v1 challenges and test Abaddon’s mettle. Behold the Warmaster! Before Abaddon starts getting into scrapes lets see what Abaddon can do. Abaddon is a super charged S.M Captain and is basically

Army Lists: Chaos Daemons ‘Kinky Fire Dogs’ – 2,000 points

Army Lists: Chaos Daemons ‘Kinky Fire Dogs’ – 2,000 points

Not written an army list for a bit (though have been working on Eldar lists), thought I would have a crack at Chaos Daemons as a few dudes as my local club have started Chaos Daemons and they have spurred me on. Chaos Daemons ‘Kinky Fire Dogs’ – 2,000 points HQ Keeper of Secrets – mastery level 3 & 2 x greater rewards Keeper of Secrets – mastery level 3 & 2 x greater rewards Troops 10 x Pink Horrors 10 x Pink Horrors 10 x Pink Horrors 10 x Pink Horrors Fast Attack 11 x Flesh Hounds 11 x Flesh Hounds Heavy Support Daemon Prince – daemon of slaanesh, warp forged armour, daemonic flight & 2 x greater rewards Daemon Prince – daemon of slaanesh, warp forged armour, daemonic flight & 2 x greater rewards Daemon Prince – daemon of slaanesh, warp forged armour, daemonic flight & 2 x greater rewards Total: 1,997 Sorry about the silly ass list name, couldn’t think of anything good. Yeah, I know, I suck at finding cool names. I do not like horde armies and prefer fast moving shooty armies which are either elite i.e Ravenwing, mech such as Dark Eldar or big ass monsters. Tyranids can knock out many o big monster, but I am not interested in them and found a liking for Chaos Daemons a year ago. Now I know KoS (Keeper of Secrets) aren’t awesome, but with some good luck (luck isn’t a valid tactic, but it is what Chaos Daemons codex goes on as everything is random) the Keepers should get invisibility power (gives stealth and shrouding) on the telepathy psychic power table. Hopefully some good greater rewards will do too such as 4+ feel no pain and 3+ armour save, the extra wound gift will be handy too. The Horrors are there just to camp on objectives and lay down some covering fire.

Thinking Ahead: Hobby Roadmap

Thinking Ahead: Hobby Roadmap

Ok, so I haven’t posted in awhile, been busy with some dietary changes and some extra workout routines, haven’t had time for 40k. But, I’ve been following the blogosphere and thinking about the next year of 40k purchases. I’m beginning to get a roadmap of the purchases I’ll be making. I have a backburner plan to do a pre-heresy army, a sort of slow, methodical project. Of course, FW’s shipping prices make buying a few hundred dollars’ worth a better deal. My only dilemma is what army to build. I had originally wanted to do Thousand Sons after reading Prospero Burns, but honestly I’ve lost interest in the color scheme and particular modeling theme. The book was great but I don’t think I could do something creative enough to stand with the brilliant 1k sons themed armies out there. If they do custom models for them, I will probably get a few to put in my CSM.

Hobby Injuries?

Hobby Injuries?

At the weekend I was cutting up some guitar wire to make some personal touches to my Vindicators or Sonicators as I call them. I was using a pair of sharp scissors to cut through the wire and instead cut my finger.Not only am I a noob for doing this school boy slice and dice error, I am actually an ultra noob as I have cut myself three times! The third I didn’t realise until today when I removed the plaster. I’m like Edward Scissorhands or something! Has anyone else got any hobby injuiries? Spill the beans and share, I don’t want to feel like a total hobby noob on my own!

Top Chaos Daemon Units

Top Chaos Daemon Units

Want to know the best units in the Chaos Daemons codex? Then take a butchers below. * These units are not ranked in any particular order 1. Bloodthirster The Bloodthirster is the ultimate bad ass and taker of names. The big red dude rocks with a typical monstrous creature profile and brings a mighty WS10, BS10, W5, I9 and A6 – this dude is seriously laying down the hurt. The Bloodthirster comes with a 3+ armour save, lash of khorne (S6 AP2 pistol) and axe of khorne (wound of 6+ is instagib). As the ‘Thirster is a daemon of khorne it gets furious charge, S7 smashy. Bloodthirster has options of daemonic rewards; best taking a couple of greater rewards as they give survivable buffs. If you take the normal greater reward, which is the blade of blood, then the Bloodthirster gets the rampage special rule (+D3 attacks if out numbered in close combat) and would get

X vs Y: Flesh Hounds vs Seekers

X vs Y: Flesh Hounds vs Seekers

In the Chaos Daemons codex there are two units which really give me a boner; Flesh Hounds and Seekers. Ok I lie about the Seekers, I do not think they are that interesting. I think they are ok so don’t get me wrong, just I see the internet saying how awesome they are and not a lot of people seem to give the Flesh Hounds a second thought. I think it is time for a deep look, return of the X vs Y! Flesh Hounds The humble Flesh Hound costs the same points as a normal Tactical Marine, you get a profile almost the same except WS5, W2, A2, LD7 and a might 6+ save. The Flesh Hound is also unit type beasts and beasts are pretty damn awesome in 6th ed. Naturally the Flesh Hounds have the daemon special rule so they get a 5+ invulnerable save and also have the fear special rule – also has the daemonic instability rule which means auto pass pinning, morale and fear tests, and if the Daemons lose combat the unit suffers one wound (no saves allowed) for every point failed leadership by. Do not forget roll a double 1 and all models return but roll a double 6 and the shit will really hit the fan. Flesh Hound is a Daemon of Khorne and has the furious charge rule and has hatred (Daemons of Slaanesh). Flesh Hounds also have the scout special rule 🙂 Only wargear Flesh Hounds get is the Collar of Khorne which gives

Heretic: Thinking about Huron Blackheart

Heretic: Thinking about Huron Blackheart

I’ve successfully assembled almost 35 Zombies/Cultists, and that got me thinking. I have wanted to try some CSM lists with Huron Blackheart, but I want to bring my Nurgle contingent along. I have come up with a list that includes a sprinkling of my Death Guard (ok its a Sorcerer and 30 Cultists) to go along with Huron and my Red Corsairs. The idea is 2 blobs, one fearless from Blackheart, the other caddying the nurgle Sorcerer (note, I might shave 15 points and give him a spell familiar), 4 Rhinos full of Marines, 2 squads of Havocs, and then some Heldrakes. Type Unit Cost HQ Huron Blackheart 160 HQ Sorcerer 60 Nurgle 15 Force Axe 0 Mastery Level 3 50 Sigil of Corruption 25 Palanquin of Nurgle 40 Troops Cultists 30 Cultists 130 3 Heavy Stubbers 15 Troops Cultists 30 Cultists 130 3 Flamers 15 Troops Chaos Space Marines 140 10 Marines Power Axe 15 Gift of Mutation 10 2 Melta Guns 20 Rhino 35 Troops Chaos Space Marines 10 Marines 140 Lightning Claw 15 Plasma Pistol 15 Gift of Mutation 10 2 Plasma Guns 30 Rhino 35 Troops Chaos Space Marines 5 Marines 75 Power Sword 15 Gift of Mutation 10 Plasma Gun 15 Rhino 35 Havoc Launcher 12 Troops Chaos Space Marines 5 Marines 75 Power Maul 15 Gift of Mutation 10 Plasma Gun 15 Rhino 35 Havoc Launcher 12 Fast Attack Heldrake 170 Baleflamer Fast Attack Heldrake 170 Baleflamer Heavy Support Havocs 5 Havocs 75 4 Autocannons 40 Heavy Support Havocs 5 Havocs 75 4 Autocannons 40 This is admittedly more take two, move on than I like, particularly in lacking a big threat. I can infiltrate the Rhino with the 10 man melta squad, allowing me to be reactive and aggressive against heavy unit deployment. If I get 1-2 more infiltrates, i can get my other rhinos even closer to my opponent, fulfilling their purpose faster and placing them better. Two squads of Havocs sit in back along with the Sorcerer and his blob in cover, Lord and his blob deploy more aggressively, depending on the mission. 2 min size CSM squads, not likely to kill all that much, but can tie up a unit in combat (I take ccw/bp on the normal guys).

Soul Grinder – any good for skyfire?

Soul Grinder – any good for skyfire?

The Soul Grinder is one of the units in the Chaos Daemons codex which can have skyfire. At the moment the internet is going bat shit crazy about how awesome the Soul Grinder is for smacking flyers out the sky. The Soul Grinder costs 135 points and is a BS3 13-13-11 walker. As standard it comes with the harvester cannon which is heavy 3 S7 AP4 and has the skyfire rule. The Grinder has a few others things too which it can get from wargear/daemonic gifts, though we will worry about them later as they are not the point of this article. On average the Soul Grinder will hit 1.5 times when firing the harvester. To make it easier I’ll round it up to 2. Here’s the figures for shooting against armour value: AV10 – 66% chance to damage – 1.32 causes damage AV11 – 50% chance to damage – 1 causes damage AV12 – 33% chance to damage – 0.66 causes damage I am not going to do any higher than AV12 as the article is about skyfire for the Soul Grinder and I do not think there are any flyers which are AV13 – if there are then please let me know and I’ll add. So a single Soul Grinder doesn’t have much odds against a single flyer
