Kill off his Rhinos before he can do anything with them wih your Las. One hit per turn average... plus you have your Razorback, so average 2 hits per turn... one failure to damage every three turns... 50% of penetrating hits... I'd say they'd all be dead in four turns on the outside, unless he's incredibly lucky. Your Ven. Dread should peg his other vehicle with its las...

Great battle report, I really loved the part in turn 2 where the guy with a wolf skin arm wrestled a chaos dreadnought, that was sweet.

Er, wait, am I in the wrong forum? :eek: :eek: :)

Actually that looked like a pretty good army, as deceiver said just concentrate fire on the rhinos, one they're gone there isnt much letf for you to do but to pick off the rest of the vehicles and fight each squad one at a time, using you're units in unison with combined charges. Remeber that you hav a slight advantage becuae you are defending, you could if you want quickly move out of the way of one of his units and just leave it stranded in the open to be shot at. Always remeber the fire control rule with the long fangs, its very useful especialy in situations like this.
overall nice army.

Glory to Russ!

When its two close combat armies fighting, let them come to you in his rhinos, blow up as many of them as you can. Dump your own rhinos except for one, you need all the blood claws you can get. Take out the bikes too, you can get 6 blood claws and a power weapon for the price of 3 bikes. With the long fangs either make em all plasma cannons or all missile launchers or a combo of both. Deck out your squads of grey hunters with power weapons and power fists. For the pred get all lascannons. That should be able to help you kill this *****.

Yes kill the dirty rhinos. And um, no offense, but this is battle reports, not army lists questions( next time post in army lists or something or tatics

Are his marines beserker's? (as you mentioned it was a khorne army) If they are, they should just rush straight out of the rhino's with blood frenzy. If not, its not really a khornate army at all (I'm not sure if there are rules preventing you from having a khorne lord wuith out any khorne troops)

Khorne beserkers go on a frenzy on a 1 ora 2 even if they are in vehicles, and will disembark before moving. Hide ur guys behind cover, wait till they come out of the rhino, blood frenzy blablabla, shoot them, charge with blood claws, the end. I would suggest not blasting the rhino and instead going for the dreadnought, predator, and lord, as khorne are fast enough without their rhino. (also note that blood frenzy makes them move towards the nearest enemy, so if it just happens to be something that would smash them to bits then byebye)

Khorne are better than SW in hand to hand, so shoot them.

I would swap the Bloodclaws for more Greyhunters. Use your bikes to draw his Blood frenzied Troops in the wrong direction. Kill his Vehicles with your heavy support so he cannot claim quarters with Heavy Support in basic missions. Use your brain! Additionally, charging into a Khorne army is not the best idea, hodl your ground.

lol no their not they are at least equal to them in combat
and for the army list i would say that that is a good list except that u need much more ' tooling' up your wolf lord. dont get artificier armour as it will be negated into 4+ with chainaxes anyway, so what do u want? well i would go for dual master crafted lightning claws with belt of russ and wolf pelt to get a charing bonus when u counter attack them. of course, with my tooled up mark of the wulfen wolf lord(sorry vanilla SW players, only allowed in 13th company :D) i own any berserker that comes close

I play SW and I might not be as good as Logan Grimnar but I think my advice will help. I've never played khorne but I know that I hate any chaos. You should use a small unit of grey hunters to take the blunt of the first charge and then use all of your blood claws to run in and get their 2+ charge attack. You might do better to put more lascannons in your long fangs instead of the missile launchers or at least put a couple heavy bolters in to get those 3 S5 shots. You also might not want to spend so much on transports and invest in more infantry or heavy weapons.

Maybe dump the Fast Attack Crap and load up on heavy support to back up your blood claws? I have to think of ways to beat ChadfromCanada and this is one of my options... he's a Chaos Undivided player but I'd still use that tactic. Just dump all the fast attack.

Worst case scenario... politely ask for the help of your specialist Chapter brethren... The Grey Knights... we don't mind putting in our two cents against Chaos every now and then. Not even berzerkers can best the Grand Master in CC... oh that Nemesis Force Weapon... and Holocaust...
