Idea for a chaos list

Post  Roland on Fri Dec 21, 2012 10:54 pm

So..... variations on the SM "Mech" list worked great in 5th, and still do decently. I've always felt the key to that list was a lot of cheap (~100 pt/ea) units that have a decent high str (2+ Str 7-8 shots). For 600 pts you could take 6 support units, add in a cheap Libby for all purpose HQ, and you have 800 pts to spend on troops.

The issue I've had with the Chaos list so far is all the "decent" stuff costs 175-200 pts, and isn't that resilient. The Forgefiend, Defiler, et al run high on points, and even the "cheap" choices aren't much better. So I tried my hand at a chaos "mech" list. I believe the helblade is 125 in IA:Aeronautica, so the list is actually 1672. That'd give me 77 points to fill out the Chaos squads with Icons, marks, etc. It's got a lot of Str 7 to deal with light armor, and you have the lasC sponsons on the preds as well as the CSM's melta to deal with heavy armor. Huron could be swapped for a cheap Sorceror so save some points.

I like it, I think you can deal with a lot of things, and you can potentially infiltrate those melta-weilding rhino's.

Also, Huron is ... cool.

i think its a fairly good list. lots of melta. not too many eggs in any one basket.

the hell blades will be eye catch buzzards that may distract well beyond their pay scale..

if you are wanting to order hellblades... i need to do a forge world order soon. Smile

I think the plan was to do an order shortly after christmas, once everyone had their presents and budgets worked out.
