Ben lust marines armie

Post  Guest on Thu Apr 16, 2009 1:58 pm

i will post pics soon but my slannesh army is coming along. i currently own 20 marines, 1 rino, and 10 possesed.
my overall plan will be to use termies to soack up fire, while my 10 marines and possed will march behind them using the rino as cover, while 8 noise marines stay back and hold an objective. i figured it was a solid plan but ineeded something crazey and fun. so i am scratch building a sorcer using the warhammer fantasy highelf sorcers building set. and i will use the lash spell i think it is called that and, i really like spawn models but they suck so i will use the spell that turns guys into a spawn, and my chapter is called the lust marines until i can think of something better. what do you think of the plan.

Question Very Happy

I like chaos terminators, so that sounds good. Using terminators to screen a rhino will generally slow a rhino down, unless the terminators roll a lot of 6s for their running. Terminators don't really screen marines all that well because if your enemy has AP 1 or 2 weapons he will shoot those at the terminators. If he has AP 4+ he will shoot them at whatever he wants. In fact, marines are better off screening terminators! Then your terminators at least get a +1 to their invulnerable saves. Your screen doesn't really do anything. Also, Lust Marines needs some work. I know it's Slaaneshy and all, but it doesn't have that ring to it IMO. How about Avarice of Horus? Emperor's Spawn? Cryptic Children?

ok ok i am just brain storming here, i know the name sucks but i am still developing the army, but i did get the couler scheme. ok i have another plan, i send my rhino up alone using smoke and terrain to keep it alive, leave the noise marines back to hold the home objective send the termies up the middle and the marines and the possesed to move across the way oppisite of the rino, causing the opponant to split firelanes. still just brainstorming Smile oh and i cannot decide on a heavy support choise scratch

Its always hard to decide on heavy for chaos.. because they are all really good.

Obliterators are one of the best heavy choices in the game.. they took a bit of a hit in the new chaos book, down a toughness and anti0infantry choices (autocannon/heavy bolter) but they are still awesome, especially at tank/termie hunting.

Vindicators are better for chaos because you can take Daemonic possession making them immune to stunned/shaken. Down is they are at -1 BS.. but when firing the template.. who cares!

Predators are good all around.. and can fill in a lack of anti-infantry or tank killing.

Defilers are fantastic.. you can go the hand to hand way and fleet the way across the field.

I dont really think you need havocs unless youve got points to spare or something. They cant objectives.. In a bigger game... I love taking a squad with autocannon or heavy bolters.. but never field them with lascannons .. they become crazy expensive and oblits are better in my opinion.

I dont know if your going to like the possessed. You might want to just stick with a basic squad of chaos marines with the mark of slaneesh. Possessed are very expensive and while they have an invul save and +1 strength, you cant take any special weapons for your champ which becomes a huge weakness. Yeah, you might roll rending or power weapons.. but they then become target number 1 for the enemey. I've used them 3 times since the new edition and they have done garbage everytime. I wish they were like the old edition..

For the same points, you can take marines with a MOS, a few special wepaons and a champ with a power sword in a rhino for about the same cost.. way better deal! Do you have possesed models already? You could probably alter the squads u a bit and spread the mutated guysaround a bit to form a couple regular mrines squads. As long as most of the units in the squad have bolters no one will give you flack for having a few mutated dudes..

another plan put 10 marines in a rino, 10 marines use the rino as cover, beside the rino the possesed come
noise marines stay back and hold the home objective and a predetor go tank hunting. i now i should have more rinos, but they are pricey money wise, what d you guys think of this plan. i will add more as i get more stuff but fore now this is it.

The problem with the predator is that it cannot move and shoot. the three lascannons are expensive and you should make sure it's set up to fire on most things at the start of the game so as not to waste the points by not shooting. The anti infantry used to be really good being able to drive around wasting troop squads but now needs to sit still to be effective. If you move you are wasting valuable shooting each turn.

A couple oblits would be better anti tank. I'm not sure what would be a better anti infantry for 100 points though. again it all comes down to how you want to play your army.

I would stay away from anything with aryan in the name. People can be a bit sensitive about Nazi-sounding names, go figure. The other one sounds ok.
