Default master crafted crozius arcanum

It would be pretty much pointless.

Master crafted = reroll 1 miss/tuen for 15 points.

Litanies of Hate (basic chaplain ability) = reroll all misses for free

Yes you can. With litanies of hate you can reroll all misses on the turn you charge. As for other subsequent turns of locked combat, the Master Crafted would allow you to reroll one miss.

Is it worth it? I dunno. It's your 15 points.

Didn't think of that. (I'm running on lack of sleep)

Anyhow it is possible (you just pay the 15 points, doesn't matter if the weapon was free or not) but I still don't think it's worth it.

Now, for your Librarian;s Force Sword...that's another story

I love how Games Workshop intended to make Librarians and Commanders more appealing choices in the new Codex, but just sort of reinforced having two chaplains as your HQ, because Litanies of Hate is quite possibly one of the best special rules in the game, especially for the relatively low cost of fielding a Chaplain.

I know Blood Angels players wept with joy ;-)
Of course, our Sanguinary High Priest's always had his own sort of litanies power, but it's an area of effect thing.

But yeah, furious charging death company rerolling misses....I believe the phrase is "Booyah!"

umm....why not just play World Eaters then? Yeah you don't get the rerolls, but your units of berserkers get 4 attacks on the charge.

Death Company get 4 attacks on a charge, (3 when not charging) jetpacks, feel no pain, and furious charge. And they;re dirty cheap ;-)

Besides, My brother plays Khorne sometimes...they suck mightily. No firepower and they have to blindly charge whatever;s closest. My blood angels have some awesome (but limited) assault capability, but we;re still marines. We can still field lascannon tac squads, HB/AC speeders and the like, and as long as my chaplain is alive, my DC can move wherever I want them to, not just running after the first unit they see.

My BA slaughter hsi world eaters regularly

Chaplains are just downright awesome. Possibly the single coolest unit in all of 40k.

Also, their models are just insane.

As for a MC Crozius, if you've got the 15 points to spend on it, chances are you're not allocating your points for maximum effect. That reroll probably won't pay for itself.

Now, stick those 15 points in a tac squad and get a lascannon, then let's talk. (lascannon may or may not be more points. i can't remember off hand)
