Such camaraderie would inspire a brofist between even Khorne and Slaanesh.

Fighting a friend's Dark Eldar tomorrow, 1500 points. Here's my list:


Chaos Lord: Mark of Slaanesh, Burning Brand of Skalathrax, Bike, Sigil of Corruption, Lightning Claw, Melta Bombs

Noise Marines x5: Blastmaster, Rhino
Noise Marines x5: Blastmaster, Rhino
Noise Marines x10: 2x Blastmaster, Icon of Excess

Havocs x7: Autocannon x4
Obliterator
Obliterators x2

Bikers x5: 2x Flamer
Heldrake: Baleflamer

Aegis Defense Line: Quad Gun



And BOOM goes the dynamite!


I'm anticipating a Raider, 2 Venoms, 1-2 units of Scourges, maybe a unit of Wracks, one of those big floating guys (Cronos?), one of their jetfighters, and not sure what else. Oh, a unit of Incubi. Maybe Mandrakes.

That seems... pretty well-kitted to kill DE and roast them in their open-topped vehicles. A Talos/Cronos might give you trouble, but you have enough high-S to bring it down eventually.

Sweet, thanks Mossy.

I was also thinking of replacing the 2 small units of Noise Marines with 2 10 man Mark of Khorne CSM in a Rhino, only bolters. Can double tap/counter attack or bolt pistol and charge. No S8 small blast though. Bolters seem like they can do work against Dark Eldar.

Thing about Khornate Rhino-riders--they don't have the mobility to catch or be the one to get the assault against a good Dark Eldar player's units.

Hmm, that's a good point. That small blast will hit them wherever they are.

Pulled off a victory with the list playing my first Maelstrom of War mission ever. I like the objective cards. You can get screwed, but you can also get lucky. Gambling/probabilities, it's why we roll the dice!

Autocannon Havocs with Champ on Quad Gun = MVU (most valuable unit). They wrecked two Raiders and shot 9 Incubi off the table. 12 S7 shots, 4 of them twin-linked and can choose a separate target (Quad Gun).

Blastmasters were awesome when they hit. I think 1/2 of my Blastmaster shots scattered onto nothing. Those that did hit obviously erased infantry. 2 units of Scourges with 4x Lances were their primary targets. The Heldrake cleaned up any Scourges that didn't die to Blastmaster fire.

Lelith was HQ, along with Drazhar and the Incubi. One Incubus and Drazhar survived the autocannon fire and assaulted a lone noise marine locked in a previous combat and killed him. That was basically his only contribution. Lelith and 10 Wyches charged my Lord + 5 Bikers. I think I could have made much better use of my Flamers/Burning Brand. I chose to flame a Venom loaded with 5 Kabalites hoping to wreck it, instead of flaming and charging Lelith's unit. Not sure what I was thinking, as I could have gotten a few kills before the combat. Poison shooting wiped out 4 Bikers, leaving the Champ and Lord. Champ killed the Wych champion, rolled a 1 on Boon table! Only boon roll of the game . After 4 turns Lelith and friends killed the Lord/Biker. Heldrake killed her with a vector strike.

The Obliterators were great. Got first blood taking down a raider with lascannons using the unit of 2. They died after 2 turns but inflicted other casualties as well. The lone Obliterator nailed his deep strike and wiped a unit of Scourges with a heavy flamer.

I won by 5 or 6 points, I think.

Take-away thoughts:

Autocannon Havocs again prove their worth. Combining them with the Quad Gun either adds 4 TL shots when 8 weren't enough, or shoots something else entirely. It's the closest thing to Split Fire we'll ever have.

Mark of Slaanesh gave my Noise Marines the initiative to strike simultaneously with a lot of his units. Although, they needed 6s to wound so things took a while.

Wyches aren't so hot, or at least weren't today. All of the wounds inflicted on the Champ/Lord were done by Lelith. The wyches just couldn't hurt T5 easily enough. T4 is at least a 1/3 chance.

Venoms are fucking legit. Lots of shooting from a Venom + 5 Kabalites.

HAIL CHAOS! SLAANESH IS GONNA DO STUFF TO YOUR ELFY SOULS!
