All right, then: Plague Hulk from Forgeworld, for even fewer points than a kitted-out SG, with your CSM. Still get Shrouded, even!'

...most of your points do stand, though. If you want a Jack of Melee/Shooting to bridge the gap between the Queen of Shooting that is a FF and Queen of Melee that is the Maulerfiend... Defilers are playable, for a sizeable chunk of a low points match. Those are still S10 attacks in close combat, etc.

CSM Plog, Tactica

OK, I have just re-read the rules for the Plague Hulk and I can see the point. It does lose Fleet anddoesn't have 'It will not die'.. But it is AV 13 and Shrouded.. but it does have a Template attack that is as good as the twin-linked Heavy Flamer... which is the surprisingly fun gun that the Defiler Carriers (It Destroys Elder Jetbikes!)

EDIT: Just realised that they have the same amount of attacks in CC. Never Mind!

Well, I'm going to need to update this to account for Khorne: Daemonkin, since there's a pretty large overlap on the Venn diagram here--and I'd go so far as to say that it's made Khorne a semi-competitive, actually fun army to play!

(almost mis-typed "a fun army to lay"--nope, it's not Slaaneshi...)

Also a note on FAQ changes: Cypher can no longer join a squad of non-infiltrators, RAW, so his usefulness has dropped, unless you're taking him with his already-infiltrating 3 squads of Chosen formation that lets you have the "old-fashioned" Chosen of prior codexes.

Also going to do my best to link to the series of tacticas that several forumites are sprinting to post more of, and going to update my old Be'lakor tactica (which was posted on another thread, not ever here) with new, fresh photos.

CSM Plog, Tactica
