A blob of summoned lesser daemons. Made of crap, but there are occasions they have been surprisingly good. Raping mobs of boyz, and gaunt swarms. And just tarpitting the scary stuff.

I have an entire list based around the following unit.
Chaos lord, mark of tzeentch, deathscreamer, combimelta. Attached to a squad of 7 chosen with 5 plasmaguns in a rhino. I know that chaos is not meant to be shooty, and that with this much plasma and a demon weapon there will be quite a bit of self inflicted injury. But when a rhino pulls up near a demon prince or a mc or a squad of oblits, and fries the whole lot with one salvo, it makes the game worth it even if i still loose.

Sadly not

I picked up some Marines someone had done as Thousand Sons and reclaimed them with new Bolters and a new paint job. I'll have to take some pics if I get a chance

Its nice to see that some people still take units for the love of a theme or just the look of certain models.

Going over the Army List Section here at Heresy can sometime be disheartening as people sometimes argue over 5 badly spent points lol.

When people go to the army list section its because they want to argue about that stuff, the fluffy lists usually aren't put up there, people just use them.

with IG I refuse to use Valkyries/Vendettas/ or Vets.

I know, its supposed to be about what I should take, not what I don't take.

Instead I use platoons. With Grenade Launchers. Effectively. (I get to combine them now, with commissars for an extra plus. )

My stupidly equipped BW.
Here is a picture.

Yes that's right it has 4 big shootas and a lobber, somehow that lobba never fails to kill something though. it's getting especially good at spalatting devestators.

Coming in at about 155 points and having no meq ability it's pretty pants.

I tend to field it in anything upwards of 1500 points.

Tau Sniper Drones.

They are just too damn cool! I love the idea of a guy sitting in his little cave looking and listening for targets, then telling his drones to fire rail shots across the field, and puncturing the poor soul who thought he had good armor.

Plus they look cool as hell.

Vendettas. Against good armies, they just get shot down too early to accomplish anything, but the model is so pretty I have to use it.
