Default Abaddon,Chaos Lord or Sorcerer?

Hey everybody. I'm going up against Tau soon and I've 3 HQs to use and I don't know which one to use. Though I just LOVE using Abaddon, I don't think he is appropriate at a 1000 pts. Anyway, just tell me which you guys think I should use, and if you don't mind, also try to tell me the wargear and/or phychic powers.

That's it. I ordered Fabious Bile not to long ago, I should get him next week. But now, that's it.

All I know is that you have Abbadon. That (if I can count) ain't 3.

You could always take the Slaanesh Sorc with Lash.....

Personally, I like the Daemon Prince but if you don't have one, go with the Lord.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

True, I don't have a Daemon Prince (yet). But the Lash of Submission idea sounds great, but also the lord can beat up everybody, 'cause I usualy give him bloodfeeder, and that could tear Tau apart. Still undecided. But Abaddons out of the question.

I would go Soreceror and base my army around Death Guard and Slannesh as my god. It would make it darn near impossible for the Tau to beat you in HtH once you got there. A single Death Guard marine can tear apart an entire squad of Tau FW in HtH and his T5/FNP will ensure that he gets there through the Tau Str5 weapons. Good luck!



"The warrior who acts out of honor cannot fail. His honour is duty itself. Even his death - if it is honourable - is a reward and can be no failure, for it has come through duty. Seek honour as you act, therefore, and you will know no fear."
