Right on! Then for today, you shall be Kharn the Affirmer.

Praise be to the dark gods.

The main problems with daemon engines in the past has been that they were almost exclusively khornate in 40k. Epic had a bunch from other gods which weren't moved to 40k including the plague tower of nurgle, silver tower and firelord of tzeentch, the questor scout titan of slaanesh. Compared to these there were 5+ khornate epic daemon engines cauldron of blood, cannon of khorne, death dealer, brass scorpion, tower of skulls, Lord of battles (now the Lord of skulls), blood reaper, and doom blaster.





There's a ton they could have done.

Just for what that's worth.
Yeah, that's a fun one. Then the question is whether to double down on AP3 and take advantage of that high I with a lightning claw, or to grab a power axe/fist to balance out the torrent AP3 you're already bringing for versatility. Depends on the unit you're outflanking in, I suppose.

20 CSM with Icon of Excess, 2 Meltaguns, VotLW and Champion with Lightning Claw, because you're a real man. Lord gets a Claw because I6 is great and I couldn't tell you the last time I actually saw 2+ armour on the table other than my own Assault Terminators, which I bought, built, undercoated, fielded twice then shelved because 2+ armour isn't worth shit for dick in my meta in the current edition.

I don't know why horde CSM appeals so much to me, I just think it's really cool and better than people give it credit for.

You know the solution right guys? Fuck 40k and come over to 30k. We've got legion rules for everyone (well, the Thousands amongst you might have to wait until later this year, but still) a plethora of special units, dark Mechanicum and ways to add varied cultists to your lists. Plus, as the timeline progresses, you can bet there'll be plenty of that witchy-poo goodness you heretics love to go around.

when the Thousand Sons get their place in 30k i will definately be thinking long and hard about building an army for it, especially if they have all the different rules for each of the cults. the only real thing that would stop me is the colour change as all my Thousand Sons are in post heresy blue.

So i don't know if i want to start a whole new army (i should rephrase that, i don't Know if my wife would let me start a whole new army)LOL

Orkz - 30W 14L
Black Templar - 6W 5L
Thousand Sons - 7W 8L
Tzeentch Daemons -4W 4L

I'm re-exploring chaos at the moment and really enjoying it so far. The Path to Glory campaign is (Age of Sigmar Style) a different way to play that is actually fun, and my 'meta' are all people who have no issues with adjusting the allies chart to make sense, such as traitor chapter type marines, traitor guard, orkish cultists etc.

Um... FW is owned by GW, so I'm not sure they'll get much of the vibe off of that one.
