HQ - 280
  • Daemon Prince - 140
    Wings
    Mark Of Khorne
  • Daemon Prince - 140

    Mark Of Khorne
Troops - 570

  • Khorne Bezerker Squad - 285
    9 - Khorne Bezerkers
    Skull Champion
    Power Fist
    Rhino
  • Khorne Bezerker Squad - 285
    9 - Khorne Bezerkers

You might wanna drop A daemon Prince, and the Obliterators, and get 2 defilers? X]

You seem to like the Khorne Theme, and that would certainly add to it.

If not, i still think 2 HQ's is abit much at 1,000points. And Daemon Princes are better without MoK, so they can take a Psychic Power, Warptime being a brilliant one.

Drop the Zerks to a squad of 8 will help as well, give you 42 points to play with; For example you could give both Rhinos Extra Armour, a brilliant upgrade.

Good Warring.

Love the Blood God!!!

Also excited about a populated forum!

Defilers maybe an in the future upgrade, trying to limit the purchasing, (hence the wish to drop the Rhinos).

Trying to add some range/anti tank to help stop the Blood Angels onslaught (presently he's running a Baal, a Land Raider and a Rhino. Lot's of armor for 1K games, his squads (death company and assault marines) are basically an afterthought.

Revised,

Marthorian Legion - 960

HQ - 310

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Troops - 570

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 285
9 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 285
9 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist

Heavy Support - 150

Obliterator Cult Squad - 150
2 - Obliterators

40 Points available, thinking I'll bite the bullet and buy one Rhino, and give that Skull Champion Meltabombs.

Buying Rhinos sucks, but they are invaluable these days. Most would say they are mandatory. Your opponent does seem to have an inordinate amount of armoy for a 1000 point game, and a single unit of Obliterators might not do the job. Also, your points totals seem to be off for your troops. Do you have any bitz and some spare marines/terminators, or anything of that sort? Depending on what you have, you may be able to make yourself two custom Obliterator models, which would let you run this:

Marthorian Legion - 971

HQ - 155

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Troops - 516

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 258
8 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist
Rhino
Extra Armor

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 258
8 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist
Rhino
Extra Armor

Heavy Support - 300

Obliterator Cult Squad - 150
2 - Obliterators

Obliterator Cult Squad - 150
2 - Obliterators


This leaves you 29 points to add some upgrades, another Berzerker, etc.

If you look at my Khorne Compendium, theres about 4 Khorne Themed 1,000 point lists, 1 Regular, and 3 Themed, might be worth having a look?

I really think 2 HQ choices is too much at 1,000 points; how about this:

HQ
• Daemon Prince
- Wings; Warptime
155 points

TROOPS
• 8 Khorne Berzerkers
- Skull Champion with powerfist; Rhino with extra armour
258 points
• 8 Khorne Berzerkers - Skull Champion with powerfist; Rhino with extra armour
258 points
• 8 Bloodletters
104 points

HEAVY SUPPORT
• 3 Obliterators

225 points

TOTAL:
1,000 points

Appears my unit totals were off, thanks Lash.

Crazy number of lists ROT, you scheme like a Tzeetchian... maybe time to put that gold collar on.

Marthorian Legion - 1000

HQ - 310

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Troops - 540

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 290
9 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist
Meltabombs
Rhino

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 250
9 - Khorne Bezerkers
Skull Champion
Power Fist

Heavy Support - 150

Obliterator Cult Squad - 150
2 - Obliterators

Alright I concede, two HQ's are abit much, was hoping to carve into thier armor, but range is better.

I'll trade the one 155 point DP for another 2 man Obilterator Squad, come out 5 points to the good, maybe sink that into meltabombs for the other champion.

Marthorian Legion - 1000

HQ - 155

Daemon Prince - 155
Wings
Warptime

Troops - 545

Khorne Bezerker Squad - 290
9 - Khorne Bezerkers

To Lash/Svart, ok, will consider reducing unit counts for extra Rhino and armors... or is a land raider viable? I see the crazyness his is on the field, and points to pull from meltabombs (10), 2 Bezerkers per squad (total 84) and the second unit of Obilterators.

Thank you all for suggestions, again, nice to be on a "live" forum.

To confirm, running my DP behind my Rhino would count as in cover?

... You expect me to help you, after you call me a tzeentchian...

You should know better.

*storms off*


*shouts back*

2nd list looks fine! And It depends on the LoS, generally you can get him in cover, if not Unseen :]

Thanks, my Blood Angel buddy uses his, but at the cost of having a dozen or so troops split into two unimpressive squads. I'll stick to my Rhinos for now.

Missed your reply there ROT, don't get your power armor in a knot. I was just implying that your 30 odd lists showed a fair bit of forethought and planning, hardly an indication of loyality to the Blood God.

Ahh, but by that logic Tzeentch players would get so entangled in cunning strategic plotting that they never get past Turn One; Slaanesh players would be so drunk they couldn't remember what they'd brought to the table or how to use any of it, and Nurgle players would be too ill to make it to the game in the first place :biggrin:

HQ)
Daemon Prince, Mark of Khorne, Wings (140 points)

Troops)
8x Khorne Bezerkers, Skull Champion, Power Fist, Rhino, Extra Armour, (258 points)

8x Khorne Bezerkers, Skull Champion, Power Fist (208 points)

Land Raider, Daemonic Possession (240 points)

Obliterators X2 (150 points)

Land Raiders are overkill in 1000 points but he started it. A warptime Prince is better than the Mark of Khorne Prince I listed but he's still a huge threat.

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!

Two HQs aren't too much at this level if your using Daemon Princes. Using one means you need to keep him in cover and use when opportunity presents itself, otherwise it'll die to easily.

In addition Khorne princes aren't a bad choice if your starting out, because Warptime's nice, but you have to remember to use it correctly.

In addition they're nice and cheap which is always useful. Here's what I'd take.

Khorne DP with wings - 140 points.

Khorne DP with wings - 140 points.

8 Khorne Berserkers, Skull Champion with Powerfist, Rhino - 243 points.

8 Khorne Berserkers, Skull Champion with Powerfist, Rhino - 243 points.

3 Obliterators - 225 points.

Press forward with the DPs, allowing your Rhinos to move unhindered and deep strike with the oblits.
