Once I get through painting the Dark Vegeance Chaos, I was wondering what's a good way to expand on them? Add more troops? Add a Heldrake?
only if you like the model, really. The brute is so sucky tou could as well play mutilators...Buy extra Hellbrute
Yes, Troops win games and cultists need support from marines. So sounds like a good move, after that the Heldrake is good.Thanks folks Seems the common denominator is to round out my troops choice first.
I would honestly add in at least 1 box of possessed not for the unit itself, but as a source of conversion parts. I don't know how good the possessed in the crimson slaughter book really are, but I think the possessed arms, heads, bodies, legs, etc. add a great source of variety in other units. Especially if you might be mixing and matching chaos parts and imperial parts. The possessed sprues give you a nice way to spread the mutation of the Dark vengeance chosen around.Add 1-2 helldrakes, and then pick up the following (If you want to go unmarked/unaligned)
1-defence line with quad gun
2-boxes of regular CSM's
2- boxes of space marine devastators/havocs
With this in mind you should have enough to make any of the following
10 man chosen squad with actually useful special weapons
2X8 havoc squads with what ever weapons you want
10X2 Marines squads with all the bells and whistles riding in transports
