How to make a Khorne DP work?

1805 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  MidnightSun
I'm aware the go-to DP is a Nurgle DP but I play a semi-casual (the kind of semi-casual where you still kinda want to beat your opponent for bragging rights), themed Khorne WoC army and I really want to find a way to make a Khorne DP work.

So how would I do this as effectively as I possibly can?

Off the top of my head I'm thinking;
- MoK, Chaos Armour and Flight
- Scaled Skin, Soul Feeder, Flaming Breath
- Sword of Swift Slaying

Obviously I'm aware how painfully UP this guy is in comparison to the good old Nurgle DP... but I'm on a mission!

Would love to hear your suggestions guys!

Think I've settled on:

- MoK, Chaos Armour and Flight
- Scaled Skin, Soul Feeder, Flaming Breath
- Charmed Shield, Dragonbane Gem, "Axe" (Sword) of Striking
I don't know if you're still keeping track of this thread, but I'd offer a different view.

I'd bring Daemon of Khorne, Chaos Armour, Scaled Skin, Soul Feeder, Flaming Breath, and Dawnstone. Yes, he doesn't get the fanciness of his other gear, but a 2+ re-rollably is pretty crazy and better in pretty much every situation. He's killy enough with Flaming Breath, 5 WS9 attacks and Thunderstomp, and he won't be going anywhere due to Unbreakable/Soul Feeder if he loses (he's usually going to regain all of his wounds in the turn he breathes fire, and usually one or two wounds per round otherwise), and mobility to get into the side/killpower to rack up combat res/sheer durability to make sure he wins the fight.

The exception is if you face loads of Lore of Metal, in which case the Dragonbane Gem is pretty much mandatory to stop him dying to a single casting of Searing Doom.

Or cannons, or single shot spear throwers, or weapons that ignore armor, or new Way Watchers that can ignore AS w/ shooting ... :grin:
In any of those cases, the Dawnstone and the 1+ armour are both completely useless and Dragonbane Gem is redundant...
