Nice one! Have you playtested this or was it written on the fly?Possessed Warriors of Chaos. Forsaken are halfway to that "spawn" point-- or are functionally just small spawn. Chosen are on their way to daemonhood and have the favor of the gods. But what about possessed Warriors? I always liked the Late 3rd/4th Edition Chaos Space Marine Codex's "build your own Possessed Chaos Space Marines" kind of unit, and having a unit similar mechanically to Chosen but with more control over their extra abilities as a Rare choice appeals to me.
I was thinking something along these lines...
Possessed Warriors (Rare Choice)
Equipment: Chaos Armor, Hand Weapon, Magical Attacks
-Must select one or more of the following: Shield, additional hand weapon, halberd, and/or great weapon (+1 point per model).
-Must select one daemonic boon from the following:
--Spiky (Armor Piercing Attacks) +2 points / model
--From Beyond (Cause Fear) +1 point / model
--Daemonic Aura (6+ Ward Save) +3 points / model
--Soul Thirst (Killing Blow) +2 points / model
--Daemonic Mutation (+1 Attack) +3 points / model
--Hellfire (Flaming Attacks) +1 point / model
-Upgrade one Possessed Warrior to a Possessed Champion +15 points
-The Possessed Champion may select a Daemonic Gift of up to 25 points.
-Upgrade one Possessed Warrior to a Musician +10 points
-Upgrade one Possessed Warrior to a Standard Bearer +15 points
-The Standard Bearer may choose a Magic Banner worth up to 50 points.
-The Unit may select a Mark of Chaos:
--Khorne (+20 points), Slaanesh (+10 points); Tzeentch (+30 points), Nurgle (+35 points)
The bestial hordes draw many to their ranks with the prospect of slaughter and bloodshed. Shadowing the herd and stalking the campfires are the warhounds and giant chaos beasts. The weak are culled by these beasts and ungors are slaughtered for food for the packs. Come time for war, those Gors with steel resolve and brute strength lead the only the most fierce hounds to war, chasing down foes and swarming the enemy.
This is really for making new units rather than modifying old ones.Id like Swordsmen dropped to 5 points and thier stat line then go to WS 3 I 3 like the other state troops. Instead have a one point upgrade for all state troops the give them +1 WS & I. And only hal of your State Troops can take the upgrade (round up).
This idea I like! :good:Has any one played monster hunter? well id like to have a hunter unit, using great weapons or bowguns or lances or anything else you can use in the game. Units of 4 large baces some thing like 3 wounds and a heap of armour and a good ward save, and special rules to kill dragons and other monsters but they will cost a bit o points.
