Khorne Daemonkin VICTORY!!!

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm going to share anyway. After a long hiatus from gaming I started playing 40k again, focusing on CSM. Most of my games were Nurgle centeric and I lost repeatedly against my main gaming buddy. I think I've played about 8 games now, the last 2 with the new Khorne Daemonkin. The first game was just to feel the new book out, but today's game I put all I had into it and WON! Lol. I don't mind losing if it's fun, but to finally win - and to win in such a landslide - is an amazing feeling!

I took a Juggerlord with 5 spawn, squad of possessed in rhino, 8 zerkers in rhino, 10 csm with ccw + bp + 2 meltaguns, 8 cultists 2 aquads of 3 bikers w/ 2 melta each, and 5 fleshhounds. About 1500 pts.

Buddy had a platoon of 40+ guadsmen w/ priest, 2 command squads, and more (not sure of everything).

Bikes, hounds, and cultists died quickly, but blood points are nice so no worries. Split the platoon in half with juggerlord and spawn, csm squad on the left hand side, and zerkers on the right. CSM champ became a thirster, but he took so many hits so soon he didn't do much but keep fire off everyone else for few turns - and it was perfect. Hilarious when he died to a few guardsmen bayonets on his last wound.

Anyway, it was fantastic! Got slay the warlord, linebreaker, and a few objective grabbing vp's. Used most BT points for summoning 2 squad of bloodletters throughout to tie things up. Most blood points went to army wide FNP. So yeah, super happy over my awesome win - my first against his guard! Wooohoo! Many skulls for the skull throne tonight!

Wow, dude - that was a great write up and I couldn't disagree with your assessment. My first game was at 1000 pts and I had a little trouble with it (also my first game for feeling them out), but the second battle was at 1850 and went much more smoothly - also the first game I won ever playing with CSM since back in the day.

I will be facing the same buddy again soon but he'll be bring many tanks this time and I'm not sure what I'll do to counter yet. I don't have any Maulerfiends yet, but I did finish a soulgrinder and will be using my old brass scorpion as one as well. Thinking of trying a Helbrute Mayhem Pack out with it as well, though no Blood Tithe points there.

Also want to try Raptors out soon.
