Here's my Word bearers force i'm planning to make. I don't just want it to be playable but i want it to look good to as i am using the forgeworld models for the dreadnaught and rhinos. I want to get the grips with the force so its very mobile. So tell me what you think :)

Dark Apostle-
Mark of Tzeentch- (makes up for the 4+ invul it had originally)
Plasma pistol
power weapon
melta bombs


Possessed Chaos Marines x10
Champion
Icon of chaos glory

in Rhino with extra armour

Dreadnaught
Additional combat weapon
extra armour

9 Chaos marines
Aspiring champ
power fist
Icon of chaos glory
melta gun

in rhino with extra armour

10 Chaos Marines
Aspiring Champion
Power weapon
melta bomb
flamer

in rhino with extra armour

Vindicator
Demonic possession

11 lesser demons
11 lesser demons

I'm hoping that since i have so many armoured targets the enemy will either split fire and nothing will come of it or concentrate on one (depends on positioning ofcourse) and the others get through and tear them to pieces against those that sit back and fire. While it has the ability to also take on "horde" and other melee enemies to.

this is my first draft so its not perfect and tbh it looks a little small, so any suggestions are welcome :)

Drop possession on the rhinos for just plain extra armor, that +smokes usually gets the job done cheep and effeicient, must say good rhino rush list, only other thing, maybe a pred instead of vindicator? just a suggestion, TL LC and bolter sponsers can be mean, and good range to provide support fire for your rhinos, the thing the vindicator lacks, range
Good fluffy list as well, only thing would be maybe MoK instead of glory with rushing units, but thats a little unfluffy and Chaos glory definately has its uses when it comes to those modified moral tests

Yep, Daemons is right on the Daemonic possession for Rhinos, Stick it on the Vindicator instead. Muhahahahahahahahhaahah! :twisted:

Nice List, with a good feel to it overall, but lacks in a bit of long range punch. :)

Thanks for the suggestions :)

What i was aiming at with the Vindicator was to motor it forward the first turn then pop smoke, if the enemy focuses its fire power against it then all my other units are spared if they don't then it survives and will be dropping a whole lot of damage into them next turn.

@ Viscount, Yeah i know it lacks the range punch but my last three armies i did were nearly all "Sit back and take aim" including tau, space marines and guard so i thought of taking on a more melee approach without going khorne since for some reason i hate that god :p

the new dex is shite. my rabbit could shit out a better toaster and trust me i know my rabbits arse. the daemons are now shit and the wargear has been thrown out and into my face.

Tzeentch are proper niiiice n if u come to my gamesworkshop with that army they would laugh so hard when your army beat mine in the head with a plasma pistol


p.s. im cool

Simon, consider this your first warning. Asshattery is not tolerated on this forum.

Urm, not minding simon the new dex is actually holds alot of promise in the right hands, basically people that can now look at the dex as morso one army of men working together instead of each Chaos marine an individual and i mean, you can freely change between bolter and BP/CC weap, it just takes away the standard power gaming lists, but when you look at it, thats whats happening to most of the dex's so not like its going to be a unballanced thing, so far my 1000 point list has worked spectaculary

Is asshattery a word? oh well it works.

Nice list, good work on the Lord to make the apostle, you overcame a small problem and fixed it, hopefully others will follow the example.........hmm

glad to see your not afraid of possessed too, so many seem to claim there not worth it, but its just not true

however I do agree that Daemonic possession on the Vindicator suites it better, the knock down in BS is no worry at all for such a vehicle

The new models for possessed were to good to pass on and plus i think they are in character with word bearers being in contact with demons so much. I don't know why but i can't stand veteran squads and terminators are just not in keeping with the feel of the army. :)

I hope i don't have to add anything to my nice new vindicator to make out its demonicly possessed, i would hate to ruin the model :)

I also updated the list for the changes.

So very true! :lol:
And as for the possession, all you really need to do is put some of the chaos plates on it and call it possesed :p or nothing at all, for possesion really doesnt matter

I had to remove the personal icon from my Dark Apostle cause i was just over 1500pts. Since hes with a unit he should be ok if he needs to summon daemons to him, i didn't want to give up the flamer incase i came up against low armoured units like Guardsmen and Nids.
