Right so, as many of you know i've played World Eaters for a while, and frankly the same tactics get samey. So i'm looking to go out and get myself a different style of play.

I looked into different armies, but frankly there are none that are as straight up awesome as Chaos, or without a huge Price tag.

So i'm looking to start collecting units of a Different God/Legion...

So particularly proud to call yourself an Iron Warriors fanatic? Or a cunning Tzeentch schemer?... Or even a Vile, omni-egregious , Corporal mishap of a Nurglesque Monarch.

Refrain from Slaanesh. I hate that guy.

Or any other ideas completely!

N.B: I was going with Space Wolves, but frankly the only army list that interested me was £300 from GfG. So there goes that. :ireful2:

Oh come on now, if you think about it, most armies should come out to around that at 2k.

Yes, well i figure, That as i own a fair amount, it wont be nearly as much to get more chaos, as to completely buy a 2k point space wolves list.

For example, I wont need to buy 5 drop pods, because i already own 3 rhinos, so at MAX i'd proberbly have to buy 1 more.

The I already own some Plague marines, Thousand sons, So if i did those, that's a huge saving on 3 Rhinos + more PM's/TSon's.

I already own 2 oblits, 2 defilers, 2 Princes, Terminators ect.

So it would be a drastic difference, with hopefully same results! :grin:

Do you see where i'm coming from?

I don't see how that's relevant, but i like to think i can paint to an acceptable standard.

well i useually get bored with my army so i work on a show case tzeentch army. its fun and relaxing. but i paint them to the best quality. I think you should go Tzeentch, because plague marines have a very similar fighting style to khorne.

here's my advice: keep buying chaos stuff and make a counts-as space wolf army. Then you can keep expanding your collection, try different tactics, do a different legion, AND when a new chaos codex comes out you'll be more or less ready to try out all the goodies that'll bring

best of both worlds? I think so

Bastardized space wolves. You speak of heresy!

At 5, that just seemed to be a shameless self-promotion because that didn't even make sense. "I paint well so you should do this." Right. Not the best way to go about that. Maybe this: "these guys look cool so you should try this." That might be better.

T-sons. Your running a CC army and want something different yet still chaos, go with a shooty army then. I would normally say go with noise marines here, but you closed that option off, so second best are the T-sons with their nasty boltguns and sorcerers. Some rhinos and a land raider for the speed and some punch. The obligatory winged DP's and/or Ahriman will round it all out too. (Just like every other t-sons army... :p)

It's a nice idea, but the problem remains, I'd need 4 more boxes of Termies, something to count as Long Fangs, stuff to count as Drop pods.

It'd be a toughie. Nice idea though.

Shame there wont be a new Chaos Codex for years. Got updated in 2007, So it's a long way off, It'll proberbly be something like; Dark Eldar, Witch Hunters, Daemon Hunters, Necrons, Space marines, Blood Angels, Templars, Dark Angels, Wolves THEN Chaos.

Just my predictions! ^.^

Not until 6th. They sell well so they will probably be in the starting line up.

Well, I'm just under the impression that GW bend over backwards for SM. :grin:

MMM, Unforgiven, i was thinking really; it's between Nurgle and Tz, Tz complete opposite from Khorne... But i hate sorcerors :\ Nurgle is nice, but it's similar tactics, in a way!

I'll look into it more. :grin:

That; Expect it'll be 7 guys, travelling intelligently towards an objective.

You can try a summon daemon list. At 2.5k I’m running 40 lesser daemons in groups of 10 or 5 each. It’s fun and a good way to abuse the FoC.

You could travel intelligently towards an objective while poop out daemons as you go…

I don't actually like Summoned Daemons, Lol. :3 I s'pose Greater daemons are wicked, but lesser daemons are lame. :biggrin:

Proberbly going to get a Nurgle/Death Guard list; THEN get a Tzeentch list afterwards. :biggrin:

Then I am sad you are missing out on good stuff. For a good competetive list, I have 2 daemon princes, nurgle wings warptime, a greater daemon, 3 rhinoes with possessed and havoc launchers, 2 plagues with 2 melta and champ with meltabombs, and a plague with 2 plasma and champ with pfist, and 6 obliterators, along with 2x5 lesser daemon squads. Everything except for oblits has minimum squadsize.

That does most definately not play as a World Eaters army.

For a tzeentchian list, I would recommend going minimum squadsize as well, simply because they turn rather expensive. Bolt on sorcerers, and around 3 squads in 1750 or so. 6-9 oblits, and 2 tzeentch princes. I've run it with some success.
