Eldar FTW :metal::lol:

Id love to put together a proper Eldar army. Dark Angels, Black Templars and Witch Hunters first.

My two Chaos armies are coming together nicely, although it is PAINFUL just how little anti-tank the Daemon army (incursion?) has... :noplease:

Agreed, although i still firmly believe you could tie up tanks with cannon fodder and/or majorly awesome close combat units. Use the fiends of Slaanesh for unit killers (with their heaps of attacks :eek:) and use all the Khorn units against tanks :yesway:

I have a thing for teh 'medieval' thing :lol: (dark angels etc... :D)

I played DOW for a little while, i've been intrigued to buy the sequel at some point also.


Should be home by monday, so i'll try and get some pictures of my Tau cadre, far too much time was spent painting them :lol:

Dude, my cheapest Daemon are 14pt Daemonettes. It's not worth it using weak lesser daemons to attack tanks because chances are they're going to get nowhere and then shot to pieces next shooting phase.

Screamers are too monetarily expensive to use except they'd be incredibly good at destroying tanks. Also, they only hit Dreadnaughts on 6s.

As for Fiends, I flat out refuse to use those awful models. That is a shame because they are one of the best units in the game for 35-40pts.

Similarly, Bloodcrushers cost the same as a loyalist terminator and monetarily costs the same as a squad of Space Marines. What the hell is up with that? :wallbash:

I've decided that Daemon Princes are the way to go. They have 2D6 Armour Penetration and a really high Initiative rating so can even take on Venerable Dreadnaughts and win. What I think I will do is buy a Chaos Space Marine one and then wait for the generic plastic Daemon Prince to come out.

I don't like the Greater Daemon models so I won't be using them. They're also stupidly expensive in points terms when I can get a Daemon Prince for 2/3s the price.

Dusted off some of what I have, in hopes of painting and playing it soon. Here's a running count of what I got. I'll list what each guy's equipped with, as soon as I get a chance to look them over:


  • [*]15 Deathwing Terminators
    [*]10 Dark Angels Space Marines
    [*]10 Ultramarines
    [*]5 Dark Angels Company Veterans
    [*]5 Dark Angels Space Marines; Devastator Squad
    [*]1 Dark Angels Apothecary
    [*]1 Black Reach Space Marine Captain
    [*]1 Dark Angels Librarian
    [*]1 Deathwing Terminator Captain
    [*]1 Space Marine Land Speeder
    [*]1 Deathwing Dreadnought

Last night I ordered a few bits, including:

heads, shoulders, and robed legs to covert a few of my loose Space Marines into full fledged Dark Angels
badges, etc. to convert 3 standard Space Marine Dreadnoughts into Deathwing Dreadnoughts

I'm hoping to get a deal on another one or two Dreadnoughts, to use up the rest of the conversion stuff I ordered. If I can only get one, I might just save up and get the Venerable Dreadnought as my third choice. :metal:

Nice :)

Very similar to one I used to field, except I went for the Thunder Hammer approach and some of the very early DH Inquisitor models. More pics !

Just ordered Interrogator Chaplain Asmodai, Standard Bearer, and Company Master.

Speaking of fucking shit up, did I mention I get to use those Deathwing Terminators as standard troop units. Yeah, so I'm going to be picking up another squad of those, with lightning claws. :fawk:

^ Terminators are lovely indeed, but i always feel the need to have something faster moving as well. I need to dig out my old army lists :lol:

I'm really itching to play a massive 8,000 point each game or something, fuck that would be fun :wub::evil:

Wait till you see the board+terrain I'm building. That'll fit an 8,000 point game, with room to spare.
