Black Legion - 1,500

Post by Marit Lage » Sat Aug 19, 2017 8:49 am

Finally got my hands on a Codex yesterday, and found out about the Fate of Kondor campaign. I've got a lot of models to get on bases still (cultists are my own personal hell), but I should be able to finish the models needed for this list and have a mostly painted army (sans cultists). I'm hoping for a semi-casual game, but since I'm late to the 8th edition party, what do you guys think?

Be prepared to lose alot of cultists in the morale phase when someone shoots at you, without something like an Dark Apostle or any other LD buffing unit. Abbadon only lets your CSMs ignore morale. For the rest you have alot of shooting with only a few melee, so what is your tactic? What is every unit supposed to do? I can see that your cultists are meatshields, but why don't you try to get two units of 10 csms to have more flexibility on the unit? If you explain the idea behind your army, we could be able to give mor solid advice.

Check their entires a little closer. Chaos Cultists have the Heretic Astartes keyword, so they aren't losing anything to morale.

Abuse the living crap out of my Legion trait. Melee isn't what Abaddon is for, though the Exalted Champion helps units stuck in it.

Shoot. Except for Abaddon.

Mostly because i haven't used giant blocks of Chaos Marines since 3rd edition, and I want to see my opponent's reaction.

I thought it was fairly obvious what I intend to do with 100 models with rapid fire weapons and the Black Legion trait.
