hahahahahahaha Yes that is a great idea that is just as good as Bujiga's idea

And yell at anyone for using them in conjunction with the Black Legion.


Point is the other Warbands can have a mix of it all, but i find it odd that hte Thousand Sons up and join Abbadon. But the Rubic could have affected more marines and they are mercenary rubic bands.

Yes that is what I hate about the black legion. They take any one from any where and stick them into their legion. It is like the multi cultural legion. Although there are many things good about that legion don't get me wrong but I hate that thing specifically.

Rubic Marines all the Way!

Yes Rubic marines FTW.

Black Legion is the Ultramarines of Chaos. Well actually the Word Bearers are the goody goody ones, but the Black Legion is the poster boys

At least 6th Errata Failaddon to not be such a failure though... Still never liked the guy.

Ahriman though, he is cool.

Yes the Black legion are definitely the poster boys of Chaos except other legions get mention it advertising campaigns not just the poster boys (unlike the space marines. Damm ultrasmurfs.)

At least 6th Errata Failaddon to not be such a failure though... Still never liked the guy.

Apart from his toughness 5 being his only toughness I haven't heard of anything else so could you tell me. I like Abaddon's crunch and the fluff from the Horus Hereisy but after Horus died he then had rapid mutations. He lost his awesomeness, he became more of a prick, he lost 13 times over 10,000 years over a single planet, he became.... Failbaddon.

Ahriman though, he is cool.

Ahriman is awesome. He is my favourite model you can get (fluff wise) and my second favourite character in the books (first being Magnus but then again he did lose some credit when he sat on his fat arse not giving a care in the world and just sending troops to either retrieve artefacts, help their only ally the Word bearers or kill space wolves). Ahriman actually has an excuse for losing (going into the web ways against harlequins and he has actually gotten close unlike Abbadon with the largest Chaos fleet can't take over a single planet and had 10,000 years to try.) Also I'm so happy I finished painting my Ahriman just two weeks ago. Anyway in short Ahriman is frigen Awsome.

I sort of realized you liked Magnus, due to your name :P

Is this the point in the conversation when I mention that it is in fact the name my parents gave me? :D

:shock: Did your parents play 40k? That is an awesome name. You should go up to a GW store just say once; "Magnus is back." :mrgreen: ........ Wait, are you making this up?

ok abbadon's black crusades aren't exactly failures its an amazing feat in itself that he manages to unite so many factions and warbands into a cohesive force that sets over half the galaxy ablaze before the imperium can FINALLY make a counter attack. and you have no idea how hard itd be to keep a whole bunch of selfish, power hungry, ambitious, followers of chaos from breaking ranks and going off on their own thing.

correct me if im wrong but IIRC the black crusades failed not because the imperium crushed them or anything but simply because the forces of chaos lost momentum

and ive committed my de-railment post for the day

Also Abaddon has completed some form of goal in each Crusade as well, whether it be getting his Daemon Weapon on one of them, stealing tow Blackstone Fortresses, weakening the Gothic Sector or basically taking Cadia itself.

I agree that Abaddon's crusades are very successful in uniting tonnes of war bands but doesn't that mean he has more of a reason to win? Plus Abaddon has never set half the galaxy ablaze by him self. All he has done with 13 attempts over 10,000 years is gain support and take over only one planets ground not even the ir even though he has a larger fleet than the imperium, Typus' plague fleet, the planet killer and a hand full of black stone fortresses. He is long over due for a spawning. Also a lot of the war bands their arent under his control they just come in for the killing and run wild. Even though the majority of forces are under his control he still doesn't control all of them. For example Zhufor, chaos lord of the Skulltakers are said to be under Abaddon's control in the 13th black crusade. All they do however is ignore orders and shred the enemy from limb to limb on the front lines. Although Abaddon makes all those war bands fight for a common cause doesn't mean he has control over them. Although in the great crusade and Horus Herresy Abaddon was a beast and ripped anything up that stood in his way. It was only when Horus died and took charge and failed horribly and then criticises Horus for failing even though he nearly destroyed the imperium in a few months-years while Abaddon cant take over a single planet in 10,000.

correct me if im wrong but IIRC the black crusades failed not because the imperium crushed them or anything but simply because the forces of chaos lost momentum

I'm pretty sure it was because the guardsmen (and sometimes the blood angels) defeated them.

That is true and he successfully did that but he didn't raise the bar high enough (except stealing the black stone fortresses) and the bar of taking Cadia is pretty low compared to Horus and Horus sort of 'knocked the bar over with his foot while jumping' (aka. Just lost it) while Abaddon can't even reach the bar.

That was completely doable with Iron Warriors last codex.


By the Dark Gods this list is now possible thanks to the 6th ed rules :D. But the question is for how long.

Sorry, how's it possible to take Havocs with Tanks Hunters and Furious Charge CSM with 2 Melta's? How's it possible to take 4 Heavy slots and take our Oblits in Elite slots? Am I missing some major changes with 6th?

Yea I don't get it either. It may be some change I haven't read yet? Also what HQ are you going to take.

Is that with the FOC doubling over 2000pts? If so you need 2 HQ's.
