What I'm thinking of bringing

Post by PDane66 » Mon Feb 25, 2013 4:59 pm

Hey all,

I'm thinking of bringing CSM and here's a list of what I've got thus far:
-2 Great Brass Scorpions
-1 Baneblade
-2 Land Raider Terminus Ultra
-Bloodthirster bloodbath formation (6 bloodthirsters, An'ggrath and Skarbrand)
-Angron, Daemon Primarch of the World Eaters formations (with 2 more bloodthirsters)

So, basically I've got two questions. First, as there are three named characters here, how will that be handled? Are they limited to only one in all of Apocalypticon? I'm sure others are considering bringing them. Secondly, what are the rules for using SM formations as CSM formations? Everyone I've always played with has been ok with it, but not sure if there are going to be rules around it. Thank you.

For named characters, I have yet to see an issue there. I am fairly certain we have had a number of double ups (except for me. No one plays Sisters!)


As for the formations, unless things have changed, I was under the impression many marine formations work either way. I know if I saw that across the table, aside from a some specific formations, I would like just shrug and open fire regardless.

According to GW, CSM can use any and all SM formations.

However.. some formations require named characters that Chaos doesn't have access to (Dante's Sanguine Host), some require models that Chaos doesn't have access to (Titanhammer Formation), and some would require allying with other armies to acquire (Deathstrike Missile).

Last year Matt said 'Keep it within reason.'

Nice army by the way. If greater daemons keep eternal warrior in the new 'Dex, then those Bloodthirster formations will be very formidable!

Well... right now I have the following painted
1 Reaver
2 Warhounds
3 Shadow Swords
3 Baneblades
15 Russes
Chimeras
and a pile of various types of guardsmen

Unforgiven allies have a
100x deathwing
6 full ravenwing attack squadrons
100x greenwing
6 landraiders
6 preds
razorbacks and rhinos

I'm working on Leviathans, Cyclops, and Colossus as 'counts as' Reavers but the project is going to take a while.

But more importantly... making sure I can the weekend off work.

Hey thanks so much for the feedback guys. I'm going to be waiting untill I get my Chaos Daemons Codex to decide whether that's what I want to try and bring or not. I'm really pulling for those Greater Daemons to retain Eternal Warrior.

be careful what you say... Marit Lage may try and have them banned. obviously eternal warrior is too powerful to be played against. :twisted: ***poke*** :twisted:

No, I would love to see them. However, everyone thought a couple strength D weapons would take down a Primarch, when this simply isn't the case. I didn't want you guys to continue in ignorance.

Hey again everyone. I got my hands on a Daemos codex today and they indeed took eternal warrior away. A sad day imo. Anywho, in light of the Bloodthirsters in my original post's army list, what do you guys think? Should I scrap it or try and run with it still? Thanks ahead of time for anyone who offers feedback!

No. Phil Kelly. You should read the codex before whining.

umm..... it was obviously sarcasm.

And if losing EW on a 300+ point model isn't a reason to complain, what is?
