Big Whit's Chaos Space Marines

Big Whit here:

Got my new camera so now I can start adding posts with pictures of figurines and not just old 80s wrestlers. Here is my daemon prince and my greater daemon. My greater daemon is almost done, all I have to do is paint the base. I didn't do so hot on this last tournament I finished 6th and I've done a lot of changes to my list. So far I'm not all that impressed with the new list. I had to take out the greater daemon, and I can definitely tell that he is missing. I have to play3 games with this list and if my games don't get better then I'll change my list up some more. I want an in your face army and the problem is that if my land raider gets blown up in the first turn then the Berzerkers are useless, and my rhinos don't have much chance of survival. I may take out the Berzerkers and I may try to find a way to put back the greater daemon.

I tried to copy this from a PDF file and it came out screwed up. I hate being computer illiterate. The berzerkers are in the land raider.

I touched up your list so it's easier to read. I said this before, but I'll repeat it here: your painting is improving quickly - I really, really like these models.

I still think you'd do better with small, 5-man Plague Marines in Rhinos - give 'em two Meltas but don't bother with the Champion. The idea, imho, is to use your troops to grab objectives. Plague Marines, even if you've only got 5, are really tough to kill to the last model. I'm just trying to advocate cost savings you can use elsewhere in your list.

I worry that your Berserkers are unsupported. Are the DP's going to help them out or concentrate on shifting troops for the Oblits?

Hey Bigwhit,

To make it easier to post list from AB, try saving as a text summary instead of a pdf. Then just cut and paste from there. That is how I have been doing it and it works fairly well.

Nice Daemons! :)

2008 called and wants it's army back.

I think your list is fine, having played variations of it often enough. The real problem you have is bodies - there are not enough of them to beat Orks, Tyranids, or Guard, almost no matter what you manage to kill. And I predict that those 3 armies will be heavily represented in tournament play this year, probably outnumbering MEQ lists. That is good news for your Princes, but bad news for your low dakka low assault power force.

Consider dropping Oblits to pairs and getting a throwaway unit of termis, raptors, or chosen with meltas to toss into the enemy side of the board. You need to deal with the inevitable Medusas behind Chimeras and other such nonsense.

Brent thanks for the face lift on the post. I was trying to run one prince behind the land raider of berzerkers. I was going to deep strike the oblits.
JWOLF I think you are right about not having that many troops. I much prefer having 10 man squads to 8 at the minimum. the problem I have with running oblits in pairs is that they don't last long. If I have to drop any then it would have to be a whole squad of them. I'll go back to the drawing board and see what I can come up with.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.

Ass.

I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
