Warriors of Chaos ReBoot

Permanent Linkby DaBoss on Sun Feb 03, 2013 7:13 pm

So new shiny Warhammer - Warriors of Chaos Army Book - how will it change my normal 2400pt Army that I've been using...

Lord
Chaos Sorcerer, Lvl4, Mark of Tzeentch, Talisman of Preservation (45)
#No longer have access to Infenal Puppet (35) ==> becomes Dispel Scroll (25)
-- 370pts ==> 355pts

Hero
Exalted Hero, Battle Standard Bearer, Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Talisman of Endurence (30)
-- 180pts ==> 178pts

Core
1 x Chaos Warriors (19), Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 354pts ==> 353pts

1 x Chaos Warriors (18), Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 338pts ==> 336pts

Special
1 x Chaos Knights (5), Mark of Khorne, Ensorcelled Weapons, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 280pts ==> 255pts

1 x Chaos Knights (5), Mark of Khorne, Ensorcelled Weapons, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 280pts ==> 255pts

1 x Chaos Warshrine, Mark of Tzeentch
#Note: moved from Rare to Special in new army book
-- 150pts ==> 135pts

Rare
1 x Hellcannon
-- 205pts ==> 210pts

1 x Skullcrushers (4), Ensorcelled Weapons
-- 240pts ==> 312pts

Total 2397pts ==> 2389pts

So got 11pts left to add Chaos Mutation to my Sorcerer Lord = Third Eye of Tzeentch (10)

So overall army has not changed much, loss of Infernal Puppet makes Miscasts a worry now; no more 6 dice Infernal Gateway....
Plus price drop across most models except the Skullcrushers which have gone up +18pts each - no real surprise as they are very effective with so many Str5 attacks and the FAQ making them T5 due to using mount toughness - still only 2 wounds each so roll a few '1's on armour save and the unit is gone.

Future changes - maybe dropping the Hellcannon but what to add?
Can't fit another unit of Skullcrushers without dropping the Ensorcelled Weapons.
Add Slaughterbrute bound to my Exalted Hero?

As to the Book - Robin Cruddace > You Star, very well done - balanced but still interesting options.

What do others feel?

The skullcrushers are now t4 but have 3 wounds to compensate
"Crom, i've never prayed to you before, i have no tongue for it.
No-one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought and why we died.
All that matters is that two stood against many, thats whats important.
Valor pleases you lord Crom so grant me one thing, grant me revenge.
And if you do not listen....then to hell with you!"

Your quite right, missed that change!! My eyes must have glazed over.
Still gaining a wound vs T5 - not a big issue, just means low strength models can hurt the Skullcrushers and then bounce off the 1+ Armour save.
Though as I have mananged to roll multiple 1's when rolling to save before - I'm still likely to lose a couple of Skullcrushers in a combat....

My little gripe is that though he is still able to challenge scyla does'nt have the eye of gods rule and as a consequence don't get to make a roll on the table. This is also true of daemon princes and kholek.
Who knows what will be in the errata, if at all....

I doubt princes or scyla will get to roll on the eye of the gods as they have ended their quests in deamonhood and spawnhood .

Im a big fan of the book, mark of nurgle is nasty on a WS9 deamon prince.

I can see lots of builds from the books. Big thumbs up from me.
Yes I study Psychology, no I can't read your mind.........yet!
