Well, after many a moon of not playing TT I have now decided that I am going to restart. The last time I played I think was 2nd or 3rd edition and had a 3000pt Ork army.
Now it's 5th edition, a whole lot has changed, and I am looking at starting a Chaos army.
So far I have my Codex, Rulebook and some fluff for my army ... half way there ;)
I have thus far in the way of troops.
13 Chaos Marines. An old Keeper of Secrets model that I am using as a Daemon Prince. A Chaos Sorcerer
I'm not sure what else I should get.
I'm more than likely going to get the Emperors Children boxset as it's a Slaaneshi army, another squad of Chaos Marines with the banner, Daemonettes, Havocs and maybe a Rhino or two.
I'm not sure what else I need, is it worth getting a Defiler or a Dreadnought? The Havocs are going to be my anti tank.
Some advice would be appreciated :nodding:
Id get more troops before you get vehicals, 5th edition rules are more or less centered around them, then if you are going to get a vehical i'd suggest then take it for somthing your army is good at. just keep in mind not to focus on your armys weaknesess but there strenghs.
personaly im a fan of thousands sons, but seeing as its slanesh i would personaly get a dreadnought for sure, oh and at least 2 standard squads of chaos marines, with icons of Slaanesh, mount them i rhinos, and maby consider lucius the eternal instead of the sorcerer.
Ok so it's taking shape a little like this
Daemon Prince (1) Chaos Sorcerer (1) Chosen Chaos Marines (10) Havocs (5) Noise Marines (8) Chaos Marine Squad (10) Chaos Marine Squad (10) Daemonettes(10) Rhinos (2)
I think it's about 1500 points now.
Anything else I should be looking at? I have fast attack in my Daemonettes, Heavy Support in my Havocs and lots of troops. My Daemon Prince should be able to take and dish out some punishment too.
My Havocs are the old Rogue Trader ones and have a Plasma Cannon and a Multi Melta. I was thinking that if my opponent agrees could I pay double the cost of a standard Plasma and Melta gun and field them as they only seem to be available for the Dreadnought now?
Otherwise is it best to have one of each or have say two Lascannons?
Or some terminators
