Reading the bat-rep in the latest White Dwarf it seemed that putting a Primaris Captain and a Lieutenant next to your Hellblasters is a damn fine idea, Re-roll ones to hit with the Captain's aura, minimising overheats when super-charging and then re-rolling 1s to wound from the Lt's aura.

Buffs them considerably and I suspect no slouch in HTH either.

Too many eggs in one basket?

I can see it being a point sink in smaller games, but at ~2000 (as per the batrep) it seems pretty solid.

Using d4s gives you an auto victory. Chaos marnies of snuggle pose gloistering when snipped with terminator forceps and ass williams are even hornier.

Aura buffs are the order of the day in 8th. Plenty of characters now buff the units around them and do funky interactions.

An interesting thing I noticed is that the CSM Daemon Prince allows fellow Legion and same god marked daemons to reroll 1s to hit (ie an Emperor's Children DP allows ECs and Slaanesh daemons to reroll) but the Chaos Daemons Daemon Prince only allows same god daemons to reroll. So when selecting a chaos army, it does matter if you choose a CSM DP or a CD DP.

While faurly obvious, blob of Necrons with a cryotek and ghost ark. 5+ invul and 2 4+ we will be back rolls a turn creates ridiculously resilient infantry. Even worse when against large squads of lychguard, its not easy to deal 20 unsaved wounds vs T5 in one hit before 75% of casulties ressurect next turn.


As for the hellblaster combo, how do you guys keep them alive?
I find mine get hosed down by autocannons turn 1.

Pretty much the first assault, not leaving enough room for Kharn to get in and having him squished in return like a meat accordion by a Leviathan. That was an oooooh moment.

Also having contemptors squishied by quad heavy bolters

I really liked how everything worked overall but I think the next 10 games will be Oooooh a-ha moments

Like just how many attacks world eaters with chainswords get out without being bufffed A-HA omg

Understanding that a Medium vehicle (Ork truck, Rhino, Chimera etc) can be used to tar pit most units. Even stuff that is a nasty h2h unit ( I tarpitted a Thunderwolf cav unit with just a Ork truck last weekend long enough to beat up the other unit.wink.gif)

Also tarpitting and assaulting 3-5 units turn 2 usually means they cant "fall back" >>> there is nothing left to shoot you up... wink.gif

Play Tyranids.

Take a non-character as a warlord (just means you can't take a warlord trait).

Deny your opponent any ability to score the kill the warlord victory condition for points by making a spore mine or a mucolid your 'Spore Lord'. The Spore Lord's living Bomb rule means it never gives away victory points for any reason, killed or exploded the usual way or what have you.

UI was told i'd get punched in the face if I ran a Spore Lord army vs a mate.

I laughed. tongue.gif

But seriously, I'm amazed by just how little GP has written. On a scale of 1 to Gorechild's Protege, this is nothing. It's like a Heavy Incinerator with which you've just rolled a 1 to wound.

All of these things just smash you unforgivingly and theres nothing you can do to stop them. Its completely stupid to take this army the way it is, you will degfinately lose every game no matter how good you are.

I've been having a lot of 15 vp games so I'm not sure how relevant warlord denial is. The primaris buffs are great. Hellblasters near the last shot banner is fantastic so far. Dumping a bunch of interceptors near infantry is super rude too.

On that note, berzerkers with chainswords + chainaxes are just brutal. Two attacks with the axe and one with the sword... and then you get to do it all again when they're done.

Run a cheap dark apostle near them for extra kicks.
