change of pace GO BA!!

i painted astorath a few weeks ago and now its time to put him up. and here he is now iv thought about the single unit selection and doing tactics but i think a ful list will work better so here we go

librarian w/ fear of the darkness blood lance and jump pack

preists x3 w/ jump packs
sternguard x10
combi melta x10
drop pod

assault marines x10
melta gun x2
x3 units

death company x10
jump packs
power weaponsx2
powerfist 2
thunder hammerx2
infernus pistols

iv not done points on this list but i reckon its easily around the 2k mark  ok lets get down to business!!

the main purpose of this list is for astorath to make all units fearless and give them furious charge as red thirst is now on a 1-3 rather than jus 1 the problem is any opponents playing BA will also get red thrist on 1-3. hes also a chaplian so sticking him with the death comoany will give u re-rolling hits and wounds making this the hammer unit of the army

support/ synegy
support comes in the form of sternguard who drop in advance combat squad and with luck destroy 2 vehicles or cripple 1 flank of the enemies army (very gd Vs guard)  secondly support coms from the priest who give a 6" FNP bubble and spreading 3 across the army makes that 18" so all units shud get FNP as they move foreward

this weekend i have painted 1 obliterator  (these are a different set that i have previously painted as i cant find the camera) again points for guesin hte paint scheme :P

the obliterator is a must have for any chaos army  their a heavy support choice and come in units of 3 :) their 75 pts each but for this u get 2 wounds 2+ armour and a 5+ inv save but the biggest benefit by far of the obliterator is the multitude of weaponry it can fire per turn
plasma canon
multi melta
twin-linked flamer
twin-liked plasma gun
twin-linked melta gun

so you must pick 1 and the entire unit shoots that weapon so for the table that is infested with landraiders  9 blitz is a must!!!!

deployment  essentially u want to create  optimum firing lanes  by having 1 unit in each corner and 1 unit in line with the middle of the centre of the board prefferably in terrain this creates a huge bubble in which no1 is safe :P  putting obliterators in cover is a must as they are only t4 and will be focussed by any str8 weapons

because oblitz are multi purpose they work great as anti tank and anti infantry units   they also work well with lash princes  as u can lash a unit together then plasma canon them to great effect :P

new blog starting now!

Hi guys

this is the very first blog under the new banner of pimp my list  and it will include list analysis  units structure general tactics synergy etc etc  and of course plenty of filthy filthy things for winning coz winning is everything!!! 

since 40k is my main game ill start here with a unit close 2 my heart if u didnt guess from the picture their khorne berzerkers!! (although this is a pre-heresy world eater)

these guys have Ws5 with furious charge and 3 attacks all for 21 points each and a unit of 10 will easily clear out light troops such as guard tau dark and regular eldar  the main staying power of the bererkers is the powerfist so theyll need some kind of additional support

shooting you can use obliterators or havocs or any other long ranged shooting unit

CC *filth alert* adding a deamon prince with wings and lash drastically improves the power of the berzerker  and the Ws7 and 5 attacks from the prince help keep the berzerkers alive for longer as what ever is left will need 2 hold objectives OR terminators can do the job as well

they work well with a mobile army that will be driving foreward as they do need support so jump packs wings and trasnports

they arent really a  solo unit so only throw them in if they have some support or can win
