changing my choas

at the moment its winning roughly 50% but their are some tweaks i think i could make to improve on it.

lets re cap, here is the list so far:

Chaos lord
Murder sword
Sigil of orruption
Veteran of the long war

Daemon prince
Black mace
cultist x30 130

Berzerkers x8
Chain axe
Power fist
Veterans of the long war

Hell drake
Bale flamer

Bale flamer
Forge feind

TL Las

TL Las

Fortification - Aegis defence line with quad gun

wats working:
the bale flamers are worth their weight in gold  they are amazing and they have deffinately won me games :)

the cultists their fearless  and have 90 attacks on the charge plus the lord who now has a deamon weapon to increase damage they really do surprise me every game

wats not working
the deamon prince  in the last game he killed a large unit of warriors and a necron lord then died  to shooting he really isnt worth the pooints

forge feind tends to be better at infantry harrasment then anything else
preds  could do with  sponsons to make them a little better 1 las shot isnt gd enough

so wat can i change ?
 those marked in red  can be taken out this would save me 377 points reducing the list to 1470

for 80pts i can get sponsons on the predators thats somthing ill try
another helldrake is something ill deffinately consider 170

i can add another 6 zerkers  making 2 units of 11 this would increase the list to 53 models 

well see how it goes next week  although  i may be playing fantasy lol

for the necron players + more fantasy shenanigans

so i dont have to talk about necrons  check out kosmick9 its in the links on the right hand side of the page hell be blogging about his endeavors with his necrons. now the plugging is done and dusted

the main article  FANTASY!!!

so iv really tried to get into fantasy and it hasnt worked untill now i played my second game  last nite and i am enjoying  it.

the dark elves  have nice models
great  synergy with magic
and their not boring to play

i sill need a few more models to make the army look better ie  the list  n then after a few games ill buy wat i need 2 actually play

wat iv learnt from the games iv played is i need more shooting!! and harder units  to fight with as well as deploying

playing new games

its gd to have other games to play. playing the same game eash week can become stale so a change is in order.  now 40k isnt boring far from it im really enjoying 6th ed and my chaos. iv got plenty of new toys but i have been trying out other games and systems to keep me from stagnating.

so their are numerous things change the aspect of the hobby your in  increase playing painting or reading.

or try a completely different game which iv tried and my warning is dont buy into unless a its cheap or b their are plenty of otehr players

for example i tried a board game by mantic using veer-myn and corparation and its great a simple tactical game that can be used to at the end of a club nite after a main game is played or u cud play a few quick games instead its really addictive

card games  are allways great  fillers  and their  are plenty of games you can play

serious TCG games where u can pay a fortune for new cards to make ur decks better or jus buy starter sets  their fairly cheap  usually 10-12 pounds

or pay and play these contain all the cards u need to play such as braggert or any munchkin games these games are another fairly cheap game that is well worth investing in :)

finally i borrowed my mates dark elves and actually played fantasy and i shuld have done this along time ago, a gd tip borrow stuff before buying stuff saves loads of money!!!! lol  which i actually enjoyed  so ill be borrowing them for abit longer   get used to the game before i make a decision

how goes the chaos findings bugs etc etc

so its been  3 weeks roughly since i posted my list and ideas for how the list will play. and i want to go over  what iv changed and the problems iv been having. firstly  gd points generally winning and holding my ground with the fluff list!! having problems with necrons more on that later.

so what changes have i made i have dropped the hell brutes i love the models but their not that gd so they were replaced with predators with twin linked las canons

the deamon prince now has the black mace which is amazing for taking down multi wounded characters and big ish units of troops

im still undecided on the forgefiend  i like the model but in game its 50/50

the cultists are really impressing me  fearless with a lord and counter attack with overwatch they distract then grind down the toughest of opponents

the bugs in this list are more getting my timings right to disembark my zerkers to charge although i have been using the rhino wall more effectively to block units adn isolate others. the other thing is to much choice i really cant decide what id like in the list i can see a use for everything

gaming problems  necrons are still really tough to beat  their is so much fire power mixed in with tough CC units their a hard nut 2 crack
