It’s good to see colours other than GW’s grey (which I find so bland!).

I went for a very dark purple for my Daemonettes, with black and silver corsets, One of the squads are bald and wear jade masks while the others are unmasked and have bright hair (most single-tone, unlike the show-off below). The masked coterie states that they are the favoured of Slaanesh, only removing their masks in his presence, while the others state that they are the Dark Princes favourites and they took the hair of their rivals, tarnishing it and weaving it into the whips they wield.

And for my fiends I went with a light flesh tone.

If When I do a Keeper of Secrets I’ll do the right side purple and the left the light flesh tone.

So a question all: Hellforged Leviathan Dreadnought What weapon loadout would you guys recommend? 'cause I see a lot of people saying Grav Flux Bombard (or whatever it is for Chaos) and Butcher Cannon Array, but I'd like to ask for more opinions.

 I have Grav bombard and siege claw on mine. I like having both a ranged and melee option for all my dreads/brutes.

 

If I wanted all shooty then double butcher cannon would be hard to pass up.

I see. What about the Soulburner Ribaudkin? Or have you never bothered with that?

And yeah, a shooty Leviathan with two Butcher Cannon Arrays would be frigging ace. But if I wanted a shooty Hellforged Dread, I'd go with the king of shooty dreads, the Hellforged Deredeo Dreadnought :lol:

I think the Leviathan's punchy power is something not to be squandered, especially for a Slaanesh force. Plus I like the flexibility as shoot/stab builds have always worked well for me for Dreads :)

Yeah Dreads without at least one melee weapon feel kinda weird to me. Like ... why not just take a tank instead? :D

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I tried the Soulburner in a few games and didn't like it. The Bombard/claw give me enough range punch and some awesome CC. It is hard for me not to suggest what is my usual load out. I've tried all the options at least a few times and still come away thinking the bombard/siege claw is the best bang for the buck.

I ran my double-butcher Leviathan today against an Ultramarine list with Guilliman, and it was beautiful

 

S8, 2D weapons en masse make primaris suffer. There is a definate bias towards multi-wound models in my meta, and 16 shots, hitting on 2s, re-rolling with a lord nearby, while wounding on 2s most of the time just mulches infantry. The volume of fire also means vehicles get hurt badly. 

 

While I normally believe in the mixed melee/gun loadout for dreadnoughts, if you take a step back, the Leviathan offers negligable improvement in assault over the normal chaos Contemptor, while being nearly twice the points cost. It's got 1 more T, 4 more wounds, and can re-roll to wound vs infantry, but they have the same invuln, WS/BS, # of attacks and so on, conversely it does have substantially more potent firepower with its various loadouts. 

 

Thus, I learned to stop worrying and love the dakka leviathan.

Therefore, I conclude, Valve should announce Half Life 2: Episode 3.

That makes me happy. I'm going to be ordering enough contemptors to run a talon, and I was thinking two with a claw and butcher cannon and one with two butcher cannons. I'm trying to justify the greater havoc launchers, but I fear I wouldn't use them very often.

Dream, those Daemonettes look fantastic. What paint did you use for the skin. Ahriman Blue?

 

Thanks, that's Vallejo Turquoise as base with Light turquoise mixed with more and more Ivory as layer. I've post a better picture on the alternative colors topic in chaos daemon section.

I looked down the sights of my rifle, my target looked back. It's eyes were all the eyes I'd ever loved. They promised everything I could ever want. Love, comfort, safety. An end to this nightmare. I felt my will draining out of me, entranced by those eyes.

Thanks, I'll have to try that color scheme out next year when I paint up a small Slaanesh battalion.
