He most likely has a thunder hammer, which is very cool but won’t necessarily make him much better than the power fist we currently have access to. Warlord trait or a special aura or something could make the difference. Having more legion-specific characters is nothing but a good thing!

 

Yeah personally the Thunder Hammers are far better then power fists, that straight D3 is fantastic. Other then that identical.  

 

For his price point hes a solid "babysitter" for a unit for Heroic intervention or for a counter-charge the following turn. (this is of course assuming he is geared with what he looks like lol)

Yeah, plasma pistol and thunder hammer is pretty good for a melee beater. Depending on his buffs he will be great, but plan to run him with Abby either way.

Just coming in here to say I'm crossing my fingers we get Thunder Hammers across all options so my new Khorne Bezerker Champs get them and go crazy.

I'd say that possibility is close to zero unfortunately.

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.

For some reason I thought Thunder hammers are D2, now that makes sense as to why they’re better!

Given the short haft, it may just be a maul as someone said. However, even that's a decent loadout for relatively few points and we only have a few Chaos models in PA with mauls. More is nice.

Thunderhammers are usually onehanded weapons. Only the Deathwatch have twohanded Thunderhammers which can potentially do more damage but aren't as reliable. Blood Angels Deathcompany use twohanded thunderhammer bits as well but still the rules for the regular onehanded variant.

The points also add up exactly to 102 for lord + plasma pistol + thunder hammer cost for characters in the Astartes codex.

Good to know. I'm just used to TH's being bigger in comparison to the user. Since I don't get to use them or play against them often, my head is full of old things like the old SW Ironpriest, whose hammer was as tall as he was. The points matching makes a great case for it.

 

I for one welcome our new Thunder-Hammer Chaos Lords. :)

I looked at his leaked datasheet, can he be used as just a BL HQ? I'm still not sure how keywords work cause I never play.

Also, do any advice on running Zerkers and Noise Marines in a single list?

Yes you can use him as a regular unmarked Black Legion Chaos Lord but with a Thunderhammer and Plasma Pistol.

I fully intend to use him as such a fair bit. He is solid for his cost. 

Zerkers and Noise Marines are both great units, using them together shouldnt be an issue. just make sure that you give the Zerkers at least a Rhino, they are the first thing to be targeted and shot to pieces if able by knowledgeable opponents.
