Here is a slightly more doucheier version of the above. Three detachments. No brigade, but two battalions and a supreme command detachment. I lose out on my chaos spawn and marauders, but I gain 3 more Malefic Lords and 2 heavy bolters. It also gives me a 30 man unit of cultists to infiltrate instead of just 10 man units.

 

Detachment 1, RnH, Battalion Detachment. +3 command points

 

Malefic Lord

10x cultists

10x cultists

10x cultists

Detachment 2, RnH, Supreme Command Detachment, +1 command point

Detachment 3, Alpha Legion, Battalion Detachment, +3 command points

 

Chaos Lord, bolt pistol, power fist

Chaos Sorcerer, bolt pistol, force sword

30x cultists

5x Chaos marines, heavy bolter

5x Chaos marines, heavy bolter

5x Havoks, 4x Lascannons

5x Havoks, 4x Missile Launchers

5x Havoks, 4x Missile Launchers

 

Pros over the previous list: More smite, More chances for Malefic Lords to hulk out. 2 extra heavy bolters. A large group of cultists to infiltrate/tide of traitors. More heavy weapons than previous list. Cost less command points to mass infiltrate.

 

Cons: No sniper rifles, lose 4 units of marauders and three chaos spawn. Less bodies on the field. "Only" 10 command points instead of 13.

The Codex Astartes no doubt has guidance that covers that kind of situation - long, detailed advice that would essentially boil down to "shoot the choppy ones, chop the shooty ones".

My AoS Khorne Blood Reivers arrived last night. I got all 40 put together. I think they will look great as Khorne dedicated cultists with brutal assault weapons. My DV chosen with axe and chosen with mace also arrived. They will be my Exalted Champion with Power Axe (Axe of the blind furry) and Dark Apostle with power maul (the Mace of Color).

My Iwata Eclipse seems to have died. :( Ordered a patriot 105 overnight. I'm hoping the .5 will be a bit easier to spray than the .3 of the eclipse.

Sad news. I was asked to reschedule a commitment and I will not be able to participate in the tournament.

Badger 105 will arrive tomorrow so I'll start painting again then. I need to prime and base coat a lot of models. The airbrush makes it easy as I can literally do 40 miniatures in a batch quickly, and the paint goes on smoothly. its also great for vehicles. I can not get even coats on tanks with a brush no matter how much I've tried. Airbrush does it so much better and faster.
