Hello ladies and gents! Good to be back on a forum! I was part of the Librarium Online community a long time ago but that has very much died it seems so here I am on the venerable Bolter & Chainsword site!

 

So... I have been away from being actively collecting tabletop for about 5 years (still watching batreps, keeping an eye on releases though etc) and I want to rekindle my relationship with chaos and the blue and gold is calling me. I've basically got $1000 AUD to spend and I figured that'd get me a 1500 point army pretty well and this is the list I've come up with. Just want some constructive criticism on the list and TS in general. Cheers!

 

Battle-forged +3CP

Battalion Detachment +5CP

Relic -1CP

Total - 8CP

 

Ahriman on Disk - 166

Daemon Prince w/ Talons, Wings and Dark Matter Crystal - 180

 

Rubric Marines x10 w/ 1 warpflamer, soulreaper cannon, sorceror has plasma and axe - 209

Rubric Marines x10 w/ 1 warpflamer, soulreaper cannon, sorceror has plasma and stave - 207

Tzaangors x20 w/ brayhorn - 150

 

Scarab Occult Terminators x5 w/ hellfyre missiles, soulreaper cannon - 211

 

Tzaangor Enlightened x5 w/ fatecaster greatbows - 85

 

Forgefiend w/ 2 hades autocannons and 1 ectoplasma cannon - 160

Maulerfiend w/ lasher tendrils - 132

 

Total; 1500pts

 

The idea is the rubrics and terminators will cast weaver of fates on themselves while ahriman and the DP will be more offensive capability.

 

Thoughts for a fresh list? Bare in mind I don't really want a hyper competitive list I want to go back to a store and make friends with fun and banter but still be able to win against stronger lists.

As a charge deterrent the warp flamers are too expensive. You probably won't ever be in range to use them in the shooting phase. Even if you d6 hits aren't that great.

Ahriman works better as a support HQ. If you want two beatsticks, take another DPoT.

You have few AT weapons. Maybe replace a fiend or two with missile launcher/lascannon helbrute.

My biggest reasoning with the warp flamers is a high number of mates that play tyranids or other more horde lists so the auto hits may come in useful, yeah theyre a tad expensive but i feel when faster armies come in itll be a handy way to clear some chaff.

 

So would you run offensive powers on your aspiring sorcerors in the rubric units for more damage output and have ahriman casting buffs?

 

You're right about the anti-tank though, how do helbrutes fair at the moment in games? 120pts for a lascannon/missile helbrute isnt too bad really.

Helbrutes are good, but you might want to look at some forgeworld options.
