Hi All

 

I am currently making my first ever army and this is a list I came up with. I really want to use a demon engine heavy list because I love the bigger models. This is by no means suppose to be competitive but I wouldn't want it to be curb stomped either. I have considered trying to squeeze in a demon prince with wings but that would mean dropping off a demon engine to slot him in. Would it be better to do so anyways? Also, reason for choosing Black Legion is because I like their colour scheme! Without boring you, this is the current list I have come up with. I hope to get some C&C if possible and also some pointers on how to expand it to 1500 in the future.

This list looks terrifying at 1k points.  Please keep it away from me!

I have not tested it but it will likely be my first army and i hope to get a game in to see how it fares. Still not sure how to expand into 1500 yet.

Oh thats easy... add a bloodletter bomb and a skullreaver prince.  Or Ahriman + daemon princes of tzeentch.

 

Or if you want to stick to CSM... oblits and mauler fiends.

Thanks! All 3 suggestions are great. Definitely am going to consider the ahriman group and oblits/mauler suggestion!

 

Just a noob question. Do the oblits need a chaos lord accompanying them for rerolls to be good?

 

Also, if i use Ahriman on disc and 2 demon princes what kind of spells should i take and on who

Ahriman should always take death hex because of his built in +1 to cast.  You can buff that up to +3 with tsons stratagems.

 

The good stuff...

warptime

diabolic strength

gaze of fate

firestorm of tzeentch

weaver of fates

 

But really you use this detachment for smite spam and close combat support.  They are also fairly good against flyers.

I am still experimenting with this list. Would it be better to remove the defi and blood slaughterer and instead put in 1 more lord discordant and 2 contemptor dreads with butcher cannons? This at least gives me some range firepower while still keeping the priority targets saturated. Also this allows me to kill stuff hiding in buildings and stuff. I also tinkered and changed the legion traits to red corsairs which gives me more relic and cp to work around. The revised list is below. Would it be more viable compared to the original list?

 

++ Battalion Detachment +5CP (Chaos - Chaos Space Marines) [59 PL, 8CP, 963pts] ++

+ No Force Org Slot +

Battle-forged CP [3CP]

Field Commander [-1CP]
