Zerkers/Zerkers/Enemy on the charge, Enemy/Zerkers/Zerkers when charged. They basically get to double swing, the only time it gets odd is if the zerkers are in combat for more than a turn. You can then activate your zerkers to fight, then your opponent picks their unit, then you can either reactivate the same squad, or move to a different unit and circle back to the zerkers whenever. Kind of a rare thing though, because they cleave through units pretty quick.

It's ironic that Chaos players reflect how Chaos are in the fluff, they get cucked multiple times by the superior imperium but instead of reflecting on their mistakes and humbly learning to be better they endlessly whinge and moan that the game is rigged against them, even when they're gifted numerous shiny new toys, and as a result unsurprisingly lose over and over again.

A note to all the friends commenting, this is mostly just a fun project. I don't really own many DG models, just the starter and wanted to try something a bit more unique. The bombards look cool, but I have a siege drill to keep games from being a mess.

Unless you make it clear that forgeworld is illegal people will try and sneak it in.

Grey knights require the least purchases to make a decent sized army that can be effective, by a significant margin.

Dread Mob is more viable than Mechanized, and either is miles better than Speed Freaks.

However "more viable" isn't the same as "viable"; Dread Mob suffers badly against armies with a fair amount of AT. Dreads are massively overcosted and Morkanauts are inferiour to Gorkanauts, pretty much solely because the Gorka is better in melee thanks to 2 more attacks. The list also has virtually no shooting, which really hampers you against some lists. Overall you can expect to either win by a landslide or get absolutely and completely stomped by end of Turn 2. I've been playing my Dread Mob list on and off since 8th hit and that's been my experience.

I've also tried some Mechanized lists with stuff like Meganobz, Lootas, Flash Gitz and Tankbustas, with transports. Honestly, it's pretty terrible. Most of this stuff NEEDS transports because cover is worthless/hard to get for Orks, and contrary to what >>55365376
would have you believe, Lootas outside of a transport have zero life expectancy. Tankbustas can't do their job decently, Flash Gitz have to move to get in range which negates their better BS, plus their expensive. Meganobz are decent but only use them with Killsaws; Klaws are worthless. Tooled up Nobz with Big Choppas are actually quite decent.

Trukks and Battlewagons are both overpriced and die too easily, doubly so when Battlewagons have to stay T7 if you're shooting out of them. T7 4+ save does not last long on the battlefield.

Oldcrons specifically, because I'm a sucker for skeletal aesthetics, the black/green color scheme, shooting lightning. Also because mindless legions that threaten all life tickle my fancy for some reasons, which is also why I like the scourge.


I love the aesthetics of chaos as a whole, and also because I'm a fan of corrupting forces turning people into monsters. It's very interesting to me from a story perspective. I find the fact that every servant of chaos is but a slave to darkness to be rather tragic.

Hard to pick just one having 10.

Overall favorits are Tyranids. Most other factions are just some kind of humanoids with a gimmick.
Tyranids are actually really different to most other armies and I prefer playing them without the samefagging that are artefacts and special characters. They are just one organism made to devour your opponent. Soulless, emotionless monsters that want to dissolve everything about you and make it part of them. Just like chaos is corrupting everything they are destroying it and using the remains to grow and keep on destroying.
GSC is taking it even further, taking the violation and alien reproduction theme from alien but going even further.

If you really think about it Tyranids and chaos are scary on a very different level then for example the brute savagery of Orks. Just as Dark Eldar are literally all about making torture a lifestyle.
These 3 beeing my main armies it might be that I am just a sick sadist or something.

Lots more guardsmen. You want bodies and as it is you can barely field 2 squads. I'd also recommend buying some SM plasma guns and converting some more plasma gunners.You can do the same with Melta guns too, but plasma is the go-to special weapon.

People swear by Conscripts as the ultimate cheap tar pit unit, so it may be worth acquiring a blob of those. Backed by a Priest and a Commissar it can be a real pain for people to deal with.

I've personally had success with a squad of veterans with as much plasma as possible riding around in a Chimera. They can jump out and delete any non-vehicle unit pretty easily and have had decent success vs HQ characters, though that largely depends on how the invul saves go. For maximum efficiency I'd stick a platoon commander in there with them to give them the Take Aim order for those sweet rerolls.

In terms of a 500pt list you could take the following plus weapon options to make a Brigade Detachment
-Company Commander
-Lord Commissar
-Command Squad
-Infantry Squad
-Infantry Squad
-Scion Squad
-Leman Russ

That's just over 400pts before options, so you should be able to bring it up to 500pts.

I love big monsters, I love magic, I love the lore of the chaos god and all their symbolism. Each of them are terrifying in close combat and can match even elite units but are cheap enough to be taken in hordes. In the lore they can be portrayed as hordes of mindless horrors or as free thinking individuals all at the same time. They're immortal so you don't need any justification as to how your guys survive being blown up each game. Fuck Abbadon and other mortal whelps, daemons should be at the forefront of all chaos lore.

I've always been a fan of the redshirt armies in films and games, not because they die horribly, but because they're the underdogs who go through shit with as much courage and duty as the heroes do.

The difference is they're not protected by plot armour, or to serve as self-insert power fantasies for the main audience and that always made 'em stand out a bit more even in the backdrop.

I think the intent of the GW designers was to show that ogryns are basically just beasts of burden, since they carry both jerry cans and tank treads. Also note the rings on the back of the armor, I think it's supposed to be attachment points for chains - so that you can tow a vehicle etc.

Blacks a tricky one. You want to have a highlight color but still leave it presominantly black. The right mixture comes down to style, practice, and what you're happy with.
