What can I say, I like Predators; another Chaos Marine list



Ok so I added the personal icon to the Lord and the lightning claw Chosen marine. Here is how the list shaped up, I replaced a squad of Oblits for a Predator with lascannon sponsons. I like to be different, so 2 Oblits and 2 Preds should fit nicely into my playstyle.

The list is far from optimized, but I detest math-hammer so that is fine by me. In the end it all comes down to tactics and the luck of the dice!

I'm gonna run this list for a couple of weeks, I'll let you know how it goes.

Chaos Lord 175
Bike, combi-melta, personal icon and Daemon weapon

  1. Personally, I think the lightning claws are a good change. There is nothing worse that getting into a fight with other 3+ armies and having it come down to each side losing 2 to the Powerfist/Powerweapon....what ensues is a long drawn out slap fight. With the addition of the lightning claws, you should be able to tip the odds in your favor. Two Thumbs up!!

  2. Yeah, I'm really liking this Chosen configuration, it's kinda similar to my 3rd ed Grey Hunter load out with more special weapons bite. It worked like a champ, especially against Marines.

    Heck, if I drop the icon from the Lord I could exchange the other flamer for a power weapon. It would make the Chosen real Marine killers; even on the receiving end of an assault.

    I've got another list brewing in my head now, well expect another update tomorrow! lol
