Goatboy’s Army List – Continuing with Build thoughts on Word Bearers

Goatboy here again – talking about his new “slow” build army I am planning. I should get it all done before my start of the new GT season (Adepticon here I come). So today I want to talk about some build avenues I have been doing in Army Builder.

Again,  this list is going to be a tournament list, so I went with Space Wolves as my codex base. I feel it covers all the game playing style bases I like, as well as giving me a ton of modeling options. I do think that the Space Wolves is the most “Chaos” book out there now as it has the most options to create your “evil” destroyers of hopes and children’s toys.

I have written up multiple lists, but feel this one might be it as it has a lot of – crazy interactions and abilities to change how I set up and play.

The best thing is: it feels like a big army, which is something I always like to play as he helps me reach my dice rolling average. More crap on the table can help bring up the bad rolls I am known for at times. I also like how it can easily start in reserves and usually be effective. This is great versus drop armies or other reserve armies. Plus a big squad of horsemen is going to look cool running across the table.

Below are some of the test models I have done so far. The only troop squad that will be fully red is the Plasma squad, as they are testing fate by carrying Plasma weapons. Of course their Rhino will be red because I like to make sure it is easy to figure out what is in what vehicle so it makes it easier on my opponents. I know the amount of Razors is kinda nutty, but I need some long range firepower that isn’t massed Rune Priest (not Chapter) or Long Fangs (bored of).
