Goatboy here again. Today I showcase my Alamo 40k GT list. I’m taking it to the limit with CHAOS!

I went with Chaos Space Marine list because the new book has me excited and I wanted to try out some models.  I expect this list to get me more wins than losses, but we’ll see.  It is full of things I love to play followed by some of the new hotness to get me through my event.  Plus it has Ahriman because I love to see him fail a whole slew of spells throughout the game.  With that in mind – let’s go with the Red Corsairs plus Ahriman and friends.

Goatboy’s Alamo 40k GT list – aka…

Ahriman’s Tactics

The rounds at the Alamo are 2 and a half hours, so I wanted something fast and quick.  I am sure there is another thing to set up where you run Dreadnoughts or something – but everything pretty much can move and get engaged as quick as they can.  I think I could have looked at remove Ahriman and adding a Slaanesh Chaos Daemon option – but without the new Characters being legal for the Event I didn’t want to mess with it.  I like the new combo Lord or the Mirror guy to try and push forward.  In fact, I think those guys are going to be pretty big in the upcoming season as they are fast, hit hard, and have bonuses to cast and deny.  They are expensive, but their auras and abilities do so much for an army.  But that is for another time and another event if I get the chance to go.  This army is about throwing some business at you with the Maulerfiends and Discordant followed by some damage output from the Venomcrawlers.  We’ll see if it will work and I get some action from my Chaos monsters.

~Until next time – roll dem bones and get all the powerful 6’s.
