Goatboy’s 40K – Prepare for Dreadnought Assault!

The older I get playing this game – the more awesome the idea of using a ton of robots to run down the field sounds!

Plus it would let me get some Leviathan dreadnoughts, and make them close combat monsters instead of the jerkfaced shooty ones we see from time to time. It all just comes from trying to fit a ton of neat nonsense into a list and maybe letting it work a bit better then it should.

First of all – the Leviathan dreadnought is way too dang expensive.  The forced Meltaguns with Hell Flamers really hamper this model from being something to be feared.  If you dropped both of those weapons, this beast would be cheap enough to be a bully for your Chaos Space Marines army.  As is – it is probably too dang expensive to really utilize in this manner.  This won’t stop me from trying to fit it into lists, but it still makes me sad as I see the points shoot up due to two weapon options it doesn’t really need.

Huron Blackheart NEEDS YOU! Join the Red Corsairs Today!

With that out of the way will make this another Red Corsairs list.  I really like the Red Corsairs as they fit a lot of what I like to play within 40k.  Advance + charge, decent CP, and forcing me to take Chaos Space Marine are all wins in the current 40k environment.  I know Alpha Legion is probably correct, but my guys are all painted red – thus my present list idea.  I just need two Leviathans to get this to work, so it might be something to think about in the coming months as I wait for Chaos Knights and needing some retail therapy.

This is a bunch of fat coming at you to punch your lights out.  It will be fast, easy to play, and everything gets where it needs to be.  The Soulburners are so good as they just cause Mortal Wounds. The two Leviathans are your distraction Carnifexes – as everything else gets moving, gets close, and brings the pain as needed.  Plus, the army will look cool as heck on your display board because you got monster dreads running around.  I wish the Leviathans could take combi bolters instead of the Meltaguns – but we all can’t live in the dream world that is the Chaos Goatboy lives in.
