Goatboy’s 40K: Chaos Has Tricks of It’s Own

3 Minute Read

Goatboy here again with a Chaos list that has its own tricks to deal with those pesky marines.

I saw this concept posted on Facebook and I thought – let’s see what I can work out.  Can CSM’s use massed Mortal Wounds to fight their way to victory? Let’s find out. I am hoping we see some good Chaos stuff in the new Psychic Awakening book.  It feels like hope is all we can bring to this as the Chaos stuff currently just feels – lackluster compared to Marines.  Of course the following list might get a swift kick in the butt when Chapter Approved comes out as I feel some FW stuff is going to get a once over.  We’ll see but let’s write up this FW Dreads/Monsters/Etc army that is ALL ABOUT dishing out the Mortal Wounds.

Mortal Wound Tactics

This is just a basic robot list with a ton of shooting, tons of mortal wounds, and Abaddon to run around and cause problems.  You could drop the one Butcher Cannon Contemptor to get a Sorcerer – but figured this would just be the most basic way of doing it.  It probably isn’t any good but it would be fun to paint, easy to play, and simple to fly with.  The cultists are there to at least give some armies some issues getting thru to your robots.

Goatboy’s first Ogor!

Next time I might throw out an AoS list (WHAT!!!) as I am eyeing some Ogors with the new book.  The sheer amount of monsters I can throw down on the table with some cool Cavalry is amazing.  If not that then some kind of weird Ravenguard list that doesn’t try to throw down a ton of Centurions.

~What do you think of using massed Mortal Wounds?
