Daily 115 – WWCD Skullcrushers of Khorne

What Would Curry Do  – Skullcrushers of Khorne

In this episode I talk about my idea for a Skullcrushers of Khorne Deathstar. My list is based around the idea of a large unit of Skullcrushers and a bunch of characters in the unit to take it from being devastating to outrageous!

 I’ll start by getting the boring bits out of the way and to take up the core I will use Chaos Warriors.  They are more reliable than marauders.  They can fight better, have access to magic banners and the army will not struggle against the types of units that the Marauders are good at fighting.  I prefer Tzeentch Warriors so will go for 2 units of 20 with Hand Weapon and Shield to make the most of the 5+ parry.
I don’t think I will bother with and special choices.
Rare choices will be a 600 point unit of Skullcrushers.  This probably looks like 8 of them with Full Command and Razor Standard.  I’m going for the razor standard to make sue that the attacks they put out really count and there is no danger of them getting bogged down fighting a tough Character with a 1+ armour save or a steam tank.  If you decide to go for the Helm of Many Eyes on your Lord then this should be changed to get the Standard of Discipline on the unit.
In a comped environment the unit size comes down to 7 with just musician.  Its worth sacrificing the upgrades to keep the bodies in the unit up.
To round out the list the characters to go in the units would be a Chaos Lord kitted out for killing other characters and 3 Exhalted heroes on Juggernauts.  Finally to get a bit of magic I squeeze in a lv3 Sorcerer Lord on lore of Fire (or Shadow)
