BDD 217 – South Coast GT preview

South Coast GT preview

Russ Veal joins me to have a South Coast GT preview. We talk about the army list trends, what the new army books are looking like, how the older books are adapting and what we can expect to see doing well in 2013.

Almost 20% of the lists at the South Coast GT are Warriors of Chaos with 38 players.  The next closest is Ogre Kingdoms with 18 while most of the rest of the field is between the 10-13 bracket.

The Warriors of Chaos lists are quite similar but there is still a good amount of variation between them with a mix of super princes and double princes.  Warrior blocks are in good attendance usually backed up by a few chariots. Throgg and his trolls are common too.

Elsewhere Tecilis is make a strong showing in the High Elves lists and there are a couple of tasty Vampire Counts armies.

The Daemons of Chaos armies have a common theme of 2 skull cannons but other than that one feature they are quite varied with a 3 different Greater Daemons making a showing.

Painting Warriors of Chaos

Painting Warriors of Chaos

This week I have been painting a Hellcannon for my Chaos Dwarf army and I have found some tips for painting Warriors of Chaos that I share in this episode.

I talk about

  • a nice and easy method for getting great looking armour on your Mark of Tzeentch Warriors.
  • an awesome looking skin tone for deformed flesh
  • Nurgle Green armour, both metallic and lacquered effect.

These tips are all really easy to get a great looking models from and all use the latest citadel paint range.

BDD 179 – Warriors of Chaos FAQ’s

Warriors of Chaos FAQ's

Warriors of Chaos FAQ’s

I talk about some of the Warriors of Chaos FAQ’s that have been popping up over the last week on the forums and sent into me via email.

The rules I cover are

  • Soul Feeder – How this interacts with the Stomp and Thunderstomp rules and also how it works with simultaneous initiative steps and the character with that ability getting killed.
  • Warp Flame – Is it a flaming attack and how does it work with Regenerate if the regenerate rule has been removed during that phase by other flaming attacks.
  • Warshrines – What happens when a Warshrine with a character mount has the character killed.
  • Glean Magic – How does it work with spells that rely on their own Lore Attribute instead of the Tzeentch Attribute.

I give my thought on these rules and try and show some precedent from else where in the game as to how to handle them.

BDD 177 – Top 5 Daemon Prince Builds

daemon prince

Top 5 Daemon Prince Builds

I give a run down of my top 5 Daemon Prince builds. I pick out the combos that I think will be most used.

5. The Fully Tooled Up Prince

  • Daemon Prince
  • Mark of Tzeentch
  • Daemonic Flight
  • Chaos Armour
  • Scaled Skin
  • Chaos Familiar
  • Flaming Breath
  • Soul Feeder
  • Third Eye of Tzeentch
  • Poisonous Slime
  • Magic Lv4
  • Charmed Shield
  • Potion Of Toughness

4. Cheap and Cheerful

  • Daemon Prince
  • Mark of Nurgle
  • Daemonic Flight

You can get 2 of this guy in a 2400 points list and still have enough point to give one a Charmed Shield and the other Glittering Scales.

3. Speed Daemon

  • Daemon Prince
  • Mark of Slaanesh
  • Daemonic Flight
  • Scaled Skin
  • Glittering Scales
  • Flaming Breath
  • Magic Lv4 – Shadow

With Steed Of Shadows this guy can cover 40″ of the table and breath fire on a unit.

2. Ultra Killy

  • Daemon Prince
  • Mark of Khorne
  • Daemonic Flight
  • Chaos Armour
  • Scaled Skin
  • Flaming Breath
  • Acid Ichor
  • Poisonous Slime
  • Helm Of Many Eyes or Sword of Swift Slaying

This Daemon will put out a ton of damage.  ASF is the key to this.

1. All Around Awesome

  • Daemon Prince
  • Mark of Nurgle
  • Daemonic Flight
  • Glittering Scales
  • Scaled Skin
  • Flaming Breath
  • Soul Feeder

The Daemon that I think will be most often used come in at 330 points and has plenty of points spare for other gifts. He can easily have magic levels added and they will be very effective with Lore of Nurgle or Death.

BDD 176 – Initial Warriors Of Chaos Thoughts

Warriors of chaos

Initial Warriors Of Chaos Thoughts

Warriors of Chaos book was released at the weekend and I give my initial thoughts on the army.

I have a run down of the Magic Items, Spells and unit entries in the new book and pick out the parts that I like the look of and think might be common choices.

Some of my favorites are

  • Daemon Princes particularly the Hatred of the other marked Daemons.
  • Core Chariots of Khorne
  • Chimerae as Special Choices. 3 Flyers as Special.
  • Lots of choice in the Monsters department. The Shaggoth is now 50 points cheaper for the same model and the discount is event greater when the weapons are included.
