Does anyone take FW units? E.g. Sicaran, Spartan, relic preds or Blight drones?


So far I've used the plague hulk, rapiers and the Dreadnought. Usually FW units are all solid choices, but since they force you to take a CAD they are in a weak spot these days. Also, Traitor legions hasn't done anything for vehicles.
FW should simply put out n FAQ that says: In all formations treat havocs=rapiers, predators= relic predators, helbrutes = all kinds of dreads, heldrake= all kinds of aircraft and so on.

How do you find the Plague Hulk??? Does it do quite well

Yeah I know what you mean that's why I usually just run the purge detachment most days just so I can squeeze all my FW units in as I usually run Contemptors, laser destroyer vindicators being able to take them in the Vectorium would be cool but doubts it would ever happen as FW are hopeless when it comes to faqing 40k stuff

Spam a ton of bikes in a vectorium with a flying daemon prince.

perhaps mass obliterators

even lots of MSU tacs and rhinos seems OK.

Have tou guys have seen the DG teaser video? We know Mortarion is coming, new PM models, new nurgly cultists and maybe some DG termites. Do anyone know of any other rumours or pics?

There aren't even rumors for rules as far as I know. Plague Marines are gonna need something though to differentiate them from their regular counterparts.

Maybe they'll get a 4+ feel no pain sv ??? It'd be cool if they could all take plasma weapons like how rubrics can take flamers. I wonder if they'll get some sort of heavy weapon plasma cannons and multi meltas would be cool

Any idea when it's going to be released? Hov long has it been between the teaser and the release from previous releases?

This is new ground really, GW haven't given advanced teasers like this for decades. Normally things are teased a week before on Pre-order day, this is an unknown advance.

I would probably run three units of autocannon havocs, two units of CSM in rhinos and a terminator lord with termicide. Not sure how much points that is, but it would be a really strong list

Typhus is worth it when you infect Alpha Legion Cultists and run him in a Spawn star. Otherwise he's completely ignorable. Which is a shame because he theoretically offers tons of utility.

Spawn, biker lord, bikes, obliterators, havocs are the best units imho. A vectorium is a good place to start, a couple CSM squads in rhinos, I would skip the jump infantry and get bikes (I suggest 4-5 bikes in each unit). You need a unit of chosen or termies, I only have chosen and I'm pretty happy with them, but I hear very good things about combi melta termicide. Drop the brute and get havocs. A biker lord can run with 5 spawn or a blob of bikes. He usually always makes up for his points.

that sounds like fun, you just run a CAD with two cultist blobs and a cheap lord? Do you run infiltrating chosen too?

Unhealthy Competition With Other Legions





I toyed with the idea of having 6x20 chaos cultists from an AL CAD and then bringing another CAD with typhus and 2 squads of barebones CSM and then as many lords as I can get to put in the zombies. Never going to do it, but it seems really good.

I had done a Purge detachment with 3 Chosen with Melta in Rhinos, Typhus with a retinue of Obliterators, and then an Alpha Legion Lost And Damned and gave the Apostle a Mindveil. Rest of the points were spent on Cultists.

Hi guys, I didn't get any response on my list, so I thought I'd post it here. The psyker from the warband join the Spawn(to spread out the obsec), the other psyker join the biker unit with the lord. They both roll on telepathy and biomancy to get shrouding and or invisibility for the helbrute- and biker unit.

The helbrute warlord rolls on the night lords warlord table hoping for hit and run or rampage. The brutes will walk up the middle of the board, hoping for some double tap plasma action.

I hope this list will be somewhat competitive, i'd love to hear what you guys think. ty

Looks solid, but why only two specials for the chosen? Point of chosen in my mind is to max out specials.

Also I don't like Plasma cannons, the small blast sucks and helbrutes don't want to lose hull points because of gets hot. You could save points there with Multimeltas and have sth. against armour as well.

Thanks for the commen! I find the plasma cannon really effectiveness if I get off enfeeble I will ID T:4 models. Multi melta is range 12"; can't say I find them effective outside mayhem pack. I give the chosen 4 special weapons when I have the points for it, couldn't find the points for it in this list. And I can only shoot 2 weapons out of the firing slots in the rhino.

Multi-Meltas are 24" range. You are thinking of Meltaguns (The troop hand held version). Maybe you'll find it a bit more useful now =P

How do you guys think DG wil fare in the new edition with the recent news about multiple wounds and better leadership mechanics?

Well every extra point of toughness makes every wound more valuable, so extra toughness will always be a huge benefit.

But one thing that I think needs to be discussed is movement. I would think that it's very likely that, one way of balancing what is now DG's far superior benefit to those of other legions, is that they MoN will probably give a hit to movement. Maybe just 1", but it all matters. They're certainly pushing the 'slow advance' idea on the webpage.

This is why I've always modeled Relic Weaponry generically, (the black SWORD, instead of Mace) or as a separate model (like the Sword familiars in Castlevania).

Losing The Burning Brand however, is gonna be disappointing for my Raptor Lord model.

Has anyone tried minimum army but maximum number of nurgle flying princes? A flying circus of at 4 death guard princes with FNP should be a pain to fight.
