Reinforcements Inbound

Stage 2 of the local escalation league i wrote about previously is drawing to a close soon and i have finally managed to finish painting my Daemon Prince just in time for the deadline. I think “Bob the Barbaric Destroyer of Worlds” looks great and i can’t wait to get more of the kits as they are awesome models.

Here he is joined by the 3 extra Berzerkers i finished earlier in the month and the rest of my butchering horde. I am doing quite well in the league table, an awful lot better than i expected to if i’m honest. Some games are still to be played but you can see a condensed version of how it currently stands below:

I am currently 5th overall and i haven’t managed to get any extra league games in so far so i must be doing well. If you remove the points from playing extra games and painting i think i currently sit 1st. Not too shabby! My 1000 point list at the end of stage 2 looks like this:

+ Legion +

World Eaters

+ HQ +

Daemon Prince with Wings: Khorne, Malefic talon x 2
Dark Apostle: Bolt pistol, Mark of Khorne, Power maul
Exalted Champion: Chainaxe, Chainsword, Mark of Khorne

+ Troops +

8 x Khorne Berzerkers: Icon of Wrath, Chainaxe, Chainsword.

Even though i won my first 2 league games it was apparent that my current setup is lacking in one key area – firepower! I currently only have 4 guns in my whole army; 3 of them on tanks and 1 of them is a pistol which makes my shooting phase none existant most turns. So with that in mind for stage 3 i will be adding some much needed dakka.

I toyed around with a few ideas like Terminators or Havocs but in the end settled on 2 Helbrutes. Each of them will be armed with an Autocannon and Missile Launcher and i will add a 3rd with a Warpsmith in the next stage so i can stick them in their own detachment for the extra CP.

This decision was mainly influenced by my lack of funds this month and having to choose from my existing collection but i still think it is a solid choice giving me the ability to hit infantry and vehicles alike. These 2 ebay rescues need a good dettol bath before i can begin any painting but i’m hoping by giving them a new life they will repay me (or Khorne) on the table by thinning the lines before i hit home with the Berzerkers or Daemon Prince.

It isn’t a massive amount of dakka but with the 250 point limit it is probably one of my best options and for the start of stage 3 my 1250 point list will look like this:

+ Legion +

World Eaters

+ HQ +

Daemon Prince with Wings: Khorne, Malefic talon x 2
