This is a fun (if chaos is allowed to be) list.

I expect it will play like deathwings or grey knights- you will kill lots, they will have a difficult time killing you, you will often lose because you have so few models.

I think this would be super fun sometimes, but probably won't be too competitive. But that comment comes from a guy who keeps trying to figure out how to legally field a pure dreadnought list (troops? who needs troops?).

Not so sure about the special characters- they often can't be fielded at all, and are overpriced in a way that will limit your already small army.

I would look scary anyway. Since basically every model is a character it should also look really good.

The only real way to know if it's what you want is to try it.

if i were you, i would just use regular deathwing rules and convert them to be chaosy, but that's just me. that way it will be legal to use in tournaments.

The point of this army isn't to be competitve, it's to add some fun to the limitless powergaming lists of chaos.. As the saying goes "If you want to win, play chaos... If you want to have fun, play something else"

Actually any list can pull a "Death Wing"

Simply use 2 HQs in terminator armor and the Chosen elite. Fill your troops with demons.

The only problem I see is the limiting of Land Raiders. Since only your fast attack Chosen can deepstrike(unless I am wrong, which I prolly am), this list will be a little slow without the Land Raider transports. But then again, maybe 3 Chaos Land Raider's would be a little cheesy...

Evisser and MikeH... My friend and I created this list for the sheer purpose of a non-demon list, we were thinking of havinf defilers but decided that wouldn't exactly be fair as dreadnoughts and land raiders are already enough... yes the fast attack termies can deep strike...
