Default Comparison between the new and the old.......

Well, the new Chaos Codex will be coming pretty soon, and with it we gain as many advantages as we lose others. The world is always changing , and as the inhabitants of this world we must always embrace changes, even if it hurts us. With the rise of the new codex, we have to ride on the Winds of Tzeentch, abandon totally the ideas of the old and embracing the future ideas. With the information revealed to us via our many hardworking brethens, we mostly know what is coming our way. And thus we wll be able to survive in the new age, together we will let the galaxy burn to the might of Chaos!


Alright, enough of my ramble and on to the topic.

My Nurgle force used to be an infiltrating army supported by Possessed mounted in rhinos, Deepstriking termies and predators with various assorted goodies. But now that the codex have taken off the entire veteran skills and changed the Possessed rules badly, my entire army is torn dwon from a respectable 1500 pts to only 700 points of things that I can use with the advent of the new codex.

From the information that have ben coming our way for several months now, I can see how my new force will look like. From the infiltrating army, the new codex have changed my army to become a mockery of a Dark Angels army, with deepstriking terminators and fast-riding bikers supported by static troops and Predators.

So how will the new codex change your army, and how it differs from your old army?

The new dex will amke my army relatively non-existant. NO daemonettes. No special daemons. In fact - I will need to buy space marines as Daemons ren't a troops choice anymore!!

Gah!

ArchHeretic Templar,

Sing it brother! Ba dA Ba Da, My army's gone! Ba dA Ba Da, no rules for me. Ba dA Ba Da, good thing I've got noise marines, Ba dA Ba Da or I'd have no Ar-my! Ba dA Ba Da, and now I'm sa-ad, Ba dA Ba Da so freaking sad. Ba dA Ba Da, my traitors are gone, Ba dA Ba Da no more Leman Russ, Ba dA Ba Da I've Lost my basi, Ba dA Ba Da and my hellhound. Ba dA Ba Da, and now I'm sad, so so freaking sad, and now I'm sa-ad, gotta leave them at home. (Waah, Waah, Waah, Waah!) :'(

On the plus side my Lady's Emperor's Children army is going to kick some tail in the new 'Dex. I already posted our new list in the rumors discussion thread.

Well, it used to be LatD. Now It's a marine list.

All I did was chop off their legs and swap em with marine legs and back-packs. Done. CC squad.

ZOMG AP3 B0lter PWN U D3D ROFLOL1!1!1!1!. ;D ;D ;D


Actually no. My inner n00b has been tied up by serious Hadhfang and isn't comming out. Else he'll go the same way as partying-on-a-friday-night-until-the-crack-of-dawn Hadhfang :P.

The new Dex brings for me, lots of Rubrics as cannon fodder. Yes. Cannon fodder. You see I have the wonderful advantage of playing a lot of power armour and Meq armies, so they will become big targets. With half my points on them as cannon fodder I can then spend money and points on a lot of new toys like obliterators or possesed.

and if that doesn't work, I will adapt. Resistance is futile!

I don't think I'll need to make any major changes for my Black Legion army list, although I do have about 20 daemonettes that I'll probably drop, at least until they get rending back. If they don't get it back... well I don't wanna think about that, it's just too depressing.

I'm still not sure how my tactics will have to change.

I basically always ise 3 infiltrating infantry units and 2 infiltrating HQ's.

I figure I could still get 3 infiltrating units of Chosen. The rest all really depends on whether or not I'll be able to infiltrate a Lord. If not, I'll very much consider dropping the infiltrating all together and save the points.

One other consideration will be my autocannon heavy Havocs who look to be losing their tank-hunting skill. I'll be tempted to switch in a unit of Obliterators, along with my 2 anti-infantry Predators...

I'm likely to keep my Nurgle/Slaanesh alignment.
