Default What Legion/Chapter will you be playing in September?

Heya,

I know, we still have another month to go, but it's fair to say we can at least think forward a little and see what we want out of our Chaos armies. The aspect of the new releases which intrigues me the most is which Legions/Chapters will be played during and after the new releases.

I'm stuck, to be honest. :P

It's quite hard to choose, as the Legion rules have been scrapped we now have more room to breathe, which is great, but also confusing. I like the World Eaters/Khorne, they have a awesome colour scheme, cool units, and some fierce fluff, yet, I want to eat from all sides of the table. It's hard picturing Chaos Terminators daubed in red and brass colours carrying a Nurgle Icon into battle, and that's where I'm left stumped. It's all fair and well doing the Black Legion, or Word Bearers, but how many other people will be playing them? Lots.

Renegade Chapters don't really rock my boat, but if I like what I see in the new Codex, then perhaps I may lean towards them instead of a Legion.

But, my insane ramblings end here, and this is where you come in. What Legion/Chapter will you be playing in September and why?

Thanks.

If I am drawn to the whispers of Chaos with this new release I'll be Night Lords, my favorite chapter. I like the psychological warfare over the bloodlust of other legions.

Well I'm glad I've put my Undivided force on hold as I'm now considering Tzeentch from what I've read. My main plan was to focus on an Infantry based army with Bikes as a shock unit and anti-tank and possibly Slaanesh units for backup in larger games.

Now the Rubrics are looking really good with a 4+ invun save, AP3 bolters and their Sorceres getting Force Weapons as standard it getting hard to resist the whispers of Tzeentch. Then you've got the amazing new spawn models that I just have to get.

Maybe a Undivded/Tzeentch army? With lots of spawn ;D

I'll give you one guess... :P













Guessed yet? Good.

My army will most likely be consisting primarily of marines and perhaps some posessed. I am going mainly on models so a dreadnaught as well perhaps. I intend on converting a HQ as well and might get some spawn for the gift of chaos spell as well. (And for my warhammer army. )

Looks like I'll have to imitate Hadhfang... :P

Apart from Slaanesh though, I admire Nurglite marines (that Toughness!) - they allow you to execute pretty straightforward tactics without any involvement of Khorne (phoey! :P).
I also have a soft spot for Night Lords. Unfortunately, my friend might collect a small army of them, so I won't be allowed that...

My walking Thousand Sons army shall never cease their shamble. They are apparently going to get more effective, and Magnus knows they need it.

I, too, will be trying to beef up my Thousand Sons force, as my Termie Sorceror from Medusa V seems anxious to get a bodyguard of the new Termies... (What with the apparent demise of his good ol' Daemonic Rune)

And who can complain about the Brethern getting an invulnerable save and AP3 bolters? The extra wound was nice, but my opponents take too many lascannons, railguns, battlecannons, and brightlances- Imagine the joy of seeing a railgun shot "bounce" off a Rubric marine in the open... *Sighs happily*

Death Guard! I actually just made a trade on the forums and won an ebay bid today. I did lose out on most of my bids but I got two assault weapons which is what I really needed. Now I just need to save up for some termies and vindicators. > Oh, and at least 1,500 points of guard to play LaTD for Apocalypse games.

As for why I want to play them, it pretty simple really. I love zombies and these guys are not only zombies but super soldier zombies. I love the idea of them lumbering forward, getting blasted by gunfire blowing chunks of them away but they still keep coming. Also the modeling potential is huge, maybe more so that any other cult or legion. I want to make some really high quality conversions and paintjobs with these guys.

I'm keeping them pure Death Guard, none of the stuff that wasn't previously allowed will be used and they will stick to sacred number squad sizes. Massed infantry with termies and really big guns backing them up. Oh and I can forget the daemons.

Pure Tzeentch, the only way to go :P

And i'm thinking of starting up an Alpha legion as well.
