0 Monday Musings of a Mantic #11: Khorneflakes (2000pt List)

"Conan! What is best in life?" "To crush your enemies -- See them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!"

Conan is without a doubt my god dam hero.  He punches god dam camels right in their face and has no quads about it. Who the hell sicker punches a camel? Conan and followers of khorne that's who.

Over the years of being in this hobby I have let Games Workshop turn my nose into a bloody cherry pie on more than one occassion. I'm sure that's each of you have as well.  Pricing hikes, rule changes, obsolete units and other back alley shenanigans aside I have been able to throw a few counter punches over the years. Specifically I like to model my Space Marines as a specific chapter say Space Wolves and theN model then with a splash of Khorne.  This is the case for my Renegade Space Wolves The Ravenous.  I play them as both Space Wolves and Chaos Space Marine.  My Dark Angels I was able to backhand GW by fusing them with Nurgle.  BAM!!! A one two punch.

The list below is the implementation of The Ravenous in their Chaos form.  The list is focused o n shoving a fist of Khorne down my opponents throat.  With 2 winged Daemon Princes and a Heldrake that is easily achieved.  In behind them is the two rhinos of Khorne Berzerkers, the Chaos Lord on a Juggernaut, the two Heralds of Khorne on Juggernauts and the Bloodletters that are 20 strong.  The other two smaller Bloodletters squads are kept as reinforcements via demonic summoning.

Points = 2000
Power Level = 123
Detachments = Vanguard Detachment & Battalion Detachment
Command Points = 7

Vanguard Detachment: The Ravenous
180 = Daemon Prince of Chaos Khorne, Wings, Malefic Talons x 2

Dedicated Transport
072 = Chaos Rhino: Combi Bolter
072 = Chaos Rhino: Combi Bolter

Battalion Detachment: The Risen

100 = Herald of Khorne on Juggernaut
100 = Herald of Khorne on Juggernaut

180 = Bloodletters x 20
090 = Bloodletters x 10
090 = Bloodletters x 10

The Lord buffs the berzerkers along with the Daemon Princes.  The Princes buff all daemons which include the Heldrake while the Heralds buff the Bloodletters and Daemon Princes.  I've played enough games to realize that your auras cannot be ever where.  This list has enough redundancy to keep the synergy going even if I split the army up or if a Character gets heart punched.

One if the best buffs that this list delivers is the Heralds buffing the Daemon Princes from strength 7 to 8.  With this they are now able to wound T4 units on 2s and most vehicles (T7) on 3s.  If playing against T3 units the Bloodletters will also be wounding on 2s.  Once in close combat the sheer amount of attacks will make most opponents abandon their God and turn to the Blood God itself.

Thoughts, queries and counter punches are always welcome.  Come at me BRO!!!
