So i was looking through the chaos codex, and i thought about how some people build there lists on a theme. Usually as a chaos player, you build you list on a mark of chaos. As a Worldeater player, i have built an army around the mark of khorne. So then i thought about building a list that wasn't based on the usually mark of chaos, but something less obvious. So as the title suggests, i thought i would build around Fleshmetal armour. Here's how i would go at it.
- Uber Mutilator (Count as Chaos Lord)
- Uber Obliterator (Count as Sorcerer)
- Fleshmetal High Priest (Count as Typhus)
So the whole point of the Cult is to put out as much Fleshmetal gear or 2+ saves. Now at first looks, you would say that Warpsmiths would probably be the choice of this list as they have Fleshmetal. But this list wont have much tanks, so picking them might be a waste of that ability. The next choice would be pick a chaos lord and deck him out hand to hand combat and Terminator armour. This would basically make him into a uber mutilator. You could also take Sorcerer and take him with Terminator armour and some other goodies which would make him into a uber obilterator. Last option would be to take a count as Typhus, since he has Terminator and comes with his own pile of goodies, He would make a great choice.
Every cult needs cultists and this list will probably need cheap bodies for objective takers and sitters, If you take Typhus, you can make plague Zombie cultists.
Yup, probably not the best choice tactically, but this is the cult of fleshmetal. I would use them to guard your Obits or cultists
Not actually sure to put here. The fast attack section doesn't have a unit with fleshmetal. Spawn might work as a choice, they could be cultists and warriors who have failed on are now kept as pets or something along those lines. Also you can never go wrong with Heldrakes as a tactical choice, plus they are kind of like living metal being daemon engines.
- Daemon Engines
Pretty obvious what goes here. Obilters and Daemon Engines.
So there you have it. An alternative look on the themed chaos army and tactically viable IMHO.
