Brassclaw's Horde of Khorne
« on: December 13, 2012, 02:04:04 AM »
Hey Berzerkers and cultists

I have been playing WH40K for the past 13 years and 11 of those years have a Worldeaters army under my care. So with this new codex and edition coming out, has bought new change with in my horde. My Worldeaters army during 5th edition was at 4000pts strong with upgrades and goodies. But since i have moved to a new city, this means my place has gotten smaller and less room is available for my hobby. So In light of this, i have down sized the horde to 3000pts, mostly selling the older models such as my metal terminators and some of the more point sinks like my khornate bikers, I have then used to money to buy some of the new models that came out. So here is the list that i have built.

HQ
Chaos Lord with Mark of Khorne, Juggernaut, Axe of Blind Fury, Sigil of Corruption and Gift of Mutation.
Kharn the Betrayer

TROOPS
5X8 Berzerkers with 2 plasma pistols, Veterans of The Long War , Berzerker Champion with Powerfist. Each squad is mounted in a rhino with a dirge caster

ELITES
8 Possessed with Mark of Khorne and Icon of wrath. Mounted in a Rhino

FAST ATTACK
2X8 Raptors with Mark of Khorne, 2 melta guns, Icon of Wrath, Veterans of the Long War, Raptor Champion with Powerfist.

HEAVY SUPPORT
Predator with Twin-linked Lascannon Turret, and lascannon sponsons
Defiler with Reaper auto cannon, dirge caster, power scourge
Forgefiend with 2 hades autocannons and 1 ectoplasma cannon

This is all comes in at 2998. Like i said before, there have been a few changes, First and probably most obvious is the forgefiend. Since it wasn't around last edition, i have trade him in and sold off my 2nd predator(which was an older model from 2nd edition). I got him no only have anti-troop but for anti-flyer, seeing that my list was lacking in anti-flyer. I have also upgraded the turrent on the predator to twin-link lascannon, seeing that the upgrades put it at the same cost in the previous edition. The defiler has jump in price, but has gain a few goodies too. I have notice that it has 4 HP. Fast attack has remand the same, the raptors have gotten more cheaper and more abilities like fear. My only problem with him is that they aren't fearless so they may run. I have drop the bikers to reduce the point limit. Elites have gone through a change, I have drop my dreadnought/hellbrute and my terminators and have just kept the Possessed to act as Kharn's escort, the Icon of Wrath should insure that Kharn and his homeboys get into CC and Kharn's warlord trait saves me the cost of veterans on the possessed. HQ has gone through a change, Kharn is still there, usually running as my warlord for smaller games, and i have drop the expensive Daemon Prince, for the Juggernaut Lord. I'm going to attach him to a raptors, so that that raptor will become fearless and the raptor can protect the lord from tanks and walkers.

Who says Rhinos are endangered species? I have 6 of them in my captivity.

OLD SCHOOL RHINO



I have thought about selling these for a while, but buying new rhino while these ones work just fine seems wrong.

So what a worldeaters horde without Kharn right?


Forgefiend painted but not based.


Raptors, Anti-tank unit/Juggernaut Lord escort



So i bit of army news. First i'm dropping the 2nd raptors squad for a Heldrake, hopefully i will get him for x-mas. Next I"m going to build a traitor guard allied detachment for the horde and then maybe expand on it later if i feel like it. Here's the list.
Company Command Squad with lascannon team, plasma gun, 1 Body Guard Grenadires, heroic officer with power weapon
2 Veterans squads with 2 plasma guns and 1 flamer in each, both are mounted in Chimeras
1 Vendetta
2 Leman Russes with 3 heavy bolters

The forgefiend certainly looks different. Which gold did you use? And did you find that the feet were really hard to get level? Mine ended up all over the place so Im not even going to try and base it. It can balance all by itself.

Looks really good mate, have you considered throwing some washes or glazes over your guys?

I reckon a couple of coats of Agrax Earthshade (Devlan Mud) and a glaze of Bloodletter would help with definition.

Any chance of some closer and sharper pics of the troops at all? Love how its pure Khorne- you dont see that too often :)

The gold is shinning gold and yes he was hard to get his feet on right, mostly the back 2. If you were to look at them, they would look like hes walking on the insides of his feet.

To be honest, I'm not much of a painter nor a photographer. I will probably get some mud later maybe after christmas. As for the pics, this is the best i can do for now

Thanks for posting guys

I found the front two harder because there is no ridge to line them up to like there is with the rear.

Death from Above!

Yup, my heldrake came home today. Surprisingly a easy build. The model has grown on me, the first time a saw it i didn't like it. I still don't like the caboose. Hopefully he'll get painted next weekend.

So more stuff came in my mail box today....Traitor Guard

the renegade militia conversation pack is great to look at. Each guy looks different enough, they are full of character. The pain is dealing with super glue and the many parts that you have to attach to the resin torso. My fingers will never be the same.

Not to bring back the dead, but with the winter months ahead i getting back into the hobby again. Again I have been tinkering with lists again.

WORLDEATERS
1X Chaos Lord with Mark of Khorne, Juggernaugt, Axe of Blind Fury, Gift of Mutation, Sigil of Corruption and Vets of the Long war pts 185
Kharn pts 160
5X8 Berzerkers, 2 plasma pistols, Vets of the Long War, Berzerker Champ. with Powerfist, Rhino with extra armour and dirge caster pts 1375
1x8 Possessed with Mark of Khorne, Vets of the Long War, Possessed Champ, Icon of Wrath Rhino with extra armour and dirge caster Pts 318
1X8 Terminators with Mark of Khorne, Vets of the Long War, Lightning Claws, Terminator Champ with Lightning Claws pts 354
1X8 Raptors with Mark of Khorne, Vets of the Long War, 2 Melta Guns, Icon of Wrath, Raptor Champ with Powerfist pts 238
1 Heldrake with Baleflamer pts 170
1 Forgefiend with 2 hades autocannons and 1 ectoplasma cannon pts 200
1X3 Obilterators with Mark of Khorne and Vets of the Long War pts 231
1 Chaos Predator with Twin-linked lascannon and lascannon sponsons and Dirge Caster
SUMMARY: So this army comes to just over 3000pts and i'm missing two units from it, The Obilterators are next on the 'TO BUY" list, and because i'm not a huge fan on the GW models, i'm going to be taking some centurions and converting them. The terminators unit I can take or leave it, i was thinking about deep strike them or cutting the unit to 5 and throwing them in a Landraider, that do you guys think?

TRAITOR GUARD
1X7 Command Squad with plasma gun, lascannon team, 2 body guards, Grenadires Doctrine and Krak Grenades. Heroic Senior Officer with Power Axe pts 150
4X10 Veterans with 2 plasma guns, 1 flamer, Grenadires Doctrine, Vet Sgt. with power axe and Chimera pts 800
3 Vendettas with 3 twin-linked lascannons pts 390
2 Griffons pts 150
1X3 Leman Russes with 3 Heavy Bolters pts 510 

SUMMARY: So a lot of incomplete, I have 2 of the russes, and 2 of the Veterans squads done and of course the command squad. Rumors are saying that guard are going to be getting a update soonish, so i'm waiting before i make any big buys with these guys.

DAEMONS
1 Bloodthister with Greater Reward and Exalted Reward Pts 300
3 Heralds of Khorne with Exalted Locus of Wrath pts 240
Karanak pts 120
1X5 Bloodcrushers with Banner of Blood pts 245
1X20 Bloodletters with Banner of Blood pts 220
2X20 Bloodletters with Instrument of Chaos pts 215
1 Skull Cannon pts 125
2 Soul Grinders with Harvester Cannon, Iron Claw, Daemon of Khorne and Phlegm Bombardment pts 330

SUMMARY: So the Bloodthister is my old daemon prince model that i was using, since hes converted from a Bloodthister he should fit in fine. If you are wondering where everyone else fits, the Heralds got with the bloodletters, and Karanak goes with the crushers. Once my brother marines are gone, i will start on these guys.

APOCALYPSE
Lord of Skulls with Ichor Cannon and Skullhurler pts 958
Formation: Legionnaire Warband
??? pts 564
SUMMARY: So i like the Lord of Skulls with this setup, as a template lobber. The Legionnarie warband formation is a no brainier fluff wise. The list as it stands has 564pts open. I have a few ideas, first being a super heavy tank from the guard side, Stormlord, Shadowsword, or the Baneblade come to mind. Another idea, would be to shoot for the Cohort of Blood, getting the 8X8 units of bloodletters is easy enough and so it getting a skull taker. It would only inch me towards my goal, but its a thought.

Tell me, what do you think?
