I read your last battle report and I think Khorne especially benefits from being mono-faction. The Initiative and especially the Stategy rating are extremely important for them getting close.

The other benefit Khorne has is cheap(er) activation counts. Khorne can have 4 Support formations for 900 points, Undivided/Slaanesh 1050 and Nurgle/Tzeentch 1100. That's at least a 3rd Scorpion or 7-8 demons and quite possibly an extra activation (fighters).


Yeah, Khorne has some advantages, but since their primary strenght is close combat (which can be very tricky to use, and against Skimmers even impossible) I think they're always going to be inherently weak for that reason. I agree that they really benefit from the extra strategy and the better initiative when engaging.

Thinking of two improvements they might get: One is +5 cm move for the Khorne Chaos Knights, and perhaps it being easier to summon Fleshhounds too.

Those look great.

How big did they end up being?

I'm considering these...

for about the same price.


Here's a size comparison from the latest battlereport. That Dropzone model looks like it could work very well indeed, and for significantly less effort in conversion. Thanks for the tip!

A picture of my Chaos Knight conversions of the Onslaught Miniatures Knights, specifically the Khorne Mauler and the Tzeentch Weirder. The conversion is simply buying one of each of Onslaught's Knight types, and swapping one weapon from one arm to another.

Next picture is some Knights I've made from Forge World Servitors, will probably use these for the Undivided and the Nurgle Knights.

Probably about the same size then. The Dropzone ones are listed as 50mm.

Still probably a bit large for 3DC, but not too bad. It evidently comes with an additional gun option as well, which might be chopped up and mounted up front to represent the Demolisher cannon.

edit - I also noticed a typo.

Chaos Warlord titans may exchange one or more non-close combat Battle weapons for a single Support weapon.

The red text should probably be deleted as it's slightly confusing. I'm assuming "Eye of the Gods" would allow a Warlord to take a second Support Weapon, correct?

Yeah, that was a typo. Thanks for spotting it. And Eye of the Gods can only be taken by Chaos Reavers! This is to differentiate Chaos Warlords from the Chaos Emperor titan.

Ah ha,

If only I could actually read. I knew there was a reason I hadn't tried to do that in my earlier list.

Is there a thematic reason for the Reaver being the only one that can get Leader?

Well, the Supreme Commander ability includes Leader too. Thematically I guess it's about the list consisting of dead, possessed hulks of metal stomping around. Not much leadership going on!

Also, Chaos Undivided Titans can of course take the Command Head, which also gives leader.
