*gets the list out to answer some questions*
Shouldn't the "4x" be written in front of and not after the brimstone missiles?
I can do that. Consider it done in the upcoming update...
Does the Zigganook recieve 1 extra FF attack per Heavy Las Blaster (for a total of 6 FF attacks)?
No, just +1FF for a total of 3FF due to be a 2DC WE. I can see how that could be read differently however. Maybe I will re-position that 4x...
Would the Mole be better suited as a War Engine, being as it can transport 4 units, thats quite a lot for a AV sized vehicle?
Hmm. Squat lists also have it as an AV. I would not mind it as a WE either and I was actually thinking that I should put in the Hellbore as the 'giant mechanical worm' alternative. I will place that on the list for consideration as well.
I'm really liking the look of this army
Happy to hear it. I am currently spending time replacing formations at present and removinbg the '1 per 1000' restriction I have there so it should really open the list up more.
I also have Apoc working on some idea for altrernative support engines (Engines of Hashvaht). Here is some of the exciting ideas he wrote and is going off to work on:Reason/Fluff: Regular squats do not have tanks ...... chaos squats built some of the Khorne war engines. As the CSs lost squat technology or were unable to maintain it, their remaining knowledge of squat tech mingled with their dabbling in chaos daemon engines resulting in an eclectic mix of non-standardized CS armour.* Unit looks would range from prototype daemon engine, to squat/khorne gear mixes, to captured/looted vehicles (from slave raids etc?) refitted by the CS engineers.
This is definately something I can work with and should add to the list either as a formation (on it's own or to replace the Artillery support), or even as upgrades to existent units.
One thing that sticks out (to me) like a sore thumb is the Fearless on the Death Dealers. I personally do not like it, however if I am to keep parity with the Chaos lists, then I guess it stays...
Next release for feedback will be V1.2. I bailed Morgan Vening up before he left for Gencon and we came up with the following structure:
Core Formations - as current
Chaos Squat Support - purchased on a 1:1 basis with a 'Chaos Squat Core' formation - includes the Damburi
Slave Support - purchased on a 2:1 basis with a 'Chaos Squat Core' formation - These would include every unit that is not a Chaos Squat or Damburi.
The restrictions on 1 per 1000 (as advised above) will be removed for playtests - open up the list and let's see what happens
Road Priest would be priced at 25 points (currently free)
Slaves to gain 4+ CC
Doombane to up it's firepower to 2BP
To be reviewed:
- Bikers are being reviewed to see if a 3+ CC is justified
- Moles as WE
- Hellbore inclusion
- Option whether 100% of bikes can be replaced by Warbuggies - currently swaying against this (personally) as I want the 'Mad Max' feel to this unit.
More later this week. Keep the ideas coming as the list is still developing
I do like Onyx's Giant Mechanical Worm....chaos Hellbore anyone?
