To be or Not to Be...

Chaos anyway...

I am just loving that Icon of Khorne...I mean really, really love it...yes 30 points I could use on something else...like a Icon of Nurgle and give everyone a 1+ on toughness...make those dice a bit harder to hit me against everyone else right...or I can get an invulv save with the Icon of Tezh...WOW that would work against one guy I know right off the top thank you Mr. 12 shots you SOB...and I dont mean the sisters...But what about the other Icon...you mean the Icon that lets me hit first in Close Combat against other Marine armies and therefor almost every other army out there...*except Mr. 12 Shots family I know...*

But like I just said...hit before or get 10 more hits...

so I go back with the I love Khorne...and I enjoy placing the skulls of the Ultra Templar at the bottom of his Skull Thorne...That and my Chaplain Faust gets to kill EVEN MORE NOW...throw a little title of Lord on him and BOOM...evil man walking...

Had a chance last week to play the Chaos list...pretty much split my 5,000 point Space Marine army down the middle...my brother played my tried and true 10 win Space Marine army...complete with Terminators, Land Raider Crusaider, Whirlwind and a number of scouts and everything I could not use in my own Chaos list...but that was ok...I got a squad of 1k Sons and some Bezekers...a 7x4 board was used some buildings and walls in the middle...so on and so forth...got to use my Chaos Lord with Jump Pack with his 10 man Raptor Squad (ok...really was a 10 man assault squad...or was it 15...man I love that 5-20 man rule for chaos...haha...went up against a Chapter master with Power Sword attached to a 10 man Assault Squad with a Powerfist and a few plasma pistols...) Kept the Chaos Squads at 10 men for the game except the 1k sons at 8 (9 with the Socc)...and the Bezekers were at 12 men...

Turn one...I killed those scout snipers with AP3 bolter rounds and some flamers...they died in seconds...I can still see their little bodies burn before the might that is Chaos...even Scout Sergeant Telion died in a very very painful manner...bet he wished he joined the Terminators now for his 2+ armour save he will never get...haha...

I had completely forgot how man guns my Space Marine army had...but I guess because they were fighting men they had fought next to for so long and now had to fight against...They just could not do it...and not a single man fell...well the ones in range stayed alive...all one squad...haha...Whirlwind scattered to the far reachs off the board away from any trouble...and his Chapter Master with Assault Marines jumped forward to attack me fallen Raptors and Chaos Lord with them...but came up to short...way to short to even assault me...hehehe...

His Razorbacks fired into my Land Raider that all of the sudden could only hold 10 men...what the heck...well there was only 5 terminators in there anyway...no worries...but cover saves made those shots useless...then it was my turn...

everyone moved forward all 12 inches in their rhinos and Land Raiders...the Bezekers went the six and rolled for running making it another 6...snarling right at their uptight brothers not even 10 inches away on the board...the 1k sons...6 whole inches...They fired all their shots again...another squad minus the Sergeant with a Power Sword fell...instant death was pleasing the Dark Gods today...

By now my Raptors were in assaulting range...with two close combat weapons...plus the Icon of Khorne...41 attacks plus the Chaos Lord with only a Power Weapon *I had a Deamon Weapon elsewhere and I wanted only to try one and you will see why in a second* with his Mark of Khorne...47 attacks on the charge...a number you will see multiple times mind you...against his 10 assault marines...with their 23-25 attacks base...really now...haha...I have 36 attacks base...but I was assaulting...all my attacks were thrown...40 of them HIT...HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL...22 of them wounded...wait 18 saved...stupid 3+ armour saves...I ended up being hit a whole 6 times...5 of them were saved...THANK YOU 3+ SAVES...haha

At this point he opened fire with every bolter he had on hand...and some I dont think he did but no matter I was in rapid fire range and it was my own fault...Stupid Mark of Khorne...hehe...so many shots were fired...you know how many I lost...out of 6 squads fired into...including the Bezekers, the 1k Sons the Chaos Squads...I lost not a single man...because out of all his shots he fired...he only wounded me a messily 12 times...all 12 were saved...PAY HOMAGE TO THE DARK GODS...by the way...he had about 50 men rapid firing into me so out of 100 shots only 12 hitting me the math gods were laughing with my dark gods at this point...

Now it was time for me to assault...and assault I did...his Terminators all died before the onslaught of 40+ attacks...there is only so many times a 2+ save will save you...you still get to deal with that 1...and he dealt with it quite well I add by the way...after the Bezekers and a squad of Chaos marines 80 attacks on the charge...I made sure I was the one assaulting this whole game...I think I may have fired 3 dozen shots the whole game and those were from the 1k Sons...which ended up in Close Combat against that Lone Sergeant...who well died when he charged...I like that Invule save they got...my brother did not...By this turn the Chapter Master was alone and had killed 3 men...only to fall before his fallen brother who was now a Chaos Lord with the Powers of the Dark Gods in his hands...

By turn two every Squad that was alive was now in Close Combat...his 10 man Terminator squad had done the combat tactics to be in two places at once...and was down to three men including his Chaplain... and he was down to a 4 man Stern Guard squad and 2 tact squads...I had lost 6 men so far...he was dying by the droves...

The end of turn two and the begining of turn three was the end of of a squad of Chaos Marines to those 3 Terminators who turned around and pumped lead into the besekers who were in front of another squad of Chaos Marines...their own powerfist included...I never able to deepstrike in my other 5 man Terminator Squad and my Terminator Lord with Deamon Weapon of Khorne finally got locked into combat...with holy mother of pearl...13 base attacks now...ALL FROM A DEAMON WEAPON...this would reap a fearsome tally...and by the end of Turn Three...his army was gone...no one surivived...the Razorbacks were sitting their in smoke...his Land Raider was blown up...his own Rhinos were no more then craters...and the men...could not bring themselves to kill their fallen battle brothers...not even to save their own lives...the two Dreadnoughts tried to rally at the last turn but some well placed Melta Bombs made sure that those in their walking tombs never walked again...

I however faired far better then he did...not even 25 men were killed...out of 9 squads in the game...and not even able to Deep Strike my other Terminator Squad with Twin Lightning Claws...

I think I am just loving that Icon of Khorne...I mean really, really love it
