World Eaters

Army Lists

This a bit of a test to see how well the different parts of google integrate...

Extended Version of army list, CSM part

Allied Khorne Daemons

Those two would create a 2000pt army. Minimum field is 1500. Should grind up a 1750 as well, have all 33 lists ready to drop.
What is the current state of that army?



Hq- Kharn, Blood thirster (both might need a bit of a paint touchup)

Troops- all units ready to rumble. (Skulltakers, Neo-sanguine, Steelbiters, Ravagers), Bloodletters sorted

Heavy- Possessed Vindicator

In need of Paint

Elite- Dreadnought

In Need of Conversion

Heavy- Vindicator, needs more Khorne-plates etc and then painting

Need to Buy

Elite- Another Dreadnought (excuse to get forgeworld world eater specific one)
Forgeworld World Eater Dreadnought

Heavy- Another Vindicator

Tempted to Get

Plastic Blood letters to make them more standardised
Another Vindicator, at least the cannon and dozer- it kicks over the old one
A converted unit of beserkers to use my favourite heads.. Replace the neo-sanguine with mutant legionaires

Next update to post I'll stick photos of said units in. Interesting that the first unit that I get the urge to tinker with is my original favorite.

I don't think I'll buy the "tempted" stuff until I've run this a few times.

Armies part 1

Space-borne, Space Marines

The idea is to represent the planetary landing force. Although there would have to be some serious fluff amendments, I'm going to run a combined Carachardon//Lamenters force. ie a space marine // blood angels force with an eye to space combat, and close combat.

Drop pods
Land Speeder Storms
Jump pack troops
a Storm raven

The colours are interesting- Lamenters are somewhat knight-like, pennants, heraldry etc and a somewhat chivalrous history. And based on mustard yellow.
The carachardons are shark coloured, greys etc and have polynesian tattoo style markings

Minimum cost is not cheap- 3 drop pods with tacticals, scout squad, land speeder storm : 930pts without gear, on the blood angels side- jump pack assault squad and stormraven with hq is at least 400pts

Ork Space Pirates, Mob of Flash Gits

The orginal idea here was to make use of the large number of orks I have and also make use of minis used in dark heresy roleplay. I also have grown meme-fond of the Ork-Pirate in a tricorne...

Flash Gits: as many as feasible, one unit tricked out with Captain Badrukk and a pain boy
Nob and Mega Nob unit with warbosses making scoring units
some bombers - maybe one of each, emphasis on bombs not shooting
extra boys for more scoring and general body soak, emphasis on rokkits

Eldar Exodites, Space Elves on Dinosaurs

This is a grey knights "counts as" army. Why? you ask- because each model in the army is an individual and I need some scoring and the base sizes for the paladins are just big enough..

Draigo- (Prince on Carnosaur with shimmersheild)
Veteran Dreadnoughts (Warwalkers re-configured+beefed up as Eldar Knights from old epic)
Paladins (Dire avengers on Cold Ones)
Dreadknights (1 or more eldar lords on large dinosaur back)
Minimum flavour- 690pts

Iron Angels, Ultra Heavy Armoured Company Blood Angels

Long ago I had this crazy idea of a Landraider mounted company of marines. Now realistically the points in all those landraiders is rather wasted. But what if you went with that? And if the radius of librarian powers when they are transported are from the vehicle..then shield of sanguinus makes a force of up to 5 landraiders hard as nails..

BA Assault Squad, minus pump packs, plus Land raider x?
Minimum flavour- 730pts

Harlequins, lots of harlequins

One way of getting more than 30 harlequins (i have 63 models accumulated over the years) on the field would be to ally eldar and dark eldar
Minimum cost for the bare dark eldar and 30 harlequins is 890
Farseer, rangers (mimes) and 10 more harlequins is 440

Giger, Tyranid Hive Fleet

Being a Aliens fan and liking melee I'm looking at a tyranid army. I have a few of the models, very few converted however.

Tervigon- alien egg laying Queen
Genestealers with broodlord- alien warriors
Ripperswarms- face huggers and little aliens
Termagants- smaller aliens (from birthing queen and as a unit)

I'm also thinking Deathleaper and Parasite of Mortrex for the psychological warfare aspect I think a aliens giger army should have.

Blood for the Blood God

Once my central force, now mostly ignored. Under the new edition I'm tempted to give it another run. Tactically, the idea here is to have hard melee capable units as scoring and force board position using the other parts of the army. Allied Chaos Daemons with Chaos Space marines

Kharn- if you are going to declare for the Blood God, why not?
Bloodthirster- Allied
Melee only Dreadnought- maybe more than 1
Khorne beserkers in 8 man squads- more than 2 of these, half with power fists, half with a melta-bomb and power sword, a plasma pistol or 2 per unit, maybe personal icons on half the units
Bloodletters- Allied, probably only 1
Vindicators, one possessed (use Cannon of Khorne model)

I think that should do. 2 space marine armies, 2 eldar armies, tyranids, orks and chaos. Although I might buy some Tau, Necron and Greyknights as one offs (and give painted as Christmas presents). I have Sisters of Battle but the current Codex is.. yesh. I have assassins and arcoflaggellents, seraphim and sisters squads but no incentive to field them. I also have a 30 strong terminator strike force which would be fielded as Dark Angels but that seems to be flavor of the month, so.. no. I'd also like to add my deathwatch killteam/ sternguard to something. Maybe leave these guys as allies to be tacked onto armies.

It also strikes me that I should add some artwork and links to PDf army lists.
