Red Corsairs 2000
« on: April 7, 2019, 02:34:27 PM »
Hi guys,

So, this is my first attempt at trying to make a Chaos list. I'm not very familiar with the Stratagems or some of the greater combos, but keep in mind that I'm not trying to be really competitive with it. That said, I'd like it to hold it's own, maybe be semi-competitive, and pack a reasonable punch.

So far, I really like the Scourged and Red Corsairs. I keep looking at Black Legion so that I can use Abaddon, but I think I'm more drawn to Renegades at this point.

So, without further ado, here is the list that I've been working on!

Legion: Red Corsairs
Specialist Detachment: Soulforged Pack

Lord Discordant on Helstalker:
Autocannon, Techno-virus injector
MoK, Reaver Lord Warlord Trait, Talisman of Burning Blood

Sorcerer in Terminator Armour:
Combi-bolter, Force Sword, MoS
Delightful Agonies, Prescience

Dark Apostle:
MoK, Soultearer Portent, Wrathful Entreaty

Chaos Space Marine Squad:
Aspiring Chamption: Chainsword and Bolt Pistol
7x Marine w/ Boltgun
Marine w/ Heavy Bolter
Marine w/ Meltagun

Chaos Space Marine Squad:
Aspiring Chamption: Chainsword and Bolt Pistol
7x Marine w/ Boltgun
Marine w/ Heavy Bolter
Marine w/ Meltagun

Chaos Space Marine Squad:
Aspiring ChampionL Combi-bolter, Power Fist
14x Marine w/ Chainsword
MoK, Icon of Wrath

Chaos Space Marine Squad:
Aspiring ChampionL Combi-bolter, Power Fist
14x Marine w/ Chainsword
MoK, Icon of Wrath

Chosen Squad
Champion w/ Combi-plasma, Power Axe
4x Chosen w/ Plasma Gun, Chainsword
MoS
Chosen Squad w/ Combi-Melta, Power Axe
4x Chosen w/ Melta Gun, Chainsword
MoS

Maulerfiend: Lasher Tendrils, Mark of Khorne
Maulerfiend: Lasher Tendrils, Mark of Khorne
Maulerfiend: Lasher Tendrils, Mark of Khorne

Chaos Rhino: Combi-bolter 2x, Havoc Launcher
Chaos Rhino: Combi-bolter 2x, Havoc Launcher

1995 / 2000

So, the plan for this that I've formed, is this...

30 Chaos Marines w/ Chainswords and PF Champions will charge forward and create a screen around the Maulerfiends and Lord Discordant bomb that'll race up the field behind them. Thanks to the renegades rule, everything in this army can advance and charge in the same turn. Lord Discordant has the talisman of Burning Blood, so that he can reroll failed charges. Both CC Marine Squads have the icon of Wrath, so that they can also reroll failed charges. I'm not sure what the MoK does for Maulerfiends, but I thought I'd take it!

Did I mention I was taking the Soulforged Pack Specialist Detachment for an extra 2" movement on my Daemon Engines?

Chosen Squads are meant for the Rhinos, and meant to hunt down specific targets that look like trouble on the battlefield. They have the MoS for some Endless Cacophony shenanigans, I think five melta shots or 10 Plasma shots, doubled in one turn, is a great tool to have on the table.

Marines w/ Bolters, Melta, and Heavy Bolters are meant to hold the back lines and provide long-ranged support. The Sorcerer will be back there with one of the squads, if not both, and providing that Delightful Agonies buff to ignore wounds and prescience to buff their hit rolls.

Also, the Dark Apostle will be traveling with the CC Marine Squads, using the Soultearer Portent to buff the wound rolls, or his vanilla buff to re-roll failed hit rolls.

I would watch a few games, maybe have a few small games before trying to build a 2k point list. 40k is in a bit of an odd spot at the moment, even things with 3+ saves can get blown off the table thanks to armour modifiers and mass fire power.
