LATD: Slannesh or Khorne?
« on: December 2, 2006, 06:46:01 AM »
i know that with the ancient enemies rules i cant take slannesh and khorne in the same army and alot of people are telling me that i should take hq aspiring Champs all equipped the same way.  i was wondering if anyone had any input as to what mark i should take?  i like the khorne mark with demonic mutation and a weapon for max attacks, but at the same time i really like the mark of slannesh that gives me the 5 initiative and the access to my favorite piece of wargear, Combat Drugs!  any input would be nice

I guess I find undivided the most useful.  MoK on the champions is more useful than MoS though, especailly if you end up giving them a powerfist, which is always a good idea.  But... it shouldn't really matter.  LatD aren't as restricted as normal chaos armies when it comes to ancient enemies.   
The thing I hate the most about 40K is people who amass the largest possible quantities of their Codex's most powerful unit and then proceed to call it "theme".

I'd go for Mark Of Khorne.  If you're putting a Champion in with Mutants, they can't Infiltrate or use Move Through Cover, so you're not losing much other than points by putting him in Terminator Armor.  Having such a devastating CC monster in that very slow squad will freak out most opponents into shooting that squad.

Combat drugs are too dangerous for a one wound model. GO with the Mark of Khrone for killiness, high initiative is not as much of a concern when you are surrounded by a wall of mutants.
