2500pt Chaos
« on: March 18, 2017, 12:22:56 PM »
Just looking for your views on the below list :) It's pretty much all I own so it's designed more as an All-comers list and friendly play. It's not painted yet so can still change. Rules are using the BFG:XR.


Chaos Lord [50] +1 Reroll [50] -75pts

Desolator Battleship -300pts

Repulsive class Grand Cruiser [230] +1 Shield [10] 45cm Lances [15] -255pts
Styx class Heavy cruiser -260pts

2x Devestation cass Cruisers [190] -380pts
3x Murder class cruisers [170] -510pts
2x Slaughter class cruisers [165] -330pts

3x Infidel class Raiders [40] -120pts
3x Infidel class Raiders [40] -120pts
6x Iconoclast Destroyers [25] -150pts

Good fleet.
Carnages instead of Murders would be more effective in the fleet, but hey, friendly play.

I went with Murders purely because, fluff-wise, there are more of them. I could swap them out for the Carnage class but that's 30pts I need to find from somewhere. I could drop an escort?

What are your experiences with Infidels? I haven't bought them yet so they are the one thing I can happily change around.

:)
My standard 1500pts chaos renegade fleet runs six Infidels.
:)
Cheap torpedoes in a Chaos fleet. Good for removing enemy fighters on CAP.
Pretty fast to redeploy.
And three combined is six torpedoes in one wave. IN style.

So, yeah, I think they are good and serve well.

Cheers.  :) I suppose that means I need to source 5 Infidels. So, anyone got any spare? :D

I could swap out 2 Murders for 2 Carnages and simply drop an Iconoclast. Not sure I could get anything for 5pts but I'll re-check the fleet list.
