Chaos Maurders

What do people think to these? I keep thinking they might be underrated and a good option, but by the time you have ungraded them start to get expensive (granted thats the point of WoC)

Thinking for my fimir army having lots of vassal albionians (or albanians as i said earlier) but unsure..

Since I am considering some more competitive events wouldnt mind getting an army that worked!

I can show you how to do some crazy OP stuff with Maurders, and yes - nothing of Forge World involved :-O.

They can be the one of the best pt-for-pt units in the game (except for Lizardmen Skinks), or the worse waste of pts, that pts could buy!

yeah for 245 pts i did have a block of 30ish... I wonder if to give them Festus might be an answer,

I going to put my BSB on a disc tho, as i need to keep him alive!

have you tried out the options kai listed yet? I'm intrigued to see what works best for padding out your list mark, especially with the thought of running in some comp events

Lots of fetus lists with a tooled up bsb for them. Just not very inspiring.

sadly its always the way these things the best builds tend not to be the fluffy fun ones, I wish gw would actually look at the fluff and work out the fun ways to make decent armies

lol - didn't you learn your lesson with taking Festus Mark ;-)

He's so OP, yet so squishy - stay well alone from him UNLESS you have a rock-hard command containing Chaos Lords, Sorcs and Heroes in that same block too ;-)

Need to stop spells, him being forced into a challenge, and direct attacks in combat against him.

Trolls are hard, but it hurts when they get hit by flaming attacks.

From what I read on the rumour websites about Chaos Endtimes chaos is going to be mint
