4 way, ohhhhhh so kinky!


Tonight I am going to play my first 4 way versus game. SOmeone at the club proposed it last week so this week I am taking 1000 pts of chaos to the battlefield.
1 lash sorcerer, what else would I take!
3 termies with combi meltas
2- 7man plague marines with 2 meltas, rhino wiht dozer blades and a combi melta
3 man biker squad with 2 meltas
3- 1 man oblit squads

cheesey? What else is there! I do love me some drunken moon out of northern California. Great cheese, really its awesome! Im eating it right now!!!
*** I walked away the winner last night. The organizer had a few special rules we played with. The biggest was being able to shoot into close combat if none of your troops were in the melee. Second and what gave me the win was, any unit could score except if the game was a draw, in that case, who ever had the most troops would claim the objective! That was me and I won! ***

At least you can identify the Cheese. Not everyone can. I hope it's not a kill point mission though, else your screwed. 10 KPs in 1000pts, wow.

seriously. A well built list with lots of kill points manhandles other list with very few killpoints. This is something a lot of players have a hard time understanding. My 2k list has 27 killpoints and it has no problem in kp missions. Each unit can only accomplish so much over the course of 5-7 turns. The more kp's(units) you have, the high number of actions you can do. This allows for focus fire and combo charges against forces that have a low number of kp's.

Having a low number of kp also means your dumping a large number of points into a lower number of units. Which means that your list is unbalanced. And we all know what happens when an unbalanced list goes up against a well built, balanced list right? Oh yeah, it loses.

Please please try to get out of that mindset that a high number of kill points is bad.

Tyler, you also have to realize that a good player with a balanced list can see an army that is high kill points and abuse this. I love it when playing kill point missions and my opponent has lots of transports and either small squads or single model units (even tough ones like Oblits). It means I can ignore the rest of his army for the most part, maybe throwing one or two squads his way as a distraction and then proceed to pick off all the low count units and transports.

Personally, I am completely against ever taking single model units (except tanks and transports obviously) and small easy to kill squads.
