For those of you following my blog, and the development of my Chaos army know that, generally speaking, I have kept it focused on Slannesh. Over the last several months of the Fall, I played a pile of games with my Warriors of Chaos, and have started to play with different marks for units. This is leading to a change…
I usually don’t like to parrot internet trends and builds, but I have to admit that I think I have been handicapping myself by worrying about this too much. While I don’t think that I am going to jump up and whip up a 2 Hellcannon, Lvl 4 on a Disc of Tzeentch, I do think that I want to make my army slightly less mark specific.
This is going to require a modification of my paint scheme from purple/pink to something less specific. I have an idea that will make my units feel a bit more open. Luckily, I haven’t painted very much of my army so this isn’t a huge step backwards.
I am particularly excited to try out some Tzeetch, and Khorne builds – both powers that I had avoided in the past. My concern is that unless I go down the GW set schemes for the Chaos powers, I may confuse opponents. One option is to expand on the way I am creating the banners for the units. I’ve designed them to have changeable banners, so that I can create different banner models to represent interesting magic banners, or standards that show, clearly the alignment of the unit. I think it will work out.
