Traitors legion Chaos warband
« on: March 12, 2017, 09:13:21 AM »
Hello, I recently picked up Traitors Legion and don't quite have all the models to field the Chaos Warband mostly the Elite or fast attack choice where it is 1-3 units for chosen, terminators, or possesed and 1-3 Raptors, Warp Talons, or Chaos bikers.

 Which ones should i be considering in those two categories and how should they be used for death guard.

I'd go for terminators and bikers to maximise your resilience. Death Guard are all about shrugging off damage so it pays dividends to invest in playing to the strengths of already tough units.

They are also either fast moving or can deep strike so you can still manoeuvre reasonably well.

I'm missing the bikes to do that so I take a unit of Raptors for my Death Guard, and they have done well. But I would recommend bikes if you can do it.

Thanks, could you also give me a few ways to kit out both Terminators and Bikers?

Are bikes just better than Raptors?

Personally I prefer close combat terminators with pairs of lightning claws but that's because I find it works well.

As or bikes, remember that bikes give +1T so that gives Death Guard T6 bikers which coupled with FNP makes them awesome.

Both Terminators and Bikes have the Relentless special rule so they can charge after firing any sort of weaponry.  So it depends what you want them to do.

If you want them to kill light to medium infantry, then put power mauls or lightning claws and combi-flamers on the terminators.  Flamers on the bike with maybe a power maul on the champion.
If you want them to kill heavy infantry then put power axes or fists and combi-plasmas on the terminators.  Plasma guns and maybe a power axe or sword on the champion.
If you want to go tank or monster hunting then power fists or chainfists and combi-meltas on the termiantors.  Melta guns on the bikes and maybe a power fist on the champion.

If you want the terminators to be a pure-assault force then twin-lightning claws on the regulars but I'd maybe put a single claw and a combi weapon on the champion because they pay premium points for doubling up lightning claws for some unknown reason.

I might go with anti-tank or plasma with em since infantry hasn't been to much of a problem for my chaos spawn bloops. Is it better to stick the terminators in a land raider with possibly typhus or deep strike? I really don't want to walk them up the table but i have done sillier things.

Definitely take them in a land raider. These days it's not worth trying to deep strike them.

If you want to get them and typhus into melee, the land raider is a must.  If you just want to shoot stuff I'd deep strike to negate cover or get at weaker rear armour.

I usually take typhus just to spam a ton of plague zombies and he is kinda just a big point sink. But if i get terminators will maybe throw him in a squad with them if i am not deep striking which will be what i do most of the time.

I've had some success running typhus with nurgle mutilators, their improved toughness and extra wounds make them worth the points of a kitted out assault terminator.

Zombies all around of course...

I'll probably proxy stuff for a while to figure out what works, but thanks for the help!
