Today I bring you a brand new army list for Chaos Marines using the Raptor formation...
Hi everybody it's your ever friendly Black Blow Fly swinging through your neighborhood again to to spread some mischief and discontent !!! Today I bring you a brand new army list for Chaos Space Marines (CSM) using the Raptor formation... These flying Devils can assault straight out after deep striking which I think has some application.
I know a lot of people are still unhappy and to each their own but much of this type of feeling stems directly from a sense of false entitlement. CSM have some good things now such as the Cabal which has access to all of the new Space Marine psychic powers and Renegade Knights. Still no Grav or free transports as yet... Me, I'm not holding my breath and I'm more than willing to work with what we've got on the table. If you still want one super uber codex I think you're probably going to be waiting a really long time.
So when I saw the rules for the new Raptor Talon I got all excited about CSM again and decided to build a new army list so I can give a whirl. Is it top tier... Don't really know and don't really care to be honest. The Raptor Talon beckons to Night Lords and that's the theme. Belakor ghosts this warband for whatever reason... Hey that's how the Dark Master likes to roll. If you don't like him he could be swapped out for a jump pack Cabal. There's even some crazy Khorne cultists hiding in a bunker to cheer on all the bad guys too ! If you like to model, convert and paint this could be a really fun project.
