Lost and damned

These are the first of the new cultists for my world eaters army.  I am really impressed with the quality of these 2piece models.  Very little flash work and the glued an fit together pretty easily.
The detail is some of the best I've seen yet.

So game 2 with khorne......  not as bad. I got one guy left by the end of the game.  Couple of things I've learned.
1. I like the all berserker army on foot.
2. I DON'T like the fist of the gods formation with what I'm fielding.  Too much strategery I think.
3. There are so many special cookies in chaos that I'm lost with what I want to do during the battles.

This game is against the sons of Horus 30k army.  Things started out looking great, I got the khorne special moves off, and it was all going well.  Then I hesitated again during turn 3 and he shot me to pieces, basically.

Need to get a more basic army look to my guys and set up a bit different.  The berserker squads didn't have and icon of wrath, or power weapons at all.  Cheaper for sure, and probably really effective against everything except other space marines. My cc wasn't overpowering, which is what it needs to be. I got clogged up and my moving hesitated.  No good.

I also have to read a bit closer to the rules.  Kharn, it turns out, has a 5+inv save, and I missed it for 2 games now, because of skimming.

Oh well, it'll get better.

Well I just got my birthday present.  In a 1600 apiece game vs ultrasmurfs eldar, I got tabled in 3 turns.  Not only did I play the army wrong, but he rolled like a god on top of that.  I basically took a butcher hoard, a maelstrom of gore, backed up by the fists of the gods. ( for those not in the know, that's 4 8man berserker squads, led by kharn, with a formation of 2 vindicator and a predator.

Khorne rediscovered

The madness has begun these are the first of the fresh new paint jobs all of the old school world eaters are going to be getting.
