Prot Posted November 14, 2012 Share Posted November 14, 2012 I'm trying not to commit to any one army ideal right now. I'm trying diverse lists, settling on one or two -must have- units per 1500pts. Along the way I'm trying to use Cult troops. Aside from my first game, taking actual Khorne Berzerkers, I've since replaced them with vanilla csm and MoK. To me the Berzerkers seemed like the best 'deal' on Cult infantry. Eventually I removed all marks, all icons, all the 'fun' stuff to make room for more cost effective lists. Since I've cut them from the list I've been trying to make a solid, competitive 1500pts where I use a Cult unit as a troop by taking either an iconic HQ, or a very bland HQ with the corresponding mark to make the Cult unit in question a troop. Every time I do this I cut the cult troop from the list! Basically I've played almost all the popular legions at one point or another over the last 10+ years... except 1K sons. So this time around I thought it would give me new motivation.... Termies with 4++, nasty anti-marine troops with 1K sons. The problem is I find the list with 2-3 units of these cult troops feels too small, and lacking in other areas like Heavy Support. So what has been your experience with the new Cult Troops/Elites? Are you making a competitive go at it with a full cult style troop choice? Do you find you have to mix it up? Or like me do you end up stripping all marks/toys off of your troops to make the list a little stronger? Do you think this is a realistic goal at 1500 points?
