I have started building myself some Plague Marines to use in my Alpha Legion Chaos Army. They are a fairly solid support chose made even better if you equip your Chaos Lord with the Mark of Nurgle making them a troop / Scoring unit. A unit of Plague Marines on an objective isn’t easily removed.
The warp-spawned gauntlet of damnation was thrown down on the gaming table last weekend when I was challenged to a 1500 point game of 40k (“You got one week to prepare buddy!”). Without a sense ofhesitation (and perhaps the kicking in of the Champion of Chaos rule) I accepted the challenge. My Chaos Space Marines vs Chaos Daemons, The new edition codex. It also turned out to be the local gaming club first clash of 6th edition codex armies, in turn making this game just a little bit more exciting.
