View Full Version : Dealing with those Khorne armys.
8th February 2011, 00:27
Recently did a game with orks vs blood letters, a soul grind, and I believe the skull taker.
I used my normal mob list, and man I got raped. Theres not much of a better word for it than that, but I recently have switched gear to Dark Eldar- What advice would you all have for defeating those khorne daemons? Ive pretty much killed all other gods, but khorne is a pain. I tend to go with three units of 9 wyches, one raider each and a decent webway force. Overall they have high WS, and can literally take on a mob. What are the issues khorne armys have with other close combat armys?

Run away! Shooting power is your main advantage. Play keep away and don't commit to an assault until you're sure you'll win.
Generally, high I should be a PITA for a Khorne player because most of his saves blow.

Just don't assault them. Khorne are probably one of the easiest to trounce as you just wait for them to appear and then shoot the shit out of them. Job done.

I am kind of surprised with this result as well, Bloodletters are very expensive for 2 attack models and typically do not excel in a horde situation such as orks.

Well my ork's didnt make it. With my dark eldar, I figured that my WS and dodge would be a massive advantage against those daemons. I can already hold up terminators, its just a unit of 10+ with power weapons are very good at killing.

shooting. use it. The one time i fought with my daemons i got shot the crap out of. then when there were only 4-7 models in a unit they were assaulted which ended up pretty much finishing them off.
oh and bring anti tank for that soul grinder.

Ravager's take care of the soul grinder, along with my basic transport the raider. S8, AP2, Lance. Dead. I think next time I fight a khorne army I will use my Kabalite list, even though I rarely use them.
I've been able to deal with all other daemons in close combat but khorne. I could barley hold in my laughing when I slaughtered a nurgle army, and the guy ended it the moment I left my objective to charge his greater daemon of nurgle, and believe me I would have killed that. He also declared that he won, because he had one objective and I had none- On the 2nd to last turn.. One guy next to me told me he was a sore loser, and people normally avoided him.
