Codex: Lost and the Damned - Example army list



 
I wanted to give folks a sample army list using Codex: LatD to show a little bit of how it works, so I threw one together. For some of the things I'll also give a little bit of exposition.

List after the jump:








Codex: Lost and the Damned Army List (2000pts) - "Blood Brothers"


Legions of the Eye (This is the army's "Trajectory" - are they bubbling up from within the Imperium or attacking it from outside?  In this case, they're coming from outside, and will have access to things like Defilers.  If they were "The Enemy Within" instead they'd have more access to Imperial-pattern vehicles.)


HQ
Cult Leader
Rosarius, power weapon, Mark of Khorne
(60pts)
(The HQ does a lot to shape the rest of the army.  Cult Leaders have more access to daemons, but less to Chaos Marines.  By taking the Mark of Khorne the army is now aligned with Khorne, and won't have units from other gods.  You can also instead stay unmarked and take a variety of icons and units if desired.  Cult leaders also have access to orders similar to those from Codex: IG but unique to LatD that can boost the performance of their mortal followers - but they can't order marines or daemons around!)

(HQ)
Priest with Eviscerator
(60pts)
(HQ)
Priest with Eviscerator
(60pts)
 (Pulled from Codex: IG, will be attached to units to give them more punch, feel they fit well with Khorne.)
 
Troops
29xRabble
Laspistol/ccw
2xflamers
Icon of Khorne
Mammoth transport  Plasma Drill  Dozer blade
(271pts)
(Rabble are the regular cultists here, cannon fodder for the gods.  A Priest will ride with them in their massive transport.  The Plasma Drill is a mining tool converted to a weapon, able to do lots of damage but at a very limited range.)

Troops
Veteran Squad
3xmeltaguns
Icon of Khorne
Chimera ML/HF
(175pts) 
(The old IG standby, boosted with an icon.)

Troops (allied)
8xBerzerkers Champion PF Rhino
(243pts)
(Allied over from Codex: CSM.  Since the Leader took Mark of Khorne, other types of cult marines were not available.)
 
Troops (allied)
8xBloodletters of Khorne
(128pts)

Troops (allied)
8xBloodletters of Khorne
(128pts)
(Allied over from Codex: Chaos Daemons.  In LatD armies daemons are summoned in via icons or through sacrifice instead of the regular Deep Strike that Daemon armies use.)
 
Elite (allied)
5xBloodcrushers
(200pts)
(More from the Daemons book.  As with the Berzerkers, since the army leader has the Mark of Khorne that restricts Daemons to Khornate ones.)
 
Elite
Templars
10xTemplars Icon of Khorne Demo charge 2xflamers
Desecrator transport
(345pts)
(Cult Leader and the other Priest will join this unit.  Templars are the temple guards of chaos shrines, and are more heavily armed, armored, and trained than regular cultists, being sort of chaos storm troopers.  The Desecrator is basically a Defiler that has been built as a troop transport instead of an artillery piece.)
 
Hvy
Defiler  extra CC arms
(150pts)

Fast
Stalk Tank w/TL Reaper Autocannon
(75)
(Light walker, familiar to readers of the Guant's Ghost series of books.  Variety of weapon options available, and can Scout.)
 
Fast
2xGremlin attack vehicle w/autocannon
(70pts)
(Light vehicles converted to be weapons platforms, similar to Ork Warbuggies)
 
Fast
Gremlin attack vehicle w/autocannon
(35pts)
