We are well into the new edition now, but play time has been cut short but Papa Nurgle and the devastation unleashed by that. So with all that going on I fell back on playing with list ideas and seeing how much fun I could get out of 9th Edition Chaos Knights. Of course I will be going with my beloved House Malinax (using House Vextrix for rules).
My Warlord will by my as of yet unnamed Knight Magarea, mainly as I have always loved the look of them. Plus a giant lighting cannon! Favour of the Dark Mechanicum means it gains a wound back a turn, plus the Blasphemous Engine allows it to count its wounds as double for brackets.
Although pretty much all the other models in the army are all because of the looks. Rule of cool is not a great way to win battles but it is a personal favorite way to play.
9th Edition Chaos Knights – 2,000 points House Malinax
1995 points – 12 CP – House Vextrix rules
Warlord – Chaos Questoris Knight Magaera: Favour of the Dark Mechanicum, The Blasphemous Engine, Hekaton siege claw
Chaos Cerastus Knight Castigator
Knight Despoiler: Meltagun, thermal cannon, avenger gatling cannon and heavy flamer
Knight Rampager: Angry, angry thoughts
War Dog Moirax: 2x lightning lock
Work in progress shots of my Magaera are going up on Instagram and Twitter as I complete bits. I have used the Chaos Knight kit as my base and I will doing my best to integrate the Forgeworld pieces.
