Learning Curve: 40K First Game

So I’m writing an army list for a game that I used to play every week.  I have no idea if what I’m scribbling on my pad is any good.  I have no idea if what I own is even any good…
100_4583Many of you will have seen that I have recently decided to get back into 40K properly.  I have taken the decision to play as Dark Angels based upon a goodness to cost ratio that fits my bill nicely since the Dark Vengeance kits are quite cheap to pick up on eBay.  But I already own an entire Talon of Night Lords (it’s kind of a Company) and a lot of them are painted so they are my chosen force for Friday nights 1500 point game.

My force will be;

Dark Apostle w/plasma pistol, votlw………………………………………120

10 x Chaos Space Marines w/c-c weapons, 2x Meltaguns, Power Fist, Icon of Vengeance, votlw……………………………………………………………………………..240
10 x Chaos Space Marines w/c-c weapons, 2x Meltaguns, Power Fist, Icon of Vengeance, votlw, Rhino…………………………………………………………………….275
10 x Chaos Space Marines w/c-c weapons, 2x Plasma guns, Power Sword, Icon of Vengeance, votlw………………………………………………………………240
10 x Chaos Cultists w/Shotgun, Autoguns, Heavy Stubber…………….65

5 x Chosen w/Power Sword, Power Fist, Icon of Vengeance, votlw…..165
5 x Chaos Terminators w/1x Power Sword, 2 x Chain Fists, 2 x Power Fists, votlw, Heavy Flamer…………………………………………………………………………….158

Land raider……………………………………………………………………….230


So basically nothing subtle about it.  Lots of fearless troops with a couple of assault units and a back-field objective holder/pot-shot taker.  We’ve agreed no flyers since I don’t own anything that can really deal with them so I don’t have to worry about that but armour may be an issue.  It’s probably awful and I’ll no doubt get my buns kicked but that’s sort of the point.  I always find that I learn a lot more from an ass-kicking than an easy victory!

Stay tuned and find out how I get on next week! -Mark
