"Hmmm, bringing a Lord of War wouldn't unbalance it would it? It is a Forge World unit so is probably underpowered right?" said my brain.
So yes, I fielded a 650pt Lord of war in a 1250pt game last night, and yes, it murdered an army. I have wanted to use my Morbidex Twiceborn figure for some time so had him sub for Scabeiathrax the Bloated (Say that 3 times fast) as the figures are the same height and on the same base.
Despite the best attempts of a Culexus Assassin and Chapter Master Shrike, it was all over once Morbidex the Bloated (See what I did there?) hit the Marine battle line!
All set up - please note Morbidex in the background
Charge of the Plaguebearers! This lot actually got torn to shreds by Aggressor fire.
The moment of truth as Morbidex starts his rampage. But look...fully painted terrain and miniatures!
