My Chaos Project Log - ride the lightning!
On the other hand he causes instant death and wounds easily with many attacks. Only needs a scratch. His augmented warriors are better with the changes to fearless, and few things deny his feel no pain anymore.
Project Tomb World: Here
Considering, he's better able to defend himself than before. He can't be picked out in close combat unless in a challenge, where he can hold his own against most things. And precision shots make his gun pretty nice.
The more I look at him the better he looks. His relatively poor initiative is basically the only downside.
I actually think the inability to go to ground is a pretty big disadvantadge.
When you run expensive units of Plague Marines attracting attention from anti-tank and plasma weapons from all over the place, going to ground is a nice option to have.
Not as bad as SnP though, an inability to overwatch is a PITA

Danger! May contain Oingo Boingo
That's the only nerf I found for them in 6th ed - no Overwatch
how would you best equip a Chaos Lord? i've armed mine with a Daemon weapon, Personal icon and meltabombs at 140pts while my Dark Apostle Lord has Mark of Tzeentch, Daemon weapon, Personal Icon at 150pts (MOT and personal icon to represent the accursed crozious abilities).
i was thinking of upgrading him with termi armour and running him with 5 terminators with power weapons and combi-weapons with chaos glory for the extra icon (i run lesser and greater daemons in 1500pts lower then swap with chaos daemons detachment for 2000pts + games).
EDIT: I also thought of going the whole way with the Dark Apostle and give him a Power Maul as that is what a Crozious is now classed as. possibly Power maul, MoT, Personal Icon at 125pts or take the Termi upgrade and a personal icon for the same price.

Step forth and be recognized.
No mercy. No pity. No hope.
Well, it depends if people allow the Invul save to mitigate the damn weapon biting you in the butt. I lurve the Tzeetch version
To disagree with the above, it's a power weapon. Its AP is based on what you model it as.
El machinae- its an unusual power weapon how ever you model it so it is AP3 with special rules from the codex
Maulerfiends are on the loose, Maulerfiends are go;
Mauler, Mauler, Mauler, Maulerfiends!
