Since the release of the Crimson Slaughter book, and the formations within, a thing has been brought to my attention. A thing that screams oversight and future regulation (AKA Nerfing).
This thing involves this dude...
|Typhus...in case you didn't know.|
...and this guy...
|PLUS all the guys in the background.|
Here is where the double team comes in. The new Crimson Slaughter book has a formation, that I talked about last post, called the Cult of Slaughter. This consists of a Dark Apostle and 2-8 units of Chaos Cultists which has a rule that returns D6 fallen cultists to EACH unit at the start of the movement phase.
That's right, Typhus's zombies now get back up.
A couple of posts ago I talked about some of the stronger lists that have come out of the Chaos Codex and Typhus's Zombie Horde was one of them. This is a pretty big deal for that list, mainly because they can take fewer units of zombies and spend those points elsewhere. It may only be saving them 100-200 points, but that's a Vindicator, or a bare bones Nurgle Daemon Prince with wings which could make a huge difference in the outcome.
Until next time, Keep them dice rollin.
