AoS 2 - Blades of Khorne Discussion

Recommended Posts

So, I sold my huge Khorne collection a while back, due to losing every single game with them (like... 6 years of losses every week) and getting sick of painting red. But, against my better judgment, I’m considering starting up another small force of these duders.

How do the blood and skull loving bros do these days? Can you play them without taking 3x Bloodthirsters? Or is that a must? I like Mortal style armies with chaos.

I absolutely feel your experience there. I played the army from the beginning of AoS and even then is was not easy to win. But since GW decided to control the meta via rules and therefore adjusts the pricing ( what is better in the rules will cost more ), I skipped totally on playing and sold the stuff.

Well, these days you can simply run Archaon with some support and have a nice time.

 

Would there be an example for a list? I am coming back after a long time and have no idea of that possibility.

I´m not that deep into the rules, but the basics seem to be:

  • Bloodsecrator for +1 to attack and kind of magic defense
  • Bloodstoker for increasing the charge distance as well as giving rerolls to wound
  • Slaughterpriest for +1 to hit as well as +1 to save
  • there is a command ability of one of the Bloodthirsters that gives you 6" pile in if an opponent is within 6"

Most often seen with Gorecleaver (artifact weapon)

It´s only useful for its double pile in and fight ability. Maybe on the Knights. But on the other hand, you almost get another 5 Knights for this dude.

I guess you should have a look at the Slaughterpriests. They are the best tools in your toolbox.

I´d made them 15 and 5 if you really want to run that many Warriors. 15 will get their "reroll saves" longer, 5 is enough to stay near your back objective.

I´d drop these. IMO they are nothing but a gamble. Though you´ll need some to summon.

 

Take everything with a grain of salt. ;)

I'll add that taking him in Reapers of Vengeance to give him the ability to attack twice is pretty great. I also recommend the chaos warshrine as the prayers can be pretty massive for Archaon and it can reroll off the skull altar for more consistency. Including a blob of 40 marauders works pretty well too since they're excellent targets for his command ability and they can benefit from any support you take for Archaon. I usually run something like this:


Allegiance: Khorne
- Slaughterhost: Reapers of Vengeance
Archaon the Everchosen (800)
Bloodsecrator (120)
- Artefact: Skullshard Mantle
Slaughterpriest (100)
- General
- Command Trait: Mage Eater
- Blood Blessing: Killing Frenzy
Bloodstoker (80)
- Artefact: Talisman of Burning Blood


10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes
10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes
10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes
40 x Chaos Marauders (320)
- Axes & Shields


Chaos Warshrine (170)
- Blood Blessing: Bronzed Flesh


Dark Feast (110)
Hexgorger Skulls (40)

Total: 1950 / 2000
Extra Command Points: 1
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 118

Khorne Archoan is probably our best build right now. Morten Winkle has been having great success with Khorne Archaon on TTS, placing 4th and 8th in two big tournaments with this list:

Spoiler

Allegiance: Khorne
- Slaughterhost: Reapers of Vengeance

Leaders
Archaon the Everchosen (800)
Bloodthirster of Unfettered Fury (270)
- General
- Command Trait: Mage Eater  
- Artefact: The Crimson Crown  
Bloodstoker (80)
- Artefact: Skullshard Mantle  
Slaughterpriest (100)
- Blood Blessing: Blood Sacrifice

Battleline
10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes
10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes
10 x Bloodreavers (70)
- Meatripper Axes

Behemoths
Chaos Warshrine (170)
- Blood Blessing: Bronzed Flesh
Chaos Warshrine (170)
- Blood Blessing: Killing Frenzy

Battalions
Dark Feast (110)

Endless Spells / Terrain / CPs
Hexgorger Skulls (40)
Bleeding Icon (40)

It looks really fun to play and can obviously be very successful. I would say that the Unfettered Fury thirster is essential. It effectivly gives Archaos retreat and charge, meaning that he can't be tied up. He didn't have easy matchups either (Seraphon Fangs, Lumineth Syar).
