Fraternis Salutem

So, my next big mark is my CSM force for my LGS next big tournament: Fraternis Salutem.  This is a story driven, heavy fluff, tournament.  SO… I am bringing 1500 points of my Lorgar’s Knights (chapter of the Word Bearers): The Dark Apostle and his personal Host in the form of a conversion expeditionary force.  Right now, but I am sure it will be tweaked over the next 6 months, it sits at

Dark Apostle w/ VOTLW

Contemptor Dread w/ 2 Butcher Cannons

5 CSM w/ Flamer, Combi-Flamer, VOTLW
5 CSM w/ Flamer, Combi-Flamer, VOTLW
10 CSM w/ 2 Plasma Guns, Power Weapon, VOTLW
8 Chosen w/ 3 meltas, 2 flamers, Power Weapon, VOTLW, Melta Bomb

Rhino x 2 w/ Havoc Launchers (Small Squads)
Rhino x 2 (Bigger Squads)

Vindicator w/ Siege Shield, Daemonic Possession
Predator w/ Autocannon Turret, Lascannon sponsons, Hellfire Gargoyles

It’s a Black Legion list because this really is more akin to the marines that are part of the original traitor Legions, and the fluff behind my chapter is that it is one of the many chapters of the original Wordbearers.  They continue to even carry the original standard of the burning tome as they feel that the words of Lorgar have been lost (ie- They are purists).

So THIS is how it looks starting out-


Obviously I have a goo bit of work.  Most of the infantry is between 1/2 and 90% complete.  Many only need bases.  I really am looking forward to running a mechanized force where only AVs start on the table.

Well, thanks for reading,

  1. Looks like a doable list from a hobby perspective, IE: you’re not starting an army from scratch with 6 months to do it. If you nail down a list early like this too it will leave you time to do some cool fluff for it too. Oh, it’s Fratris Salutem, not Fraternis 🙂

    • Yeah, I waited WAAY to long for the standoff to pin down a hard list. I am going to run this list and I will tweak tactics to match rather than tweaking entire units to fit my play style.

      However, the vehicles will be a challenge to get a nice even distribution of paint coating.
