Badab War Part 2. Planning for game 1.

Badab War part 2 is in 25th of May. So I will prepare from now. Maybe I will make it, maybe i will not paint the night before.

As a Back up plan I got my Fire Hawks. But I want to take my Nightlords to the fight.
I want to make a Chaos warband around Talos (main hero of the nightlord novels) the Badab war part 2 wekend has the following twist, make a hq ( there is a list. for example from chaos marines, it is a chaos lord, for marines a captain, for orks a warboss and etc.) tool him up to 150 points the points are free to spend. the hero counts as an hq. He is added for free in every game but you cant change him. Every Game has as a reward 2 special abilities, if you win the game you can choose one and add it to your hero for the rest of the games.

So the first game is
Game 1 – Passage Of the Unhallowed Heart
Long before the Badab Sector became synonymous
with mass betrayal of Space Marine against brother
Space Marine not seen since the events of the Heresy
thousands of years before, the Astral Claws, then led
by Chapter Master Rovik Blake met any threat thrown
originating from the Maelstrom. But then the long
range augurs detected a space hulk emerging from
the edge of the Maelstrom known as the Unhallowed
Heart. As it ploughed through space madness erupted
all around as within the craft were daemons spreading
palpable waves of emotion and insanity, infecting all
those nearby.
This mission represents the introduction of a new hero
who enters the fray ready to defeat his enemies and
protect what he believes is vital. As the ship moves from
system to system parts of it are raining down on the
surrounding planets. Each side intends to claim these
fallen parts, and either place them in quarantine for
close examination by the Inquisition or harvest them in
order to further their own power in the coming storm.

Points 500pts
Mission type Seize Ground with only 3 Objectives
Deployment Spearhead

Special Rules: The Maddening Warp is upon us!
At the start of each Game Turn each Objective moves
D6” in a random direction decided by the Scatter Dice.
This represents the daemon possessed hull of the
Unhallowed Heart wanting to diffuse into reality and
escape the clutches of its captors. (Note – this happens
whether an objective is claimed or not!)
Hero Upgrades
• Fearless
• Re–roll Morale and Pinning checks

Not ground breaking upgrades If I win i will be picking the Rerroll morall and pinning checks.

My list will be this:

Free HQ

Chaos Lord  90
Mark of Slannesh 5
Demon Weapon 40
Twin linked bolter 5


8 chaos space marines 120
melta  10

Rhino 35
 combi melta 10

5 plague marines  115

7 chaos raptors 140
1 champion 15
lightning claws 25
melta gun  10
melta gun 10

total 490

The plague marines sit on one objective while the rhino and raptors rush towards another objective Imight change the raptors for chosen that  can infiltrate or outflank. Any thoughts? any suggestions for another list? Do you think I need more troops?


  1. I feel you need another troop choice. With only two troops at the moment and 3 Objectives. The best result you can hope for is holding two, whilst contesting the third that the opponent is camped on. Which won't be easy as the objectives move. Not up to date with the chaos codex but I feel another troop choice might give you some flexibility (but I could be wrong lol).

  2. Hey, good to see a fellow Chaos player attending the Badab War tournament this coming weekend. Have you developed your lists for this and the other games yet? I'd love to hear what you are taking as this is my first tournament :O)
