    Pablo goofed on this one, you cannot shoot the Deredeo twice. PAAAABBLOOO!!!!

      Deredeo does have the Helbrute keyword per the FW Chaos Index FAQ; did they clarify Fire Frenzy to only work on the actual Helbrute datasheet? (Knew there was some uncertainty but can’t recall if they’ve said anything.)

    Pablo I know youre trying to stay fluffy with sons of horus but you need to give chaos marks to your units for max efficiency especially against a player like Reece. Just like AL, use the marks! Also, not hVeing a battalion/ 3 detachments for that +3 instead of +2 can really be a game changer. Endless cacophony on stationary terminators wouldve done work because they actually can shoot 2x.

    Mark of khorne wouldve let them fight 2x in combat with those lightning claws. Also keep in mind you could take a mob of csm for 260 points to screen with and stay fluffy. Thats 40 shots with endless cacophony. Or a sorceror with mark of nurgle and throw miasma of pestilence and prescience on them and thats 20 at -1 to hit in combat and +1 to hit on everything. A full squad of terminators is just a big target you should split them up.

    Always glad to help! A simple paint change to show the marks are you could do a simple glowing eye effects so for slaanesh keep the paint scheme paint the eye white then pink and shade red. Nurgle paint the eyes bright green for a glow. For khorne simply keep the eyes red. That way you keep that awesome paint job. Also, Pablo keep in mind that fire frenzy is for specifically hellbrutes and cost 1 cp so make sure your vehicles have the hellbrute keyword.
