Hi everyone. Today I want to speak about Forsaken, this shocktroopers of Chaos.
Reason why I want to discuss them is their unclear and somewhat redundant role in roster. Stat wise they are really solid but for me they are somewhat close silverhelms - good on paper but outshined by other options in roster. Here some points :
* mobility. They are pretty fast but Chaos is not Dwarfs there is number of faster and more effective units - chariots , cav and etc.
* Damage against " soft " targets - again, you have Chaos Warriors that pack shield + armor + better HP pool and model count - just your recipe for choppy frontline. Mobility ? See above.
* Staying power . Armor ? Not bad. Other stuff like MD or HP ? Meh
All in all, what do you think and what you can propose/criticize in this case ?
