Killzone Team: Brotherhood of Blood
I've started in on a Chaos Khorne themed Imperial Guard Killzone team. I haven't really delved into the Brass, Blood and Skulls side of Chaos so I thought I begin by converting and painting my Leader. I've chosen an Ogryn Bone 'Ead as my leader even though he only has a leadership of 8. This isn't a requirement however as the rules say "preferably with the highest leadership." I wanted something beastly leading my squads. Something huge and massive and deadly. Since there are no Monstrous Creatures in Killzone the closest thing would be something with 3 wounds (Ogryn).
Giving it Resilient gives it a T of 6 but giving it Blademaster would give it 5 rending attacks base. I'm not sure which way I want to go: Tough or Strong. That aside I will be giving him frags so terrain isn't a huge problem and his ripper gun will be represented by a chain that splits into 3 parts each ending with a skull (kind of like the old Eldar Dark Reapwer Exarch wargear). What are your thoughts? Should I go with Toughness of 6 or 5 Strength 5 rending attacks standard?
