I play World Eaters as my main army and had been seeing good results with them in my local scene, but whenever I lose it's always because of hails of anti-infantry fire from vehicles destroying my berzerkers, so I made this list to sort that by including a big Daemon Engine train and using the Word Bearer strat to auto-cast a power that fails to guarantee I can slingshot the Butchers in as soon as they drop. I hope that by keeping the Butchers in combat and bouncing them around from skirmish to skirmish I can minimize the amount of incoming fire to them.
Gonna be trying it out when lockdown ends but tell me what you think! Considering finding a way to make the Disco Lord the Warlord for Daemonsmith but we'll see - I want the focus to be on the World Eaters for now.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I’ve got a new contender. Definitely my #2 game in terms of best games I’ve ever played.
Ok so, I was looking a few months ago for a story based game, but not 100% follow the story to get to the end, I wanted an open world to explore. I’ve always been big on campaign based games, God of War, TLou, Witcher etc. I play the campaigns on COD, for a little insight into my gaming experiences, never really been an online player except for 2k. I noticed this was on sale for around $23 on the PlayStation store so I picked it up, thinking it may just hold me over for a few weeks and just play for a bit of fun and get into the story. Well. I have been absolutely mind blown by what I’ve experienced so far. I’m at the mission where Copes camp gets attacked by the militia, not sure what % of the main story that is but hey, I’ve been at it for a while so I think it’d be around the 70-75% area of progression (for the main story only). I haven’t been this hooked on a game since GoW, everything about it is absolutely breathtaking. The scenery, the animations, the weapon and bike physics, it actually feels like you’re riding the motorbike and firing the guns. I’ve been taking my time, earning skill points, finding Nero injectors, exploring as much stuff as I can and picking up all the goodies the world has to offer so that I always have things if I need to craft etc.
For the most part I avoided Hordes and going after them as much as I could, I wanted to be fully prepared and at my combative best when tackling one, and the story mission where you test out weavers napalm was a huge shock to the system, took me about 5 go’s but I killed the bastards. Now I’m going around looking for them in the north of the map, planning and strategising how to take down a Horde truly is one of the best experiences you can have in a video game IMO. I can not find a single fault with this game, everything is perfect and I know I’m going to playing it long into the future, this sub is also so wonderful, everyone is welcoming and kind to new players asking for help, and everyone loves hearing/seeing others having fun with the game we all love. I wish I’d found this when it first come out, but at the same time I’m glad I’m getting to live this for the first time. It is 10/10.
