From the Tables

The Lamenters are overwhelmed by a savage 13th Company force.

This is a shot from 'Ard Boyz a couple weeks back. The army I played against was all foot with Logan, I couldn't have hoped to kill even a fraction of them. But when Mephiston, Sanguinor, and a Furioso whiffed their turn 2 assault, I didn't have a chance...

So, how should I use this model...?

I'm sure by now most people have seen this model. It is a little newer for me, as I only recently got online access since my move. But basically, it screams at me, and I must have it. But there is no way I'm starting Ogres. Fortunately the army I am working on is Chaos themed, and everything fits in a Chaos force, most of all big, nasty beasties. But I have a problem.

My plan for the army was based off Codex: Space Wolves (no Long Fangs for my Khorne guys, I just wanted to field a dozen or so Juggernaut riders), and beyond the Thunderwolves, there just isn't a big nasty monster in the army list. So what should I do? How many Juggernauts could I fit in a normal CSM army? Then he could just be a Summoned Greater Daemon, easy. But I don't want to lose all the Juggers. Should I bite the bullet and just field a CSM army? Or is there something this model could be in a SW list that I am just missing? I should have prefaced the question by saying I have never liked the concept of fielding organics with vehicle rules, but this guy could be an exception.

What say the few readers I may actually have left?
