Default Playing as Chaos in DOW

Hey guys can anyone give me any pointers at playing as CSM in DOW because currently I am not very good here is how I start:

1. Get heretic to build temple and speed build until he is almost dead. Build 2 squads of cultists and fully reinforce them then get another heretic.

2. Once the Temple is finished I have my cultists capturing points and I start builing a squad of CSMs with one heretic I build a plasma generator and with the other I build a listening post once the first point is capptured.

3. Once I have the resources i get another CSM squad and continue cappturing points.

4. I get a Lord and fortify the rest of my points and build an armory.

5. Upgrade my CSM squads to have heavy bolters.

6. Wait for the resources and then upgrade my stronghold.

7. Build a Machine pit and another CSM squad with heavy bolters, I also research the additional heavy weapons thing from the armoury.

8. Get a defiler and add the additional heavy bolters to my squads.

9. right about now im being attacked and usually destroyed and I try to get a fortress monestary and if I can i will then get a daemon prince if the game even lasts that long.

10. I hit my head on the desk because I suck so badly (I was playing on standard)

I usually verse Necrons and I have the win conditions on annihilate and the resource rate on high, otherwise everything is on default.

Help me please! Surprisingly I don't like dying

Praise the sun!

I usually play Warcraft II and III but have played DOW a few times, I usually sit back and get a big army, since your getting attacked have you just tried sitting back and building so huge that you can take the computer out? That's usually what I do in these sort of situations.

Records 2011:

Black Templars 10-2-1
Daemon Hunters 0-0-0
Chaos 3-2-0

I usually only play the Imps, so I don't have much of a strategy for Chaos...
Except that I usually like to build a few squads of Khorne Berserkers and a few squads of CSMs with heavy bolters.
I rush the 'zerkers and have the CSMs unload from the back.

What the f*** did you put in my sandwich?

Also, don't forget to reinforce your squads once the fighting begins, if you concentrate your HB fire on a single squad of necrons, while your berserkers keep them busy, you should easily be able to push them back.

As for not rushing things.. that depends on your race.. if I play SoBs, I'm usually outside of the enemy's base capturing points and cutting him off very quickly in the game.
THen once my faith is up a little, go in and finish it. I SO love 5 flamer toting girls with a missionary. Especially if I have two squads of that

The easiest way to win at DOW is to use Space Marines.

There in lies your problem.

No, really what DoW expansion are you playing? Dark Crusade? Soulstorm?

Basics you should follow? Get at least 2 heretics right off the bat. The more you have the faster you can build.

After get a squad that can capture points up start on the next one ASAP. While one is building you should be capping another Strat point and building a generator.

Upgrades come with surplus resources not general ones.

Your best units are your base units. DPs and tier 3 or 4 units will cost to much and are capped to 1 or 2 per army. They are ment to be a bonus not the back bone of your army.

Do not wait to be attacked either. If you are playing a single player campaign the computer is not bound by the same limits you are. They can build up to a near infinite number of units, so take out their bases one at a time.

Ive played a fair bit of DOW and Ive always found that your best to get two or three heretics asap and have them building your temple. Then you need military units out capturing points. dont bog yourself down with anything unnecessary too early, just concentrate on defences and building resources
