Default united chaos stands[1750)

well, after every game having bad rolls with flamers, deciding on a different approach, what did the flamers do, i asked, and how to replace them.
Haven't tried it out but here it goes

Bloodthirster + might 270 list 1
Bloodthirster + might 270 list 1
540

hey, let me just run up to big things and charge and murder them. yeah murder
5 crushers 200 list 1
5 crushers 200 list 1
5 crushers 200 list 2

6 bearers icon 115 list 1
6 bearers icon 115 list 2

8 horrors changling 141 list 1
8 horrors 136 list 2

6seekers 102 list 2
total 1750


heheheehe, cc coolnes.
horrors of course dp to kill harlies and genestealers and blah blah.
the crushers hide, or try to behind jesus, oh i mean bloodthirsters.
um, then bearers are icons. they hold objectives, while good ole letters kill us some people. if i get list 2, well, seekers arnt bad and have some crushers to hold of the enemy till hvy support comes.

suggestion and virgin sacrafices are wanted but both are hard to come by.

ah, just kidding, but need some re-arranging on lists i know so help would be appreciated

Do you really need 2 blood thirsters? You need more than just that.

while i don't play deamons i have looked a lot at the lists due to me wanting to make my own daemon army... the way your list is set out i find it could work better as

bloodhirster
bloodcrusher
bloodcrusher
plauge bearers
horrors

list 2
bloodthirster
bloodcrusher
plauge bearers
horrors
seekers

wouldn't something set out like this work better? due to be being more ballenced you won't have to worry as much about your deep strking if it goes sour. or am i missing something about daemons?

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

well, i like my bloodthirsters together or not at all, since if i have just 1, thats alot of focused rapid fire, plus 2 is better to hide my crushers behind, as the real meat and potatos of the army isnt in the fast blood thirsters, its in the overwhelmingly sexy crushers that, get 20 attacks on the charge, which will make them better than a thirster, and more wounds, and a decent armour save to not get bogged down in crappy saves from hvy choppas.

You may want to consider adding Blessing of the Blood God to both of these guys.

My eyes about popped out of my head when I saw this, but now that I really think about it Blood Crushers really are awesome enough to take in large numbers. Perhaps consider dropping one in each unit so as to make the unit a bit smaller and easier to Deep Strike and give yourself enough points to make your Plaguebearers units larger.

If these guys are your only Icon holders, you might be in trouble. 6 Plague Bearers aren't all that difficult to deal with and will be even easier come 5th edition since AP2 or less weapons will deny Feel No Pain. Aim for at least 8 Plague Bearers.

Nice, though if at all possible try to squeeze a Bolt of Tzeentch into this unit. You really need the anti-tank firepower.

Quote:
8 horrors 136 list 2
Nice.

Quote:
6seekers 102 list 2
While these guys were the best in 4th, 5th edition is only 4 days away now. Consider some Screamers to chase after tanks.

Best of luck!

i like the list it's very.....bad for the oppoment the things i would change is:
-drop 1 blood thister for the oracle of tzeentch, this guy will allow all your units within 6" to re-roll all saves, and will pretty much make sure that your blood crushers get into combat.
-take 1 unit of blood crushers away and use the points to get more bearers and the oracle(as above)

Daemons
W:9 D:0 L:0

Chaos Marines
W:21 D:2 L:3

If you want peace.....prepare for war!

6" inch is pretty small, and the bearer, isnt as good as taking out tanks as thirsters, ill try it though, as oracle has plenty of abilities
