Default How would you beat this list?

So I don't want a double lash list and I like the model for Fabious Bile. I understand the competiveness of the feedback and appreciate it. I am looking for the holes (of which, I'm sure I have plenty) in this list.


Fabious Bile

Plague Marines x 7
Rhino,2 x Meltaguns, Champion with PW

Plague Marines x 7
Rhino w extra TL Bolter, 2 x Plasmaguns, Champion with PW

CSM x 10
Rhino, Enhanced warriors, 2 x Flamers, Champion with PF

CSM x 10
Rhino, Enhanced warriors, 2 x Flamers, Champion with PF

Obliterators x2

id change the plasma guns to meltas since you lack a lot of effective anti-tank.

but generally your main weakness is a lack of numbers. (hint tell us how many points your running)

any real concentrated sustained assault will be your bane. - also TH/SS termies.

The two CSM squads are obviously close combat targeted, would you not be better off with berserkers? (can you still use fabius to upgrade berserkers, can't remember the rules on it...)

At the very least I'd want to give them MoK to go with their extra str.

Who keeps Oblits in reserve?

My ideas for improving the list:


Fabious Bile

Plague Marines x 7
Rhino w Havoc Launcher, 2 x Plasmaguns

Plague Marines x 7
Rhino w Havoc Launcher, 2 x Plasmaguns

CSM x 10
Rhino w Extra Armor, Enhanced warriors, 2 x Melta, Champion with PF

CSM x 10
Rhino w Combi-Flamer, Enhanced warriors, 2 x Flamers, Champion with PW

Obliterators x2

Sorry, it's a 1500 point total. At this point total I thought four troop choices was a bit more than I've seen on other lists. I normally play IG and have just started with CSM. I'll probably move the plasma to melta. If I take that extra TL bolter off (just had a couple points left over) then I'll have 15 more points to distribute. I could swap two flamers for yet more melta, but unsure on how wise that is considering I'd planned on using those two for the brunt of clearing any objectives (or clearing up after a popped transport).

I've only purchased the following models yet:

Bile
Plague Marines x 14
Rhino x 1
Obliterator x 1

My friends and I have a 500 point list now escalating up to 1,500. So I'm running right now:

Bile
Plague Marines x5
Rhino

Plague Marines x5

Obliterator

And I've won both matches I've had so far (vs Nids then Dark Angels) and we all enjoyed it. Just trying to tap your collective experience on how you would take this on tactics wise.

Thank you!

What would you use to counter TH/SS Terminators? With guard it'd be my 31 guard blob with commissar and three sergeants wielding PWs.

not to say poeple are as much dicks as i am but u need more of somthing in that army either shoting or melee its not enough in 1.5k i have feilded 180 ork boyz with nob and pk that would table this list in 2 to 3 turns but if your stuck of regular csm mabye give them somhin else other than flamers give some meltas at least because ur 4 oblits are only 4 oblits lol in 1.5k i think u should run two squads of 3 and u can use termies to proxy them
mabye remove 1 squad of plauge marines for a 10 csm 2x melta and 2 more oblits plus ur 4 aleady?

grey knights are the biggest hypocrits

My deathwing army would ruin this list. Then again it would ruin lots of stuff. 22 terminators and 1 landraider. I think BA and wolves will be tough for you too. Warp time will give the DP a chance against thss terms. Gun line and swarm armies will go through you like a hot knife through butter.
