Points values are off here. The unit's 215 points if you're swapping bolters for CCWs (and you can only swap for 7 that way, since the flamers are replacing bolters already, so you'd still need to buy 2 CCWs to give the whole unit them--so possibly 219 points), or 233 if you've outright bought the CCWs. If you go with the former option and drop the meltabombs, well, you had few points to spare to reach 1000 points, so it'll be alright.

Hmm, what would I do? I'd drop the 15 man cultist squad, buff the 8 man CSM squad to 10, buy another melta for that squad, and buy the BBoS for the Lord.

I'd like to get the MoN on that Oblit (thematically and rules-wise), but I don't see where that handful of points could come from... unless you buy the Lord a power fist instead of the BBoS to give him fisticlaws (two specialist weapons gives him the bonus attack, and he can choose whether to strike with the fist or the claw depending on his foe), as well as having juuust barely enough points left over for MoN on the Oblit (if you count the lone spare point left over to reach the 1000 point cap after correcting the CSM squad's cost).

Still, it's a damn solid list as is. Make those few tweaks and it'll just be that vital fraction better, in my eyes.

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!
