CSM 1500 Where am i really??
Ive been gaming for a good few months now and after seeking and receiving help/tips/advice/opinions on my initial CSM list i thought id post where im at now with my 1500 force and see what peeps think.
Warlord HQ - 162 Points
Mark of Khorne
Elites - 360 Points
Power swords (x2)
Power axes (x2)
Mark of Khorne
Troops - 175 Points
Fast Attack - 340 Points
Heavy Support - 465 Points
Lascannon (SS) (x2)
This list has provided a few victorys (and gained its fair share of defeats) but overall its done ok.
The Heldrakes are my obvious anti-troop go to guys and now the dice gods no longer hate me ive managed to drop the aegis/comms relay to save valuable points, theyve also managed to take out a few flyers along the way with the vector strike. My favourite model/unit tbh.
Forgefiends have been VERY hit and miss... The amount of reasonable strength dakka they 'can' put out can be lethal, tho sometimes even with the Deamon-forge ive managed to do very little, plus the AV12 has been found out, especially vs melta wielding drop pod lists. Love the model, tho my gameplay needs to improve with this unit.
The Predator ive not had long but this guy has done well every turn... Who doesnt love lascannons right?
CSM i feel like im cheating these units tbh as only being 5 strong there main role has been 'shields' for my heavy support units. Tho the AC has been known to perform quite well in challengers, one took out 3 Marine Sergeants in a row! Still waiting for a decent boon table roll however... Chaos is fickle... haha
Cultists have been recommended a few times, but rightly or wrongly im not a fan of the models and i prefer my marines... all 10 of them!
Helbrute... interesting/infuriating beast... seems to attract an 'immobilized' result every time the AV12 suffers a penetrating hit... tho it was pleasing to witness a Storm Raven feel the brunt of its crazed roll, even having to roll 6s to hit, the Raven got blown out of the sky with the Multi-melta at short distance.
I more often that not deepstrike my Lord & Terminators and this usually work well, the combi-plasmas do the initial damage then with all the attacks i get on the charge with Mark of Khorne / AoBF Daemon weapon bonus hitting at initiative S6 AP2... Plus the power weapons... pretty badass tbh, just wish the Lord had eternal warrior... instant death has been his bane once or twice.
These are my own opinions and experiences and are by no means a total review of the units as im no where near experienced enough for such an undertaking.
If youve made it to the bottom of this post then 'congratulation's and thank you for reading, tho as usual any comments thoughts are greatly received.
