Default 1850 tournament list

Hi

Entering a tournament and havent played 40k csm in a while.

Thinking of the following list.

Are there any obvious flaws.
Its an uncomped tournament.

hq

Belakor 350p

Chaos lord on jugger and mark of khorne. 185p
Sigil
Axe of blind fury.
Horns of slaughter

Troops

cultists 50p
cultists 50p
cultist 50p
cultist 50p

fast
5 chaos spawn nurgle 180p
heldrake flamer
heldrake flamer

Heavy support
oblit nurgle 76p
oblit nurgle 76p
oblit nurgle 76p

Allies

Knight errant 370p


My thoughts are spawn + lord and the Knight rushes forward with invis from belakor.
Oblits and heldrake provide support while cultists capture the objektives.
It will be maelstrom missions all the way.

any suggestions for improvement?
It feels a bit cheesy but mostly in our uncomped lists chaos struggles a bit so i doesnt worry me to much.

The big thing that I can see is the Knight. Imperial Knights follow the "Armies of the Imperium" ally rules, which means they could not ally in with your chaos army. Unless, of course, there is a house rule that states otherwise.



Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the space orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Yeaaaah Ultramarines!

As far as I know, he can still ally it in - It is just a "Come the apocalypse" state, where it cannot be deployed within 12'' of his army and any model of his own within 12'' of him have to take a test each round, to see if they aren't too busy looking at each other.

The army looks ok, though you can't have your Chaos Lord as the Axe of Blind Fury is for CSM only, while Horns of Slaughter are for Crimson Slaughter only. A CSM char can not have CSM stuff and vice versa.
Another prob with a lot of people using battlescribe, as it doesn't know this .
Though as a Khorne Lord you already get Furious Charge (or might be Rage, I can never remember), and i think as Cavalry due to the Jugger you get HoW i think. So the only bonus you get from it i think is the one you didn't get from your mark.

If you wanted to cheese it a bit with some allies, you could of course drop your nurgle spawns.
Add in a Renegades and Heretics Command Squad devoted to Tzeentch what costs a tiny amount of pts (about 55-65 i think), buy a unit of 10 mutants as your mandatory troops (a meer 30pts) and take cheap spawns that cost less than 2 normal CSM spawns to get 3 of them, and you can take 3 squads like that if you free up the pts.

Not true - You choose either the vanilla CSM, Black Legion or the Crimson Slaughter version when you create your army. Either have only their own artifacts

Also the spawn are marked by nurgle so a khorne lors would be unable to join them.

okay guys thanx for the advice. Seems that i have somethings to Think about.
Seems like i can save some Points removing mon from spawns and helm from chaos lord.
Still crap thou because now a lucky vindicator shot can take out the whole unit. I will ofcourse throw invis on the from belakor but sometimes i need it on the Knight.

One of the CSM ones out there seems to have all the items from all 3 codex on it on my friends version, but keeps the weapons from the CSM book and others under Weapons rather than artifacts.

Just a Quick report. Tournament didnt go well.
Faced necrons in the first match dual wraithspam. They were hard to take down and locked my troops in cc most of the match. 3+ 4+ fnp dies hard.
15-5 necrons

2nd game vs thundercav list
Dodged hes cav units (3 cav thunderwolf) shot em with drake and Knight until most had 1 wound. Then i charged and cleared 1 unit at the time. Cultists provided charge screen with obj cappin. 17-3 chaos.

3:rd game
5 flyrants and some ripper/ droppods and a carnifex.
Hes flyrants ate most of my infantery round 2. Killed most the of army round 3 and in the end it was Knight and heldrake vs the tyranid army. Not much to do vs that army and ended 17-3 tyranids.
Still killed 3 flyrants and a few swarms and both pods.

Ended up to be my worst tournament so far. Chaos marines are just to gimped at the moment. Until a new release ill stick to my 30k army or my grey Knights with imperial Knight allies.

Wraithspam and Flyrantspam.

...well, nobody can say the meta isn't diverse, these days. It's just damned hard to build a CSM list that can handle either, let alone both, of those...

CSM Plog, Tactica

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