Default Slaanesh Chaos Marine 600pt Army list

Hi All, looking for help on my army list for 8th ed. Playing against a Dark Angels player that likes bikers, psykers and skimmers.

The below list is what I currently own in Minis and don't want to spend too much extra as we are only playing casual combat patrols.

This is what I have so far.

Chaos Lord
(Not sure of what to take)

4 Noise Marines
1 Noise Champion
doom siren
lightning claw+pistol

Rhino + combimelta

Right now, the biggest thing your list is lacking is a troop choice to make a battleforged patrol detachment; or third elite choice to make a battleforged vanguard detachment. A third squad of noise marines or a regular chaos marine squad, or squad of cultists is all you'd need.

Beyond that, are your noise marine squads equipped with any sonic blasters?

In regards to equipping the lord, a power sword or axe should be more than enough, though a pair of lightning claws to give him an extra attack isn't a bad choice either.


Against bike and skiller heavy Dark Angels your going to want to try and grab some high strength weapons to mitigate the higher toughness they will be bringing to the board. If you take a squad of chaos marines, I'd grab a lascannon or autocannon for both the higher strength and ability to deal more than one wound per shot.

I would recommend something like:

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I am trying to keep my units as close to a 7th ed list I had and we are playing open, so no need to conform to battleforged, but don't want to play a cheesey army.

No sonic blasters yet but I am open to them.

Oh well that certainly makes things easier.

In your mind what constitutes a cheesey army?

Normally I would say definitely go for them, however your going to be facing against enemies with toughness +5 and multiple wounds.

That being the case I would recommend taking a blast-master on each squad so that you have some weapons with high strength and the ability to deal 2-3 damage per shot. Taking those, in addition to a power axe or maul on your lord on your current list would get you to 601 (axe) or 600 (maul).

In my mind cheesyness would be Min/Maxing to combat a specific army I guess with things that I could not possibly beat.

Thanks for your help, I decided to go with the Power Axe for the Chaos Lord, And Blast Masters for my Noise Marines. Will let you know how it goes after my first play test.

I also just recently realized that this list could, in fact, be battleforged if you want. If your chaos marines use the Emperors Children as their legion keyword than noise marines become troops.

Yes they can! As they do have that legion, thank you for giving me that info also.
