1500pt Rhino Rush

This is basically an assault list that I fancy trying out at some point.

Huron Blackheart, 9 Khorne Berserkers, Skull Champion with Power Weapon, Rhino with Dozer Blade & Extra armour.

10 Khorne Berserkers, Skull Champion with Power Weapon, Rhino with Dozer Blade & Extra armour.

10 Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Khorne, Aspiring Champion with power weapon, 2 Plasma Guns, Rhino with Dozer Blade & Extra Armour.

10 Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Khorne, Aspiring Champion with power weapon, 2 Plasma Guns, Rhino with Dozer Blade & Extra Armour.

Preadator, Dozer Blade, Twin-linked Lascannon & Lascannon Sponsons.

Basically as the title says the infantry would leg it forward in their rhinos, with the Predator providing some fire support

i usually have 4 squads of CSMs in rhinos with some elites & commander in a 'rader. pred & jump troops also if i can afford to have them in the list.

as with regular marines a totally moble force makes for quick offensive games. build a rhino wall to block shots and get into assault. (the only army i find that does not work too well against is the assault armies: Chaos, 'nids, & sometimes orks)

agenst orks and nids, i recommend building a defensive wall of rhinos and waite to counter charge.

as to the list? i have a feeling your wasting valuable points on dozer blades. when rhinos can repair an immobilized anyways i do not think they are needed. you could always just go around anyway.

I've often thought that myself Syko, but somehow apart from Tzzentch affiliated Rhinos, they don't look right without the Dozer Blade.

a mech army could hurt this build; you ony have on AT unit on the board, and once that's gone, good luck taking out other tanks.

i'd invest in some melta guns and PF.

good hunting.

You might want the dozer blade, but I would still drop them. i doubt anyone will complain that they are modeled with them. Also drop extra armor execpt on the Zerker rhino. Use the points to get another pred.

This is built to take on a pretty specific kind of army, one which I'm fairly certain won't contain any tanks. Even so I'm thinking of swapping out the Predator for some missile-armed Havocs

I want to make sure they get there, also even if I got rid of the armour and the dozer blades it wouldn't be enough points for a pred, unless I went for a basic autocannon only option.

i would lose the mark of khorne and dozer blades on the reg units if u want khorne zerkers use khorne zerkers its just my opinion and if u want a rush army with big hitting power get a 3 man term sqd 90 points drop them in a raider 220 310 points of big scaryness but dont realy on it to make winning moves and drop the las pred its to costly to have blown outta the water maybe replace it with a dakka pred its up to u its ur army but thats just my onion

not to push the idea, but a basic auto cannon pred is an extreme annoyance to marine armies, and even worse for anything else. i love pouring 6 heavy bolter shots, 2 autocannon shots, and a havoc launcher into a squad of genestealers.....buggies make funny popping noises.

about the astetic looks of dozer blades? my thousand sons rhinos have dozer blades on them. i just don't use them. you are correct.. rhinos do not lok right without them.
