CSM 1250pts tourny style

Hey everyone,
I've got a 1250pt tournament coming up in a few weeks and wanted to hear what you guys thought of my list. It's got 1 of every mission type, and one of their own missions thrown in (basically it's capturing objectives and a character). Here it is:

Black Legion

HQ:
Daemon Prince w/ wings, mark of Slaanesh, lash of submission 155

Elites

Troops
10 marines w/ icon of nurgle, missile launcher, plasma gun 225
# 7 Plague marines w/ flamer, Plague Champion w/ power weapon, plasma pistol, melta bombs 216
# Rhino w/ havoc launcher, extra armour 065
* 8 Khorne berzerkers w/ plasma pistol, Skull Champion w/ power fist, melta bombs 228
* Rhino w/ havoc launcher, extra armour 065

Fast Attack

Heavy Support
2 Obliterators 150
Vindicator w/ daemonic possession 145

Total: 1249

(Dedicated transports and their respective units have the same symbol)

Comments? Criticism? All welcome.

I can read your mind. Right now you think I'm lying.

games from August 2009 - now
w/d/l

HQ is perfect love it, Heavy Support is Great. Now the troops. The khorne bezerkers i would just drop the meltabombs and plasma pistol save the point they dont need them especially with a power fist. Plague marines i would drop the meltabombs and take a fist otherwise good. And the vanilla marines, honestly i would just take another squad of plague marines.

But good list and.. Deathnote for the win!

In addition to what Dr. Boggle mentioned I would get rid of the extra armour and havoc launchers (you can keep the extra armor if you REALLY want to, but the havoc launchers are gonna be useless, especially if you're moving 12 inches each turn). These points Dr. Boggle and my suggestions could be used to buy a couple extra plague marines/khorne berzerkers.

Good luck!

@Dr. Boggle: First off, good to see another death note fan. I've dropped the bombs for a fist, but don't have any more plague marines to replace the marines. I do however have thousand sons, but they're an entirely different unit so not sure which to take. Can't take off the plasma pistol on the berzerker, but don't want to take the whole thing off as that's 4 less attacks on the charge.

@Salio: Extra armour's modelled on permanently, so there's nothing I can do there. Taken off one havoc launcher though and used the points for a personal icon (in case oblits deep strike) and to upgrade the plague marine's flamer to a plasma gun. I couldn't think of anything usefull to use the other 15 points for, so left the other one.

So here's draft 2:

HQ
Daemon Prince w/ wings, mark of Slaanesh, lash of submission 155

Elites

Troops
10 marines w/ icon of nurgle, missile launcher, plasma gun 225
# 7 Plague marines w/ plasma gun, Plague Champion w/ power fist, plasma pistol 231
# Rhino w/ extra armour, havoc launcher 065
* 8 Khorne berzerkers w/ plasma pistol, Skull Champion w/ power fist, personal icon 228
* Rhino w/ extra armour 050

Fast Attack

Heavy Support
2 Obliterators 150
Vindicator w/ daemonic possession 145

Total: 1249

(Dedicated transports and their respective units have the same symbol)

So, what do you think? Should I take thousand sons? Any other changes?

sucks that your FLGS is being a stickler about WYSIWYG rules, otherwise you could just use 7 CSM as counts as PM's...

that's going of Dr. Boggle's excellent advice.

could you swap out the ML for a flamer and use IoS instead of of IoN for a dedicated assault force?

a flamer, plasma gun and PW with IoS would not be bad against hordes and some MEQ's.

not bad otherwise.

good hunting.

That's a good idea, I don't have an IoS but I do have an IoK (still perfect for assualts). I'd probably go with a meltagun over a flamer though, so I can pop transports.

How about this:

HQ
Daemon Prince w/ wings, mark of Slaanesh, lash of submission 155

Elites

Troops
# 10 marines w/ icon of khorne, melta gun, plasma gun, champ w/ plasma pistol, power weapon, melta bombs 255
# Rhino w/ extra armour 050
7 Plague marines w/ plasma gun, Plague Champion w/ power fist 216
* 8 Khorne berzerkers w/ plasma pistol, Skull Champion w/ power fist, personal icon 228
* Rhino w/ extra armour 050

Fast Attack

Heavy Support
2 Obliterators 150
Vindicator w/ daemonic possession 145

Total: 1249

(Dedicated transports and their respective units have the same symbol)

The only weakness with this is it leaves me with only the oblits for long range fire support, but it could still work...
