Default CSM 2000 (Primarily Nurgle)

Ok, so I'm having trouble finishing out my list... What I've got so far I feel is pretty solid, but it feels a bit off... What I have now is:

HQ

DP - Wings, MoN, Warptime - 175
DP - Wings, MoN, Rot - 165

Elite
Termicidex3 - CombiMeltax3 - 105

Troop
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 261
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 261
PMx7 - Plasmax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 271
Zerkersx8 - ChampW/Fist, Icon - 213

Heavy
Oblitsx2 - 150
Oblitsx2 - 150
LR - DP - 240

This comes out to 1991/2000. I don't know about the LR for the Zerkers, though a Rhino doesn't always get the job done. I'm a bit worried about horde armies and a lack of anything truly reliable in clearing them out. I've also been a bit underwhelmed by the zerkers as of late, so I'm open to trading them out.

I like this as well. However, if you're dropping the Berzerkers I would pick up two more of these guys and run them in the LR (maybe with CombiFlamers).

Troop
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 261
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 261
PMx7 - Plasmax2, ChampW/Fist, Icon, Rhino - 271
Zerkersx8 - ChampW/Fist, Icon - 213
I'm with you on ditching the Berzerkers. I'd use the points to flesh out the Termies and get yourself some Havoc Launchers to help with hordes.

Heavy
Oblitsx2 - 150
Oblitsx2 - 150
LR - DP - 240

Really, your list looks solid. As I said, you could drop the 'Zerkers and pimp your termies/get some anti-horde for the Rhinos.

i agree. i'd leave it as is and (if you can) give some one a personal icon or give the 'Zerker rhino a combi-melta.

good hunting.

Wait, so you're idea of dealing with hordes is to drop more infantry? don't do that. zerkers kick ass against all hordes, especially if you get the charge. Even orks don't stand a chance. If you really want to make them awesome change a squad of plague marines for another squad of zerks and run 2 and 2. You'll dominate for sure

After looking over a few suggestions from here and from friends, I've put together a potential second list.


HQ
DP - Wings, MoN, Warptime - 175
DP - Wings, MoN, Rot - 165

Elite
Termicidex3 - CombiMeltax3 - 105

Troop
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Rhino - 256
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Rhino - 256
PMx7 - Meltax2, ChampW/Fist, Rhino - 256
Zerkersx8 - ChampW/Fist, Rhino- 243
Zerkersx8 - ChampW/Fist, Rhino- 243

Heavy
Oblitsx2 - 150
Oblitsx2 - 150

This list comes out to 1999, and should deal with just about anything pretty well. I'm hoping that the Princes and Zerkers will present pretty even targets as far as priority. I can only imagine that unless I get seriously focus fired down this should preform pretty well.
