Total: 1500pts

I'm going to try out the lash. It sounds pretty good so I figure it's worth a shot. The guys at my shop recommended meltaguns for the PM squads so again, I'm going to give it a shot. I was going to use Kharn but i really feel like he's overpriced. I've used him and had had him get totally wrecked in close combat. Instead I'm using a sorcerer with another Lash. I'm pretty new to the game so tactic ideas and all that are all appreciated.

Very solid and very competitive list. The EA isn't really needed on the PM rhinos, maybe drop it for another body in a squad. Not really that important, but it's a thought. You could also give the 2 PM rhinos havoc launchers instead of EA. They are quite nifty and give the rhino a bit more use after dropping off their squad rather than just sitting with a bolter.

Hey there! While I personally reason that 1500 is not worth playing at, as there simply aren't enough units to play with, regardless of codex, it looks as if you have a good basis to go from.

Now, I checked the numbers right quick, and if you drop the PM squads to 5 man, drop the pfist champ (really not worth 40 pts), and get rid of the termicide squad, you will be able to put in a third choice of 3 Obliterators, or even squeeze in Kharn by switching him with the DP. The safety of the Rhinos with EA, coupled with one Lash, the insane assault ability of Kharn and a good squad of Zerks, then augmented with Oblits, will do quite well for this points level.

Have you considered Chaos Dreads? Their EA and Multi-Melta combination is quite successful.

I would stick with what you have, but take off the EA on the rhinos.

I have about the same list, but I was wondering when I created mine: would this list not be vulnerable against larger number armies (Orks, Tyranids)?

That depends on relative skill and list building ability of the 'Nid player, but the ability to keep entire squads of carnifexes, gaunts, or boyz hordes away, grants a large advantage to the Chaos player. Lash things out of synapse, keep boyz back, control the charge, and laugh at how many fearless wounds the Orks or Tyranids must take.

take out the terminators, practically useless. I guess you could hope you blow something up with those combi meltas, but weak both in close combat and range considering you only have three. I'd upgrade the rhinos with weapons and perhaps daemonic possession.

I love terminators, and have 25 of them... but they don't get used in anything less than 2000 points.

I'd go for some chosen with power weapons or melta/flamers, drop the terminators and sorceror.

I think Berzerkers are the absolute KINGS in a landraider! Thought about that?

Deux: Thanks, I think I will drop the EA on the PM Rhinos. I’ve never used the Havoc Launchers, actually, I hadn’t really even thought of it. If I have some extra points later I think I’m going to try it out.

Ishmael: Prettymuch everyone at my shop plays at 1500 and I really don’t think I could afford to go up to a higher point bracket. Lol. I actually used to run Kharn but I felt like he was not as impressive in combat as I had thought he was going to be. It actually really bums be out because he’s my favorite hero. I haven’t tried dreads but I think I’m going to try to keep Dreads and defilers out of my list.

Frogthor: Thanks for the comment, I think I will. At least, on the PM rhinos.

Tyrinian: I played orks last night and the army ran like a dream. I ended up taking out most of his army by turn 3 and he conceded. I have not had the chance to play against tyranids yet so I can’t tell you how it does against them. The army I’ve had the most trouble with do far has got to be Imperial Guard.

Inquisitor Malaclypse: Thanks man. I used the Sorc for the first time lastnight. That whip is sick.

Ckcrawford: I actually really like the terminators. They take out more points than they cost in almost every single game and can even do some damage in close combat if they make it that far. I was actually thinking of adding another squad of them if I could find the points.

Dillusion1979: I would LOVE to put my berzerkers in a land raider but I can’t afford it just yet. I’ve been looking around for a used one on craigslist or something but I haven’t found one yet. Once I get a land raider though, I definitely plan to add it to my list.
