World Eaters

Khorne Daemon Prince 140
+Wings

Troops
10 Khorne Berzerkers 250
+Skull Champion with Powerfist

10 Khorne Berzerkers 250
+Skull Champion with Powerfist

Elites
Dreadnought 110

755
So what do you think I am 5 points over ATM.

I would consider changing those Zerkers into regular CSM to free up points for more units.

At such a low point game numbers tent to tilt battles in your favour.

Cheers,

You could get Mark of Slaanash on your DP for the cost of melta bombs, gives you I 6. Could also give him Mark of Nurgle or Tzeentch but then you're starting to invest alarge percentage of your points into a single model.

Drop Dread, at this low points cost the cost of it misfiring even once would hurt alot.

i almost hate to agree with Chaosftw; not that his advice is bad, it simply changes the dynamic of your whole army.

personally, if you're playing on a city board then you'll have to make a lot of rolls to move in/out of hindering terrain and your 'Zerkers could as they rush the enemy.

TSons or PMs are in order, and a couple of Oblits for good measure.

good hunting.

I'd keep it pretty much the way it is. If you're worried about the Dread give him 2 DCCWs and a heavy flamer. He will butcher in CC. Or give him a heavy flamer and plasma cannon. The plasma cannon can butcher infantry and light vehicles plus if you do frenzy on your own units you can choose not to reduce the scatter amount assuming you don't roll a direct hit.

With your left over points you could consider getting one squad a rhino. Assuming there are avenues between the buildings this can move one unit swiftly and block LoS to your Prince behind it. Then I'd give your Dread extra armor to keep it moving.

This keeps your army looking more like World Eaters and less like Black Legion. Not that I hate on the guys in Black but where is their super cool battle cry? Hhhmmm?

Anything with a flamer of heavy flamer is good for city fights. Ignoring cover is the win.

I would swap the lascannons off the dread, stick on a ML, EA and HF,
With the points left over take a rhino, whether you put troops in it is another matter, but you could use it to block line of sight, use it to protect your DP and dread, and use it to recklessly tank shock any troops in the open!

Thanks for all the comments, but I'll have to explain one thing: This is a budget army, I have AoBR since I play Orks, I thought that if I buy a box of zerkers, I could easily convert the marines of AoBR in zerkers with spare parts etc. , AoBR is also the reason for the Dread, I like the Dread and I have one from AoBR. Now I only have to buy 1 box of 'zerkers and a DP, wich only costs me 56 euros.
Also I want a World Eaters theme, so if you guys can keep this in mind when commenting that would be great.

EDIT: I updated the list

I looked at the amount of terrain and I need Rhino's , so the list got changed.

Here's the revised list:

HQ
Daemon Prince 140
+Mark of Khorne ; Wings

Troops
8 Khorne Berserkers 208
+Skull Champion with Power Fist
--Rhino-- 35

8 Khorne Berserkers 208
+Skull Champion with Power Fist
--Rhino--35

Elites
Dreadnought 110
+Plasma Cannon and Heavy Flamer

741

Also I got an optional second list using the same models, in case I want to try something different out.

HQ

Daemon Prince 155
+Wings, Mark of Slaanesh, Lash of Submission

Troops

10 Chaos Space Marines 205
+Chaos Glory Icon, 2 Meltas, Champion with Fist
--Rhino 35

10 Chaos Space Marines 165
+Chaos Glory Icon, 2 Meltas, Champion with Fist
--Rhino 35

Elites

Dreadnought 115
+Heavy Flamer and Plasma Cannon

Total: 750

So what do you think
