Number 9. Chosen getting in first and then rapidly destroying vehicles is always a great thing to do.

First let me commend you upon your 1500pt list; me thinks you will be making lots and lots of friends.

In saying that, you might as well go the whole hog, the strongest option is 8, buffing up those Rhino's and adding a third Plague Marine troop choice makes the most sense. At least IMO. Plus I love having a combi-Flamer with two meltas to help turn that squad into a horde killer as well as vehicle hunter.

Hope that helps.

i like 3, 4, or 10. honestly when i field dreadnoughts for chaos i like MLs keeping it "near" to the side of a tank & if it fire frenzies its shooting the rhino & cant hurt it.

On #12 I believe the termies are over priced.

I like 11, the extra rhino (assuming the chosen are usually infiltrating) gives your squads and Daemon prince much more needed maneuverability considering rhino's usually get popped early.

12 would probably be my favorite if it had more, as I think you really need some advance troops for guard and such, don't know if I would want more plas or melta, or what.

option 4 :D

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!

Berserkers add things that your army needs at this point value

you need another troop choice AND you need somthing that isnt going to suck ass in melee combat

Go with option 8. You need more scoring units.

good hunting.
