Default 300pts 1HQ 1Troop

Have a small tournement on sunday. 300pts 1HQ (optional) and 1 Troop choice. No deep strike, no reserves and no vehicles. What i have now is a Sorcerer with Gift of Chaos and 8 Marines, 1 being a champion, Icon of Chaos Glory and a melta gun. OR Kharn with 6 berserkers. OR Typhus with I think it worked out to 4-5 marines no upragdes. OR A Chaos lord with terminator armour 8 CSM or 5-6 plagues. If anyone else has some good suggestions. One army i might face is my wifes Orks 1 Warboss and a nice mob of 30 boyz.

Plague Marines their tough, the FNP will come in handy, melta, and one idea let's you be fluffy.
10 PM squad- 2x Meltas, Champ with PF, and 10pts left over.
or
Plague lord with PW, 7 PMarines - melta

Second one sound good. What I'm figuring is that the fact they made it VERY clear HQ optional that most are going to try and run full troops. HQ can mop up pretty good with a nice crew. Thnx.

I take it that it is one on one, it would be pretty awesome if you could do a free-for-all.
If you want sheer numbers just go with Full CSM unit of 20 even with a HQ 40 RF Bolter rounds or 20 BPs to the head can put down a serious hurt, not to mention a potential 60 CC attacks on the charge and 40 if not.. I'd still go with the plague marines but its just an idea that poped out when you said full troops.

If it was me I would consider

DP with wings, warptime 155

5 Plague Marines, 2 plasma 145

Thats 300 points of re-roll to hit and wound, and 5 FNP, with two 24in strength 7 AP2 shots.

This small a game... Iam almost tempted by Thousand Sons, and a second Sourcer as a HQ.. Take Gift of Chaos and start to GROW! your army by picking off weak troops.

From my understanding this is a one on one, small store tourney. DP sounds good as well. Its been 2 years since I played at this store and the guys that were there were 100% unpainted and kind of unsure of what to except. I've played a few tourney's at this store and a ton of fun games. Most of which are 1000 to 5000 points. 300 just dumbfounded me. But I still have to base my list to the 1 army list I know is 100% which is the wife's army, Warboss, 29 boyz and a nob.

Maybe the dude who made the sign forgot to put the last zero on the points value.. nah just kidding. I'd tend to agree with these guys, plague marines are a real pain in the ass to kill, and yeah you are going to have a hard time against stuff like 29 boyz.

HA I wish they did. Im pretty sure that I will be rockin either full plague marine or the DP with wings and warptime and plague marines. DP with a jump pack could really jack up their plans. No fast units means all ground bound units the quickness might mess the sit and shot until they die plan. Thanks for all your help!!
