I have a few commanders, one is termie armor, Twin Lightning Claws (Master Crafter), Termie Honors, and some other stuff (sheets are at home)

Another is Artificer Armor, Combi Melta, MC Power Weapon, Iron Halo,

And my chaplain is Art Armor, MC TLC, Jump Pack,

This isn't everything because all my sheets are at home.

i use:
daemon prince (200 points)
mark of tzeentch
bolt of change

i'd like to try a chaos lord with the shooty aproach, which isn't really possible for most commanders due to lack of useful shooting weapons. he would kind of look like this:

chaos lord (160 points)
mark of tzeentch
terminator armour
daemon weapon

so this guy is quite capable of shooting around 2 meqs per round and still has some cc punch should the enemy reach your lines. he might get a glutton for punishment by hurting himself by throwing ones in shooting and close combat but he still got his 4+ inv save so that won't be that much of a problem i think. i plan to use this as secondary hq to support the gun line and fend of assaulters, while the daemon prince wreacks havoc at the front line

I think I'm going to tool up my characters initially. For now it will be becuase we will likely only fight small skirmish battles of like 500 points since we have limited time and space.

For Chaos I see 2 possibilities:
Chaos Lord
Mark of Nurgle
Plague Sword
Plasma Pistol
Daemonic Strength
Daemonic Visage
Nurgle's Rot
Blight Grenades
Hmmm....I know there was more but I forget what else off the top of my head.

For my marine Master I plan on using Jump Pack, Term Honors, L Claw x2, and Iron Halo IIRC, plus frag and krak.

Mostly HtH guys.

Now Im looking at what if I go with a non Nurgle Chaos Lord. Khorne has some possibilites and I definitely want to get a hold of a Chaos Term lord.
I only wish I had my converted model for my nurgle lord with me.

Daemon Prince
Icon of Tzeentch
Wind of Chaos

Slaanesh Sorcerer
Lash of Submission
Personal Icon

Tau Shas'el
Plasma Rifle
Twinlinked Missile Pod
HW Multitracker

As you can see, I tend to keep my characters on the cheap side with just enough to make them effective.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

As with all units, it's best to keep commanders as slim as possible while still enabling them to do what they're supposed to. I don't usually run terminator honors on my libby even though I use him for countercharging simply because I can spend the points elsewhere more effectively (in this case, it puts a lascannon in my tac squad).

On the other hand, an attack squig costs the same number of points and does the same thing but my warboss always has one because he's driving towards melee every round on his warbike and rather than an extra (rerollable) strength 4 power attack for my libby, it gives him an extra strength 10 power attack. With 7 attacks on the charge a warboss on a bike can even down monoliths and other skimmers.
