Chaos Marine Question

So I was watching alot of chaos Marine Battle Reports, and I play a chaos marine or two. I noticed Khorne is of course popular, and Tzeech once or twice, and Nurgle is loved. I mean I see Nurgle at least as support.

But I never See any Slaanesh. Where Are the sound Marines? Are they that bad? Or what?

Noise marines are ok for one of two things:

A shooty squad with all sonic blasters and one blastmaster.
Or.
A combat squad with all sonic blasters and champ. with PW and Doom Siren.

Hope that helps.

Yes.... I just don't remember seeing anyone even think about using them, and when I was going to play chaos that was like my favorite choice for army.

I suppose it may be to do with Slaanesh's themes, after all horrific rape, incest and perversion among other things can be viewed as weird by others.

Personally I like Slaanesh, I find his followers interesting.

Sounds like a good time to me....My buddy, the REVEREND HOBO I mentioned in my introduction, reminded me that their bonus is an initiative bonus. And it's built for shooting armies, so it comes out wiht useless bonus.

My army is mostly Slaanesh. I'm only now adding the other god's units. Noise Marines are quite good if used right. You have to assault the armies that don't like to fight, and stand and shoot the armies that want to get into CC.

The thing is, the Icon of Slaanesh is actually pretty good and it's cheap, so you can use more than just Noise Marines, while all the other Icons are situation, but usually are too expensive, or don't do enough compared to the cult troops.

I use Slannesh Daemonettes as a summonable backup, great for assaulting.

Awesome! Because As much as I love the Tyranids. IF January totally ruins them, I need a replacement, and I'm torn between Ig or Sound.

Slaaneshi armies can be very interesting for both Chaos Marines and Daemons.

Slaaneshi Chaos Marine armies tend to be the most versatile of any mono-God force. Unlike Khornate armies which are really only good at close combat, or Tzeentchian ones that mostly excel at shooting, the followers of Slaanesh can be good at either one, or even both!

A favorite Noise Marine unit that my friend uses:

6 Noise Marines
- 6 sonic blasters
Pts: 150

This one is all about tearing into lightly armored infantry. Deadly on the move or stationary, these guys are almost always worth their points, despite the small unit size.

8 Noise Marines
Noise Champion
- Bolt pistol
- Bolter
- Power weapon
- Doom Siren
7 Noise Marines
- Bolters
- Bolt pistols
- Close combat weapons
Rhino
Pts: 240

These guys are nasty in close combat as they can throw out a lot of high Initiative Attacks while the Champion wields a power weapon to deal with heavily armored targets and a doom siren to soften up just about anything before getting stuck in.

Yeah. My buddy plays Khorne/Nurgle. All he uses the plaque marines for is a wall/defender, which is very appropiate for their skills. Khorne of course he charges in and CC everyone to death. Its fun to watch a genestealer/Khorne fight now that I think about it.
