|cooldudeskillz||im not doing Apocalypse, but some times we use the Apocalypse ally rule where i would use chaos daemons and chaos marines working together.|

Now if you're talking Apocalypse then run Epidemius with a bunch of Plague Marines... bolters that ignore armor saves. mmmmm
As far as Flamers go, I've been running them in groups of 3 so I can drop them in front of advancing units of Bloodletters, Plaguebearers or Seekers. It works quite well and if they get wiped out then oh well. Its just 3 Flamers. If used well then you can easily have them make up their point cost before dying. I took out an entire squad of Deathwing Terminators with HQ last night with that tactic (granted I did roll like a champ) which left my Seekers out in the open instead of locked in CC so they ended up getting gunned down too. Oh well, sometimes a plan can work TOO well!

|necroman||I HATE FLAMERS, just posted it, ran a list actually similair to this, khorne/ tzech. with slow and purposeful icons. I HATE FLAMERS. im tired of paying 35 pts for a unit with scout stats. ive decided never to use them again, as they vary greatly depending on terrain. to much so. and I HATE EM. THEY AINT GOT 2+ SV OR 3+ SV OR 2 WOUNDS OR 5 TOUGHNESS, I.....HATE.....EM.|

|Inquisitor Varrius||Theoretically, it'd work in an Apocalypse game, no FoC, no hassle.|

I always have serious problems with bloodletters, their expensive, and if u play sm, their like ok well let me just shoot 4 frag missles their, oh wow i killed them all, that wasnt hard at all, especially in 5th, you deepstrike in a circle and get pwned. and the lord of change, for me isnt a very useable character, sure he is awesome, but seriously pt's wise i think 2 heralds of tzech is cheaper, more mobile with the jump upgrade, and about 100 pts cheaper.
besides that, the bloodthirster looks pretty decent. if ur looking for anti tank though, dont rely on bolt from the horrors, their horrible. its the next lascannon in rolls, or maybe thats just me and 2 other guys that happen to do nothing with them. i hate flamers now, but yeah theyll be ok in 5th.
besides that soulgrinders look awesome model wise, but i dont see them pulling much anti tank weight, with tongue, love when i have them in list 2, and have an icon right in front of enemy armour and just template it. works well with flamers too. blew up a baneblade that way.(well pretty much).
if ur set on oracle, i like to hide him behind the bloodthirster and make sure he is not exposed to the hvy weapons teams that way. he is really expensive and worries me in cc, with the new ld loss if u take 1 wound, ur down to 8 and have about 1/3 chance of losing him. he is also only 4, freakin 4 toughness i think, or maybe its 5, well its 1 lower than the normal CoW. hehehe thats cow, moooo.
lots of fun is oracle behind an unclean one or kugath, with fnp at 3+ from epidemus.
also if oracle alows rerolls for fnp, which i dont think he does, then awesome.

|cooldudeskillz||deamon prince is meant to support the bloodletters, i was thinking about adding the flamers together to form 6 flamers, so they can stay alive better if you know what i mean.|

|PUFNSTUF||looks good overall. Wings is just so damn expensive, I never want to pay the points for it unless I really need to (ie in Nurgle army since everything else is too slow). The dp seems really out of place... I'd get another soulgrinder, or Beef up all the bloodletter squads, maybe bring the flamers to 4 (since they drop like flies when shot at) or if needing a bit of fast add some hounds|
