Primarch Lorgar another thing is for 5 points less you get the more reliable berzerkers, you could swap the possesed for some more of them! if you have any points left, put them in a rhino, then they can engage the enemy in CC even sooner, as sir m1ke said "rhinos- your force lacks mobility needed to capture objectives"

sir_m1ke Drop the possessed is the best advice i can give- they are a cc unit that are pretty average in cc. the strength 5 and 2 attacks seem good, but unless you roll a 6 for power weapons you will struggle with them

i would rather the points be spent on more rhinos- your force lacks mobility needed to capture objectives

Primarch Lorgar Burius-Drak'shal was amazing, I nick-named my icon bearer that!

Raptor_00 It's true, that the army itself is undivided but there were CSM in the book that leaned towards one god.
Burias leaned towards Slaanesh I think (always power hungry with drive towards more). Jarulek was maybe Tzeentch, Kol Badar was maybe Khorne (or maybe leaned in that direction if not outright worshiping him the most.
So, i don't see a problem with tossing in a few CSM with some marks/icons of the different gods and still staying true to the fluff.

It also helps not having the cult troops to add the icons game wise.

Bakx yeah I've read those books. they have a standard bearer named Burias Drak'shal who always carry the IoCG proudly and he's half possessed by a daemon.

Primarch Lorgar in the books I read about word bearers, (DARK APOSTLE & DARK ACOLYTE) they were daemon crazy!, and to my knowledge they had IoCG, bit I'm not sure!

Khorothis Erm... I thought Word Bearers use IoCG, but never mind that. Your icons aren't put in the right places IMHO.

Possessed->Tzeentch (give them a Rhino)
Havocs->Nurgle (Its not worth it to give Havocs LCs, give them MLs and you'll be fine.)
Flamer CSM->Khorne
Other CSM->Slaanesh (BTW these guys should have Meltas, you're weak in the anti-tank department)

Those Daemons need some balancing: 14-14 should be the best.

Bakx nice theme going on here, Glory to Chaos undivided!!

i'm gonna go with your thing here(no "cult" marines just generic CSM with marks and LOTSA daemons), just make a few adjustments.

Havocs should go either all ML or all Lascannon. it determines what they should be shooting at.

take the Plasma Pistol from the Slaneeshi champ. he won't really need it if he's squad goes assaulting all the time.

remove Daemonic Possession on the Rhino. it's no really worth putting it there, besides EA should be enough.

give your possessed a Rhino. by removing DP on the other Rhino and the PP from the champ you should have enough points for it.

Primarch Lorgar NICE! havocs has no "K"! Did you know that the daemon primarch lorgar is worshipped as the highest god by the word bearers!? The Lacrimosa is their holy book! (Look at my profile and signature!)

Ok this list has one unit from each god, and a lot of deamons.

Daemon Prince, Warp Time. 135

Possessed (5), Champion, Mark of Khorne. 170

Chaos Space Marines (10), Aspiring Champion, Power Sword, Plasma Pistol, Flamers x2, Mark of Slanessh, Rhino, Demonic Possession. 280

Chaos Space Marines (10), Plasma Gun, Heavy Bolter, Mark of Nurgle. 225

Havoks (5), 2x Missile Launcher, 2x Lascannon, Mark of Tzeentch. 225

Summond Greater Deamon. 100

Summoned Lesser Deamons (20). 260

Summoned Lesser Deamons (8). 104

Total: 1,499

The slanessh unit goes forward in the rhino, with the possessed and the prince running behind them to support them, with the havocs and the nurgle squad hang back on an objective.

What changes could be made?
