Alright guys and gals, After my last attempt at creating a "different" CSM list (which crashed and burned) I told myself that I was to create a new list that I personaly thought of how I would make the units that we were given better and more effective. I tried dozens of combinations with each and every unit in the dex and finally I came to what I think is a "good"/fun list. Enjoy and don't be afraid to give your opinion.

180
DPrince- Wings, MoN, WoChaos
(MoN for small arms fire, WoChaos to melt face thats in cover. This guy's main target: Dug-in Infantry)

175
DPrince- Wings, MoT, WTime (possibly switch for BoChange, can't decide)
(MoT for heavy gun protection, WTime [or BoChange] for maximum carnage)

289
8x Chosen CSM- MoK, 2x PFist, 3x Meltagun, Rhino
(These maniacs will be out-flanking into whatever is unlucky enough to get that close to the board edge. All the gear choices are pretty obvious and devastating)

280
8x Noise Marines- Champ w/ PFist and DSiren, PIcon, 5x SBlasters, Rhino
(Gotta be honest, I havn't used these guys yet but after some play-testing they look pretty good. My main assualt units that dish out plenty of hurt)

280
8x Noise Marines- *same as above*

130
10x LDeamons
(What can I say I love these little buggers. They always do exactly what I need them to do: Deepstrike, Assualt, Tie-up, Harass)

165
CPredator- Twin-linked Lascannon, Lascannon Sponsons
(Classic anti-armour unit. I also couldn't make up my mind in using this or Havocs with 4x MLaunchers but ended up choosing this because it should get over looked with all the other tanks and MCreatures roaming about)

1499

So there you have it, the last CSMarine list I will be making for myself. *crosses fingers*Now for my next project: Imperial Guard. God help us all.

I must say, for a "good"/fun list, I like it!

It manages to bring hard-hitting power coupled with some in-your-face units that should do a lot of damage to the enemy.

Let me know how you go when you use the list, cause I'd be interested to know how it works out for you :)

it's actually a pretty good list, though your Chosen's wargear is unconventional, i see that you're not trying to use them as a throw away anti-tank unit (you could have gone with 5 meltas and 5 Chosen and saved up on points otherwise), and if you're having success with it, then keep it.

only unit i woulc changes is the Pred. i would have taken the Havocs myself, but that's because there's too many units that can kill a tank with one hit.

good hunting.

Thanks guys for the positive feedback and for the views. This is the first CSM list I'm actually excited to play and collect (seeing the new Deamon Prince sprues didn't hurt). What I was thinking tho, what I might do is take out 2x LDeamons and 1x Meltagun from the Chosen and give them one more PFist and put a Combi-melt on their Rhino so when they arrive from the board edge they can unleash 3x Melta shots without jumping from their transport AND have 6x (9x on the charge) Str. 8 swings in CC.

As I'm kinda in a situation were I can't play as much as I want to I won't be a ble to give you guys feedback anytime soon but I will do my best.
