One of my friends wants to start a CSMarine Khorne army and asked me to make a decent competitive list for him. I was under the impression that Zerkers love running out of LRaiders and also know that they are best when paired so please tell me what you think.

165
Kharn
(Goes with the Bezerker unit w/o the Icon)

185
5x CTerminators: 2x PFists, 2x Combi-Melta, HFlamer

208
8x KBerzerkers: Champ w/PFist
(Ride in a LRaider w/Kharn)

213
8x KBerserkers: Champ w/PFist, PIcon
(Ride in the other LRaider)

156
12x LDeamons
(A very good shock/tie-up unit [in my experience])

220
LRaider

220
LRaider

130
CPredator: LCannon sponsons
(Decent and cheap transport/MCreature killer)

1497pts

... I hate Oblits ...

Alrighty then, I've looked through a good number of Zerker lists and revamped the entire list so stay with me here:

140
DPrince: MoK, Wings
(cheap MCreature/fire-magnet)

155
CLord: MoK, PoLClaws, MBombs, JPack
(goes with the Raptor unit)

105
CDreadnought: MLauncher, HFlamer
(cheap Dread/fire-magnet, choose Missles so if he goes nuts I can switch the type of ammo, only ranged support in the army)

105
CDreadnought: *same as above

105
CDreadnought: *same as above

243
8x KBerzerkers: Champ w/ PFist, Rhino

243
8x KBerzerkers: *same as above

243
8x KBerzerkers: *same as above

160
8x CRaptors
(kinda upset that I couldn't give them any wargear)

1499pts

So is this one any better or should I stick with first one?

@Inquisitor Malaclypse & ROT: I see what you guys are saying and thats why I added in the Dreads with MLs. I tried to think of a ranged transport killer that wouldn't get let behind by the rest of the army but I guess 3x MLaunchers probubly won't cut it. I'll try to switch some more ideas around.

I don't really see how Termicide or Deepstriking Oblits are going to help this list a whole lot. You need to get your troops in close to use them and if I'm already that close I can just run a Dread/DPrince/Zerkers at the transports. Also how do your Battlecannons help you out? Do you target the transports with them?

@Chaosftw: Hate maybe too strong of a word, I just don't like the fact everyone thinks of them as the be all end all HS slot for CSM. In my experiences with them you get 1 shot for 75 pts that will die to a Str 8+ weapon just as easily as a Havoc member (if them are both in cover which them should be anyway).

Me personally would rather field a Vindicator or Las-Predator to do one speciffic job for cheaper.

@XxDreMisterxX: I've used the Greater Deamon before in a "vanilla" CSM armylist I made a while back and it did well, I just needed more ranged anti-tank for this list. I had the CC aspect with the Princes and Zerkers.

Ok thanks guys for all the advice. I went back to look at ROT's lists again and decided to use the first 1,500pt list and adjust some points around for some other models I wanted to use. The next time I run a game I'll let you know how it goes.
