In my next matchup I am facing off against a loyalist space marine player who will have a 150 point advantage over me. The only real info I can really plan around is that I know he doesn’t have too many vehicles beside a dreadnaught and a drop pod. So here’s the list I’m thinking about running:

1x Daemon Prince - Wings, MoN, Warptime - 175

4x Terminators – Chain Fist, Power Fist, 2xCombi Weapons - 155

10x CSM - Champion, Power Weapon, Lascannon, Melta, MoS, Rhino - 265

10x CSM - Champion, Power Fist, 2x Flamer, MoS, Rhino - 255

2x Obliterators - 150

Total: 1000

Now I’m kinda limited on models. The only thing I have left over is a land raider, an extra terminator, another rhino, some berserkers, and a defiler, a few extra troops, and all the little extras that those models came with. And for fluff sake I was thinking about making this a Iron Warriors-ish build.

So I’m trying to figure out the weaknesses in the build or issues I might run into. Any Friendly Suggestions would be appreciated.

Based on what you mentioned, I would drop the termies, drop one of your CSM squad to five marines with a flamer to guard your home objective and take 'Zerkers in a Rhino. You could still paint the army as IW, just say the 'Zerkers are a breach assault force for when defenses crumble.

good hunting.

id just use a normal DP w/ WT & wings - MoT if anything for the 4++

id drop the lascannon from the 1st CSM squad, take a second melta

if your taking a PF dont use MoS - use chaos glory or nothing

if your opponent doesnt have too much armor why do your termies have PFs? just use PWs & combi flamers, maybe MoS

perhaps the defiler could work...but those are rather expensive at this point level - IF you had them id run 2 vindicators

Thanks for pointing out the powerfist/Slaanesh overlap, don’t know why I didn’t see it.

But I would like to keep some anti-vehicle/monstrous creature protection just in case my opponent get’s teamed up Imperial Guard or Eldar.

And running three troop choices also makes more sense. Giving him several targets would help disperse what firepower he has.

So here is an updated list:

1x Daemon Prince - Wings, MoN, Warptime – 175

7x CSM – Icon of CG, Flamer, Rhino – 155

10x CSM - Champion, Power Weapon, 2x melta, Icon of S, Rhino – 255

8x Berzerkers – Skull Champion, Power Fist, Rhino - 243

2x Obliterators – 150

Total: 978

That gives me 22 points leftover. I’m tossed up though on either adding another troop to one of the two squads or giving one of my rhinos extra armor or a havoc launcher.

Thanks again for your comments.
