1500 Chaos Marines - Competitive

Hi everyone. I just started up with Chaos Space Marines a couple of months ago, but I feel like I’ve played enough battles to have a decent handle on the fundamentals of the army. Here’s the list that I used during my last few games.

In general I like the way my army plays but at the same time I’m not doing as well as I do with my other “main” armies (Blood Angels and Eldar). It’s hard to describe why. Shooty armies tend to focus-fire my important units down before I can reach them, or dedicated assault armies overwhelm my comparatively smaller assault capability. Maybe I also suffer from having very few models in play.

Please feel free to recommend any changes you can think of or build up a new list from scratch. I’m looking to try some major changes to the list just to see how new ideas would work out in practice. Fluff isn’t really a big concern for me. I would be open to swapping out my Tzeentch Prince for a Lash Prince, but the meta-game around my local club is so mech heavy that Lash hasn’t worked out for me in the past.


Daemon Prince – Wings, Mark of Tzeentch, Warptime, Wind of Chaos


6 Chosen – 5 Meltaguns


8 Berzerkers – Champion, Power Fist
Rhino – Extra Armour

7 Plague Marines – 2 Meltaguns, Champion, Power Fist
Rhino – Havoc Launcher

I'm with Hesky, haha. I would say swap out one of the PM squads for another bezerker squad but thats just me i guess i just like smash in the face, skewer in the belly ninja style ass kickery. i agree about the dropping of the havoc launchers and keep your rhinos plain and grabbing another oblit though that is sound advise. also i think the wind of chaos power is a little pricey for 1500 points. but i think MoTz is better for keeping your prince alive than MoN though. i mean the stuff that usually get shot at my prince totally ignores a toughness 5 or 6 so no difference other than wasted points( str 8 and str 9 wound on a 2+ anyway) In this army he will be the biggest target so they will use the big guns against him. I promise you
