Main weakness I see is no AA which I can live with as a CSM player, less AA means more CC monsters :biggrin:

Also, any suggestion you think can improve either list please suggest, i'm all ears in what you think will help either list wreck face.

Please, please comment/suggest/criticize!!

list 1, i'd say. The black mace in a DP hands will be quite useful if you happen to face some big nasty character. Also, i could provide some AA :laugh:

Yea, the one with the daemon prince. It gives you something to counter wraithknights

I'd probably keep the magma cutters on the maulerfiends to counter imperial knights, land raiders etc.

Strong list! Shame there are only two actual chaos marines in it :biggrin:

You and your AA! Haha appreciate the suggestion. I understand AA is big in competition, just it's difficult (CSM list wise and having the actual models wise-Raptors, hellblades etc) so I usually stick to all out assault/phycic.

I'd probably keep the magma cutters on the maulerfiends to
counter imperial knights, land raiders etc.
The lasher tendrails are to counter knights XD. Each is -2 attacks on a knight, usually if I get both tendrils in their it gives only 1 attack for d weapon stuff for the knight to attack with. Generally giving 2 attacks for a knight if 1 lasher tendril gets in there.

Do either of you think list 2 may be somewhat better with the more magic and nurgle spawn body count all rushing the enemy lines. Won't the prince get shot pieces generally easily.

Appreciate the replies/suggestions/critizisms. Keep them coming please! :D
