Ok, I was intregued by the steel bretheren while flicking through the codex. But when I looked for further information on them there wasn't any. So i've had to go with what was put down which is "Extensive use of Drop Pods and Transport" So since I can't have drop pods, i've decided that i'm going to run with an Iron warrior theme, with lots and lots of transport.

Heres my first attempt at a list, anyone who knows anything about the Steel Bretheren please post.

HQ
Chaos Lord – Daemon Weapon
Terminator Armour 145
Landraider


Elites
Chaos Terminators - 4 men
2 Combi-Melta
2 Combi-Plasma
2 Power Fist
Chain Fist 170
Land Raider

Troops
Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Fist
2 Plasma Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 230
Rhino APC 35

Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Weapon
2 Melta Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 210
Rhino APC 35

Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Fist
2 Melta Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 220
Rhino APC 35

Heavy Support
Obliterator Cult – 2 Men 150

Landraider - 220
Still counted as heavy support because lord is in there with the terminators.


TOTAL - 1500 POINTS

solid list, but i would drop the CF from he termies if you're going with two PF.

i'd drop the Daemon Weapon from the Lord for LC's.

lastly, i would change the CSM squad with the plasma guns to NM.

bear in mind that with a name like Steel Brethren you could have troopers that are super tough (FNP), and no you don't have to paint them like PM or even in Nurgle colors. give them a rusted shoulder pad to designated their elite status or something.

you need a bit more anti-horde, so throwing combi-flamers here and there could be an option.

good hunting.

your list is actually over 1500pts some of the points count up is wrong ie the lord w/ daemon weapon

HQ
Chaos Lord – Daemon Weapon
Terminator Armour 145(160)
landraider - he doesnt need a seperate on and you would have to pay full points and it would take a slot up as a lord cant take a dedicated transport

Elites
Chaos Terminators - 4 men
2 Combi-Melta
2 Combi-Plasma
2 Power Fist
Chain Fist 220 (175)
Land Raider - 220 - you still have to pay for the landraider even tho its a dedicated transport

Troops
Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Fist
2 Plasma Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 230
Rhino APC 35 - 265

Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Weapon
2 Melta Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 210
Rhino APC 35 - 245

Chaos Space Marines - 10 Men
Aspiring Champion w/ Power Fist
2 Melta Guns
Icon of Chaos Glory 220
Rhino APC 35 - 255


Heavy Support
Obliterator Cult – 2 Men 150

Landraider - 220

- 1690 this is the actual points

i suggest dropping 1 of the csm squads mainly the 225pts squad and drop the landraider in the HS slot

i suggest something like this

HQ

Chaos Lord
Daemon Weapon
Terminator Armour

Chaos Terminators x 4

Ok. I think you guys misunderstood the Landraider with the lord. That landraider is the same one the termies are in. I really don't like NM so they really arnt an option. One thing I am considering though is swapping the Lord for Abaddon and getting rid of a CSM unit to make points for him and one more termi. I really want to put Abaddon on just because of his overall epicness, and I really do want to paint him. I still want to know what you guys think about him though and whether or not you think I should field him (I' ll probably end up fielding him any way). More modifications will be made to the list once I have that sorted and I'll try to make it clearer. I appreciate all the advice so far guys!
