I have run a similar list with friends for fun and it always does well, local 1750 tournament coming up please tell me what you think.

1 Demon Prince w/ lash and M.O.S.

3 Oblits

10 CSM +2 flamer Icon CG
+Rhinon w/ extra armor

10 Brezerkers with Champ +Pwr Wpn + Melta + Icon
+Land raider with Dmn Poss.

5 Termies w/ pwr fists +M.O.Khorn. +5 combi

5 Bikes +2 melta + Icon CG

5 Lesser demon


I like this list have always had luck with lesser demons for last minute objective sniping, only thing im unsure about is termies. Dont know if i should put something else in, while these guys can dish out some pain its a lot of points. This is built WYSIWYG for a tourney, so i can modify a lot of stuff with what i have but not everything.

For the sake of everyone else; and me being OCD about Neat lists; Heres your list laid out neater.

HQ-
Daemon Prince - 135
MoS, Lash of Submission


ELITES-
•(5) Terminators - 255
MoK, 5 Powerfists, 5 Combi-weapons


TROOPS-
•(10) Chaos Space Marines - 220
2 Flamers, IoCG
Rhino with Extra Armour


•(10) Khorne Berzerkers - 250
Skull Champion with Power Weapon, Meltabombs, Personal Icon

•(5) Lesser demons - 65


FAST ATTACK-
•(5) Chaos Bikers - 195
IoCG, 2 Meltaguns


HEAVY SUPPORT
•(3) Obliterators - 225

Land Raider - 240
Daemonic Possession

Total- 1585

Ok, now that my OCD is content, I can start;

You have nearly 200 points left over, so if you've played that list alot, then you've been at a huge disadvantage;

But in terms of the list; Drop the 'Zerkers down to a Squad of 8, I'd proberbly loose the lesser daemons, In truth they don't really help so much, from what i've seen.

You don't really have alot of Anti-tank, And the Lash Prince is kinda out of place, Nothing to really use Lash to it's fullest with (i.e. Noise Marines, Vindicators, Defilers; Plate droppers, In other words.)

See what others think, That's just my 2c.

Good Warring :wild:

Needs Wings. Consider a 2nd.

3 Oblits
Good. With Lash, the more the better. Consider adding an extra couple in.

10 CSM +2 flamer Icon CG
+Rhinon w/ extra armor
Id go with Melta for these guys, plus a Champ with a Power Fist.

10 Brezerkers with Champ +Pwr Wpn + Melta + Icon
+Land raider with Dmn Poss.
Give the Champ a Power Fist. Last thing you want is this unit getting stuck in combat with a Walker or high toughness MC. Drop the Icon and the Melta.

5 Termies w/ pwr fists +M.O.Khorn. +5 combi
Id put some pairs of Lightning Claws in this unit so you have something striking at I4. Perhaps something like 3 with pairs of Lightning Claws, and 2 with Power Fists and Combi-Meltas.

5 Bikes +2 melta + Icon CG
Not really a fan of bikes. Cant really set them up any better than what you have though. Some people like the MoN on them, but its debatable.

5 Lesser demon
Id drop them.
My advise is above.

Oh, and you really need a 3rd troop choice in there, if not a 4th.
Use your leftover points to get yourself a 3rd.

EDIT: I should proberbly note that when it comes to list writing, adding an appropriate troop choice into the mix i struggle with... When writing my own lists, i tend to just use lots of the same troops, y'know. :] Lots of 'Zerkers. X)

Sorry for the sloppy list write up. The last 150 pts were a defiler with 2 C.C. weapons. I love Termies with lightning claws but just a matter of getting the models was trying to be WYSIWYG for tournaments. Thanks for all the other advice. I have had good luck with the lesser demons they have won me a few games with poping them out last turn via icons and capturing/contesting objectives. If i was to throw in a fourth troop choice any advice what i should take out. Also is there a reason that everyone always recommends 8 Brezerkers as opposed to the full 10??

Oh that lists looks much better Cheese, I wanted to put Termies in his Raider, but didn't wanna trust a Rhino with 10 'Zerkers, didn't cross my mind to put them back into an 8.

8 is the Number of Khorne... And they are proberbly more Cost effective that way... Remember you don't necessarily want to clear out everything in one assault, tactically theres more chance of not killing everything you assault, meaning you win combat in your Opponents turn, so you cant be shot at in their phase, or assaulted; and can move on the turn after - That's your ideal situation, 10 'zerkers is 50 Attacks on the charge, which does alot more damage than 40 Attacks, which goes without saying.

Squads of 10 'Zerkers is Over-kill, and however Khorne-like that is, It's a tactical problem.

Wait... What? :nono:

Dude, im pretty sure Zerkers only get 4 attacks each on the charge, not 5.
The bonus attack for the Mark of Khorne is included in their profile.
1 + Mok + 2CCW + Charge = 4 :grin:

ditto, they do not have 5 attacks on the charge with zerkers. Only terminator champions get 5 attacks with MoK and pair lightning claws. 6 on the charge, god they rape. i used to run terminator Champion with pair lightning claws and MoS with abbadon in a landraider. i took it out when i played a dark eldar player

I was always told that it was 1 + MoK + 2 for it's CC weapons then + 1 charge....

I'm pretty sure i read in the rules it gets and extra 2 for 2 CC weapons.

Nope 8 zerkers on the charge get 28 for the squad and either and extra 4 or 5 for champ depending wether he has a PF or PW! I like cheese's list but I'd drop the PM's down to 7 and give them plasma guns rather than meltas!

EDIT: Spoke to my mate, and i was playing 4 on the charge after-all. He said he knows very well that it's 4, and wouldn't have let me do 5, so i guess i was doing it right all along...

I dunno where i got 5 from, must've been a mind-blank :p
