i think you need a squad of havocs for swarm armies.
wow, those oblits cost a lot...i think you should remove one of them
also, with your hq, i think its best to have only one "lord" type model, so probably you should have used to lords points else where, and let your daemon prince command you army
good job though

You are spending a lot of points on upgrades. I would strip a lot of them out and see if I could get another unit.

I'd also probably lose the chaos lord.

With that you should be able to get another unit or two, maybe not fully tooled up plague marines though.

the plauge marines are a standard for me because thats my army theme death guard, they cost heaps but personly i cant get enough of them, the obliterators cost a fortune so ill drop one and downgrade the predator and lose the lord though what to get instead is a bit difficult, more plauge marines would be good, thoughts?

main problems i can see with your army mate is its too elite, i recently played a 1750 pt battle against an IG/BA army and i used totally basic units relying on quality in numbers to win the day, and it did, i wiped him out in 4 turns and i hadnt lost above 500 pts, pure codex chaos quality is enough in my opinion, so hopefully i wont offend you by commenting on your list, hope i am helpful and wont seem like a know it all, as believe me i'm not tactically talented in the Least :grin::grin:

i have to say i'd get rid of this lord dude, this 150 cud be spent better elsewhere
Daemon prince, mark of nurgle, 130pts
wicked, i am a major dp fan and this is a must have

Elites
4x terminator, 3x twin lightning claws, icon of nurgle, reaper auto cannon, chainfist, 240pts
my self i think that is ruinously expensive, for this i'd just take 8 standard terminators, and obviously deep strike them when available

Troops
7x plague marine, 2x plasma guns, champion, power fist, 231pts
7x plague marine, 2x plasma guns, champion, power fist, 231pts
7x plague marine, 2x plasma guns, champion, power fist, 231pts
although these are expensive i love these 3 squads, u canget more for your money, like 46 standard marines, but keep em, its the core of your army

Heavy support
Defiler, reaper auto cannon, extra close combat weapon, 150pts
i really hate defilers, although i know theyre good i just hate em, so 4get this particular comment
Predator, twin linked lascannon, heavy bolters, havoc launcher, D possession, 170pts,
love ur pred, cool, mix n match fire power, 1 with 3 lascannons wud be cool, then an autocannon hvy bolter wud be amazing

3x obliterators, 225pts
take an extra pred and use the spare point to but some more marines




anyways thats probably all wrong but thats how i'd work things


hope this helped:grin:
