Small comp coming up n it's a 600pts no restrictions
This is what I'm thinking of going with.
Weapons can easily be changed on models

Lord-bike, aura of dark glory, power fist, MoT,

5 CSM, plasma gun, melta bomb
5 CSM, plasma gun, melta bomb

3 bikers, MoT, plasma gun, melta bomb

Heldrake (not decided on weapon yet)

599 points on the nose

So yeah it's small points I always find this hard, and I don't ever play this small it's a real challenge. But the ideas pretty obvious hit fast and hard with Lord and bikes, use CSMs for shooty, and heldrake for F*#KING SH*T up.
Any ideas and critique very welcome
Cheers

The Drake could land you in the poo poo if it doesn't come on in time.
Lose the mot on the bikes and get 2 melta
How about swap one sq of csm for 20 man cultist blob with 2 flamers for lord escort . Use the Drake as a hell blade then the 70 odd points left over could give you an obliterater or upgrades.

Hmm. You'll have trouble against Wraiths. Or a Wraithknight. Or a Knight (very possible if the person goes for an Inquisition primary detachment--they'd have ~200 points to spare, even!), aside from a meltabomb Hail Mary. It's too hard to plan for those possibilities with so few points, you know?

What would I take? Well, I'd take Daemons, honestly, and grab Be'lakor, 2 Nurgling squads, and 13 Seekers, but...

Ahem! Mobility! I approve! I'd probably take 2 Cultist squads and then use the freed-up 90 for another Biker squad with 2 melta.

And don't take MoT on bikers! They don't need a 6+ invuln--they can jink for a 4+ cover! Get a second plasma on them, instead!

I'd go with the Baledrake, relying on Vector Strikes for any enemy flyer you face at 600 points. That Baleflamer will be too useful against any MEq opponents.

I'd rather take a SoC on the bike-lord, so as to save 5 points from the AoDG+MoT combo. Use those 5 points to get another meltabomb on the new bike squad I recommended.

Thanks for the input guys
I'm wanting the fast mobility of the bike n I love the idea of 2 units of bikes
I've got cultists but there DV so load out is stuck
So after seeing the advice this is it ?
Lord, bike, power sword, melta bomb
3 bikes, 2 plasma gun, melta bomb
3 bikes, 2 melta gun
10 cultists, auto pistols, flamer
10 cultists, auto guns, stubber
Heldrake, baleflamer
589 pts so dunno if things still need moving to use up spare points
Lord to ride with melta bikes
Looks good to me
????????

your list seems good to me.
but, honestly, i'd go:

Lord, bike, sigils, power maul, meltabombs (130)

4 Spawns (120)

10 cultists
10 cultists
(100)

Maulerfiend
Maulerfiend
(250)

At this point level, any reserve roll cancost you the game, so i'd skip those entirely. Maulerfiends are going to be a pain, unless you face a truly chees-some opponent. Spawns over bikers due to thrice the wounds...power maul since you are going to face lots of invulnerable saves: might as well wound on 2+ ! also, vs light vehicles, it will work good.
Still a silly list mind you.
Anyhow, can you go unbound? 'Cause if you can...

Yeah unbound is allowed seriously I'm crap at deciding at very low costs !
I run word bearers and love the possessed with CS codex but I will be buying in any minis I need extra for the comp, but I'm really liking the idea of bikes would it be worth swapping out the heldrake for forgefiend ?

Lord, bike, power sword, melta bomb
3 bikes, 2 plasma gun, melta bomb
3 bikes, 2 melta gun, melta bomb
10 cultists, auto pistols, flamer
10 cultists, auto guns, stubber
Forgefiend ectoplasma
599

Havent got my books with me so cant total up the pts on this.

Could go for a 5 man Havok Squad with 4 Autocannons.
5 Man CSM squad with Autocannon or Heavy Bolter (havent got my book with me so cant tell if you can take that with 5 or if you need 10), i think if they cant Chosen can.
Shove them in a Bastion with all 4 heavy bolters facing the direction of choice and if you want throw an icarus or quad gun on top what can either be used by the champ of the CSM or Havoks as an additional shot.
Then plop a 2-3 shield Void Shield Generator next to it to give it a shield bubble to stop them blowing it up before you can gun them down.
Only real prob would be AV14 with the number of shots you could level at your enemy with autocannons and stuff.

Works a bit better with a squad of Bloodletters in the Bastion though as they are BS5 and only cost 100pts for the 10 of them and they have power weapons as well incase someone assaults in to the building.

Another fun one is always the Daemon Prince with 2 Vengence Weapon Batteries next to him. You can either have the 2X20shot gatling thing or 2 high BS battlecannons and he can fire them both :p Though a nasty pieplate for a demo cannon can eat all 3 at once.

I thought you couldnt fire from Vengence Weapon Batteries? But if you can.. that's a great plan
