Hey all.

Just getting involved with an Escalation League, and looking for thoughts on this 750 point lists.
My collection is very limited at this point, but suggestions are welcome.

HQ

Daemon Prince. – 330
DoT, Wings, Armor, Psyker x2 (Not sure on the powers), Black Mace, and a Spell familiar.

Troops

Cultists (10 Man) – 55
Heavy flamer

Chaos Space Marine Squad. (7 man) -205
CCWs, Melta Gun, Power Weapon (Sword), Combi-Flamer (on AC),
Rhino+Havoc, Combi-Flamer.

Heavy Support

Predator – 100
Lascannon Turret


Fortifications.

Aegis Defence Lines – 100
Quad-Gun

this imo, is a big no-no. you are investing half your army in a T5 model...not a good idea. For the same points you could get a sorceror on bike with MoN and an escort of 4 nurgle bikers with meltaguns...T6, psionic powers, psionic weapon for instakill goodness, speed, meltaweapons..and cheaper if i'm right with calculations

Troops

Cultists (10 Man) – 55
Heavy flamer

Chaos Space Marine Squad. (7 man) -205
CCWs, Melta Gun, Power Weapon (Sword), Combi-Flamer (on AC),
Rhino+Havoc, Combi-Flamer.
here, again, i feel you are over equipping :) rhino will die and quickly. do not waste points in weapons. with the spared prince points and this 22 pts from weapon upgrades you can probably bring the squad to 10, with a powersword and 2 meltaguns. Focused, bigger, multirole unit

Heavy Support

Predator – 100
Lascannon Turret

when i field this type of predator is always in conjunction with something else. alone, it is lacking in stopping power. With the changes i suggested above you should well armed with melta to face any vehicle. This tank can become a dakka factory. Autocannon, heavy bolter sponson. more dakka, less points.


Fortifications.

Aegis Defence Lines – 100
Quad-Gun
I'm not sold on this, at 750 pts. if you expect many flyiers, go ahead. otherwise, for the 5 points more (that you just spared thanks to the predator above) you could have 3 terminators with combiplasma, for deepstriking love.
So my suggested list, after variations, is:

Chaos Sorceror (any nurgle power will help you in the assault role he has)
MoN
Sigils of corruption
Psionic Axe (+1 str, Vp2,possible instadeath...mmh...)
Bike
(120)

4 Bikers
MoN
2 meltaguns
(144)

10 Cultists
flamer
(55)

10 Chaos Marines
2 meltaguns
power sword + bolter pistol champion
all unit with bolters
Rhino
(210)

Predator
heavy bolter sponsons
Havoc launcher
(107)

3 Chaos Terminators
3 combiplasma
(112)

TOTAL= 748

I get the idea on replacing the DP. It is allot of points, but it is my only fully painted HQ, and as fielding a Fully Painted Army will net me as many points as a win in the League... Given that others are struggling against the same issues (One of my opponents list only has 5 models in it!).

But I see your point, going to take out some options from the DP. Make him cheaper and less of a risk. I had thought about dropping the DP for a lord on foot, but I have no unit to run him with.

10 Cultists
flamer
(55)

10 Chaos Marines
2 meltaguns
power sword + bolter pistol champion
all unit with bolters
Rhino
(210)
I like the idea of the 10 man squad. By stripping down the DP, I have been able to increase the squad sized to 9. I know that leaves me short of the second meltagun, but I don’t own a second one! (May I see about kit-bashing one before this afternoon)

Predator
heavy bolter sponsons
Havoc launcher
(107)

3 Chaos Terminators
3 combiplasma
(112)

TOTAL= 748
Now I would love to run with this, but I don’t have this at the moment. My Predator is set with Twinlinked Lascannons, (with Lascannon Sponsons). I had a fair amount of success in the last edition with this tank; yes it’s only a small amount of firepower, but it helps open-up opportunities.

The Defense line is part of my plan for the games. It provides me with a 4+ cover save I had place for my benefit and the auto-cannon should provide a bit of long-range firepower to the Cultists.

Thanks for the advice.

At the moment the list above has about the full gambit of my painted troops!

This is the list I am going to use... I can re-write totally in feb when we move to 1250pts. Will post with my List for that in a day or two, so I can put together a better list for next month. (as it gives me time to paint and convert)

=HQ =

Daemon Prince.(Tridon the Sinister ) – 270
DoT, Wings, Armor, Black Mace, Icor Blood

Troops

Cultists (10 Man) – 55
Heavy flamer

Chaos Space Marine Squad. (9 man) -225
CCWs, Melta Gun, Power Weapon (Sword), Combi-Flamer (on AC),
Rhino+Havoc

Heavy Support .

Predator – 100
Lascannon Turret
