I'm going to be playing a casual tournament with a bunch of friends tomorrow. I was going to bring a fairly standard Zerk based list but have decided that taking a list like that would be lame. So, I'd like some feedback on two lists that are deviations from my standard list which is chilling toward the bottom.

AWESOME LIST #1:

Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoT, Warptime, Bolt of Change
Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoS, LoS

Summoned Greater Daemon

3x Termies w/ Champ, 1x CF, 1x HF, 2x Combi-Melta, IoS

5x Plague Marines w/ Champ, 2x Plasma, Rhino, PI
5x Plague Marines w/ Champ, 2x Plasma, Rhino, PI
5x Plague Marines w/ Champ, 2x Plasma, Rhino, PI

2x Oblits
2x Oblits
-------------
1500 Points

Obviously, the point of this list to to provide a solid core (Oblits + PM) while using the Termies to suicide tanks and the three MCs to beat face

AWESOME LIST #2:

Daemon Prince w/ Wings, WT, MoN
Sorcerer w/ T.Armor, MoS, LoS

9x Termies w/ (9)Champs, 3x PF, 2x CH, 3x Combi-Plas, 4x Combi-Melta, 2x HF, IoT

Chosen w/ 2x Melta, 2x Flamer, IoCG
Chosen w/ 2x Melta, 2x Flamer, IoCG

6x CSM w/ 1x Melta, Rhino, IoCG
5x CSM w/ 1x Melta, Rhino, IoCG

Oblit
Oblit
--------------
1500

I think this one is fairly self-explanatory as well. Use the icons to Deep Strike 9 Termies and the Sorcerer while harassing with the DP.

Meh, Standard LIST #1:

Daemon Prince w/ Wings, Warptime, MoN
Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoS, LoS

8x Zerks w/ Champ, PF, Rhino
8x Zerks w/ Champ, PF, Rhino
7x Plague Marines w/ Champ, PF, 2x Plasma, Rhino

2x Oblits
Vindi w/ DP
Vindi w/ DP

This is a standard list I play.

I'm not looking for most competitive, rather, most fun/biggest challenge.

i'd take a modified list # two. i HATE MSU style. so what i'd do is drop the prince, and the chosen, add to your CSM units, get another unit if possible and then add to the oblits.

10 tzeentched terminators is hellasious enough, and since your playing with friends I'd assume you want them to still be friends in the morning lol!
MSU style?

The only reason I had the Princes in the list is to stall until my Termies land. Same with Chosen...I'm hoping that high(ish) threat units up front may help the rest of my army get there.

So, tourney didn't happen but I did get to play three games, all of which I won.

I played with List #1 against Necron, Daemons and CSM. Phased Necron out, tabled Daemons and beat CSM in kill points.

Turns out list #1 was pretty effective.

However, I am VERY, VERY, VERY, surprised you won with List #1, But don't necessarily take that as it being a good list.

Your probably just a very competent general.
Really? I found the Lash Prince, Tzeentch Prince to be an excellent combo and I did have 6 Plasma guns and 2 TL Plasma guns/2 Plasma cannons. I do agree though, when I looked at it the first time I was skeptical. If you get a chance, would you test it? I'd love to hear your thoughts on how it plays.

Well thanks. :p I try.

The thing is, if you're going to title a list 'And Now For Something Completely Different' then you have to have a Chaos Marine modelled as John Cleese sitting behind a newdesk :biggrin:
Done. I'm doing it.
