Hey guys, I'm starting a deathguard army (mixed Chaos just ain't good enough!) and I'd like some pointers about my first list:

HQ

Daemon Prince, Wings, MoN, Wind of Chaos


Elite

4 Terminators, 1 Champion, MoN, Combi-Meltas x5, Powerfist x4, Chainfist
- Landraider, Twin-Linked Bolter


Troops

Plague Marines x6, Champion, Powerfist, Meltagun x2
- Rhino, Combi-Melta

Plague Marines x6, Champion, Powerfist, Meltagun x2
- Rhino, Combi-Melta

Plague Marines x6, Champion, Powerfist, Plasmagun x2
- Rhino, Combi-Melta


Heavy Support

Havocs x5, Lascannon x4

Obliterators x2

Obliterators x2



So, as you can see I took a lot of anti-tank, because my opponent enjoys using a Landraider Crusader, Dreadnoughts, Vindicators, basically plenty of Space Marine mech.

Thanks for your help in advance!
DH

Wow! Thank you very much! Good deeds like this don't go unrewarded! (I don't think you need the extra Rep, but what the heck?)

I think what you have is pretty good. I would drop all the PFs on the termies and take a HF and CF.

I would also drop the combis and TL bolter from your vehicles.

The biggest issue I see with you list is that your Havoc squad cannot take many casualties without losing a weapon. I'd consider getting more ablative wounds for this unit and/or switching out to TL AC.

good hunting.

Thanks! I'm only taking Melta wepons becuse I know my opponent takes lots of vehicles, and I'm expecting 2 Dradnoughts to be present.
