I just come back from a short holiday right, and in the car journey home (Which was 6 hours long may i add:headbutt:) I had my codex, and i thought i'd try and come up with something that was... DIFFERENT.

::NOTE:: I left my codex in the back of my mates car when he dropped me home, trying to remember all the item points' values from memory! :ireful2:

Troops

10 CSM - 170
Icon of Khorne, 2 meltas

10 CSM - 170
Icon of Slaanesh, 2 meltas

7 Plague Marines - 208
Champion with PowerFist

7 Plague Marines - 208
Champion with PowerFist

4 Dedicated Rhinos with EA - 200

OK, Now the Fun Part

HQ

Chaos Lord - 155
Terminator Armour, MoK, Daemon Weapon

Chaos Lord - 165
Jump Pack, Twin-Linked Bolter, MoS, Daemon Weapon

I Don't see any Blissgiver Daemon Weapons, I've never used myself either, but frankly it looks decent... The whole... Instant Death on a Wound, is quite good really. Opinions?

Elites

10 Chaos Terminators - 550
5 Aspiring Champions, 2 Reaper AutoCannons, 6 PowerFists, 3 ChainFists, 1 Pair of LC's, Icon of Khorne
:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:


8 Raptors - 245
2 melta, 1 Champion with LC's, Icon of Slaanesh

Heavy Support

3 Obliterators - 225

3 Obliterators - 225

3 Obliterators - 225
Total - 2746

Can't for the life of me think what else i had in there, i remember it equalling 3016.


My Theory is....

Start with nothing on the board, besides the 4 Rhino's in a Square

and run this straight to the enemy, directly, when destroyed the Plague Marines Become a hench wall of Nurgle giving the icon bearing CSM's a chance of a cover save from the attacks coming on.

Phase 2: Deep Strike the 9 Obliterators in, no scatter because of the Icon's on the Squads, Lascannons -> attempt to punch a hole in something. And with 9 Lascannon's, I'd be fucking annoyed if i didnt punch a hole in something, to the point where I would punch a hole in something.

Phase 3: Move the wall of marines and Oblits into the enemy, hopefully nearing the destination, and Deep strike everything else right into the heat, and fuck shit up.:taunt:

Anyone? :):alcoholic::scratchhead:

You missed 30 points for this unit :)

10 CSM - 190

I would give these guys some melta love as well

This guy definitely works

Looks good

I've used a Blissgiver lord before, with some great success. Also, just keep in mind red text is reserved for mods only

10 Chaos Terminators - 550
5 Aspiring Champions, 2 Reaper AutoCannons, 6 PowerFists, 3 ChainFists, 1 Pair of LC's, Icon of Khorne

So this unit is obviously a beast. But I would, personally, drop 3 PF's and a chainfist, and add 4 more sets of LC's. Also, I think you'r plan would work a bit more if you split this unit into one group of 5, and the other into a group of 4 (with the Lord), and throw in 2 LR's. Punch up the board with 4 rhino's and 2 LR's and suddenly the other guy has a bit of a problem

Everything else is fine. I would just check over the point costs once you get your 'dex back though

Looks good :victory:

Would it work is the biggest thing, I'm sorta Half n' Half on whether it would just get flattened in reality, think i have it too surrealy planned out :p Underestimating the size of the board and what not.

And i'll change that red right away :p Blue looks nicer anyway.

The bastards arent giving me my codex back for a short while, gunna be a few weeks without it :((

I believe thats what i said :) Mods only. Or are mods different from admins? :dunno:

As for the list, as long as you make sure to add special's to the Plague Marines, and change the Terminators it should work fine

ok, looks good, Termis in landraiders is always an idea...

personally i'd be running 1 squad of 4 with lightning claws in with the lord of khorne.
the second squad could be combimelta/chainfisted up. this gives you 2 rather nasty role specific units... i'm not a fan of DS but i can see the appeal.

slaneshi marines need a power weapon, maybe even make them emperors children, give a squad of 10 blastmaster, 9 sonic blasters, a power weapon and doom siren. stuff them in a rhino.

2 csm squads with fist dual melta... both fine.
however the khorne squad might aswell be berzerkers....

plague marines NEED melta!!

Oblits.. more than fine.
consider only DS 2 squads and leaving a squad on the board to give the enemy something to worry about other than boatloads of transports hammering up the field at him... personnaly i'd be starting the game with all 3 or at least 2 on the field. lascannons have a good enough range but are crap in orbit!

raptors are good. i give mine a power fist and an icon of khorne.... that way you get a sure fire kill on that tank your dropping in next to (also matches the sacred number)

slaneshi lord?? hmmmmm now that makes your jump troope really interesting... swap out melta for flamers and ignore my last comment!!
