Plague Marines are your go-to Troops pick. 5-7 in Rhinos with 2 meltas and a PF work fine.

More Oblits is always better.

Daemons are a good tarpit and cheap objective holder, but don't expect much more.

Lash is overrated, T5 DPs are very vulnerable and mech ignores Lash altogether. 2 Warp Timing Nurgle DPs would do you better.

Nah, bad players and newbies just run screaming from it. T5 Princes FTL.

It's more a limitation of the Chaos Codex than anything. They just don't have the capacity to deal with lots of mech at range. Oblits are your best bet and even then they can only possibly knock out 3 targets per turn. If you're not using Oblits or using them on the Lash trick (cluster up then plasma) then mech just rolls you.

Fun gimmick, good against bad players and armies, but still a gimmick.

The melta only gets to DoG if you drive over it, so just don't. The odds of something silly like a krak grenade stopping you are about as good as failing Ld10 psychic tests.

What makes tank shocking superior is that you don't have to waste an HQ slot on a T5 3 wound MC in order to do it, it's just a natural advantage of having a mech army, which is good enough on its own.
