Having seen some of the other lists posted here, as well as been lamenting the fact that the other CSM player at my local GW is defecting to the Blood Angels, I've decided to see if I can come up with a decent list that uses ordinary Chaos Marines.

Chaos Lord, Mark of Khorne, Powerfist & Plasma Pistol - 140 points.

10 Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Chaos Glory, Lascannon, Plasma Gun, Champion with Powerfist, Rhino - 270 points.

10 Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Khorne, 2 Meltaguns, Champion with Powerfist, Rhino - 275 points.

10 Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Khorne, 2 Meltaguns, Champion with Powerfist, Rhino - 275 points.

6 Chosen Chaos Space Marines, Icon of Slaneesh, 4 sets of Lightning Claws, Rhino - 243 points.

Vindicator with Daemonic Possession - 145 points.

Vindicator with Daemonic Posession - 145 points.

(note changed list based on comments below.)

Essentially the IoCG squad hangs back on rear objectives and provides fire support, with the Vindicators covering the flanks. The Khorne Lord rides with the chosen, who along with the Khorne Marines launch an assault, aiming to get the charge over their enemies.

What I'm looking for is for people to suggest ways to make this list better whilst using just ordinary Chaos Marines (including bikers and the like in that category). You see the guy I mentioned above is a Night Lords player who's been using them since at least third edition and I'm kinda sad that he feels he has to use the Blood Angels codex to be successful, hence the idea.

Your vindis definitely need daemonic possession. Their sole purpose is to shoot and DP enables them to do this every turn, unless they blow up but there's not much to do about that anyway. Also, I'd drop the lascannon and plasma from the CSM squad since the plasma's a bit risky on non-plague marines and the lascannon really makes the rest of the squad sit there and watch while you fire one shot every turn across the board.

interesting set up with the Chosen, certainly deserves commendation for trying something different. the only thing i don't like about the list is the Chaos Lord: he's got wargear that screams kill me. and IC should not go last in melee, and i'm not keen on the plasma pistol.

beyond that, nice list.

good hunting.

I would drop the wargear on the lord and the mark. just give him a regular deamon weapon. He can hang out with a regular squad and do a lot of damage himself. considering he is already i5 and pretty nice weapon skill with the extra strength and attack make him a troop killer. But like deux said get DP on the vindies they need to shoot at something everyturn. Consider dropping the chosen down to 5 and trying to get it for at least one of them
