he everybody,
i want a nice looking CSM army (who wouldnt) and i thought this list up:

Chaos sorcerer @ 180
Mark of Tzeentch
Warp time
Bolt of change

8 thousand sons @ 254
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt

8 thousand sons @ 324
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt
Chaos rhino
Daemonic possession
Havoc launcher

8 thousand sons @ 324
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt +
Chaos rhino
Daemonic possession
Havoc launcher

8 thousand sons @ 324
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt
Chaos rhino
Daemonic possession
Havoc launcher

Chaos defiler @ 170
Twin linked lascannon

Chaos defiler @ 170
Twin linked lascannon

the idea behind it is that a nurgle sorcerer is needing some protection while he is searching for a book and if the thousand sons help him he will help them. now tzeench has a plan too capitalice on this deal there is a small problem. the preccence of the nurgle sorcerer makes the armour of the thousand sons corroding thats why they had a enchantment placed over them turning there armour green and immume for the corroding preccence of the sorcerer. the two defilers will be modeled as mini titans as big bodyguards.

Tzeentch is gay :D

I'd probably drop a squad of Thousand sons, and replace it with a vindicator or a 3rd defiler, more heavy support in a mech-heavy game goes along way.

Oh and remember a defiler can't fire it's battlecannon AND it's Lascannon in the same turn.

How comes squads of 8. Unless your thinking the aspiring sorc is another model, in which case its not, works in the same way you upgrade champions... So if you did drop a Thousand Son squad, you could make the other squads into 9s ([email protected] making that ****** Tzeentch happy) Another Defiler, and Maybe a chosen squad also.

Try this:

Chaos sorcerer @ 180
Mark of Tzeentch
Warp time
Bolt of change

9 thousand sons @ 277
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt

9 thousand sons @ 342
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt
Chaos rhino
Extra Armour
Havoc launcher

9 thousand sons @ 342
Aspiring champion
Doom bolt +
Chaos rhino
Extra Armour
Havoc launcher

Chaos Chosen @ 140
5x Meltagun

Vindicator @ 145
Daemonic Possession

Vindicator @ 145
Daemonic Possession

Vindicator @ 145
Daemonic Possession

Hows this? :) 1716 Points, so you have 35 to play with. :)

EDIT: You could give your sorceror Wind of Chaos / GoC rather than Warptime :D

ROT's advice/list is solid, I'd go with it.

With the remaining pts mabye take a rhino for Choosen or the footslogging TS, IMO too much upgrades on the other rhinos but it's just my preference, I usually run them naked.

Hope this helps!

Swapped some Psychic Powers around, should be beneficial Because BoC completely owns Doombolt hands down. :D

Good list. Though I recommend you switch the sorcerer for a Daemon Prince. In fact, it seems like you really don't have any units that are really suitable for close combat. I'd take off the chosen unit as they seem a bit random walking around with melta guns hoping to use them before the enemy gets you. So in that regards I'd get another daemon prince. You'll have 340pts if you took out the sorcerer and chosen unit to get a couple well upgraded daemon princes.

thanks for all your help i will pen up another list and post it as soon as i have it.

@ROT i did include the points for the aspiring sorcerer as the entry in the book says that your would have between this and that rubic marines and 1 aspiring sorcerer so i thoughed i had too write the sorcerer sepertly. i rather go with daemonic possession than extra armour its only 5 points more and more effective. i am no fan of vindicators because the club i am in sports 2 loyal space marines and a space wolf player all with 3 vindicators i just feel like who here we go again and i dont want that. and the lascannon is for when i move the defilers or when i lose the battle cannon (which happens alot)

@ckcrawford the reason i have almost no cc units is because of my standaard opponnents. they are tau, space marines, space wolves , imperial guard, eldar and tyranids. and they all go for the quick redeploy plan (exept the tyranids) so if i walk towards them i get shot down they move around and it starts all over. i have learned with my space wolfs, ork and eldar army's that just a straight up shoot out works better for me. and i am no fan of choosen either and i feel it doent fitt my story why would you send 2 daemon princes out on body guard duty?

i failed too mantion this army will eventually be combined with my nurgle army thats lead by my deamon prince. and later when i have the money for it i will let a titan join the party for apocalypse battles.

Ok Pink :) In that case take off 69 points from the 3 troops. drop the vindicators.

You have 504 points for Heavy Supports, which you could have a combination of;

Predator Tank - Lascannon, Las-Sponsoons - 165
Predator Tank - Lascannon, Las-Sponsoons - 165
2x Obliterator - 150

OR

2x Obliterator
2x Obliterator
Land raider - Daemonic possession (if you drop a Rhino; EA, You have the points)

There are countless other combinations :) Take your pick! :D
