My roommate decided that, since we both have two fairly sizable armies, he wants to play one massive game where we both use both of them. I'm using my Daemons and Chaos Marines, while he's using his Eldar and Tyranids. (We decided to skip the part where we try to explain why the Eldar and the Tyranids would team up against Chaos.) It's going to be a 6000 point game, each army using it's own FOC but the points don't need to be evenly split between the two armies as long as they fit the chart. This is going to be a straight up kill-the-other-guy game--he really doesn't want to try to hold objectives against Plaguebearers and Plague Marines, lol.

Here's what I was thinking about going with. I believe it came to 2975 Daemons and 3025 Chaos Marines.

I know some of the units I've taken aren't that fantastic, but keep in mind a lot of those choices were made simply because I have the models, and with a game this big I'll be putting almost everything I own on the table, so keep that in mind.


DAEMONS

HQ:
-Bloodthirster (Unholy Might, Death Strike, Blessing of the Blood God)
-Great Unclean One (Aura of Decay, Breath of Chaos, Cloud of Flies, Unholy Might)

Elites:
-Flamers x6
-Flamers x6
-Fiends x6

Troops:
-Pink Horrors x 20 (Icon, Bolt of Tzeentch, Changeling)
-Bloodletters x 20 (Icon, Fury of Khorne)
-Plaguebeaers x 20 (Icon, Noxious Touch)
-Daemonettes x 20 (Icon)

Heavy Support:
-Soul Grinder (Tongue, Phlegm)
-Daemon Prince (Daemonic Flight, Unholy Might, Iron Hide, Breath of Chaos, Mark of Nurgle, Cloud of Flies, Noxious Touch, Aura of Decay)


CHAOS MARINES

HQ:
-Daemon Prince (Wings, Mark of Slaanesh, Lash of Submission)
-Daemon Prince (Wings, Mark of Slaanesh, Lash of Submission)

Elites:
-Terminators x 5 (Chainfists x5, Combi-flamers x4, Heavy Flamer, Icon of Nurgle) [God I wish I owned a Land Raider]
-Chosen x 5 (Missile Launcher, Combi-meltas x4, Icon of Tzeentch)
-Possessed x 20 (Icon of Khorne, Rhino [Daemonic Possession, Havoc Launcher]) [Possessed would not be deployed inside the rhino obviously, it's basically just there to have another vehicle on the table]

Troops:
-Noise Marines x 10 (Sonic Blasters x9, Blastmaster, Champion, Doom Siren, Personal Icon, Rhino [Daemonic Possession, Havoc Launcher])
-Plague Marines x 10 (Icon, Meltagun x1, Flamer x1, Rhino [Daemonic Possession, Havoc Launcher])
-Plague Marines x 10 (Icon, Meltagun x1, Flamer x1, Rhino [Daemonic Possession, Havoc Launcher])
-Plague Marines x 10 (Icon, Meltagun x1, Flamer x1, Rhino [Daemonic Possession, Havoc Launcher])

Heavy Support:
-Obliterators x 3
-Defiler (Close Combat Weapons x2)
-Defiler (Close Combat Weapons x2)



I'm not sure if this ever becomes a debate, but we've ruled that Icons work the same for both armies, so Daemons can come in without scattering around Chaos Marine Icons, etc. To this end, I was planning to Infiltrate the tiny unit of Chosen as far up as I could hidden inside a building of some kind, then have my shooty or slow Daemons show up around it, while the others appear behind the Marine troops, using a wall of foot-slogging Possessed as cover. The Possessed are pretty much just there to draw fire, as he always assumes that they're as scary as they used to be--and if he doesn't shoot them down then, hey, they're still Khorne Possessed, they'll still do some damage.

So, what do you guys think? Keep in mind, this is MOST of what I own. I think the only things I have that aren't on the table in these lists is 20 Pink Horrors, 6 broken-to-pieces Screamers, 10 Bloodletters and one more Bloodthirster.
