Greetings:

This is my first post here, i got a some Chaos Space Marines from a friend as a gift, and started painting, and in no time, i started to buy miniatures, but due lack of time, i haven´t played a lot (Only Kill Teams like games with low points).

I have:

-Typhus
-Chaos terminator lord with lighting claws
-Daemon prince with wings
-2X Chaos space marines
-10 Berserkers w/champ (Power fist)
-14 Plague marines
-10 Terminators (1 Reaper, 1 Powerfist, 1 mace)
-2 Rhinos
-1 Predator W/laser turrets
-5 Raptors/Warp Talons (Not sure yet)

Reading the rules and codex, im starting to have a idea of the gameplay, but i lack real experience,and the minis are hard to get around here, so im having troubles assembling the minis (Fearing to "screw" one and waiting some time to get more)

I have all the sprues for weapons and icons, etc.

Dont know if this is the right section for this (I dont see a introduction-like post), if not, sorry.

If you can get ahold of a Heldrake you can make some fairly competitive lists with what you have now. Are you asking for help building a list with what you have or what minis to get next or both?

Im planning to get Heldrakes but it will take some time (We make a big order via the store, and takes around a month to get here). So i would like a list with what i have for now.

Thanks for the answer.

Mossy toes has a fairly solid writeup of csm in the tactics forum. Might want to read it. It will give yah idea of what flavor of csm you might prefer.

Aww shucks, thanks for the plug, scscofield.

I prefer Raptors to Warp Talons since they're so much cheaper and can bring special weapons (yay, meltas!) to the fray, while still being able to turn out quite a few attacks on the charge (Hammer of Wrath, charge bonus, the possibility of MoK, melee weapon + pistol, plus base attack).

I would use the Berzerkers as regular CSM with the Mark of Khorne, really. Cheaper and can take special weapons vs the counter-balance of Fearless and WS5--worth it, I say.
