This is basically a second option i decided to come up with to my other 1k just to see what other people thought of it. Granted two of the units seem like easy kill points,but they still have their purposes. I know the DP is better than my sorcerer but he is what i have right now so thats what I am using. He's more for fun than competitive. So here it goes.

sorcerer with plasma pistol and gift (just for the heck of it)

10x CSM
2x meltaguns
Champ w/ powerfist
Rhino

7x plague marines
melta gun
Champ w/ powerfist
Rhino w/ combi melta

3x terminators
3x combi meltas

5x chosen
missile launcher

5x havocs
2x missile launchers
2x autocannons

That comes out to 996. I plan to infiltrate the chosen and use the missile launcher to pop light vehicles and transports not to mention hopefully draw most first turn fire. (praying the aren't smart enough to ignore them.) Stick the sorcerer with the plague marines for survivability and anything that thinks they can get the better of em in close combat will hopefully become a spawn. Rhinos move up as fast as possible to get in that rapid fire range. Havocs protect rear and provide support. Terminators deep strike where they are needed or the get a quick kill on a tank. Let me know what you think.

i would go for a Chaos lord instead of a Sorc if you cant take a DP :D
the three Termies are basicly a complete waste of points
and Non-cult CSMs are boring :D

if you want the Termies so badthen get a squad of KB's (ditch the chosen to tamke up the rest of the points) just make sure he has a PF on the Skullchamp :3
Termies are like overpriced Khorne berserkers that suck in combat :D

I agree with flame on every thing but that termies suck in combat, I'm completly outgunned by a SM army, but I deep striked with 5 termies each with a PF, and they won the game for me!:victory:

ok they dont completely suck in combat i just think they cost to much for what they are (which is tanks (like the role not the Vehical)) when you can get a Khorne Berserkers (BLOOD FOR THE MOTHER FUCKING BLOOD GOD!) for 9 points less :D

EDIT: yay! 300th post :D

I'm with lorgar AND flame.. (the mighty twist)

Lorgar your lucky, No-way should you win a fair 1 v 1 vs some loyalist (wanker) Termies...

but on the other hand, termies don't SUCK at combat, lol. They tend to win vs troops, which makes them useful.

But from a biased point of view.

TAKE KHORNE BERSERKERS.

EDIT:ahh what the heck, 207th post!

Khorne be praised!! :yahoo:

Hail,

Obviously most of us here will favour the Berzerkers over the Terminators debate, I mean, Berzerkers are a troop choice that kills other troops in cc and can handle other cc specialists as well. Terminators are a bit more tricky. Their focus seems more towards cc (power weapons, most icons help cc etc). The temptation to put more points into the termis is there but you will get very little return on that investment. Terminators work best as trouble-shooters. Have a personal Icon on your Berzerkers, then deepstrike the termis on your Berzerkers to help out. 105 points can get you 5 regular Berzerkers,or 3 terminators(1powerfist and icon on Berzerkers).

in the end its really up to you, with Zerkers you will have bigger squads and more attack, but they wont be power weapon atatcks and with Termies you will always have less models and less attacks :3

if you take a Chaos lord dont take MoT and a Deamon weapon if you plan to run him with the Zerkers, take any other mark with a Deamon weapon and youll be fine :3
