with the Plague Bearer's, i was thinking that they could be summoned by the PM Squad in case some thing nasty comes there way and could be used as a meat shield to hold up the unit etc?

to be honest, i have never used a defiler, so i am not sure how reliable they can be? are they worth taking?

With the Melta armed Chosen, i don't have a codex at hand, would they have enough points for a rhino?

and another thing :biggrin: i heard that a 'termicide' unit can be quite useful, the thing is if i had to choose between the two, if there enough points for the chosen to have a Rhino, i'll get them instead :p

Okaaaay, here is a revision and taken into account from the fantastic advice given by you all, well here goes nothing :grin::

HQ:

Daemon Prince, MON, Wings, Warptime: 175 pts
Daemon Prince, MON, Wings, Warptime: 175 pts

ELITE'S:
(Termicide)
3 PT's, 3 Combi Melta's (not sure on point count)

TROOP'S:

7 PM's, 2 Melta Guns , PI, PF, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM's, 2 Melta Guns , PI, PF, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM's, 2 Flamers, PI, PF, Rhino = 246 pts
7 Plague Bearer's = 91 pts
7 Plague Bearer's = 91 pts

HEAVY SUPPORT:

2 Obilterator's = 150 pts
2 Obilterator's = 150 pts

That hopefully should be 2000 points-ish, again any criticisms/advice/praise:laugh:
would be greatly appreciated.

Peace out.

thanks for pointing that out, i am still in the process of buying and building Month by Month :) i think i will drop to a squad of 3 Oblit's, and give the termi's a PF and MON perhaps?

Here we go again, 3rd time lucky me think? (plus i have 195 points to spare)

HQ:

Daemon Prince, MON, Wings, Warptime = 175 pts
Daemon Prince, MON, Wings, Warptime = 175 pts

TROOPS:

7 PM's, 2 Meltas, PI, PF, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM's, 2 Meltas, PI, PF, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM's, 2 Flamers, PF, Rhino = 246 pts
7 Plague Bearer's = 91 pts
7 Plague Bearer's = 91 pts

HEAVY SUPPORT:

3 Obilterator's = 225 pts
Vindicator + Daemonic Possession = 145 pts
Vindicator + Daemonic Possession = 145 pts

as you can see i haven't put in an elite's slot, and with 195 points to spare, what you guys suggest? ( i am open to suggestions) but i kinda like the whole Nurgley feel so maybe some Plague Terminators perhaps? (that's if i have enough points, and no codex yet)

Nothing says 'i love you' like having 4 flamers up your ass burning you to death :grin:
sounds like a good idea, what about if they were a CC unit of Tank Hunter's? would i still have enough points?

That sounds like a pretty cool idea, especially with being able to shoot 2 melta's out from the Rhino (does it count as aopen topped when you do that btw?) and if i add that unit in my current revised list, it seems like i am lacking some CC no?

or perhaps would it be better for 4 PW's and 1 PF instead?

Yeah, the Melta armed Chosen With MON on foot sounds pretty cool, i am sure i can put that to good use :spiteful:
would i have enough points from 195? if not i can reduce the PB squads by one to make them two six man squads?

then i am thinking, am i actually lacking any CC Units in my Army list? i mean i know PM's are CQ Firefight specialists, and sure I have the 2 Zippy flying Nurgle DP's Zooming round chopping shit up, but do i need CC Specialists?

*sorry Rhok, i missed your post just as i edited this one >:), happy with the 2 firing points sounds awesome, gives them a lot more protection when firing Melta death everywhere!*

Right here we go, i THINK this could be the finished Product:
HQ:


Daemon Prince + Wings, MON, Warptime = 175 pts
Daemon Prince + Wings, MON, Warptime = 175 pts


Elite’s:

5 Chaos Chosen, 4 Melta Guns, Infiltrate, MON = (using remainder of points for MON if possible)


Troops:


7 PM’s + PC with PF, PI, 2 Meltas, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM’s + PC with PF, 2 Meltas, Rhino = 256 pts
7 PM’s + PC with PF, PI, 2 Flamer’s, Rhino = 246 pts
7 Plague Bearer’s = 91 pts
7 Plague Bearer’s = 91 pts

Heavy Support:


3 Chaos Obliterator’s = 225 pts
Chaos Vindicator + daemonic Possession = 145 pts
Chaos Vindicator + daemonic Possession = 145 pts



Any Objections, please you know what to do.

The over all plan for me is to stick 2 PM squads relatively close together to make a 'static Gunline' or keep them close by eachother to provide support if holding objectives etc and these will be the 2 summoning units to Pop some PB's out when the shit hits the fan, either to provide a tarpit to hold some units up or to assist in combat etc, one squad will have meltas and the other Flamers to keep pesky horde Gribbly's away (hopefully).

The 3rd Squad i will move forwards to assault and pop Tanks (2 Meltas +PF), or use to contest /take enemy Objectives.

The Obilterator's i reckon i'll keep back and make use of their varied weaponry to assist other units to thin number/pop vehicles etc, and with the Vindi's what can i say? Pie plate death anyone?

And last but not least the Chosen. With their Infiltrate Ability i intend to sneak them through cover and surprise attack on Enemy walkers/vehicles/Tanks, and enemy Characters maybe?

Don't forget this is my first Chaos Army (and not the last hopefully :laugh:) so i am still learning tactic's also. Thankyou for all your help it really is greatly recieved by myself and i will post regular updates and let you know how it goes.

Peace out.
