Hey everyone! I need some help with my list. I have all the up to date codex would really like to play with a primary detachment of khorne!

My list so far is this...

Soul Grinder (165)
MoK
Phlem
x2 Iron CLaw


Land Raider (230)


Berzerkers x8 (182)
Icon of Wrath
Melta Bombs on CHamp
LC/PF on CHamp


Terminators x5 (182)
MoK
Gift of mutation on champ


After that I have a lot more available models but I'm just starting out with the game so could really really use some pointers over here!

WHat I have to work with is

Chaos Lord termie armor
Daemon Prince
Chaos Lord
A squad of CSM/Havocs
x2 Oblits
Lots of zerks
lots of cultists
13 termies
a squad of raptors/warptalon
A land raider
predator/rhino
a squad of possessed
x 10 chosen
x 2 hellbrute
dreadnaught
soul grinder
and one bike


I like the idea of a chaos lord with a retinue or bodyguards of chosen or terminators I'm just not sure how to load them up to play the effectively.

The lord could also hang with the berzerkers I suppose! I plan on running a rhino up one side of the field followed by a soul grinder and the other side i would run my land raider follwed by my daemon prince

Now I could use cultists i suppose as meat shield/objective holders or with a hellbrute running hellcult or three hellbrutes for the mayham pack which seems pretty BA to me!

I know I can't use my oblits using the daemonkin supplement so they would have to be in an allying dtachment but they are my fire power and maybe turn a squad of CSM into havocs for added support?

ALso would a heldrake be something to invest in?

Putting a lord w/possessed in a land raider or lord on bike w/spawn does wonders. cultists are a good way to get blood points fast in a daemonkin army. Just field them w/ no upgrades. Investing in a heldrake is a good idea. W/ the bale flamer it is good for wiping out infantry or w/ the hades autocannon you can possibly take out flyers and armored vehicles.

I'm going to run a Chaos Lord in a Land Raider with his squad of hand picked warriors equipped with Terminator armor lightning claws and combi-meltas. And a Daemon Prince also, I'm still playing with the builds though at this point. However, for the Aspiring/Skull Champion in my Berzerker squad can he have a lightning claw and a powerfist? If so I'm having trouble finding how many additional points that would cost him.

SO they'd look something like,
3 squads of 8 Berzerkers.
2 of the Berzerkers in each squad have plasma pistols.
The Champions will be outfitted with powerfists and ccw. OR if possible a powerfist and a lightning claw.
Gift of mutation.
Melta bombs.

They ride a Rhino around and kill stuff.
RHino has Extra armor and Dirge caster.

What do ya'll think?

I'm totally saving up for a helldrake! They're so cool. I have a Soul Grinder to help me out though! How are soul grinders normally played? I planned on giving him phlem bombardment to sit back and launch ordnance shots or maybe warp gaze? that seemed good.

I sometimes will deep strike my soul grinder behind enemy lines just to rattle the enemy up a little while defy sits back and hammers the enemy w/ his cannon. Normally u just bombard the enemy w/ the phlem as he advances.

@jbmills I'm pretty far out of the game loop. I do have recent books but not the latest supplements.

Based on what I know though I'd recommend checking eBay, amazon, or a place like Bartertown for spawn and a Heldrake. Spawn you have quite a bit of latitude with the models. You could probably use trolls, ogres, or other suitably outlandish miniatures.
