so i been challaged by a khorne player i met recently sayin his list can beat my nurgle list i dout it however he wanted 2k points and my list is 1.5k so i lookin for some advice as to what to add i have a few ideas but fresh eyes is always nice (i would also like to point out that the 1.5k list is soild and has hammered every1 its faced)

for what i know he fields lord on bike with AOBF and bikers with zerkers and marines with ccw in transports and a pred

mine is:

HQ

chaos lord (MoN ,bike,lighting claw/power fist , SoC,, blight nades, melta bombs, gift)

5x bikers (MoN, 2x Melta guns, gift)

Troops
7x Plague marines (2x Plasma guns,Combie weapon)

7x Plague marines (2x Plasma guns,Combie weapon)

7x Plague marines (2x Plasma guns,Combie weapon)

Heavy
5x Havocs (MoN,4x Autocannons)

5x Havocs (MoN,4x Autocannons)

5x Havocs (MoN,4x Lascannons)

Aegis Defence line (Quad Cannon)

now this gives me 500 points i kinda thinking a hell drake is a must

now i know my list fits a fluffy nurgle list and this fits nice and thats a band of slanesh termies wanted a piece of the khorne lord so its

termies (+4 men, Mos, 2x lighting claws(on each), champ with power axe, and icon of excess )

have a few other but i wanna knwo what u think

Well, blight grenades trump the Mark of Khorne handily, so you already have the edge this game. That looks like a mean list of yours, too, though a Heldrake would make it even meaner.

I take it that you subscribe to the school of thought that you can swap a bike's twin-linked bolter for another weapon? Because that's the only way to get 3 weapons, since the other ones a Lord can buy get swapped out, not bought anew--and I'd recommend you get a better combo than the lance/sword, in which you're paying double for essentially +1 S the turn you charge. I'd instead get fisticlaws: a power fist and a lightning claw, only 10 points more and you still get a bonus attack for having 2 specialist weapons, and you get to adjust your attacks depending on who you're facing.

I'd also try to get rhinos for those plague marine squads, if possible. If those Berzerkers are reduced to scratching at your hull instead of chopping you apart, so much the better. Combi weapons on the champs is nice, but if you know you're going to be dueling it out with enemy champions who will strike before you do... have you considered power axes or fists for those champions too?

arr i forgot to take that combie melta out thats not ment to be there i was thinkin of fist claw at first i just liked the thought of a lance /sword weapon style and as for the champs i wanted to keep the plague knives as they get reroll to wound anythin t4 or lower thx to the poison and i dont normaly run rhinos coz i will sit it all behind the defence line coz if they hold bk the havocs will get them and the closer they get the more fire power they get at them and ya i thnk the hell drake is a must when makin this list 2k still leaves 330 pts to dish out pain

i think if i change the lords weps i will still be on the same points which i have done

Cultists are there to sit in reserve, an come out later to take a home objective, freeing your PM squads to play midfield.

No drakes and yet the guy is calling you out? The idea is to shut him up is it not?

Don't count Cultists out of the fight! I have 2 squads of 10 (from DV set) and run them with MoN (because T4 cultists is hilariously annoying). Anyway, the 2 games I've played of 40k, my cultists have added to my victory points costs in a major way! First game i got a few for holding an objective AND getting into enemy deployment zone, the next game i had a unit of 10 shoot at Belial (the Dark Angel in termi armour) from 12' away and totally blast the crap out of him! Cultists are definitely under rated, they dont have the stats but that makes them deadly, everyone doesnt bother shooting them, but they have the numbers to kill a few marines or terminators each shooting phase.
