    Hello all!!

    I am new to this forum and I really would appreciate any advice anyone would give me concerning the following army list I am taking to a local 40k tournament. From all the rumors that I've heard around the shop, I will be facing off against the following armies at 1850 points:

    Imperial Guard (2 seperate players with armies)
    Orks(1 player)
    Necrons(1 player)
    Tau(1 player)
    Space Marines(1 player)
    Chaos Marines(1 player) other than myself


    For these battles I am bringing 1850 points of chaos as follows:

    chaos lord with combi bolter, chain fist, terminator armor,demon essence, demon strength, demon mutation
    3 Obliterators
    10 khorne berserkers w/khornate chainaxe
    5 raptors (3 w/flamers)
    15 chaos marines w/bolt pistol and ccw
    15 chaos marines w/bolt pistol and ccw
    10 chaos marines (9 w/bolters 1/lasgun)
    10 chaos marines (9 w/bolters 1/lasgun) mounted in-
    Rhino w/havoc launcher
    defiler w/twin linked bolters and heavy flamer
    dreadnought w/plasma cannon

    It looks pretty good to me but I have only been playing for about a year and only against my friends ork army (about 8wins 1 loss<he had a gargant when he beat me he said the damn thing got 3d6 for saves vs shooting weapons and if any of the 3 dice was 4 or over the shot bounces off its shields&#33; I&#39;m still pretty unsure about THAT rule but whatever, a loss is a loss right?>)
    Anyway I digress. Which army from the above list should I worry about most? Thoughts please. Help please. All input is appreciated. By the way, the tourney is in 48 hours so I don&#39;t have much time. Did I mention it&#39;s my first tourney?
    Thanks in advance to all replies.

    I don&#39;t think the heavy flamer on the Defiler will be that useful; Havoc Launchers are lots better in my opinion.

    I&#39;d suggest mabye, mabye drop the Raptors and get a squad of Havocs.

    And mabye a Predator Annihilator as well, for more versatility.

    The thing about the heavy flamer is that I got the rhino from ebay and had to use the havoc launcher that came with the defiler to put on the rhino. I should have made sure the model had all its parts before bidding(doh&#33 Havocs would be cool but that would mean pulling the lasguns from the squads, would heavy bolters be a better choice for the squads if I made a 2 lasgun 1 rocket launcher havoc squad? Also I don&#39;t have a predator, but do you think they are valuable enough to in battle to be worth saving for one for the next tourney? also would it be worth adding aspiring champs anywhere?
