    Good all round list, not much I can really say about it. I'd probably take a Predator instead of the Defiler, but thats more personal taste than anything. Cant imagine that list doing badly at all...

    A good list, maybe drop a marine or 2 and get a power weapon or powerfist in one of the cc squads.
    Btw, deamons are troops and not elites

    Yeah, I know daemon are troops, but my commander are undivided and Plaguebearers are Nurgle they become elites.

    Some comments on rules:
    Models in terminator armour can't take frag grenades;
    The Cult units becoming elites only counts for Chaos space marines, Daemon packs are always troops.

    The army is okay, but you need anti-tank power. I'd ditch the Chosen, as they aren't anything special when configured this way, they're just overpriced Chaos space marines. Get a heavy weapon in the bolter-wielding squad, preferably a lascannon because you lack AT weapons (get rid of their frag grenades, as they have bolters they're a shooty unit). Get one or two meltaguns in the Raptor squad for the same reason.
    Something you might consider is using a Lieutenant without terminator armour, let him join the pistol-wielding squad and mount them in a rhino (and give that squad a meltagun in addition to the flamer, makes a good combo).
    Like Al Venom, I'd personally use a predator with lascannons instead of the Defiler, but if it works for you, keep it.

    OK, I&#39;ll change that, but what then is the point of Word Bearers using all types of Daemons?

    Yeah, I discovered that the tanks are a problem, might add some meltas or similiar.
    Do you want me to add a lieutnant or change my present?

    Looks good, only a few things I&#39;d change:
    Drop the termie Lieutenant to save up some points (2 HQ is a bit much for 1,000 pts anyway);
    give the other Lieutenant Daemonic Aura rather than Armour, it&#39;ll probably do you more good;
    give both the rhino and the dreadnought extra armour and smoke, see this as standard equipment ;
    give the Raptor squad a champion, preferably with 2 lightning claws for marine/necron killing goodness .
    C&#39;est ca&#33;

    Can&#39;t I just have both Aura and Armour?

    What exactly does Smokelauchers do? I haven&#39;t got the WH40K Rulebook...

    You could take both, if you have enough points. Usually do I don&#39;t consider Daemonic Armour worth the cost for characters.
    If you don&#39;t have the BBB, then get it now. You can&#39;t play without knowing the rules.
