    I was looking at the CSM army list and was thinking "wow, Emperor's Children can sure kick out a lot of firepower." I play orks so the person who can kick off 60 shots a turn with 25 models scares me. Here's my idea:

    Emperor’s Children 1000 test

    HQ

    1 Chaos Lieutenant 45
    Mark of Slaanesh 10
    Power Weapon 15
    Kai Gun 25
    95

    Elites

    6 Chosen 102
    Mark of Slaanesh 30
    4 Sonic Blasters 20
    2 Blastmasters 40
    Aspiring Champion 0
    192

    Troops

    6 Chaos Space Marines 84
    Mark of Slaanesh 30
    5 Sonic Blasters 25
    Blastmaster 10
    Aspiring Champion 0
    149

    6 Chaos Space Marines 84
    Mark of Slaanesh 30
    5 Sonic Blasters 25
    Blastmaster 10
    Aspiring Champion 0
    149

    Heavy Support

    6 Chaos Havocs 84
    Mark of Slaanesh 30
    2 Sonic Blasters 10
    4 Blastmasters 80
    Aspiring Champion 0
    204

    6 Chaos Havocs 84
    Mark of Slaanesh 30
    2 Sonic Blasters 10
    4 Blastmasters 80
    Aspiring Champion 0
    204


    comes out to 993 points I think. Do any of you have any opinions on this army? it might be next after orks...

    The thing was, I couldn't do much more to increase his ability to shoot. At that point, I wasn't going to spend the points to make him better at something that the rest of the army isn't good at. If i made him a melee monster he would still die because the rest of the army couldn't support him.

    Do you think that I should drop the power weapon, get a close combat weapon instead, and change the chosen squad to another havocs squad?

    in my opinion, you dont really need anything 'too powerful' in the way of melee, the basic CSM is quite decent..

    although, with the chosen, i think you should drop the sonic blasters and add another model, you dont really need the blasters in this case, the default weapons will own up quite nicely

    The thing is that a sonic blaster is always at least 1.5 times as effective as a bolter, for only 5 points more. in certain situations it is 3 times as good. Sonic Blasters are THE BEST GUNS IN THE GAME no joke!

    I prefer to keep the squad at size 6 because this keeps the champion free. The squad is relatively efficient at this size because another squad member would require an inordinate amount of points (almost double).

    Switching Chosen to more Havocs

    PROS
    -more sonic blasters (12 to 14)

    Cons
    -3 heavy support choices are not allowed in some scenarios
    -lowers the volume of Sonic Blaster shots
    -removes Power Weapon (dont care much about this last one)

    i really dont see a problem with giving my lord a ***** load of gear. I do it all the time and can kick some serious ass anyway sonic blasters are good and i think that is a very shooty army.

    The way i judge the merit of an army list is whether i would be scared to play it, and yes, this one makes me tremble&#33;
    oh, and go for the havocs, the blastmaster is just so sweet
    drop the power weopon on the Lt, if you need to depend on killing something like termies in cc then somethings gone wrong anyways

    Does the volume on the sonic blaster contribute to its effectiveness at all? How is this calculated?
    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    i think you have to have Daemonic Stature if you want to use a Kai gun (I think)
