    I've decided to collect Night Lords for three main reasons:

    1) Seriously cool winged helmets!
    2) Night vision.
    3) After Tau I wanted something with a bit of combat punch.

    And here it is, a fast, scary Chaos list:


    Chaos Sorceror, wind of chaos, power fist, combi-flamer
    Mark of CU (Chaos Undivided), infiltrate, stealth adept

    Retinue of 6 chosen, Marks of CU, infiltrate, stealth adepts
    1 has a melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with bolt pistol and power sword


    2 Obliterators

    8 Possessed, daemonic talons, in a Rhino


    8 marines, marks of CU, in a Rhino
    1 with plasma gun
    1 with melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with powerfist and bolt pistol

    6 marines, marks of CU, infiltrate
    1 with plasma gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with power sword and bolt pistol


    5 raptors, marks of CU, furious charge
    1 with melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with 2 lightning claws

    6 furies


    Predator, autocannon, 2 lascannons

    (every squad with marks of CU has a free icon)

    TOTAL= 1504

    I only bought the codex yesterday, and don't know too much about chaos, so any help would be worth it's weight in skulls, e.t.c. Thanks!

    A 1000 pt list would mean that I would have to lose the following:

    Raptors
    Possessed and rhino
    Two plasma guns

    Any thoughts on these two lists?

    that list seems great, but i think that a high inititive and/or swarmy army would give it a run for its money

    First off you lord and chosen are illiegal, if you take a mark, any mark, your only allowed one vet skill, and stealth adept does count towards that skill limit, I would suggest dropping stealth adept, since your lord and retinue do best in cc.
    Second, your two squads, what are there normal guys equipped with, bolters or bolt pistols and cc weapons, if there geared for cc, I would recomnd droping the plasma gun for a plasma pistol, since theyll probbly be on the move anyway so either way they get the one shot before cc, and a bonus attack. If there equipped with bolters and not meant for cc I would probbly drop the AC. As for your raptors, you have alot of points invested in your Raptor aspiring champion, 76 points I do belive, and most of it comes from the lightning claws, I would probbly drop them for (ranging from most expensive to cheapest) powerfist and bolt pistol, power sword and bolt pistol, daemonic claws, daemonic venom.
    Also give your rhinos smoke launchers and extra armour (8 points per rhino) if you can, they GREATLY increase surviablty of the rhino.
    Some things you might want to watch out for while playing... your raptors numbers are kind of low, so try and keep them out of los as best you can. From my experience its better to use that 12 inch movment to stay out of los then just charge forward, at least my enemys love to shoot my mighty raptors out of the sky... Your predator and oblits are your only heavy weapons really, so guard em as best you can.
    Rember these are just pointers, don't have to change everything I suggest.
    And good to see another nightlords player, me and protocon welcome you to our ranks

    1 has a melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion sorceror (wind of chaos) with bolt pistol and power sword
    in a Rhino with smoke launchers and extra armour.


    2 Obliterators

    8 Possessed, daemonic talons, in a Rhino with smoke launchers


    8 marines, marks of CU, in a Rhino with smoke launchers
    6 with cc wpns and pistols
    1 with melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with powerfist and bolt pistol

    7 marines, marks of CU, infiltrate
    5 bolt guns
    1 with plasma gun
    1 with heavy bolter


    5 raptors, marks of CU, furious charge
    1 with melta gun
    1 is an aspiring champion with 1 lightning claw and plasma pistol

    6 furies


    Predator, autocannon, 2 lascannons

    (every squad with marks of CU has a free icon)
    (everything has free night vision)

    TOTAL= 1499



    that's the new list, couldn't fit the extra armour in the points...

    The raptors and oblits will deep strike and unleash the furies in the enemy rear, whilst the three rhinos smash into the enemy front under covering fire from the infiltrating squad, oblits and pred.
    How's the list and tactics now?

    hmm seems like a very good strategy the only problems could come from deepstrike scatter(something that lands you next to an avatar or something)

    Only problem with that stratagy is.... Raptors CAN NOT DEEPSTRIKE, im pretty sure ive said this before, but raptors lack the abilty to deep strike, might want to rethink your plan there a bit. But over all the new list looks pretty good.
