I'm playing a small 4th edition chaos game. I'm using my Slaneeshi army
Lash of Submission
10 X CSM
10 X CSM
6 X Raptors
I will be mobile to outmanouvre my opponent and get into meltarange, killing him squad by squad by concentrated fire and assaulting in directly afterwards. With my superiour initiative I will hit first and fairly hard. With a D.P. with Lash I can manipulate him some.
Will this be enough to beat my friends IWs with khorne lord with LCs and temiearmour, 2 units of CSM with plasmaguns and a Defiler?
The only thing I can suggest is to trade your DP for a Slaaneshi Lord with Blissgiver on a Steed. All you do is run him into the lord, and watch your opponent cry over his beloved HQ.
I was thinking about taking such a lord, but I have some arguments against it.
1. Hes too expensive. My DP is worth 155p and that lord would be 165p. I already got an overly expensive HQ. I cant spend more points.
2. I want the psychic power to keep his units away so I can concentrate my fire and combat on one target alone.
3. I havent got a lord model, but just finished my DP conversion. He looks amazing and I want to scare the living crap out of my opponent.
Some more thoughts about tactics:
Everything in my army moves 12" every movement phase. I will protect my expensive Raptors by always hiding them behind my rhinos. All my troops have Initiative 5, so they all stike first in CC. Any unit being assaulted by 2 units of CSM and some raptors will fall. And if the DP joins the party then I cant fail.
My only problem is his shooty Defiler and my lack of power weapons. Assaulting one of his units means I need to wipe it out, or else his power weapons are going to hurt me real bad. I got a total of 6 meltaguns. I just hope that can take down the Defiler properly.
I'm pretty sure finding 10 points would be easy, as dropping a Raptors melta wouldn't hinder you at all. Also, lash may help, but a deamon weapon would create more problems for him. Especially the Blissgiver.
