8 Plague Marines 229p
8 Plague Marines 229p
The very is made from models I got and I think it could work.
I would drop your marines to units of 7 with a powerfist or drop the champions entirely. drop a plasmagun to a maltagun to get the points.
A Daemon prince with Mos and lash would be nice and more versatile than your curreny HQ. As it is a relativley small game there won't be that much firepower around to single him out.

I really like this list. I say go for it!
The only thing i would change would be to do the switch of 1 PM/squad to a Power Fist.
"And that, my liege, is how we know the earth to be banana-shaped"
I play tested this list against my friends 'nids today. It was well. He had 2 units of 'stealers and I was ALMOST able to kill 'em both with lash + shooting. But... I didnt take Hive Tyrant seriously and him and ONE 'stealer pwned 11 of my Plague Marines. The one genestealer killed 4 by his own lol. But I still won the game with 277 points so it was ok for the 1st 750p game with Chaos. And it was against Rending / Power Weapon Horde so could have done better against some other army.
I've been thinking replacing another Plague Marine unit with
5 Terminators 215p
+5 Combiplasmas 25p
+Icon of Nurgle 40p
That would add some melee power and lots of marine / fast vehicle killing powah. Then taking 2nd plasma off from PM squad I could buy fist to them.
Nice one. Nice to see people using plague marines. Glad they worked out for you.

Ok... I playtested terminators against my brothers orks. It's hard to believe but I would take 5 Plague Marines over 5 Terminators if I look at the games results. I killed Warboss with Lash + 5 Combiplasmas combo and that was it. 11 Ork Boyz came and rumbled 4 of the termies (1 killed himself with Gets Hot!). The Plague Marines would have stood way longer because of Blight Grenades and FNP but they lack some power and DS. Actually I am using proxys for 2nd Plague Marine squad so tell me which ones should I choose? (Im a dirty liar, ye?) When we come up to the models I prefer plastic because I cant find a good metal glue and it's easier to paint plastic ones. Both models are IMO cool.
Maybe that playtest was just some bad luck or terrible use (didnt DS 'em). What gear you would give for the termies if you would be me?
