    1.5k Emperor Children. Help with points

    I got a lot of help the last time I posted on the server. I've always wanted to run a Slaanesh based group of marines but never did. So here I am toying with a list... Any idea what to do with the extra points? Also if anyone wants to critique the list please go ahead any help is always appreciated.


    Chaos Lord.MoS. Daemonic Steed.Daemonic Weapon.
    Daemon Prince. MoS. Wings. lash
    6 Noise marines.5 sonic blasters.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino
    6 Noise marines.5 sonic blasters.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino
    Predator. Heavy Bolter Sponson. Havoc Launcher.
    Predator. LC Sponsons
    Obliterator.
    Obliterator.
    6 Noise marines. 6 sonic blasters
    6 Chaos Raptors. AC w/PF. 2 Melta Guns.
    1467

    What do you think would be best with the remaining points? Also do you think steed/wings/bike would be best for lord? Originally I was gonna run two Daemon Princes with the same set up.... but I figured the Slaanesh Daemon weapon is so nice... its worth having one to take down models like carnifexes etc..

    Get extra armour on the rhinos.

    I'd rather get wings on the lord, as it will allow him to keep up with the raptors.

    Otherwise looks pretty good.

    So something like this?

    Chaos Lord.MoS. Wings.Daemonic Weapon. Combi-melta.
    Daemon Prince. MoS. Wings. lash
    6 Noise marines.5 sonic blasters.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino w/extra armor
    6 Noise marines.5 sonic blasters.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino w/extra armor
    Predator. Heavy Bolter Sponson. Havoc Launcher.
    Predator. LC Sponsons
    Obliterator.
    Obliterator.
    6 Noise marines. 6 sonic blasters
    6 Chaos Raptors. AC w/PF. 2 Melta Guns.
    1497
    with the extra 10 points I figured its worth it to give the lord some anti-armor. Or.. I could drop the combi-melta and the two extra armor gain back 45 points and get another Raptor and MoS for the squad... ( even though I've been trying to keep it in fluff order with only six )

    Sonic blasters aren't really necessary on assaulty rhino squads...

    I'd drop the sonic blasters on those two squads, and the combi-melta on the lord for 3 extra noise marines in those rhinos, as I think assault squads really want to be larger...but that might go against your fluff of six-man squads.

    Well with the sonic blasters I'll get the 10 shots off plus the doomsiren before the assault which should help to even up the odds before combat starts.

    Do you think the 10 shots beforehand given up from the assault shooting rules are worth 1-2 extra bodies. Since I'd have to split the 3 marines between the two groups so one will get 1 and the other would get 2.

    Sorry if the post is a little disjointed I'm sort of out of it today

    Although after messing about. I've come up with this potentially if you feel its worth dropping the sonic blasters


    Chaos Lord.MoS. Wings.Daemonic Weapon.
    Daemon Prince. MoS. Wings. lash
    6 Noise marines.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino w/extra armor
    6 Noise marines.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino w/extra armor
    6 Noise marines.AC w/ power weapon,doom siren + Rhino w/extra armor
    Predator. Heavy Bolter Sponson. Havoc Launcher.
    Predator. LC Sponsons
    6 Noise marines. 6 sonic blasters
    6 Chaos Raptors. AC w/PF. 2 Melta Guns.
    1493

    It drops the sonic blasters and the 2 obliterators in favor of another squad of the mounted noise marines. I think in a 1.5k match the LC Predator, the melta gun raptors, the daemon prince and to a less extent the other predator provide enough anti heavy/light armor
