    1500 Tournament List for Review

    I have enjoyed good success with my CSM so far (being my first gaming 40k army - used to just paint). As a result, I have decided to go to this year's GT to see how I fare. Usually I play more of a 'fun' list with friends but I want to tweak it and continually play test to get the best overall list for me. This is similar to my usual list with a few nasty surprises.

    Any C&C, no matter how small, much appreciated. It's a little over on points at the moment so any possible reductions particularly appreciated.

    HQ:

    Demon Prince, MoS, Wings, Lash

    Demon Prince, MoN, Wings, Warptime

    Troop:

    8 Plaguemarines, 2 plasmas

    8 Plague Marines, 2 plasmas (maybe meltas? as this is more os an assaulty unit) AC w/ P. Fist (again not sure about these any more as they dont have 10 wounds before they die in 5th), Rhino

    8 Berserkers, AC w. P Weap (see above), Rhino

    Fast:

    8 Raptors, IoK, 2 Meltas

    Heavy:

    6 Havoks, 4 HBs

    6 Havoks, 4 MLs

    2 Obliterators


    And that's it. I have been using the footslogger PMs to just run up the centre and sit in cover and laugh off shots while each DP goes with a rhino on either flank to cause mayhem. Obviously this depends on terrain etc but that's the basic plan.

    I would use 2 Lash princes but a: 1 is lame enough and b: I have a sweetly painted Nurgle Demon Prince that is probably my fave model I have ever painted.

    Once again, any C&C greatly appreciated

    HQ:

    Demon Prince, MoS, Wings, Lash

    Demon Prince, MoN, Wings, Warptime

    Both fine, but see below.

    Troop:

    8 Plaguemarines, 2 plasmas

    8 Plague Marines, 2 plasmas (maybe meltas? as this is more os an assaulty unit) AC w/ P. Fist (again not sure about these any more as they dont have 10 wounds before they die in 5th), Rhino

    8 Berserkers, AC w. P Weap (see above), Rhino

    No Powerfist for the first PMs. That worries me. Otherwise fine.
    Fast:

    8 Raptors, IoK, 2 Meltas

    Great!, but the desperately need a Champ with a PF.

    Heavy:

    6 Havoks, 4 HBs

    6 Havoks, 4 MLs

    Lose 1 ML and 1 HB, otherwise fine. However, I don't think MLs will be so good in 5th.

    2 Obliterators

    Great.

    I think that two DPs in 1,500 is pushing it a little, and that you should lose the Nurgle DP to pay for squad upgrades. Also remeber that in 5th, Troops become more important.

    Have fun and good luck.

    Lord Ramon.

    The demon princes are used in conjunction with the CC short range/squads and to threaten my main worries (jetbikes, Tanks etc). I know 2 in 1500 is a little on the fromage side but meh... It's the GT

    I wouldn't worry about cheese. I like cheese. Those people who complain about perfectly legal lists should think about why they're are playing in tournaments etc.
