Here's a list I have been working on. I want to include a bit of all the marks of Chaos just for a fun list but it needs to be competitive as my area is very competitive. Here goes
140pts Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoK
155pts Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoS, Lash
Khorne prince is just a cheap supporter with no frills or goodies. The Slaanesh one is to support the Vindicators.
279pts x8 Plague Marines w/ Champ, Power fist, x2 Meltaguns in Rhino
304pts x9 Thousand Sons w/ Sorcerer, Warptime in Rhino
243pts x8 Khorne Berserkers w/ champ, Power Fist in Rhino
255pts x10 Chaos Marines w/ Champ, Power Fist, IoCG, x2 Meltaguns in Rhino
250pts x8 Noise Marines w/ Champ, Power Fist, Doom Siren in Rhino
Lots of troops, never a bad thing with 5th. Lots of power fists and meltaguns to deal with any and all comers. I played against a guy that had Warptime in his TS squad and it really makes a difference in CC with those guys. Adds a lot more punch to the unit in CC. Noise marines are cheap with no extra guns, but with the rhino ideally to get into good positions to use that nasty doom siren.
This one I am torn between the 3 vindy's or go with x3 Preds with twin las only. Cheap effective, mobile and will draw fire from the rhinos. But these 3 vindicators would be a huge target and a nearly must shoot especially with a Slaanesh prince hanging out with them. I would keep the 3 vindy's all together and move forward dropping plates on the enemy. I think I like the 3 vindy's for pure fear factor.
The idea is the 5 Rhinos start on the one flank with the Khorne DP. While the other flank has all 3 Vindicators and the Slaanesh Prince with them for support and lash of goodness. I think its very well rounded and able to deal with nearly everything except maybe a ton of skimmers. I am looking for ideas with my heavies that would best support my troops and be a large enough annoyance to draw fire consistantly. Any comments or ideas are greatly welcome.
Also how has people found vindicators with 5th ed? Would 3 Vindicators be a force or would they end up not paying for there points?
My vote is with the scatter dice they will hit 1/3 of the time. So with that when I shoot all three at a target that I lashed, in theory 1 will surely hit my intended target. The main thing is that I need a large enough distraction to my rhinos and I would think 3 vindicators lined up together moving forward with a lash prince would draw a LOT of attention.
OR take the for sure fire support in having x3 Preds with Autocannon and las sponsons. They would draw fire as well but I think people would fear the vindy's more and want to shoot them.
What ya think?
