20 Chaos space marines( painted up like plague warriors so can double as either)
8 khorne berzerkers

could you tell us, what special/heavy weapons your csm are equipped with?
i won't make a liszt since i don't have the codex at hand but i can give you some suggestions.
cult treeoops are good at what they do, but expensive. if you use many of them you'll almost ever be outnumbered, so i suggest you build your force around some regular 10 csm squads with power fist/weapon champ and 2 special weapons in rhinos bearing icons of chaos glory.
for tzeentch lord/sorcerer i suggest the daemonic mount, it's like a jump pack but you get an additional attack, which is always useful
maybe you should load up on heavy support, you need some long range firepower to destroy key targets like land raiders and vindicators. also try to get more csm, they are cheap and useful.
thanks good advice i use a heavy bolter and either plasma or meltagun in my two ten man squads and my chosen have a meltagun. i am going to greatly modify this armysoon and will sort out squads for specific tasks. thanks
it's better if you tailor your squads to specific things to maximize their effectiveness. with that said i wouldnt have both a plasma gun and a heavy bolter in the same squad. if you're using them for defense your plasma gun wont be as effective until later in the game, and if they're offensive your rapid fire bolters and heavy bolter work against each other. so for a pure defensive squad i usually only get a heavy bolter, for pure offense squads id go double plasma or plasma flamer
please no one bother with this thread i have put together an army list that is now open to advice etc, this one was before i made list . thanks
