    500 point league list. (Combat patrol rules)

    Alright, so my local group has a small league starting soon, 500 points each, combat patrol. Basically, for those who don't know, no 2+ armour saves, no models with more than 2 wounds, no vehicles with over 33 armour all round (Which is everything for chaos except rhinos). Also the minimal choice is 1 troops choice, no need to take a HQ or second troops choice.

    We will be using scenarios and objectives from the rulebook, so I have to think about scoring units and not just 'KILL THEM ALL!' units.
    I have decided to run my night lords list in this, although it could be any legion, asnothing makes it particularly 'Night Lords'-y.
    I want to be able to do this witth the models I already have (Which limits the special weapons on my troops to plasma guns, unfortunately), so that whilst painting the models for this, I get further into my Night Lords list (I want 2,000 points of NL painted for next years LO meet).
    This is what I was thinking.

    7 Chaos Marines
    Plasma Gun
    IoCG
    Champion with Powerfist
    Rhino
    205 Points

    7 Chaos Marines
    Plasma Gun
    IoCG
    Champion with Powerfist
    Rhino
    205 Points

    5 Chaos Marines
    Plasma Gun
    90 Points


    The other option is this:


    6 Chaos Marines
    Plasma Gun
    IoCG
    Champion with Powerfist
    Rhino
    190 Points

    6 Chaos Marines
    Plasma Gun
    IoCG
    Champion with Powerfist
    Rhino
    190 Points

    6 Chaos Havocs
    2x Plasma Gun
    120 Points


    Obviously the second list has more firepower, but it has only 2 objective holding units, whereas the first list has three. So LO, which list do we like better?

    Hmm, tough call. Do you have any play experience with any of these lists? I'm worried about the Champions (and maybe the Icons, but probably not) soaking up too many points and not getting utilized fully, to earn their points back.

    That is a very good point, that has come up a few times. As I said, I am looking to do this with my current Night Lords models (More for the fact that I do not want to paint models i'll only use for this tournament, rather than anything else), and my 2,000 point list contains only 2 squads of chaos marines (Shock! Horror! I use lesser daemons instead.) The powerfists also deal with any tanks that do show up (Walkers, and the like), and mean that Rippy has less models he has to paint (Which is always good).

    I guess I could drop them all to 5 man strong, drop the powerfist champions, and take a squad of raptors on top of this, with a melta gun or two incase I happen to come up against a front armour 12 tank.

    You have enough plasma in the first squad, I believe it will fare better then the second.

    Being Night Lords, I have a few. I have 2 with powerfists, 4 with melta guns, 2 with icons, and 8 normal ones. I WAS considering running a squad of raptors in this list, but once again its one less scoring unit.

    I'm just thinking that you'll likely go up against landspeeders and you might want to be a bit more maneuverable.

    Quite possible, as there are (So far) 2 marine players in the league. I think, however, the rhinos are manoverable enough, and the plasma guns/mass bolter fire can take many of them down.

    Edit: I have just been informed that I can swap my army around (So long as I stay as Chaos Marines) as the league progresses, so if I DO come up against a speeder-heavy army, I could swap out for some raptors.

    I like the first list mainly because of the three scoring units.
