    My friend is currently building up his blood angels force and this has got me thinking about some lists. This is one I've been kicking around now for a few days and I really like it other than the fact that it only has 3 scoring units. I believe it has a big "HOLY S**T" factor what with the 2 dreads, 2 defilers, and the lash prince.

    I had considered dropping the termis and a dread for another unit of marines but I'm really not sure...

    EDIT: Another option is dropping the termis for a couple of small units of lesser daemons.

    As always any thoughts are welcome!

    Quite the potent army list. It looks very similar to my own 1850 list, except I opt for all plague units and have two preds and only one defiler. You're a little weak on long-range tank busting, which is why I'm recommending that you swap one defiler for a second pred. I've found that even a single defiler actually has pretty good staying power in lists like these that take advantage of a high number of large, single model threats, such as dreads, princes, and defilers.

    Keep the termis and the dread. While the build may be a little weak on scoring units, you're not vitally low on troops. Plus, having only a single dread doesn't work nearly as well as the two combined (you know that :p ). Also, pound for pound, the your surgical termi squad should fare better in most games than subbing in the lesser daemon option, especially if you're up against Blood Angels.

    Valid points there Rabbit... My normal CSM champs are currently modeled with combi meltas so changing a defiler for a pred would allow me to include these as well.

    I don't think my long range AT in the current list is that bad (dreads, pred, and battle cannons) but I can see where it could potentially use a slight boost.

    Agreed. Your tank busting is probably adequate at the moment. However, with so many more vehicles toting around the table these days, I like a bit of tank hunting overkill (if that's possible in 5th edition). The earlier you pop them the better. Board control what naught.

    For our troop choices, combi-meltas have been growing on my lately, like warts on the back of Nurgle. I've been dinking around with one in my zerker squads, and then equipping their rhino with a combi-melta as well. I'm hoping they will prove that zerkers are not incapable of producing some kind of tank busting shot at short range.

    EDIT: Also, having the combi-meltas split between squad and transport allows for two possible targets in the same round of shooting, assuming the berzerkers have disembarked.

    Interesting... I wan't aware that the combi metla was an option for the zerker champ. I would suppose that it replaces his pistol but given the new fist rules it's not like you are losing an attack.

    I would put them on the rhinos but my two unit champions have them modeled and are painted to a great standard (for me anyways). One is the old IW warsmith model (with the servo arm as a counts as powerfist) and the other is the chaos lord model with combi melta and powerfist.
