Hey, I just started up warhammer 40k again with my friend and ive chosen Chaos. I finally believe I have found the perfect army for me after doing tau and tyranids and not liking certain aspects of them. Well now that i've started collecting a chaos army ive been looking at making my first 1k army built towards stuff that seems decent but that also appeals to me at the same time, so here goes my list. Any suggestions and tips would be awesome.
Chaos Lord (first model I bought, was all they had in the way of lords go)
-Twin Linked autocannon
8 Chaos Space Marines (The only other thing I currently have right now besides lord is this box of 10)
-Mark of Chaos Glory
8 Khorne Berzerkers
-Two Plasma Pistols
Rhino (for berzerkers)
-Pintle Mounted twin linked bolter
3 Chaos Bikers
-1 plasma gun
-Leaving it as is
Total= 1022 points
So yea, any thoughts/suggestions would be much appreciated for a new chaos player
A lot has changed with the new dex. First all CSM need to have 10 men in order to take 2 weapons, we also don take a heavy and and assault weapon, usually just 2 of the same assault weapon. While we are here the CSM need a rhino and a powerfist and the zerkers need a fist. Drop the PP's, a champ or zerker isnt worth 1 bad roll. The dreadnought is all right but use the ML and dump the armor to keep it cheap. The bikers need to go they are too expensive. With the points from that, dump the defiler and get 2 predw with lascannon sponsons for AT. The lord needs a complete overhaul, pick a mark, give him a daemon weapon and either wings, bike or a jump pack for speed. if you come up short on points, dump thedreadnought, they dont do that much and are very unpredictable.
hope it helps
hmm ok, so should I be taking 8 or 10 CSM?
10 without question
a normal unit is
10 CSM (245-265pts)
-Icon of Chaos Glory
-2x assault weapons, usually meltas
This gives CSM the most firepower for a decent price and can be tailored to play any role on the field
