Im looking to start a 750 point CSM army and need some advice on where to start.
The list to be versatile.
Easy to stratagise with.
Not to be too fragile .
To be able to take on all armies at a simliar point cost.
I dont want to be assigned to a specific god as I want a good mix of everything.
So what would you reccommend based on this?
(dont want to spend £££ on models i dont like to use in the game)
I do have the codex to hand aswell so I can reference what is advised...
Chaos is not for the weak. Fight for your rights, step on your opponent's throats. Crawl across the bodies you leave on the battlefield to reach your rightful place at the eschelons of chaos.
DP, wings, warp time, 155pts, L 17.60 (also about L10 for a big pair of wings)
10x CSM, AC, PW, IoCG, 2x melta, rhino, 245 pts, L 35.20
10x CSM, AC, PW, IoCG, 2x plasma, rhino, 255 pts, L 35.20
ok that's 655 pts right there, and 98 L. You could take 2 power fists for 20 more points, also 2 melta bombs for 10, and could also trick out your rhinos for some more firepower and make it really close to 750. When you hit 1000 pts, then a great trick is to get termies or oblits and Deep strike them using the icons so there is no scatter.

See this is where I get lost, the alignment of gods.
I dont really want to paint one on there as I will want to pick them over time and try out all sorts of things before I even consider dedicating them to one alignment.
So basically CSM, Rhino and Demon prince will do me for 500 points?
As for the time being my budget has been eaten by a cat. Quite literally.
HQ: Daemon Prince, MoS, Wings, Lash of submission. 155
Troops: 10 CSM, IoCG, 2 Meltas, Champion with PF, Rhino. 255
Troops: 10 CSM, IoCG, 2 Plasmas, Champion with PF, Rhino. 265
Heavy: 1 Obliterator. 75
This is 750 points and includes the core of a decent chaos list. To expand get another oblit, a pred or defiler and 1 or 2 extra troop choices.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
That demon prince looks solid as does the obliterator.
Forgive my noobess but IoCG?
Which icon is this?...

And did you mean lash of torment, I cant see one for submision but the torment one is in the book of Slaanesh.
Lash of submission is a phsycic power and Icon of Chaos Glory. I second the idea of 2x10 CSM with power fist 2x Melta Guns IoCG and a rhino the daemon prince and the obliterator a very good start.
Change is good
Coolios, Well a guy i work with who is joining the navy so is downscaling as his models wont be used has offered me 20 CSM, 8 raptors, 10 slanesh demons for £15.00.
Think ill get them, an oblit and demon prince. Then buy a battered old rhino off ebay and convert it.
Thanks for the help. Its a start at least for me.
Anyone have any odeas where I can get hold of some wings for a new style demon prince?
For the wings, you can buy them online from the gamesworkshop store. Check in the fantasy bitz section there are a heap of wings in there.
I bought the plastic dragon wings which fit the joints on the regular daemon prince perfectly, cost me $14 AUD so is probably like 6 pounds or so, round 10 USD. Or you could check out other bitz stores.
