This i hope should be a pretty good List so far, but need some advice on how to finish it.
Bezerkers x8 (A.C, P.F) 208
Bezerkers x8 (A.C, P.F) 208
Land Raider 220
Land Raider 220
That leave about 200pts (think its 203 to be accurate) so here is what i think would be good to finish it off:
8 man squad of Zerkers in a Rhino (203 Points)
2 Oblits/Defiler and make Kharn's squad a 9 man squad or Demonic possession on the land raiders.
8/9 Plagues with Melta guns?
Something else to fill that 200pt gap, i think what i have got can kill a large proportion of any army, as long as the Land Raiders do not die first turn, not sure weather I need another troop to capture objectives (possibly 10 CSM in a rhino with Melta/plasma guns)
Any help would be greatly appreciated, preferably before 6 PM tomorrow(when I will be playing 40K) so i can test and then start painting (if i like it) this army in time for GT heats in November
the way tournament lists goes up my way, thats a few too models to make much difference, Once the land raiders are down and it wouldnt take too long then army pretty much foot slogs plus you are having 26 infnatry models max, i would see it being gunned down.
I'd probably ditch Abaddon,even though he is an absolute beast, 275 points is a 5th of your army and that is a large points sink, i'd only really play him in something like 'ard boyz where the points limit is 2500.
Keep kharn from what i have heard from a friend of mine he is good and will score his points back if played well.
From there i'd only take the single squad of 8 khorne berserkers and remove the powerfist giving them a power weapon, to use that nice I 5 on the charge, also give them a rhino so they can get to the assault nicely. (233 Points)
Then i'd add two squads of 10 CSM with 2 melta guns, and an Asp. Champ with a powerfist and an Icon of Chaos glory to keep them in combat if you do fail. (could add in plasmas if you want or flamers against hordes in place of the melta guns). Give them rhinos as well so they can comfortably get into combat or get to objectives. (around 230-250 points each)
I'd remove the land raiders they are good as troop carriers but there are better combinations for heavy support, the Autocannon, Las Sponsoon Predator tank is a good option and provides tastier targets for enemy heavies over your transports, could either add 2 of these (130 points each)
Or you could add a couple of defilers and rain battle cannon hell on people, or add in some obliterators because of their versatility.
Then could probably add in the Karmoon Terminator Special, which always returns its points.
Pretty simple, run everything forward in the rhinos, and join kharn to the 'serker squad, use smoke. Next turn you can either disembark move shoot and/or assault, or you can move the rhino again, remember to use them as moving cover, they block LoS quite nicely. Then just provide cover fire with your heavy choices.
Apparently its a top tier army, according to someone i play with, who came 4th in the GT, i did wonder why, but can see (as long as i go first) how it can be really devastating, going to there back line in the LR, and killing everything #
With your advice winter, i like Defilers, they are fun (Although are prone to being targeted and die or losing cannon or something first turn)
Predators, just seem to do the same, it must be because i mostly use only 1 or 2 tanks, in a lot of my 1500 points, i will spend 2/300 points on Terminators, normally have a lot of points in Bezerkers, but i just don't like the CSM that much, they always seem to be infective, it must be how i use them, but i just don't like them that much.
I wouldn't mind doing a Lash list, apart from my Oblit rolls are always poor, last game i played using 1, against Tau, it did not die till turn 6, but every turn i shot the Hammer Head with it, and failed, never penetrated, if i had of done, he had the 4+ cover save upgrade thing.
I like the idea of using Plagues, Noise, Bezerkers and 1k sons, but that is almost 1000pts or more when making them a each a decent squad.
and what is the karmoon terminator special?
4 termies, with 3 combi-meltas and a H-Flamer
Lean and mean.
"Long live the Emperor!"
- a patient Chaos God
I always thouht it was 4 termies, with combi-plasmas, and then 1 with chainfist and heavy flamer
Yeah, that's the right one. Plasma's not melta's
Everyone is corrupted by Chaos, myself more than others!
