Just re-starting my Chaos Army, I have the following minis and have limited experience with Chaos, how would you use them? Particulaly the possessed.
1 Lord, Steed, Power weapon
10 Tactical/Chosen, plasma gun.
8 Lesser Deamons (Doom imp minis XD)
1 Greater Deamon (Doom Hell Knight mini XD)
They are all painted in the Khorne colour scheme, and the Tactical squad leader and Possessed leader can have an Icon of Khorne if they wish. The Lord can have the Mark of Khorne if he wishes.
Also, what should I get next, I was thinking, a Vindicator, or Terminators. Thank you!
PS: I cannot recomend the Doom mini's enough as Chaos deamons! You get loads of them in a DOOM boardgame for about £20 and they look quality once painted, I'll put some pics up if you like....
I'd say grab more troops. That way, you could have a 2 squads of Zerkers, and still have a base of troops to work with. Get rhinos for both the Zerker squads. And the Possesed squad... they are WAY too expensive to march across the board getting shot at. Personally, depending on the board set up, I would split the CSMs into 2 squads of 5, hold the objectives with them, then drive the possesed and Zerkers into the enemies face at top speed. The lord with a steed... that's hard to account for, since he can't be mounted in a Rhino with the Zerkers (Where he would do the MOST good.) Maybie stick him in a CSM squad, one that you think the enemy might make a grab for?
Also, yes, I would like to see the minis
20 berzerkers walking down the path will get beaten half to death so fast I think, as useless as they seem to work for me cos I roll like a... bad person at rolling - others are terrified of them for good reasons.
Separate into 2 squads with a rhino and a combi melta maybe for the hell of it, or flamer, as my combi meltas are all yet to HIT anything
That's my input
EDIT: but that's not all! Possessed might work better as 2 squads, I prefer to have 2 of any squad that relies on luck rolls like possessed, chosen, daemons, so if one doesn't come in at the right time, I have another spare or if it comes at the wrong time or gets the wrong daemonkin, wrong table edge, I always have another one and its also good to keep the enemy guessing when they will happen to come out.

How to use posessed:
Option 1. In a word, don't. They cost more than a berzerker but more often than not are much less effective. This is largely due to the fact that you don't know what they are capable of until after they are deployed and that the champion has no option to take any sort of power weapon. They will destroy if you roll power weapons and be decent if you roll rending but otherwise they are complete waffle.
Option 2. I would just take them and mix them in with the berzerker squads in order to create an extra squad of berzerkers.
Other than that what the others said was pretty spot on, rhinos should be the next buy along with some things to distract your opponent so he doesn't fire at the rhinos. For a khornate theme try out a pair of Defilers with 2 extra dreadnought close combat weapons a piece. As soon as those hit the board your opponent won't see anything else.
