    2000 point unconventional CSM for this weekend

    Here is an unconventional Chaos Marine list, I'm going to use this weekend. I've included 15 Lesser Daemons and 6 of the greatly under-appreciated Chaos Spawn. The list looks like it will be a hoot to run; plus it's list that I have wanted to try out ever since I got the tide of Spawn Apoc box.!

    Wings, Warptime, Doom Bolt

    Elites
    4 Terminators with 3 combi-plasma, Heavy Flamer, 1 powerfist, Icon of chaos glory
    160

    Troops
    10 Chaos Space Marines with 2 meltaguns and icon of chaos glory
    Aspiring Champion with power fist

    I'm not sure If I should keep the PM's or use a squad of Zerkers instead. As the list has a real up in your face feel to it.

    I've come up with an alternate list in which I dropped a spawn and the LD's to add a Zerker squad in a rhino. This is the list I'm gonna use tomorrow.

    If you want this list to be an "in your face" list, I'd take out the Chaos Spawn and replace them with a squad of 8 Raptors w/ 2 Meltaguns. This being that, despite the fast attack spot in the Force Organization Chart, Chaos Spawn are very slow (and purposeful). You could also replace the Spawn with a squad of 10 Chosen w/ 4 Flamers, as outflanking/infiltrating Chosen weilding flamers can be quite intimidating.

    I think you missed the point of the list; I purposefully added the spawn to the list. Usually I would have a second Terminator squad in place of the spawn.

    I saw that you purposely added the Chaos Spawn in, but my advice is don't. More often than not you'll stand there wondering why you wasted 200 pts when you could have fielded Termies/Raptors/Chosen instead.

    It's a very rush list. I would suggest switching the Terminator's Plasma w/Melta. The nurgle is great for objective holding and they can still be in your face. Have you thought about an outflanking unit of chosen?

    Thanks for the advice. I get it you don't like Chaos spawn; that doesn't mean that they cannot be made to work.

    I have no misconceptions about the power level of the Chaos spawn. I won't wonder about or lose any sleep over the performance of the spawn. The list is purely written to try something different, and not be the end all and be all of competitive lists.

    I think the Plague Marines are actually a better idea than Berzerkers. You have enough speed and you'll probably want at least one unit to hold an objective. PM's are a good choice. Put up a battle report when you try your army; I'm curious to see how things turn out.
