I'm currently playing in a campaign at a local shop that started last Sunday. I used my current 1250 list (1250-1500 CSM Tournyish list)http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/chaos-army-lists/175543-1250-1500-csm-tournyish-list.html and walked through my first two games without many problems (other than the tyranid player adding and inch or two to each movement). Game 1 Kill points against guard, which was pretty easy. And Game 2 Capture and Control against tyranids only lost two rhinos, 2 termi's and a couple berzerkers (over 6 rounds) but used Lash to keep his Genestellers out of the game.
Although the list worked well I found in both games my Rhinos were obvious targets that stuck out for the ememies heavy weapons. So this is a Re-Work of that list to give them more targets to choose from and possibly let my rhinos live a little longer.
Deamon Prince + Wings + MoS + LoS
Total = 155
4 X Termi + Heavy Flamer + (3)Combi Plas + (1)Champ W Chain Fist
Total = 165
10 X CSM + 1 plasma + 1 lascannon + AC + PF
7 X Berzerkers + SC (Power Weapon) + Rhino + Personal Icon
7 X Berzerkers + SC (Power Fist) + Rhino + Personal Icon
Total = 664
2 X Oblits
1 X Predator + Heavy Bolters + Havoc Launcher
Total = 265
Total = 1249
Elites: Good. The champ upgrade is a bit of an extravagence but why not. you could get an icon instead but normally I wait until a unit is 5 strong for an icon to be worth it.
Troops: CSMs should take 2 meltas and a rhino with IoCG too. otr just take 7 PMs with 2 plasmas or 6-8 noise marines with all sonics. These squads can deliver fire support from footslogging. Berserkers are fine.
Heavy: Oblits are good. Pred is ok but has no antitank. A good all rounder is AC+2LC.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
The plan for the Predator was to make up for my lack of shooting becuase of the berzerkers. It could be used to knock down Gene squads, pop rhinos, hit Orc waves and still kill some marines. But I've never used one in a game ( have to swap the 2LC sponsons off of my current pred) so I'm not too sure how well it will do.
Is a Rhino with 2 meltas going be as affective as a 10 wound lascannon? (never done a drive by rhino melta combo before)
Is 3 LC's enough in 1250? I know some people go by 1 per 500 but other do a 1 per 300.
