    1500 Point Competitive List

    Hello, thought I'd try my hand at a 1500 point list. Tactics are basically roll the Plague Marines onto objectives and destroy/tie up anything in their way while the Raptors and Obliterators roam around and zap hard targets. Daemon Prince obviously would be assaulting other pricey HQ units. Let me know what you think.

    HQ:

    Daemon Prince (Mark Nurgle, Wings, Nurgle's Rot) 165

    Fast Attack:

    Raptors x5 (Meltagun x2) 120

    Troops:

    Plague Marines x7 (Champ w/ Power Fist, Personal Icon, Meltagun x2, Rhino) 261

    Plague Marines x7 (Champ w/ Power Fist, Personal Icon, Meltagun x2, Rhino) 261

    Plague Marines x7 (Champ w/ Power Fist, Personal Icon, Plasma Gun x2, Rhino) 271

    Plague Marines x7 (Champ w/ Power Fist, Personal Icon, Plasma Gun x2, Rhino) 271

    Heavy Support:

    Obliterators x2 150

    Total: 1499

    That is a lot of hard Troops. The problem I see is you have very little anti-tank that's not Melta, in fact only two models. Oblits can be very squishy and sometimes you will want to DS them, which can leave you vulnerable.

    What if you dropped a Troop unit and got a Defiler or Vindie, or even more Oblits? You'd still have 3 Rhinos, the Raptors and a DP which would draw fire. Defilers give you another CC threat and some good shooting, Vindies bust armor from a bit farther and draw fire while Oblit spam is going to be to many wounds and cover saves to justify killing off and letting your units get close.

    Not a huge change but I think it would be a very effective one regardless.

    That looks really good. I may think about using 3 squads of Oblits, one solo. Gives you more Reserve dice if you DS and better target selection. You gain a KP but your army is fine on those either way really.
