Hello vile spawn of the warp. My buddy ran into some cash issues (legal stuff that he honestly didn't have anything to do with, but whutch ya gonna do?), as such I am currently holding onto his CSM until he can get the money to buy them back from me. It is about 2k points of fleshy, gooey, nurgally goodness, and I'll be the first to admit I have no fething idea how to create a decent list from it, as I am used to soft squishy units with super fast/elite goodness. (read eldar). As such I was wondering if you followers of the great enemy could help me create an army themed around he who holds the goddess of health.
For models I've got a fantasy lord on horse (counts as lord on daemonic steed with daemon weapon), Typhus who I can field as alord in termie armor, a Daemon Prince, I beleive around 60-80 Plauge Marines, 2 dreadnoughts, 5 terminators, and 2 rhinos.
So far I've been running Lord with Daemon Weapon terminator armor, MoN, 2 rhinos filled with plauge marines with champ and power fist, and the dreadnought. Really I am wondering what the best loadouts I can give terminators and dreadnoughts are, and about a 1.5k army. Anychance anyone could help me out?
1.5K huh? Well with the amount of models you said, playing nurgle, you could go much higher than 1500. But w/e.
At this level of points, you want some anti tank, and after that, just trust in the boys in pus/boils/rashes.etc.
For the anti tank at range, lascannons is all chaos offers, so try get a predator or some obliterators. If you are not planing to ever get more models for chaos, and you want to use only what you have now, try out 7 man plague squads with two meltaguns and PF champions with personal icons. The icons are there for your terminators, which should be outfitted one of two ways
4Terminators with 4 combi plasmas and 1 PF.
(They may have to be converted, use obliterator sprues,(another reason to get obliterators =D )) This squad is tried and tested to almost always earn back their points cost.
5Terminators with Heavy Flamer and a bunch of combi flamers or combi meltas, a chainfist and a powerfist. ( basically, one squad beats all, with Deep Strike, they can do whatever needs doing the most.
Around 200 points ( dont go more unless IoN )
Dreds are bad for chaos ( unstable and no drop pods ), but if you want to use them, heavy bolters and heavy flamers are not expensive , and wont hurt your other units which are in rhinos. Also if they go crazy at peak luck, you might get 6 HB shots and 2x flamer template at nearby units. But dont blame me if they fail, Chaos terminators are great and dreds are bad, and both are elite. Guess which one i usually take. Terminators. I have 16 of the beasts and I still could use some more
Also try an 8 man squad to walk it and cover some objectives near your zone, or at least to counter enemy movement in your half. Plasma guns are great with plague marines, especially when your in cover on an objective. You guys simply wont die, but whatever they shoot at, will.
Your HQ deep strikes too, hopefully near the other terminators.
Best of luck playing as Chaos *cough* best army out. Don't even bother going back to playing with those sissies in tightrope walking uniforms which main advantage is being too colourful and hearing with long ears. Only pussies use Toughness 8 walkers in an army. No, you don't need those silly salsadancers at all. Welcome to Chaos brother. Your stay shall be eternal, as will your service.
