I'm still a noob but having finally got some firepower in my army I find myself having to leave out some troops. I plan to run the following 1500 pointer in my next few (semi-competetive) games but would like to know if i've missed something obvious or if it's just not very effective. Any feedback offered is greatly appreciated.
My main thoughts on why I chose this build:
4 Troops choices for objective hunting - Plagues will go for the least contested objectives whilst the Berserkers (with Lord) try to remove the enemy from another.
Defilers will attempt to set up crossfires/killzones by deploying in centre and wide on one flank, (with my Rhinos in between, depending on cover) whilst the dread will be kept well clear one the other flank to avoid any unfortunate accidents.
The sorceror will likely ride with one of the Plague squads.
Sorceror, MoS, LoS
Chaos Lord, MoK, Power weapon, Plasma pistol
8 Khorne Berserkers, Icon, Fist Champ, Rhino
8 Khorne Bloodletters
7 Death Guard, Icon (no champ), Rhino
7 Death Guard, 2 Meltas, Fist Champ, Rhino
Dreadnought, Plasma Cannon, Heavy Flamer, DCCW
2 x Standard fit Defilers (RA,HF, 2DCCW)
Units that didn't make it:
5 chosen Meltaguns in a Rhino (to outflank and pop tanks)
5 Terminators, RA, 2x combi-Melta, PF, CF (deploying with the LR or via deepstrike)
Land Raider w Havoc
9 Thousand Sons, Doombolt Sorc. (handy against MEQs and ArdBoy Orks, but expensive for IG)
I have a DP under construction (need wings) which will replace the Lord against IG (when ready). Thinking either LoS, or Tz+Warp+BoC 155/200 -- Other build suggestions welcome.
Honestly, if you want to be fluffy, drop the second squad of Plague Marines, and add the T-Sons. With the extra points add 2 melta to the first Plague Marine squad.
For your Daemon Prince, I would build him as such" Wings, MoS, Lash
