I'm fairly new to warhammer 40k playing only a few times with some friends, mostly borrowed Orks and IG. Any way I've recently took the plunge and decided to go with Chaos Space Marines.
I was Intrigued by the noise marines so I started with them but the army didn't stay pure Slaanesh.
Main point it I just want to know if it looks good or has any crazy blaring flaws. any advice is welcome.
1000 point CSM army
HQ: Daemon Prince with wings, mark of Slaanesh and Lash.
Troops: 6 Noise Marines with Sonic Blasters and 1 Noise marine with a Blastmaster
8 Noise marines with bolters and 1 Noise Marine Champion with Doom Siren and Power Weapon.
8 Khorne Berzerkers
Heavy Support: Land Raider no upgrades
Total Points 978. so I have 22 points left. not too sure what to do with them.
So the point of the army in theory is to us landraider to move up the berzerkers into combat, when they reach some troops the Daemon can get in there and support them as well. The champion squad of noise marines with bolters can trouble shoot what ever they need with the champion himself geared for melee with the power weapon and doom siren.
The sonic unit is for getting into position and decimating, plus blast master can take out heavier units. Went with land raider because it more survivable and meaner then a rhino and can deal with big units. If the sonic unit is danger the daemon can use the lash to keep enemies away or put them in position for a template and blast weapons.
sorry about the double post.
maybe try and put a fist in that berzerker squad, also, a LR at 1k points? You could ditch that and equip all units with rhinos, a fisty champ in the zerker squad and maybe a oblit or two...
win some, lose some
I thought about the Rhinos but I was looking for more of a punch and more anti tank. Also sonics aren't that good in rhinos or so I'm told. Also I wasn't looking forward to painting all those Rhinos, but definetly a consideration. Also I felt I couldn't field enough obliterators to make them last, while the land raider would be pretty hard to kill.
looking for more punch? defilers or oblits would give you punch without sacrificing mobility for your whole army. a land raider at this points level is really hard to work with since you are wrapping 40%+ of your army in on package, that can be killed by almost any monstrous creature or good anti tank. diversify. get power fists in your units, get some oblits or a defiler, even a vindicator, or i had good luck with a lascannon on a dread at this points level. instead of having one unit that your opponent can be afraid of, give him 4 for the same cost.
sonic blasters do not do poorly in rhinos, just fails to give you as many shots. a footslogging unit with sonics can lay down a blistering rain of fire if they are in range, while only 2 can fire if a rhino moves 6" or less. but that only works when you are in range
you might try
hq dp with wings and lash
troops 1 8 berserkers with aspiring champion with power fist in rhino
troops 2 10 CSM with 2 flamers (works great with lash) with aspiring champion with power fist in a rhino
1 defiler or something similar
actually even if I dropped the LR and put in the rhinos, champ and fist I wouldn't have enough for 2 obliterators. I could have 1 however and have exactly 1 point left.
I like Prisoner37's list its just, I kind of dont like how generic it is. I've seen alot of army lists for chaos and its effective but pretty standard.
I'll probably incorporate ideas from both u guys just need to crunch some numbers. Also there will be noise marines since the only models I actually have at the moment are the noise marine box and sonic weapon pack, lol. plus I like them so I pretty much have to use them to some degree.
