    HQ - Lord with term armor and a pair of lighting claws
    T- 10 CSM 1 plasma gun and 1 heavy bolter
    T- 7 CSM 1 plasma gun
    Heavy support- 1 Obliterator

    Hello, and welcome to the forums

    I'm moving your thread to the Chaos Army List section, which can be accessed at the top of the CSM homepage.

    Looking at your build, it looks like what we'd expect from a loyalist chapter. Also, there's very little synergy. How do you plan on delivering your HQ into battle? Deep Strike? If so, you'll need at least one Icon in your troops to prevent scatter. Second, your list won't fair well against either ranged or close combat opponents; that is, you've basically taken a bunch of bolters and a few prime weapons. How about something like this:

    Daemon Prince- 125
    *Icon of Slaanesh
    *Lash of Submission

    Chaos Marine Squad- 165
    *7x CSMs with the Icon of Glory
    **1x melta gun
    **1x champion with fist and combi-melta

    Chaos Marine Squad- 165
    *7x CSMs with the Icon of Glory
    **1x melta gun
    **1x champion with fist and combi-melta

    This still leaves you with 45 points to spare. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the heads up. Maybe with that 45 points put a rhino out there and then what? I still got 10 points left? Im also out numbered the armies that im going to be fighting double what i have.

    Daemon Prince- 125
    *Icon of Slaanesh
    *Lash of Submission

    Chaos Marine Squad- 165
    *7x CSMs with the Icon of Glory
    **1x melta gun
    **1x champion with fist and combi-melta

    Khorne Berzerkers 202
    *7 Berzerkers
    **1x Champ with melta bombs
    **Rhino

    I would still have 8 points left any advice on this one.

    Daemonprince with lash costs 135. I think Rabbit may be referring to the sorceror for 125.

    I would take a 10 man CSM unit with 2 meltas and PF and IoK or IoCG. The second troop choice I would take 5 Noise marines with sonic blasters or 6 PMs with a plasma gun.

    Ah, right. Math fumble. I meant 135.

    Tynix14748, your Zerker champion shouldn't have just melta bombs. Best to drop them and maybe even the rhino too. Then take a power weapon. Remember, you can always Run to the enemy. With the Lash, you end up making fairly good time.

    If ur looking for a rough 500 point army for ur opponents try

    Lash Prince with wings -155
    Defiler - 150
    2x 5 man CSM squads - 150

    This gives u 45 points to play with. I love playing this list although u just have to make good use of cover for ur troops.

    thats more of an annihilation list. If he's playing objectives, that list would be trampled over, especially since he already said he's outnumbered.

    OP, I second rabbit's list. I recommend avoiding putting heavy weapons in your troops as they need to hold still for it to be fired.

    Actually I've played this list quite a few times with objectives and it does very well.

    Against nids and guard you may want a large number of shots to thin them out, and you will also need to be ready for a MC and a tank or 2.

    Here is what I would run.
    Lash Sorc. -125
    10x CSM with 2 Melta guns & Champ with Power Weapon - 200 *edit*
    7x Noise Marines with Sonic Blasters - 175

    The noise marines should be in cover and should not move is possible inorder to dish out their heavy 3 shots. The CSM should be in the mid ground to rapidfire bolters, and intercept any MCs the Nids may have and Tanks the Guard may have. I would put the Sorc in with the CSM, this will give you the ability to increase their close combat threat range. Don't forget you can lash MCs to you, shot them with meltaguns, and pistols then charge (they don't like force weapons!).
