Hey guys, I thought I would just share a list with you and see what kind of feed back you guys have for this list going against Black Templars at my FLGS.
Sorc., MoS, Lash -125
10x Chaos Termies., IoT, 5xTwin Lightning Claws, 1 Power Fist, 2 Heavy Flamers, 3 Combi-Melta - 420
7x Zerkers, Champ w/Power Fist -187
8x Zerkers, Champ w/Power Fist, Icon, Rhino -248
8x Plague Marines, Champ w/Power Fist, Icon, Rhino -264
6x 1k Sons, Asp. Sorc. w/Warptime, Icon, Rhino -240
Land Raider w/Daemonic Possesion -240
The Zerkers without a transport are going in the Land Raider with Abaddon, I am not sure at this point if I want the Sorc. with them also or with the other Berzerkers in a Rhino. I know most people this Abaddon is overcosted but he is fun to use and I don't normaly play 2k point games at my FLGS. If I put the Sorc in the Land Raider I can most likely get a turn 1 assault (even better if I go 2nd) as I can move 12" disembark 2" Lash a unit 2d6" and charge 6", giveing me a range of 22-32". But the benefit of the Sorc in the Rhino is that he can cast lash and stay safe in the Rhino while the Zerkers leave to mess some stuff up.
I know my opponent does not have much ant-armor say for a DDM, Vindi, and TH/SS termies in a Crusader.
Looking forward to comments good/bad. :-)
Your opponent doesn't have much anti-armour you say...well neither do you...a single lascannon shot each turn is what you have...
Your plague marines doesn't have special weapons...they like plasma guns...
That termie unit is awfully big and just waiting for his vindi to eat them up...
Nothing wrong with abaddon or zerkers, but the army lacks some heavy firepower options...
win some, lose some
I will be deep strikeing the Termies. and pop any armor that they are near with the combi-melta, this will also make the combi-meltas in the unit the ones I will allocate most wounds too due to their diminished usefulness. PMs don't really need special weapons in this list as the BTs will be chargeing headlong into my lines, they are there to accept a charge and have a hidden powerfist if needed to take out a rhino, landraider, or dreadnaught if needed, I have the 1kSons to fill the role of any special weapons with AP3 Bolters. No need for Plasma as there only usefull target would be TH/SS termies that would get a 3++ anyway so I will just focus on his softer troops. With 5, Str8 Melee guys on the table I don't see a ton of reasoning to get alot of anti-armor shooting when both our armies perform best in CC. Most likely the Land Raider will sit back turn 1 and/or 2 to take out a Rhino or Vindi then charge in after to clean house. This will really depend on my opponents deployment if i go for the turn 1 assault or hold back and shoot the lascannons.
Im not a chaos player but i think this games sounds really intresting. So let us know how you get on.
