Hey there i had a friendly game against my brother last weekend against the Necrons & i just wanted to know what you guys think about this list & if there is anything that you guys would change in it?
Here it is:
Daemon Prince + Wings + Mark Of Tzeentch + Warp Time + Bolt Of Tzeentch = 200 (because i like Tzeentch hehe)
Chaos Lord + Terminator Armour + Mark Of Khorne = 130
4 Terminator Champions + Mark Of Khorne Reaper + Autocannon = 225
2x 14 Chaos Marines + Champion + Power Fist + Plasma Gun =560
2x 9 Thousand Sons + Sorcerer + Doom Bolt = 600 (because they're favorite unit lol)
- Land Raider + Dozer Blade + Daemonic Possession + Havoc Launcher = 260
- 2x Rhino's + Dozer Blade + Daemonic Possession + Havoc Launcher = 150
3 Obliterators = 225
Defiler = 150
Oh & also i want to know if this is a legal list or if i was running it wrong as i have only played CSM's 3 times (sadly enough... sigh) & i am not used to them yet, any & all help is well appreciated thanx.
The DP is very expensive and still dies to massed bloter fire. I would think about loosing the Bolt
The landraider, i assume, is transporting the CSM unit, but the CSM unit has a plasma gun, so you are using an assault transport you have equipped them for shoting, drop the plasma for 2 flamers or find 5 points more for two melta guns.
You have done the same thing with the terminators. Given them the Icon of Khorne which is a bonus for assaulting but given them a reaper which is for shooting, specialise your units more because if your shooting with the termies your wasting the 30 point Icon, if your assaulting your wasting the 25 point reaper. Now the thing with the Icon is it costs a terminator and you need to way up the extra 2 attacks you get from the Icon worth the extra body?
Are you aware you have spent 120 points on vehicle upgrades? Between Bolt, the reaper and the plasma gun thats about 200 points allocted in what i would say is a waste (but the possesion on the 1Ksons Rhino's are fluffy) These points could be giving the lord paired lightning claws for an extra attack with rerolls to wound, Meltas for your CSM units, and a chain fist, heavy flamer and combi weapons (melta i suggest but plamsa is also good) for the terminators and maybe some change (still keeping the possession on the rhinos for the 1kSons)

Yeah that was one of the things that failed in my list v.s the Necrons last weekend, the 2 Plasma Guns i had in each squad both missed horribly on 1's & then i failed both my armor saves horribly on 1's as well & i was thinking about the Melta Guns & the Daemon Prince, instead of the Tzeentch one (that never really did much... that game either) would it be better to change him for a Khorne Prince or Nurgle Prince & if so which one would be better? Oh & i will take the Reaper Cannon off the Termi's thanx again.
Common load outs for Daemon Princes are:
unmarked, wings, warptime
Slannesh, wings, Lash
Marked Tzeentch or Nurgle, Wings and Warptime.
Tzeentch is better v power fists, melta, plasma ect
Nurgle is better v's massed small arms fire (bolter, lasguns ect)
Same price and just to your preference.
I personally like to use the first two @ a similar price to a Defiler they are cheep and perform well.
Khorne Princes are not worth it for +1 attack, and unmarked one with warptime will perform better.
