    IDK man you are spending 200 points on Icons... I know you want to kill yourself and all but thats still too much. If you still want to have fun with it you can drop the Icons down to IoS and save 120 points. For 120 Points you can grab a Chaos Dread with Missile Launcher and Plasma Cannon, keeping everything else the same and you get MORE PLASMA!

    Good point. I just figured the T5 would be good.

    Fabius Bile lists are fun. Good to see one in use here. A few pointers about your build:

    9 Man CSM Squads: You're paying 30 points for a champion + combi-plasma. Why not drop that entirely and take another CSM with a plasma gun? You gain permanent plasma weapon (i.e., not one-time use). Also, the champ is only granting you +1 attack in close combat, whereas having an additional CSM will provide the squad with two additional attacks. Of course, with ten men in a squad, you wouldn't be able to have either of your HQ choices riding alongside them. In any case, a champ with a combi-plasma isn't worth the price.

    Second, you have no way of dealing with enemy dreads and high toughness models in close combat. Give each champion a power fist. It's practically a default upgrade.

    Chosen: Minx/max chosen tend to get wiped out early on, even when in cover. Best to either drop them for the aforementioned changes or else alter the squad a bit. Here are two decent configurations:

    Chosen Squad #1
    *5x chosen with plasma guns
    *rhino

    Chosen Squad #2
    *8x chosen with IoK
    *2-3x special weapons
    ** champ with fist

    Side: I don't have my codex on me, but I believe Chosen are legal options for Bile's Enhanced Warrior. Just something to think about.

    Lord: Our Lords are ok, but nothing amazing. You get what you pay for. However, for five points less, you can take a Prince with Wings, Warp Time (or Lash of Submission), and MoS.

    Side: You don't need the icon on the Lord, since you have four among your troop choices.

    I didn't add the 10th man in the 9 man squads for the space for the HQs like you said. As for the PFs I was floating around with that idea since in combat they would kind beef it w/out power weapon of some kind of strength against Dreads. (Though mine would be S9-10...that's sounding better already) As for the chosen I've had very effective experience with the walking 5 plas. I'll keep the rhino in mind though. The reason for the lord was to give him the suicidal DW (Any 1 on 2d6). As for the icon I just had it in there to fill in points. Once I shuffle around for the PF I'll probably drop it along with his Plasma Pistol. Thanks for all the tips.
