    I'm assuming he joins the Chosen squad since he doesn't have Daemonic Speed... is that intentional? Chaos HQs tend to fare better when left to their own devices, but with backup nearby. Being stuck to a retinue only serves to slow them down in most cases.

    I would drop Master-Craft and take Daemonic Speed. First turn charges are too good to pass up, especially on Close Combat machines like Chaos HQs. Oh, and put some Frag Grenades onto him.

    From a gameplay standpoint, this is a bad choice. From a fluff perspective, it's good. This squad offers you nothing that a standard, cheaper troops choice can't offer you. You would save 18 points by simply making this a troops choice and sticking the HQ in that squad. You don't even have a power weapon/'Fist on the lone Champion...

    Fair. The Melta Guns just don't match up well with Bolters. They have varying rates of fire, and different ranges. They don't complement well. Pistols and Melta guns go together much better, as do Plasma Guns and Bolters. I suggest swapping either the basic weaponry and going with an assault unit, or going Plasma and making a fire support unit. If you go with fire support, drop the frags. You might consider dropping them anyways.

    Why the single L-Claw? Seems like an odd choice for a Champion to have. Two attacks a round is hardly enough to scare any opponent, especially for the price you're paying for those two attacks. I would rather have a power weapon + Pistol. Cheaper price, and 3 attacks is going to be better than 2 attacks with rerolls to wound.

    Very nice. Consider dropping some Melta Guns in for quick mobile Tank Removal. Not really necessary, however.

    Wonderful squad. Only one caveat - without Tank Hunters, the Autocannons are only good against AV 12 and lower vehicles. AV13 and 14 will give them nightmares. If you keep the Melta Guns in the troops, and put a couple into the Raptors, you shouldn't have any worries. I promise that you'll come to love these guys, and wish you had more. Autocannons look bad on paper, but are extremely versatile weapons in game.

    Quick question

    Are you using the chaos rules for the soul drinkers so that you can use demonic abilites etc that are close to their mutations in the story line? Cause fluff wise the soul drinkers are renegade marines but they aren't chaos marines. They just hate the imperium.

    nice army though, be cool to see a picture of it once you get it all painted. I like all the books on em, so it would be cool to see a good army based on em.

    I didnt intentionally mean they were the proper soul drinkers. i just thought the name sounded cool, when i heard it from a friend. ive changed there names to "The Emperors Swords"

    Im using the Chaos list so i can represent the 1st company of the chapter. see my post in order of the shadowy flame for info on em...
