    EC army, upgrading from 1000 to 1500pts

    HI, im ugrading my army from 1000 to 1500pts, but i'm not sure on what to invest my money!! my first idea was a predator (LC sponsons, autocanon turret) and 2 more noise marines squads (equal to the ones i have, 1 for CC and other for fire suport), but a squad of bikes would be cool too, outflanking the enemy or going tank huntig with their meltas, can you give your opinion about this, or even give new ideas?!

    here is my current army:

    1000 Pts - CSM: Emperor's Children Army
    Slythus Legion

    I like your idea of more Noise marines!

    You look to have a solid 1000 point force!

    It might be worth adding a dreadnought. They can usually be very versatile, and some good anti-tank.

    Not sure about the predator. They aren't as good as you might think, because they can be easily avoided.

    A bike squad would be another good option - and fun to convert!

    Hope that helps!

    ok 6 more daemonettes.

    some bikes would be good or flying possessed or even terminators.

    basically just beef up more slaaneshi squads.

    indirect on the defiler. Unless you take a rhino for some possessed or w/e then its allowed to stay direct.

    I disagree with the dreadnought as this army is not designed for mobility. They basically sit their and shoot and infiltrate and summon, a dread would just get caught in the middle doing nothing.

    You may not have noticed but a dark blade costs the same pts as strength and a power weapon but gives an extra point of strength over these. Drop strength and use a dark blade. Also some combat drugs on the lord would be good.

    Overall an excellent creative army with a cheap lord. I''m impressed.

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    I don't find Slaaneshi Bikers to be worth their while. They never seem to accomplish much, but they would be good for daemon bombing I suppose.

    More Noise Marines is a fantastic idea. Some more fire support would be great; either a dreadnought like Robizzlesays, or a predator. Something to take out enemy armour ias a must, you seem to be seriously lacking in this respect. Yeah, blastmasters have a decent strength value, but I tend to use their other fire mode and hope to cause pinning on whatever unit draws their attention.

    If you take biker remember to outfit as many as possable with sonic blasters... at 2pts a bike you cant go wrong.

    However as formentioned if you want something fun... terminators or possessed

    However how i would fill out 1500pts if i were you

    I would start by doubling up your Pain and toture squads. thats 325 on your way to 500... fill out the other 175, with a preditor as you mentioned.

    I much love preditor over a dreadnaught. At 2K i field both but anything less and i would use a preditor over the dread. At a compairable price a preditor has more firepower and is 3x 'arder to kill. And fills the roll your army need much better.

    Take the darkblade as suggested. If you have any spair points try to get infiltrate or rhino for 1 or both your Pain (Close combat) squads. Basicly some other alternate form of transportation to get them into HtH faster.

    your points per peice of plastic is 31.25 which is pretty good for an EC army
    What would add to this army would make it 33.33.



    EDIT: I Just Realized your Close combat squads already have infiltrate. good boy.
    I also Think, indrect fire is better then Mutated hull on defilers. But that is just me.

    i think i've reached a conclusion, im gonna go with the predator (full with LCs), tool up my Ltn with a dark blade and double my noise marines squads (but the new CC unit will get a melta), all for your replys!
