My new Slaanesh aligned 1500 point list. It has a few problems I haven't worked out yet. For instance, I'm thinking of combining and evening out the two squads of noise marines. It seems that an enemy could pick off either one quite easily. Also, I'm not sure if Meltas or Plasma Guns are better for the squads. Secondly, I think the raptors might be too expensive, and I'd really like another obliterator. Lastly, I only have one Heavy Support option in the Havocs... it doesn't seem like enough... plus I'm not sure if I should invest in Tank Hunters or not. My Noise Marines are really expensive, but I love the Slaanesh tactical advantage. I want my army to be fast and assaulty... and that kind of makes them expensive. Oh yeah, I don't think I have enough Daemons or a guaranteed delivery system... i'm using the raptors with MoCU at the moment. I only list Daemonettes in the list thus far, but I'd really like some Screamers or Furies as well.
This list will mainly be used to fight against a Godzilla list and a Ravenwing list. I'd appreciate some help in making this a bit stronger, as I am not satisfied with it as it stands.
HQ: Daemon Prince (187)
- MoS, Dreadaxe, Spiky Bits, CCW, Frags, D. Mut, Str, Res, Aura, Speed, Stat
Elite: Obliterator x2 (140)
Fast Attack: Raptors x6 with MoCU (256)
- 3 Meltas
- 1 AC with P. Fist and Bolt Pistol
Troops: Noise Marines x8 (CC - 213)
- 1 AC with P.Fist and Bolt Pistol
- 7 with CCW/BP
Noise Marines x8 (Assault - 227)
- 6 Sonic Blasters
- 1 Blastmaster
- 1 Melta Gun
Chaos Space Marines x6 with MoCU (Support - 115)
- 1 Lascannon
- 1 Plasma Gun
- 4 Bolters
Daemonettes x6 (90)
Daemonettes x6 (90)
Heavy Support: Havocs x7 with MoCU (185)
- 4 Autocannons
- 3 Bolters
Total: 1503 points
Again, I feel this list doesn't have enough "bang" for the "buck" if you will, in that I won't be able to take out a Godzilla list. Right now my game plan is to infiltrate everyone and get into assault as soon as possible, with the Raptors supporting or flanking and delivering daemons. I am not sure this is the best choice though, since he doesn't have any CC Fexes and I can stand back and shoot him all I want. I just think this list is quite expensive and doesn't have enough fire power. Thanks for any input!

Is this a typo? A dread axe is pretty much useless without daemonic stature. Do you mean dark blade?HQ: Daemon Prince (187)

Raptors are risky and expensive in 1500. Drop them for another obliterator, undivided CSM squad, and infiltrate on your lord if you don't give him stature.

Sorry, forgot to add Stature to the list. If I get rid of the Raptors, what should I use for Fast Attack? Bikes are just as expensive.
Alright, let's get started:
Just a thought: If you're really set on the statured prince, then you'd be better off with the Mark of Nurgle. Hold the phone now! Since you're plaing a Black Legion army, believe it or not you can actually get away with your primary h.q. having the MoN (mark o Nurgle) and still preserve the force organization chart. Just to clarify, in the B.L. army any non-daemon, non-vehicle units with a mark other than MoCU or a mark shared by your primary h.q. will be moved to an elite slot. Since you're only using one elite slot, and you only have two troop squads with MoS, these two squads become elite. Having the MoN opens up the Lord of Decay's armoury, which has a little gem known as the Manreaper. You could then drop d. mutation, which would free up points to take daemonic resilience (your prince really needs this ability bar none). It will enable him to withstand the counter attack brought on in c.c. Additionally, with the 5 init, you'll usually strike first, so you're not really taking advantage of the MoS ability. Of course, depending on the Bug build in your local environment, it might be nice to have the MoS ability.
