So I posted in the DE forums cause well thats who I play but now it seems my loyalty to Comarragh is being tested by the corrupting influences of my stepsons! One is Space marines, one Chaos space marines, and I have a little snotling running amok in my house!!! Well no, hes 10 so more Grot? (this part is copied from ork post...)
I have just a few questions for you
1. He has.... 2x boxes of 10 CSMs, 2x boxes of 5 Termies, 1x Defiler, and 1x Daemon prince.
2. How can we make the most of what he has with conversions and what not?
3. We plan to play 1k point games, is he going to be hurting? Can we make it competitive enough to beat his brothers? He wants a hard hitting army thus the termies and defiler. I know its not the best selection, but its his army and he lit up like it was christmas all over when we brought home his Daemon prince. He is hurting w/o any transports so I was thinking about stealing his loyalist brothers rhino (which he dosn't use) and converting it with some bits. Or am I better off buying the chaos one so I have even more bits?
4. Oh and he loves Nurgle so we have lots of conversions and green stuff ahead of us.

With the models you have 2x boxes of 10 CSMs, 2x boxes of 5 Termies, 1x Defiler, and 1x Daemon prince, some aspects of the chaos force are limited. I would suggest building the CSMs as two 10s with powerfist champion (you could convert a terminator one if some diversity) and Icon bearer, one squad should use two meltaguns and the other two plasma guns.
The terminators can Deep Strike. A common and highly effective setup is known as the 'Karmoon special' which uses combi plasma guns and a heavy flamer. You will need to convert the combi plasma guns, I have a guide on how to do this HERE. Id suggest using one squad with combi plasma guns, the heavy flamer and a powerfist, the other with some combi meltaguns.
The daemon prince and the defiler are restricted with there options for building. Id let him loose on them.
Any more questions about building any list or conversions you can PM if you like.
2x boxes of 10 CSMs, 2x boxes of 5 Termies, 1x Defiler, and 1x Daemon prince.
Is not a bad start at all...
for cheese I'd take a lash prince but for Nurgle you could make the prince into a horde control monster with Wings MoN and Nurgles Rot.
So you would end up with
2 slogging 10 man squads meltas on one and plasmas on the other. recommend IoK on the meltas and IoCG on the plasmas or maybe IoK here too champs with pfists.
Karmoon special is great but depending on who you are hurting there are other variants of it.
2 champs with pfists 3 regulars with combiplasma, one of the champs with IoT (this is for MC bashing)
2 champ with pfist 1 with IoK and reaper autocannon 3 regulars with combi plasmas (for MeQ bashing)
5 regulars 3 combiplasmas 1heavyflamer IoS (swarm management)
I prefer defilers with all extra CCW so you can use it as a dredd that doesnt go crazy and eat your own troops with the option of using it as arty fire support.
the first thing I would buy to expand this would be a rhino and a box of 1k sons.
have fun and good luck
Thanks for the responses!
I am just a little worried about short changing him in the assembly process, and want to make sure before we start gluing that we are making the most of what he has. Awseome tips!
It could be a lot worse. It has a good deal of what are the meat and taters of chaos. CSM and a Daemon Prince are not to laugh at. For me, I would opt for rhinos over termies at such a low game point level and would suggest in the purchasing of at least three rhinos or three Vindicators as you get a Dozer blade and extra armor for a couple more bucks.
