Right, i am going to buy a box of 10 CSM and the Night Lords conversion pack, and make a squad of 10 CSM and paint them up nice, and have them as my first fully painted and build squad (the rest of my army is either all black, or partly painted)
What is the best way to run a 10 man squad of CSM, i mostly use Zerkers as my basic troops, and throw in Plagues now and then, but unless i use them as chosen (i like to outflank 5 Melta guns now ). What upgrades are best ect, how do you use a squad of 10 CSM ???
10 man sqaud with 2 plasmaguns is often a good buy.
A new box comes with one Plasma gun doesn't it? i think i have a spare from my Havocs anyway, is it worth them having a Rhino do you think?
Oh yes, do give them a Rihno.It makes the CSM much more efective.
CSM 10 man boxes are notoriously short on heavy weapons. Bitz places like the warstore or bitzbox sells them separately , but trading is also preferred if you have friends that play SM or CSM. Extra bitz lying around have been converted too, there are a couple guides floating out there about that subject.
You can now buy 5 separate plasma or meltaguns from GW, though they are original Space Marine design. but that's not something a few spikes can't change..
- And I run my 2k army with 10 meltaguns divided to 4 squads total, although I might give the plasma some love in the near future..
And now to erase your memory of this entire conversation.
How many flamers do you get from a box of CSM and what icons do you get as well? I got the chaos megabox and what is included is very basic, no icon bearer.
I like to run 2 of the same special weapon in a rhino.
"They say the Darkness consumes you. They don't say what happens after It's done."
10 Marines, Champion with powerfist, Icon of Chaos Glory and a Rhino is one of the best combos out there
It's true: the 10-man chaos space marine squad in rhino is one of the best units in the game. It might not be the best, but, if it's not, it's very close.
I play these units almost to the exclusion of the rest of the codex, and I play them in exactly three varieties:
10 marines, 2 meltas, champion w/ powerfist, IoCG, rhino : 255 points
(this is my favorite)
10 marines, 2 flamers, champion w/ powerfist, IoCG, rhino : 245 points
10 marines, 2 plasmas, champion w/ power weapon, IOCG, rhino : 255 points
I only play smaller units in very low point games--750 or 500 or such. I also almost never lose. The big mechanized chaos squads make for a very strong army.
