I've been away from LO for... several years, and the game as much time as well. I'm coming back with a new account because I forgot the pass to my old one and that e-mail doesn't exist anymore ><.
In anycase, I have ~3k in Chaos, but my problem is that I have 0 rhinos. Is there any way to make this army work without spending 200$ on rhinos?
My army consists of an obscene amount of berserkers, csm, several havocs of all flavors, some raptors, and some termies. I'll get a more detailed list up at some point.
Its cetainly do able but whether it'll work is a completely different story. I mean someone I know ran two daemon princes and 3 full squads of marines that worked well...ish. Put down what you've got and I'll see what I can do.
One shall stand, and one shall fall.
This is about all I have. However, a lot of these models are in a horrible state of repair, painting, and puddying, and there are some that I would never let them see the light of Games Day. My pre-pubescent painting skills were terrible (not that they’re any better now).
I’m not aiming for competitions, but the local store, and with friends, maybe.
Keep in mind that some of these guys have multiple uses- I.e. my chosen can be Aspiring Champions, my csm can serve as meat-shields for havocs.
I have a couple of Icons as well, atm they are Tzeentch and Slaanesh.
20 Regular CSM (I can most likely build another few)
I have access to another melta, plasma (probably more than one plasma), and flamer, but I think I lack the bodies to do so.
‘Zerkers (Now you can tell I used to run World Eaters)
39 Regulars (I have more of them lying around somewhere… should even it out to 48, including champions… That’s what I used to run… when they still had fleet ><)
2 Skull Champion w/ Pfist
1 Skull Champ w/ PW (He can double as a lord with wings, because I gave him wings (I did a lot of converting, and while it wouldn’t make sense as a Skull Champion, it’s still usable, right)
1 w/ Combi-Flamer and PW
1-Reaper Autocannon and Pfist
1 Paired LC
2 with PW and Combi-Bolter
1 w/ PFist and combi-bolter
1 w/ combi-flamer and a missing arm (could put in a fist or weapon, although I think this was my Icon Bearer. I think I gave them tzeentch, but I cannot remember. With this amount of pfists, Slaanesh is rather pointless. Khorne would be nice, as would Nergal.)
I am fairly certain that I have another pair of LC lying around, as well as I can probably search through ~ 20 lbs of bits for the Heavy Flamer on the termi. Don’t know about other combi-weapons. Some of my models are the old metal ones from 3rd Edition. I don’t remember if the Terminator sprues had other combi-weapons on them ,although I couldn’t imagine why not. With some work I might be able to find some real combi-weapons, if not, I can cut and paste all of my leftover plasma pistols to the bottom of combi-bolters. I have both in semi-decent supply.
5 w/ Power Weapons
2 w/ Pweapon and plasma pistol
1 with Power Fist and Plasma pistol
1 With Power Fist
12 (Why? I did a lot of converting and am using some of my older models. Also, I think I could fudge a couple of my winged guys into being raptors if need be. I did it with one of them)
AC w/ Twin LC (can double as a lord)
7 Regular raptors
1 w/ Plasma Pistol (Can be replaced)
(I used to have one with a flamer but it disappeared. I may replace that flamer at some point when I find it.)
2 Sorc in Power armour
1 Termie Sorc with Combi-Melta (Can be replaced with combi bolter)
1 DP with Wings
Kharn the Betrayer
1 Termie Lord
1 Missile Launcher
4 Heavy Bolters
I’ve a friend whose coercing me into playing, and he plays SM so that is my main opponent. I have several sprues with stuff lying on them, and a few small boxes of bits.
I don’t know how I could roll these without serious rhinos, but I’m a little broke for the next 9 months so… if there is any way to make this work... If not, then I have to start saving...

I'll try my best to make it work, but if its just marines your gonna play then it should be pretty easy.
Daemon Prince with wings, mark of tzeentch and warptime 175pts
Sorcerer with mark of slaanesh and lash of submission 125pts
10 Chaos Space Marines inc two melta guns, icon of tzeentch and a champ with a power fist 250pts
10 Chaos Space Marines inc two flamers, icon of slaanesh and a champ with a power weapon 210pts
8 Chaos Space Marines with a melta gun 130pts
10 Khorne Bezerkers inc a champ with a power weapon 240pts
5 Chosen inc 5 plasma guns 165pts (I know you said you might not have the bodies or the plasma guns but i'm sure your friend will let you model rep them. Theres a bits pack on the GW website which inlcudes 5 plasma guns)
5 Terminators inc mark of khorne, 2 with a combi flamer, 1 champ with dual lightning claws, and 1 with a power fist and 1 with nothing 220pts
Defiler with a reaper auto cannon and extra ccw
5 Havocks inc 4 autocannons 155pts
5 Havocks inc 3 lascannons 180pts
2000pts on the dot. This list should get you far but eventually I think you'll have to give in to GWs wicked ways and buy some rhinos. Obliterators are also very good for a foot slogging list. I hope this list works well with you!
One shall stand, and one shall fall.
As it stands right now, METAL BOXES are just too helpful. I've finally conceded to allowing THREE of the cursed things in my force, just to deliver my Doom Sirens to a place where they can do the most service to Slaanesh. scilentone's list is perfectly doable and should serve you fine with the right footslogging tactics.
I really need to focus on a single army...
Orkz: 3000 pts. Slaaneshi Chaos: 2500 pts. Ultramarines: 1250 pts. Necrons: 1000 pts.
Eldar: 1000 pts. Tau: 1000 pts. Dark Angels: 550 pts. Grey Knights: 450 pts
To be honest, hit Ebay and buy the olde pattern Rhino models that no one else wants. They're still 'legal' models. I use 'em all the time.
You really need Rhinos!
Yeah, you go with no mech you are so dead. You'll be tabled before you hit the enemy lines.
I find this thread really interesting as I'm running several 1000-points lists without Rhino's atm and they all do well. With diverse enemies, it is the strategy that counts.
Usually I run the following:
10 Berzerkers with Pfist-champ
10 CSMs with flamer/plasma gun, IoCG, champ
10 CSMs with flamer/melta gun, IoCG, champ
8 Havocs with 4 missile launchers, IoCG
Ive used this list against Orks (more than 60 models in his army), a horde of Nids (also more than 60), Space Marines (MEQ), and Grey Knights ("horde"-style) and got more wins than losses against all of them.
However, when the battle exceeds the 1000 points limit, then I agree on using Rhino's. You really want some extra protection and extra mobility.
Innovation suffuses this hobby like a tea bag in the boiling water of play.
