    Obliberator?

    I recently just played my first game of 40k against tyranids and won. I had one 10 man army armed with bolters , a missile launcher and a plasma gun. With them staying high and above cover I destroyed 2 troops. I also had one other squad armed with bolters and chainswords and with these I destroyed a Carnifex in close combat but, the carnifex's rolls were very unlucky and only killed 2 men during assault. Once the game finished I realised I could replace the men with chainswords for a obliberator with no extra points added. I would like a Obliberator in my army because It has many powerful guns and from what happened in the game I can say guns are good against tyranids. Is this the right move to nerf the chainswords?

    Well you do need two troops choices, but that doesn't stop you from getting an obliterator aswell. What other units have you got?

    Replace? No. Add? Yes.

    Chaos Space Marines are good in both shooting close combat. Having both a bolter and bolt pistol & close combat weapon, they have a standard 2 attacks each. With 5 Marines minimum, you're looking at 10 attacks with initiative 4 at strength 4.
    An Obliterator has 3 attacks on the charge, always hits last (because of the power fist) so needs to survive to hit back, but wounds most things on a 2+ and ignores armour saves. On the other hand, the Obliterator comes equipped with a variety of weaponry that can deal with the bigger Tyranids quite easily.

    The best thing to do (in my opinion) is to proxy the Obliterator and just test it out.

    At what point mark? At 1500 points, I field 6 Obliterators and they are just devastating aganst Nids. However, supposng that your battle as at 500 points, 1-2 Obliterators would be fine. Moreover, what HQ do you play? Oh, and one last thing to mention: csm have BOTH bolters AND boltpistols+chainswords and you decide which to use each phase. They don't need to be visible on the models.
    I'd reccomend this list:
    HQ
    Daemon Prince with Wings, Mark of Slaanesh 135
    Troops
    10 Chaos Space Marines with Missile Launcher, Plasmagun 175
    5 Chaos Space Marines with Flamer in a Rhino 115
    Heavy Support
    Obliterator 75


    Edit: OR you could get a Chaos Lord with Mark of Nurgle and Daemon Weapon instead of the Daemon prince (if you don't own the model)

    I believe the chainsword unit must be Khorne berserkers.

    That makes a lot of sense if he bought the battleforce .

    And even more sense, since he killed a Carnifex

    When I read the title of this thread, I thought it said O-Bieber-ator. I had a sudden mental picture of a gnarly looking terminator with a terrible haircut and a blwating voice like a baby lamb. Oh, the horror!
