    Hmmm

    Chaos Lord or Daemon Prince depending on whether you like characters

    two squads of eight CSM ( hey you get eight in a box )

    three obliterators if you can afford them

    a squad of havocs, I'd go missle launchers or autocannons


    No idea how many points it comes to, but it should leave plenty of points over for wargear and maybe another unit.

    Thank you very much for your insight. Would 24 CSM, 2 rhinos, and 1 champion be useful for helping me get started or should i steer clear of rhinos and the extra guys until i get 1000 points? THe reason im asking is because a store has a special going on so i could get the 24 plastic chaos space marines, 2 rhinos, and a champion for 90 dollars.

    do that for sure
    you could orginise it like this

    2 ten man squads mounted in rhinos

    the four dudes left over could be used as havocs ( if you have some Hvy weaps )
    the champion could be used for the havoc squad

    then all you need is to get a suitible mini for your leader and badda bing badda boom you have a chaos force.

    just a word of warning, under the trial vehicle rules rhinos ( infact all transports )
    became alot more vulnerable, leaving you with horribly exposed troops, however these are only trial rules and you and your opponent have to agree before using them...so just don't use them.

    BTW alot of gamers complained to GW about them, so they will probably be changed before 4th ed. hits the shelves next year.

    Have you decided what kidn of army it's going to be? If not, here's a few pointers:

    Start with 2 squads of CSM as troops, one rhino-mounted and equipped with close combat weapons and short range assault weapons (flamers/meltas), the other with bolters and a heavy weapon.
    Then get a Lord or Lieutenant (not too expensive) to ride with the rhino-mounted squad.
    Use a Havoc squad with missile launchers or a predator with lascannons (depends on personal preference).
    Consider some Obliterators, or a second rhino-borne squad.

    Nice, very nice in fact. I&#39;d make the assault squad 10 strong and use models from the shooting squads, otherwise it&#39;s great &#33;. Finally someone who doesn&#39;t use tiny squads ^_^ .

    Aye, but you have a good reason. You see a lot of undivided armies with small squads.

    Every squad in my Dark Sons army is seven strong, including my bike squad which I&#39;m painting at the moment ( and there&#39;s alot to paint )

    Also your Chaos Lord is considered a Daemon Prince because he has 60pts of Daemonic gifts. After you&#39;ve done this army a few vehicle oculd easily get you near 2000pts
