    D.Mutation is better suited than spikey bits on your lord, add frag grenades.

    For the squads I would have one that is close combat and one that is fire support.

    Fire Support
    -AC w/power weapon, d.strength, doom siren.
    -2x sonic blasters
    -1x blast master
    -2x bolters
    -Infiltrate

    Close Combat
    -AC w/power weapon, d.strength, doom siren
    -4x ccw and bolt pistol
    -1x blastmaster

    That is a very expensive HQ to be fielding with a small force.
    Otherwise, he NEEDS some sorrt of invulnerable save, siren may save you from most shooting, but against the good ol' powerfist/weapon he's a sitting duck.
    Your other squads won't be able to take much else than just exist.
    Otherwise, those squads helbrecht suggested look pretty good.

    With regards to Helbrecht's suggested squads:
    I gotta say, against meqs lose the sonic blasters and give them a melta/plasma

    You have a nice HQ, as Yak advices, for larger games.

    I dunno, I've tried beefy HQs in small games, and everytime it turned on me. But hey, that's just my experience. Give it a try and have the fun.

    o yes i forgot to add that my HQ has terminator armor as well so it should be like this

    HQ: Chaos lord

    Wargear:
    Terminator armor
    Combat drugs
    Dual lightning claws
    Spiky bits
    Doom siren

    2x Emperor's children unit

    oh and to your comment about my HQ being expensive i agree but this is just a starting place thats why i needed your guys help with what else i should go with i was thinking about getting 2 dreadnaughts maybe???


    Oh and thanks for your advice on half and half close combat and then range i will do that, thanks for your help but more is needed for me to understand but THANKS ALOT!

    Dreadnaughts... 1 maybe, but 2.. i don't think that's so hot.
    They're great for what they do, but they can be unpredictable, can be popped in 1 shot, and take up space in Heavy support which should be saved for something else.

    i'd recommend a predator. Or better still, some havocs. The 'Fasty Nucks' 8 man 4 autocannon team will always help you.

    If you're slaanesh then Daemonettes is also a very very strong recommendation.

    Then you should probably test your army in a variety of situations, see what your army has trouble responding against/ see what you like and then buy accordingly.

    You could post an updated list at that point too.

    Hope that helps

    Personally, I'd scrap any long range stuff, and just take close combat squads. Drop the doom siren on the champion, maybe give him a mutation instead. Mount at least one in a rhino with a warp amp and give the champion daemonic visage (psychological warfare here we come!) Unless you're going mechanised, any non mechanised squads should probably infiltrate.

    Then maybe some havocs with blastmasters if you really need some shooting. They can actually start firing from a decent range, and their mobility can be lots of fun. There is no point giving Emperor's Children Havocs an autocannon. You might as well be playing black legion.

    Alrite thanks alot guys for your help you have helped alot!

    I was wondering what is your guys' opinion on This HQ chaos lord


    Chaos lord's Wargear:

    Terminator armor
    Dual lightning claws
    Combat drugs
    Spiky bits
    Doom siren

    What i would really like your opinion on is the Terminator armor on my HQ and If it's very Competitive tourney wise or if it's just a bad idea to have a HQ with Terminator armor.


    And maybe some advice or tactics on how to use a HQ like this with this wargear and all, thanks ALOT everybody your really helping alot
