    Need Help With A Special Event (200 point)

    There is a special event going on at my GW next friday, you have to bring 200 points worth of troops to enter, now I need help figuring out what to use.

    My Dark Eldar troops are out of the question.

    I was thinking of some normal chaos marines, as it costs too much points per model to give em marks, unless I have like a 5 man thousands sons.

    Im not sure what to use, normal CSM with a tooled up Asp Champ, or plague marines or something like that?

    Could you please give a little more info on the event. Is it a combat patroll, esq, or is it a bunch of people bring in a single squad and then everyone bashes eachother?
    Please illuminate on what you wish to accomplish with these 200 points.

    But, in general 200 points is about right for ONE squad of CSMs.

    For example 8 Alpha legion CSMs with Mark of Chaos Undivided, Infiltrate, 2x Plasmaguns(or meltaguns) Aspiring champion with Powerfist/Bolt pistol will run you 176pts

    7 Death guard plague marines will run you: 181 for the same kit-out minus the infiltrate(202 with infiltrate)

    There are more ways to do this, what would YOU like to field?

    Its not 1 v 1, its a megabattle, you can bring 200 points worth of troops, I was looking to get troops that would be able to survive and hold their own in CC and be able to have some long range skills, heres a small 200 point list.

    8 Marines-2 Plasma Guns
    1 Asp Champ(really tool him up)
    Daemon Armour
    Daemonic Aura
    Power Fist
    Bolt Pistol
    Daemonic Ressiliance
    MoCU
    -199 Points.

    I was thinking of running some bezerkers also.

    7 Berzerkers
    MoK
    6 Chainaxes
    1 Asp Champ with-Bolt Pistol, Axe Of Khorne, Feel No Pain, Daemon Armour, Daemon Strenght, Talisman of Burning Blood.

    Alright, awesome. Instead of giving you options, I'll try to work with what you want to go with and explain my logic as I go.

    Here's why you don't want to use daemon armor: its a waste of points on an aspiring champion. His "armor" is the 7 other guys in the unit. Due to the "majority armor" rules, you won't get to make use of the armor until it is just him and one other guy.
    Same with Daemonic aura, until he's the last or one of 2, you just won't get the chance to use it. I would put other gear on him instead.

    The very same reason as the armor and aura, "majority toughness" unless he's the last thing in the squad, or being targeted(which he really can't be) you won't use it.

    Swap all three of those gifts to: Daemonic Mutation, Spikey bits, Daemonic Visage.
    Oh, and remember to give them all frag grenades and Mark of Chaos undivided. It really REALLY sucks when your guys get shot first turn and they tuck tail and run off the board.

    As the same reasons above, drop the daemon armor and aura, pick up mutation and spikey bits instead.

    Do you want to:

    A) CSM- be able to shoot, and do some CC well if you want/need to?

    or

    Spam across the board like a bunch of lunatics hungry for souls, thirsty for blood to claim skulls for the skull throne of Khorne?

    Well, then.. there you go!


    Realize that 90 + % of the time, if your squad gets wiped out, its going DOWN before your AC will ever EVER see those awesome armor/defensive upgrades put to use.

    Alpha Legion really becomes a strong hold in these small point values (like Yak said earlier). Buying infiltrate a 1 point per model makes all the difference- just another thought.
