    I'd drop the vox network. Your officers can easily provide a bubble for their respective platoons, I'd also switch the missile launchers in your anti tank squads to las cannons, but thats more of a personal preference.

    The dropping of the Vox network is probably good. But have you seen how good the vox-casters look in the Vraks-line of models? They're stunning. I just have to have them. And this isn't an competitive list. It's just for fun. That's why i use enforcers and an Engineseer.

    I chose between the Ogryn Berzerkers and the Forge World Hellhounds due to economical reasons. I have 2 Graia pattern Hellhounds and 1 Artemia pattern - and they're REALLY spikey, as are my Lemans too in true chaos style. In retrospective I regret the Graia, as I like the hatch on top of the Artemia. That way I can show off my Vraks tank commanders. I plan on buying a Baneblade just to use my leftover Tank Commanders, and maye the Apocalypse pack of 3 Basilisks too. That would make one sick army.
    All my models are Forge World - and they're about 90 of them. Let me tell you, the FW Vraksian weapons arms are pure hell to trim and assemble. I use an excessive amount of greenstuff between the joints to make them fit and stick. On most of them I just use the Cadian weapons arms for the lasguns and the Vraksian Meltaguns and Plasma Guns.

    Does anyone know whether or not you have to glue the Earthshaker Cannon onto the Chimera? I think it would be cool to use the Forge World Earthshaker Cannon Platform Conversion Kit, and shange the cannon back and forth between the Platform and the Chimera. Anyone got and tips and tricks?
