First things first, This is my first post, so good evening all. *tips hat*
I was going to add this to the chaos legions thread, but figured It'd be kind of hijacking the thread a little.
I'm an ex-player slowly getting back into it, and as a result, I only just picked up a copy of the new rules (both core and CSM) and I've still got a fair amount of adjusting to do. Both books I had were the latest as of about 2005.
At current most people I'll be playing with will be friends &c, so there's nothing official that HAS to be stuck to, but obviously I'd like to as much as I can.
Basically I've had Ideas of making my own chapter - I have color scheme &c. all sorted, and a few ideas in terms of rules (which I'm actually thinking twice about now but I reckon I'll go through with it) One thing I'm really keen on is plasma weapons, and in the rules I was familiar with, there was very little space for them in a chaos army besides giving 2 members of each core squad plasma guns. I was wondering how much you'd expect to pay for plasma cannons, and which units they'd be available to. (I had Havocs, Core squads and Dreadnoughts in mind so far) And also if I should take out choice of something else to make up for the additional weapon being available.
Another thing is additional heavy support (a la Iron Warriors) In the old rules you sacrificed two fast attack for one extra heavy support choice, But I noticed in the chaos legions thread, the night lords only lost one Heavy Support to compensate for their additional Fast Attack, so I was thinking follow suit and go with 4 HS and 2 FA?
I'll probably be asking more as it comes to mind, That's all I can think of for now.
Any help appreciated.

Also, Here's some examples of my colour scheme, and My current chapter leader, Endymion. Apologies for the blur, I don't have a steady hand at all and there was nothing to rest the cam on. Comments appreciated.

I would say adding Plasma Cannons to Chosen/Troops choices/Havocs would cost 30/20/30pts. which is about even to SM codex. Additionally you could change the selections of each squad, so that for every five members, an additional weapon can be purchased- total of 4 for troops, eight for havocs- might seem like much, but sometimes GW doesn't realise they have a points system for a reason. If you REALLY want to focus on Heavy, you could sacrifice all three FA and one TRP to take two additional HS.(5 troops, five HS) OR if you are focusing specifically on Dreads- you could take two per Heavy choice. This allows you four dreads, plus a Havoc squad, without sacrificing any FA. I've just thrown out some general ideas here.
You could take them as counting for 2 support weapon slots?
That'd kinda suck tactically, being as the plasma cannon squads wouldn't me moving around an awful lot, and with the large squad numbers it'd need to take plasma cannons using that rule, I wouldn't get anywhere near my points worth out of the other members in the squad.
As I said though, I'm still familiarising with the new rules, correct me if I'm wrong.
I was thinking maybe sacrifice some other weapons choice...?
