    This covers three things, you see I'm playing a game next weekend (1000pts) against chaos marines and ultramarines. It's called carnage, where we each start with all our forces on the board, an even amount away from the centre, and we have to capture the middle. I'm posting here as I'm in need of a list and strategy, as well as some fluff. I would like to continue the story on from "Battle of the Titans" (see battle report section), and I'm wonderind if anybody can help me with these 3 things...

    my list would have

    shas'el and 2 suits with drones, plasma, and fusion

    2 lots of 9 fire warriors

    a few stealth

    12 kroot as a shield

    2 broadsides

    ion cannon hammerhead


    Please reply soon!

    Take a shas'o

    WS 4 and BS 5 are worth the points against SM or CSM. Skip two Firewarriors to get the points together, as they wont cause much damage against your opponents

    I would cut out those stealth suits and either take more firewarriors or kroot. How long does the game last? If you have to hold the middle, you'll want more firepower. Stealth suits have the same weapon strength as firewarriors, but are shorter ranged. And stealth suits cost three fw anyways.

    as for tactics, pick off any vehicles he has with the broadsides while your hammerhead opens up on the marines with power armor. Deepstrike your crisis suits near to the middle as soon as possible and when the rest of your army is close at hand. Keep the firewarriors/kroot moving. I sugges using a "leapfrog" movement where one squad stays stationary to shoot at full effect while the others move, and then vice versa the next time.

    You'll have an uphill battle me thinks.

    Or you could get some more broadsides, for they are really good against marines. you could use more kroot as a big shield, but i dont know if the battle is in a forest. if you are in the forest kroot are good to use. i dont know if stealth suits would do the job, but they could make it your oponent very hard. have fun and good luck!

    De list

    Shas’o: fusion blaster, plasma, multitracker, HW controller and 2 gun drones = 130pts

    3 xv8: fusions, plasmas, and multitrackers = 216pts

    3 stealth = 90pts

    9 fws = 90pts

    9 fws = 90pts

    13 kroot = 84pts

    2 broadsides, 2 sms, 2 twinlink railguns, 1 target lock, 2 gun drones = 165pts

    hammerhead, ion cannon, 2 burst cannons = 130pts

    = 1002pts

    I'm not sure whether to take 3 xv8 and 2 broadsides, or 2 xv8 and 3 broadsides.
    please tell me what'cha think of the list.

    tactics:

    broadsides and hammerhead take out threats
    kroot to protect most threatened flank and act as a shield and ambush from woods
    fws protect flanks
    all suits jet towards centre in turn 3 0r 4 (random game length, no deepstrike)

    Good or Bad, I'm someone has a better plan...

    fluff; in battle of the titans, eldar, csm and my tau had an argument over whether to ally to stop the war to get to the warp gate, of course, it failed, and the eldar were dammaged so severely, they need to regather their strength and so cant take part in this battle. csm and tau rush off to get the portal (this is the carnage bit), but an ultramaine strikeforce appears to eradicate all, and claim the world as part of a crusades vanguard...
