I've decided to collect Night Lords for three main reasons:

1) Seriously cool winged helmets!
2) Night vision.
3) After Tau I wanted something with a bit of combat punch.

And here it is, a fast, scary Chaos list:


Chaos Sorceror, wind of chaos, power fist, combi-flamer
Mark of CU (Chaos Undivided), infiltrate, stealth adept

Retinue of 6 chosen, Marks of CU, infiltrate, stealth adepts
1 has a melta gun
1 is an aspiring champion with bolt pistol and power sword


2 Obliterators

8 Possessed, daemonic talons, in a Rhino


8 marines, marks of CU, in a Rhino
1 with plasma gun
1 with melta gun
1 is an aspiring champion with powerfist and bolt pistol

6 marines, marks of CU, infiltrate
1 with plasma gun
1 is an aspiring champion with power sword and bolt pistol


5 raptors, marks of CU, furious charge
1 with melta gun
1 is an aspiring champion with 2 lightning claws

6 furies


Predator, autocannon, 2 lascannons

(every squad with marks of CU has a free icon)

TOTAL= 1504

I only bought the codex yesterday, and don't know too much about chaos, so any help would be worth it's weight in skulls, e.t.c. Thanks!

A 1000 pt list would mean that I would have to lose the following:

Raptors
Possessed and rhino
Two plasma guns

Any thoughts on these two lists?

First off you lord and chosen are illiegal, if you take a mark, any mark, your only allowed one vet skill, and stealth adept does count towards that skill limit, I would suggest dropping stealth adept, since your lord and retinue do best in cc.
Second, your two squads, what are there normal guys equipped with, bolters or bolt pistols and cc weapons, if there geared for cc, I would recomnd droping the plasma gun for a plasma pistol, since theyll probbly be on the move anyway so either way they get the one shot before cc, and a bonus attack. If there equipped with bolters and not meant for cc I would probbly drop the AC. As for your raptors, you have alot of points invested in your Raptor aspiring champion, 76 points I do belive, and most of it comes from the lightning claws, I would probbly drop them for (ranging from most expensive to cheapest) powerfist and bolt pistol, power sword and bolt pistol, daemonic claws, daemonic venom.
Also give your rhinos smoke launchers and extra armour (8 points per rhino) if you can, they GREATLY increase surviablty of the rhino.
Some things you might want to watch out for while playing... your raptors numbers are kind of low, so try and keep them out of los as best you can. From my experience its better to use that 12 inch movment to stay out of los then just charge forward, at least my enemys love to shoot my mighty raptors out of the sky... Your predator and oblits are your only heavy weapons really, so guard em as best you can.
Rember these are just pointers, don't have to change everything I suggest.
And good to see another nightlords player, me and protocon welcome you to our ranks ;)

that's the new list, couldn't fit the extra armour in the points... :(

The raptors and oblits will deep strike and unleash the furies in the enemy rear, whilst the three rhinos smash into the enemy front under covering fire from the infiltrating squad, oblits and pred.
How's the list and tactics now?

hmm seems like a very good strategy the only problems could come from deepstrike scatter(something that lands you next to an avatar or something)

Only problem with that stratagy is.... Raptors CAN NOT DEEPSTRIKE, im pretty sure ive said this before, but raptors lack the abilty to deep strike, might want to rethink your plan there a bit. But over all the new list looks pretty good.

wasn'tsure about my thinking: raptors=daemonic flight=jetpacks=deepstrike. List retthink:

no raptors, swap for 1 obliterator, 6 furies, 1 smoke launcher and two chosen.

um ... no more then 1 vet skill with a mark, its sorta in the choas specail rules section, under vetren skills, see it, there you go.

also nice list, id personally try and find a way to fit furious charge in there so i get the upper hand in cc against intiative 4 or 5 models

its nice and solid, i like the furies, me personally think raptors are too expensive even though they cost less then bikes you have to field more leaving less breathing room for other models. furies would have been my choice too.
