So I have been collecting chaos for a while I brought a mega force a army force and some stuff of ebay got a bit board of them come back been gathering up all my stud this is what I found


I have about 30 marines (plus 10 unbuilt so I can use any weapon options)
10 terminators
1 chaos lord in terminator armour
1 unbuilt chaos sorcerer in terminator armour
2 rhinos
6 khrone berserks
2 chaos spawn
4 possessed marines
6 raptors
A vindicator
2 obliterators
A defiler (I think I got a second one as well)
A land raider (once again might have a second one)
6 noise marines (1 champ 1 with blast master the rest with sonic blasters there converted up so I can get more easily enough)
3 bikes


I was going to order a battle force as well but my real question is what kind of army should I make out of this I’m looking to get back into 40k and I think chaos is the cheapest way to do it. Also are they any units I don’t have but desperately need I’m up for buying most units but I’m not crazy about a daemon prince.

Oh I’m also not sure what point size I should be aiming for as well


Oh my force by the way is a renegade undivided chapter loosely based on night lords I don’t know if this has any importance at all

Well you have a nice stock so far.

Sadly a Night Lord army isn't really possible anymore since 5th. But undivided renegade shouldn't be a problem.
So far you have 30 Marines, that makes 3 Squads, they will need Transports, so Rhinos is always a good choice.

The one/two Defilers give you a nice HS option, give them +1 CCW and they will do the trick.

I'd stock up on Berzerkers in a Rhino/LR, they will be really killy once they reach enemy lines.
The Noisies can be used as Objective grabbers, Transport wouldn't be too wrong neither.

For HQ, I'd get another Sorc, give him Lash. Together with the Defilers that will be devastating, or to move them into assault range with your Zerkers.
There is a new Plastic Demon Prince model in the pipeline, should be out in August, some pics can be found in the Rumours thread.

The Termies can be used as a Karmoon Special, 2x5man Squads. Or one or two Suicide Squads with 3 Combi Melta and then deepstrike them.
Possessed can be nasty with 2 Special weapons and outflank.

It basically really depends how many points you wanna have.
My advice: Post a army list in the army list part of the Forum and take it from there.

Hope that helps a little...

Zerkers in a rhino are good, but they don't get to assault after disembarking from the transport. while you can use the rhino as a wall, they'll still be vulnerable to templates, and at the mercy of an enemy counterattack for a turn before they get to do anything. Losing their special ability hurts. When I use my zerkers, I put them in a land raider, yes more points, but more survivable, and also gets the assault after the movement/disembark

i have been looking into aq squad or 2 of the Nurgle marines in rhinos for my army. They have a survivalbilty that is hard to match. plus defence grenades. i was thinking about giveing them 2 meltas and a powerfist and just run them around tank hunting. just a thought.

Ok thanks guys sorry for the lateness in posting back just one or two follow up questions you guys seam to be suggesting most of what I have is good I just need more of it can I ask what is the max number of khorne berserkers chaos space marines and rhinos will I ever need ? as I’m going to just buy multiples of the battle force for awhile.


Secondly are there any particular units in my army that I should really just leave on the shelf or are must haves I ask because much of the army is not painted and I want to prioritize what to do first

Possessed, Chaos Spawn, Raptors and Bikes can be left on the shelf, they're just not very good. For high priority models, Berzerkers, CSM, Rhinos, Defiler, Oblits and the Land Raider are all very good models to use. You could also do with buying a Daemon Prince or two and adding some wings to them.

I'm not like, a super experienced chaos space marine player, but i'd say get more bikes, more berzerkerz, maybe 2 more rhinos and some more posessed to actually get a squad of posessed. Oh and another Oblirerator wouldnt hurt. Max squad number is 3.

More zerkers and rhinos, 1 more oblit, yes. No more posessed, they're trash!
