Default 1850 pt chaos army for Tourney.

This is based off of my 1000pt chaos army. So, I tried to nearly double the spawn count (as seemed fitting for a nearly 2000pt game). My main worry is anti-walker.

My plan depends fully on what opponents I am facing, but mostly it's surge forwards in a made rush with everything but the chaos marines and obliterators as those guys either capture objectives/shoot things. Since the lord is Calvary, he can ride with one of the spawn units. Huzzah!

you are probably going to struggle against mek lists and Nidzilla as both will have lost of units which you're spawn will struggle with you have z uniits of spawn but they are not tat useful as they are impossible to control and a tactical squad can probably take a unit out as well as any demolisher cannons will ruin your day they army will probably attack in several waves as the spawn are slow and purposeful making them easier to take out and you're small amount of anti tank wont be able to take care of enemy leman russes and the like. despite all of this I think it would be a really fun army to play although not terribly competitive. as a suggestion i would see if you could fit somebody in with gift of chaos.

After a couple of test games, the spawn/lord/lash prince combo is working extreamly well for me. Making changes now based on improving long ranged fire weakness.

Marine squads will stick in Rhinos and snipe with lascannons, meltaguns will be used after the first couple of turns when they move to be aggressive. I don't expect to use them both at the same time, but meltaguns are a fairly good anti-tank weapon, and cheaper then plasmaguns. Lascannons can be used to kill enemy transports in the first turn or two, or walkers.
