Default TO GI campaign> Formidable Chaos List and clever combos

Okay the other boards have been chatting away (the Nids are the furthest ahead so far) on tactics etc, well as Chaos we provide a large threat and we need to increase that.

So I ask you to post up army lists and if you can what armys they work well against.

As well as this combos that you think work just simple things like how you tool up your lord to stop instant kill and to ignore saves etc.

Lets give 'em Hell!

Okay guys,

My army is a LatD Hybrid of Traitors and Mutants. I have Lascannons to deal with armour, and Muties to counter hordes.

What can you bring to the table?

Ok...........

I got 2 armies i'll be switching off. The first is my Deathguard army. It is nearly unbeatable and actually has win record of 31/1. Gologtha will tremble at the Forces of Nurgle....

The Pox Knights of Nurgle, 2000 points Deathguard

HQ
DP w/ MR, D strength, Frags, D essence, D flight, MoN, D armor, D stature, D Aura

GUO w/ WoC (or GoC depending who I play)

Elite

4 Termies w/ Combi Bolters and Pwr fists
2 Termies w/ Reaper ACs, Pwr Fists, and Tank Hunters
1 Termie Champ w/ D strength and Lightning Claws

Troops

4 PMs w/ Bolters and CCWs
2 PMs w/ Plasmas and CCWs
1 Champ w/ Bolter and Pwr Fist all w/ infiltrate

4 PMs w/ Bolters and CCWs
2 PMs w/ Plasmas and CCWs
1 Champ w/ Bolter and Pwr Fist all w/ infiltrate

4 PMs w/ Bolters and CCWs
2 PMs w/ Plasmas and CCWs
1 Champ w/ Bolter and CCW (Demon Host) all w/ infiltrate

7 Plaugebearers

7 Plaugebearers

7 Plaugebearers

Heavy

Dread w/ Combi Bolter, TL Lassie, Extra Armor, mutated Hull, Smokes

Dread w/ Combi Bolter, TL Lassie, Extra Armor, mutated Hull, Smokes

4 PM Havocs w/ Plasma guns and CCWs
2 PM Havocs w/ Bolters and CCWs
1 Champ w/ Bolter and pwr fist all w/ infiltrate

Total= 1999pts

This army is my favorite to play with by far. First off, its exteremly flexible. Because I have termies, Demons, and a Great Unclean one, I have the ability to deploy forces all over the table, wherever I need it. NowI also broke the chaos taboo of using dreadnoughts. I did this firstly because I love dreads from a modelling standpoint. However, when I got a couple games under my belt, I find that they arn't fire magnets like a tank is. The get move 6" and shoot. They just stand in the back and blast tanks to oblivion. Every once and a while, some hotshot thinks they can sneak some rocket toting scouts to blow my dreads up. In that case I lock them up in CC and bash their pretty faces in with my DCCW. All in all, its an amazing list thaqts extremely fun to play. This army is my baby and i'd take it to my grave if I had to


Ok, so the other army i'll throw in is my LatD,

The Mutant Hordes of Uredo Morbus, 1000pts LatD


HQ

1 Asp Champ w/ D Strength, Manreaper, MoN
= 62pts (placed in mutant squad)

Troops

3 Traitors w/ lasgun and frags
1 Traitor w/ sniper rifle
1 Traitor team w/ Lascannon
= 73pts

3 Traitors w/ lasgun and frags
1 Traitor w/ sniper rifle
1 Traitor team w/ Lascannon
= 73pts

15 Burly Mutants (grouped w/ asp champ)
= 135pts

15 Burly Mutants
= 135pts

Fast Attack

10 Chaos Hounds
= 100pts

10 Chaos Hounds
= 100pts

7 Rough Riders w/ Hunting Lances
2 Rough Riders w/ Melta Guns
= 135pts

Heavy Support

1 Basilisk
= 100pts

5 Chaos Spawns
= 100pts

Total= 997pts

Its a fun list, still WiP, but it has one every game I've tested. It's specialty is swarm armies. Because its a smaller list, it won't as much action as it's Deathguard big brother. However, it is an amazingly easy and fun list and will get some tabletop action duirng the campaign.

power weapon
cc weapon
Combat drugs (+ 1 attack)
MoS
Daenomic fire

It fits great fluff wise with the model and he now has 6 attacks (7 if on a charge!)

What do you think also what should give him for a chosen unit or shoul I?)
Well im envisioning a centaur kind of thing. It seems like you sacrificed usefulness for fluff. This is fine, but you may want to slap in some aura or resilliance to him alive longer. Fire is just lousy, lose that for somthing else. It looks fine for a cheap lord. My knowledge of Slaanesh is ho-hum, and I don't have my codex on me, or i'd help out some more. Oh and I thought combat drugs you had to roll a D6 or somthin? (maybe im thinking of Dark Eldar).....

I'm fielding a Nurgle-oriented LATD.
It goes something like
3 ACS, power fists, mark of nurgle
arch heretic wit speed, mark of nurgle, manreaper, frags
daemon prince wit speed, mark of nurgle, stature, and aura, 2 ccws
2x 7 plague marines, AC with power weapon, 2 plasma guns
3x 7 traitors, sniper, lascannon
3x 28 nurgle mutants, boss with power fist and ccw
7 rough riders with hunting lances and 2 meltas
7 rough riders with melta bombs and 2 meltas
-1997
plenty of attacks, shots, etc. to go around. Pretty good against almost all armies, except perhaps a heavy-bolter tooled out iguard. the nurgle on mutants is necessary because otherwise the army would be destroyed by marines, tau, eldar, etc. The arch-heretic provides some early on assault capabilities against infantry. the daemon prince just walks around kicking ass.
my other list is similar but the plague marines are dropped in favor of a large squad of alpha legion, and I have fewer mutants but add some bloodletters, and leman russes instead of rough riders. I also can substitute the third traitor squad and the rough riders for 2 leman russes.
