Default a 1,500 point list of pleasure....

a pure emporer's children list...
my main enemies will most likely be a new khorne but awsome khorne player, a space marine player (uses assault marines combined with a firing base usually), a very new Nid player, and IG....

the plan is swap them with fire that can move (everything in this army either has some form of assault weaponry, or is a close combat specialist), and have the deamons cause some CC havoc to throw them off....

here we go....

HQ
chaos lord (146)
mark of slaanesh, bolt pistol, darkblade, combat drugs, demonic speed, spikey bits, doomsiren...

troops

6 noise marines-172
mark of slaanesh, free AC, 4 sonic blasters, 1 melta, 1 blast master, infiltrate

6 noise marines- 172
a clone of above...

6 noise marines- 167
a clone of above, just instead of infiltrate, they have tank hunters, and no melta...

6 noise marines-167
clone of above...

6 deamonettes- 90

6 deamonettes- 90

heavy support
6 havocs- 242
4 blastmasters, mark of slaanesh, free AC with powerfist and plasma pistol, tankhunters, and one sonic blaster for the lone "bolter" marine

6 havocs- 242
clone of above...


total: 1493 points

need a few more points.... any ideas?

i think this list is gonna work beautifully for me... very very shooty, every unit with guns can move their full 6 inches and fire every gun at full range if they wanted to... i could easily swamp out hordes, can easily take out a tank heavy list... the only thing im worried about is a MEQ heavy army...
but i figure the deamonettes could help with that... and you can even fail 3+ saves when you've got 70 some odd shots coming at you a turn just from troops....
any ideas?

im thinking of ditching the AC's on the havocs and giving them 2 more marines, just so they have more wounds to go through before they start taking hits on the heavy weapons...

Mitch,

I'd consider moving the powerfists from your Havoc Squads to your infiltrating Squads to bolster their CC power. (You're Havoc s are on the back line, and unlikely to see CC, the Daemonettes are insurance enough here) Secondly, I'd give infiltrate to your remaining troops squads rather than tank hunters; or failing that I'd bury two new powerfists in those squads for the points. You have ample anti-armor in your havocs and meltas, but lack mobility and counterassault in your troops squads. Other than that, the list looks very solid.

what the hell is this? am i reading this right? you get rid of infiltrate for tank hunter but get rid of melta? what's the point in that?

other than that it's pretty good.

you do know 12 and 18 man squads in a children army are still favoured check the paragraph that talks of favoured units it says exact multiples of, this is cool as the mark of slaanesh makes them fearless.

yeah... smaller squads = more big guns :-D
and since they are fearless, i figure i dont really need big squads...

and i figured that the infiltrators will be using the meltas more than the TH squads...
because they will most likely be the only ones within range...
but im gonna fix them up good :-D dont worry

but the tank hunter units haven't got anything to use against hard tanks, so it's wasted.

I think any army with a bit of mobility will give you some serious problems. Once you've infiltrated forward that's it. You're guys are walking after that. You need to fit some speed in there somehow I think. Also you don't have a lot of troops in your army.
