Default LatD Help

Hey everyone,
I have a pal starting up LatD, the trick is he doesn't want alot of Space Marines but more Traitors and daemons. He is struggling with a winning list and I am running out of ideas. Any help to get this would be daemon prince in the fight? Looking for a solid 1000, 1500, 1750 list and any tactical considerations/advice you might impart...thanks in advance.

Well Heres a brief rundown on LatD

HQs: Aside from the CSM HQs (Greater demons and lords) you got Aspiring champs. I like them, really all I use them for is giving the mutants more powerfist shots.

Elites: If anything, stuff some CSM choices in here. Big mutants are a joke IMO

Troops: Here is where things get interesting. First, I reccomend a combo of both traitors and mutants. Traitors are on par with your IG stormtroopers. They can be tooled for anything and everything. I like to give them a lassie and sniper rifle and keep them back and go tank hunting. Mutants (with the 'burly' upgrade) or basically orks. Get some nice big swarms, but some aspiring champs for the powerfist/weapon slot and morale boost and your good to go. Have them footslog while the get support from the heavys and traiors

Fast: I like hounds. They provide excellent flanking for the troops. Dont forget about Rough Riders, They also provide excellent conversion opportunites and tank hunter prowess.

Heavys: The skys the limit here. I love Bassilsks, they provide excellent support for the footsloggers. I also love spawns, I usually take some and have them march with the mutants.

Here is my Nurgle themed LatD list:

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


Hope I could help.
