Mine has not, but thats because its a Mechinized force that utilizes Land Raider Crusaders and CC to destroy the enemy, both of which got boosted.

I ask because I want to build a competitive force for tournaments but I don't know wether I should go for a blood angel hybrid rhino rush or a heavy infentry chaos shooty from hell? I can only afford to build the one.

Shooty nurgle alingned force from hell. They'll provide awsome mdels to paint, some nice tougness 5 all across the board, and feel no pain on your troops. Plus this army being realtivly small in number is very affordable.

The shooty chaos one suppost to be weight in numbers and a wall of bullets so noise marines, undivied troops, havocs and raptors.

I can state from experience that the BA hybrid/rhino rushing force is very uncompetitive. Stick with jetpacks if you want mobility. Also, vanilla SMs, being cheaper, tend to do a hybrid list better. BA tend to suffer from a lack of a model count too much to split up their forces wildly.

Baal preds are nice shooty bases, though.

I've played my vanilla marines a few tournaments so far, and all I've changed is taking 4 Tac squads to taking 5 Tac squads. Lots of missle Launchers, and added in a Command squad for my librarian. Thats it really.

Nothing changes for most of my armies, with the exception of SOBs (Hooray for the new Jump Pack Rules and also INferno pistol spamming!) as I am a mechanized force player, which in this edition becomes even more harder to take down. In fact, my forces became much more insidious in nature, as now I combined more Deepstriking forces and also outflanking forces to engage my opponent at all levels.

I dropped disruption fields from my scarab lists, as glances do me little good now. Instead, I use the extra points to max models.
