Default Tactics against chaos

I plan to fight in a mega battle soon with marines versus chaos and I need some tips for this and general battles against chaos too for:

1000pt games

1500pt games

1850pt games

and mega battle ( five teams on each side with 1000pt list for each member)

need tactics for all of these if my marine army is to do better than my tau army.

ummm...chaos armies are possibly the most variable army on the face of the planet...we can help with cult armies, specific chapters and known lists, but chaos as a whole is almost impossible to cover

Always take a couple of lascannons and/or missile launchers to deal with defilers and other heavy vehicles, also a tactical squad with plasma guns to deal with terminators and also a whirlwind is always welcome. I would also advise a scout squad to pin units.

That's...interesting, i suppose but I have 2 questions about this tactic.

1) How does it help him win?

2) WHY?!?!?!?!

Default Re: Tactics against chaos

Id go with 2 forces!

1 big part on about 75% of the army, which will be a stand and shoot army, with lots of heavy weapons, and some small tacticals with specials!

second part of about 25% will be a little flanking force of speed a.k.a. speeders and bikes and attack bikes. These should be concentrated on ONE flank.

Other then that the best tip is to eliminate one squad at the time! Even if this means bringing half your fire for one round in that pesky little demon princes retinue! But Noone leaves a wounded enemy behind him.
With some luck you can take out 2 or 3 squads per turn, severly taking down his force. Believe me, it feels alot more to see 1 * 10 marines go then 5*2 marines die
