Default 400-pt tactics against Chaos

I don't know what to take. I'm facing off against Chaos and I don't know what to take.
any suggestions?

Default Re: 400 pt tackics what should i tack

is it 400 pts straight rules, or 400 pts Combat Patrol?

this is imortant, because Combat Patrol places limitations, such as no 2+ saves, no characters, etc... If you come to the table with a Combat Patrol force, and he comes with a Terminator Squad.. well then, either you misunderstood, or hes totally taking advantage of you.

either way that needs to be made clear up front.

You should take* FWs, in a devlifish if you can afford it. Your commander should be either a FK or a helios, and you should have at least one crisis with a MP and a plasma. If you're nervous about him taking Terminators or obliterators, make both of your XV8s Helios and you'll be fine.

Bear in mind, though, that at 400 points, a legal unit of Terminators will cost him a minimum of 180 points, and that a unit of Obliterators will cost him a minimum of 70 points and can be killed by both of your helios acting in cohesion.

(Please please PLEASE use the spell-check if you have trouble with English. For all our sakes.)
