Default army list vs CSM


Im new to this forum, so hello
I was wondering what list would be best vs CSM. Very shortly I will be playing vs a friend of mine, who is probably going to field
- 3 rhino's with
- 1 khorne berserker squad
- 2 plague/space marine squads
- daemon prince
- vindicator

My current list =
- 1 tervigon with catalyst (casting on the hormagaunts)
- 28 hormagaunts with toxinsacs
- 1 zoanthrope
- 4 genestealers + 1 broodlord (all with toxin sacs and scything talons)
- 3 tyranid warriors (lash whip+bonesword, scything talons and toxin sacs)
- 10 gargoyles
- 1 carnifex with scything talons and a heavy venom cannon

It is always very hard to destroy any vehicle, even the rhino's. This is the first time I field a carnifex with a heavy venom cannon to destroy some vehicles. Is this a good choice or does someone has a better idea for a 1000 point list? Also asking for any future battles because killing tanks seems to be a real difficult task.

*twitch* zoanthrope... many a game I've lost because that dammed thing took out my command tank, or my monolith...
between that and the carnifex, you should be fine from vehicles, if you get the placement right...
although with all of the toxin sacks, if they fall, you're going to be screwed...
just don't screw up the tactics, and you should be fine...
good luck, and have fun!

Ok, thx.I think buying an extra zoanthrope would be the best choice. Only downside with those things is, is that they are slow and range 18".....

You should be able to hit his tank(s) by turn 3 at most. You have your work cut out for you but just keep plugging away. Some might disagree but my concern would be the squads, vin and prince. Rhinos, depending on what is equiped, are easy pickins and not much fire power.

Your numbers and CC is your friend, they can't shoot you if you are tied up in their troops.
