I like that list. Talk about loads of firepower. Have you tried it yet, or is the test coming up?

So, thoughts and some analysis here.

Blastmasters are good, the deny cover is amazing, huge huge selling feature.
Heldrakes are stupid good, possibly one of the best units in the game.

All that said, heavy hitters are needed, if not for killing MEQ, but because if someone else brings a heavy hitter, and you dont have one, your screwed! Tim has proven this a few times to me, and the last tournament also made it very clear as my lord just wasnt able to hit hard, or often, enough.

So that said, heres the current iteration.

Chaos Lord, MoS, Brand, Power Axe, Sigil
Daemon Prince, DoS, Wings, Power Armour, Black Mace

5 Noise Marines, Doom Siren, LC, Blastmaster, Rhino
5 Noise Marines, Blastmaster
5 Noise Marines, Blastmaster

Heldrake (Baleflamer)
Heldrake (Baleflamer)
2 Spawn

Predator, TL Las, Las

Keeper of Secrets, Lvl 3 (Telepathy), Exalted Gift, Greater Gift
10 Daemonettes

This gives me a few heavy hitters, some decent marine count which is all fearless, and the Heldrakes applying a lot of pressure. The Keeper brings the Portalglyph, hopefully dropping a few more scoring units down.

The pred + spawn is 200 points. I was thinking of Havocs + Quad Gun, but then I lose the pred, and only have a single rhino on the field...

So this army is nearly 'built' with some paints still on the way.

Lord - Build Complete
DP - Need bits
3 x 5 Noise marines (2 Siren, 3 Blasmaster, 2 Rhino/Havoc) - Build Complete
2 Heldrake - One needing some build work still.
Pred - Build Complete

Keeper - Need to clean up the dreads, greenstuff the joints.
10 Daemonettes - Build Complete

-------------

As I always do when I near completing the build of an army, I get bored and start looking for greener pastures. Sad

1. Do I build up the Daemons side? Keeping it Slaanesh?
2. Do I build up some Khorne CSM? I really dont think I can do that again.
3. Do I buy some Tau?
4. Do I get back into DE?

What I think I am missing is the mobility and shooting. Tau and DE can do this, but thats about it.

Tau do offer a lot of neat options, both in playing and modelling

Yeah I wrote up a few lists, may be cost prohibitive to do it though, lots of Broadsides, Riptides.

The DE however still remain (relative of course) cheap, and I did like that army a lot.
