Here's a 1,500 points list i've been thinking up with 5th edition in mind. I think it would work quite effectively but any critisism would be helpfull. I've not gone double lash which is something people seem to be ranting on about in forums and tacticas but i don't really think it's needed.
This force is designed around the idea that troops will become increasingly common and so i will not be in dire need of a particular squad or tank dedicated to anti-armour (such as the all-out-lascanon predator I used to use). Bearing this in mind however I have armed all of the champs and lord with melta bombs so that (with the exception of the rhinos) every squad/model has a fair chance of damaging any vehicles that it needs to.

Code: Select all
HQ
Daemon Prince - MoS, wings, Lash of Submission - 155
Lord - MoS, Blissgiver, meltabombs, wings - 160

Troops
8 Noise marines, 1 Champion with power weapon, doom siren and melta bombs, Rhino - 265

8 Noise marines, 1 Champion with power weapon, doom siren and melta bombs, Rhino - 265

8 Noise marines with 2 Sonic blasters, 1 Champion with power weapon, doom siren and melta bombs - 240

8 Noise marines with 2 Sonic blasters, 1 Champion with power weapon, doom siren and melta bombs - 240

Heavy support
Defiler - 2 additional CC weapons - 150

Total - 1,475


This leaves me with 25 points to play with. The obvious choice would be 5 extra sonic blasters i supose. What do people think? Cheers

im not much of a chaos lover but this seems quite balanced,

HOWEVER... is that many melta bombs required? i would drop a couple and use the left over points to upgrade something else, the daemon or sumthing.

Eg, are the noise marines without a rhino gonna need melta bombs, my idea would be the rhinos rushing forward NM jumping out and blowing tanks etc

just a possibility, i wundt know what to use the spare points on,

Good point
Theres nothing else to put on the daemon prince that would be any more valuable than melta bombs. I supose it could go towards 2 sonic blasters. then the 25 left over could buy another noise marine with sonic blaster or just the two seperately depending on where i want the extra man.
I think il leave it as it currently is before I go ordering loads of sonic blasters and stuff as it'l probably be best to sus out the new rules for myself first. Il post back after a few games with the new rules and say how im geting on with slaanesh. :)

I'm rubbish with making slannesh lists I'm afraid but the rule of cool in me suggests that the lord might be best served on a mount of slannesh, an extra attack and the chances of storming right the length of the table to engage a target makes him like the emperors champion or something
(move fleet charge-19-24"s + you may have pulled the enemy using the DPs lash too :D ) all that for 10 points :twisted:
