Final tournament list

With the quick game I played on Wednesday, and the advice I've received here (thanks!) and elsewhere, I've refined and submitted my 500 point Chaos list for the doubles tournament. I've submitted it now, so there's no going back.

Daemon Prince, Mark of Nurgle, Wings, Warptime (175)
6 Plague Marines, 2 with melta guns (158)
Rhino with dozer blade (40)
Vindicator (125)

From the general chat around the club, I think most people are going to be bringing small model count armies, with ridiculous vehicles or characters (I suspect we'll see alot of Land Raiders for example), hence I went with Warptime rather than Nurgle's Rot. Mark of Nurgle gives him an extra push so he won't be so easily wounded.

Having experimented with plain Chaos Space Marines, I decided to go for Plague Marines, even though I get fewer models. I intend to keep these inside the Rhino as much as possible and snipe with the melta guns. Finally the vindicator gives me both anti-horde and anti-tank capabilites.

There we go. It's the practice games next week, then the tournament starts the week after.

I think its a good make-up for 500 points - I guess who your get paired up with will ultimately determine how you will play the army. The plague marines in the rhion are going to be great for objective grabbing and the vindicator and prince are just great all around! Let us know how it all goes.

I needed somewhere to comment on your "About You"...

Your comment...
"12 year break from 95 to 07! "

Not only am I in the same club but so are hundreds of others ! It seems that once you are bitten by the GW bug there is no escape. Once you have been bitten and are hooked then you cannot escape, evetually you will be back !

Nice blog,
