Hey guys. I recently decided to go chaos, and since I hardly ever see anyone who plays Plague Marines at my local shop I decided it was high time someone did. I've worked this list a bit since I got it and a guy on one of my facebook groups suggested that I try Nurgle Bikers. So here's what I have so far:

HQ
Chaos Lord
-Bike
-MoN
-Daemon Weapon
180 pts

Troops
3 * Plague Marine Squads
1. 8 man
-Champion
-Power Fist
-2 * meltaguns
-Rhino w/ Extra Armor

2. 8 man
-Champion
-Power Fist
-2 * Plasmaguns
-Rhino w/ Extra Armour

3. 8 man
-Champion
-Power Weapon
-2 * Flamer
-Rhino w/ Extra Armour

Fast Attack
Chaos Bikers * 8
-Icon of Nurgle
-Champion
-Power Weapon

Heavy Support
Chaos Vindicator
-Daemonic Possession

Obliterator Cult * 1

Obliterator Cult * 1

That rounds up to about 1696.

Well maybe the guy above me (chillin) is a bit tired because I see lots of things which arent good:

1 vindi is bad (easily destroyed, been corrected by DemetriiTZ)
extra armour on rhinos is not worth it (almost 50% of the rhinos cost)
Try to take oblits in pairs (kill points)
Never power weapons on Plague marines (initiative 3)
Bikers are not worth it, too expensive and right now 1 walker/MC can hold up your whole squad! Because you havent got a power fist in the squad!

Everything Zhukov says is correct, except for the Vindicator comment -- Yeah, one sucks, but only because it can be easily focus-fired and destroyed. I know you have Possession, so shaken and stunned are a non-issue.. but with less than 2 Vindis, they quickly become expensive paperweights.

Hehe, no problem Zhukov. Happens to the best of us!

So I went through and reworked the list a bit. The bikers did seem to lack a bit of punch, and I was debating on whether or not to go with mark of khorne. I might in the future but for now they'll stay infection riddled and pussing! (Yum ;))

Here's what I came up with.

Chaos Lord
-Mon
-DW
-Bike
-Meltabombs

Chaos Bikers * 8
-Champion w/Power Fist
-Icon of Nurgle

Plague Marines * 8
-Champion
-Power Fist
-2 * Flamer
-Rhino

Plague Marines * 8
-Champion
-Power Fist
-2 * Meltaguns
-Rhino

Plague Marines * 8
-Champion
-Power Fist
-2 * Plasma Guns
-Rhino

Vindicator
-Daemonic Possession
-Havoc Launcher

Obliterator Cult * 2

Total 1696

I'm keeping the bikes because I think they're cool and tough as nails (plus I already bought the first couple models. Waste not want not! :P). Without the Extra Armour on the rhinos I have plenty of flexing room with my list now, it was almost difficult to make it out to 1700. Thanks for the constructive criticism guys. Keep it coming!
