Next week I have a game against Orks, i'm going to try a list tha's a little different to what I normally run. So i want your opinions/suggestion on changes and tactis.
My opponent runs a very balanced list with a couple of big Mob's, Nobs, some trukz, Bikz even some killa kanz I think.

HQ
Daemon prince,
MoS, Lash of submission, Wings

Daemon prince,
MoS, Lash, Wings

Troop

8 Noise marines, 7x sonic blaster, Blastmaster

10 Chaos Space Marines IoCG
2x Flamer
Champion with power fist
rhino

8 Khorne Berserkers, SC w/p fist
Rhino

Heavy support

Defiler

5 Havocs IoCG
4x missile launcher

2 Obliterators


1498

The plan is mostly just to use lash to group together the mobs and blast marker/pie plate them. Maybe even try to issolate a Big Mek. Meanwhile the oblits tank hunt and or go after Nobs, bikers. The havocs can be used to blast the bunched up troops or go after his trukz etc. Depending on the mission i may use the zerks, CSM and Princes to stick together and spearhead a flank in order to take an objective or into his deployment zone. If not I'll sit back and use them as mobile response to clean up whats left after shooting. It may be advantageous to disembark from the rhino's and use them to slow down the advance and provide cover. I was considering using a small squad of lesser demons mostly as a road block, but they are so fragile that even orkz could shoot them to bits. I could also swap the Havocs for two more oblits, but i think that against orkz the 3 blast templates would be invaluable while being great for taking down trukz. An Iocg would be nice on the Havocs, maybe worth dropping a missile launcher for.

For what you going against this is a solid list. Just wondering are your basic CSM just footslogging because I think they are going to need a rhino. Drop the Havocs to min and get Icon of Chaos Glory would hate to see them run off the board right away. Do you know if he going to be using lootaz?

I'd already payed for their rhino points wise just copied the list wrong. Thanks for the idea for the havocs i think the Iocg will give them more survivability.

Also, whats the consensus on the blastmaster, it seems like an expensive missile launcher. i could swap it for a champ with PW or PF, or even boost numbers.
