I've been out of the 40k loop for awhile and I'm looking to get back in. I want an assault based army (Due to all the cover saves now) and I think Khorne will be just the ticket.

The plan is to drive up with the land raiders and kill everything, while the summoned deamons sit on objectives.
The list should be close to 2000, I apologize if it's way off, I haven't got the C:CSM yet.
One change to make would be to drop the deamons and dreads for 2 more squads of 'zerks in rhinos.

Let me know what you think: Too hard, too soft, going to get smashed by Mech-eldar etc. I really haven't played in a long time and I've only played a few smaller games of 5th ed.

I'm not seeing much in the way of anti-tank, besides the power-fists.

Mechanized eldar will certainly be a pain for you, as will Tau with railgun spam, and Dark Eldar Raider spam. You'll wreck gunline armies and footsloggers, but you have a very big problem actually kicking people out of their tin cans to assault them.

If some one turtles up, I'll just use the twin-lascannons on all the raiders to open transports and such. The raiders are also my main anti-tank.

land raiders arent good anti tank, because you are paying premium points for getting those berzerkers into combat. If you stand and shoot you arent moving, and you will not outshoot oponents which you need to outshoot like, indeed, mech eldar. It just doesnt work, we dont have PotMS or something like that.

You stand and shoot? Wasting lots of points...
Moving? No anti tank.

I'm open to messages if you want help or advice from me.

 

You can ask me anything.

Zhukov is right it is either or with landraiders. That is why I think you need to drop possession from them and get only extra armor. I know that is only 15 points saved but even with twin linked you would rather have the BS. Other then that unless you want to make dramatic changes to your concept I say go with it and see how it works. Lance armies are really going to be your bane though.
