Cuz if I get sick, I get really really sick. And I am at work. Awesome!!! Tonight I am going to bed early as hell. Blargh... But enough of my whining, post for today is my Chaos list I will be using at tournaments and thoughts on changes etc and other options I can use for future games.
First, why I am playing Chaos for tournaments instead of my big bug list? Well big bugs is kinda boring. And not really the most fair if the games are not the most competitive. Hard Tournaments at BFG will be Big Bugs and then most other tournaments will be Chaos and Orks when I get them finished up. Hell if Orks are kickin ass I might just use them most of the time.
Onto the Chaos List

My own thoughts on it. Everything scores in this list. That helps since I have two HQ that are annoying to deal with and can cause lots of issues if within range etc. I have found, the only way to make sure Lash is effective is to have 2. That way you can guarantee that you are dragging someone +10 inches most of the time. The two chosen squads are used as a way to assault particularly annoying units after they have been dragged out (ie Dakka Fexes). The Noise marines just put out an insane amount of fire and can help deal with horde armies that are most likely coming (hooray orks). Of course 2 squads of Lascannons to take out vehicles, put a hurt on Fexes, and just to put a hurt on any other type of Monstrous Creature.
I uped the amount of guys per squad, due to wanting to lessen the chance to get hurt by randomly losing armor save rolls. And it makes it easier to keep them scoring. I am not so sure about the chosen. In a lot of ways I am wondering if they are throw away units and I would end up doing better with either another lascannon squad and a raptor squad instead of them? But the threat of 13 power fist attacks hitting whatever unit takes it, is pretty gross.
What do you think?
