Landraider @ 500

So no sane or reasonable general would field a Landraider at 500 points.. so here's the not sane or reasonable list. Now blood angels codex is probably a long way out from being updated, I'd guess it will get as old as the current Black Templars eventually. So this rort may have legs. Cast Shield of Sanguinius on the librarian, affects all units in 6". When inside a transport measure the 6" from the vehicle. Form landraiders around librarian one blocking forward line of sight. Ally with Dark Angels and shroud to cause maximum frustration- 4 + cover save on landraiders...

HQ: Librarian in Power Armour (1#, 100 pts)

Troops: Assault Squad (6#, 315 pts)
   4 Assault Squad, 72 pts = 4 * 18
      1 Sergeant, 28 pts
      1 Land Raider, 215 pts

Troops: Scout Squad (5#, 85 pts)
   1 Scout Squad, 13 pts + Sergeant 23
      4 Scout, 62 pts = 4 * 13 (base cost 13) + Missile Launcher 10
      1 Sergeant, 10 pts


For some reason, I really like Skarbrand. He's a cheap flightless bloodthirster that causes hatred and rage in ALL units within 12". That means if you want to get use out of him you need units that charge 1st and go 1st in close combat. I really don't know how you would do this. Slaanesh daemons is just more wrong than usual. Really big units of chaos space marines with mark of slaanesh in Storm Eagle or Spartan? Lots of little units of slaneesh chaos space marines with champions jumping out of dreadclaws and landraiders?
Anyway it's not very khorne-y. You could go for unmarked spacemarines and mutually assured destruction...
Possessed landraider with dirgecaster seems like throwing good points after bad.
 I had thought dark eldar but apparently they are just as scared of chaos as orks and necrons...

Anyway, getting the bloodthirster on the table at 500 points..

Bloodthirster 250
Bloodletters x10 100
Bloodletters x15 150


Skarbrand 225
Daemonettes 90
Sorcerer 60
Cultists 50
Chaos Marines 75


no skarbrand, but 2 daemonprinces under 500 points lololol

Daemon Prince (slaanesh) 155
Daemon Prince (slaanesh) 155
Daemonettes 90 with instrument of chaos 10
Daemonettes 90

Allies is a bit hard at 500 points, so at 1000


Dark Vengeance painted, now on to 500pts

so my regular opponent wants to start on 500 points

I have some armies I'd like to test, a lot of them actually and at 500 points I have the models to field them all...

At 500 pts you can't field 2 squads of terminators and the special character to unlock them as troops, but you can fit..

HQ: Belial (1#, 190 pts)

Troops: Deathwing Terminator Squad (5#, 245 pts)
   4 Deathwing Terminator Squad, 245 pts = 4 * 44 (base cost 44) + Chainfist x1 5 + Assault Cannon x1 20 + Deathwing Terminator Sergeant 44

Troops: Scout Squad (5#, 65 pts)
   4 Scout Squad, 48 pts = 4 * 12
      1 Sergeant, 17 pts = (base cost 12) + Melta Bombs 5

Is this a clever army? No. Could it be fun, yeh  maybe.
