Hey all, I have made a list for my 3 favorite Chaos Legions (And ones I already have the models for ) and I was hoping for help choosing the one that will be the most fun and effective.

-World Eaters Killteam-

Aspiring Champion - 225=360
MoK
Power Fist +85
Plasma Pistol +50

2x Chaos Marine - 120=170
MoK
Chainsword +25
Bolt Pistol +25

Chaos Gunner - 130=300
MoK
Meltagun +95
Chainsword +25
Bolt Pistol +25
Camo Gear +5
Telescopic Sight (Melta) +20

Pros: Strong melee presence, probably really fun to play
Cons: Weak shooting, Probably weak against Wyches/Harlies

-Thousand Sons Killteam-

Aspiring Champion - 225=325
MoT
Power Sword +50
Plasma Pistol +50

2x Chaos Marine - 120=180
Boltgun +35
Inferno Bolts +25

Chaos Gunner - 130=205
Flamer +40
Melta Bomb +30
Camo Gear +5

2x Chaos Cultist - 40=55
Autopistol +15

Pros: More bodies than other lists, Solid save modifiers on marines, Nice meat shields
Cons: Cultists die easy and cause bottle tests, Not much high strength shooting to deal with high toughness units or objectives

-Alpha Legion-

Aspiring Champion - 225=325
Undiv
Power Sword +50
Plasma Pistol +50

2x Chaos Marine - 120=155
Undiv
Boltgun +35

Chaos Gunner - 130=365
Undiv
ML w/ F&K +225
Clip Harness +10

Pros: Strong Ranged presence, tough units all around
Cons: Weak melee and objective presence, relatively low mobility (ML doesn't want to be moving much)

I have tried the Alpha Legion list so far, and it seemed decently effective.

Thanks!

The obvious answer being, more artillery.

I would say your World Eater list looks the strongest..

But at the same time I would drop the camo cloaks (more of a Alpha Legion thing) and put a tele sight on the melta

That sounds like a good call on the scope.

My only issue with the World Eaters are that the group so far has 2x Wyches players and a Harlequins player, which might beat me out in combat.

Do you think the pseudo Berzerkers could deal with that?

The obvious answer being, more artillery.

You should be fine tbh..

It is high roll wins... both you and the elder will be rolling 3 dice on average

You have the advantage or higher S, T and Power Armour

With the few exceptions most of their atks will be wounding on 5's and wont modify your save

Also everyone except the champ has parry
