Chaos Codex Quandary!

Well, I finally broke down and got the Chaos Space Marines Codex. Now what the heck am I supposed to do with it?

I need to come up with a strategy, an army list to fulfill that strategy, and something that comes in under the 200 points limitation I have proscribed myself (pretty much all I play now is Killteams, due to my attention span). Furthermore, I need to make it something that I can easily achieve either on the cheap, or with things I already have. Most likely with things I already have. Fluff wise, I am primarily drawn to the Night Lords, since their focus on Terror/Stealth/SpecOps makes them perfect for Killteams, at least to my way of thinking.

So, what are people using to represent Night Lords these days? Comments, feedback, suggestions, and even riebald jokes are welcome!

For Kill teams I would use the following:

7 Chosen Marines
2 Melta guns
Champ with Power weapon

total points 196

That's seven infiltrating models that act as individuals in KT's. Plus that fits the spec ops feel of Night Lords.

Good stuff! Re-read the Chosen section after I saw your post, and this looks good! Thanks for the help...I like playing lists where the story matches the models matches the play style, but I am terrible at making army lists.

I am going to be having a Kill teams game on Monday night, will let you know how it goes!

Very Kool, glad I could help! Chosen are the best choice in the Chaos Marine dex for kill teams, because they are so versatile!

I look forward to hearing how it goes!
