You certainly do like CSMs with flamers! :D Personally, I'm still on the fence if flamers have trully been improved as an offensive weapon (they are certainly better on the defensive though).

Flamers are just ok, but my concern is that Marine armies are at a disadvantage to Hordes when it comes to controlling objectives. Plus, the unit in general is there to deal with infantry and get on objectives. Flamers just make sense. There are other units that are good at killing monsters, vehicles and TEQs in the list.

I might change out the Leviathans load out to a Grav Flux Bombard and a Siege Drill; Strength 9, AP -5 and 5 Damage against units with the Monster, Vehicle or Titanic keyword is seriously nasty

Ah I see. You expect to fight a lot of horde armies? It makes more sense in that situation.

It seems like horde armies are doing well in general, but yes.

I personally feel like if objectives are the only purpose of the chaos space marines then you might be better off with cultist blobs since cultists can take flamers as well and are cheaper so you get more bodies that need to be knocked off
