Hey, just wondering if any of you Warhammer veterans could give me a hand by reviewing this lil' ol' army list I'm crafting. I'm not planning on any sort of tournament play, but could you tell me how competitive this list is for club-play?

Foes this army will most likely face on a regular basis will be Dwarves, Wood Elves, Skaven, Orcs, Counts and possibly, in smaller games, Brettonians/Lizardmen.

Core

18 Devoted of Slaanesh
-Full Command
-Speed of Slaanesh

18 Devoted of Slaanesh
-Full Command
-Speed of Slaanesh

12 Daemonettes

Special

6 Mounted Daemonettes

6 Mounted Daemonettes

15 Warriors of Chaos
-Full Command
-H/weapons and Shields
-Mark of Slaanesh

Rare

2 Dark Elf Bolt Throwers + 4 Crew w/ Mark of Slaanesh

Lords & Heroes

High Sorceress
-Lvl 4 Caster - Lore of Slaanesh
-Steed of Slaanesh
-Heart-stone of Darkness
-Armour of Darkness
-Black Staff
-Mark of Slaanesh

I believe that comes around to around 2000pts exactly. Can I have some criticism, please?

I dont see the need for warriors. Drop for some more Mounted Ettes.

This is probably a really dumb question, but can mounted daemonettes be used outside of a cult of Slaanesh army? I'm making a chaos Slaanesh army and I want most of the units to be mounted and they would fit in quite nicely.

Right now they can but when the new demons come out who knows. One Love

There are rules in the new Daemons book for Seekers of Slaanesh (basically Mtd. Daemonettes that can take a command unit and a magic standard). They are much better under the Daemon rules (for approximately the same points), but we'll have to wait until at least the White Dwarf in July to tell us how they work with the Mortals, and maybe even until Nov. and the Mortal book release to be sure.

Thanks for the info. Guess right now is pretty iffy time to start up a chaos army.

Rare

2 Dark Elf Bolt Throwers + 4 Crew w/ Mark of Slaanesh = 100 + 100 + 5 + 5 = 210

Well firstly, I don't know if the high sorceress can have chaos armour.

Ok, you have a list with no anvils and a large amount of very expensive and weak troops. You have odd squad numbers as well. Might you tell us why you run 7 mounted daemonettes?

Your sorceress is rather redundant, she will be easy to attack all by herself on a relatively weak demon mount. She will have 6 power dice to throw, which means she will be completely shut down by most any other magic focussed army you play. This will result in a near quarter of your army being useless.

You then have two reapers with marks which will result in most people seeing a good 210 points ripe for the taking. They wont fit in with your highly aggressive army and then proceed to limit your charge options.

You need to consider the strengths of a cult army: High speed flankers, immune to psych anvils and movement magics. Potentially incorporate some fast cavalry in the form of dark riders without marks as a start.

YO YO fellow slaanesh player.

I would agree with alot of the other ppl.
ur numbers are uneven and would not benefit u in battle.
Also using just one character (sorceress which is rather weak stat wise), unless u add another caster, and only if u want to go magic heavy.
[ dark magic is cool :-P ]

But I think u could work on something more on the lines like this (alter what u see fit)

Core

20 Devoted of Slaanesh
-Full Command
-Speed of Slaanesh
( i would think 2 x this unit is COOL but alot of points for a unit that has no armour, and also u need the extra points for a hard hitting unit seeming u dont have any)


15 Daemonettes .....(15 instead of 14, now u have 2 ranks if u get into combat with a full reg)

5 shades
-Repeater Crossbows

Special

6 Mounted Daemonettes

6 Mounted Daemonettes (these are for flanking )

6 Dark Riders
-Mark of Slaanesh
-Repeater Crossbows (getting there attention & harrasing + shooting)

5 Cold one knights
-full command (possible cool banner)

Rare

2 Dark Elf Bolt Throwers + 4 Crew w/ Mark of Slaanesh (take out heavy armour units or weaker blocks)

Lords & Heroes

Druchii Anointed lev 2 sorcerer
with the cold one kights

Sorceress lev 2
mounted and in the unit of dark riders
2x dispel scrolls

THIS should all fit into 2000pts if not just adjust but i see this working better cos u got hard hitters, fast movers that can kill war machine crew or flank, shooting for tough and weak

reply and let me know what u think :-D

That list is nice. This is what I roughly use to run (Can't find the list).
Druchii Anointed
-cold one
-Quickening Blood
-Draich of dark power
-Think he was a level 2

Sorceress
-level 2
-(forgot what she had)

Noble
(forgot what he had)

Core:
14 Devoted
-Fc
-Speed

15
-fc
-speed

5 shades
-MOS

special:

5 Mounted ettes

5 Mounted ettes

9 cold ones
-FC
-MOS

Rare:

9 Knight of Chaos
-MOS
-FC
-Rap standed

Like I said I don't remember all of it but it worked very well for me. Also I played it in 6th in an escalation leaque so don't know how it would fair now, but took the noble in the one unit of 14 for challenges, Druchii was with the coldones, Sorceress hung around near the other unit of 15. Shades would hunt crews and casters. Mounted ettes for flanking and hunting. Cold ones and Chaos Knights as the main hammer.
