Hi guys, had another look at the new book and wrote this list, any feedback would be great :)

Horgoth the Father, Chaos Lord of Nurgle - 359
Mark of Nurgle, Chaos Steed, Hammer of Pestilence, Favour of the Gods,
Word of Agony, Enchanted Shield

Festus the Leechlord - 185
Special Character

Grendel, Sorcerer of Nurgle - 175
Level 2, Conjoined Homunculus, Spell Familiar,

Lednerg, Sorcerer of Tzeentch - 185
Level 2, Disc of Tzeentch, Power Familiar,

--------------------

The Festerhearts, 16 Warriors of Nurgle - 336
Mark of Nurgle, Full Command, Halberds, Rapturous Standard

The Gorefreaks, 21 Marauders of Khorne - 140
Mark of Khorne, Full Command, Great Weapons

The Perversed, 5 Marauder Horsemen of Slaanesh - 91
Mark of Slaanesh, Musician, Flails

(2x) 5 Warhounds of Chaos - 60

--------------------

The Patrons of Plague, 5 Knights of Nurgle - 320
Mark of Nurgle, Full Command, Blasted Standard

The Alter of Sacrifice, Warshrine of Tzeentch - 150
Mark of Tzeentch


So the nurgle sorcerers go with the warriors, the lord with the knights, warshrine boosts marauders and warriors and hopefully i'l have a decent magic phase.

What do you think?

Well personally I feel it's a very balanced list. Good use of marks for the right units.

I can't really criticize it. Though there probably is some other people out there with more experience who can.

Thanks Kornath, probably the quickest reply ive had lol.

hopefully the warshrine will be able to boost me army a bit before i engage.

i just love the new models i want to include them, (especially knights and lord:eek: lol)

Kornath
03-10-2008, 23:18
I feel the same way too about the new models ;)

Whenever I am awake and sit at my pc, I constantly watch a forum where I have posted :)

The warshrine -will- boost your army. So is the will of the dark gods!

Go forth and bring ruination to our enemies!

It seems such a waste to take a chaos alter and no dragon ogre champs, but I can't see any way to fit them in.

Weemo

@ Kornath, yes most definetely, sometimes i do that lol

@ Kalec, i would have liked to squeeze some dragon ogres in but i quite like the list as it is, however the warshrine will hopefully boost my marauders, (4+ ward and stuborn would be so good!)

Im pre-ordering the book today, then its all the money on new WOC! Lol

I may drop a knight and buy the lord distendable maw, bye bye dwarf lords!

Kornath
04-10-2008, 10:35
Distendable Maw is really good, but only if it works though.

I don't know how much I a dwarf Lord has, but if the Distendable Maw fails, you might not feel so good afterwards.

just realised how poor my lords protection is lol, i'l have to have a rethink on him.

To give you a good idea =

Chaos Lord 210 points
-Juggernaught
-Shield
-The Crimson armor of Dargan
-Necrotic Phylactery
-Chaos Runesword
-Bloodcurdling Roar

He is a little expensive, but he will have a +0 AS (If the crimson armor counts as chaos armor), be immune to nurgle/death spells aswell as poison, can't be killing blowed or take multiple wounds. He also has a 12" 2D6 S1 no AS attack.

Chaos Lord
-Mark of Nurgle (you saw that coming)
-Shield
-Daemonic Mount
-Armor of Damnation
-Glaive of Putrifaction
-Acid Ichor

Cheaper (I think) will be a headache to kill, hopefully. If you inflict a wound the character will be S2 and T2 for the rest of the game. In a duel where no one dies and you wound him, he knows that chances of survival are pretty low. For every wound you take that character will take a S4 hit, a little revenge is always nice :)

This guy needs the Mark of Khorne in order to ride a Juggernaut. If he has the MoK you really shouldn't be using Bloodcurdling Roar, and here's why: I can't think of a situation where this Lord on a Jugger would be within 12" of an enemy unit in the shooting phase with LOS where he wouldn't have been forced to charge. Really cautious screening might allow this, but at that point I must wonder if you couldn't just drop the Roar, perhaps for something better like Soporific Musk. You could always give him Diabolic Splendour instead, and enjoy causing fear and panic checks at -1 ld.

The Lord with the MoN looks promising though.

I would take the jugger lord with the glaive. It seems like HERESY, I know, but being able to turn whatever big nasty your opponent used to bait your frenzied lord with into a chump is quite nice. And drop the roar, of course.

Kornath
04-10-2008, 15:48
Oh yeah, my apologies. Forgot about the annoying mark of khorne...

Well there are many different Lords you could make. Personally I would put a lord on something flying and let him cause terror.

For example..

Chaos Lord on dragon/manticore

-Mark of Nurgle
-Crimson armor of Dargan
-Chaos Runesword
-Necrotic Phylactery
-Stream of Corruption
-Acid Ichor

Personally I like the Nurgle Theme.. three breath weapons in one turn? Got to hurt.

Cheers for the ideas but i think this chappy will do very well. . .

Chaos Lord of Nurgle - 359
Mark of Nurgle, Chaos Steed, Hammer of Pestilence*, Favour of the Gods,
Word of Agony, Enchanted Shield

*axe of khorne

Works, 0+ armour, 5 s6 killing blow and more choice on the eye of the gods along with d6 s4 no armour saves once in the game ie when he charges lol!!!


So i chopped the army around a tini bit . . .

Horgoth the Father, Chaos Lord of Nurgle - 359
Mark of Nurgle, Chaos Steed, Hammer of Pestilence, Favour of the Gods,
Word of Agony, Enchanted Shield

Festus the Leechlord - 185
Special Character

Grendel, Sorcerer of Nurgle - 175
Level 2, Conjoined Homunculus, Spell Familiar,

Lednerg, Sorcerer of Tzeentch - 185
Level 2, Disc of Tzeentch, Power Familiar,

--------------------

The Festerhearts, 16 Warriors of Nurgle - 336
Mark of Nurgle, Full Command, Halberds, Rapturous Standard

The Gorefreaks, 21 Marauders of Khorne - 140
Mark of Khorne, Full Command, Great Weapons

The Perversed, 5 Marauder Horsemen of Slaanesh - 91
Mark of Slaanesh, Musician, Flails

--------------------

The Patrons of Plague, 5 Knights of Nurgle - 320
Mark of Nurgle, Full Command, Blasted Standard

The Alter of Sacrifice, Warshrine of Tzeentch - 150
Mark of Tzeentch

i prefer this list as it has a couple of throw away units, a dirty anvil (warriors) some hammers (knights and marauders to an extent) and good support (warshrine, horsemen and hounds).

Better?

that infernal puppet or something, forgot the name... Does it affect ALL the wizards on table? If so, it's pretty powerful methinks...

Weemo
04-10-2008, 20:32
yes it does and im not sure sure myself . . .

Most of the time Miscasting doesnt really happen that often, ofcourse turning a s6 hit on your level 4 into double one would be good but the chances are slim.

even then i dont really like it, i would rather have an extre PD and spell rather than that.

just my 2C

The list is aweful but w/e. Too few troops, shoot/magic the knights and the rest is slow. It will fail like mikes vampire army in that respect.

Nevermind though as you will never do the army anyway.

Oh and do your plague bearers they are actually very good. Look wise and ruleswise. Take that as a rarely given complement from me ;)

Kornath
04-10-2008, 22:04
Harsh words... harsh ones indeed...

EndlessBug
04-10-2008, 22:09
Oh please don't have marked units without a similarly marked character, it's just so... well wrong.

Other than that, im assuming lord mounted goes with knights and the other 2 nurgle guys go into warriors for 6x3 setup. Looks good, but please make the units either nurgle or Tzeentch.

W0lf

Its not harsh, he never finishes armys and the army will fail in game.

Its constructive criticism. Though i am usually V. harsh to weeman.

Weemo

The list is aweful but w/e

i dont think its "aweful":

the knights have a 5+ ward against shooting so they wont die as quickly as you think

also i have the marauder horsemen, and warhounds they're not "slow"

( i just dont see how it is that bad?)

but meh im gonna do it anyway even if you think its rubbish.

thanks for the compliment and yes it is very rare lol

------

@ endlessbug, i think that the new book almost encourages different marks i mean there's nurgle for warriors, tzeentch for the warshrine (and other wardsave models), slaanesh for marauder horsemen and khorne perfect for marauders.

i want chaos warriors cos they look the nuts, i want knights and lord for same reasons.

the warshrine is a great conversion oppertunity

warhounds and marauder horsemen are also lovely models

and i like the chars.

thanks for the replies guys

i dont think its "aweful":

You will never beat mike/me/pat or lee with that list.

But hey i shouldnt blame the list.

Weemo
04-10-2008, 22:29
to be honest i wont beat you/mike/pat or lee anyway even with an "uber army" so who cares
