This is somewhat of a fluff list. Maybe it looks powerful because of the
Knights but I have very small units and no magic/anti-magic.

It looks something like this:

Exalted Hero
MoK
Juggernaut
Shield
Chaos Runesword

Exalted Hero
MoN
Daemonic Mount
Glaive of Putrefaction
Shield

Exalted Hero
MoT
Daemonic Mount
Chaos Runeshield
Great Weapon

Exalted Hero
MoS
Daemonic Mount
Father of Blades
Shield

10x Marauders
MoS

10x Marauders
Mos

10x Marauders

5x Chaos Knights
MoK
Standard

5x Chaos Knights
MoN
Standard

5x Chaos Knights
MoT
Standard

5x Chaos Knights
MoS
Standard

List total 1998

Each Exalted Hero will join a unit of Knights that share the same mark
to boost that unit since they are missing their unit Champion.
As soon as they make contact with enemy units they will issue
challenges to get their Eye of the God's rolls.

The Marauders deploy one on each flank to try and make for the
enemy rear as fast as they can. The Knights line up shoulder to
shoulder and drive down the center.

This is a silly list I know, but its pure fun.

You need one more core unit. 3 is the minimum at 2000 points.

Ahhh, I sure did miss that. Guess I can drop the Marauder Horsemen for Marauder's

So replace the Horsemen with three units of 10x Marauders two with the Mark
of Slaanesh. I fixed the above list.

Guess I an use them from getting my flanks hit for a turn or two.

I was thinking that for magic I could convert the MoN and MoT Heros
to level 1 Sorcerer's and give them each a dispel scroll.

Dont do it man, dont loose the fluff.

I do this army without the knights and with M Cav instead- its fun and wins a few game.

I have Warhounds- "Unleash the dogs of War!" and not much else.

I get smashed by a single lvl 4 and no mistake, but still its good fun..................

Ward.

I see 3 units of marauders, that's enough core for 2000 points.

Unless you edited it already, in which case all is fine although fitting in a unit of marauder horsemen/ some hound screens wouldn't be a bad idea.

Why not put them all in a single unit of Knights just big enough to let them survive until they get there.

Put the Banner of Rage on the unit, make one of the Knights a BSB with the Stubborn Banner.

Take enough Marauder Cav and Hounds so you can actually charge something with this monster.

Hey, give it a try and see how it does. It's hard to go wrong with knights, and I'm sure both players would have a lot of fun.

If I were to do it it would be something like this:
Exalted Hero
Mark of Khorne
Juggernaut
Chaos Runeshield
Shield
Total 230

Exalted Hero
Mark of Nurgle
Chaos Steed
Collar of Khorne
Glaive of Putrefaction
Shield
Total 196

Exalted Hero
Mark of Slaanesh
Chaos Steed
Axe of Khorne
Shield
Total 181

Exalted Hero
Mark of Tzeentch
Chaos Steed
Shield
BSB
Banner of the Gods
Total 291

9 Chaos Knights
Standard and Champion
Banner of Rage
Mark of Tzeentch
Total 455

Marauder cav and Warhounds to fill.

Just plop those characters into the Knights (6 wide counting the Jugger as 1 model) and hope to make it to the enemy.
The unit has a 6+ ward, enemies in BtB are -1WS, the front rank spits out 20 character attacks, 13 steed attacks and 7 knight attacks, the unit is permanently Frenzied (so permanently ItP and can not be autobroken), Stubborn, has a Terror causer, re-rolls Panic, has Magic Resistance 2 and gets a BSB re-roll for Breaktests.

It's not a VC Deathstar, but it's pretty damn close.

Looks find to me as is, if it's got a good paint job and you insist on playing Wagner all the way through the game then you get a moral victory from me regardless :D

Yeah.

Thanks for that. I guess I'll just scrap my plan for actually building this incredibly versatile and useful army now! :rolleyes:

So if I drop them all in the same block of Knights and I want to issue a challenge which
one would fight? Do I get to pick the one of my choice?

Yeah you get to pick who issues or accepts challenges. It's basically a very, very ridiculous suggestion, though it might be fun for a game or two now and then.

The four horsemen should ride together though ;)
