NOT CHEESY?

No im sorry, this list is about as cheesy as it gets, i hope the title was sarcastic.

Edit: Id actually be very curious to see what constitutes cheesey in your book, please tell me!

I read the title and honestly just thought "Unpossible..."

Glad to see it was satire.

If you use the Dread Knight power instead of the Avatar of Dung you will:

save three points per character
get a better armor save (2+)
get an extra horsey attck

You wont get an extra horse attack because he bought them all nightmares anyway.

You'll lose 3 power dice for only +1 armour, considering he has regeneration, the save isnt that important. Losing the lances is a bummer though.

I love the armie, dont have to think to much while playing the game, just move forward and figure out when and how often its worth giving away 50vp:s :D

It's a good list - when folks started running it at GT, it was considered almost unbeatable. Now people have figured out the weaknesses to it. Lore of Metal and Light will tear it up - Beast Cowers will take all that cavalry out of the game. Vaul's Unmaking to take out the banner, pound the black knight unit with flaming artillery, flank it, cast Word of Pain on it, etc. etc. Your other units (besides the Blood Knights) are really too small to do a whole lot.
I'm still working out a Slann & EOTG list now, but I can tell you I'd luv to play against this one.

Are Deathstars the best way to play, competitively, or are they one-trick ponies where specific things can kill it, and is therefore not competitive?

Post that list, would be an exciting read im sure!

As far as the list I posted (deathstar or what it is), ive tried it for three games the other day, it was really powerfull for sure. Not limited at all. Next time I promised to play my sons O&Gs instead, more fun...
