Here's the topic: if you had access to every choice in every book what would your 2000 point fantasy list look like?
Undead with Helblasters? Dragons and Tomb King chariots? A Black Orc leading choas hordes or Wild Riders advancing with a Steam Tank backed up by Flamers?
A couple of ground rules:
-Core, Rare, Hero, and Special numbers stay the same
-Characters and units can only take legal magic gear from their book.
-2000 point limit
Have at it. Cheesy, broken, and just plain wrong lists are encouraged.

Definately, hands down, without a doubt: Night Goblin hero leading a unit of Bloodthirsters.

I'd want a Bloodthirster, some Horrors, some Flesh Hounds, and some Flamers, with maybe some bloodletters and heralds.

Would anyone take anything from BoC, Tomb Kings, or Orcs?

I think necromancers without undead units wouldn't really be that effective. They would only create new units. Would a Cauldron or Anvil be on anyones list?

BoC -> Core chariots? Marked Tzeentch aswell.
Tomb kings -> Scorpions and SSC with skulls of the foe
Orcs -> spirit totem on black orc bsb.

Assuming it would take up the army's unit choices...
BoC - Nah.
TK - Nah.
Orcs - Night goblins units w/ fanatics & maybe a squig unit for ***** and giggles. :)

Vampire counts, Full mages, with any dice adding magic items from any and all other armies. (preferably to pass em all trough to the vamps) (and indeed maybe a teclis or so)
Undead & Units with with magic dice adding banners/effects from any and all other armies. (like the high elf banner)
oh and of course a bunch of horrors. just to have some additional dice.

oh and lots of High elven bolt throwers.

of course done from the basis of a bretonnian army list so i can have some more heroes. (if that doesnt work from the basis of a High elf list, so i can have more special/rare)

Edit: so thats what a undead high elf list that traveled trough the chaos wastes would look like.. :p

I would get some really, really, really hitty hero with a runefang. (Chaos Lord on dragon? Elf? Vampire?)

And then every piece of cannon fodder I can get my hands on-men at arms, goblins, skaven. Supported by three great cannons, and three high elf mages.

And the skaven ability to shoot into combat.

A Vampire Lord + 3 Vampires, magispammed with multiple Power Stones
3x 10 Horrors
Lots and lots of Jezzails
Couple of war machines to flavour


Burn all the stones to make a Zombie wall, then just obliterate everything on the other side of it.

I won't come up with an exact list because I just don't have that kind of time, but I think this would be my general idea:

Vampire Lord with Infinite Hatred, Red Fury, Beguile, Balefire Spike, Nightshroud, Cursed Book, Wrist of Black Gold, Power Stone, +1 Magic Level on a zombie dragon
Heroes: 1x Bret. scroll caddy on horse
DE BSB w/ Hydrabanner on horse
1x Liche Priest w/ jar and whatever else

Core Units: Horrors... & zombie / TK skeleton deathstars :)

Special Units: Dwarf grudge throwers, 1 w/ rune of accuracy & 2x rune of penetrating and then 1 w/ rune of accuracy, rune of penetrating & rune of burning
Chaos Knights
tomb scropion

Rare Units: blood knights
flamers

Something like:

Vampire Lord: Red Fury, Infinite Hatred, Beguile, Blood Drinker, Walach's Bloody Hauberk, Black Periapt, Nightmare OR Valkia

Wight King: BSB, Skeletal Steed w/ barding, Drakenhof Banner

Spellsinger: Staff of Sorcery, Asyendi's Bane

Chaos Sorceror: Level 2, Skull of Katam, Mark of Tzeentch

2 Warshrines

A couple of Zombie units

As many Chosen as possible with full command, Mark of Tzeentch, champion has Favour of the Gods, Blasted Standard or Rapturous Standard.

Wow, really fun thread; I just keep making armies which are funny rather than effective!

But for an effective list, something along the lines of:

Vamp Lord, with Ghoul kin, summon ghouls, helm and book
Wight Lord with Drakenhoff
Iron Breakers with rune of Courage
2 Ghoul units
2 units of Chaos Knights of Khorne
2 Units of Skink skirmishers
Giant
Organ Gun
Scar-Vet with Great Wep and Jag charm
some great eagles... I think i've run out of points!

Wight Lord sits in the immune to fear and terror Iron Breakers, making them regen, with the organ gun as support, while everything else crushes one flank!

Not bad, but that's 2500 points...

It's kinda surprising that a lot of these dream list feature a fair amount and balance of magic, shooting, and hth. I thought people would go much more one dimensional.

Hmm what about this.

Lord Kroak
unit of 10ish temple guard

11 BoC Chariots of Tzeentch.
