No you can take 2, you can only take one in less than 2000 points

No holes in that list, for sure....although you may want to drop the third unit of flesh hounds and put in some furies, for warmachine hunting. Otherwise you can guarantee that every bolt thrower and cannon will aim straight for that thirster. Having other flyers around might give the other player something else to worry about.

Notice that 5 hounds break to fast, try to go 2x6 instead. If you want to hide your herald in unit of dogs go 5+7, trust me :). 1 unit of furies and +1 flamer :)

Simple situation. Hounds attack block of infantry. Your CR is -5 form the beginning(ranks+stand+US), with 14At you cause 4-5 wounds, so you lose combat anyway(damn musician). You break and lose 1-2 hounds total. Next turn wont be so easy now - you lost 2-4At. Now consider 5 dogs from the beginning... your charge will hit the wall. 2 hounds = 4wounds, 4attacks, huge difrence.

I give you a ten for power and a one for army comp. :cheese:

I say go for it. Be a good sport during your games and you should be fine.

just have multiple units charging.... like 2 units of hounds or BT and hounds....

1 unit of furies and +1 flamer

2 blocks of 6 Flesh Hounds over 2.

Don't get the +1 Flamer, instead, put either Firestorm Blade or Axe of Khorne on your BT. You need to think really hard about this one because it all depends on Metagame. Whatever it is, you need something to eat through Regen (Hydras and Drakenhof Banner comes to mind).

So with those changes what does that make the list look like?

axe of khorne over firestorm blade...High Elves and their immunity would break that...personally I don't think you need it because the 'thirster will get to choose what to charge rather than the other way around. Deal with the hydra/hasselhoff some other way. Flamers?

I think the list is sound as it is, with maybe some furies needed (2250 add furies but shouldn't be to much of a problem at 2k)

Utter filth in terms of comp...but if you are winning 20-0 and getting good soft scores (apart from comp) you should be fine.

Depends if there's even High Elves in your area.. which is what I meant when I said metagame.

Firestorm Blade will be good against everything else. Hydras in particular since you can't KB them.

It's a little weak in magic, what with the 5PD and 4DD. I guess you are just counting on MR to keep them from damaging you too much?
