I think tbh other than best combat core (chaos warriors) and best shooting core (wood elves or DE Xbowmen) you can fill in the rest with the daemon book and take your pick

Best magic hero/lord: Clan pestilence plague priest. Guaranteed to get the plague spell no matter what? Hell yes.
best combat hero/lord: A tooled out dreadlord can be hard to kill and can dish out some serious damage. Aspiring champions are good too, but they don't need gear to suppliment them.
best shooting hero/lord: Don't know

best shooting core: empire hunstman, scout + skirmish = win. Yeah, they aren't that great at dealing damage though. March blocking is what I like them forl
best combat core: saurus warriors. Better for the points than Chaos warriors.
best magic core : horrors

best shooting special: I like chameleon skinks just for the scout and skirmish.
best combat special: Chaos knights. Just damn good for the points. *edit* Sratch that. Flesh hounds.

best shooting rare: flamers
best combat rare: hydra

This is a really long list :(

Maybe something shorter so you can get more responses?

I'll answer these though:

Best Lord Choice : Bloodthirster
Best Hero choice : Skulltaker on Jugger
Best Core choice : Either Dark Riders or Dryads for their cost effectiveness.
Best Special choice : Black Guard
Best Rare choice : Flamers or Hydra

Best magic hero/lord: Teclis
best combat hero/lord: Bloodthirster
best shooting hero/lord: Alter Noble

best shooting core: Thunderers
best combat core: Chaos Warriors
best magic core : Horrors

best shooting special: Grudge Thrower w/ Rune of Penetration, Rune of Accuracy and Rune of Burning.
best combat special: Black Guard

best shooting rare: Flamers or Hydra, depends on whether you ignore the Hydra
best combat rare: Hydra or Flamers, depends on if you charge the Flamers and lose 90% of your guys from Stand and Shoot for combat res.

the grudgethrower isn't legal anymore

So why is the Grudgethrower illegal?

Am I missing something?

he nice thread, nice to see so many different views on this. I havn't thought about most of this, but best Core is definitely the 6-point orc with choppa and shield or skavenslaves (the old ones with the shackles, thats subjective though)

Back in the day it was the night goblins with the go first banner and double handed weapons! Nasty little unit.
