The board was set up with some ramdom terrain we took turns placing. There were 2 forests, a hill, a lake, a swamp (the styrafoam), and some impassable rocks (the cd). My bro chose to deploy first but I got roll for first turn

(pics at the bottom)

Daemons 1st
The whole army ran forward, baiting the mauraurds on the (my) left with a Bloodcrusher.

WoC 1st
The horsemen ran into the waiting arms of my lone crusher. Everything else advanced rather cautiously, the other hosermen unit ran up to creat a danger zone around the warriors. Anything that moved into charge range of the warriors would be either in range of the Knights or the horsemen.

In magic nothing happened in the entire game so I will no longer mention it.

For shooting the lord toasted the back rank of the bloodletters. In combat the Mauraders butchered the crusher and barely missed my dogs unit in the overrun.

(pics at the bottom)

Deamons 2nd
Everything moved forward, another crusher charged the dogs blocking the knights form my dog unit with skulltaker while some dogs charged Scyla and the thirsted charged the knights next to the chosen. My entire center scooted up a tad while my letters moved up to get charged by horesmen.

Combat, the crusher killed 3 hounds and made them flee while the dogs did 3 wounds to Scyla and remained in combat. Thirster killed all the knights but ran off the board.

Warriors 2nd
Horsemen charged the letters, everything else moved up a bit.

Shooting 5 more letters died to the dragon.

In Combat the letters managed to break the horsemen and the dogs remained locked with Scyla.

Daemons 3rd
Everyhing advanced, my center now in charge range. My slulltaker unit charged the slaanesh warriors along with the crusher.

Combat, my Skulltaker unit did a wound here, a wound there. The slaanesh warriors ended up down by one, but they made their break check. The dogs finally managed to take out Scyla.

Warriors 3rd
Knights charged my dog unit in the middle of my 3 dog units, maurader horsemen reared my skulltaker unit and crusher.

Dragon toasted another couple letters.

Combat, my Skulltaker unit was delt five wounds, did three back and lost by five! After instability I was left with one and a half dogs and Skulltaker. The knights killed a dog and were unscathed, remaining locked in combat.

(sorry no pic for this turn)

Daemons 4th

this turn I killed
1) the remaining Maurader horsemen
2) the Slaanesh warrior unit + wizard
(both with my one and a half dogs and Skulltaker)
3) the chosen unit
(flanked by thirster)
4) the Tzeentch warrior unit + wizard

friendly 'ard boys lists, and a fine rep.
kudos for running mono-god, havy magic might become troublesome, but with so many hounds....

Yeah, I was kinda hoping for a thirster-dragon showdown but we had mathmammered it beforehand and my thirster would win on adverage no matter who charged. Thats why I could never get into combat with him, my broter kept flying it away.

One of the main reasons for the soft lists is because we don't have that many models to choose from.

Do you think that instead of a Lord my brother should run a sorc on dragon?
