No dragons in favor of more support units. I find the army is very manuverable and competes well in both the shooting and combat phases. Any comments would be appreciated.

With three hydras, the ring of hotek, pendant on dreadlord and ASF BG, people will call this list extremely cheesy and many will not want to fight against you. Good in a competitive setting, very bad in a friendly setting.

It should work very well though. You may have a problem against magic heavy armies such as vampire counts, you have basically nothing to stop the majoirty of there invocations and dance of macabre which will be cast multiple times on two or one dice. And wind of undead is not targetted so it will not be affected by the ring.

It's for Ard Boyz

Ard Boyz still want to have fun.

That sounds like a song.

Love the army. Very beardy (as it should be!) However how about changing the assassins for something else? Assassins don't hit hard enough for 'Ard Boyz IMHO..

Good luck!

Who said they didn't?

I think that's probably true. You could turn the Cold One units into line breakers for the points spent on the Assassins.

Removing the Rune of Khaine Assassin would give me the points for the master with 2x null talismans I have been trying to fit in to avoid someone vaul's unmaking or bubosing the ring away. I am quite fond of rending star assassin's ability to take out large targets and charriots with ease though. I will have to put more thought into taking him out. If I did, it would probably be for another scroll caddy, for more anti vampire support. Thanks for the idea!

Updated the list. Dropped the Rune of Khaine Assassin and beastmaster's scourge in favor of 3xNull Talisman Master and an Enchanted Shield on my BSB. This will protect my BSB more in the first mission, and give the BG unit immunity to magic, unless I am REALLY unlucky.
