I figure, with the stuff I've ordered, I now have enough models to reach that nice 2500 points mark. So why not post a list? I am in the process of equipping and converting my ogres and my exalted hero (the awesome Gamesday 2009 model), so it's time to consider how to model them. How 'bout the stuff I've given them in this list, for example? And what about the list as a whole? My goal is for it to be fluffy and at least somewhat friendly, but effective none the less.

I've thus far had some success with the skeleton of this list in my gaming group (no ogres, no bsb, one unit of horsemen less), especially compared to the abysmal track record of my Tomb Kings. The dragon is good, but spends at least one turn per game eating itself, while exalted heroes on discs does seem very effective. I don't really see why people on this forum consider Infernal Gateway so bad, considering how powerful Flickering Fire seem compared to the basic spells of other lores. Maybe I've just been lucky with my strength rolls for Flickering Fire...

Basically, the many small units tries to engage and destroy the enemy support units so that my greater mobility will allow me to isolate, outmaneuver and destroy knights and infantry blocks. The 12 chaos warriors, the horsemen with flails and the dragon are certainly capable of winning against infantry blocks, if the circumstances are right; the warriors might even try to engage squishy targets head-on, given the amount of damage they're able to put out on the charge. The Chosen and the two-weapon ogres are for countercharging (but suicide attacks just to decimate enemy infantry certainly isn't out of the question), while the great weapon ogres will help dealing with touch, armored targets, hopefully. The dragon, the sorcerers and the exalted hero will generally prioritize tough but small units like knights, using their magic to blast them to bits and their flight to get a good charge in. And spells like Treason and Gateway are very good versus infantry blocks, if I can get them off.
