Not sure if this would be any good or not, but it has a lot of stuff I like. I am not too worried about being highly competitive, but can this win? However, I am trying to keep 8th Edition in mind (via rumors). Any thoughts?

Just FYI, current rumour is that Dispel Scrolls are no longer multiple choice but do work as currently (i.e. Auto-dispel, but only one per army).

I feel 8 magic levels is too much for 2d6 Power Dice, especially when you have no power-stones or warpstone tokens. I'd drop both Priests to 1, and take something more useful for combat/survival in their allowance. Given the Lord limit at 3000 is 750, I'd put some more kit on your Grey Seer - I'd take a Warpistol and tailweapon and a powerstone, myself (38 points).

Given that you have two frenzied units, I would take more expendable units as charge-cover be it a couple of 6x1 Ratpacks, or smaller slave units, depending on your taste (the dropped levels on the priests alone would pay for this).

Thoughts? Better? Worse?

2 Doomwheels and 1 HPA make this list pretty disgusting, paired with 2 furnaces as well. Hard list, I would not play it in a friendly environment.

I think only 1 unit of PMs can have a magic banner.

If I need to, I can cut some stuff, like the Engineer, for extra goodies once the new rulebook comes out. This may be my final "to-buy" list, since I think it cover all my bases. The only other unit I am thinking of getting are some PCBs, just to have for variety sake. Perhaps even another HPA, for the same reason.

I am sorry, but how is having two HPAs a way to have some variety? I agree with the previous poster - not a list for friendly environments (2 Furnaces? 2 Doomwheels? HPA?).

i personaly like this list but i would suggest a BSB with a war banner, he would boost combat res and ake your army less prone to vacate the table.
i run a list much like this one and it works out very well for me

It is variety in the sense that I can run either a mix of Doomwheels and HPA, instead of being stuck with the current set-up. How is that not variety? Also, I disagree about this "friendly" environment nonsense. How is handicapping an army "friendly"? I prefer to use the tools the armybook offers and if opponents can't learn to cope, they need to go play D&D or something.

I will see what I can do there. Probably a good idea. The Engineer might be able to get squeezed out for that, perhaps.

rather ten having the doom wheels i would say 2 warpcannons and use the extra points to bump up the plague monks to 30 and bump up the clan rats the most you can if you have any points left over from the monks. besides that it seems pretty brutal.

Hope this helps ^_^,

Jeff

Thinking of tossing the BSB to add 5 more Monks to each unit. Thoughts on that?

Just reworking it a bit. Not sure how this compares to the original, but I figure I can test them out.

this list doesnt work with the new force organization but it looks deadly and a lot like what i wanna run

em_en_oh_pee

...and how does it not work? Is there something in the FAQ or some such?

I like the list. I agree, freindly nonsense is not what we deal in. But you say about using all the tools at your desposal. I agree, but whta can happen is that differant people write differant books to differant strengths ('cough' - Gav thorpe/Deamons - 'cough'). And people sometimes limit that to what they feel is decent

And, yeah, how is the list not legal skarekrow07?
