With 8th edition rumours around, I thought that this kind of list might actually be viable. I already have 4000 points of DE so im looking to Extend it, and I've always wanted to make a Cult of Khaine list, 8th is my time to do it.

This is mostly for fun, Im not looking for tournament level of competitivness, but just enough to win a few friendly games here and there.

I'm struggling with the optimal build for my Master on the Manticore, I kind of wanted Death Piercer, Armour of Darkness, but I want the Ring of Hotek in there too.

It's a good theme to follow, and I like the list especially the Grand Carnifex from Malus Darkblade. My only criticism is that you have too many points being taken up in characters, and not enough in men. Plus it could do with a few redirectors to help getting those awesome infantry blocks into combat with the right targets. Harpies would fulfil the role perfectly as if I remember correctly they come from Har Ganeth or are related to Khaine in someway.

Also the level 4 cannot join any of those units due to them having the khainite rule, maybe a block of spearmen could be used for him.

I've not got my Dark Elf book to hand but I'm sure assassins don't count as core, so you'll need to fit in a few more core choices.

The Executioner's unit is gonna be a massive fire magnet. And t3 low armour does not a good fire magnet make.

The Sorceress cannot join a khainite unit. She'll have to run alone or you'll need some spearmen or something. If you're giving her the Dagger then spearmen are effectively cheap powerdice. You'll also have to be very careful with the RoH around. Remember, it affects your mages too.

I think you have too few units too, you'll be outnumbered by everyone at 3k with only 3 infantry blocks. All of which are subject to frenzy so can be manipulated easily. You need some dross/ redirectors to counter this.

Damn it lol, I totally forgot about the sect enmity thing.

Man, I'm so bummed now.

As for Assassins they actually are a Core choice but don't count towards Core choices, which might not matter in about 1 month when the new 8th edition comes out.

Yea I know all about the ring and and all that, I'm pretty good at keeping them apart from each other.

I agree about the more units thing, I was just thinking about adding Harpies today at work.

The problem is adding more units, Characters are really needed to make this list work, now im not sure what to do, i'll try and figure something out.

I've revamped the List and unfortunately there will be no Grand-Carnifex *sigh.

Remember 8th edition rumours are that Frenzy can be avoided with a Leadership check, which will help this army out greatly.
