pendant on a 2w sorc hero seems pretty useless

Sorry, that was meant to be swapped out for conjoined Houmoncoulous before posting. Duly amended

I was wondering if a slaaneshi sorceror was really worth it at the end of the day. Has the lore performed for anyone?

I think that ecstatic seizures should be fun against horde units, lots of guys with low toughness, not to mention if you use a lvl 4 sorc lord it cast on an 8!
But with remains in play spells getting better in 8th ed the lore should be better, just not against ITP armies.

I like all of the infantry you are using, but I'm a little disappointed that you didn't make a creative name for your second unit of chaos warriors.

your warrior and chosen units need to be way bigger. I would recomend removing the not-named warriors, and putting in more chosen and making your other warrior unit a bit bigger. This will chunk up your army, to keep up with the 8th ed trend

@Skullduggery- the second warrior unit is meant to be the Lascivious blades. Not sure why i forgot to add it in.

@Thesherriff- I can see where you're coming from. Im just wary about cutting down on the number of units i have. I saw a hefty Black orc unit all but decimated from one spell in this edition! I will run a few games with the warriors bulked up like you suggest though

for chaos warriors and chosen i feel that 20 is a good number too. They have the killy/surviving power to make up for less models.

But there balck orcs. You are warriors of chaos, who never run away, have tonnes more attacks, better aermour, Ws, Strength, everything!. And what spell was it?. Must have been pretty powerfull to take out black orcs

The purple sun of Xereus, the roving pit of shades one from the lore of death. I know my initiative is plenty higher but by god it's a horrendous spell.

I'll try the warriors at a larger size. Im comfortable with 20 chosen however.
