Sadly not enough points for another Torment Blade, oh well. Being unable to draw from the Lord points really sucks.

Total: 1996/2000 (99.80%)

8 Units to deploy before Characters
86 Models

The only thing I'm not sure of in this list are the 5 Seekers, which unless I take Lore of Life instead of Beast, will die pretty fast.

Slots no longer exist, so... 8th is coming out this week, I don't need to point out which edition I'm making a list of especially with % written quite clearly.

Have you even read the book?
Slots no longer exist, the only restriction is that you can't have the same rare more than twice under 3000 pts and can't have the same special more than 3 times under 3000 pts.

Above 3000 pts this changes to 4x the same rare and 6x the same special.

So yes I can have 2 units of fiends and 2 units of flamers

ignorance here, but why 17 demonettes in each unit? points? or some master plan?

its almost similar to an army i had in mind, but i wanted more seekers cos the models are cool, and maybe the masque.

Points are rather limited at 2000 pts yes.. x;
17+ herald is 18 models, 6x3

I could of course make the units bigger if I dropped Seekers.

I'll definitely use The Masque at high points games, Lords cost too much so I have to use all the hero points I can.

Isn't the Masque a dirt-cheap hero choice?

Yeah, but she ain't free! 500pts makes it difficult to squeeze 3 heralds in. Although i admit, i question the usefulness of great icon of despair without her, as -2 LD isn't really enough to really put the pressure on.

Also, are the champions really necessary? I understand you wish to avoid challenges by nasty things on your heroes, but often now, challenges are safer places to be! Moreover, combats are rarely 1 phase anymore, so your herald will still get chopped if needs be.

You also really lack anti-armour too. Obviously, you will be seeing less cavalry spam, but WoC/empire/dwarfs/LM will almost certainly be bringing some armoured dudes. S4 armour piercing does not a tin-can opener make. Obviously, bolt of change and maybe amber spear (or buffing with +strength) goes some way to blowing stuff up, but relying on 1 unit for your effective anti-hardcore units is... risky.
