So I have a 2250 Tournament coming up in a few weeks and I was wondering which army should I bring to it? The tournament is pretty comp/painting heavy, so using a painted/fluffy army should give me a slightly better score.

These are the contenders..

Lizardmen
Slaan in 26-strong TG
25 Saurus
30 Saurus
10 Skrimishers
10 Skrimishers
10 Skrimishers
Ancient Stegadon
Salamander
Salamander

Pros
-great track record with this list, probably 3 or so losses in past 20 games
-75% nicely painted

Cons
-boring to play
-might be downgraded for comp (probably)
-Shadow/Death magic will rip me apart

Daemons
Bloodthirster
Hearld in 34-strong horde Bloodletters
Hearld BSB in 29-strong Bloodletters
12 Bloodletters
6 Flesh Hounds
6 Flesh Hounds

Pros
-90% nicely painted
-probably will do allright for comp (mono Khorne)
-quite tough list

Cons
-buffing magic will rip me apart
-Empire and Dwarves frighten me

Ogres
Slaughtermaster and Tyrant and BSB in 15-strong Irongut unit
6 Bulls with banner
6 Bulls with banner
6 Bulls with banner
40 Gnoblars

Pros
-70% passibly painted
-Its Ogres, so probably less of a comp hit
-points-denial!

Cons
-could really suffer vs Empire or Dwarves
-one trick pony
-haven't playtested it very much

Empire
Bathazar Gelt
Warrior priest in 34-strong unit of Swordsmen (with 10 HG detachment)
BSB in 34 Strong unit of Swordsmen (with 10 HG detachment)
Wizard with rod of power (in one of the swordsment units)
Cannon
Cannon
Mortar
5 Outriders
5 Outriders
Helstorm rocket
Steam Tank

Pros
-overall pretty strong
-cannons are really good against GD and monsters

Cons
-probably comp docked because of Gelt and the amount of shooting
-30% painted

So what do you all have to say? Which list would you suggest I go with?

I should expect to see just about every army there.

I would go with the Daemons, they are the most painted, are fun and interesting to play, and the list still looks pretty competitive.

Lizards, have plenty of tough magic, combat units, and other goodies.

Go for the deamons I run them and they are very effective in horde formation. *Sigh* I LOVE 30+ WS5 S5 Killing blow attacks. :):angel::evilgrin::D And they look Kool too.

Defo Deamons although the BT would get you comp hit quite badly.

Well, as far as practice goes, I've used the Lizardmen list a good amount in the past few games and don't have as much practice with the other lists.

On another note, I realized I didnt have enough Bulls for my Ogres list. So I revised it
