You need more core choices and less charakters, nurgel magic isent good so take one Sorcerer and make him to dispel scroll cady.

Swap the filth mace on the first ex. champ for sword of might and talisman of protection, far better value for points. On the second champ swap the additional hand weapon, again same points, but with S7 he's more likely to do more wounds than with an extra attack.

Apart from that, there's nothing I'd really change. Looks a little small, but that's probably just the skaven in me talking. ;)

Definantly too much in characters. two exalted chapmions with GW are all you need, mabey gaze on your general and book of secrets on the other for the dice. Nurgle magic is good but only take one wizard because of points restriction. Make him lv2 and give him two scrolls, this means you can throw 3 dice a one spell and two at another which isn't bad. Make the warriors chosen as regular warriors aren't great. Apart from that i'd say it was ok

Nurgle magic is actually quite useful, especially for killing charicters but thats not the topic of this thred.

Defenatly too many points in charicters and no lord, you definatly want him to boost your army to ld 9

I would suggest you get yourself a bestherd to add a little more bulk and manouverability to your army for very few points

You could also use some more hitting power, if your going to play nurgle then I would take advantage of the 4+ save of nurgle minotaurs with great weapons. They can dish out a hell of alot of pain

Depending on what you want to do and who your regular opponents are I would use brayshamans insted of mortal wizards, they are cheaper and can move around alot faster to avoid any unwanted conflicts if they are by themselves.

If you need a few more points to impliment any changes you want I would suggest taking off the mark of nurgle on your warriors, they probably want be outnumbering anybody and opponents still have to make fear tests if just a fear causing charicter is in the unit

Its not too bad, but you're not taking advantage of the main bonus from fear, that beaing the autobreak by outnumbering. i would defintately suggest, if you're not planning to do it already, putting a nurgle character, maybe even an aspiring champ BSB, into a unit of 29 marauders. then i believe they cause fear?

also, it looks like you've put a sorceror as your general... i thought a sorceror could only be t he general if there were no other characters present except aspiring champs?? :)

only charicter causes fear, not the marauders, for cheapish outnumbering i would go for pestigors

02-04-2005, 17:40
Drop some of the points used in the characters, get a lord for the ld 9. Mabye get a unit of pestigors and some beast herds to screen. Chaos war hounds are always nice to use as flankers, flank protectors or as screens. Nurgle magic I find is ok, but mabye drop one sorc and use only one as a scroll caddie. I dunno just sum random suggestions I thought up.

Drop characters to Exalted champ and wizz caddie or lord and caddie but i would rather go for 1 asp and 1 exalt and one caddie - you will be enought for most lords not cc oriented ( you can always double team them ) and have much more versality.

Maruders go best in units of 20 and warriors 15 or 16 ( i would use 15 - 5x3 ) or get 14 and add asp ut there.

Get only one swarm of nurglings as thay will not deny rank bonus - skirmishers

bust fureis to 8 and drop one maruder horsman unit - but take the other to 6 and haunds

Oh heck - I can't help myslef

Take minotaurs insted of trolls, they get a 4+ save with mark of nurgle, dont suffer from stupidity, presue 3d6 insted of 2, can get 3 s6(great weapons) ws and i 4 attacks, a single one of them can take out most charicters (good for taking out a bsb in a unit... stupid griffon banner)

03-04-2005, 10:16
Yeah i know but trolls are much more nurglish - besides i dont realy play nurgle ( mostly khorne and tzeensh )
