Title says it all. I'm currently trying out a Sorceror Lord, so need to fill the void of killy death machine left by my Chaos Lord.

Best Exalted Hero builds?

On foot or mounted?

Either, I have Infantry and Cavalry in my list.

I used to run mine with the sword of power, enchanted shield and the favour of the gods, which comes out at 150 for a Ws7 S6 A4 guy with a 2+ armour save, tends to chop through stuff rather quickly, though there are other options adding the mark of khone, gives you the extra attack, if you want a troop killer you could make it the sword of power the sword of battle, and if your stuggling against wardsaves the other tricksters shard is usefull

Favour is taken on my Chosen. Enchanted shield is free though.... Do you think if I marked him Tzeentch and gave him the Talisman of Preservation and a Great Weapon he'd survive to hit back?

I like to use an exalted with MoK, sword of anti-heroes, enchanted shield and dragonbane gem.

Has 5A at S5, gets +1S and +1A for every character he's fighting and has a 2+ armour save, then a 2+ ward against flaming attacks.

Dragonhelm would be cheaper since Enchanted shield comes at the cost in your armybook, not the rule book. Unless you use the helm on another char already.

Great Weapon, Helm of Many Eyes, Glittering Scales, Mark of Khorne works well for character or unit champion killing (he doesn't need an armour save, striking first at Initiative 6 and with a high potential to get re-rolls to hit on those 5 WS7 STR7 attacks).

On steed, I would wager Sword of Might, Enchanted Shield would suffice quite enough, with perhaps Bloodcurdling Roar.

ASF Helm and Halberd is pretty awesome, especially with MoK AND he can be your BSB who challenges =) I take the Bronze armour of Zhrakk as well.

Mounted I would just change the halberd to the Daemon Sword.

Chaos characters are for challenges so kit to kill and stop from dying against threats in challenges (KB, High Str, etc).
