Lvl 2 Sorcerer with spell Familiar. 135 pts

20 Warriors. Standard and Musican, Sheilds. MoT + Blasted Standard. 410 pts

10 Marauders,flails. (Sorcerer goes here)

5 Knights 200pts

Hell Cannon 205pts

1000pts total

What do you think? and how could i improve it. I only have 16 marauders in total.

I would not put the sorcerer in a marauder unit. Especially a small unit of 10. They are going to die very fast. Marauders are good because they a cheap, you can compensate the low T and armour with sheer number.

I don't remember if your sorcerer has to have the MoT to go with the Warrior ? IMO it's a better bunker for him. Personally I would give him a Disc of Tzeentch.

Finally I never had to face a Hellcanon but it seems a bit overkill in 1000 points.

I'd drop the marauders and one warrior and add two units of five Chaos Hounds. Stick the sorcerer into the warriors, he should be pretty save in there. You can buy him the Charmed Shield with the leftover points.

Adding two units of hounds like said above would make this a pretty solid, if very elite, list for 100 points. You'll have some nearly impossible to kill troops, but also be outnumbered pretty badly. The dogs will help keep your flanks safe while your knights and warriors butcher stuff and your hellcannon does troubleshooting.

I agree with dragonet, a helcannon might be a bit too much. There were games when my helcannon killed off half of my friends army, before he got into close combat. Now I don't use it anymore.
You could also drop your knights and then buy a horde of 40 gw/flail marauders with MOK and full command. You could also drop the helcannon instead of the knights.

Hellcannon is unpredicatable. If it hits, **** dies fast. If it misses, it's 200 points doing jack all.

For a 1,000 point game, do you guys think its better to have less figures but more units, so you can flank? Or just a few big units?
