Baisc idea is march the blocks of great wielding frenzied cheap marauders vs the enemy, screening with hounds or warmachine+ lone wizard hunt, dispell caddy for magic prot, and hack to victory. Blunt and powerful.

Are yor sure you can take two dispel scrolls?

My bad!

Thanks for pointing it out, no I cant. So strike it and instead a magic level on the sorc and remove 2 marauders from the block with the general and bsb.

I would definitely swap the great weapon for a halberd on the lord, i tend to find S6 is enough and the loss of initiative is huge. i would then drop 1 horde and 1 unit of hounds for 14 warriors in ranks of 7 with halberd, shield, MoK and full command. this tots in at 298 but packs way more punch and has way better survive ability.

Thanks for the advice but its bad advice. 14 warriors in two ranks? Look at the rest of the army, those 14 warriors would be the prime target as most shooting will make them useless before they hit home. Their armor save is all but lost vs many shooting attacks. They only got 14 wounds vs 40 in the other units. They would be far weaker in all aspects of the game.

I like it, though how do you plan to counter
1) shooting (for instance skaven weapon teams)
2) Large monsters with small bases? - agianst a HPA, 5 marauders get to strike, meaning 20 attacks, 10 hits, 3,3 wounds, 1,65 with regen. 2 of these will take time to grind down.

Also, crown of command + Dragon helm is chessy :P (from a fluff point of view), unless your BSB has two heads that is

Also, since your magic defense is a bit weak, maybe take the puppet, to really reward your opponent for throwing down 6 dice spell.

"Exalted hero bsb 200 pts

you should add some warriors..your list lacks the punch you will need. i think you spent too many points into characters...

It does lack something, but I wouldn't have said warriors. Marauders with great weapons do have a tendency of mincing units.

Personally I'd say lose the Lord. Yes, he's lovely and hitty, but he's just not worth it at over 300pts. I mean, you're spending almost 700pts on characters, in a 1500pts army - that's just too much. Either take a exalted + chaos sorcerer, or sorc lord + exalted hero.

With some of the extra points floating around, look into taking a hellcannon. Adds a nice bit of ranged damage, something you badly lack as one lv2 isn't going to be setting the world on fire in the magic department either. Plus, failing that, the odd thunderstomp is always helpful!

Lacks punch? there are 120 great weapon wielding Marauders in there?? With a Mark of Khorne! How can that lack punch?? Agree with the points thing, although for such a small list this may not be too bad since the troops are cheap...

I like it! I think you could definitely have a bunch of fun with it! I personally love the marauder idea of just throwing huge blocks of them at the opponent. The only thing I would change would be to make all your characters khorne related, I just like theme lists :)

Have Fun!
