Okay so the idea is a fast, combat oriented TzDL that does not use a lot of magic and instead relies on manoevrability and combined charges to win. SO I chose Be'Lakor whose innate abilities compliment the army a lot. He gives the entire army a -1 to hit vs shooting so most units will ahve -2 to hit!

If this is a complete waste of time please let me know. If it will NEVER work tell me now and I'll add more magic but I really like the idea and hope it works.

Characters:
Be'Lakor @ 650pts

Core:
12 Horrors @ 180pts
12 Horrors @ 180pts
3 Screamers @ 99pts
3 Screamers @ 99pts
6 Furies @ 90pts

Special:
3 Changebringers @ 210pts
3 Changebringers @ 210pts

Rare:
Chariot of Tzeentch @ 140pts
Chariot of Tzeentch @ 140pts

1998pts

You would still want a Herald in one of the Chariots and your units of Furies ad Screamers should include at least two more Daemons.

Two units of five screamers? Nah. Too expensive IMO. Four is enough. Also, the furies unit is just fine the way it is, but two extra wouldn't hurt. The herald is an absolute must. More magical power and a very hitty character. Drop one chariot or something to get the points.

I was simply saying that units of 3 screamers are too small and that if he takes screamers, they should be taken in units of 4 or 5, not that he was supposed to upp both their numbers.

And I agree with you on the chariot-dropping, if he puts the Herald in the remaining Tzeentch Chariot, he will now have two rankbreaking units, both of which fly and can be rather painful to face in close combat.

It's a fairly stereotypical Flying Circus like set up.

tzeench chariots are US3 so the inclusion of a herald does not make em rank breakers...

Yup. Thought so.

And in light of browsing the rumours about 7th Ed I'm now putting this on the backburner (all I have bought so far is Be'Lakor and a load of magnets so I can swap around that goes on the discs/chariots etc.) as there are apparently gonna be changes to the magic system which may benefit/hurt me.
