So yesterday I put a cheeky bid on an auction and ended up winning what could possibly be one of the greatest deals I’ll ever find!
Almost 2000 points of older WoC models for NZ$45.40, so roughly US$36


I now own:


40 Warriors w/ 2x full command
12 Knights w/ full command
2 chariots


So the first thing I did is whip up a list using what I have and chucked in some of my direwolves as warhounds. So having never played as warriors before, tell me how this looks?

I've decided to change the BSB's set up to Helm of Many eyes + Dawnstone. As a High Elf player I missed my rerolls greatly, so rerolling to hit with him is great.

I also am thinking about halberds instead of the extra hand weapons, will probably mean dropping 2 warriors out of the larger unit though.

I'm not a fan of Helm OME especially where you're sitting on ld 8. Even with a reroll it will occasionally fail and he'll be stupid. I'd rather have sword of striking so you'll be hitting on 2+ mostly anyway and it's cheaper.

I would go Halberds on warriors, mainly because EHW only affects the front rank so maybe +7 attacks? I'd prefer all the 30 odd attacks to be strength 5. Maybe have one of each if you're not sure.

Other than that it's a cool warrior list, not often do you see a WoC with mainly warriors!

In my opinion WOCs has more limits in game stiles than other armies, you have to run and get in CC as fast as you can. Under this aspect a 100% khorne army means that if you face an opponent who brings enough cheap redirectors you will never see the close combact phase. I can see a unit of SK ( u have no choice for them) or a flanking unit of 10xwarriors of khorne to burst some damage but I would not go full Khorne unless you are really into the fluff / roleplay.
