View Full Version : Beginning a Beastmen army - 2400

27-10-2013, 07:31
I am keen to start a Beastman army and was wondering if a list like this would be a good direction to head in. I want to utilize the herdstone for all those extra powerdice so I can really dominate the magic phase.

With scouting harpies, ungor raiders and 3 chariots it should give me enough chaff to control the movement phase and allow my hordes to reach combat.

Anyway criticisms and comments are greatly appreciated.

As good as a Beastmen list is ever going to get, this should do alright if played well. Perhaps there's something to be said for originality in a list but unfortunately Beasts have rather few options if they don't want a good hiding.

Gorgon and cygor belong in a 2400 list , it's a sign of virility!

if you can find the points might be good idea to buy the chalice of dark rain , I actually beat a pure gun line empire army ( 10 war machines I'm talking here) because of this beauty . Was running the old gorgon and giant too :)
its perfect to taking the sting out of your opponents shooting just before you crash in the charge
