Again this is designed for an Ard Boy'z Tournament at the end of November. 3000pts 8th edition Fantasy. Really wanted to include Archaon as I just bought the painted model off of Ebay for basically nothing.

Let us know how this goes - pretty cut & dried standard list for this type of build. Some armies will tear you a new one, some armies will be torn apart instead.

It doesn't have the double deamon prince combo, and lacks magic

BUT the BSB can't take Mark of Nurgle!

Well he can but then he can't join a unit with MoK - so you may want to rethink that....

Also MoK on the Chariots is amazing - can't overlook the fact that both riders and both steeds gain the extra attack in this case...

Finally - you also get style points now because it's basically a Khorne army led by the 3 eyed King himself - VERY fluffy

Thanks for the reply. After playtesting I found this list just doesn't have the staying power. There's just not enough wounds in the army. But my opponents sure did like playing against this list. They were totally scared at first. Need to really avoid those horde units that dish out strength 5 and higher attacks.

How did Archaon himself do? Did he claim any notable scalps or achieve anything huge in any of thr games you played?
