1500pt Slaanesh
Heroes

Exalted Champion of Slaanesh (100)
Mark of Slaanesh (20), Berserker Sword (40), Enchanted Shield (10), Steed of Slaanesh (40)

Mark of Slaanesh (20), Champion (20), Musician (10), Chosen (60)
=275pts

Special Units

=150pts

5 Mounted Daemonettes (150)
=150pts

Rare Units

Fiend of Slaanesh (75)
=75pts

Fiend of Slaanesh (75)
=75pts

Total=1488pts

Champion will either be with a mounted daemonettes or on his own seeing he can break/kill most units by himself. If the army isn't heavy shooting/magic I'll keep him on his own.

The mounted daemonettes will be war machine hunting/marchblocking unit the knights charge in. Then they will combind charges on the units to negate ranks ect.

The mounted daemonettes will also be fast caveral killers since they're quite good at killing small units.

The sorcerer will join the 4 man unit of knights OR stay behind them. He'll be using lore of fire or death mainly.

Spawns are there for scare factor/impact hits and to draw fire. A T5 unbreakable unit with D6+1 impact hits is always nice. Two are just fun.

And they have a 360 charge arch.

C&C Welcome.

Berserker sword is unlikely to make ever give you more than a single extra attack due to the limited base size of the steed. Not much to add otherwise.

The champion on slaanesh steed is on the big square base ( two cavelery bases ) so it he'll get atleast +2 attacks when you count corner to corner.

Out of interest how much is the Pendant of Slaanesh? I seem to remember one of my opponents using that with the Beserker Sword.

Now, I'm not much of a Chaos player but thought I'd stick my oar in as I usually do with your lists! One notable ommision I can see is the Rapturous Standard. I absolutely loath playing against the thing as it can make a unit of Chosen Knights almost unstopable. You'd have to juggle the rest a bit to fit it in but just a thought :)

Cheers,

Pendant is 20pts, basically when I loose a wound I gain an attack for the rest of the game.

Bit pointsless when I have 2 wounds imo.

The banner is nice but I don't have the points to fit it in :(.

Agreed, Pendant is useless on this guy. Must have been on a Lord when I saw it.

Ah... just remembered! It was Pendant of Slaanesh and Blade of Blood combination. It's pretty good, even on a 2 wound wimp. Not sure how much they cost together though.

Nonsense!... something will just have to give :)

Well together they cost 55pts so that guys exalted champion was over points.

As nice as the banner is, I'd benefit from the knights even more.

The sorcery will most likley be using either lore of fire or death.

I'm just not a big fan of shadow for this army.

Fire for lower armour value armys/horde armys. Death for the heavier armour value armys.

I'll most likley use fire against most people.

Doesn't a Slaanesh sorceror have to use the Slaanesh lore... if I recall it's pretty good anyway?

Also, depending on how much extra a Chosen Knight is over a normal Chaos Knight, it might be worth getting rid of the musicians and the champion in the 4 strong unit to upgrade them all to Chosen. Not sure if this is possible though.

Cheers,

enyoss

Chosen on Knights is 12pts per model. So for the 4 man unit it's 48pts.

I was thinking about doing it but the points can be spent better else where.

Dropped a unit of mounted daemonettes for chosen on the knights, a musician and another spawn.

I think two units of mounted daemonettes can do anything three can.

This looks pretty good to me. The only suggestion I can come up with is dropping the Musicians to get either an extra Knight or a Magic Item for your sorceror.

Alternatively, you could drop the Musicians and the Chosen Champion (they're tough enough) to get the Rapturous Standard on one of your units. And no, I won't stop going on about my precious magic banner ;)

just to clear up any misconceptions about enyoss's opponent,

that guy was me, and I used the blade of blood/pendant combo on a slaanesh lord!

I use berserker sword and enchanted shield on my exalteds....

oh yeah.. the list looks pretty solid, maybe lacking some static CR, although at small points games like 1500, unless you play against skaven and goblins all the time, you're not gonna come up against too many fully ranked units

good luck
