yo callum i like this list very nice

with your 150pts you could try takeing
two spawn
some cheap beast herds
three minotaurs
two dragon ogres

if it was my army. i would take the two spawns on some more hounds
use the spawn to hold up units and you can take two as a rare choice

personally i would never take a shaggoth as my lord choice as it is just not wroth losing the ambush special rule
also i would drop the mark of slannesh from your wargor and leave him as undivided as he will have to join a beast herd and so will lose the immune to psychology special rule anyway
i am also a little woried that you have invested a little too many points into your brayshamans

as for your beastherds i have often found that shields should never be anywhere in the herd, the protection they offer the ungor is minimal at best and it is not worth sacrificing the plus 1 attack for the gor

I am also not a big fan of chaos ogres, especially such a large number in what is essentially meant to be a horde army

overall i would say that your armies got quite a bit of hitting power if used right, but it is small (not much larger than my 1000pt) as does not have much in the way of staying power

Ummm, why have you made your shaggoth your general, you lose the ambush rule and he doesn't need the mark of slaanesh he causes terror.

04-01-2007, 06:10
He has the highest leadership, no?

yes, well he has the mark of slaanesh so that he goes first with a great weapon... simple really =D

Isn't that only for daemonic generals.

No the Shaggot is immun to psykologi from the start so instead the slanesh gives him strike first. I have tried with a shaggot as general in the last eddition and it works OK. ld 9 to the beastmen helps much...

it's an old, tired peice of advice, but you should have more ungors than gors in a herd, you pay less points for the same unit strength and rank bonus, you might even get a few extra spear attacks in combat if your first 2 ranks arent solely made up of gors.

The box sets are backwards, 12 ungor to 8 gor is about right, and yeah, drop the shields
