I'm repainting my beastmen to make a more themed army. i don't like using tons of magic items i use ones that are easy to come by like pelt of the dark young (its just some puke and wee on his fur anyone can have it). the only problem its hard to make my characters survive and not give away hugh points. Help?

pelt of the dark young
crown of hornes
heavy armour
shield =299
(fights in one of the bestigor units)

Wargor

i'd recommend the gore tooth for your beastlord, bear's anger is probably more useful than a lot of the tzeentch spells.

also, don't think you can give both units of bestigors the mark of tzeentch, think you're restricted to one marked herd per army.

Greetings Grimlock....I have some thoughts/comments for your list, hope they help...


*Beast Lord: Ok,...different for sure...

*BSB: Ok, but to make him more effective and last longer, Armor of Damnation and Sword of Might is a nice combo...Poisoned Attacks are nice on Shooting, or Close Combat units that hit hard...Beast Herds still bounce their S(3) hits off of most Armies...

*Wargors: Ok...but I don't think you need him...kind of wasted points to me...


*Beast Herds: Well, I think you have way too many...I always recommend taking only two unis max in a 2,000pts list...they tend to get in each other's way, cause unwanted Panic Checks all over, and really can't beat much in Close Combat...

*Bestigors: Sasha is correct in that you may only have one unit Marked in your Army...really, really bad decision on GW's part here, and I'm sure they realize it...anyways, I'd say go with theme and take a unit of 18 w/FC and the Gore Banner...

*Minotaurs: Great units for Tzeentch...but the Standards are giving away 100 VPs most of the time and not the helpful in CC...Minos win big or loose big...Xtra Hand Weapons looks cool on the model, but not nearly as effective as the Grt Wpns unless you're facing Elves or Brets....


*NEEDED UNITS: Your Army is slow and a bit ponderous, with little punch...relying upon Magic to win the day isn't a good idea...Chaos Furies and Centigors will add both much needed Speed and some decent hitting strength that is manuverable...Dragon Ogres are serious can openers and threats that draw the attention of your opponent...

I think you should use the super herd with tzeetch. One really big unit with the punch of a few characters and 360 LoS shooting. Say 8 gor/ 15 ungor with BSB and another wargor of Tzeetch.
