ok here is the list:

BUT the question i want to know; would dragon ogres be a good swap for the second group of knights [non chosen]??
The exalted would then be moved to the warrior unit.
i think this would make the list more versatile?

bear in mind you will have to give the Ex Champ the MoS if you take the dragon ogres, if you do give them great weapons and light armour

M_M what the heck are you on about?

Da boyzz.....you called the second unit chosen when you didnt have to,you also put down their cost as 10pts higher than it should be.

If you stick dragon ogres in give them great weapons and light armour as M_M stated.
You will need to find 47 free points for 3 of them somewhere though.

If you want the exalted champion in the unit of warriors with the MoS then he needs the MoS as well. It is not because he'd be taking dragon ogres, but rather because of the decision to put the hero in with the foot troops if he swapped in the dragon ogres.

And if you're looking for a place to drop save a couple of points you could drop the enchanted shield+rending sword+steed off the champion and one warrior out of the unit (still 3 ranks w/champ). Add in the MoS for the champion and it should all fit.

One way to shave points is to use marauders instead of the warriors and put the exalted hero with Helm of Many Eyes and a great weapon instead on the very expensive rending sword. This unit will have a much higher combat potential for cheaper points thus allowing you to afford the dragon ogres. 24 marauders with light armor and shield with full command cost 193 pts. The HoME Exalted costs 129 pts. for a total of 322 pts.

Consider this against the unit/hero combo that costs 441 pts. That is a difference of 114 pts. Quite a savings. 37% more cost for the warriors than the marauder combo. Now you can shore up some of those weaknesses and get your Dragon ogres. Who really cares about the mark of slaanesh on those guys anyways. It's not like it gives you a power dice or a dispell dice. Ok so you don't have to take psych tests. But at ld 8, it is not a bad trade off.
