Hi Guys,

ive got a game in a week: Tzeentch mortals (me) vs khorne motals, 2000pts

My armylist is posted in my painting log, i think he will have big units of knights, warriors and marauders backed up with so bloodletters.

Any help cheers?

there was a good thread about getting the best out of your magic phase on here a few months ago, i would find it and follow what was in there or you could have problems casting anything and that would be a problem as that is the only adnvantage you really have over mortal khorne.

Exalted Champion 271pts
Great weapon, Mark of Tzeentch, shield, Crimson Armour of Dargan, Golden Eye and Disc of Tzeentch.
- Whats the point in a great weapon, its only strength 7 when on foot, i would drop the armour of dargan and take sword of might and add a shield. You know i would be tempted to drop this guy and the hero below and have a lord of staff of change, being a khorne player i know just how hard it is to caste spells against me, if he ihas half a clue on what he is doing it will just ignore the lower spells (D6 strength D6 hits, not all that amazing)

Aspiring Champion 154pts
Great weapon and Mark of Tzeentch.
- If you dont do what i said above then pay the extra 20pts for a exalted, he is far better for so little, i would also consider a halberd, sure its only strength 6 but you strike in I order

Aspiring Champion 172pts
Great Weapon, Mark of Tzeentch, shield and barded steed.
- if you want strength 7 go for a flail, if you want constant strength halberd, upgarde to a Exalted and take adavantage of them amazing stats

Chaos Warriors (15) 325pts
Hand weapon, heavy armour, shield and Mark of Tzeentch. Full command and The Flesh Banner.
- Well i have to say tzeentch warriors really arnt all that good (none are really but if your like me then i guess you use them for the funky models), they really need extra hand weapons to win combat, sadly you lack the static combat res. A warbanner however would help abit

Chaos Knights (5) 285pts
Hand weapon, heavy armour, shield, barded steed and Mark of Tzeentch. Full command and The Blasted Standard.
- Fine but i would make them chosen

Chaos Chariot (1) 140pts Halberd and Mark of Tzeentch.

Warhounds (6) 36pts

Warhounds (6) 36pts
- all the above fine

Minotaurs (4) 216pts
Two hand weapons and Mark of Tzeentch. Standard.
- drop the standard, its just easy VPs

Horrors of Tzeentch (10) 200pts
Claws. 2 Flamers.
- personally i dont rate these, furies would be far better for march blocking, that or marauder horsmen, with such a low unit strength i doubt they are going to be doing alot.

Screamers of Tzeentch (5) 165pts
- Cool

Personally i hate to say it but i dont rate Tzeentch magic all that high, its ok but i dont think its really game wining, at the very least take exalted rather than aspiring champions, that extra 20 points for WS, I & A is well worth it.

So very true
