Hi guys,

following the advice of PiD I'll just go ahead and post a list I've been working on for the next Dark Stormy Knights (II) tournament which takes place in november in Bergen, Norway.

I wanted an army that's fast, deadly (having played with dwarves, O&G and Ogre Kingdoms before) and capable of taking all comers.

First the list:
- Exalted Champion:
- enchanted shield
- Mark of Khorne
- Juggeraut of Khorne
- Blade of Blood

- Exalted Daemon:
- Mark of Khorne
- Soul Hunger

- 1 Chariot

- 1 Chariot

- 5 Mounted Marauders (F.C., spears and shields)

- 5 Mounted Marauders (F.C., spears and shields)

- 5 Warhounds

- 5 Warhounds

- 5 Knights (F.C., Mark of khorne)

- 5 Knights (F.C., Mark of Khorne)

- 3 Dragon Ogres (extra hand weapons)

- 6 Flesh Hounds

- 6 Furies

This leaves me with 30 points with which I can do the following:
- add 5 warhounds
- another gift for the daemon (although he's pricey enough as it is)
- 1 Mark of Khorne on a chariot
- 2 more flesh hounds or furies

A previous list contained 10 centigors with full command and spears instead of the second unit Knights, but I left them out because they were probably gonna be too unreliable.

I could also tone down the Knights to 4 a piece with only a musician, which leaves me with another 146 pts to spend (which I'll prolly do, because I feel that the 5-man Knight units are too expensive as they are now).

What do you guys think?

Cheers,
BG

A few pointers, first, don't post individual points costs, breaks forum rules and it gets hard to read if you don't even sum up the points total.

Second, Marauder Horsemen does a lot better armed with humble flails and only led by a single Musician, they're a lot better at baiting, they punch a lot harder and is generally less dangerous to loose, it also saves quite a few points, arround 30 actually... on both units.

For these 60 points, get a unit of 5 Warhounds and get two more Furies, these small changes will make the army that much more potent on the damage output level.

one thing you are missing is S6+ attacks...

you idealy want some form of S7 attack for killing chariots, but also for dealing with pesky 1+ saves.. [giving the dragon ogre's great weapons would solve this but it does depend on if you have the models]

apart from that Neknoh knows his stuff very well...

lol, check your mail. It seems like great minds think alike :D

I also here want to voice my opinion on the ED. I think the mark of khorne on an exhalted daemon renders it quite unwieldy - it's a fragile piece of bloodthirsty miniature that needs to be able to choose it's fights. With a US of 3 and only 4 attacks, it really does not hit that hard. To keep it unmarked, on the onther hand (undivided) and use it as a warmachine hunter, lone character hunter and terror spreader, now that looks better in my book.

It's not that it's a poor choice, it's just that I see it so ******* difficult to use with mark of khorne. (incidentally, I'm thinking of bringing my own ED with mark of nurgle and the vomit gift)

Laters,

Think of the one fact that makes it usable, it isn't a Large Target, and thus, it can be screened, however, if the opponent manages to present only a single flank from a big and ranked unit when you've positioned it, problems are going to arrise, as the opponent doesn't even have to reposition to deal with it.

but is it really worth it, knowing that you hvae t use your furies to baby sit him as screeners, or keeping him behind hounds or whatever- just for that extra attack and a DD? I say he's a liability. A frikkin liability! :eek:

He's a loose cannon cop, on the edge, playing by nobody's rules. not even his own.
