Two years ago I won the best painted army award at the local Christmas tournament; price was a Lord of Nurgle model. As I was thinking about starting a second Warhammer army at the time (something different from my trusty Empire break test failers), I accepted this sign from the gods and started to paint and the search for cheap second hand miniatures...

Now I have taken up the challenge to get this army ready for the next Christmas Tournament (18 december), so I made up a list based on these rules:
* 2000 points and legal ;-)
* minimize the number of models to paint
* maximize the use of models already combat ready
Resulting in this list (all comments welcome, no playtests done yet):
2000 Pts - Chaos Roster - Nurgle's Christmas Circus
1 Great Unclean One @ 600 Pts
1 Chaos Sorcerer @ 170 Pts
