as stated in the title this is a first gen list and i was experimenting allot with magic items and tactics. today was the first time i had played the list against scaven, and for 5 turns with lots of ups and downs and we had to call the game because the store we were playing at was closing but we called a draw. i will include the entire army list then a small explanation as to why each character has each item and so on and so forth. some stuff is out of the hoards of chaos book. i will abbreviate but later i will include a "key" of sorts to the abbreviation's.
to start things off
gaze of the gods
1 bray shaman
the dark heart
the gore tooth
next on to core
2 beast heards
total (separate) 139
2 units of 5 warhounds
army total 1000 on the dot
mon = mark of nurgle
gw = great weapon
la = light armor
fc = full command
lvl = level
to start the explanation of unit choice i will start with core i chose the two beast heards because i have to have them plus they are very good in combat. the war hounds are screening/flanking units.
the minotaurs are there to hit hard and hit fast.
the wargor is for some extra combat res and that leadership bubble he is also there in case i need a few units to go ambush.
the bray shaman with undivided will usually take lore of beasts for bears anger and whatever else he gets. i intend to run him with the unit that dosn't have the wargor.
the bray shaman with mark of nurgle is there for magic missiles and to weaken the characters my wargor wants to challenge. or to do damage to those pesky blocks of units.
tell me what you think
Please don't post individual unit costs which have no options added in the future. Many thanks GN

In the name of the god Emperor of mankind we clense the stars of the witch, the heretic, the mutant, and the zeno for we are his hammer we are the impereal guard and we smash our foes with one great strike for the Emperor, for the Emperor, for the Emperor.
I think the best use of Nurgle in a beast army is in a Doombull / Minotaur list at 2K, so your on the right track with the Minotours. Drop their standard though.
Id also suggest dropping the banners fron the Beast Herds. They are another unit likely to loose them to the enemy.
Not sure why im working backwards, but oh well. Onto Characters. At a low points level, i think beast Characters are best kept cheap. Saying that, the wargors setup is firly tough. Just make sure you have a Spawn model, no doubt you will need it.
Possibly loose the magic items from the Brays though, especially the Gore tooth. You can auto select the Bears Anger spell anyway, and Bloodgreed wont work if he is in a unit. As for hatred, he only has 2A so its not really worth it. The Dark Heart can be handy, but just adds to the cost of an already expensive and unarmoured model.
