I have VC army and want to collect beasts, so I already have decent number of VC wolves-20,unit of centigors,2 beast heroes, some (5-6) confrontation wulfren to be mine ogres/minotaurs, 2 homemade chariots and 1 beastmen regiment.

Beastmen regiments will definately be good. They are great plastic minis and the chances of them being thrown out of the book or redone are nil.
I love the Shaggoth mini but its still up in the air whether the beastmen will keep him in the list.
Good idea on using wulfen as minos. I have quite a few as it is but might have to check that out for myself.
Well, Confrontation died because of disbalance (a road where whfb is heading) but lot of miniature are too good not to use them, like wulfren (so beastie) and, for example, mine favorite doombulls

btw-second one is better (imho) but that iss best picture i could find at the moment.
I will save money to buy more beast heards.

i dont know what im doing here, since beastmen is one of few armies i do not have, but then i read this!
"disbalance (a road where whfb is headed)"
twas only a few years ago that merely every goblin army included a crown of command (10 leadership) and the average 'tyrion'like character would whipe out a 2.000 pts army.
Games workshop is improving, not every step they make is forward, but the big picture is definetly for the good, more models, more armies, yes it makes it hard to balance stuff out, but in my experience id say this:
15 years ago people were complaining more about disbalance then we are now.
pfffff now i need a hot choco
Sorry, didn't play 15 years ago..i started 3 years ago with VC.
Now everyone i know complains about VC and demons...sorry but that sounds like disbalance.
They shouldnt complain all teams are able to lose. I think if you plan out your moves as you go u would probably defeat them.
I wouldn't mind trying to verse deamons or VC. When i do i hope i win. ^-^
At least VC have a weakness ( the general) but the demons what in their army is weak. A demon prince that is it and instead of that all you need is a bloodthirster or any other lord. Anyway enough moaning. Beastmen regiments will not be thrown out and you don't have enough as is so go for them.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
well i had written a massive reply to this thread... and then managed to not send it and navigate off the page! grrr... lol.
simply surmarised -
Don't buy: dragon ogres, minotaurs, chaos trolls, bray shaman
Be careful of: Tuskgor chariots, Chaos Ogres, Shaggoth, Centigors
Buy: Beastherds, Bestigor, beastlord/wargor heroes, hounds.
And looking at what you have already you need 2 beastherds pronto!

Yes, i know, only thing is-are they going to make new models or not...
If i'm a priest, i'm not a saint.
usually a new book comes with an array of new models.
might take a while though. Do you want to wait for new ones or have a bunch ready when it comes?
