It's still possible to use Minotaurs as a core units if your general is a Doom Bull?
In the past army book it was clear, but in the new I can't really find if u can or not.
And.... If u can, its possible if u play 1k points and choose a Hero Bull as general?
You can't find it because it isn't there, you have to have alternative core options now.
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Oh, another question pls.. The beast that are no more on the last army list, are still possible to hire? Like Ogres.. or Trolls... if yes, which is their cost?
At 1K you can get:
-gorebull w/ many armed fiend, ramhorn helm, gnarled hide, additional hand wep and heavy armour
-2 units of 5 ungor raiders
-2 units of 3 minotaurs w/ shields, musician and standard
-1 unit of 4 minotaurs w/ great weapons, musician and standard
nearest you can get to lots of minotaurs at 1K, no ogres or trolls in the new book unfortunately
Although admittedly at 1000pts it is better to increase the size of the ungor raiders to 7-8 strong and have one of them in ambush. Firepower units are your biggest concern with these sort of lists so it is easy to forget about the small guys despite the fact they can do quite a lot.
When you get to higher points levels an obscene combination is a very large unit of ungors with spears, shields and full command led by a gorbull BSB with the beast banner. You get frenzied ungors fighting with two strength 4 attacks each with the second rank also adding its attacks. Throw in the fact they are movement 5/charge and march 10, immune to fear, terror and panic, add +5 static combat resolution (+6 if you outnumber) as well as re-rolling break tests and you have a powerful combination.

Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
Ty all for the good advises. Btw, I'm not trying to improve my army list.
I don't like at all small sizes units, exept for Knights..
I like something bigger, like minotaurs, ogres and similar
This is my old army list:
1 Doom Bull
2 Zannagor's Chariots
1 Spawn of Chaos
As u can see there are only big units ^_^ (exept for the dogs, but i like them)
I don't like at all this new army list no more ogres or trolls and the worst of all, no more Shaggoth T_T
you can still take ogres since they are dogs of war, they jsut take up a rare slot, and arent as good as minotaurs
You can at least take razorgor herds if you want some variety in models among your minotaurs. While the GW razorgors look godawful, the units are pretty good ruleswise.
