Hi guys first post on librarium online and i was just wondering what people think of my army list.
Herald of Tzeentch
-Master of Sorcerey
Herald of Nurgle
-Level 1 Wizard
-Battle Standard Bearer
-Great Standard of Sundering
21x Plaguebearers (5x5)
-Icon of Eternal Virulence
-Icon Endless of War
Can somebody also maybe post a proper daemon powergaming armylist on this post. Like the chessiest, beardiest gayest armylist you can get for daemons.

This list looks fun to play but my thoughts were:
1. Don't you think that you have a big overkill on your plaguebearer unit?
You'll have a 4+, 5+ save and t4 and a reroll on to wound rolls for 25 models.
2. The great banner of Sundering might be a lot of magic defence since you already got 8DD.
3. If you'd drop a musician and 5 pb's from the pb units +the great banner of sundering you'd be able to buy 4 flamers for some extra flexibility.
The flamers can take down skirmishers and other cav. so Kairos won't have to waste his powers but can focus his spells on the nasty big stuff that advances.
4. Could you tell me how the list is to be used in your oppinion?
These are just suggestions and I'm not sure if these changes fit your playing style so look what you can do with it and good luck.
I'd say take a look at this forum and you'll find different kairos and BT powerlists .
The build always looks like this:
BT has some funny upgrades
2 Heralds of Tzeentch
8 million Horrors
Cheers for the advice what i plan for the army is that the pb unit is just a big anvil with horrors and bloodcrushers on either side supporting it with magic and combat whilst the wizard fly around killing the hard hitting units in their army
the banner in th pb unit is the one that give them 2 points of combat res for each poisoned hit that kills somebody in one game i played high elevs and ran down a 20 man unit of swordmasters a 20 man unit of white lions a unit of 20 spearmen and a unit of 15 spearmen three of the units contained his three wizards and his BSB and i lost one rank of pb's if i had lost any more then i probably would have lost some of the combats that why its such a big unit
I was thinking about swapping out the tzeentch units amd repcing them with either khorne and slaanesh and make the army just pure combat

I don't really like the synergy of the list. The PB tarpit needs hard-hitting flanking units to make use of their "stickiness" and you just have the one unit of crushers. Also, you have quite alot of points in magic but also many points allotted to getting stuck in CC. If you like the PB pit/GD combo I would go with a BT or KoS for a fast flanking CC beast. If you prefer the magic part of the list I would go with quick hit-n-run type units to spread out your opponent and keep them out of CC. Fiends, Screamers, Daemonettes, etc.. would be useful in that area. I think you will see more success if you try to have your units work well together rather than picking good individual units and sticking them together in a list.
NecroNid's got it. PBs without a hammer are just taking up space, Sundering Banner with 8 DD is unnecessary.

how about this then
-Armour of Khorne
Nurgle Herald as Before
Same as Before
5x Flesh Hounds
5x Flesh Hounds
Looks pretty good. I personally would swap out the Dark Insanity for a Spell Breaker. It is always nice to have in case of emergency. I would drop 5 PB to get an extra Flamer. Put them in two groups of 3. You can still have them fire at the same target if needed, but it adds flexibility. I am also getting 2026 as your points so that would get it down under 2000.
the second army list has only 5 furies not 7 so its 2002 point i dont want to make the pb unit smaller because i already have all the models and then it would become a waste of 12 pounds
Ah, I see. Looks fine then. Let us know how it works.
do you think that there is any way to make the army list cheesier.
The only must haves in the list are the nurgle herald an planaquin and the 21 plaguebearers because i already ahve the models everything else is optional. i proxied the army list twice against VC and HE and beat the HE but lost to the VC
