Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am thinking of trying out masque +despair and am wondering what a very good setup is... I am thinking (for 2k) KOSL4, tzeentch herald, masque at a minimum. Then I am thinking filling it up with flamers, screamers and furies (in addition to 3 MSUs). Basically the flamers and screamers will try to inflict as much damage as possible to force panic checks for enemies to flee. If they do flee the screamer with its 20 charge can further scare them off. Do people put an extra tzeentch herald in there for more magic so the Keeper's magic can go off more smoothly or just use the points for more models?
Here's what i got...
KOS L4 w/ allure,siren,soul, torment blade
tzeentch herald fly,vortex bsb despair
10 x 2 horrors
fill rest ~650 w/
herald tzeentch w/ 3 screamers, 5 furies, rest flamers
OR 6 screamers, 5 furies rest flamers?
the magic pool w/ 2nd herald tzeentch will be ~13-14(with Power vortexes) while without him will be 11. The trade off is of course ~140 points for more flamers/screamers but magic weakened a bit... suggestions?
If you really want terror tactics a MoS Tzeentch herald with shadow or death magic is worth a go. You can bump your screamers/furies up to cause terror to really put pressure on their ld and dispel dice.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
will just "causing panic" be enough against most armies? i know i probably need to duke it out against VC and Daemons since they dont panic... is 3 chars too little or 4 is best to get magic through?
id say just add the banner and the masque, then concentrate either on a run and hide army that can blast the begeeses outa stuff, or a punchy little force, this way you dont have to worry about armys not affected by fear because the lack of leadership will still make your kos one hell of an asshole, slicing shards of slaneesh anyone?, how about temptator on their vampire lord, while cutting down every other charecter with the torment blade?, how about instability tests on leadership 2 cause you cant wound the only thing you can get into combat with.
im noy sayin the army would be perfect, but it would be fun, and its been a ball of string ive been kicking about for a while now.
hope this helps.
