i was trying to complete my army calculations again and see how it might work, but i keep going back to the drawing bored when it comes to my Lord. Heres what i have so far.
Collar of Khorne
he i beleive comes to 155
this is a lord that i will use in my 1500 and 2000 pnt battles
any comments or problems w/ the lord would be greatly appreciated, i'm not sure if i can take d. strength and d. resiliance because he is statured so he already gets the +1 to str and tghness *shrug*
hmmm...That's a pretty mean guy, mine came to about 157. I had the same problem with going back and forth to tweek my lord to what I wanted, or thought I wanted, then I'd think of something else. But you may want to take off the venom. The venom does give him a ranged attack, but for 20 points, you can give him Demonic Flight which will get him into cc REALLY quick, something like 12 to 18 charge range, and you don't have to worry about terrain. I just took a funky little MC cc weapon and a regular cc weapon since he would ignore armor saves all together, plus I get to reroll any misses. Although the Axe is a great weapon to have for a Demonic Prince since you can reroll any 6s. To make him really Khorny (hehe), another cc weapon will do just fine. Plus, I don't think he benefits from Demonic Toughness or Strength, but I would call the guys at GW for that one. The number is 1-800-394-GAME. If you already knew that, just thought I throw that in for convenience. All-inall, he's nasty. I like him.
yea originally i wanted to use an lt w/ dual lightning claws (which i still might) then i was gonna go w/ the zerker glaive, but i think that w/ the no armor save and always wounding on a 4+ it didn't seem that bad.
i was thinking about giving him flight however after reading a lot of posts about khornite lords i have found that it is relativly suggested that you do not give him flight, because w/ the TOBB if he gets gripped by blood frenzy its better off *shrug* unless i'm miss understanding something. I'll have to give GW a call.
Btw another question
can a Chaos Scorcerer LT use Dual Lightning claws HAH, i mean give him d. flight, dual lightning claws, maybe mark of tzeench and give him a retinue of other sorceres might be fun to jump around the board w/ that lord lurking in the distance w/ his claws dipped in poison *evil laugh*
The lord will benefit from having stature & strength & resilience, because stature rules never state that they give D. Strength or D. Resilience. So it is not purchasing the same thing twice or anything. I cannot see any reason why these abilities would not stack. However the D. Venom does seem like a waste of points unless it is there for fluff reasons, as a daemon prince that strong is generally not going to need much to cause a wound anyway. D. Venom also does not give you a ranged attack, you are confusing that with D. Fire.
Also if the liutenant has flight you know that the rest or his retinue would also have to have flight or he would have to move normally right? So that would be 20 odd points wasted really.

no i know that the dp will have no ranged attack, however i really liked the venom because it is like using a pair of cc weapons so basically cosmetic and fluff. if i stack str and resiliance on the dp, it will give him like 6 str and 6 toughness so i can understand the 4+ on the wound might be a bit over the edge, but for 5 points it seems almost worth it i could be wrong could anyone explain a few examples of how it is a waste and how it would work well.
any other weapons i might want to use instead of the venom.
any previous usage of this type of lord would be nice to hear how u liked him .. for fluffness i love the raking poisonous claws *shrug* but my friend says that he would wound everything and w/ no armor save .. i dunno sounds good but this is my first army

you could just model them as filth-caked claws if you liked the venom idea. But they'd be cheaper and about as effective.
