In the current edition of core rules, you can no longer bear an enchanted shield with a magic suit of armour. Downer, I know, but that's how it's written.
The 12 warriors should cost 186, might want to double check that.
If I count it all up right, I think you're 9 over, even if you turn that enchanted shield into a regular one (same cost, oddly). Where you want to take out those points, is up to you, and that's if the people you play with will whine about you toeing the line a bit. Possibilities include: One warrior, two marauders, or 10 points of magic gear.
Well....thats kinda stupid about the shield thing...well....what do u guys think i should take, the armour, or the enchanted shield. and its just friendly games, some people are going 20 points over so i am quite safe xD
Id say.. go for the Armour of Damnation, better than Dargan i think. Then a normal shield, and the Sword of might would be better than Battle in think, generally.
Good to see you managed to get hold of the new list too
I'd agree with SoM over Battle, and Damnation over Dargan. Damnation is far more reliable unless you fight lots of Skaven and Goblins. Too bad you're stuck with a normal shield, hopefully the army book will have those costs down again, because hero equipment is way too costly right now. When a sword of might costs what a great weapon does, there's a problem.
Sadly SoM + AoD is the no brainer option that every single one us take for our heroes, the only really problems i see with this list is you not taking advantage of the fear rule of you chaos warriors. Personally i would drop one unit and just have one unit 20 with shields. I would then give that unit warbanner (so it has +6 combat res).
I would also get a nother unit of chaos hounds at the very least and try and upgrade the knights to chosen (its far more worth it now). Make sure you units have command were possible, it always helps in the long run.
