Been throwing around some ideas about a Nurgle themed army for the new book - reading alot of the rumor threads I think I've got somewhat of a good handle on the points costs. Only thing I'm really missing is the Hero/Lords section and associated chaos gifts (since they'll be more like VC, its hard to estimate based off of what they could be). As well, basing command choices & costs off of the double basic cost for champion, half for standard & musician, etc. Anyways - basic idea I'm running will be:
Lvl 4 Exalted Sorcerer of Nurgle
Lvl 2 Sorcerer of Nurgle
Lvl 2 Sorcerer of Nurgle
Exalted Champion of Nurgle on Daemonic Mount
(14) Warriors of Chaos w/shield w/MON - 285 pts
(14) Warriors of Choas w/shield w/MON - 285 pts
(20) Mauraders w/light armor/shield - 140 pts
(14) Chosen w/GW w/MON - 350 pts
(2) Chariots - 240 pts
(5) Knights - 240 pts
Leaves me with about 710 pts to use for characters - I think the first character to go if I had to cut the points would be the Champion of Nurgle. Could always swap a few things around here and there - just hard with the units costing so much!
The Lore of Nurgle just seems so incredible with the new Lore - its hard to resist!
cool but were is the warshrine?
I'm thinking about the warshrine - wish they would be coming out with a model for it. Can always convert one up out of a chariot or something.
I don't know - will have to see the rules for it. If it's main benefit is giving a friendly unit a roll on the table, it seems too random for my tastes.
i know what you mean but its only 10pts more than a charriot and i have read the rules...
there pretty sick challange anybody in a WoC army at your peril.
also i like the idea of 2+ save on my chaos warriors while they advance...
If you mean a Sorcerer Lord, your lord is 290 points including the level 4 and the mark.
Your level 2 sorcerers are 140 a piece.
Your exalted hero is 180 points including the daemonic mount.
You really need some hounds or marauder horsemen in here to cover for your lack of movement.
It's Adventure Time!
2010 'Ardboyz Champion
looks good. i would say throw in some some speed in the form of maruader horsemen. Maby grab some ogres/trolls/dragon ogres and throw out 1-2 blocks of maruaders for something to throw away if you need to.
What about the old anvil and hammer strategy?
Where the anvils are 25 marauders of nurgle with armor and shield and command
and the hammers are 12 warriors (of khorne if you like overkill and can manage frenzy) with halberds
Also, i can't find any reason to field chosen warriors with the new rules.
3 points more than a warrior to have a random boost...meh...
I'd prefer 2 units of knights
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
