Welcome to Librarium Online!
our store has started up the book of grudges staff challenges again, and my fellow monkies think i may have gone a bit too far with the utter jerkiness of a 1000pts nurgle list... wondering what you all think of this;
exalted champion w/mark of nurgle, chaos armour, filth mace, favour of the gods, barded chaos steed
Lv2 sorcerer w/mark of nurgle, power familiar, sword of battle, chaos armour.
Lv1 sorcerer w/mark of slaanesh, rod of torment, chaos armour.
10 chas warriors w/hand weapon + shield. champ + standard w/festering shroud.
5 knights w/mark of nurgle.
the only reason my game was close is because i rolled nothing but 1's with the chaos knights... they killed... NOTHING!!! they bounced off of high elven archers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i went up against;
Lv2 mage w/annulian crystal
Lv2 mage w/jewel of the dusk
2x bolt throwers
15x sword masters w/FC & banner of arcane protection.
i wiped him out to the last elf... but i only had 9 chaos warriors left thanks to my amazing ability to fail 5 out of 5 armour saves on the useless knights!
so, did i go too far with this list?! any way to be an even bigger jerk?!!
It depends, how useful is the Slaanesh sorcerer to you?
I would consider dropping him for some warhound units and maybe to beef up the marauders a bit (flails or something, maybe a Mark of Slaanesh).
I just think that at 1k, a couple warhound units are excellent for capturing quarters and if a warhound unit does manage to capture a quarter, it just tripled its own points. They are also excellent at flank attacks in conjunction with knights, ensuring that even if the knights do badly you still have a decent chance of winning combat.
As a side note, I can't believe that people thought your list was more jerky than that high elf monstrocity! 2 bolt throwers, a large unit of swordmasters, and effectively 5 levels of magic at 1k!

"I am the architect of fate!"
Thats not too bad at all. Makes me feel guilty for using 2 units of knights.
