    2000/2000 points.

    what do you guys think? I promised myself I'd try out the giant one more time, as it can be awesome but my epic fail luck of him falling down three games in a row in the tournament recently didnt give me a good view of his capabilities. BSB will go into the unit of warriors per usual for their +5 combat res (3x banners, 2 ranks) will draw their fire away from the sorcerers with the spawns and the giant, probably will use a refused flank set-up and put the sorcerer in the unit of ogres.

    This looks like quite a fun ballanced army to play with. I do have some reservations about 1 or 2 things though. They are the following:

    1) I am not sure about mark of khorne on the marauder horsemen. If this unit is meant to flank harass it will be problematic, as they are likely to be pulled out of position by their frenzy. I would keep the unit, but drop the mark.

    2) I would like to see the marauder unit slightly smaller. 20 should be sufficient.

    3) With the spare points generated, I would get 2 units of 5 warhounds to take shooting damage while your army advances, blocking line of sight and aiding your troops survival.

    Just my thoughts

    I played this list tonight against a manfred Vampire counts army with two corpse carts and I have to say I was suprised how long I lasted, a couple unlucky missfires and me concentrating too much on the carts had some of my better units bogged down most of the game, I'll try it a few more times, possibly trading the two spawns for a warshrine, the unit of 14 warriors and the bsb tore through pretty much everything and only was finally destroyed in turn 6 by being outnumbered by a fear causing army. also the warhounds turned out to be a VERY bad decision as them fleeing from the fear causing units ended up with a good portion of my army taking panic checks. the ogres did poorly as well.

    Hey man great list- only thing i would also consider is adding javlins to the maurader horsemen- for 5 points you gain 5 st 3 attacks- w/ 360 los- i have never not had them earn thier points and in my cav list all my maurader horsemen have the javlins. also- you might want to try a hell canon or a shaggoth in exchange for the giant- while the giant is fun- i have found the hell cannon's moving and shooting plus cc dmg more than sufficent- or shaggoths are just plain distructive

    Yeah I'm not very impressed with the giant ( mostly due to horrible luck on my part )

    but honestly I'm not interested in purchasing a hellcannon or a shaggoth at the moment, I have plenty of other unused models to pick from, like another unit of knights
