Welcome to Librarium Online!
To start with I'm a verteran High Elves player so I know the game well, just not the WoC army! So if anyone has any general tips or hints please feel free to post!
Basically I'm looking for an all round good list to play against any army.
Lord on Daemonic Mount: Armour of Morrslieb, Crown of Everlasting Conquerer, Shield
The Troll King Throgg: (Goes with Trolls)
Chaos Sorcerer of Tzeentch: MoT, Level 2 upgrade, Dispel Scroll, Book of Secrets, Disc of Tzeentch, (Which lore of magic should I take?
Chaos Warriors x12: Musician, Standard Bearer, Shield
Marauders x20: Musician, Standard Bearer, Shield
Knights x5: Standard Bearer (goes with Lord)
Knights x5: Standard Bearer
Hellcannon of Chaos
Dragon Ogre Shaggoth
Thats it so far.. it comes out to 2217 pts. I feel as though Chaos Marauder Horsemen would help give me a few tactical advantages and I know I'm low on magic. Also, I'm not sure if I should ditch the Marauders and try to fit in another unit of Warriors? Anyway, this is why I'm posting here... Criticize away!
Marauder Horsemen are massively valuable to the Chaos cause, as are Warhounds - many people overlooked them in the first little while of the new book, but we've very quickly come to realise how valuable they are.
You are low on magic, and also on magic defense. Remember you don't have your High Elf bonuses now - one solitary caster with one solitary Dispel Scroll won't last you too long. Aim to get more magic defense in your list.
Hope this helps!
Thanks a ton! I love the feedback. I'm glad to know that I @ least have a good start as you seem to have agreed with many of my choices so far. I'll get to work on adding some magic and magic resistance if I can fit it in.
Thanks again! And I'm looking for more tips, so comment away people!
trolls are only 40mm wide so you will only have a 160mm wide frontage. I can normally screen 3 Dragon ogres with 5 dogs. So you should be able to get 4 into combat when the enemy is 6 wide.
Ah I didn't notice you were planning to run him inside the trolls.
Personally I would run him in a unit of warriors behind the trolls, since I don't trust them to pass their stupidity.
Throgg gives his leadership value to the other trolls so they will less likely get nailed with the stupidity roll. However I do see your point in case they fail it, they'd be holding him back if he were in their unit. I'll run him with a group of warriors and see how that goes. Thanks for the advice! Keep it coming!
