Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have an upcoming torney next week and I can't decide which list should I take.
I have won 2 champs in a row but lost the last one due to 3 turns of unbelievably bad rolls that ended up with Kholek and my lord on Jugg breaking and running off the table. But still my buddies are saying that I'm the one to be beaten and lists are being put together aiming defeating me - So I could really use some help.
the first champ I won using a DP + 2 Sorcs list, Tz and Nurgle magic, Hellcannon and Giant on the flanks and warriors and knights in the middle.
Second list was Kholek + 2 sorcs + lord on jugger ridding with nurgle knights, hellcannon and some other trinkets
I then changed this list and took the sorcs out (made one of the a scroll caddy) and replaced it with Wulfriek and his marauders outflanking my adversaries. It worked reasonably fine but failed miserably against wood elves!!
I will most likely face: Cheesy Daemons, Cheesy Empire, Dwarf Gunline, 2-3 Orks and Goblins, one of them with 5 chukas, Tomb Kings, 2 other Wocs, 1 Lizzie with suppa duppa Slann, maybe a Vampire counts heavy magic.
I have being thinking off:
1 - Combat List
Exalted on Jugger, Runesword, Acid Ichor
Exalted BSB, Banner of Wrath
2x Horsemen Cruise Missile for the flanks
6 nurgle Knights, Rupturous Stand
2 - DP List
DP, TZ, Tendrils, Fury of the Blood God, Bloodcursing Roar
Sorc, Lv 2, TZ, Disk, Infernal Puppet, Talisman of Protection
Sorc, Lv2, Nurgle, Steed, Dispel, Book of Secrets
Exalted BSB, Jugger, Runesword, Ichor
Pretty Much same as above
3 - Terror bomb Dragon
Sorc Lord on Dragon, Slaneesh, Crown, Spell Familiar, Book of Secrets, Diabolic Splendour
Sorc, Lv2, Tz, Disk, Enchanted Shield, Power Familiar
Sorc, Lv2, Nurgle, Steed, 2x Dispel
Exalted BSB, Doom Totem
2 x Horsemen Cruise Missile
10 marauders (meat Shield for BS
5 Nurgle Knights
4 - Same as Above replacing the BSB for a Slaneesh Chariot!!
That's it guys
comments and critics appreciated
I would welcome ANY suggestion even if it includes changing completely the strategy. People will be waiting either dragon or Kholek so maybe a surprise can cause some damage!!

I think the first list might do the best for you, mostly because I think kholek will be clutch for you. Greater demons, Giants, Steam tanks, Stegadons, he can pulverize all of them. I might be worried about him vs empire or dwarfs though, if you can charge turn 2 you might be ok. Theyre really all good lists though, maybe pick whatever one is painted best or you think you won't get hit hard with comp score, not sure how this tournament is set up in those areas.
about the only comment i have for one of your lists is on list number 2, idk what it is about me and runesword, but we just don't get along anymore, tend to go wit sword of striking/enchanted shield/favour of the gods fer his gearset, he hits a bloodthirster on 3's, granted he's wounding on 5's, but with 6 attacks, he's bound to make him at least take one saving throw, or you could drop the enchanted shield fer the anti-killing blow armour if that is a concern for you as well. Other than that, list 2 looks distinctly familiar to the one i won with a few weeks ago Almost turn one gateway on the bloodthirster wit muh dp, but alas, his mr2 got to roll boxcars for him, so i had wait until turn three to kill him off. About the only other thought i could give you should you desire to change your gameplay up a little bit is using valkia as your lord with 2 warshrines, she doesn't pack the punch that kholek does, but you won't find many units running off the table with her around, also carries the same armour save and is not a large target, so if you're worried about getting shot to pieces by dwarves/empire, go fer it!
I wonder if there will be cake.....
thanks for the comments and suggestions guys.
The tourney is tomorrow, and I´m excited about it
Ayliffe, what would you suggest me replacing the BSB for? I can either add the chariot and 6 man the marauders and knights or add something else!!
And what do you think of fitting tha Doom Totem at the cavalry unit?
The doom totem is a waste of points in a list like this, imo. Just take the chariot, it adds another threat for your opponent to deal with.

I'd have to say list 2 or 4. Magic is what dominates these tournies, and i especially like the list 2 sorc setup. Combined with the DP your list is more versitle, and more fun to boot! All the lists I run are fun but competitive. I'm usually empire and I run NO steam tanks in my list because theyre pure cheese, and I have still won some tournies. But other than that, good luck and have fun!
