Welcome to Librarium Online!
Recently ran the below list and was told it was a cheese list. To be fair I think it's fast and hard hitting but beatable. I really enjoyed painting it and putting it together and would hate to stop using it. Is it okay for friendly games? I based it off the idea of Thulsa Doom and his riders from the start if the first Conan movie. What do you think?
MoT(Because he could shape changer in the movie, it seemed fitting at the time, plus flickering fire is nice!)
Voice of Doom!(Bloodcurdling Roar)
10 Marauders with Flails and MoS (There is a guy at the start of the movie who is GW marauder on foot, it's uncanny).
5 Marauder horsemen with shields hand weapons and MoS
5 Chaos Knights (There were two big dudes on horses in Thulsas army and I converted the knights to look a bit like them).200 pts
Total of 496pts. Is their anything I can do to keep an overall cavalry theme with a sorcerer and still run a fun list? The main issue with my opponent seemed to be around the Chaos Knights. Should I drop them?
Any suggestions? First post so be kind!
What did your opponent expect???? You should have told him you could have run all knights and really ruined his day!! I actually think there ar tougher lists to make at 500 points that might include a solid block of warriors - the best infantry in the game. Marauder horsemen hit like a ton of bricks when outfitted with flails, but have no armour and die just about the same as squishy elves, so they are entirely beatable.
Next time, ask your opponent if he wants a little whine with his cheese, too....
Ok, first off Welcome to LO. Secondly an awesome theme for an army. I've done an army based on the fluff too, although mines based on conan
The 'big dudes' you mention are Thorgrim (guy with the big hammer) and Rexor (guy with Conans Fathers Sword)
I always pictured Doom as a Slaanesh boy myself, turning into a Serpent and all but hey if you think that fits then go right ahead. The list looks good. At the start of the film they had hounds attacking Conans Village along with the Marauders so maybe getting some of those in your list when you expand would be a cool idea.
Have you made the Banners into Dooms symbol? The snake with two heads symbol ith a sun and a Black Moon.
Cheers for that. I was thinking about the standard, it's pretty important for the overall theme so I'd need to give it the attention it deserves. Also I agree that slaanesh is more fitting to Mark Thulsa with, but I like the MOT because its useful for casting, so kind of going a little off the theme there, but, what the hey.
Yeah dogs are a must, they killed Conan's dad! I can see Marauders with a BSB in the middle of them and the banner with something like "DIE FOR DOOM!" on it. Also when i build a bigger army the goal is to have Thorgrim and Rexor as exalted champs lots of Marauders, and Thulsa riding a steed of Slaanesh, so i will eventually wind up marking him Slaanesh in the end.
Sounds like a good plan matey. Will you be going for a Maruader foot army, mounted? or a bit of both? To be honest though I'd wait for 8th edition to come out before making too many plans regarding Army lists. You don't know what's going to happen.
You could always do some Huge Snakes as Spawn/big things.
