Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys, I just started playing harcore since the new army came out and im trying to work on a competitive list for the hobby shop i play at since everyones got 8th edition fever. Ive got about 8-9 8th edition games at 2500 and i think this what my 3k army is going to look like. My only gripe is the lack of numbers but i think i should be fine. Any advice would be much obliged =)

looks good, might even try it myself...
did you made this list against a particular oppponent or just a take all-commers?
As far as I'm aware a BSB can not be given any magic weapons, from what I remember. I hope I'm wrong and something changed, but I looked through the FAQ and I couldn't find anything that changed it
I serve my master and do as he wants. He wants the badlands, thus they will be his.

I also like to bring a Dispel Scroll along, I would always field one of those. Consider switching spell fam to power fam and giving it to the Death Sorc, and giving the puppet to the sorc lord. That gives you 25 pts to monkey around with on the level 2, take a scroll. Drop the Roar on the lord unless you plan on taking shadow in the army (which you don't) because without lowering your opponent's toughness you'll notice pretty mediocre results with it. Stream is still pretty good.
The lists feels light, not enough punch running around. Maybe make some room for a few more knights and split them into two units. I've never liked marauders, but that's just a playstyle choice. Happy hunting, I hope this helps, tell us how it goes. Unless you played a gobbo/ogre/bret/TK opponent, then we really don't care, everyone decimates them, it's not their fault

later today, i'm actually gonna use this list, with the changes that Lord Borak (all the blue comments ) and BrockSamson (the ones on the sorcerors..)suggested though, dont know when i'll post my results but i wil!! i promise!
my opponent is my best friend and he plays DE, i'm not sure about what he's going to field since we're both still experimenting because of 8the ed.
i'm expecting 2 hydras, especially since he didnt use any last time to call my guess! other then that, an executioner horde perhaps.. lots of crossbowmen, altar of khaine, cold one knights... and a level 4 sorceror most probably as well...
anyway, wish me luck!!
Go smash the DE with your army, and let us know how loud he cries....
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
