    Comments in blue mate.

    Sorc Lord. Level 4. MoT. Talisman of Preservation. Blood of Tzeentch: 365pts
    Looks good to me. Consider grabbing the Charmed shield too. The extra armour save is here nor there but the 2+ 'ignore first hit' is awesome and works for miscasts, canon balls and all such nastiness.
    Also, where is he going? If you fancy being sneaky, give him the screeching sword which gives him fear. Then give him Favour. when the shrine casts his gaze on the Warrior unit you can re-roll pretty much any result bar a 12 and a 4!


    Exalted. MoT. BSB. Shield. Favour of the Gods. Bronze Armour. Talisman of Endurance: 200pts
    With a Shield and the MoT he already gets a 5+ Ward in combat. Is Endurance worth it for just +1 Ward?

    35 Marauders. MoT. LA. Shields. Full Command: 250pts (BSB Here 6x6)
    24 Warriors. MoT. Shields. Full Command: 474pts (lord here 5x5)
    Give these boys the Blasted Standard. Against Khorne it's useless as they have no shooting but against Skaven it makes them insane. I'd also drop this unit in size. It really doesn;t need to be this big. 20 MAX if you want to go with a frontange of 5.

    5 Warhounds: 30pts
    5 Warhounds: 30pts
    Warshrine. MoT: 150pts
    Looks good. If you need the points for something else consider dropping the Mark off the Shrine. T6 and a 4+ Ward should keep him going nicely enough.

    The maximum I can spend on him at this level is 375. Charmed Shield and Favour would take him to that limit so I wouldnt be able to give him the screeching sword (I dont actually have the points value for that as my BRB is at home) unless I drop Blood of Tzeentch or possibly make him level 3.

    Exalted. MoT. BSB. Shield. Favour of the Gods. Bronze Armour. Talisman of Endurance: 200pts

    I see your point, i was just going for maximum survivability. Also, you dont get a parry save against monsters iirc so the parry wont be any use against the Daemon Prince. Would I not be better just dropping the shield and taking the 4++? Would the shield not drop that to 3++ in combat anyway?

    35 Marauders. MoT. LA. Shields. Full Command: 250pts (BSB Here 6x6)

    24 Warriors. MoT. Shields. Full Command: 474pts (lord here 5x5)

    The skaven guy cant make it so it WILL be Khorne DoC. Any suggestions on the unit against them or just drop to 20?

    5 Warhounds: 30pts

    Again, I see your point, this shrine took out a Khorne DP last week thanks to the 3++ save

    I'd then give my warriors the rapturous standard. I'd also keep the 4+ ward on your BSB. He needs to stay alive, that +1 ward save could mean everything. I like his setup to be honest. I've been toying with spellshield and 4+ ward just to give my knights some MR, but in your case the immunity to KB is going to be epically good.

    Tzeentch lore seems underwhelming against khorne demons. I know its like a broken record, but shadow is amazing against them. Even if you only ever drop his units by -1 WS, that's game breaking. Since most of your guys and most of his guys are ws4/5. letters hitting marauders on 4s, warriors hitting letters on 3s, ect. ect.

    ok, how is this:

    Sorc Lord. Level 4. Talisman of Preservation. Blood of Tzeentch, Shrieking Blade, Dragonhelm, Favour of the Gods. Uses Shadow Lore: 370pts
    Exalted. MoT. BSB. Shield. Bronze Armour. Talisman of Endurance: 195pts
    39 Marauders. MoT. LA. Shields. Full Command: 274pts (BSB Here)
    24 Warriors. MoT. Shields, Std of Discipline, Full Command: 449pts (lord here 5x5)
    5 Warhounds: 30pts
    5 Warhounds: 30pts
    Warshrine. MoT: 150pts

    Total 1498pts

    The worry I have is that with Favour on the Lord, I have no way of giving immunity to fear to my Marauders housing the BSB which could see them disspate quickly, hence i've increased their numbers.

    Your total points is 1500. I thought you can only have a lord once the army is 2000 points.
