Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all, i've been a watcher but never a poster for a good long while now; I've been playing WoC since before the new book and haven't had a whole heap of games of 8th ed yet. Here's my 2500 list; let me know what you think (critisicm is appreciated!)
Tz Lord w/ Armour of Damnation, Tally of Pres, Potion of Foolhardiness, GW, Word of Agony  --> tz warriors
Sorc w/ Ruby ring of ruin, scroll, third eye  --> wherever
Tz BSB w/ Banner of Rage, Shield, Stream of Corruption  --> marauders
23 Tz Warriors w/ shields, blasted standard, muso 
12 Khorne Warriors w/ Halberds 
40 Khorne Marauders w/ GWs, Muso, Standard 
5 Hounds [xxx]
6 Khorne Marauder Horsemen w/ Flails 
12 Tz Chosen w/ muso, FotG, Shields 
And that's that! Let me know what you think
but of course, 'tis genius, no?This is............... exactly the same build I use. Pretty much unkillable whilst deadly.that's the trouble, its a magic heavy list or what we have.Looks good. Leavng yourself a little unprotected in the Magic front but hey hum., so do I.noted, and changing with a facepalmNot really much point grabbing a shield if you've got Frenzy.because they aren't khorne, i'm a twat hahaha. i think my mind just considered them khorne since he frenzies them. it's not even in the points!!Plus, if he's going into the Marauders, why give them this banner if they already have the Mark of Khorne???I like your thoughts. i still don't like him in the marauder unit, but i haven't EVER run them. i see their potential now in 8th ed however.I would ditch the Magic banner and grab some gear to keep him alive. Halberd, Endurance and Tzeentch is pretty cheap whilst still killy.mmmm, see, i'm stuck in the old mindset of not putting standards in to deny points. is it really worth it in a unit that will get shot to pieces???12 Khorne Warriors w/ Halberds 
Cheap, killy. Consider grabbing them a standard. It'll help in the Blood and Glory missionyeah, that was my standard build in 7th ed, wasn't sure how well it would go nowadays.I prefer Slaanesh on these boys ---> horsemen
Oh, i also agree about the chosen. i'm hesitant to run them at all, considering the points cost... tempted to drop them for some ogres (chaos armour, GWs, maybe a mark???) THOUGH i'm worried about the lack of block units. i play against quite a few horde armies, led by good players.
thanks for your comments, m'lord.
Aye it is a genius build. He's never actually died. He's ground Archaon to a standstill, killed Grimgor and even a Greater Daemon in his time. He's even weatherd the storm of 10 str 10 attacks from an Orc Warboss andthen killed him in return.
Lol no worries about the Marauders. Is there even much point putting the exalted In the marauders? It's not like they need the help anyway. They're chucking out 18 str 5 attacks (if they're frenzied) anyway. That should mush most people. If they loose they loose but they've probably put a huge dent in the enemy unit.
If you're worried about them don't be. They're there to be used for taking down units that are too dangerous for Warriors. IE taking down units of Sword Masters or such. Units that will cream a small unit of Warriors but will get taken down by a unit of 30 Frenzied Marauders (they'll kill 15 but the other 15 will cream them in return)
Ogres would be a good replacement for the Chosen. They'd add some speed to your list. You could do one big unit of Great weapon Khorne Ogres for unit mashing or do 2 small units of 3 to go hunt Warmachines or Wizards hiding in archer units. Basically to take on the things that are to tough for horsemen to take on but are too pethetic to send Warriors after. (I use Forsaken for this but Ogres are a good option)
Or you could grab some more horsemen, Dogs and another chariot for all those points.
grrr double post

Ah the Forsaken. Well, I know everyone, or at least most people, hate them with a passion. Thats pretty much the only reason I gave them a go.
Now I quite like them. I use them to support Marauder horsemen in units of 5 or 6. They're fast, not as fast as Horsemen but the T4 and 5+ Save can weather a storm of fire and still pull through mostly unscathed. Horsemen can take on Warmachines and the like but can't do naff all against archers (with wizards hiding in), they'd be shot down by the stand and shoot reaction, this is where the Forsaken come in. They can charge through the fire and still kick out shed loads of str4 attacks.
6 Forsaken is kicking out 12-24 attacks at WS4 and str4. That's not bad for a small flanking unit.
Nice to have someone who wont say a unit is shit even though they haven't used it though.
Tz Lord w/ Armour of Damnation, Tally of Pres, Potion of Foolhardiness, GW, Word of Agony 
Sorc w/ Ruby ring of ruin, scroll, third eye 
Tz BSB w/ Halberd, Tally of Endurance, Stream of Corruption 
18 Tz Warriors w/ shields, blasted standard, muso 
18 Nurgle Warriors w/ Halberds, Standard - Banner of Rage, muso 
12 Khorne Warriors w/ Halberds, Standard - Banner of Eternal Flame 
39 Khorne Marauders w/ GWs, Muso, Standard 
6 Slaaneshi Marauder Horsemen w/ Flails 
-----> I'm far more satisfied with this list; i like having more blocks, seems more solid. what you think?
EDIT: May i also add that i'd love to have put DOs in but i hate the models and don't have time for such a huge conversion job...

I like it. Flaming Khorne Halberd weilding Warriors for the win!!! I'm sure there's someone else around here than can shed some other useful insights into the list but I'm done.
Totally with you on the Dragon Ogre issue. The back ground is awesome, the rules are awesome but the models are toilet. Why oh Why wont GW release new models of them??? I think they're one of GWs longest running models, only beaten by Snotlings in terms of age.
And on that note, its the same with Ogres AND our Trolls. There ain't nothing comical about chaos. I assumed we would've got a second wave [and no, i don't call getting the DP a second wave, they did that purely for DoC]
