Welcome to Librarium Online!
Wow, its been a while since I posted around here. Maybe ill remember my login details this time. Anyway, firstly my justification, such as there is of it, for the Manticore. Which I know isnt the most sensible thing to balance a lord on in 2k, but I bought the model because I like it and havn't painted a monster yet so im going to use it for a bit in normal sized games for mostly a laugh. And not at all because the arm (and mount) fell off my other lord and I cant find them, definately not, honest.
Oh, usual oppenent will be Skaven or VC's, depending on what mood my mate is in. Probably Skaven though.
Chaos Lord - Manticore, Mark Of Tzeentch, Sword Of Strife, Crown Of Command - 495pts
Additional comments - yup, no ward save (I dont count a 6+, it kinda seems like a default when you play fairly heavily Tzeentch marked). Ive used him twice and both times hes actually got somewhere and not been smeared across the field by shooting. So thought id try a bit of a unit slaughterer to slam into a big horde alongside one of the Warrior units. Hence the stubborn hat, dont want him legging it from a unit of clanrats or something undignified.

So, any feedback short of "Are you dribblingly insane? dont use the manticore!"?
After all, dribbling insanity is a gift from the gods around here.
