I just purchased a daemon prince, DO Shaggoth, and a bunch of Trolls off Kijiji for dirt cheap, and I wanted to throw together a list I've wanted to make for ALONG time now! This list is purely for friendly games, as much as I would love to watch my opponents face as I put down all 30-ish of my models in a tournament game, it just wouldn't go far hah.
Anyways, here it is:
Daemon Prince 575pts
Tendrils of Tzeentch
Fury of the Blood God
-I bought this model, so I wanted to use it, I know DP's are pretty terrible, and you probably think I'm insane for spending 575 pts on this guy, but he's a casting machine! and he's pretty reliable with a 4+ ward(2+ against magical attacks)
The Troll King Throgg xxxpts
-I plan on converting one of the trolls I purchased using green stuff to make him unique from the others, Throgg is a beast, and he's going to be leading my army, and seeing as this is a monstery list and he's the king of the monstrous horde, I thought it was only fitting!
Chaos Trolls xxxpts
-This will be Throgg's unit, I figured 7 was nice and big, and I figure the less spread out the trolls, the fewer stupidity tests I have to take.
Chaos Trolls xxxpts
-Yay for awesome core units! thanks Throgg!
Chaos Warhounds xxpts
-Cause I mean why not? They're cheap, and can block charges/redirect if needed for 30 points they're worth it to me
Chaos Warhounds xxpts
-Same as before
Dragon Ogres 292pts
-Additional Hand Weapons
-Iv'e never tried dragon ogres, but I'm fairly confident they would perform better than regular ogres, so I'm giving these guys a shot. I'm going to use cold ones, and Minotaur bodies to make these guys, the models GW's sells are way to fugly!
-What's more monstrous than this?! I probably won't even use it for shooting in this list!
Dragon Ogre Shaggoth 275pts
-Additional Hand Weapon
-This model is amazing, and I'm really looking forward to painting it up nice. This guy's a monster(pun intended) and he's going to thrash the flank! I can't wait to field him
So that's the list! all 34 models! I guess 37 if you count the dwarves, but I'm not going to Obviously it lacks a lot, any suggestions to make it more fun/monstery? Let me know what you guys think of it! Thanks!

i like it! i think the demon princes just get really bad press. i know a guy who refuses to use anything else and hes gotten pretty scary with it. i mean... hes your sorc, but hes charging down characters and eating the heads off them at the same time. its beautiful. anyway i think id personally want to throw the 2 units of trolls together, buy a couple more (expensive i know...) and horde them. its alot of attacks, and if they draw fire, GOOD!
I think the Daemon Prince is a couple of things short of being amazing, sadly we probably won't end up seeing it until the new WoC codex is released, which won't be for another eternity so...As for the troll's, I could horde them together, It was my initial thought to do so, but I figured It would be better to have another unit for field presence and deployment. Maybe I could deploy them like that and just join them together after
i put up a monster list that i liked in borak's "just for a giggle" list a couple days ago. i used galrauch instead of a demon prince, and i used chaos spawn too. suppose dropping the spawn and maybe a couple drogres might give up the points for a hellcannon, tho i wanted to keep my list free of humanoids for the "giggles".
either way i think both lists would be massively killy. i just love the whole idea of a huge monstrous force trampling the enemy underfoot/hoof/claw. i suppose i did get my warhammer start playing 40k tyranids, so that might have something to do with it. but hey! i think it would be just as fun to fight such an army! everyone loves slaying giant beasties!
Galrauch is a pretty sweet model, and he's not half bad, If I had the opportunity to buy him instead of the DP my list would have included him instead I was a little bit skeptical of using the hellcannon for the same reason, but maybe I'll just use some green stuff to mutate the dwarves a little God I have a lot of converting to do, a WoC generals work is never done.
I DO think you're insane to put 575 pts into that Daemon Prince, yes! But as you say it is for friendly games... but what kind of input are you looking for? In which way do you want to improve this list?
And oh, Throgg is not 185 pts, check the book again for a happy surprise. Though we are not supposed to post these costs straight out here... best edit it out of the text.
Warhounds are great here, you need some stuff that can just run around and cause a racket.
If anything, I would tweak the Daemon Prince. My suggested build that I tend to use is: Lvl 1, Tzeentch, third eye + some other gift you fancy. But then, in 8th ed you do need that lvl 4... but he's so HIDEOUSLY expensive!
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
Thanks for the feedback, what you say about the DP is what I'm looking for in tweaking the list. To be honest, I like the DP over the other two lord choices I could take in a list like this(the other two being Kholek, or Galrauch). But maybe I could cheapen him out a little bit. I want to keep with the theme, because it's something different, and it will be loads of fun to play it, and play against it, as from time to time my friends and I swap armies for fun.
But in all seriousness, even in a friendly game, I'd make you drop the 1pt that you're over. It's not a problem, you're already over-charging yourself for Throgg. Also, I'd consider ditching the DP in favor of more DOgres, they are really good, whereas you already have a large creature in the form of your Shaggoth. That's more akin to the similar list I run anyways. Besides, it fits the fluff, as no Shaggoth or Dragon Ogre would ever take orders from a Daemon, because they feel it would risk the last bits of their souls.
I wanted to keep a magic phase within my list. What are your thoughts of Galrauch instead of a DP? Since they are of the same kin, I could see the the Dogres taking orders from him.
Oh and Charlie Sheen is full of win, but I don't think he has what it takes to compete with this list
