So I just won my first tournament last weekend and Im very proud of myself ^^
Admitedly it was a very casual tournament with somewhat weak lists and there where a focus on painting, so the best-painted armies got a huge bonus to their score (my army was amongst the 6 best painted, so yeah - i got quite alot of points that way arround).
Nevertheless, a victory is a victory and there where far stronger lists than mine in the tournament and far better painted ones, but I reserve the right to be happy about my result.
And without further ado. Here it is:Chaos Lord, MoT, Disc, Shield,
Talisman of Preservance, Dragonhelm, Potion of Strength, Sword of Might, Stream of Corruption
Exhalted Hero, BSB, MoT, Disc,
Enhanced Shield, Talisman of Endurance, Biting Blade, Bloodcurdling Roar
Chaos Sorcerer, lvl 2, MoT,
Dispel Scroll, Charmed shield, Ironcurse Icon, Opal Amulet, Third Eye of Tzeentch
18x Warriors, MoT, Shield, Musician, Standard w/ Raptorous Standard
6x Marauder Horsemen, MoT, Spear, Javelin, Light Armour, Musician, Standard
1x Warshrine, MoT
1800 pts total
This was my main strategy:
My two discriders were doing all the dirty work, rearing the enemy at 2nd turn, disrupting his battlelines and taking out key-units or characters with a combined charge or where one charged and the other held his back/flank against any countercharges.
Hellcannon and Warriors were the clean up crew, getting in melee and taking out the center of the distrupted battleline.
Horsemen harrashed and distrupted the frontlines of the opponent battleline early in the game, or went arround a flank and backed up my discs.
Shrine, dogs and forsaken went screening and covering flanks.
I'll gladly answer questions or comments
how did you find the forsaken? iv been thinking about using them in a screen for my main force in a small 5 man unit like you did and would be interested to hear about how you found them
I basicly just used them as extremely expensive warhounds, the only boon being the Forsaken had Immune to Psychology (which saved them from having to make a panic test once during the whole tournament). Hell, I even charged them into 5 Skinks and guess what - they killed eachother outright. So yea, Im not a huge fan of Forsaken, but I belive Borak is, so if you want some tactical advicement on how to use Forsaken I suggest you send him a PM . Im sure he'll be happy to answer you (and it'll probably be a more productive answer than what I just gave you).
edit: no, wait. In one game I used them as my 1 wide/5 long Mage-bunker, which turned out to be great (because I could send my Warriors headlong into battle without fearing for my Sorcerer's safety), but then again. Standard Slaanesh Marauders could have done the same job way cheaper.

i knew that was comming lol, i hoped youd turn around and deliver some biblical story of them smacking down but i deep down knew it wasnt comming, shame. thanks anyway and grats on your win.
Congrats on the win dude. What armies did you face? How did you find just having 'one' block unit?
A shame on the Forsaken. To be honest though, what ever killed the Forsaken would have killed Horsemen as well and they were REALLY unlucky against those skinks lol. In one game I've had a unit of 5 take out 8 Squig hoppers, 5 Wolf riders and then slam into all his Warmachines eating 3 in 3 subsequent rounds. Some times they just get blasted and die but hey hum thats the same with everything else I suppose.
Gratz, Tash! Closest I've come is one where I won every battle, but so did another guy, and some shady paint judging (he had a handful of unpainted models but they gave him credit for being fully painted, a prerequesite for getting any decent paint score whatsoever, while mine actually WAS fully painted, and they gave me zero credit for even "a few minor conversions," when in fact I had seven out of 75 infantry models moderately to extensively converted) handed him the win...we got identical prizes (the top three did), but I was clearly victimized by the "good ole boy network."
Why the rapturous standard, and did it ever come into play?
Did 18 warriors seem like enough? I'm going to be running three melee blocks (as I do with all my armies, hehe) at 2k points, I can't imagine only one...and even my warrior block (the other two will be a GW marauder horde and a passel of trolls) is 23+BSB for 24.... I haven't hit the table yet, but while 18 seems to be the norm for a block of warriors in an infantry-heavy army, it seems dangerously short for being the only troop block...
Since the forsaken whiffed, what will you replace them with? And what about the marauder horsemen? They seem to have so many options added onto an already expensive-for-what-you-get model...I would like to suggest that the horsemen and forsaken together give you points for a moderately sized block of marauders on foot, especially without a mark.
