I have a 3k game againsta very good player in my local store
He will most likely bring beastmen which i hope he does as i know his list
He will have something like this
2/3 shamans and a great shaman
Doombull with a 1+ re-rollable save, ramhorn helm etc
BSB with beast banner
A giant unit of gors
lots of redirecting units
Giant unit of minotaurs (10+)
maybe a cygor or something
I was thinking of taking
Sorcerer lord with shaddows
Lvl 2 tzeentch with 3rd eye
BSB with 3+ ward
39 warrirors with khorne, halberds and banner of discipline
38 Marauders with khorne and flails
2 units of 5 marauder cav
1 unit of dogs
10 knights with nurgle and banner of rage
Shaggoth with great weapon
Warshrine with MoT
I want to throw my warriors up against his minotaurs and hope they win combat
Once combat I want to get my knights into combat with his Gors which will most likely contain his shamans
My marauders will stand behind my warriors which will contain my bsb and sorcerer lord
Hopefully if my warriors do fail in killing there minotaurs they will be able to take down what is left
I will probably be unable to kill his doombull so once his minotaurs are dead i will just have to hold up untill the game is over
The only thing that might be able to kill his doombull is my shaggoth but that cld take a while and is a very big if
The marauder cav and hounds are there as redirectors and to take care of his chariots
What do u guys think
Any tips wld be much apperciated
I like the inclusion of the Knights in this list, but I'm not sure Nurgle will do all that much for you - most Beastmen are at WS5. I wouldn't bring the Shaggoth to deal with the Cygor, to be honest with you - I think Trolls, normal Dragon Ogres, or even more Warriors can do it better (remember, he hits Warriors on 5's).
beware of parking the marauders behind your Warriors if you think they might lose the battle. If the warriors flee the Marauders have to take a panic test, if they're killed to the last man, same thing, and either way, the BSB will be gone. I suppose you could give your marauders Frenzy or Slaanesh, that might keep them around.
toss the banner of disciplin out the window and use Rapturous standard on the warriors instead. If you keep your bsb nearby they aint going anywhere.. EVER!
