Ok boys n Girls (and Spawn). I've pretty much completed painting my 2k list and that means I can paint some MORE TOYS!!........ However I'm at a loss as to what to add....... seriously. I've no idea. I was thinking 'maybe' a Disc rider as I've not really tried one out before. Anyway, this is my 2k list. I don't really need comments on it as it's all built and painted so wont really be changing. However....... what would you add to it??
It's for friendly gaming so it doesn't need to be utterly lethal. Just cool, gribbly and Tzeentchy.
Varka the Betrayer -380pts
Sorcerer Lord, Tz, Preservation, Rune Sword, Charmed Shield, 3rd Eye of Tzeentch
The Reapers -320pts
11 Chosen, Tz, Halberds, Shields, Std, Banner of Rage, Champ, FoTG,
The Crushers -326pts
18 Warriors, Tz, Std & Musician, Shields
The Flayers -326pts
18 Warriors, Tz, Std & Musician, Dual Weapons
The Blessed -180pts
2x 5 Forsaken
The Exalted -220pts
The Gibbering Twins -245pts
I've seen your BSB, although I don't know if it's from a different army. If you feel like tossing one of those in you can always paint some pretty cool free handed things on there. I could be crazy but I've always thought trolls had a tzeentch feel to them (mutant regeneration and the lord of change anyone?) Disc lords are definfitely fun and demons got a pretty sweet model that you could always "borrow" from them *evil grin*
Edit: I don't know what kind of access to bits you have, but the generic box of 10 chaos space marines comes with an icon bearer with different icons for each chaos god. I know from experience that the Tzeentch icon fits very well onto the top of a WoC banner and looks very good. It ends up being very tall and epic looking and would be a great BSB if you wanted to go that route

A disc exalted and a hellcannon would round it off pretty nicely I'd say - any extra points into Chosen.

7 trolls + Throgg would fit in points wise nicely + imo trolls have a lot of conversion/painting potential. I'm sure you could come up with an epic Throgg.
Or 3 trolls + Throgg could still do some dmg and leave with you points for a disk rider with golden eye of Tz + a dispell scroll or book of secrets and blood curdling roar.
Maybe a second giant to ensure your opponent is wholly distracted + some marauder horsemen. Turns 1 and 2 he'll be so focused your giants and fast cav.
Trolls are being saved for my Nurgle army Good suggestion though.
Yeah that 40k Tzeentch Std did appear on one of my regiments. Not sure where that went though as both my units just have Banners...... Hmm. I do have a BSB that's pictured on LO but that's for another army.
What about a horde of marauders? I can do them as some Thcar worshipping Beastman/Mutant tribe that live out in the wastelands. That gives me loads of opportunities so convert stuff. I can happily chuck another cheap sorcerer in there to be their 'Wargor' or shaman or something. Something like....
Grish'naks Herd - 295pts
Sorcerer, MoT 
30 Marauders, MoT, Great Weapons, Cmd 
Hesicasiel, Rider of the eight winds. -185pts
Exalted, MoT, Disc, Golden Eye, Dragon Helm, Shield, Biting Blade
That leaves me with 20pts for equipment on Sorcerer. Or 28pts if I ditched the unit Champ.
The marauder horde would be cool. It looks like a really fun list to play, personally I'd throw in some fast cav as it seems like a really fun unit to use. My last two opponents (WE and DE) had fast cav and annoyed me to no end always moving an inch out of my front arc. maybe take them in a unit of 10 to break steadfast.
I had a similar disk rider my last game and all he did was soak up arrows which worked well, but he really couldn't attack anything, he just got overrun with his 2+/6+ in CC. I'd recommend throwing him blood curdling roar or that breath weapon attack from gifts of the gods that way he's dodging arrows and still dishing out some dmg in the shooting phase.
Just curious - how do you plan to use 4 chaos spawn?
It's not greatly effective but it's fun and all the random movement puts off a few people.
Seeing as you already have 3 solid units of combat troops, you could go for a hellcannon and disc rider to fill it out seeing as your a bit light on characters, and lets face it hellcannons have multiple uses.
A converted hellcannon could be a fun and creative project, I think we had a thread on here about the forge world cannons and how they could be converted to resemble our cannon. With your creativity and awesome skills(don't deny you have them I've seen your stuff ) you could make it look awesome I'm sure.
As for being 'light on characters'. That might be because my General has a habit of turning his champions into Spawn.
How about a Exalted BSB of Tzeentch on a disc w/ ench. shield , biting blade and Golden Eye, a Warshrine of Tzeentch (since you have the chosen w/ FOTG), and one more rank of 6 chosen? With the remaining points you could add a champ to one of your warrior units or mark a spawn.
