Hi everyone, this is my first post here and I hope I have all the rules for army list postings correct. Here's the 1500pt army list I was considering, input appreciated
Lord- Sorcerer Lord - Level 3Mark of TzeentchHero- Exalted Hero
Disc of Tzeentch
Golden Eye of Tzeentch
= 305Mark of KhorneCore -15 Chaos Warriors w/ Std, Mus, Halberds, Shields = 273
Talisman of Preservation
Eye of the Gods
= 22915 Chaos Warriors w/ Std, Mus, Shields = 258Special - 5 Chaos Knights = 200
5 Warhounds = 30
Rare - Hellcannon = 205 (never used one before but I hear good things)
I think I would make the Khorne hero the general since the sorcerer on disc will likely be all over the board. At this point level I think Id prefer to have a large unit of marauders instead of the second warriors unit but I do not have the models so I'm a bit limited on what I can do. I know a lot of people may suggest that I drop the Juggernaut and put him on a chaos steed with the knights but I'm a fan of the model and I think he can handle himself. I'm not looking for the army to be a powerhouse, just for friendly games and I think the lone characters will be fun. The armies I'll generally be facing are dwarfs, lizardmen, dark elves and empire.
At 2000 points I am considering the following upgrades:
Please tell me what you think, Thanks
- Raise sorcerer to level 4
- Add 3 warriors and the mark of khorne to unit w/ halberds
- Add 3 warriors and the mark of tzeentch to other warrior unit
- Add mark of khorne to chaos knights
- Add another unit of 5 Warhounds (thinking they could screen the knights)
- Add 3 Plague Ogres (Ogres w/ Mark of Nurgle, chaos armor & great weapons)
- Add 1 chaos spawn of khorne (or slaanesh?)
That looks like a very solid list. If you have the points I'd go for the lvl4 upgrade +1 to casting and a 4th spell will come in useful. And I've been using MoK on my knights and it makes a big difference. turn 10 attacks into 15 attacks. The benefit vs. cost is too good to pass up - increasing attacks by 33% for <10% cost increase.
yeah I wish I could squeeze those in at 1500 but I'm not sure how. They're both definite upgrades in the 2000 though! Debating too if I'd be better off dropping the Plague Ogres and a couple of the other upgrades to add a second unit of knights but I wouldn't have a whole lot of variety on the battlefield.
You can do lots with 500 points.
Increase the level of your sorcerer lord and give him third eye of tzeentch, now he's casting your spells and your opponents spells with a +5 bonus thanks to MoT.
From there you could grab a cheap horde of marauders and increase the size of your warrior units.
More warhounds are always good as well.
I like the idea of the third eye, will definitely consider it. I would like to include marauders too, but I sold all mine off a long time ago and I'm reluctant to buy more because I'm holding out for the slim chance they will get new models. I doubt it though, considering how many other models need replacing!
