    Forward my Minions!!!

    This is just a bit of a laugh really. I have an idea of a Evil Genius/Villain sending waves upon waves of minions to their Deaths. Sounds a bit Skaven like but hey, Chaos can do it too. Anyway, this list is an 'add on' to my 2k Warriors list. I might use it as a Stand alone list though but the sorcerer would be a bit pointless If I did.


    List MKII

    Head Minion - 174pts
    Exalted, Tz, BoS, Spell Familiar, Dragon Helm, Halberd. (Shadow)
    I wont make this guy a BSB, as competitive as it would be, as he needs to act as a General in some cases.

    Fly my minions, Fly!! -684pts
    60 Marauders, MoK, Std, Musician, Great Weapons [342]
    60 Marauders, MoK, Std, Musician, Great Weapons [342]

    Minions Fate -110pts
    2 Spawn

    32pts left. Gifts on the Head Minion??? SoC is always fun. Conjoined can be useful too.





    Just for your Info it's going with this list. This list wont be changing though............. Maybe.

    Sorcerer Lord + Gear
    17 Chosen +Gear

    2x 18 Warriors +Gear

    2x 5 Forsaken
    4x Spawn
    Scylla.

    Hate to do this to you, and it may not matter... but you're 5 points over 1k :-P

    If you wanna paint that many models then go for it I say, maybe make them blood drenched or slightly insane looking to add some variety? Could even add in odd things from other races in places, like a random skaven or mutated lizardman etc. just to break it up a bit. I've seen a khorne army with crazy looking saurus as marauders and the marauder horsemen as saurus on cold ones and it was pretty awesome.

    Or you know, paint 160 of the same model :-P

    IF you're adding it to a 2k list that already has a sorcerer lord, then why the duplicate sorcerer? Drop the sorc and add some puppies maybe?

    I guess they wouldn't have the 'head minion' that way though.

    Watch out for gyrocopters or other fast units with breath weapons/shooting. They'll whittle you down. I'd suggest bumping two hordes up to 60 and using the remaining points to protect your flanks, maybe some spawn or warshrine.

    2 hordes of 70 in horde formation is 760.

    If you're trying to get competitive I'd get rid of the sorc, LD8 is NOT that great, bsb with bos, for 160, leaving you 80pts for... 1 spawn?

    Or if you're not that concerned you could use the 155pts for 3 spawns? (forgot the point cost). Or Maybe a warshrine and some dogs.

    LOL, yeah my 2k list is 5pts short so I can afford to be a wee bit over. If I ever choose to take this list on it's own I'll leave a Marauder in the case! Something cool to break up the mass of flesh would be cool. I'd like to do them all as mutants or random cultists. So I was thinking of a mix of Ungor and Flagellant bits

    He was just because, if I wanted to take this as a separate army, I could. If I did I'd rather have a sorcerer than an Exalted leading the army although I could do a BoS Exalted as some form of Tzeentch Wargor type thing. Exploding minions are always funny.

    I haven't face a Gyro since 5th Edition lol but you're right about breath weapons hurting. It'll hurt any T3 low save armies though so there's no real protection against that other than magic. More Spawn would be sweet and I can add in 2 more (Which I do have). I can only add in 2 more though, otherwise I'll be over the limit at 3k.



    Ok, New list in the first post.

    lol would love see your opponent face as you put down two units of 60 in 1000pt game.

    5 warhounds? it would leave you with 2 points left over
