Thanks for all the good advice on knights, I think you are probably right they need a bit more protection 1+ only goes so far.
Yeah level 4 is usually shadow, I reserve fire for little shooty level 1s smashing fireballs all over the shop, but agree with Festus + shadow being an awesome combo, just really love a huge marauder block arriving from back/side and just chewing through the chaff at the back of the board.
Horsemen I always find totally useless in small units, yeah they bait ok but they're kinda expensive for that, ditto warmachines, I really only use them now for steadfast denial. Some dogs might be useful I guess, but don't fancy buying anymore models, will prob split them up and keep them cheap(maybe only have 2 groups of 5).
Good call on favour, ta I forgot
Well, one day a gaming house would indeed be cool. Kitchen full of alcohol and bacon and gaming tables everywhere. Perhaps a room for each system? hmmm, I like it. Alas, probably only get one room.......... Until the gods curse me with Spawn (children). Not sure one room will be big enough to be honest. Over 20,000pts in just 40k takes up a lot of space...
The day I'm banished to a shed at the end of the garden........... so, erm, what's the new list look like?
Just been doing a similar all out thing to play a 5000 point game and the conservative estimate on mine is 6500 which annoys me as I'll have to write a proper list lol. Anyway as for your list the knights will need the blasted standard at that points level as even bowfire can be numerous enough to down quite a few. Added to that more warmachines will see some hurt coming their way. Potentially blasted standard and khorne or even nurgle would work giving you the best of both worlds.
Characters really need ward saves. I tend to concentrate on these before going to just armour upgrades as the challenge rule means you are likely to be facing opponents with high strength values. I like the marauder horsemen in a big block. Perhaps throwing axes could be added as they would be able to get rid of small skirmishing units without the need to charge them.
Marauders need mok and great weapons when taken as part of a balanced list. I am contemplating a horde with tzeentch and shields though, it's cheaper and better than empire swordsmen who always seem to do ok. Means you can use okkams on them and they become very annoying or even warshrine buffs getting a 12 would be awesome. Anyway yes mok greatweapons would probs be your best bet.
Hope that helps
I saw all my sports stuff, gaming stuff and weight lifting stuff replaced with Barbie, stuffed animals, princess dresses, my little ponies and pink rugs. I fear no chaos god for I have a wife and two daughters. I know pain sir, I know pain ...Until the gods curse me with Spawn (children).
"Daddy, you're playing with the bad guys again? I don't like them! Put them away and come play Princess Memory!" That's an actual quote from this Saturday morning when I took ten minutes to put together a spawn.
I will drink your milk shake! I will drink it up!
I just bought my wife a mini-van, the gods of Chaos have nothing on reality.
