Just started collecting my first WHFB army - a mortal chaos army - and could use some constructive feedback on my initially planned army composition. My criteria for the army are as follows:
- Variation in unit types.
- Effectivity, especially against Bretonnians and DE, as I'll be playing in a rather competitive environment.
- On top of this I also have a couple of favorite miniatures I just have to include for the sake of army feel.
Exalted champion: GW + barded chaos steed = 118
(goes w. knights)
4 Knights: w. standard =
5 mounted deamonettes =
2 x 5 warhounds =
16 marauders: w. shields + full command =
Beast herd (12 gor + 8 ungor): Full command = 151
3 minotauers: GW =
900 pts. The rest for customization and magic equipment. (suggestions are welcome!)
My humble ideas on the tactics:
The warhounds will screen and support the knights and infantry. The beast herd will both also screen the infantry and function as a fighting unit on their own (a very versatile kind of unit I expect). The marauders and minotaurs are the "bulk" units, and the latter can smash the enemy knights to bits (the models are cool too).
The deamonettes are not that well integrated into the army but will be used as a kind of wild card. Marauder horsemen would probably be better value-for-points, but I like the look of the deamonette models and the speed. I also hope they will be a worthy substitute to the chaos flyers in their ability to take out enemy warmachines (as I hate all of the flyer models and would very much like to do without them but on the other hand fear the RBT).
Critique and suggestions are very welcome, as I'm pretty unsure of how this army composition will work;
