what do you think?
The individual units are all good, but they don't add up to a coherent strategy in my mind. Since you have the banner of the gods, I'd expect about 3 basic infantry units to 'catch' your foes, and 1-2 nasty flanking units to smash them once caught. It looks like you have a bunch of cool stuff, all of which is individually nasty, but I'm not sure how you intend for the army to work.
If I was trying to fight you, I'd pick off the fast things with my own fast things or shooting, and then march-block the infantry and avoid them altogether. However, if my army could not do that, you'd probably win.
BSB's can't have shields. if you want more armor, both the BSB and the Lord could be mounted, as mounted characters can't be targeted in infantry units anymore. A mounted lord with your warriors will give them US 20, and 3 ranks!
A chariot of khorne is just asking something to lure it into the woods and kill itself.
The beast herd is small enough to be useless, except as a screen/flanking unit. It will excel at those roles.
You might want to consider keeping your lord and BSB close together, to keep things from challenging your BSB after they kill the marauder chmp. Or letting the BSB drop out of his unit before combat.
You are a little weak against shooting, some furies or mounted horsemen or something would be a help against war machines.
Arena of Death Champion: Nexim of the Guldskullz Tribe. Fear my wrath!
ill change the chariot, as i get your point..
the beastherd is, as you say, only for flanking/screening..
im thinking about dropping the banner for the bsb and then just make a fighter instead.. im wandering an exalted daemon, for some more magic, some fun in the army, a strong fighter, some terror and modelling jobs.. ill combine a list with him and return very soon
