Good with Khorne
Good with Slaanesh
Good with Nurgle
Good with Tzeentch
I am planning to bring one for my tzeentch army just wondering what you guys thought. (If you think its good with more than one good click on all the ones you think it's good with).
P.S. Remember only MORTAL armies.

That's right, llamas can parachute.
It all depends on what else you have it the army really. Generally they are seen as overpriced for their ability, with the points better spent elsewhere. Ofcourse if youre like me and love the model then that alone is reason enough to take it imo.
Im afraid i really cant put a definite vote it, it all depends on the rest of the army. Though with Tzeentch, i can imagine you have 1K ish in characters already, so he with the DOShaggoth taking up a sizable chunk, there wont be a lot else in there.
Hmmm no way...a model such as a shaggoth, for x points, should be granted many more attacks/wounds, i mean at least some 8 wounds and 8 attacks, even for fluffy reasons (shouldn't be shaggoth champions huge as mountains?).
For gaming purposes, it is so costy that it becomes useless: for those same points (exactly 1 point less than a shaggoth of slaanesh armed with gw and la) you can field 6 chosen knights plus a warbanner. There is no comparison imo
If i were forced to field a shaggoth, though, i'd mark it slaaneshi. 5 ASF attacks @S7 can be seriously threatening
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
A pretty resounding NO from me, unless you seriously like the model...He's way too expensive for what he can do.
The models is great but the rules are terrible. I would only recommend using him on a regular basis against skaven as their best removal abilities (the warp lightning spell and the warp lightning cannon) only make him stronger.
Shaggoth is very expensive model. I will take normal Dragon Ogres for rare slots.
He may be good like champion with mark (for me MoS), but I think than he can't be general of mortals.
... try Czech language ;-)
people whine about DE and some of the other armies needing updating, but imo, Beasts are the most deserving of an update. It's like GW said, let's make an army that is like some of our other armies, but make it worse in every way. Shaggoths are too expensive an poor point costed models. leadership is dismal, no shooting, no armor, magic = subpar, unless you cheese it. The only thing good they have are minotaurs and chariots. You can't put your characters in anything but herds or bestigors, herds are unruly, can't rank up (only 4 wide) Ambush is so whimsical. Beasts are one of my favorite armies, but man they have been thrown off the bus, especially in light of some of the new army books. Problem is, they probably won't get a redo until 2009 at best.
