Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok, so I was screwing around with the new book and came up with this little gem:
Mark of Slaanesh
whip of subversion
helm of many eyes
Essentially this guy is attatched to a warrior unit and goes character hunting... Preferably against other Heroes and Lords attatched to units. How it goes is like this, I challange an enemy hero, cause some wounds from attacking first (hopefully I don't kill him outright... CRAZY RIGHT!) and then using his own attacks against his unit! this way I get enemy characters to do my killing for me. the only down side is that his wounds go against me for combat res, which is why I put him in a unit of warriors with 3 ranks and a war banner (extra stikiness)
What does everyone think of this build?
Ive also thought of putting it on a sorc, but didnt want to waste the scroll caddy.

RAW-wise, yes his attacks would count against you, but I'm pretty sure that it will be played (and hopefully FAQ'd) that you get the CR for their wounds, not them.
The only problem with your plan is that you are still relying on what is essentially character assassination- meaning that your opponent can still easily flee the unit just before it's charged or take the challenge with the unit champ. Also, because you are footslogging, you may find it difficult to get the charge on the unit that you want to. it may work better putting this bloke on a unit of knights.
If you put him on a steed, you could even charge out alone (assuming you know the challenge won't be avoided) - the rest of the enemies can't do any except provide static Res, which could be relegated with the 2 characters worth of wounds. +1 CR for being a BSB woudn't go astray either...
Also, I don't think you appreciate how often Stupidity can be failed on a Ld, 8 model.
Yeah... the whip of subversion isn't really that great. In addition, when you say you will "Challenge and enemy hero", be ready for them to accept with their unit champ, wasting your hero's attacks, or to just refuse the duel altogether. Exalteds are scary, and on the offchance that you get one into a combat with someone you want to fight a challenge against, they are most likely not going to accept.
