this exsalted realy impresed me during my 2000pts game vs lizzard men and beasts of chaos. he and his unit of knights were amazing and even after they died he broke then ran down a unit of saurus with hero... he was eventually killed by 40 skinks (with blowpipes repeating)
favour of the gods
bronze armour of khrak (addition after skinks of doom)
he gets 5 str7 Ws5 attacks then 3 Ws5 Str5 attacks he has a 1+ save and MR1 he is imune to killingblow and poisoned attacks and makes the eye of the gods bend over backwards for him...
only problem is lack of ward but to keep him cheap i won't add one.
he now features in all my lists my 500 looks like this
Exsalted (as above) 199pts
5 chaos knights
so can you find a hero for less than 200pts who is better?
only restriction no magic casters

yes, I was going to say - I can beat your Exalted with my cannon! 200pts is still a quite expensive hero level characters, considering he still only has 2 wounds. It depends if by "better" you mean kill the most number of dudes" and even then it's a bit iffy. I reckon the best Exalted would involve a combination the disc of Tzeentch and the banner of terror, possibly combined with a few ranged weapons / gifts too, if cost is no option...
i would agree but im planning to put him in a unit of tzeench knights (blasted standard!) in larger games (over 500pts...)
here is 1000pt list
exsalted hero (general)
Steed of slannesh
Collar of khorne
exsalted (as berfore)
frenzy is the real let down but if he charges alone i still could win combat...
(think about a challange against a lord that lord is toast...unless he aways strikes first then im screwed)
frenzy is also limited by the number of boards we have at my GW (we have 2 4x4s or 2 4x4s and a 6x4 on campain days) little room to manuver i tend to line up my charges in the deployment phase...
dispite the large number of pionts the exsalted and his knights cost (around 520pts) i think there worth it just for the look of horror they get from the opponent (you can just see them reaching for there wizzard lord...
so far we have two enterents
favour of the gods
bronze armour of khrak
Exalted of slaanesh 200pts
steed of slaanesh

just thought I should it to you on the side - you need a minimum of 2 core choices in anything under 2,000 pts. some people house rule it as only 1 in really small games (less than 500 sometimes), but spending so much of your points on characters (and uber elite units) can be considered a little unfriendly / cheesy.
At 1,000 pts or below, my main consideration would be for cheap and cost effective, so i would probably leave him with Flail and either a mark & steed OR a few magic items. I think your khorne dude for instance could still be quite good if you didn't buy him any magic items.
i agree this is my torney/undead/ogre list at my shop mpost people play horrid unfreindly lists i prefer to win but i love fluffy lists...
my shops idea of a fluffy list is 40 skinks 24saurus and a hard saurus hero and a unit of sallamanders at 1000pts or the ogre army of doom or the letys magic you to hell then raise anouther 20 skellies army of cheese...
im in ST.Albuns all armys are cheese or they loose horribly...
when its a new player i will do one unit of knights and warriors make the maruaders bigger and add a scorceror...
only reson im spamming knights with exsalteds is because there the only unit that impacts on the ogres of doom! (as you can tell we have rather a grudge to settle! in a frendly way sams also one of my best mates!)
in my old shop i wouldnt have done this but you need to change to fit with the enviroment!
on the note about the exsalted of khorne i agree entirely only reson i take the 20pts of items is because of the skinks no poison for you!
also a high elf player takes a noble with the Killing blow sword (foggoten name...) and then theres the magic heavy armies... there is the reson for the magic resistance on both knights...
