I'm making a combat heavy list for a change and I find myself in a weird spot I'm not used to. That is, I have extra points I don't know where to spend. Basically the list is 3 khorne missiles 2 warhounds, some raged up nurgle knights and some blasted tzeentch knights. Plus my characters of course. That leaves me exactly 232 points. I originally was just going to throw 3 Dragon Ogress with GWs in as they come to 231 points. They are as fast as the knights, have 12 wounds and don't suffer from spirit of the forge disease. I DON'T have banner of the gods in this list
My question is, I could use those points for more knights instead. 3 units of chaos knights is a scary thing, with those points I could make 5 naked knights with command, or 5 nurgle knights, or 5 tzeentch knights with a musician. All are great options.
I like the Drogers, for two reasons, 1) is that you get get some serous can opener attacks on certain things your knights cant handle as easily. 2) According to the 8th ed rumors, only drogers will be able to march move, as knights will move like chariots. Plus it looks like they will get some kind of crush special attack. Thats just my opinion though
yeah, i gotta agree wit danda... When i initially bought into WoC i had 15 knights, i used to use the majority of them, but now that i have dragon ogres wit great weps, i only use 10 at the very most... Dragon ogres with a good charge will wipe clean pretty much any rank and file unit, are great for catching flanks, and have much higher success against things like a steam tank or w/e. Long story short, STR7>STR5.
I wonder if there will be cake.....
I don't know what you're running for characters, but from what you listed i don't see any can openers, D.O.'s with GW's are amazing for that. Despite the lack of BotG, they are still very very nice units. Not to mention they add a lot of wounds to your army, another thing the list is probably lacking.

Funny you mention that, because I ended up playing a ringer army for a tournament I ran yesterday and used the DOs. Ran into a double sTank army. I was able to get the charge off with the DrOgres against 1 tank and did 3 wounds. I guess that's decent. Unfortunetely I didn't expect the other sTank to burn 5 steam points and hit my guys in the rear next turn. Wiped the whole unit out. Still they helped to kill that 1st tank. I noticed that with a full unit of khorne missiles and a full unit of raged knights with an exalted weilding the sword of battle that 35 str 5 HITs, since you auto hit, was mostly just bouncing off the armor. I should feel good that I killed 1 tank and left the 2nd with 3 wounds. Was actually kind of epic. bottom of turn 6 I have 30 str 3 attacks on the tank, 1 unit of slaanesh horsemen and 1 unit of khorne horsemen(2nd round of combat). I actually wounded the bastard 10 times and he needed to fail 3 1+s and he didn't even fail 1
I'll post my list up in the army section. My untouchable lord did twice, in two games, LOL. But one was to a dragon(I still won that round though somehow and chased Karl and his dragon down!) and the other was to an assassin that popped up AFTER I already used my word of agony.
