    What to buy for 8th edition? Adapting my Force

    Hey there LO crowd. I've recently been offered $350 for an old Empire army and figured the time was ripe to expand on my WoC army for 8th. This army has been around for a while and I used to used both Daemons and Beastmen as allies. Now I can use my beastherd as marauders and my Daemonettes as cheerleaders.

    I was wondering if you guys could help me plan my wishlist. I can't get the rulebook until next week but need to give the guy my order soon so I'm kind of guessing. Here's what I have so far (mostly Slaanesh-themed):

    -Lord on Dragon
    -Character on Slaanesh Steed
    -Standard Bearer on foot
    -2 Sorcerers on foot or chariot

    -20 Warriors painted in purples and with 2 hand-weapons
    -20 Marauders painted with a little purple but easy to repaint to a theme. Hand weapons and shields (16 models and a 4-model filler)
    -20 Beastmen of Marauderyness
    -10 Hounds

    -2 units of 5 Knights with standard and musician (not painted, hurray for options)
    -6 Converted Ogres (unpainted but looking very Nurgly)
    -2 Chariots (why are these special now?)
    -3 Dragon Ogres

    -1 Ugly-looking Spawn


    What I was thinking was that I'd need to beef up the Marauders and maybe the warriors. I'm also in need of some light cav. so:

    -One WoC Battalion for 20 Marauders, 12 Warriors, Hounds and knights (really don't need knights)

    -4 boxes of Marauder Horsemen

    This puts me at around 240 CAD. Is this a good plan?

    Thanks in advance for any help and sorry for the long read.

    You don't need the hounds or knights really from the battalion. And 4 boxes of marauder horsemen might be a bit too much. Vanguard makes the fast cav better, but you'll run out of room, unless you're planning for 2 or 3 bigger units, which might not be bad. I've always found more than 2 units of dogs and you end up blocking yourself more than your enemy and now dogs won't even provide cover for the knights behind them.

    Might think about a character or two more.

    You might be right about the Battalion: You can buy 16 Marauders for $42 which, plus tax, comes to about $3/model. The Warriors are the same cost for 12 and so are $4/model. The battalion contains 20 marauders and 12 warriors which would cost you $168 by itself. Thats $40 before tax wasted on models I don't need.

    How about getting a Marauder horde?

    4 boxes of 16 Marauders and 4 boxes of Horsemen gives me (once I add the ones I have) 80 Marauders and 20 Horsemen. Also, I still have the 20 Beast-Marauders if I need it. This all comes to about $300. I can get some characters!
