Welcome to Librarium Online!
I hope this is in the right place, i've been having a awful time trying to write a list for what i've got, and i was wondering if YOU the faitful members of LO could help.
Well so far i've got:
1 lord with sword and shield in chariot
2 standard bearer
4 4chaos knights
5 3 ogres w/great weapons
6 3 ogres w/two hand weapons or hand weapons w/shield
7 3 chaos spawn
and im willing to spend about Â£60 in the near future to get it up to 2000 points, the fantasy armies at my club are as follows:
Hard hitting OK army
Magic heavy TK army
Unknown skaven army
FAST wood elf army with dragon
I would really appreciate some help.
I really can't think of anything witty to say.
Wow, that's some task.
As it stands, you have 3 core choices for a mortal army... the chariot with the character, the lone chariot and the knights. The ogres each take up a special choice, and your 3 Spawn take up both rares... but what you're missing are NUMBERS!
I don't know how far that money will take you, but I'd think that first off you'll need at least 2 boxes of warriors or marauders. Right now, the death of any model in your army will cost you at least 33 points, and that's just nuts.
this is spot on. You will need to rank and file troops, and beyond that some speed ( marauder horsmen, and furies possibly).Originally Posted by version9
Your army looks like a medium speed shock force. The ogres/knights slam things, and the spawn/chariot mop up. I'd field the ogres as chaos ogres w/ hvy armor and shield, so you'll have a unit which can absorb some charges. Here's some troop thoughts.
1. Warhounds. Screen, bait charges, attack war machines/mages, and expendable. I never leave home without them.
2. Furies and/or Screamers. Especially for march-blocking. Another special choice, and you don't have many left.
3. Marauder Horsemen: Sort of a compromise between 1 and 2. Also Core.
4. Maruader infantry or a BEASTHERD. Cheap rank bonuses. but they'll slow your army down a bit.
Two things don't seem to fit. It looks like your standard bearer is on foot, and as such will have difficulty supporting all your medium speed troops. Also, 3 horrors? did you mean 3 screamers? Horrors are pricey and only useful if you are going magic heavy.
Any thoughts on Marks for your army? Slannesh could also be nice against fear and terror checks, and to speed up those spawn.
