Is this enough to make a decent army? I don't play fantasy, I don't have a codex. Just wondering if these models would make a decent army and approximately how many points would this be?
Well, the sorceror certainly isn't fluffy but hey, if it plays well who cares. Beyond that your army will almost always be out numbered which will present a problem. You need to add a few throw away units to the list.
Frenzy (put on by the mark of khorne) will make any fast, or shooty army have a field day. I suggest you add screens (warhounds are best).
Because of the nature of the MoK, your best bet is to make sure you don't mark all the units you can. More than a waste of points they will your opponents fast moving units bait you into charging (frenzy means you MUST charge when in range) and exposing your flanks, bad news for a small eliteist army.
Now for the constructive stuff. I always add marauders into my lists. Footmen and M. Cavalry if I can. Some will say that warriors are better but particularly against archer or mage heavy armies they add one or two large blocks of rather useful extra wounds.
Do you already have the ogres? If not I would replace them for a hellcannon. At 270 points they're a steal.
Last but not least though if the list you have already is legal and you think it looks good, then keep it or make only minor ajustments to it. If you think the army looks cool then you can learn to use it well. A dodgy looking, all conquering army however, will always look crap.
Food for thought mate, I'm sure a vet will give you the run down on some specifics soon.
What is the most humane way to kill a lobster, in the fridge or with Michael Bolton music?
Im not sure on the points as i dont have my army book (not codex! this is fantasy! ) but depending on the level of your sorceror and champions its probably around the one thousand points mark? Maybe a bit more...
To what you have already id add some Marauders and a good sized screen of Chaos hounds

MARUADERS! MARAUDERS! MARUADERS!!!! Wait... no, nvm, MARAUDERS! these guys present an awesome screen, and are a little tougher than you're standard run-at-the-mill grunt for most armies (cept maybe ogres =)) They have a lot of flexibility, and their mounted cavalry are awesome for outflanking slow armies like dwarfs and empire, though will easily break if you dont follow em up with some pressure to the front. I am working on an all marauder army, with chariots mixed in. I'll give you guys some info to how it turns out, premiering either this weekend or next (depends on how quickly I can green-stuff and paint the mammoth)
