    2400 Infantry Heavy List

    Some of you may have seen a recent post of mine in the main thread about massing infantry, and after hemming and hawing a bit, I think I've found the core for my new list. What I'm interested in hearing is what I should add around this core to make it work.




    The set core- 1127 points

    Festus


    Aspiring Champion
    BSB
    Tzeentch
    barded Daemonic mount
    Great Weapon
    Shield
    Armour of Destiny
    254

    17 Nurgle Warriors
    Halberds
    Shields
    Full command
    353
    *Festus goes here*

    16 Tzeentech Warriors
    Shields
    Command
    Blasted Standard
    327
    *BSB goes here*


    The rest of the army


    Do I HAVE to bring a level 4 caster to be competitive? If so, I really have to go the DP route, if not, I like the disc lord as he is a tad cheaper and I already have the model.

    Disco Lord
    Tzeentch
    Crown of Command
    Talisman of preservation
    great weapon
    shield
    dragon helm
    third eye
    breath weapon
    403

    2 Chimeras with regen and flaming breath

    5 hounds

    5 hounds

    5 Slaanesh horsemen
    Musician
    Flails

    Nurgle Gorebeast chariot

    OR

    Nurgle Demon Prince
    Wings
    chaos armour
    charmed shield
    Dragon bane gem
    The other trickster's shard
    Scaled skin
    Level 4 sorcerer
    490


    2 Chimeras with regen and flaming breath

    2 units of 5 Slaneesh Horsemen
    Flails
    Musician

    5 hounds




    Tactics overall:


    The two units of warriors move up the field covered by hounds to help their survive-ability. Both units are deployed 6 x 3. The lord choice will roll with the pair of chimeras and first knock out any shooting, then go for rear or flank charges as the infantry arrives. The rest of the army is to deal with chaff or divert enemy units.

    Thoughts on the lists? Which looks better? What improvements could I make? Is this competitive or is it simply too slow?

    I don't tend to like the whole MoT BSB build its too easy to counter with a charge, ranks and banner. I tend to run my guy on foot with the tal of pres and the enchanted shield. 1+, 4++ is not a bad save for a BSB.

    Yeah, he would but the point is that is he is out on his own he will most likely run and ista die form combat res.
    If you stick him with a unit of infantry etc he will not.

    He's not on his own. He joins the Tzeentch warriors. While he doesn't get a LoS, he has 5 T, 3 W, 1+ sv and a 3++ so I'm not worried about his durability. The unit provide static combat res + his and the units massive killing power
