Dropping the warriors would free up the points for some knights (and I'm about to paint up some old school knights you'd be welcome to borrow) - stick the BSB in there and you have another really good hammer unit. Also, I have a giant which again you're welcome to use, again similar points trade.

Alternatively, a BSB/Exalted on disc and a flying Daemon Prince plus all those marauder horse should mean you're aggresively in the opponent's face Turn 2 and then there's only one Magic phase to endure.  I'm pretty sure there'll be spares of those at the club you can borrow?

I've been thinking about this a bit more but I keep running into the same wall I have done since the new year - with 9th around the corner I'm really reluctant to pick anything up which could be unusable in a couple of months.

One of the problems I had Tom was that the 50% lords thing means its not just about jumping the level 4. Elves can have several very effective high level casters or even fighty high level casters.

The warriors and BSB were pretty rubbish, the bsb  as there to try and keep the trolls moving. With no special characters (no throg) allowed it would have been better to stick him on a mount of some ilk, slot him in the troll unit and risk him being sniped out.

Sinking a lot of points into a Warrior block and BSB who presumably wasn't that near a lot of your army seems odd - I was toying with the idea of Wulfrik in a block of Marauders as (with the Seafang rule) you get to pop up on a random board edge, good for clearing out an opposing wizard's bunker or warmachines).

Anti magic wise - Daemon Prince with Brass Collar killing the opponent's caster?  You're mostly Khorne anyway so why not go the whole hog.  Magic's for wusses.

To Waagh or not to Waaagh that is the question

I've just got back for the practice event for London's Burning, where I tried out a different style of warriors list.

I was rocking a jugger lord, nurgle bsb (on foot), 4 x 5 Khorne marauder horse, 4 khorne chariots, 16 nurgle warriors, 10 trolls, 3 juggers and 2 khorne spawn,

I narrowly lost to Rob and Edd in my first two games and should have won at least one of them. But after two rounds I'd already scored more points than I do in three games. In the third game I played Thomas (using woodies). I got smashed and the world was back to its rightful place.

Now I've never used a jugger lord before but I like it. Plenty of smash but needs an extra friend in his retinue an one to be promoted to champion to keep the lord out of challenges. I also need magic. I sort of got away with it for the first two games but the third showed that I need better magic defences if nothing else.

I liked the feel and the pace of my list but the warriors did very little and were a waste of points. In this comp no special characters could be taken and only two chariots count for core. I'd like to try this list a bit more so tweaking will be necessary,
