Next game in the campaign, Khorne mortals are up.
I dropped magic, wanted to have a go at a bsb.
  • 1 War Hydra @ 175 Pts
  • 5 Cold One Knights, std @ 151 Pts
  • 9 Har Ganeth Executioners, Draichmaster @ 120 Pts
  • Hag Queen, Manbane,Witchbrew, BSB, BoHG 200 Pts with execs
  • 5 Dark Riders, Muso, Rxb @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Dark Riders, Muso, Rxb @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 5 Shades, GW @ 90 Pts
  • 1 Assassin, Ahw, Manbane, Rending stars @ 151 Pts
    Total Cost: 1231

Assassin is to put some hurt on chariots and characters, worked very well against a HE dragon.
Three hard hitters:Hydra, COK and execs, which even can take a charge.
DR and harpies for march blocking. Harpies also for baiting, DR to kill his fast cav.
Shades are for delivering Assassin, marchblocking and flank charges.

I am not sure, whether I need the witchbrew on the execs, since they will be 10 strong.

C&C are welcome.

But it almost is (to me at least). I'd say RoK over Witchbrew on the BSB, the extra attacks might do some more combat resolution then the outnumbering that goes away, but that's personal. I like it.

The list looks good.
I'd go with Thanatoz and switch witchbrew for RoK.
Since you've got 19Pts left, you might want to give the shades a champ or make them 6 strong.

Ahem, he is at home, having a party and leaving battles to his trusted lieutenants. ;)

I knew it was to good to be true.

Hm, drop one Exec and degrade the draichmaster to a standard exec. Then call the master away from his party, dress him up in combat gear and pay the points over 1250 out of my gold allowance for this campaign.

*mumbles to himself* Stupid, leaving without the boss.

  • 1 War Hydra @ 175 Pts
  • 5 Cold One Knights, standard bearer @ 151 Pts
  • 8 Har Ganeth Executioners, draichmaster @ 108 Pts
  • 1 Death Hag (BSB), manbane, RoK, BoHG @ 200 Pts
  • 5 Dark Riders, rxb, muso @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Dark Riders, rxb, muso @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 1 Assassin, ahw, manbane, rending stars @ 151 Pts
  • Master, gw, sdc, sh, blood armor, PoK @ 140 Pts
  • 5 Shades @ 80 Pts
    Total Roster Cost: 1349

That leaves me a hundred over, which is not a big problem, since we are allowed to spend more and pay from campaign gold. In fact all my opponents did that to me.
Only thing I think I could spare are the shades.
Any comments?

why a unit of 8 executioners? with the BSB that leaves you with a frontage of either 9 or 5 and 4? both of those seem less than ideal but with a few losses on the way to combat it might be reasonable... unless you plan on charging two units at once with them.

The general goes with the execs too, I don't want him running around alone. That's what the assassin is for.
It's a lot of points in one unit, but I hope it's worth it in the end.

That is illegal, you can't have a non Khainite character in a group of Khainites, so the Master isn't allowed to join the Executioners. Also the problem stands that shooting and magic will totally break that unit unless screens are perfected. and since the assassin replaces one of the executioners, then you will still be lacking in numbers, i would find a way to either increase the squad to have at least 11 fighting 6 wide at the front 5 at back, or bring it down, cause that extra rank won't do as much as having more attacks at the front. actually, should be equal. one more killing blow or one more row, but whatever you can afford, and whatever you can afford to lose to shooting will accentuate any decision you make

Since my opponent is using WoC-Khorne I think shooting will not have much of an effect.
But you are right about non-Khainite characters.

Obviously my mind is out of order, as the posts above show.
  • 1 War Hydra @ 175 Pts
  • 5 Cold One Knights, standard bearer @ 151 Pts
  • 9 Har Ganeth Executioners, draichmaster @ 108 Pts
  • 1 Death Hag (BSB), manbane, RoK, BoHG @ 200 Pts with execs
  • 5 Dark Riders, rxb, muso @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Dark Riders, rxb, muso @ 117 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 5 Harpies @ 55 Pts
  • 1 Assassin, ahw, manbane, rending stars @ 151 Pts
  • Master, lance, sdc, sh, blood armor, PoK, CO @ 160 Pts
    Total Roster Cost: 1301

The shades are gone to keep my costs a bit lower and general is mounted on CO with the knights.
That weakens my shooting, but Khorne isn't inot that anyways.

Dropping the PoK and taking Ring of Hotec will make the army more resistant to magic. And you really need it because you don't have any casters-dispellers and dispell scrolls. All rest army is ok.
