You could make the minimum unit size for the cultists nine, eight of course being the number of khorne.

Also it would be more sensible to make the magister besically a high sorceress with the mark of Tzeentch, Tzeen'neth as those who speak dark tongue know. In smaller battles the magister would basically be a marked mage. The thing to find out would be how much to reduce the cost of the mark by to take into account their prior magic abilities.

Basically stivk close to the CoS list and you shouldn't go too far wrong.

I agree with leth here. on both fronts, but the list itself looks ok, although i don't agree on the level 4 wizard thing, i thought that they were cultists who worshiped tzenntch and where his pawns not a ultra poweful magician, i think that you must chose a magister who is a level 2 and the rest are basic druchii characters with the exception of sorceresses and assassins, and the anointed of course.

A hero with level 4 magic, as long as it's a game of 2000 points or more? That's way too powerful, for anyone. He should be like normal characters of Tzeentch; level 4 if he takes a lord slot and level 2 if he takes a hero slot. Call one a "magister lord" or something to denote the difference.

You didn't get it; in games of 2k or more, the Magister counts as a lord, under it it's a hero. There should be a max and minimum of 1 Magister.

Oh... yeah that completely went over my head. ;) That's kind of wierd, though having a choice that fills either a lord or hero depending on game size.

Just a minor point - a spawn of tzeentch is called a Firewyrm, and has a breath attack (p27, HoC)

The Magister? I can see the name, sure, but you need to work on the Hero version, and give them different names, Lord Magister and Magister, they'll be fine.

A seperate entry for Magister is needed, just write up the rules for him under the Lord version.

The Hydra? Flames of Tzeentch? Sure thing, ;)

Although I dislike the Cultists for several reasons;
8+ Unit size. They should be 9+, fluff reason.
Too expensize. Lower their Points cost down to about 10.
Rip off of Daemonic Legion Horrors (sorry, but aren't Horror Champions Level 1 Mages with Red Fire? ;)).

And there aren't any Marauders? Nope, don't like that, :P (my 1000 Point Chaos Army has 48 Marauders in it.. :P)

Other than that, pretty good. I probably won't get round to using the list, seeing as I hate the Storm of Chaos lists (Middenheim and Daemonic Legion excluded), and this is pretty much a list that evolves from the Cult of Slaanesh (hence; why I don't like it. I don't mind Tzeentch or Slaanesh in general, but with Dark Elves? Okay I can see Slaanesh, but Tzeentch?!).

Still, hope the list does you well,
Darmort

Thing is, there can only be one. Magister. In any cult, only one. Not more, not less.

Quote:

In the Cult of Slaanesh, units retain their 5+ unit size. You could always make it one higher.

Quote:

Not neccesarily with Red Fire, but it's only sensible, Cultists are there to fight quickly, but most of all to learn/study magic, why shouldn't the best amongst them be wizards?

Quote:
Too expensize. Lower their Points cost down to about 10.

Remember, the unit has the Mark of Tzeentch, the Cultists are paying for that. Although we could make it 10 points each and then say 'has to have MoT for +20 points'.

Quote:
Okay I can see Slaanesh, but Tzeentch?!

You have the Hordes of Chaos book right? Read what it says in the description of Tzeentch. Something about giving power and knowledge. Hmm...would that fit Elves?

Ok I'm in head of the list making in this project so just blame me for all the stupid/wrong decisions ;).

So a few comments from me:

Quote:
Still, why the Chaos Warriors? (and why no marauders...)

I don't see no problems with the Chaos Warriors so enlighten me on that please. Ok I just kinda forgot about the Marauders and of course they would fit this list very well and they will be included.

Quote:

I just threw a number there and I thought the unit size would have to be bigger than five because of the champions upgrade. It could be plain cheesy if the minimum number was five, all those lv.1 wizards...

Quote:
He should be like normal characters of Tzeentch; level 4 if he takes a lord slot and level 2 if he takes a hero slot.

That's the way it is as Lethalis explained, it's just that the Magisters rules are not very readable yet and I take all the blame there.

Quote:
(Cultists) Too expensize. Lower their Points cost down to about 10.
I don't see them too expensive, they allready have the mark and I think they should have the mark since they are the most devoted worshippers of Tzeentch after the Magister.

Well, as I see it, the Tzeentchians in Druchii society need to be careful and hidden to stay clear from the Temple's wrath, not to mention any perverted cultists. And correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Chaos Warriors rather...well, noticable, especially bearing the mark of Tzeentch. Marauders cannot be marked and can proxied as slaves, so to say.

Good point there. How about limiting them, lets say 0-1 choice? I can see now though why they could be left out entirely, same goes for the Chaos Knights too I assume?

I've been thinking about it a bit, and if the Tzeentchians are not in big cities, then warriors should just be limited, as they're easier to hide...but I think Knights should have the same restriction as the ones in the CoP list, as large Cults (ie, 2k and above) could definately attract at least a couple of them.

Ok, I've been thinking of making a 1k list, and a couple of things became unclear, as well as a couple of suggestions forming;

-the Magister, can he/she have Chaos Armour?
-can units like Druchii Warriors, Dark Riders etc take the Mark?
-what lores can the Magister, Mages and the Cultist champions choose?
-in the CoP, there was no chariot cause they'd be fighting in the jungle, howcome there is none in this list?
-shouldn't Cultists, being the equivalent of Devoted, be 1+?
