Army Lists

Steamroller 2012 – Grand Exemplar Kreoss

Lists in Steamroller 2012 are very different for me than last year. Firstly I have a lot more painted, and planning on getting even more painted. Secondly the character restrictions and reinforcements have meant I have had to shuffle my lists around. So onto my choice of warcasters which are Grand Exemplar Kreoss, Thyra, Flame of Sorrow and Hierarch Severius. Thyra is mainly my anti Hordes list, I have had a lot of joy with Thyra against Hordes factions. But onto my first list and Grand Exemplar Kreoss.

Grand Exemplar Kreoss is the warcaster I have been playing the most with recently, so this list is more set in concrete more than the others. I mainly wanted a high number of weapon masters in this list. The Daughters of the Flame aren’t weapon masters, but they do benefit from the feat. I nearly opted for another unit of Knights Exemplar, but included High Paladin Dartan Vilmon and a Paladin of the Order of the Wall for taking control of flags. High Exemplar Gravus is included for some anti-knockdown with the Covenant being restricted. Finally two character solos. Eiryss, Angel of Retribution and Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord. Eiryss for stripping focus of a warcaster and disruption, and Rhupert for giving out tough and pathfinder.

First Protectorate of Menoth 35 points

Here is my first proper Protectorate of Menoth 35 points list.  The Paladin of the Order of the Wall, Choir of Menoth and Vassal of Menoth are all on order and hopefully will be here within the week.  The Exemplar Bastions will be ordered shortly!  I decided to opt for the Reckoner heavy warjack over another unit as I love the miniature.

War Caster
High Exemplar Kreoss

Heavy Warjacks
Crusader
Reckoner

Light Warjacks
Repenter
Revenger

Units
Choir of Menoth (4 miniatures)
Exemplar Bastions (5 miniatures)

Solos
Paladin of the Order of the Wall
The Covenant of Menoth
Vassal of Menoth

I have also decided on the miniatures for my 50 point list, with only a question over the The Wrack or Vassal Mechanik.  Going to have another attempt to successfully build the Exemplar Errant Seneschal without the banner becoming weak at the joints.  These are the miniatures which will make up the 50 point list.

Exemplar Errants (5 miniatures)
Exemplar Errant Officer & Standard Bearer (2 minatures)
Exemplar Errant Seneschal
Daughters of the Flame (5 miniatures)
The Wrack or Vassal Mechanik

So my plan is to have the entire 35 point list fully painted and based by the end of the year.  And to play a game at least once a week with the list between now and the end of the year.


8th Edition Warriors of Chaos at 2,400 Points

I have put together this Warriors of Chaos 2,400 points for 8th edition Warhammer Fantasy.  Its not the best list by far, but its the list that I can field at the moment.  For example do the Warriors of Chaos need three Sorcerers?  I could lose a level two Sorcerer and include a Warshrine or Hellcannon.  Plus some of the fat could be trimmed, do the Marauder Horsemen need the full command and mark of Tzeentch?  Even though the army is at 2,400 points its still pretty small on the battlefield.

I also put together a 2,250 and 2,000 point versions of the list.  For example the 2,000 point list loses only a level two Sorcerer, one unit of Chaos Hounds, the Chaos Spawn and a few magic items.

Most units are Mark of Tzeentch for the ward save, the Chosen have Mark of Khorne for the extra attack.  Now that Frenzied units can pass a Leadership test not to charge and with a re-roll from the Battle Standard Bearer, I can nolonger see the down side to Frenzied troops.

Daemon Prince (575 pts)
Level 4 Sorcerer, Mark of Tzeentch, Tendrils of Tzeentch, Fury of the Blood God, Bloodcurdling Roar

Warriors of Chaos 2250 points

I have been pouring over the Warriors of Chaos army book recently in the attempt to get my first Warriors of Chaos 2250 point army ready for its first tournament outing in February.  The Warriors of Chaos army book has a lot more effective magic items, gifts, etc than the Ogre Kingdoms and far less restrictions.  Because of the better choices it has taken me a lot longer to build an initial list!

Chaos Spawn (55 pts)
Causes Fear, Unbreakable, Lurching Horror, Flailing Appendages

Even though the Daemon Prince has a few short comings it is a MUST HAVE for my Warriors of Chaos army.  The Sorcerer Lord on Dragon may be more effective, but I really like the Be’Lakor miniature.

The main problem with a Daemon Prince is that it doesn’t have access to any Magic Items, therefore no access to Dispel Scrolls or Magic Attacks. So to overcome this problem I have included a Level 2 Sorcerer equipped with the Infernal Puppet, this should help keep the Deamon Prince alive. Because the Infernal Puppet is 35 points I couldn’t have a Dispel Scroll, so another Level 1 Sorcerer equipped as a Scroll Caddy to aid in Magic Defence is also in the army.  Yes I know the army is a “Gateway for the Win” build, but what else can you do with a Daemon Prince with no magical attacks, armour, etc?

The Black Tongue is on the Battle Standard Bearer as both hero level Sorcerers are loaded with arcane items.

This list will probably change through out the year, as many “comp’ed” tournaments don’t allow such combo’s as the Black Tongue and Infernal Puppet.  I have also seen Tendrils of Tzeentch banned in some tournaments.

Every thing in the army is painted apart from the Chaos Knights and Marauder Horsemen, currently only have 19 days before its first tournament outing to get these completed.  Plus I want to get at least a couple of practice games in before then.  If I fail in getting the Marauder Horsemen painted for the tournament then I could swap in some Chaos Ogres, but that will be a last resort.



Warriors of Chaos 2250 points
