Riders of Slaanesh 1k list, revised

Revised slightly from the last 1k list based on more experience with the 750 pt-er.

  • Chaos Warhounds x5 - 30 pts - bait.
  • Chaos Warhounds x5 - 30 pts - re-added a 2nd unit; they are really needed as shooting-cover, throwaway flank protection, and to tie up enemies for a turn or two in close combat.
  • Marauder Horsemen, light armor, throwing axes, musician, Mark of Slaanesh x5 - 96 pts - repurposed back to throwing annoyance - with the third unit of marauders and their Exalted Hero leader they need this more than flails.
  • Marauder Horsemen, light armor, throwing axes, musician, Mark of Slaanesh x5 - 96 pts - ditto.
  • Marauder Horsemen, light armor, flails, musician, standard bearer, Mark of Slaanesh x5 - 108 pts - new unit, Hero escort.
  • Chaos Knights, full command, lances, Mark of Slaanesh x 5 - 285 pts - nothing's changed here. Can be sorcerer escort.
  • Chaos Sorcerer, level 2, Mark of Slaanesh, Chaos Steed (barded) - 141 pts - 4 dice, 2 spells, 2+ armor save. Not bad for a wizard. Lost the Spell Familiar to save points for a second unit of hounds.
  • Exalted Hero, Mark of Slaanesh, Steed of Slaanesh, Armor of Morrslieb, Halberd, Battle Standard, shield, Favor of the Gods - 234 pts - hunter/killer. Dropped the gift (Soporific Musk) as it only really matters vs. other cav, and even then if he's with the marauders they get a reroll on pursuit. 5 extra points from losing that and the spell familiar means he can have both a shield and Favour. End result: Four WS7, S6 attacks; T4 and a 3+ armor save (2+ vs. shooting) plus a 4+ ward save vs. non-magical; on a movement 10 fast cav that causes fear (won't help that much 'cause it's just US2) and has a poisoned attack (a single WS3, woo). Still, he's probably as good as many other army's Lords, albeit at about the same price...

Now I just gotta get the models. Shopping list: Mounted Sorcerer (I've been borrowing one of Nick's mounted Empire Battle Wizards), Lord of Slaanesh (yes, the boob-worm - that part is disturbing but the model as a whole is awesome), another set of Marauder Horsemen (I have one with flails and one with axes already; I'll retrofit a standard onto the flail unit and construct the new one with axes), Slaanesh Icons (these are from 40k - I'm going to use them as banner- and staff-toppers).

I've yet to roll on the Eye of the Gods table...perhaps I will get a chance at 1k. Hope to face off against Nick's Tomb Kings, Empire, and Wood Elves again, as well as possibly Dwarfs and Ogre Kingdoms at some point too.
