Hi guys,

 

A mate of mine and I have signed up for a doubles tournament in which each player brings a single detachment containing up to 1000 points worth of models. The two detachments have to have one faction keyword in common. For this we are currently looking at the below concoction:

 

Supreme Command detachment - Thousand Sons - 994 pts

 

HQ:

Ahriman on Disc - 166 pts

Daemon Prince of Tzeentch with talons and wings - 180 pts

Sorceror in terminator armour with force staff and inferno combi-bolter - 113 pts

 

Elites

Tzaangor Shaman with force staff - 90 pts

 

Lord of War:

Magnus the Red - 445 pts

 

Battalion detachment - Chaos Daemons - 997 pts

 

HQ:

Daemon Prince of Chaos with mark of Khorne, Skullreaver and wings - 180 pts

Poxbringer with mark of nurgle and Balesword - 70 pts

Spoilpox Scrivener with mark of nurgle and Plaguesword - 95 pts

 

Troops:

26 Pink Horrors - 182 pts

30 plaguebearers with daemonic icon and instrument of chaos - 235 pts

30 plaguebearers with daemonic icon and instrument of chaos - 235 pts

 

Total 1991 pts

 

What do you think of this combined list? The Khorne DP is there to take care of any big juicy targets we might run into like knights. Plaguebearers and horrors of course to be as much a nuisance as they can and protect the vital HQ's.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Regards

Sneaky

Daemon Prince of Tzeentch with talons, wings and Helm of the Third Eye - 180 pts

Troops:

16 cultists with brutal assault weapons and autopistols - 80 pts

10 cultists with autoguns - 50 pts

30 tzaangors with brayhorn - 220 pts

 

Elites:

Tzaangor Shaman with force staff - 90 pts

 

Battalion detachment - Chaos Daemons - 997 pts

 

HQ:

I reckon the list looks awesome and could pack a nice punch especially as you arent going up against LOW like knights etc. I'd maybe be concerned with anti-tank, if there are any guard lists running squadrons it might get hairy.

 

The other thing I noticed is with the troops on the TS Battalion you're running two small units of cultists and a bomb of tzaangors for 350pts combined. But you are running two shamans. For the exact same price you could run;

 

Cultists - 10 man unit with autoguns - 50 (backline objective unit)

Tzaangors - 20 man unit with blades and brayhorn - 150

Tzaangors - 20 man unit with blades and brayhorn - 150

 

This way you can run a shaman alongside each tzaangor unit giving buffs. Two nice sized 20 man units with 4++ (weaver of fates from shaman) and hitting on 2+ in combat (Bestial Prophet from shaman) is pretty nasty and will prove surprisingly hard to deal with.

 

Just my thoughts but if you have another plan thats g :)

Thanks for your feedback. My mate and I changed the list around quite a few times since I posted, and here's how it looks now. The playerpacks were altered slightly to allow two detachments per player up to a total of 1000 points:

 

Chaos battalion (+5CP) - tzeentch is common keyword

 

HQ:

Changecaster (Boon of Change, Gaze of Fate) - 65 pts

Changecaster (Flickering Flames, Treason of Tzeentch) - 65 pts

 

Troops:

10 Brimstone Horrors - 30 pts

10 Brimstone Horrors - 30 pts

26 tzaangors with brayhorn - 192 pts

 

 

Thousand Sons Supreme Command (+1CP) - 1 extra relic bought

 

HQ:

Ahriman on disk (Doombolt, Glamour of Tzeentch, Weaver of Fates) - 166 pts

Daemon Prince of Tzeentch with two sets of talons, wings and Helm of the Third Eye (Death Hex, Diabolic Strength) - 180 pts

Daemon Prince of Tzeentch with two sets of talons, wings - Warlord (High Magister) (Gaze of Fate, Warptime) - 180 pts

 

Elites:

Tzaangor Shaman with Dark Matter Crystal (Weaver of Fates) - 90 pts

 

Player total: 998 pts

 

 

Chaos Daemons battalion (+5CP) - 1 extra relic bought

 

HQ:

Daemon Prince of Chaos with mark of Khorne, Skullreaver and wings - 180 pts

Poxbringer with mark of nurgle and Balesword (Miasma of Pestilence) - 70 pts

Spoilpox Scrivener with mark of nurgle and Plaguesword - 95 pts

 

Troops:

26 Pink Horrors - 182 pts

30 plaguebearers with daemonic icon and instrument of chaos - 235 pts

30 plaguebearers with daemonic icon and instrument of chaos - 235 pts

 

Player total: 997 pts

 

Khorne DP with axe is there to put big dents in armour/fliers, and the TS ones can be buffed in turn with Diabolic Strength so they can do damage as well to juicy targets. Horrors will most likely be put in reserve for some deep striking while Brimstones will camp backfield objectives.

 

Tzaangors will naturally be bombed across the table with the Shaman supporting them. We feel this list has durability, damage potential and presence to be hard to play against. That said, none of us have any actual experience with either Daemons or Thousand Sons, so a learning curve is in place.

 

Thanks for any input in advance.
