Hee hee, I'd love to fight this with a Skaven army.

Or any army with some shooting power.

It won't be hard to knock out three chariots, once they're down your characters are walking into battle.

The dragon could be a bit of a problem but defensivley your magic isn't that great and I find concentrated warplighting can usually deal with dragons pretty effectivley. Same with the Shaggoth.

After that it's just a matter of charging those heroes and chasing them off via combat res.

Interesting idea but I don't think it'd hold up well in tournament play.

Yeah... faced a dwarf list last night with the following results:

First turn of shooting, dead shaggoth and chariot, wounded dragon and
lord.
Turn two, dead lord, last two chariots dead.
Turn three, dragon flys off, champion buys it.
Turn four, last character bites the dust.

But that was the finest dwarf shooting I have ever seen! I've faced the same list before and wped it out on turn 2 so it shows how unreliable shhoting can be in the warhammer world

It's true shooting can be very unrealiable at times, as can magic.

However combat results are usally very reliable. Losing combat by 3 points will often cause you to flee.

It's an interesting and unique army list, and kinda silly. I think it'd be fun to use a few times against friends (especially if they took equally wacky lists) but to use it on a regular basis or a in a very competitive environment I don't think you'd find it doing very well, and a lot of people would be unhappy with it.

Oddly enough the most effective and powerful Tzeench army I've ever fought had only 1 character!

He was backed up by BOATLOADS of Chaos warriors though.

strangely, the thing i look forward to at the GT is that it isn't designed to win at all! It's purely an exercise in how small an army you can get in 2k legally... if it upsets my opponents then so be it, I know it's unbalanced but not in a way that will make it win games, so I am happy with that aspect (and as they've changed the GT rules to allow special characters I don't think this is the list that will be the most upsetting there!)

3 core (3 chariots EVEN if there is a character riding it!)

as far as I can work out... this is the smallest legal army out there!

I like your style! Beefing up characters so that core are minned to the max.

NO!!!! You've missed the point! The whole idea was to get the smallest possible army that I can in 2000 points (less to paint for the GT!) It's just coincidence that all the characters are maxed out (war mammoths are not allowed )
BTW..... 12(ish) games with it so far, 1 loss and one draw..... everything else has been won!

I've played against a very very similar list in 3000pt games before...just using characters on Chariots alone to wreak havoc...backed up only by the odd Marauder horsemen to fill the points up.

Very very strange army...very very funny to play against.
