Default Army List CHALLENGE

Good evening/morning/afternoon (whichever applies at the time of reading) to you all.

I pose a challenge to you. It is to create an army list which...
  • ...is no more than 800 points.
  • ...you believe would, if played correctly, thrive in competitve gameplay (i.e. a tournament list).
  • ...does not spend more than 200 points on characters.
All that remains now is for me to wish you good luck.

And may the Lady/Dark Gods/Old Ones/Gork n' Mork/whoever you worship be with you.

Your third bullet is a tad redundant as 200 is the max for all slots other than core. Unless by characters you mean heroes and lords. And if that is the case, why?

Battles: 13/3
Wins: 8/2
Minor Wins: 0/0
Minor Losses: 1/0
Losses: 4/1

By the third bullet point, the total number of points spent on all Lords and all Heroes in total will be no more than 25% of the maximum points limit for the whole army. In normal games, it is 25% for Lords and Heroes each (please correct me if I am wrong).

I am interested to see what units people use, rather than what characters they use.

That is correct. One could run 200 points of lords and 200 points of heroes, usually a decent lord (high LD) and cheap heroes in some armies would potentially break the game.

I'm pretty sure the list would need to be legal. Your short two units for the min required.

Anyhow off the top of my head

lvl 1 damsel beasts with prayer icon

paladin bsb heavy armour, shield, Gromil great helm(If that's how it's spelt, don't have my book at hand) virtue of empathy

39 men at arms full command
39 men at arms full command

1 treb
1 treb

I think that all fits in 800. Plays as hordes or busses with the blessing on one unit and wildform to cast as needed. Trebs blow everything else away.

Incoming fire has right of way.

For mine I would do something like this:

Lvl 2 Tzeentch Sorcerer w/ Infernal Puppet

12 Warriors w/ shields, MoT, Mus, SB, Blasted Standard
12 Warriors w/ halberd+shield, MoN, Mus, SB, Banner of Rage
5 Chaos Warhounds
5 Chaos Warhounds

Basically just control the magic phase, march along the field blasting the enemy with fire and then close in for the kill.

My Armies:
Tyranids-Hive Fleet Hydrus(0/0/0)
WoC-The Host of Alctheus(0/0/0)

90pts - Branchwraith- annoyance of netlings
96pts- 8 Dryads
96pts- 8 Dryads
132pts- 10 Glade Guard- standard
132pts- 10 Glade Guard- standard
132pts- 10 Glade Guard- standard
120pts- 10 Glade Guard
= 798

Sit back an pincushion the enemy, forcing them to advance, then smash weakened enemy units with dryads. Branchwraith challenges any nasty enemy characters (only hit on 6s in challenges). Dyrads sit in a wood against anything nasty and get auto-stubborn (skirmishers).

I recon WE are one of the best armies at low points values as their core is incredibly powerful and won't normally be facing the kind of units they just can't counter (since their special/rare is pretty much just a bad joke).
