Default Beast of an Exalted Hero

Just looking through my army book and put together a really mean, hard hitting, challenge beast Exalted Hero to be used against armies with low I scores...

Exalted Hero with Mark of Nurgle or Khorne (depending on I scores of enemies)
Helm of Many Eyes
Dawn Stone
Scaled Skin
Great Weapon

WS7, S7, 4A (or 5 with MoK), re-roll failed armour saves of 1+ (chaos armour, SS and HoME) and striking with an I score of 6 (which is pretty decent) the ASF of the helm and the ASL of the great weapon cancel eachother out. I calculate this build at 196 points, which, for what it is... is pretty damn nasty and could go toe to toe with a Black Orc Warboss... Enemies at -1 to hit if you take MoN instead of MoK. Just a thought I had if anyone was having trouble making a build for a general in a low points game. Let me know what you think.

The true nature of Chaos is beyond any comprehension. No mere mortal can ever hope to understand these matters, and the wise do not puzzle too deeply over Chaos Gods, or try to fathom their wars, rivalries and bickerings.

Yah chaos tends to be able to make some scary combat characters. However for a standard bearer I would prefer the ultimate shield built instead of the ultimate sword build. Just through a GW, talisman of protection enchanted shield and mark of tzeentch on your BSB and watch as it takes 3-4 turns fro em to die even against the strongest of combatants.

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

For 4 more points my army gets skullfu... I mean skulltaker. Not worried at all ;)
But as for non named characters, he's pretty dirt hard, lack of ward save might harm him though as I am seeing a lot more KB in armies these days.

The idea for him is to be in a low points game (where you can't take a Lord) but I know what you're saying, with a MoN most things will be needing 5's or higher to hit him and a re-roll on 1+ (because in low point games chances of coming up against something strength 5 or higher is pretty unlikely). I might give this fella a go next time I play my mates Orcs army, or my brothers Skaven army and let you know how he fairs.
