alright so a friend of mine is starting a campaign but wanted to lower the points cost to 1500 for some weird reason. so here is what I came up with

GUO 190
Breath of chaos

GUO 190
breath of chaos

3 flamers 105

3 flamers 105

7 plaguebearers 105

5 pink horros 95
bolt of change

5 pink horrors 95

soulgrinder 160
phlegm

soulgrinder 160

1415

so it leaves me with 85 points that i don't know what to do with. I am debating if I should change one GUO to a bloodthirster with unholy might with the last couple of points or what. Tell me what you think I should do with the last couple of points

As I am coming into the mega love for bloodletters I would cut one of the GUO for a tzeentch herald with all the biz (110 points) thats another 80 points saved and then with your 165 points I would buy 10 bloodletters. That way you get even more shooty, still have a scary ass monstrous creature and the awesomeness that is bloodletters.

hhmm I am not a fan of heralds at all. but i was thinking of getting some letters in the list. i could drop one of the units of horrors to do it. I'm still not entirely sure

tzeentch herald is awesome how can you not be a fan? 5 wounds, can jet around like a bike and has so many abilities that make it good at shooting (gaze, bolt, master of sorcery and we are legion) for just 110 points its an absolute steal.

Also just realised with your horrors why havent you upgraded one of the units to have the changling? that guy is worth his weight in gold.

I like having a monstrous creature over a herald any day.( it's more a personal preference than anything )

I don't have a changeling model. I will have to convert one before I try using one

there isn't actually a changling model at the moment (that I'm aware of) I have just painted one of my horrors completely different to the others. Never had someone moan about it.

These seem a little expensive. As GUOs are best used as big, fat, smelly distractions I like to keep them as cheap as possible. Just give them Cloud of Flies and they are golden.

Just perfect.

Lovely, fluffy, cheap and universally useful.

If you drop the breath on the GUOs you can have more of these. What's not to love?

Uuuuurrrkkk!!! Well, at least that's what I think they sound like when they start puking pieplates on marines.

All I have with my Heralds of Tzeentch is just the chariot of Tzeentch, it makes them sooo good, the enemy feels like they have to kill them or they'll be picking off units. And all for a cheap as chips 65pts.

I don't know why people like Cloud of Flies, on a Monstrous Creature they are pretty useless. If your using them GUO as distractions I say just keep them base

Love it

Perfect base of troops that will equal out when splitting the two different deepstrike forces

cloud of flies is there simply to reduce the amount of attack the Guo will take when they get charged,I know the assassult grenade part of the rule is useless on a Guo since they are such a low int but the defence grenades are well worth 5points imo,

thanks for you reply though seems like the rest of the changes I made look good
