Hi all.

Im playing a small tournament shortly andvwould like some ideas on my list. Its nothing serious but this almost ended us 2 Baneblades but I though I may not make many friends that way :p

HQ:
Skarbrand the Exiled (Warlord)
3 Khorne Juggerheralds Etherblades and Rage Loci

Elites:
3x3 Flamers of Tzneetch

Troops:
11 Bloodletters, Bloodreaper Etherblade
11 Bloodletters, Bloodreaper Etherblade
3 Nurglings

Fast Attack:
3x5 Fleshhounds

Heavy Support:
Khorne Daemon Prince, Warp Forged Armour, Flight Greater Reward
Khorne Daemon Prince, Warp Forged Armour, Flight, Greater Reward

With this Skarbrand would be my warlord and runs down the middle with 3 5 man squads of fleshhounds each with a juggerherald.

S5 I6 A4 AP2 beasts with Rage and Hatred everything (when near Skarbrand). Bye bye anything!

The princes and and flamers fly/jump down flanks and crush stuff.

Im in half a mind to have a second FoC and have both Princes Nurgle with Baleswords and replace the bloodletters with nurglings to scout and to free up enough points points.

With Skarbrand in there, I don't think the rage-loci are the best expense. Perhaps more Flesh Hounds in those squads instead?

I honestly don't play with Flamers that much (since the latest Daemons codex dropped, honestly), but they might work mopping up light enemy units... I'm just concerned about giving FNP to anything that's tough enough to survive the torching. Still, if you like the unit, by all means take it! It has the mobility and flaming potential to stack some wounds for late-game objective clearing for pretty damn cheap.

I've made a few slight changes. Though Id love to run more flesh hounds (and juggerheralds) as im running an all metal daemon army I dont have the investment money . . . Yet. The Fleshhounds are mostly there to act as look out sir for the heralds running up with Skarbrand.

Ive dropped the Loci as I forgot Skarbrand also conveys rage saved me enough points for Nurgle Princes 2+ Cover ftw!

I also dropped a few bloodletters to make up for increase rewarsd cost.

Now the Juggerheralds are S7 I5 A4 Ap2 with Rage Hatred from Skarbrand whoop!

I also kept the Flamers as I have alot of big meanies so they are mostly there to stop them getting tarpitted by Guardsmen or Cultists or Ork Boyz and such and to steal objectives late game

The Axe of Khorne is a lesser reward--sure you don't mean Greater Etherblade for that S7 on the assault you mentioned?

Fair enough on the flamers. Horde armies are a pain, so compensate as you need to.
