I started a pure Tzeentch (for fluff) recently and was kind of reluctant to do it b/c , but I came up with a 2000k list specifically to fight SM chapters.

:hq:
Ahriman
:elites:
2 Terminators w/pair LC, IoT
1 Terminator w/HF
Land Raider
:troops:
10 Thousand Sons w/Sorceror (BoC), Icon, Rhino
10 Thousand Sons w/Sorceror (BoC), Icon, Rhino
10 Lesser Daemons
10 Lesser Daemons
:hs:
2 Oblits
2 Oblits
2 Oblits

It actually comes out to be 1999 pts.

I am sure you can guess where Ahriman goes. I have played this army once against WH and won. Comments and advice are welcome.

Ahriman sucks. No further discussion.

How an earth is that 2,000 points, You literally have next to nothing or so it feels.
Terminators aren't Tzeentch neither is running them in a 4. Take alook around on other Tzeentch lists, they all end up exactly the same anyway, so just steal someone else list.
-No point re-discussing what was discussed like 2 days ago.

thats rather hash from the guy who as the Mark of Khrone as his avatar.

Fluff wise it's not very fluffy. Ahriman is good and in 2000pts he's not a very big points sink. Ignore people who say don't tank him. Ya he's not as good as he first looks but this is a fluffy lsit not a competative list. they will have to like it and lump it.

The fluff problem is in almot everythign else. They dislike Obliterators as awsume as they are becuas eof there mutations so Predators or Vindicators are better choices fluff wise. The Termiantors make no sence. I dislike having a unit of 3 and having them with twin LC's for a tzeetch list seems unfluffy. Instead maybe take shotty Termaintors with 3 units of 3 with Combi-meltas and Reaper Autocannons.

I am sure you can guess where Ahriman goes.
Actually i can't. there is no space in the rhinos, nothing else for him to even join other than the Termiantors and that makes him in a floot sloging unit of 3 terminators..bad idea.
Also Tzeetch love the number 9 so what i would suggest is take 9(icluding sorcerer) Thousand sons in rhinos with extra armour and Ahriman can go in one of them and fire out 3 powers per turn form there relative safty of a rhino. The only other thing i could say is decress thje number of lesser daemons to 9 each for more fluff.

I'm a little surprised you have that much in a 2000 point army. It looks like a good list for the most part I hope you got everything you can.

As for Arniham. Its not really whether hes good or not. Its about what your getting for the points you pay for. To be honest, and a lot of tzteench players will say the same. You can make a sorcerer fully upgraded and with more stuff with using the same model than just using Arniham. He really was just put up for codex for fluff sakes.

If you would like to, or if you have extra points to spare, or if you want to change Arniham all together, you might want to get a daemon prince, for the fact that the new daemon princes are awesome to make, they cost as much as a sorcerer and they are better in almost every level. Plus you need some kind of monstrosity in close combat. Your terminators do not suffice.

Lesser Daemons cost to many points to me. I dont understand how daemons out number marines and guard yet they are the same amount of points. I'd use the list you have now with them, but try to save up for another scoring unit. Either regular space marines, or if you want to keep it a pure tzeench list some more rubric marines.

Obliterators- peace through superior fire power. :victory:

luck

My bad, I forgot to list the LR under the terms. I thought I already did it. It shas been edited so now it is included.
@ ROT: It is 2000 points and those terminators are Tzeentch (IoT=Icon of Tzeentch). I will not go around and steal others lists. That accomplishes nothing.
@jaws900: I will probably do take the squads down to 9, but I love oblits so I may switch them to 2 squads of 3 and add other choices.
@ckcrawford: I will prob take out Ahriman and put in a couple of DP of Tzeentch.

I shall fiddle with this list again, use it in a battle and repost. Thanks for the advice.
