What kind of model counts and at what points value are you running with success? Something like:

"O&G 2k pts, just over 200, 3-4 are warmachines, 2-3 are chariots"

Is what I am fetching for

Dark Elves 3k:
105 infantry models, 10 cavalry, 2 monsters, character on chariot. 120 models in total.

I am somewhat restricted by the models I have, but I'd probably run more Hydras for competitive games, reconfiguring my magic and dropping less efficient infantry to get the points.

Warriors of Chaos at 2k

Anywhere between 40 and 60 models depending on the amount of characters/knights, including a Shaggoth and Warshrine.

WE- 67, 30 archers, 15 fast cav, 1 monster character, 3 other characters (2k)

Ogres- about 82, 38 ogres+like, 40 gnoblar, 1 warmachine, 3-4 characters (2.5k)


I'm just waiting for a skaven player to post... they'll be a while though; they're all still counting

High elves- 2250 pts; ~85 infantry plus a couple of mages, a couple of heroes, a chariot, and two bolt throwers

I do wish I could say that I "win" more often than not with this army, but since 8th came out that would be untrue. :angry:

All the weird points levels make the information look a little off (as 3k is a different game from 2k).

I guess what I am looking for would be the model counts that define 'elite' and 'horde' so one can know whats between, lol.

It is kinda looking like at 2k scale of:

50 (extreme elite)----75 (typical elite)----100-125 (middle ground)----150 (typical horde)----200+ (extreme horde)

This can be useful information for one looking at a new / first army if we can match it up to the various armies.

Thats a nice estimate, if a bit rough. I'd say its more like:

45-60 (extreme elite)----70-85 (typical elite)----90-125 (middle ground)----130-160 (typical horde)----170+ (extreme horde)

... though theres no sign of the Skaven players' input yet. :p

Not to many skaven armies go for a mega horde, too many points sunk into those awesome war machines and hell pit aboms :p

I'm not expecting a shooty Skaven list to have 250+ models but somewhere between 160-180. I mean the Slaves are piss easy to field in huge blocks, meaning that only some 300-400 points would mean around 200 Slaves in big 50-ratman strong units. Not that they'd need that many, but then again I've no idea how many they do. :p

Going off:
45-60 (extreme elite)----70-85 (typical elite)----90-125 (middle ground)----130-160 (typical horde)----170+ (extreme horde)

Where can we list each army? If we could amend / revisit the introduction to the armies to include this information and maybe an update for 8th, I feel it would be beneficial to the community!

Beastmen checking in!

Right now, I've only fielded 1500 points. Though I'm certain that 2k will be a whole new game for me. (access to "gorthor" lvl characters and lords)

1.5k Beastmen.
Appx (list has been varying but is best average.)

3 lords/heros/chars -->Core models: 65-->special models:15 (varies) Monsters: 3 chariots:1

Total: 93 models +3 monsters +1 chariot.

First skaven player :D
I usually play 2k battles, and my current favorite list has 247 models, including a grey seer and hell pit abomination. It would have more, but I don't have very many slaves

Ogre Kingdoms at 2000 points is nice. I've had success with:

1 Tyrant w/tenderizer
1 Slaughtermaster
1 Bruiser w/BSB, rune maw
1 Butcher w/dispel scroll, fireball ring
10 Bulls
40 Gnoblars
2x 3 Ironguts
2x 2 Leadbelchers
Gorger

(Tyrant and Bruiser go with bulls, and the Slaughtermaster and Butcher each go in a different unit of ironguts)

A Skaven-to-be here, by next month my army will be 80 Clanrats, 2 Warlock Engineers, 4 Weapon Teams (2 Mortars and two Warpfires), 4 Rat Ogres, 2 Packmasters and Warlord.

Guess what I'm buying?

Midnight

P.S. Oh, actually I might go with this army, Dark Elves are looking funky too...
