I overpaid by buying an extra power fist. Drop that 7pts, add a cultist with an Autogun, and swap the Aura of Dark Glory for a Spell Familiar.

Looks fairly solid. no exceptionally easy first blood targets. I think it would do ok vs TAC lists. Feels to me like dedicated assault armies will eat you up. aside from your HS choices most of your shooting is short range, so your only going to get one round of shooting before they are in your face.

TBH, the problem i have with most Tzeenchy lists is that you take tzeeench units and marks Smile

I think the extra troops choice should serve you well, Mark. I'd want to make that squad a touch bigger, though, so it would have enough wounds to survive any length of time.

I'm a big fan of the Khorne marked bikes. They can assault on turn two... which is killer. Uncle bad touch is a bit iffy though :-) He'll probably *destroy* me :-)

Indeed. The goal, with the army, is to get 3 Mutilators, then call it a day (swapping out the terminators... 55x3 = 165 + 24 for MoT to make them 4++, Ahriman makes them inflitrate, they assault turn 2, generally, in theory)

I'm confident that between the Forgefiend and Obliterators, I can manage to deal with 1-2 flyers.

I also think some much improved tactics on my part will help too. Cultists are really there to eat up points and maybe score a backfield objective. Although *every game* that Heavy Stubber has made back it's points (Lascannon guy, Terminator... other stuff I can't remember right now... I love that guy)
