Hi guys, I'm planning a horde army and was initially going to build it around mass Tzaangors with Sorcerers and possibly Magnus, but 200 odd Tzaangors is going to cost me far too much money.
Cultists on the other hand are very cheap on eBay so I came up with this basic list.....
Combined Arms Detachment
2 Exalted Sorcerers (maybe upgrade one to Ahriman)
6 units of 30 Cultists
Comes to around 2k points depending on upgrades, and can be scaled down to lower points by removing bodies.
The general idea would be that the Sorcerers join a Cult unit each and give them fearless, and providing additional warp charges for Magnus, 3 of the units can camp on backfield objectives while the other 3 move out. Magnus goes around casting powers, turning people into Spawns, and maybe summoning Chariots. And generally just looking cool standing over 180 dudes!
Oh and the Cultists have Objective Secured.
What do you think about this? Im not sure about giving the camping Cultists autoguns and heavy stubbers, are they worth it? Could give them the Mark of Tzeench to keep things fluffy?
Or maybe get some Munitorum Armoured Containers for the potential bonuses?
There aren't any horde players at my local club so I think this would add some variety to games, but as I have no experience using a horde, I have no idea if this sort of list could hold its own.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
