First post here on these forums. I am along time tourney gamer, mostly with orcs an WOC. But with the new rules and cool models I wanted to give the evil stunties a go. I used to have a big old collection of the big hats back in the day, but traded them for some dirty rat men.
This is the list i am thinking of running, I think it is pretty solid and competes in all phases well. Please let me know what you think.
Prophet level 4 Hashut
Level 1 Metal
27 Infernal guard
6 Bull Centaurs
Any opinions most welcome
Time of Madness:
Fairly solid list in my opinion. If you want to make it that much more competitive follow the below advice.
- Drop the Dreadquake in favour of 2 rockets.
- Drop the centaurs down to 4 strong, add the banner of swiftness. Run them 2X2, I have found them at 3 wide to be cumbersome with the large 50mm bases.
- With the saved points invest more gear into your characters. You should have the talisman of preservation/enchanted shield on prophet. Then throw the mask and a basic shield on the bsb.
- If you have the points add another infernal guard to make them 28 strong (30 when you add the prophet/bsb). This is more for aesthetics
Hope that helps

I agree with ToM, but here are a few other suggestions:
Swap the dreadquake for a hellcannon
Drop two bull centaurs for a deathshrieker
If you’re going to have a standard bearer on your bull centaurs, give him a magical banner e.g. +1 leadership, reroll leadership or +1 movement (I can never remember all the names of the magic items. I memorised all the 6th edition high elf magic items and now I can’t fit any more in my head).
Definitely get a ward save on your two main characters!
