2k 8th edition, screaming horrors

Oct 23, 2015
Hi guys,

I've made a list and was wondering what you might think of it. It's an 8th edition list as, so far, we have not started aos yet.

The idea is relatively simple. The strigoi joins the ghouls and so does the bsb. They walk (horde formation) side by side with the horrors (4x2). Behind them is the mortis and the zombies with Manfred. The terrorgheist flies around does it's thing. One of its possible targets is war machines. The small skeleton unit will be placed in front, to catch possible charges.

Tell me what ya think!

Dogs would probably work better than skellies in this situation. Not sure what the wight king is doing as an undead BSB isn't all too important, maybe trade him out for a lore of vampires necro. Doesn't look too bad other than that.

If you don't want to play Sigmar you could try out ninth age. I've been having lots of fun with it:
