ok let me start off by saying that my list is 4-0 so far. but there was two games were i got REALLY lucky versus a beastman list (the routed 1 turn after the minotaur reached my line-i had him surounded but he was spanking my army hard), and also i got lucky versus sisters of sigmar on the rout test.

so here is my list
Krustees Clown College

Carnival master (krustee)
daemonic vigour, scabby hide
sword, dagger, heavy armour
battle mage skill

Brute (baaahlman -pestigor musician)-supafly died

great weapon (we have agreed on an axe/sword for crit purposes)


Brute(Mr.Teeny)
great weapon
+1 WS (from xp)

tainted one (bloaty)
hammer, mace
nurgle gift that gives +1 W,+1T, -1 Mv
special abilty that lets him get back up from a knockdown, ligthning reflexes

tainted one (pustulio)
sword, dagger
nurgles rot
+1 I (from xp)
lightning reflexes, sword master, immune to fear,


3x bretheren (Rhot, ?, ?)
2x axe , dagger
+1 WS (xp)

1x brethren (?)
hammer, dagger

1x bretren (fhesteer)
1x sword dagger
+1Ws (xp)

1x brethren (baaaa'aaaal -converted pestigor)
1x axe dagger

3x nurglings
1x plaguebearer

what should i get rid of/change?
are bows worth it (if so how many?)?, the lack of range is annoying me
or should i get the plaguecart? and start hiring more daemons
have 127 GC in the bank right now

I've never played carnival of chaos, but they seme pretty good. Thier power really lies in the deamons, so load up on them, and the plague cart isnt too bad. Invest in that if you can.

well a redshirt friend of mine offered to order me one for xmas, and is just waiting to get some cash together for it

i find the plaguebearers and nurglings dont really live up to the points cost so far (they tend to vanish for good on me 1-3 roll instead of 1-2, and if i rout they vanish on a failed ld test). I would like to try a second plaguebearer just for kick. so a plague cart may help that. i kind of wish the chaos warbands could hire a chaos warrior/champion as their special big uber killy guy

my record so far is 5-3-1(draw due to time).

i have to ask any advice on beating beastman (especially the minotaur???)

cheers

Beastmans are strong but your brutes will kick the cows hard. good choice 2h on them, with a critical hit you can smash a minotaur and i think you will have more models,so just sneak around the mino and try to charge him with 2 people with good weapons. hit first die later.

i was considering sending the brutes, +pustulio (immune to fear , reroll to hit w sword, asf, and nurgles rot), to take down his big guy. now when playing the faster warbands (beastmen/skaven) should i line up henchmen in front then try to get him on the countercharge?

if anyone has any good general tactics for mordheim let me know

i use to play with the sacrifical ones with spears ready to intercept a charge and a 2 line of hero / archer. You can help spearmans if they don't kill. you can use the parry and use the nurglings as sacrifical victims. brute with 2h will not strike first this is the main problem.. but with 2ws hope you survive!
