Magnus? In a khornate army? Blasphemy.

Well he is red, he fits right in! lol.

Girlymans rerolls are nuts. He (pretty much) won the game by himself technically, 3 groups of dev's and snipers and tacticals and razorbacks (basically the whole army) re-rolling EVERYTHING was so nuts. Magnus only does re-rolls of 1 to hit and 1s for saves, not nearly as good as re-roll everything but also a lot of magnus's power lies in Close Combat and the Psychic phase. I can see a list like this or similar to it being the standard for space marines now because it was sooooo damn strong. BUT, I think the list does have some weaknesses which I will try to tackle next week when we play again. But with all that said, it was a fun game - It was the first game in about a year that I lost (if you don't count my 2 losses during my tournament), and I'm not going to lie but the "reroll everthing" from girlyman made me a bit salty because without it I think even with the seize and failed charges I would of had a much better chance at winning - even if it was only rerolling 1's I think I would of been fine, but then again the Dice Gods can be cruel so I can't say this as a certainty. But with all that said, it was a good game with tactical errors made by both sides, and extremely good luck on one side (stupid smurfs), shooting armies aren't as bad as people think.

Also as a side note, I think Cheifs army list wasn't calculated properly because the way you make a list is different in 8th than it was in 7th. I think he accidentally got to bring a bit more than he should of because (I think) he forgot to pay for the basic wargear his guys start with (pistols, swords, boltguns, stormbolters on rhinos) - it says on the points cost in the back that basic wargear isn't included in the points and that you have to calculate it, I was even building my lists wrong until I was informed today (I thought my flying demon prince was only 170 points, but apparently you have to pay for the sword HE COMES WITH which is like 60 points, effectively making the models base cost 220 which is much different than what it states at the back). I could be wrong about this but my horde army was slightly smaller than his "elite" army so I think there was something wrong in the points, but again I could be wrong since I didn't really look into it - the army just happened to look a lot bigger than I thought it would.

EDIT: I re-built the Ultra Marine list in battlescribe as best as I could remember, and it seems to be around 2000k points, so I think the list was made correctly and even if it wasn't the points difference wouldn't of been too much.

ya i definetly paid extra points for wargear, like the sniper rifles are all 4 points each or the power swords 4 aswell. Some stuff was free like boltguns on the tacticals or the chainsword on my ancient. I wouldnt call your army a horde though in any way, 62 models isnt really a horde, i had 55 models and agree that i had an elite style army though. I think a horde would have to start at 100 models, but who knows it can vary person to person.
