We're starting to kick start AoS again at our LFGS as it's not been played for a long time. To get things going we're doing a tourney using the contents of a start collecting box each, and will have some ready made armies for people to use if they want to test AoS before buying. I used to play Vampire Counts in fantasy and this type of army still appeals to me, so I've grabbed the Skeleton box and will be using that as a basis for a 1750k list. I've only played a couple of AoS games when it first came out, but never since (regrettably sold my AoS/Fantasy armies!).
So the list I want to aim for is below, this obvious uses models from the start collecting box so these will have to stay in the list for now, however, the rest i'll happily take advice on . I tend to prefer melee over magic (I play world eaters in 40k lol!) granted this probably won't be massively competitive, but i'm not really in it for that right now. Mostly friendlies and the odd local tourney.
Allegiance - Grand host of Nagash
Mannfred (part of the start collecting box)
Necromancer - Grave sand timeglass. Decrepify
15 Grave Guard with Great Wight Blades
40 Skeletons (10 from the Start collecting box)
5 Hexwraiths - (start collecting)
2 Morghast Archai
So that's my 1750k however i have 40 points spare. . I thinking of the Archai keeping up with Manfried for the main hammer blow and the battlelines to take up the centre of the board. Necro is there for support, hexwraiths to go hunting back field foes. So what do people think? What would work better? Any advice appreciated before i part with more hard earned cash!
Also what would be people's suggestions to increase this to 2k points once my local groups gets going?
