Ok, I need some help designing my first lists for Age of Sigmar. A few months ago I painted up some LOVELY old 90s metal Tzeentch Daemons and I've finally got the chance to use them. I know 40k, but haven't yet played any Age of Sigmar. I have a friendly narrative campaign coming up in a month, at various points levels from 500 up to 1500. Here's what some of them look like...





Here's what I've got painted:
- Lord of Change
- Herald of Tzeentch on Disc
- Herald of Tzeentch (on foot)
- Fatemaster on Disc
- Beastman Shaman on a Disc (who could be a Tzaangor Shaman)
- Daemon Prince (with Wings)
- 9 Flamers
- 15-ish Pink Horrors / 20-ish Blue Horrors

And here's what I could realistically get painted in time:
- Magister/Sorcerer/Lord of some description
- 10 Chaos Warriors
- 5 Chaos Knights
- 20 Marauders with Flails and Shields
- 10 Beastmen (which could double as Tzaangors)

Given that everything is old-skool metal models, not only is getting a load more a bit expensive, but I really would like to avoid mixing in too many new plastics.
SO. What can I do. What should/shouldn't I take? What should be kept for summoning and what should I start with? Is it possible to build an army without Tzaangors? And what should I use for Brimstones? Any answers useful!!!

Well you won't be able to build out a big army with just that, but for smaller point ranges you could manage. For any point level would go with the Lord of Change as your general and 10x pink horrors as your first battleline (or the marauders if you don't have enough points). Tzaangors are solid but generally better if you take them in larger sizes, if you are going 10-man I would take the chaos warriors instead. Once you get to larger sizes you will probably need to put them in to fill points, in which case you can add in the tzaangor shaman as well.

Heralds are good, as is the tzeentch daemon prince. Blues you will always want to save for summoning, as well as at least some of the flamers. The foot-herald is not a bad summon either. You can get away with not using brimstones; GW was cool and gave an option for horrors to do MWs when they die instead of summoning for players who lack the models/desire to do so.

Imagine three people with the same set of values but radically different emotional states, each of them believes their position is more valid than the other two, they all post using the same account, and your job is to make it coherent.

Thanks for this. The event will have games at 500, 1000 and 1500pts so nothing too huge, I hope!
