Blood Sacrifice to Khorne





Hi everyone,
So me and a friend have decided to jump into aos from 40k and i love the look of khorne. I need help creating a first 750 point list to start with and play-test (models arent an issue as we will proxy or borrow from the local club). i dont know where to start or best way to so any help is appreciated!

Get yourself some blood warriors and/or bloodletters, great staples for khorne armies. For characters get a bloodsecrator and a slaughterpriest; you will be using them in every army. An aspiring deathbringer will support mortal khorne infantry well, while a herald will support the daemon side, depending on which you prefer. In a large army you can simply have both, too.

Thanks! With such a small game is it worth squeezing into a battalion? I can fit nicely into gore pilgrims at 750 with 2 slaughterpriests, bloodsecrator, 2 units of 5 blood warriors and a ten man blood reaver squad, but this leaves me with no judgements (which just look amazing)
Will not having judgements matter in a small game? Should i just not take a battalion and use the extra points for more models and killing power?

I wouldn't look into battalions until 1500 points unless you really know what you are doing. You can take or leave judgements; they aren't particularly auto-include save maybe the anti-magic skulls. You won't find yourself at a disadvantage for not including any, regardless.

I vote for Bloodwarriors as battleline, though Flesh Hounds are pretty awesome too.

With Khorne it pays to go all or mostly either Daemons or Mortals with the way the keywords interact. The Bloodsecrator and Wrathmongers work on all Khorne units so those are great to get I think. Slaughterpriests are so super useful, good to have 1 for sure.

Then if you like to stick with mortals maybe go with the 2x5 Bloodwarriors for starting battleline, add in Skarr Bloodwrath because he's AWESOME and a Khorgorath for punch.

Or go with 2x5 Flesh Hounds and Karanak (who can summon another 5 Hounds for free!) to start up the Daemonic side of things.

Start by buying the two starters set and you will have all you need to star your first 1000 pts and build around it after
