So this is my first foray into AoS, I haven't played since 8th. The main reason I chose Nighthaunt is spooky ghosts.

Guardian of Souls
Shademist
Knight of Shrouds on ghost pony
Headman's Judgement
Ruler of the Spirit Host
General
Lord Executioner

10 Grimghast Reapers
6 Spirit Hosts
3 Spirit Hosts
3 Spirit Hosts

Now I know the hoard strat is strong, but I love the idea of just making a quagmire on all of the objectives.

Any advise is appreciated.

Spirit Hosts are ok, but I think going all in on them is going to be a struggle. Dropping a few for a few Rasps would help in my opinion, even if not going full horde.

Also consider swapping the Executioner for a Spirit Torment.

I can drop 6 of the spirit hosts and the lord and add 20 rasps and a spirit and that brings me up to 940

Maybe just have 10 rasps, and youd have exactly enough for a unit of Hexwraiths?

I've heard Hexwraiths are very underwhelming. I could always take a second Guardian of Souls or a 4 man of Chainghasts as a shield for the Spirit Torment.

They do give your army some speed it is currently lacking though.

I wouldn't take a second Guardian at 1k, they cant both use Spectral Lure the same turn and you already have plenty of points on characters.

Chainghasts are decent though.

The real point is to try and get some value out of that missing 60pts basically.

I am tempted to use Pendant of the Fell Wind just to boost all my units movement. Boosting hordes and reapers seems legit at lower points costs.

The go to artefact usually is the lantern that boosts the models you return.

I completly forgot about that.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
So I also made a 2k list as a what to work towards. I chose 2 spirits so one could roll with the main army and one can roll with the assault ambush force. The battle line is pretty self explanatory with the spirit hosts as Lady O's bodyguard bubble. Tell me what you think.
