I have two relics I can add I believe. Going more thematic than hyper competitive, but wouldn't mind not being steamrolled.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Hard to judge, because power level is relative to what you are up against. But it looks good for what you are going for, based on what I can see. A few notes:

-You are missing an artifact. 1 for free, plus 1 for each battalion means you have 3. Mark of the Destroyer on a Skullgrinder is pretty sweet.

-Banner of Rage is somewhat redundant in Skullfiend, given that you will be RR hits of 1 off enemy heroes anyways. And if the enemy heroes are dead... well things are probably going pretty well for you anyways! Additionally, the bloodsecrator will already be a massive target, a protective artifact will probably prove more useful.

-Did you pick a prayer for your Slaughterpriest?

Still trying to be more polite. If you catch me being toxic please call me on it.

Enjoying narrative before matched play, crusading on a path to glory!

I wasn't sure what artifacts to bring or what spell would be best, honestly. Figured I'd try different things out as I played. Good point on the banner, too! Blood would probably be better.

'Secrator already has that nice 3+ save and can generally be camped in cover, so I would go for Bloodforged Armor to give some protection from mortal wounds.

The go-to prayer is generally Killing Frenzy. You can never go wrong picking Killing Frenzy. But Bronzed Flesh, Blood Sacrifice, or Resanguination would also work well for you.

Awesome! I'll give all that a go. I really appreciate the feedback. I have VERY little AoS experience, so what would be things to watch out for that would be a major struggle for this list?

Do you know what armies you are likely to be up against?

Regardless, I would say the biggest danger to playing Khorne is going up against a player that knows how to play against Khorne well. Someone who knows how to properly prioritize targets and when to sacrifice their own units can dismantle a Khorne army piece by piece. That said your relatively decentralized army build will make counter-play more difficult.

I would advise more than other armies to really pay attention to buff ranges; the bloodsecrator and wrathmonger are notable but prayers and command abilities are also important. Due to Khorne's offense-heavy approach it is particularly easy to get units outside buff range via charges and pile-ins.

Remember that you are a kill army; even in an objective game you are trying to 'trade up' by killing more than you lose in the process. Getting the opponent on the defense by pushing forward onto their objectives is Khorne's best way to hold their own. Just remember that you DO have to hold them; tabling an enemy does not grant victory!
