Since I last posted about NWG and the Anyone But Frank challenge, we've had an update on the format for the tournament. The points limit for this year's event is 1650 points, lower than the standard 1850 tournament limit that most players are used to. This has caused some nerdrage, but I actually like it. NWG is meant to be different from other events and players are encouraged to take something a little out of the ordinary.
I was originally planning around a 2000 point army, which was last year's points limit, but the smaller limit means I have less painting to do, but have had to drop my original idea of taking an allied contingent of Daemons. This army will be part of the warband of Adrak Pleasureseeker, Prince of Slaanesh, one of the main lieutenants of overlord Kharanak the Defiler, Lord of Chaos.
Here's the current draft of my list, subject to change of course.
Adrak Pleasureseeker, Prince of Slaanesh (160 points)
Adrak Pleasureseeker, Chaos Lord with Mark of Slaanesh, Steed of Slaanesh, Sigil of Corruption, a pair of Lightning Claws and Veteran of the Long War.
