Thanks for the replies guys. I live in North Scottsdale, and game out of GW. Hines, we actually met at the GW Scottsdale tournament a while back, I played the Empire army that you wrecked 1st game haha. Dimitri, thanks for suggesting I get onto this forum.
So as far as which tournaments I am going to, I haven't planned to go to any soon. I am realistically looking at tournaments later in the year because I first need to get much better with my army, and paint it. From what I have seen it looks like a decent amount of them have already filled up as far as sign ups go.
For the list, I thought about a demon prince, but just have not used it yet so I have no clue how to make that work. I get what you mean about the warrior block, I could shift some points and make it 2 units of 18 but that seems so small to me. The death magic idea makes sense for the hell cannon combo. When it comes down to it I need to just play more battles to really drive home fantasy strategies home.
I'm still building and assembling the army at this point but Ive got ogres and empire to practice with if either of you want to get some battles in, I sure would appreciate your guy's time as you both really know the game and subtleties of it.
