I've just picked up the bloodbound half of the starter set on eBay! I'm not sure which way I want to take this army.
My "main" army is an Ironjawz army (can you see a theme on the armies I pick...), so I was looking for something with a few more options (the Ironjawz have like 7 warscrolls).
My original idea was that I would keep it purely bloodbound (Mortal Khorne), but I quite like the idea of having a combination Khorne list with bloodbound and daemons in it.
I'm aiming for 1000 points to start with so I can play some smaller games at club. Here is what I am thinking.

I really like the Mighty Lord of Khorne model, and the bloodstoker and bloodsecrator just seem like auto-includes. Hoping the bloodreavers are able to put out quite a bit of hurt before they fall over when anyone even so much as looked at them funny!
The Blood Warrior models are just amazing, and I love them, and I want to take as many of them as possible. They seem good on the table, trying to figure out which weapon option would be best, although I think the starter set comes with the gorefists? I think the goreaxes might put out more consistent damage though.
Skull reapers are awesome, and I didnt have the points for wrathmongers (which I really really REALLY like).
I definitely want skullreapers, wrathmongers and Blood Warriors in the 2k list. What sort of battalions have people managed to get some mileage out of? Dark Feast has been mentioned, which seems to be a sensible option if you want to take large numbers of Bloodreavers. The bloodbound warband looks pretty good on paper.
How do people get on with the short ranges of some of the command abilities on units like the Aspiring Deathbringer?
