T1

He outdrops me and goes first.
He runs almost everything up to the center of the table, except for the 2 Runesons who are actually able to reach my Kairic Acolyte units on the right side, killing them and 3 Pink's.

On my turn, I use a combined 6 with DD to cast Balewind and the Scribes rolls a 2 to cast Spellportal. I then use another combined 6 to get off Daemonrift which crashes into both Runesons doing 10 MW's to one (after being blasted with Bolt + Pink Fire), killing it and 9 to the other Runeson bringing it down to 5. The Nulsidian Icon gave me some trouble however, and Gift of Change was negated on a 5+ so it stuck around a little longer. Scribes runs right and summons 10 Blues, shooting kills a few Vulkites and the Sorc Lord charges into the Runeson to finish it off.

T2
Objective drops dead center, he wins roll off but allows me to take the turn

This time I manage to kill the Battlesmith with Gift to take away the 4+ spell ignore aura. Daemonrift takes a wound off the Runemaster and the Changecaster is just within range to fire off Bolt + Pink Fire + Arcane Bolt to finish him off and then Winds of Chaos kills 3 Hearthguard. I got 11 FP this turn, so I ran the Magister left and summoned 10 Blues to ensure I had most of the board covered for when objectives dropped. Be'lakor kills 4 Vulkites with 1 remaining after BS.



On his T2, I Be'lakor the Hearthguard, however they still make the 5+ roll and make the 10" charge into the Pinks and I completely forgot about Kairos just stopping the charge (although in the end it took more things off his objective which was better). He also rolled the 5+ to allow them to attack, killing 8 of them. Runefather charges Be'lakor on the left and takes him down to 4 while Be'lakor shaves off 4 wounds in retaliation.

0-2 Fyreslayers

end of my T2

T3
Objectives drop top left and bottom right, he wins roll off and gives it to me again.

I auto-dispel and re-cast Spellportal and do 4 MW's to the Runefather (6+ DPR from the terrain saved 2) while the Magister kills the last Vulkite to summon a Chaos Spawn within 3" of the Runefather. Kairos Winds of Chaos' the Hearthguard killing 3-4 more and then he calls the game. All I would need to do is move a few things on the center objective to take the lead while he's stuck fighting through 42 more wounds of Horrors without the double-pile in.

9-2 Tzeentch Major Victory

Overall Thoughts
I don't like to pat myself on the back, but barring forgetting a couple minor things... I would say this was about the most perfect this list has gone. I was sweating for a minute there when both Runesons made a charge, but luckily the shotgun that is Daemonrift was able to take care of that almost on it's own. I'm still somewhat up in the air over it though; it's good in these situations, but later on it's usually too far from any of my wizards\endless spells to get the bonus damage. Against other wizard heavy armies however and it gets to be pretty amazing again. Sometimes though I think I may want Geminids for really stack the debuffs around (not bad damage from them either).

So yeah, I think I'll stick to this as my main Tzeentch list for the foreseeable future. The combination of control, raw MW output (when you actually roll average with RR's 😉) and board coverage from the summons and it works relatively well. That all said, vs any shooting army and it can have problems, but most armies do nowadays. Hope you all enjoyed and as always appreciate feedback\comments.

Thanks for the Batrep mate, always love seeing these!

Totally agree about the Daemonrift and that it gets a bit worse as the wizards disperse, but it's alot NOT a predatory endless spell, which is lovely, so you don't have to worry about it coming back into your face, where as with Geminids you have to really think about that and whilst they are great, they can also really cripple things like those Horrors etc because of their Shooting/Melee profile.

I love the list that you've taken and it's great to see you get a game in with it! I'd love to see more of this list if you ever do more Batreps and can use this one!

Actually, the Daemonrift is predatory but if you're looking through Azyr then it conveniently leaves that part out as well as how far it moves. If I can afford the Daemonrift I'll probably always take it.. but sometimes stacking -2 to hit and wound on a unit and -1 attacks on another is just hard to pass up against certain matchups. I'm not overly worried about them hitting Horrors just because their damage is already abysmal. Daemonrift is easy enough to avoid even if Kairos can't auto-dispel it since I can just ensure I stay 13" away from it.

Normally I try to do 2-3 Batreps a month but with my schedule it's been harder to play games and when I do I generally don't have energy to sit and record notes or take screenshots. Next week I'll probably run the same thing though.. this weekend I'm going to try giving Bonesplitterz or Troggoths a try😅

Haha I was! And this makes a lot of sense. Azyr really is a poor app sometimes! Pink Horrors are still only 200 points when you list build, like come on guys! I see what you're saying about the Geminids, and Also the auto dispell from Kairos is great too.
