Title: 1750 team tournament

attending a 1750 pts each Team Tournament. I'm a bit unsure what to bring.
Fixed are the two blocks of 30 Bletters with FC and Herald each(one is BSB other is General) AoK on them both and General has Firestorm blade.
My Partner plays VC with a Master Necro lvl.4, Necro lvl.2 ghoul horde, skellie block and 20 Grave Guard Block HW + shield. Hexwraith, Bat Swarms Mortis Engine with tome and some Dogs. Both Necros use lore of Vampires plus he has some bound spells.
My first Idea was to take 5 Crushers, full Command plus Herald on Crusher as a third hard hitter and 2* 5 furies
Now I'm thinking about exchanging the Crusher Block + furies and herald with 6 Fiend's plus 10 Khorne Dogs.
What would you prefer? and why...

I would consider dropping 4 flesh hounds. Keep the 6 fiends, 6 flesh hounds, and add 2 solo bloodcrushers. The 6 fiends give you a powerful combat block that is very fast. The 6 flesh hounds are excellent flankers. The 2 solo crushers are really good assassins.

there are not enough points in rare to add more crushers.
But you'd go for the fiends and dogs instead of crusher's ?

Oh, sorry about that. Well, between the two options you've got listed, I like the 6 fiends and 10 flesh hounds betters.

so I ended up taking 6 fiends plus 8 dogs and Banner of sundering for the BSB to Boost our magic De

I would take the crushers and leave the chaff/redirectors up to your VC ally tell him to take 3 bases of spirit hosts or 2 and 5 Dire Wolves. In the grand scheme of things his units are better chaff then our own.
Crushers will take fire away from his ME and with the preposterous numbers he can bring to bare you should have no problem breaking steadfast. Give them the Icon of Endless war and smash clean through their weakest unit turn about and when the grind begins hammer him from the rear! Crushers are great as Support chargers as High Damage output meets solid resilience to help generate
More combat rez then your ally will bleed (and they WILL bleed it)
Edit: Does your VC ally have any Crypt Horrors? Six will perform far better then 20 GG any day of the week, if you can't afford a horde leave em at home!

Thought so too, at first.
What took me away from the crusher uni was the point's that unit would cost.
they are not that hard to kill an giving away 615 pts if Combat turns the wrong way
is to risky at that point level.
6 Fiends will eat almost as much fire and be a wonderfull flanking unit if we get to fight some Elves. (high ini)

Tourney is done,
we placed second and standard of sundering was a very good choice.
Greetz and thanks for the advice.
