View Full Version : Trying out a chaos list...

13-02-2008, 18:26
Ok this is my first stab a t a Chaos list... I have an idea of what I want this list to look like but the outcome is iffy... I'm trying to get 2K. Don't have the book in front of me either.

Exalted Champ = 236
(barded steed,MOT,staff of sorc)

Asp champ= 80

Asp champ= 80

5 knights = 240

2 x 4 knights = 220

5 hounds=30
5 hounds= 30
10 hounds =60

2 Tuskigor Chariots = 178

9 screamers = 297

So thats 1661pts... I don't know where to go from here now...

Should I add more to my heros and get another unit of knights?

For starters, 9 screamers is a waste of points.

Where do you put your general, he canīt join any knight unit...

Why aspiring champions, they suck big time unless you want a BSB, for only 20 more pts you get +1WS, +1I & +1A.

Some Minotaurs or Dragon Ogres might be useful, some magic would be needed as well, 4PD & 3DD just donīt cut it.

Just a little math.

5 Knights w. Full Command = 5 st5 Attacks + 5 st4 Attacks at 2+ Armor
Cost = 215

5 Chosen Knights = 10 St5 Attacks +5 st4 Attacks at 1+ Armor
Cost = 225

Point is. You'll probably get a better combat result with the chosen + they won't have a champion to get killed or battle standard to get captured. And they get a tougher to boot.

Now put your aspiring champs on steeds to join the other knights to give them more punch, and be sure to give them flails.

Use your mutts in 5 man(bitch) units to screen the knights, so they won't get shot down.

How about getting a cannon?

Get some magic - or dispel ability.

Didn't think chaos knights could "buy" a flails??

Although there is a picture of a chaos knight using one in the first few pages of their army book....

They can't buy flails, though the fighty heroes can.
