Where can you find the new list if you don't have the WD? Can it be found on a website or something?

Hey what's wrong with you people? Why no one comments? Is this army flawless or such a crap that's not worth a single word?:mad:

Not really a big fan of the list. To make the new chaos lists work I think you really need to take advantage of the slaanesh/khorne marks (especially slaanesh). Right now the LD7 marauders can easily panic etc.

Take advantage of the cheaper knights/warriors as they have superior saves and LD.

I think I would run a Dragon lord with the crown of everlasting conquest (for regen) instead of the golden eye (but I guess that's a personal opinion).

Can't u use a lance instead of a sword of might? Thet would be cheeper and more powerfull.

Also, look into the magical chaos armor for your lord.

Thanks for the replies!

Sadly chaos lord has no lance at his disposal. :( He's got the chaos armour but i was thinking of swaping it for armour of damnation - i've got to think it over i guess.

25 marauders, especially with a lord within 12 inches are not that easy to panic - still it is possible but i hope it wont happen that often. In the fight they are stubborn on ld7 or ld8 (with a character) with a re-roll - this makes them capable of holding nearly anything until my chariot or dragon arrive.

I cant find any use for the warriors. They cost more so they cant grant me a high static CR (unless i take about 20 of them...:rolleyes:), they have only got +1T and +1AS - thats not really to much for the points. Thet cant hit hard as well with only 1A and if they are chosen they cost even more - therefore die first to missle fire and warmachines.

Everlasting conquest is too expensive and won't grant me any ward against shooting (and that's what i REALLY need). Once my lord is in combat (he can hopefully make it even through hail of fire:)) he has to kill anything or... die!:D

I would give the aspiring champion the mark of nurgle instead to make his unit immune to fear. I would also give him a chaos steed for some protection. Concerning the shield I don't know if you can use it. Usually bsbs can't use shields but since it isn't mentioned in the list i don't know. Personally I don't like the hellcannon, I think it costs to much. I agree with most people that it usually kills for more than it costs but the rest of the army get to small to do enough damage to the opponent. It simply gets much harder to get those imortant flank charges. I would put in some chosen knights instead (normal isn't good enough without a character and khorne isn't that good without a lot of screening units). Otherwise the the list looks good and keep the eye of tzeentch.
