I got my hands on the new book and I am pretty impressed overall. I am kind of interested in running a low body count, hard hitting army.



Chaos Warriors x 15

Chaos Warriors x 15

Chosen x 10 (280)
Mark of Nurgle
Hand Weapons / Shields
Champion w/ Dispel Scroll
Banner of Rage

Chaos Knights x 5 (250)
Mark of Khorne

Chaos Knights x 5 (250)
Mark of Khorne

Chaos Warshrine (130)

Chaos Warshrine (130)

Total: 1290

Leaves me plenty of room to add some leadership. That's where I would like the advice. Should I have my Lord/Heroes on foot with the Chosen? The Warshrines will be marching along with the Warshrines to get additional bonuses out of them.

Should I go heavy on the magic maybe? Without any real range, I might want to beef up on some sorcerers and use them like artillery for example.

If you have the book you should have realized you can't take hounds as your only core (they don't count towards the minimum amount). So right now you need 3 more core choices.

Right, you need some big bunchs of marauders/warriors/horsemen, i'd go heavy magic with Vilitch and 2 lvl 1 mark of tzeench sorcerors, maybe if you play in a tourney give one 2 scrolls and the other black tongue, pretty pretty nasty item.

Hmmm, not sure how I missed that note about the Warhounds. lame.

Does a 4th level Tzeench Sorcerer Lord sound like a good idea? Then maybe a Nurgle Sorcerer and some cheap heroes for a bit more melee?

I'll adjuts the list and get it legal in a bit.

Edit; What do people think of the Mark of Tzeench for the Chosen? It seems like a pretty solid way to go defensively. With their good armor save and a back up 6+ ward, I think that they'll deney easy kills a bit better.

i thik a 6+ ward is a bit of a waste on its own

it comes in useful with the eye of the gods chart, but that is down to luck

Nurgle would be better in most cases for protection against shooting. Tzeentch is much better if they take the blasted standard.

For characters, I would recommend Valkia. She works well with chosen and the warchrines, and is excellent at hunting those pesky warmachines and missle troops that will give you fits. A scroll caddy or two, and a BSB to keep your infantry from running. Extra points should go towards making your marauders worth using. Whether that involves MoN and shields/LA or MoK and flails/GWs is your call.

Maybe add one of the sorcerer that i use:

Level 2 sorcer with:
items: power familiar, book of secret
Gifts: Conjoined homunculus

This guy has 3 spells, 2 in mark and 1 in either lore of fire/shadow/death.
he produces 4 power dices, 1 dispel dice, gets +1 to all casting and can add +D3 to a roll that didnt roll high enough.

this means you can cast a 11+ spell is quite possible on 2 dices...
with +1 and +D3.

only drawback is; miscast is suecide due to book of secrets.
supidity next round when using the +D3.

so far his done quite well, his LD has prevented him from letting stupidity get him.
his a level 2 sorcerer that produces quite hellish potent spells.

You can use the same setup on a level 4, but the risk's are high, with him producing 6 powerdices, having 5 spells to go from. quite the sneaky devil.

Maybe even invest in case of a lord in the magic item that gives +1 to all mages within 3 inches... that would be quite devesating.

(6 power dices, +2 to all casting rolls, with an additional +D3 to a spell)

I'd rather not use the book of secrets. Getting a miscast that way will end up really foul real soon :p

No it won't, with the Infernal Puppet in play you'll roll the insta-gib result, and the worst result then is letting your opponent get a free spell.

Thanks for the input guys. After looking at it a bit I am going to have to mess around with the list quite a bit. I really love the Chosen and all but they are too expensive unless I want to run tons of Marauders or something to balance out my numbers issues.

I will update thge list shortly.
