marks can be mixed now and almost always are unlike the good old days. it is generally frowned to use special char's unless its a huge game though i would imagine more so for Archaon to...

Archaon is overkill. He isn't bad at all, but he is expensive in an army full of expensive models.

but for what he does, he's very cheap....dropping him by 200 pts AND making him better than before was crazy...

He's pretty good if you're playing a 3000pt army centered around him. You have to make full use of his superb generalship and BSBness in one.

You also have to be agressive with him. Nothing bar the sickest lords has a chance of killing him directly, so just smash him into whatever you need dead. Knights and other units that rely on armour are good meat for the grinder. The only thing you have to watch out for is CR. You can still be run down. On a side note, it's worth mentioning that Archaon may flee as a charge reaction, which often comes as a surprise and thus can be used to bait nasty units.

Just watch out for Lore of Metal (especially on a Slaan with the Banehead), as you'll have to make a lot of 3+ Ward Saves to stay alive (which doesn't sound bad, but if they cast it enough, you're in trouble). Since you play Chaos, it's fairly likely your opponent is going to take Lore of Metal.

Well, in that case, let him him do it and take a Slaan with Lore of Metal and the Banehead. If he fails 1 ward save, you just got like 350 points (2 and he's dead).

He has magic resistance 2, so it's not going to be impossible to cast on him (especially with FM).
