Hey all! Here's just an idea I came up with when looking at how horde armies work on a larger table. Essentially cover the board with units and then use fast elements to harass/flank. So I took this for CW as they look so cool!

Just an idea at the moment. Nothing I'd collect yet. 2000pts:

Exalted Champion: Sword of Might - Enchanted Shield @ 130pts
Exalted Champion: Halberd - Shield - Gaze of The Gods @ 136pts
Sorceror: Lvl 1 - 2 Dispel Scrolls @ 135pts

12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
5 Marauder Horsemen: Flails - Musician @ 81pts
5 Marauder Horsemen: Flails - Musician @ 81pts

6 Furies @ 90pts
4 Screamers @ 132pts
3 Minotaurs: Great Weapons @ 138pts
3 Minotaurs: Great Weapons @ 138pts

Spawn of Tzeentch @ 75pts

You are playing 2000 point games on a 4x4? That's a problem right there in my opinion.

If you really wanted to get alot of chaos warriors, you'd take one character to lead the army and that is it.

You can get 80-100 chaos warriors into 2000 points if you want and still have some support units, I wrote up a list a while back and posted it here.

I'll have a browse.

Sadly all I can play on is 4x4 boards which make games a little less fun.

I mean I play Eldar also and you can imagine how frustrating it is to be so mobile but still have the enemy close on you by turn 3.

Anyways edited the list a little more thinking about getting some heavy hitters in (Ironguts representing oversized CW's). Also something to guard the flanks (Exalted Chariots).

Exalted Champion: Berzerker Sword - Enchanted Shield @ 150pts (On a chariot)
Exalted Champion: Halberd - Shield - Gaze of The Gods @ 136pts (On a chariot)

12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
12 Chaos Warriors: Shields - Standard - Musician @ 198pts
5 Marauder Horsemen: Flails - Musician @ 81pts
Chaos Chariot @ 120pts
Chaos Chariot @ 120pts
---
9 Furies @ 135pts

4 Ironguts: Full Command @ 242pts
4 Ironguts: Full Command @ 242pts

So the 4 units of CW's can cover most of the board and provide a very tough nut to crack on the charge. I have Furies to take out mages/warmachines and I have Marauder Horsemen to distract the enemies touchest unit from charging. Then with the two Exalted Chariots putting people off rolling up my flank I can funnel the enemy into the CW's and hold them until the chariots and ironguts can charge in and win the combat.

sounds good.

on another note, have you ever tried pushing two 4x4 tables together and just playing on a 8x4 surface?

Use the banner of the gods. You'll get charged too often. Take a beast herd and put a wargor with BSB Banner of the gods and grind them down.
