Having just finnished my chaos marines i decided to return to an old favourite, marauders. Over the next 6 to 9 months i will be collecting a marauder horde ready for next years GT. The following is of coarse the army list and soon I will open up a thread in project logs.

I intended this list to truly capture the spirit of a marauder horde and there will not be a single chaos warrior in it (the chariots will be manned by marauders and even the chosen will be heavily converted marauders). So what does everybody think.


Lords

If you don't have an issue with special characters get Crom. He's amazing in this kind of list. I'd also consider using the archaon's horde list from SoC. Drop the chosen warriors and give your BSB the banner of the gods. Though you have numbers you need some magic. Either get a caddy or, if you want power too, two Lv2's with 2 scrolls and the power familiar will do ya right.

Illegal list, you can NOT have less than 10 Chaos Warriors, chosen or not

Wow, that's an amazing amount of painting and modelling to do!

I would definitely get at least one sorc with 2 dispell scrolls. Personally, I like to play with 2x lvl 2 even more.

Because you seem to miss some fast and hard-hitting units (besides the chariots) I would solidify your core of Marauders by either using the Banner of the Gods, or by using Crom (giving all Marauders the Mark of Chaos Undivided).

Thanks for reminding me about crom, i dont know why i didnt think of him in the first place.

I have made the apropriate changes to the list, thanks for all the suggestions guys. now are there any problems with the new list or does there need to be further alterations

If my recollection is right, no characters with a mark other than Undivided may be used in Croms army. Thus your Knights have become redundant.

no it says that units with a mark other than undivided are moved to special and chosen are moved to rare:)

So Chosen Khorne Knights are rare not special!

I've done something similar with my Chaos army - here's a sample of my Khorne Knights:

From a list perspective the only obvious omission I can see is a musician for the marauder cavalry but its not entirely necessary if they have th MoCU (I'd still take one though!)

Those look awesome, what did you use for the horse is that perchance an ellyrion reaver steed

Its one of the Chaos steed heads from the Knight of Chaos boxed set.

complete parts list:

chaos steed head
silver helm horse body
chaos rider legs (classic) although empire knight legs work just as well and fit much better
marauder body, left arm and pauldrons
beastman right arm (for the cool choppy axe)
chaos warrior head and shield (which isn't attached in the picture obviously)

I've done a couple of chariots along the same lines but they're not painted.

Get HW&S for you infantry blocks instead of flails, your job is to grind down the opposition. Also I'd drop the knights and swap the normal chariots for beastman ones (convert them to look like marauders, they suit better than the tank-like CW ones). Give the Marauder horsemen flails and drop the throwing axes and shields, keep them cheap, and get more of them. Some Furies wouldn't go amiss either, you've got the rare slot free.
