each unit of knights has a screen of 6 hell hounds, but i dont know how well that works with the khorne mark, this is my first try so any comments would be great

firstly you have to have 4 knights in a unit, so the 3 chosen knights are illegal

looks to me like you've added a bunch of points in somewhere, by my calculations your army comes in at around 1200 points rather than 1992.

Assuming your army counts as a 2000 point army I would suggest the following:

I would increase the size of the knight units to 5 each, you can make one unit chosen if you like, but they will be an instant target.

4 units of 6 warhounds is about perfect, 2 of them can run in front of your knight units, this will help stop them getting shot to pieces, as well as preventing your knights charging off against the first bait unit the opponent dumps in front of the unit.

Next I would take at least 1, maybe 2 blocks of 20 or so marauders for some nice inexpensive static combat resolution, you can put an exalted champion in here for some nice combat punch.

Next I would take 2 units of 5 mounted marauders, give them flails and a musician

Finally some daemons might add a little variety, furies are excellent for the points, as are flesh hounds

You could also add some chariots in there too, mark them khorne for the extra hitting power and the extra dispel dice.

it 4 units of 6 warhounds, with 4 units of 4 normal chaos khorne nights, each knight unit with a champion, muscion and bearer ( thus 5) thats 24 warhounds, and 15 knights, i tried to follow the forum rules about using army builder, but i guess my army builder setup is diffrent from others

No, your Army builder is right...we just didn't see your original post about having 4 units of hounds & knights.

yeah it was just confusingly written is all!

people tend to write army lists like this:

Character - heavy armour, sheild, magical doodads

-231

10 regimenty things - sheilds

-100

some people seperate their army lists into characters and core, special and rare troop types, some dont bother.

you can also write stuff like "4 units of 6 warhounds" that makes it much clearer

your list would look something like:

Exalted champion - Mark of Khorne, Shield, Steed, Sword of might, Armour of damnation

4 chosen knights - mark of khorne, full command

4 units of 5 chaos knights - mark of khorne, full command

10 warhounds

4 units of 6 warhounds

Hellcannon


there's no real need to put down stuff they already come equipped with, the number of crew, or title the units

oh yeah, include champions in the total unit count, it can be confusing if you put 4 knights 1 champion, command models are bought as upgrades to existing models, so your knight unit is 5 strong, one of which is a champion
