View Full Version : Chaos Warriors/Marauders

What size units aer good of these? My only experience prior to my Slaaneshi Chaos army that I'm starting to work on right now are Orcs and Goblins and Skaven.

Obviously I don't need 30-40 Chaos Warriors or Marauders.

Or is there a link to a Chaos unit info site or something similar?

i'd say 15-20 warriors or 25 marauders, though I don't play chaos so...

15-20 warriors sounds right, 25 marauders is a good size too

go to the 'Chamber of the everchosen' boards unsure of the address though

Depends how you use them. 12 chaos warriors of Khorne with extra hand weapons are a very scary unit (or even ten). Marauders can be used in units of 20 to good effect. Especially if you have a character to go with them. Then it doesn't matter if the enemy shoots few, you still have a decent close combat unit.

Marauders win combats by static Combat resolution (ranks, standard, outnumber) they need to be big enough to do that so units of 20+

Warriors are a bit too expensive to waste points on trying to max static CR so go with smaller units 10-15 with equipment to maximize their offense (halberds or great weapons.)

Warriors to be fielded in 6's or 7's for maximum frontage

Marauders in blocks of 25 for maximum ranks and room for casualties

I go with 12 chosen warriors, 15-18 regular warriors, 20-25 marauders. I find thes units work fairly well, especially when paired off with Marauders horse, hounds, and chaos knights.

As others have said, 25 marauders are nice. If points need tweaking across your list, as mine has in the past, I find 20 marauders are a solid compromise of points and effectiveness.

Warriors... it depends on what you're using them for. I tend to use 12 in a 6x2 setup. They're expensive, and so I try and balance it out where I can. But I like warriors 6-wide instead of the traditional 5 that a lot of ranked infantry uses.

i like big blocks of marauders as they're very good for their poins value. don't forget you can take beast herds as well...
