Greetings big7samuraifan...


Sounds like fun and a lot of troops! What Mark do you want to go with before we offer any thoughts...

you shouldn't stay with undivided unless you want to. You should pick a mark the one you think suit you best!

Well, I want the warriors to enjoy battle and be fearless and well dicsiplined...

Which Chaos god would that fit into?

Khorne will make them better in combat and fearless, but they can be jerked around by fast cavalry, but thats why you have Maurader Horsemen.

slaanesh is very nice. they will not run away from enemy fire or from fear cuasung enemies, also pretty cheap points wise

Slaanesh is a nice choice, making you immune to psychology...very handy. Not only that, but if you go Slaanesh, it would be worthwhile to look into going magic heavy. As everyone knows, the Slaanesh lore is rather nice. For the Slaanesh player, that is.

Blocks of Chaos Warriors can indeed work, despite what many people say. They're very expensive, but they do the trick when used well. It is true that Marauders make much, much better candidates for combat resolution and numbers, but since you have all those Warriors you might as well use them. I do assume by "Chaos Knights on foot" you mean Chaos Warriors.

So, by all means go Slaanesh. It's a relatively cheap mark to give your troops and characters, but also effective to no end. The Slaanesh magic lore is top of the line, so consider getting a couple of level 2 Sorcerers of Slaanesh.

The only other things I might suggest getting would be some Warhounds and some Chosen Knights of Slaanesh. Nasty nasty nasty....

By the way, it might help to figure out what youre actual army is going to look like if we know what point size you're going for at the moment.

2000 points is generally considered a good size for Fantasy, so maybe you should start there? If that's what you want, I'm sure we could help you make a list using the models you've listed in your first post.

Slaanesh is a great army for fluff. Lots of Sexy stuff. But it is a hard army to master well (I find). They rely alot on movement and spells.

I think undivided is a good idea for beginners. You can learn the best aspects of each mark and then grow from there.

But a while back, Khorne warriors were voted the best warriors to use.

Mhmm, I remember that actually MarcoPollo...as a matter of fact, I think I even voted for the Khorne Warriors...or maybe it was Slaanesh.

In any event, Khorne Warriors are hands down the best at dealing out death, no question, and as such are probably the best investment for the points. Slaanesh Warriors aren't bad themselves, however, but don't match the sheer killiness of a unit of Chosen Khorne Warriors.

Any particular reason you don't like the Blood God? Just curious...
