Ive recently decided to start fantasy (everyone moved away from 40k and i cant really play myself:eek: ).

Ive been playing some 1k games with dark elves but then i moved along to hordes of chaos. I bought the following list and played 3 games with it, which i lost 2 of due to lack of ranged and manuverability, and one 1 due to both sorcerers having confagation (bye bye 1 unit a turn).

What im really looking for is opinions for tweaking the list a bit ;)

Heroes

Chaos Sorcerer: 120
Sorcerer: level 2 upgrade

Chaos Sorcerer: 120
Sorcerer: level 2 upgrade

Core

Chaos Warriors: 270
15 warriors – hand weapons, shields, musician, standard-bearer
Champion – hand weapon, shield

Chaos Warriors: 270
15 warriors – hand weapons, shields, musician, standard-bearer
Champion – hand weapon, shield

Chaos Marauders: 121
15 Marauders: hand weapons, shields, musician, standard-bearer
Chieftain: hand weapon, shield

Marauder horsemen: 98
7 Marauder horsemen: spears

999

err...yeh...in haste i posted in the wrong section, awesome...

Drop the warriors, my lists used to look like that when I first started, then I got tired of watching 300pts. slowly trudge across the board only to get blasted by a volly gun. I hate expensive infantry. Put those points into a couple units of knights.

I don't know how much you want to change the list, but here are a couple of ideas:

- Drop some of the Warriors, as they are very slow and expensive. Taking one unit of 12 with Shields, Halberds and Command Group might work.

- I'd give the Marauders Light armour, and probably boost them up to 20 or 25.

- I'd also keep the Marauder Horsemen at minimum size, and rather take several units. I also think Flails are a better option that spears. Oh, and a Musician here would be good, as they are only ld7 and will probably be fleeing quite often.

- Chosen Knights are awesome... At 275 pts for 5 with Full Command they are (IMHO) easily the best unit available in a HoC army.

- And one last... Chaos Spawns wonderful. Especially with the Mark of Slaanesh for extra mobility. They can tie up str 3 units almost indefinitely...

Hope that helps you a little. Of course, feel free to completely disregard any or all of my points if they do not match your style of play;)

(And if you PM a mod they'll move the thread for you.)

Mods please move this link as this is what happen before to close the previous forum. (It got cluttered with non battle reports)

Thanks,
