This army is going to do a lot of ambushing to making good use of flanks. Most of the units are raiders (skirmishers) and move fairly fast to make up for their lack of ranged combat.
Feedback is appreciated.

Besides your minotaurs and shaggoth, nothing is really hard hitting. I've never really played against small beast herds, but I feel if your enemy is ready for it he'll be able to beat your smaller herds with static res (unless you're able to get a rear or flank). Also you know you scatter where you come in if you fail a leadership test right? These small herds would die if they front a ranked enemy.
In my opinion i think you should combine the 4 herds into 2.
12gor 8 ungor or somewhere around there. They are more effective in case they wiff, or ambush in an unexpected place. Also you might want to bring your bestigor unit up to 15 instead of 10, but these are just my opinions. I'd like to play against you with my hordes of chaos list and see what happens. :)

i think smaller groups are more maneuverable, and with many groups i am able to attack from many directions while my bestigors/minotaurs/chariots and some others attack from the front... as for the 10 -15 bestigors... i could take out 1 beast herd or 2 units of war hounds of chaos.

Oh dear....
Firts off....khazrak,big no in my opinion.
Special characters should stay in the book.
But as he is,fine no problems.

Your minotaurs are illegal,and need great weapons instead.
+2 strength is always better than +1 attack
Unless your using loaded dice or against t2 things with no greater than a 6+ save.

The shaggoth can easily be replaced by more spawn and a second bray shaman.

I sugguest buying the beasts of chaos book.

Aside from those few points,the list is fine.

Just to explain what theunwantedbeing is saying ;) :

Minos must have the same mark as the general, or no mark at all.

....and I agree with him on every point.

alright. I can't get any more shamans without getting rid of one of the characters, so instead i removed shagg gave tzeentch to the wargor. Took away tzeentch from minotaurs, added a 2 spawns of chaos, took away musician from bestigor group and added another group of 3 minotaurs
