b) Warriors of chaos are elite infantry. Profiles and equipment dictate this. It's not my opinion.
c) toys? I think with marks, gifts, eotg, three types of elite infantry, and three magic lores, they are very unique
d) I will concede that this is mostly a matter of opinion, but it doesn't change their status as elite infantry.
I very much would like to field warriors as core but the fact is "it's always been that way" is notan argument with any weight.
