I would like to start epic in chaos. It seems there is only one thing to buy related to chaos in the online store of GW. Is there anymore?

There is only the chaos infantry box. However most vehicles for black legion can be done with marine vehicles. A bit of green stuff or just a paint job should do fine. Reading this might help a bit on that

Lost and the Damned list is a bit more difficult. Best bet would be chaos orks website. Also I've used DRM to supplant infantry and Kreytonian Ketzali (http://www.darkrealmminiatures.co.uk/store/product.php?productid=154&cat=8&page=1) for mutants along with the beastmen.

For Greater Daemons / Daemon Princes, try the Warmaster section of the GW online store (http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=List_Models&code=301507&orignav=300808). Otherwise you proxy with Imperial stuff or look at the 2nd hand market: eBay (http://toys.listings.ebay.co.uk/Warhammer_Epic-40-000_W0QQfclZ1QQfromZ1883QQsacatZ56364QQsocmdZListi ngItemListQQsspagenameZmeQ3afQ3acat) or ChaosOrc (http://www.chaosorc.com/index.php?cPath=83_40_69) being good places to start.

Especially since the old Chaos vehicles really look like hell compared to the new ones. I have piles of the old LRs and Rhinos and I am now looking to convert some of the newer Marine vehicles.

Another option is to find old plastic LRs and Rhinos on eBay. They look like Rogue Trader era vehicles, are easy to convert and make your Chaos army look like an older marine force

Okay, cool. I'm getting really excited! Thanks for the links. I have a few questions still though, how big are the infantry, titans, and vehicles??? I have never seen an epic model in person but I really like the idea of it (plus it seems much cheaper than 40K, though I'll still play a ton).

The scale is 6mm. Though some of the Chaos models (marines especially) might be closer to 8mm. I have an older scale comparison pic with some painted ultramarines.

eBay is a great place to look for Epic models.

Honestly, the hardest thing to find is other local players.

Wow, they are small. I shouldn't have much of a problem because I have some good friends that would play if I showed them the models.

I have decided that I will only be playing BFG.
