Hey i was wondering what everone thinks of my current army fluff, i currenlty have an average sized warband with a drednaught and alead by a warlord psyker. my fluff is as follows *mhmhmhmhmhm* My infamous warband led by the Powerful Psyker Warmaster Posarius The Lustful who is a patron of both Slaanesh and Tzeentch, the motto of my warband is "Only through change can their be perfection" While my ground forces are not currently the best I have a powerful chaos fleet, under the banner of Warmaster Posarius my Chaos force ventures forth from the eye of terror to deal devastating damage to the forces of the corpse-god. Also my army would not be shy about recruitong Ork and other mercenaries for their coherent advantages (such as strength for Orks). the end I have alot of fluff to work on but I think I have a nice start.

hm.... both Slaanseh and Tzeentch? can one do that? they are not enemies like Nurgle to Tzeentch or Khorne to Slaanesh. however, none of the Chaos Gods get along together well. Plus i dont see anyone being able to choose two gods. its seems that you would worship choas in all its glory (Undivided) or choose a patron. Slaanesh would be so attractive to them they wouldnt care for Tzeentch. or they are enraptured by Tzeentch's magically abilities, due to their Lord being a Psyker. And including Orks? sounds like your going for a little bit of everything.
An original idea though, and i commend you for it.
Can Chaos sorceror's have more than one patron? I thought you had to choose Nurgle, Tzeentch or Slaanesh as your patron and be loyal to them. And surely the worship of change implies an acknowledgement that perfection is impossible, your army's philosophy seems rather self defeating to me.
Revenge is a dish best served with mayonnaise and those little cheesy things on sticks.

The point of the Army is a newer pholosophie for a new breed of chaos worshippers. plus Slaanesh and Tzeentch arent all that opposed to each other and they have common enemies in both Khorne and Nurgle who find faults in both slaanesh and tzeentch for different reasons. plus yea your right I am trying to incorporate many different things in my army because i have strong attraction to alot of the different races and playing styles and their units. Also one thing about the Worshippers of the ruinus powers is that they can interpret the ways of the chaos gods however suits them best. and I would not take full advantage of both powers i would use certain properties of both.

I think that if you want a little bit of everything, play Word Bearers. Slaanesh and Tzeentch just wouldnt do that. They would not approve of one of thier patrons also worshipping another god. Its either all of nothing, Undivided or a specific patron.
The point is that it would be an uneasy alliance between Slaaensh and Tzeentch while my Warmaster Posarius Believes mainly in slaanesh there are other higher-ups in my chain of command which believe in tzeentch just as Abbadon brought together all the different believers and legions Posarius and his lieutenants would forge an alliance ebtween them for the their own reasons remember it is not totally un-heard of for chaos gods to work together and Tzeentch as a master planner more often than any other individual Chaos god forms alliances to further his own goals. Tzeentch has an exact opposite in Nurgle whod belief in decay and destruction are the opposite of Tzeentch Khorne also disaproves of Tzeentchs methods seeing them as cowardl. Which he also finds in Slaanesh who finds an opponite in Nurgle who is hideous and cares nothing for perfection and regularly destroys it makes him an enemy of Slaanesh who believes in perfection in all things.
Yep i agree but it is creative. Now you could get away with it if you played a word bearer or similar but think about it. If you were a god would you want somone worshiping someone else besides you, I didn't think so. The only other way is if your lord is Abbandon if im not mistaken.

if different guys in your chain of command worshipped different gods, they would have split your group or killed each other off. its just the way Chaos is. despite that Tzeentch and Slaanesh are more similar to each other than to Khorne or Nurgle, they still have greatly differing views. i just dont think that such an army would work. if you want to use all of the daemons, play Word Bearers or Undivided. Chaos gods do not make alliances with one another unless it is all four rallied behind Abaddon (or another Chosen One, such as Horus) on a Black Crusade or another such excursion for domination.
You do realize that it isnt totally unheard of for there to be multiple beliefs in a Chaos army somewhat like chaos undivided worship Chaos as a whole they may hav a greter affinity for a certain God, my army would have a somewhatb similar principle only to the extreme the forces feeling very strongly afiliated with Slaanesh and Tzeentch than the other Gods and they would dislike Khorne and Nurgle because it is the way of the respective gods that they have pledged an alliance to. these arent stupid insane fanatics like most chaos, unlike them these warriors, while yes pledging allegiance to the ruinus powers of choas have remained free enough to choose their own paths. Also Abbadon isnt the only powerful figure after the Horus Heresy to have gained the allegiance of all four gods these smaller allegiances are often forged due to either neccesity or for personal gain. Usually these alliances are broken not too long after there creation (relatively to the lives of the gods therefore this could mean anything from between a few decades or a few thousand years). Plus as i have stated previously i would not gain full benefit from either side i would take certain advantages and disadvanteges from both sides (i would be helped to decide by friends and fellow players so it would be fair).

for one thing i said "Other Chosen Ones" so i did not mention only Abaddon. My vote is still no. i dont like it. i have given my reasons and really have nothing more to say on it. it seems too odd to have only two Chaos Gods included.
But once again i commend you for being creative.
