I'm toying around with a few ideas for a Chaos list. I'm looking at either Iron Warriors or Lost and the Damned. There are already a couple of people that play IW in my group however, so while IW is attractive I'm not really sure how interesting a third IW army would be. Plus, every time I try to put together a list I end up making something -very- similar to a friend's...

So, this is what I'm thinking of using at 2000 points for Lost and the Damned. I'd take chunks out of it for smaller games. It's pretty straightforward. The third CSM squad comes from sacrificing my Word Bearer FA slot. If I expect the enemy to come to me, then the Dark Apostle will sidle up to some of the Traitor squads to keep them from running away and the Arch Heretic will join with one of the large Traitor squads to keep them stable. If I'm going to be coming to the enemy, I'll just let the traitors fend for themselves for the most part. I may keep the two ICs back for a turn or two while the CSM squads get into position; Daemonic Speed should allow me to be a little bit behind the CSM squads and still hit at the same time.


The Dark Apostle is a fair deal more expensive than I really suspect he should be. Unfortunately, the Crozius/Demoagogue combo makes it pretty damn hard to keep him cheap. I expect him to end up fairly different from how he looks right now.
