Ok, as some of you might have noticed I'm browsing the new SM codex know thy enemies so you can beat them. And NO I'm not planing to go to the Smurf side of the power armour wearing murderers. But I couldn't help notice some differences between the sorcerers and librarians.
-Both cost the same amounts of points although the CSM has better stats and an inv. save but the librarian gets 2 free powers and a hood.
-the Sorcerors have to pay for all the psy powers.
-The upgrade options I feel are better for the Sorceror but the shooting power selection is better for the librarian.(if we discount lash) Why?
First we have the smite power vrs doom bolt
Doom bolt has better range but has 1 less shot and ap.
and Vortex of Doom which is an ap 1 blast short range tho, but free.
-CSM win on the specialized power selection Lash, GoC and warptime vrs. gate of infinity and null zone
Ok this is in no way a complete list, so if other chaos players could add. Greatly apriciated. Thanks.
BTW: I voted CSM Sorceror as I am a 1k sons player and love gift of chaos power. and lash. But I do think the librarians are looking intresting.

Since the Librarian has such dismal stats compared to the sorcerer, he really does pay for his powers. I think the sorcerer has more potential as it can still hold it's own in combat.

I'm a 1K sons player too and I love my warptime and winds of chaos. But I really dislike both psychic hood and null zone (since I have based my army around invulnerable saves). I have to see what the outcome of a battle will be, but at the moment I would not be too happy to play a librarian...
But 5 (w/ disc) warptime forcewep attacks are still awesome.. =D
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!

Don't give the enemy a moment to consider how badly they are being beaten.

I was wondering if you still can take a lone librarian as an HQ.

ive had my warptime terminator sorceror hit a crusade squad led by an emperors champion and butcher them all with 2 wounds left.
no loyalist librarian can claim that.
How Did This Get Here I Am Not Good With Computer
The libby can butcher power armour good now look at the avenger power wind of chaos without brakes and free, but i feel the sorcerer is still in the lead just, they really need there own hood or equivalant.. though.
Sorceror and thats it.
Can you kill entire hordes of units with a librarian... well yes but nowhere near as easy.
Warptime and Winds of Chaos just means you can take down hordes of anything and i dont think their librarian can cast 2 spells a turn but he sure as hell cant be given DS which can make your sorcery a really tough cookie and he can also be given marks good old marks with the extra toughness or better invulnerable.
Not really in depth but we all know sorceror lolz at librarian
