    What HQ do you use and why?

    I'd like to see what other chaos players are using for their HQ choices, what they deck them out with, and why they do so.

    Personally for me its a Demon Prince, Mark of Slaanesh, and Lash. Good, cheap, simple, irritating.

    I primarily use Lords and Daemon Princes. My main DP has wings and MoK. A few of the lords I use are TDA/Daemon weapon, LC pair/MoS or MoK, TDA/MoN/Daemon weapon. I use sorcerers occasionally, but I find the weapon options available to the lords more worthwhile than the sorcerer's powers. I prefer cheap effective lords over expensive powerful ones. That being said, I have the models for Abbadon, Khârn and Typhus, though I have yet to try the latter two in this codex.

    I also use a Daemon Prince as my first choice for HQ.

    I use 2 configurations mostly, the first one is a DP with wings and Wind of Chaos for a cheap and effective DP. He's a there to support troops mainly and act as a counter charge character.

    The second configuration I use is not as cheap but it's quite effective. I give my DP wing, the Mark of Tzeentch, Bolt of Change and Warptime. I use him as a support for my troops but also he's a tank killer. There's nothing like a Monstruous creature to open up a tank. In Apocalypse games I use 2 of those to destroy Baneblades and they are quite effective... also a 4+ invul. save on such a character is quite good.

    For Apocalypse games I almost always take Abaddon. There's no match against him, he killed Gazkull a couple in one on one combat of times already and all sort of Space Marine Champions, Captains and Lords. He's worth his points but he is for game of 3000 pts and more.

    I take Lords in most of my lists, typically a Khornate with lightning claws...sometimes on a Juggernaut and occasionally even with Bloodfeeder. My old-school Kai Gunner sees plenty of action, too. Otherwise, I bring two winged Daemon Princes, either Khornate or with Wind of Chaos. I love the Princes but the new LoS rules are brutal for our fragile (for monstrous creatures) DPs.

    I like sorcerers, they have a fair bit of flexibility and depending on spells are not too expensive.

    The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.

    Chaos Sorc, mainly fluff, though a giant dude in terminator armour on a disc looks damn awesome as a model..

    How does that work out for you? I'd always thought the blissgiver to be highly situational given it's low strength, so I'm hesitant to try it.

    Lord with Jumppack/Twin Lightning Claws melta bombs and MoS. Only playing less than 1000point games against marines currently so he is designed to go character hunting and picking off combat squads. Horribly vulnerable to concentrated fire and krak misslies though so in bigger battles he will have a nice big squad of Raptors backing him up.

    On the way is a Lord on foot (no idea how that will work) and 2 Daemon Princes both with MoS and Warptime though I may experiment with various MoT combinations. Princes wont be used together in the same battle and wont be given Lash. Ive a winged Sorcerer in the pipeline that can be used for that if I ever do decide to use it.
