Khorne! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
Nurgle! ummmm.... COUGH!
Hey Guys, I'm pondering about making a chaos army, because I just think they look like a hell of a lot of fun to play and paint. I am not a fan of Tzeentch or Slaanesh, but I am having a lot of trouble picking between Khorne and Nurgle. I play orks, so I do want an army that does not require a BAZILLION models to play a real match, and I do want some really powerful units. I love Khorne for its bloodiness and colour scheme, but Nurgle just seems so unique and fun to model and paint with all the rust and goo! WHICH SHOULD I CHOOSE????

Use both, you dont have to pick a specific god.
But, if you want to pick one, the nurgle army is better at shooting
Zerkers only get pistols!
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
As Nhyx suggested why not use both? the CSM codex is geared around multi-god lists. Personally I am all about aesthetics so i'm putting together a Slaanesh only army, but the world (and CSMs) are your oyster.

I third Nurgle, Khorne is good for offense but you want troops that actually survive to make it to combat. Plague mariens are in my opinion the best troop choice in the CSM army. High Toughness, Feel no Pain on top of the usualy marine weapons, armor and attacks/strenght. They have lower I, but don't let that mess you up. They unless you go against alot of power weapons, they can take the first hit and dish it out in return. CSM with IoN is also nice If you want a cheaper alternative to Plague marines, they dont have FnP but the T5 is still pretty good.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE! KILL, MAIM, BURN, KILL, MAIN, BURN.
sry realy wanted to say that, but it's obvious what I recommend.
Kill, maim, burn!
Much cooler than Khorne, and I like the advantages better too.
i play Death Guard and i love it. CSM that are tougher to kill than Necrons and they get back up more frequently! To effectively kill Death Guard your opponent needs to use their AT weapons to ignore the high str and FNP. take out their AT and there is not a whole lot they can do to gaurentee some dead Plague Marines.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
