    Chaos Armies

    I recently got a new chaos codex, and I've been wondering, can you use two armies at once? Or have a marked power lord have a army of undivided marked units? If anyone can help, that would be a big help.

    Don't hit that- WWAAGGHH!

    Not quite sure what you mean by two armies, do you mean units with different Marks of Chaos? If so, absolutely. One of the most competitive army builds involves troops with either Khorne or Nurgle marks led by a sorcerer with the Mark of Slaanesh. Or if you want you could always go completely undivided or focus only on one god, it's completely up to you.

    Hi and welcome to Chaos!

    You may use any of the options in the Codex, with no restrictions other than the points and FO chart. This means if you felt the urge you could have a Khornate Daemon Prince accompanied by a Tzeentchian Sorcerer, leading a band of Plaguemarines and Noisemarines, with Obliterators and some unmarked Lesser Daemons!

    For example, alpha legion, and world eaters. Or something of the like.

    You are completely free to go single-legion if you like, or a mixture. Both can be supported by the fluff -- Mercenaries, splinter factions, warbands, etc.

    Yes.

    There are no formal rules for Alpha Legion (yet) but yes, you can build an army with a Chaos Lord (painted as Alpha Legion) and several Marine units (painted as Alpha Legion) with units of Havocs (painted as Alpha Legion), and also have units of Thousand Sons and Sorcerers in the same army.

    They simply must all fit into the single Force Organisation Chart as described in the Codex. (1-2 HQs, 2-6 Troops, etc.)

    Note that whilst there are rules for normal TS units, there are no longer any rules for TS terminators, TS vehicles, etc, however you may wish to include a unit of basic Termis, give them the Mark of Tzeentch, and call them Thousand Sons Termis. They will only have the inv save boost, and not other TS properties like inferno bolts.

    You can give him a Mark of Tzeentch, and call him Thousand Sons. That's your best offer

    There's only one army in Codex: Chaos Space Marines. Mix and match as you like.
