I've been thinking about starting a new army (I currently play Black Templars & Tau), and I've been flipping through the Chaos Codex, and I'm interested in finding more about the world bearers. They seem pretty interesting with their chaplain-type character, and their use of demons & such.
I didn't see any army lists on the forum, so that makes me a bit nervous...so I have a few questions that I was hoping someone with more experience in chaos can answer:
Does anyone play this army? Has anyone played against this army?
Is it competative and fun to play at the same time?
What are typical (rough) army lists composed of?
What level of skill does it take to play them?
Thanks in advance for the help.

No, no one plays World Bearers.
People do play WORD Bearers though
I thought long and hard about them as an army, mainly inspired by the "Evil Chaplain" character they have.
Unfortunatly, and mainly because daemons are all metal, I discarded the idea in favour for Slaannesh.
I think the heavy daemonic bent the army has makes it unpopular due to cost. I do think they have a good fluffy background. The idea of a heavily religious chaos army (if that's the right term) is great.
As for on the battlefield, well because your army is heavily daemonic you're going to have to be very careful with your tactics, unless your opponent is deepstriking a great number of units then you're probably going to be outnumbered - badly!
I think, if you've got the money, then they are a great Chapter and if it was not for the cost I would be bearing the banner of the Gods with you!
Word bearers are very cool. Try playing the latest Dawn of War - where you play as Word bearers.
In game terms, the fallen chaplain is pretty cool and having many troop choices is really really quite good.
Even if they're just daemonettes or flamers.
Someone came out with a really really good Word beares list the other day.. but i've forgotten who it was :wacko:
The word bearers in DoW aren't word bearers in anything but name. They're allowed Beserkers.
Word bearers are one of the Legions I'm working towards, but I've not got the ability to run them yet.
Everything I have told you, even this, is a lie.
Hope it helps
It's cool and I enjoyed it because it had some amusing fluff, and it was cool to see the Word Bearers in action.
Eliphas's rant about Chaos undivided is particularly cool, and made me get a real feel for the legion as a whole
I really got the impressio and feel for how wordbearers use and enslave daemones, treating them as inferiors.
What are you going to do? Not use the bezerkers in the game because they don't have it on the tabletop?
Dawn of War is just a game.
Mind you so it 40K.
Also the potential for a daemon bomb is suitable amusing. aAh.imagine.. 9 troops slots worth of daemonettes pouring through a rip in reality.

I'd gladly play Word Eaters, on the other hand. A Chaos Legion that nullifies all special abilities that involve words/speaking, like the WAAAGH!! rule or the Word of the Emperor spell.
I didn't see it say anywhere that Chaos Chaplains gain Litanies of Hate. If I'd known that maybe I'd actually MAKE a Chaplain for my army, it's damn near Word Bearers as it is
The FAQ says more than one person can be a Demagogue in a Word Bearers army, but only a Chaplain can be a Demagogue and only one person can carry the Accursed Crozius 'cause it's a Daemon Weapon. What does it all mean?

Daemon weapons can eaily be read about in the codex.
