Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just started playing Chaos. Do i need a lord in every army or can i use a Chaos Lt. as a my sole HQ choice?
You can use a Lieutenant without having a Lord.
Or a... umm...
I got nothing.
But yeah, you only need one hq choice, if you have the codex( I shall assume you do) then check the double page spread with the hq choices on it, that will tell you what you can take.
If you are just starting out, I recommend a cheap-ish HQ (Points wise) to begin with, try checking out the HQ tactica for ones such as the 'Kai Flyer'. As you move up, Karmoons 'Mr Dandy' is a good one to use (Or perhaps the Chaos Warscythe combo... that thing eats squads.)
But I guess in the end it depends on your personal preferences and what legion you are taking.
Good luck with your chaos army, and remember, we are all here if you need help, when chaos, you never fight alone (Usually because of the large amount of daemons you no doubt have waiting in the warp to back your marines up). ^^

Fenrir: and magic.
Kaiser-: My Little Chaos Marine, Friendship is Heresy?
As our codex is changing fairly soon, be carefully with how you commit financially to your Lord. It'd be a shame to spend squillions of monies on a really nice model only to find that with the next codex you have to take him as a 'display case choice'.
THat said.. definitely enjoy the flexibility of the current lord as much as you can!

Yeah I heard the rumors about that... Is that semi-confirmed or just some blatent rumors? I mean, is there any founding to it? Will our lord be way less customizable?
On the topic, I currently play a sorcerer / lieutenant as my HQ choice will I'm doing the conversion needed to make my Dark Apostle. ( Lord of a Word Bearers' army). It's a good HQ choice to start as it doesnt' cost to much and there is almost no difference in the stats with the lord.
The Chaos Sorcerer / Lieutenant looks are usually pretty good looking and if you get one and later end up using a lord or a Deamon Prince ( Chaos Lord Upgraded to a Deamon Prince that is), you can still use the Sorcerer as a second HQ that doesn't cost too much and can pack a wallop.
Wind of chaos ftw!
You don't NEED a lord but it is a very good piece and it can be as custom made as you want as Karmoon pointed out. Greater Deamons are well, great indeed, but, they tend to cost a lot on the start and are a lot less customizable. ( Am I saying that right? Sorry, my first language isn't english...)
I have seen in numerous places, not just here, that there'll be a plastic kit for the Chaos Lord soon, much the same as the Loyalist Commander box. Hooray! Not just for more plastic bits to ue straight up, but for moe converting possibilities. Plastic is much easier to manipulate than metal, and the bits will assuredly be interchangable with the current kits (unless they change drastically too, but this is unlikely).Nowt wrong with that. I have a Lt model made up that I never use, just have it about to look good. And it'll be even better if anything you do make up is game-legal.Originally Posted by Karmoon
Also, Malaky, I would've assumed your were a native speaker of English, having seen several of your posts. No worries there, man
 Quite how nobody mentioned this before (myself included), but the Lord entry is marked 0-1. This means you can has as few as 0 Lords, and a max of 1. There.
