Nearly everyone at the shop near my house plays an evil army and nearly every evil player is chaos. To make it a little less general, hers a few types of chaos armies. There mostly is Tzeench armies with something like four different sorcerer characters and 17 power dice and then most of the rest are armies mad up of warriors marauders Knights and a pwnge hero. No matter what i do i am always beaten. (BY THE WAY 2000 PTS)

Well, try and get a couple of their lists, and then post your current list in the army list section for High elves. I would be happy to comment on your army, and give you tips on how to tailor it to attack the chaos armies you are having problems with.

Last time I played against Chaos I managed a win simply (and luckily) by taking a Battle Standard Bearer with the Battle Banner. Expensive and risky but it turned around a combat I had against a unit of Chaos Warriors from me losing by 1 to them losing by 4. They failed their break test and I ran them down and this made a big difference.
I also find the Banner of Arcane Protection in Dragon Princes useful against the Daemon armies.
Use mages with lore of metal..it decimates them if they are heavy on armored units.
It's though. With Tzeentch they will usually kill your magic phase. Go light on magic and concentrade on shooting and combat. The problem here is that in combat you will still have to deal with a formitable combat force since it's still chaos. So my only advice would be load up on chariots. They are fairly cheap and fast. They can charge into combat on turn 2 and it gives your opponents too many targets to deal with in the magic phase. I would actually consider taking 8 chariots. by turn 2 you should still have at least 5 left. No matter what his magic does to you. Then just do combined charges and you should be taking out stuff left and right. I would normally not take that much of one thing but you need a solution to take care of 17 PD.
Normally I suggest eagles for mage hunting but against chaos mages the eagles aren't that great. So I suggest to take multiple RTB's and get a commander with a reaver bow. This should force your opponents to keep their wizards in units. And they should be able to force some panic checks which Tzeentch is very vunrable against.
lore of metal looks perfect for this one guys army. It seems like all he uses is warriors and knights.
And Yes there are three different chaos guys that I have played that in 2000 points have upwards of 13 power dice so thanks for the suggestions (the only problem is that now i have to buy 7 chariots) :shifty:
proxie them for a bit. Then when you win with the proxies for a while they will change their lists and you can move on to a more ballanced list before buying all the chariots.
