Hey guys, I re-discovered the boxed set i bought a while ago and decided it'd be cool to start the game (having left it before!).
I don't really like the models that come with the set, so I was thinking and looking over the rulebook (version 5+) online and settled on a chaos team.
I know it says that chaos are hard for a beginner, but I'm not a complete novice. I have never played a game on the board, but I was a member of fumbbl.com (where you play it online) for a few months at one point and wasn't too bad.
So as a student and having limited resources, I think i've decided (although i haven't got anything yet and can be swayed!) to purchase a box of beastmen this week with a view to just cut out the weapons and maybe use my bits box for a couple of conversions.
I already own a 1200 point chaos army so I can borrow chaos warrios from that I guess.
the one burning question I have is how star players factor into building your team. Do you just hire them for that one game, or is the cost of them to keep them like when you buy a new beastman? It just seems like some of them are alot of gold for one game.
I was specifically looking at Grashnak Blackhoof, who i'd realyl like to represent with the beastman lord model (i know he has an awe, but the model is lovely and it means that I could use him in my chaos horde with the beastmen (who i was thinking of putting on square bases rather than round).
so yeah, is this a good idea or should I reconsider the team i start with? I deally I want to use a all plastic team as its easier to construst and convert, as well as paint (or at least I prefer plastic). And can I buy Grashnak Blackhoof outright or do I have to save and hire him everygame?

okay, i see how the rules kinda work now...
Thats fair enough in a way, but takes a little away from the games with it being that you can't add a star player to be your captain or something. Maybe i'm formulating a house rule of when starting the team you can have 1 star player who cannot gain any abilities or something
