I have made a few changes from my previous list (I don't know if a mod will want to merge the threads or not...) and feel it is much faster and harder hitting, as well as diverse.
It will have 5 dispell dice and two components.
Exalted Champion with Mark of Khorne, Chaos Armour, hand weapon, shield and barded warhorse
12 Chosen Warriors with Chaos Armour, shield, two hand weapons, Mark of Khorne
4 Knights with Chaos Armour, shield, hand weapon, barded warhorse, Banner of Rage, Mark of Khorne
1 Chariot with 2 Warriors with Halberds
15 Marauders with hand weapon, light armour and shields
The idea is that I would advance with the Knights (joined by the EC) and Chariot with the hounds in front of them to protect them somewhat as expendable units. The Chosen Warriors and the marauders in support would follow up to clean up anything that remains. I am a fan of the list due to the diversity of the units, its relative flexibility. I know the Knights and the Chosen Warriors will be able to get enough CR through sheer violence and killing, but do the marauders need a banner or anything? I figure they'll provide some weight to anything that the warriors cannot hack their way through (as they have 24 attacks across their six model front)
Drop the Banner of Rage. None of the Chaos banners are really worth their points i think. Also loose the Standard Bearer. Use the points to add 5 more Marauders, a Khornate Spawn, and possibly another Knight, or give the existing ones Champ and Music. Do that for the Warriors too, and FC for the 20 marauders.
Yah I guess I was nervous of them losing their Frenzy by being beaten - but I guess its more point-efficient to put all the eggs in one basket and just hope they won't be beaten haha. I won't have the miniatures to have 20 Marauders (I only have 16) but I will give them the FC. Why is it worth it to give the Warriors a musician and champ, and not a standard? Just not point efficient? I guess hopefully anything they're fighting, the Marauders will be there too providing the +1 for the standard. I'd like 15 chosen warriors, but am stingy and don't want to buy just the 3 for 16.00 CDN.
Do you need to pay for both the Standard Bearer upgrade and the Magic Banner itself?
I say gibe the Warriors Champ and Music, as they help in game generally without any possibly huge drawback. If the enemy gets their standard then it gives them 100 VicPts.
Maybe proxy those extra 3 Marauders (use other models to represent them in the back ranks) Spare Warriors maybe?
If you want to take a magic banner then you must but a Standard Bearer yes.
I dropped the banner and the light armour from the Marauders (I doubt anyone will be stupid enough to shoot at them, so 5+ in hand to hand with their hand weapons should be adequate) and gave the Marauders a musician and standard and the Chosen Warriors a musician and Champion. It comes to 2 pts shy of 1000, which is damn near perfect (although I wish I could give my Exalted Champion something special, but oh well)
With just 5+ in Combat, you may aswell not have a save, on the same basis my skellies dont have a save. Drop shields, get the Champ something maybe??
Here is the latest revision:
Exalted Champion with Mark of Khorne, Chaos Armour, hand weapon, Gaze of the Gods, shield and barded warhorse
12 Chosen Warriors with Chaos Armour, shield, two hand weapons, musician, Mark of Khorne
4 Knights with Chaos Armour, shield, hand weapon, barded warhorse, Mark of Khorne
1 Chariot with 2 Warriors with Halberds
15 Marauders with hand weapon, standard and musician
Hmm, see now looking at that, the Marauders arent being used to their full potential for nStatic Res. The banner is a risk for them so id say drop that. And with just 2 Ranks now remaining for them, to be honesti think you would be better off loosing them alltogether, unless you really want to keep them in.
Id say look at a Khornate Spawn, some Furies, or maybe Maru Cav with Flails and Music instead.
