Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok guys my local games workshop store is having a 1500 warhammer fantasy tournament this weekend and this is the list I came up with.
Wulfrik the Wanderer
2 dispel scrolls
24 Marauders of Chaos
*Wulfrik joins this unit
10 Warriors of Chaos
6 Chaos Knights
6 Chaos Knights
Banner of Rage
Tell me what you guys think and any strategies you guys have for this army. I am a very bad strategist.

I would drop the 2nd unit of knights, and get marauder horsemen with flails and MoK.
And at least another 2 units of warhounds.
You don't have anything to block the LoS of your units, so they will get baited easily.
Or: drop the first unit of knights, and change the mark on the 2nd unit to Nurgle.
-1 to hit with frenzy, is better then just frenzy.
how to use hound screens:
Make sure that the turn before your charge, your knights have LoS to their target. But make sure that the hounds still block the knights their charge path.
In your next turn, when your knights "can'' charge, declare a charge with your hounds first, then with the Knights. Move your HOUNDS FIRST, then the knights. This will make the knights charge legal.
Declare a charge with your hounds at a different unit, because you'll want to max on the knights in combat.
I'm not sure if marauders can carry a magical banner tho..
I would also increase the warriors to 12 or 15, but not much more. Maybe even drop their magic banner, or give them the warbanner.
ok yeah I was wrong about putting a magical banner on the marauders so I took it off and was able to qsqueeze in another unit of warhounds. I also dont under stand why I dont have any units to screen my marked units. 3 units of warhounds is enough. Right?
You have 4 frenzied units and 3 screen units.
Personally I like to have more screens than frenzied, because they get shot, but you have to be careful that you don't get in your own way.
If you drop 1 unit of knights (the MoK ones) and the warriors, you can get a unit of chosen and a unit of MoK marauder horsemen. I would prefer that, in the end its you who has to play it, so really go with what you like (for what ever reason; fluff, models, real money, etc)
