    2000 Points Chaos Army - Is it competitive?

    Hello everyone, I looked a bit through the Warriors of Chaos book and decided to rally an army. This is what I came up with;

    Heroes;

    Festus, The Leechlord 185pts

    Chaos Sorcerer 180;
    Level 2, MoT, Book of Secrets, Spell Familiar

    Exalted Chaos Champion 305;
    Filth Mace, The Bronze Armour of Zhrakk, Bloodcurdling Roar, MoN, Shield and mounted on a chariot.

    Core;

    18 Warriors of Slaneesh 346;
    Full COmmand, MoS, Add. Hand Weapon and Shields.

    5 Marauder Horsemen 86
    Flails, Light Armor, Musician

    5 Marauder Horsemen 86
    Flails, Light Armor, Musician

    5 Chaos Hounds 30

    5 Chaos Hounds 30

    5 Chaos Hounds 30

    Special;

    Chariot of Nurgle 150

    10 Chosen of Nurgle 300;
    Full Command +50, Soporific Musk+20, MoN, Halberds and Shields.

    5 Chaos Knights of Khorne 240
    Musician, MoK


    Thoughts behind the army list;

    Festus is one big bad ass thus he needs protection and will join the chosen, I gave
    the unit champ the soporific musk to aid the 1die pursuit. Shields to make them
    harder to be killed by shooting and to use against any threatening charge.
    Halberdsfor when they decide to trample something.

    The Sorceror will join the warriors and will be the general. I don't really like this idea
    myself as I don't really thrust sorcerors. The warriors were given the MoS so thet they
    won't flee easily.

    The Exalted champ, too risky to be the general. Thought that a terror causing chariot
    would be a nice feature to the army. Also since on a chariot you get the 360 LoS I
    thought the Bloodcurdling Roar would be a good magic missile.

    The marauder horsemen are lone mage hunters and warmachine crew munchers. In
    extreeme situations they can serve as meat shields together with the hounds, so that
    they can protect the other important units...especially the masters of carnage...the
    Chaos Knigths.

    The second chariot is to accompany the Exalted Champion so they can hit harder.



    So that is what came to my mind. I would greatly appreciate feedback.


    Thanks in advance,

    Greenpowah.

    I'm sorry, Chosen champions can't take gifts of chaos. Instead give the champ FotG, which allows you to re-roll the EotG result. Yay!

    The list looks nice. I like your idea with the terrorcausing chariot, I think it could work.

    You don't need musician on your MoK knights, they are Frenzied! Drop it and use the points to give Horsemen MoS.

    IMO Chosen are not worth the points. It's up to you but I'd drop them for another unit of warriors. Still fun with the random EotG result though!

    Thanks for telling me about the gift, I don't know how I did that mistake. I changed my army list according to your advice and as soon as i have the models I'll see if its good.

    I really like the terror causing chariot it feels wicked !

    Thanks again mate.

    I'd highly consider marking your second chariot slaanesh instead of nurgle, 1/3 the points and the only thing I'm really worried about with a chariot is having a perfect charge lined up and failing a fear or terror test. Also the -1 bs from shooting attacks won't help you much as nothing with str7 or higher requires a BS based to-hit roll.

    Fotg allows you to add or subtract 1 to your roll on EotG
