Hey people, to make a long story short: I played Undead 15 years ago (or about), discovered girls/handjobs and therefor quit warhammer, but have just started up again, this time with WoC.
I´ve gathered an army, and used the last couple of days to plow through the army book and these forums and have soon updated my brain-database, but what I find hard is to start up a list.
For as much points as 2250 I would love to have:
lvl4 Nurlge sorcerer, with Tendrils, maybe Armour of Morrslieb?, power familiar, book of secrets in a chariot to get him into play to use rot glorious rot, and maybe golden eye of Tz for def? Will this work, will he be targeted too early, will he be able to survive a round of combat, is it too muh points in one model?
(Want the Infernal Puppet, but can give it to someone else).
I got the Khornchar on Jugger model, and it´s fantastic so gotsta to use it! How about with Mok, Axe ofK, Collar ofK and Chaos Runeshield, in a unit with 4 Knights (then with MoK to follow?), how bout that?
Got in all 3 sorcerer models, one for the Nurgle described over, and tought of a level 2 Tz with Infernal Puppet, two level 2 Tz (one with Infernal Puppet), or just put some dispel scrools with them and hide them/place them in footunits. Any (extra) equipment to consider?
I got 10 knights, and would love to use almost all; a unit of four with the Jugger, MoK, a banner and extra weapon/lance?
And a must-have unit with MoN (I love that Nurgle, and alot of ppl play Khorne in Oslo), and (wich)banner, champion, and/or extra weapons?
Got 10 dogs where only 5 are put together, is that enough or should I go 10 for maximum screening?
Got two chariots, and was told I could use one as a warshrine wich I want to do. Any tips on this unit?
Got three Chaos Ogres wich I would like to use for the models, but I´ve noticed the Dragon Ogres a good bit more hardcore, should I invest in these models and use them instead/in addition?
Got to have that fast cav, but so far I only got 4 Maurader Horsemen. That´s it. Need to bolster these, yeh? Kinda want to go Flails and either MoK for one charge killkill probably die/run, or MoS.
That leaves my core, 15 Maruaders (w/ musician banner champion) and 25 Warriors (w/ 2X musician banner champion)
I have my first real match this weekend against Empire, so going to make a list over the next days, so all tips are welcome; equipment, unit size, magical equipment and so on.
Used my Warhammer budget for this month, so not going to buy more models yet, but open for suggestions here too. Of course, the bigger stuff like dragon or giant seems cool, but only four horsemen is to few...
I´m and old guy, I can take most so don´t go easy on me. And no worries, I will at least roll the dice myself ;p Thanks!
Edit: This may not be completely up to the forum rules, sorry for that. Do as you please, and I will follow.

I'll agree with most of what HK said. I'd also reinforce the point that you probably want to mount your Characters, even if they're in units. You get an extra +2 to your armour save and an extra attack in the front rank. Nifty things.
Great, thanks guys, alot of helpful information there! HK: As you can see I´m not completely confident with all the rules yet, but it will work out
I´m sitting down writing the list, and hoping to have it ready for posting tomorrow at the latest, before I play Empire on sunday.
But only one question: I know he´s gonna use a steamtanker, and tbh I´m really not sure how I´m gonna handle it. Any suggestions?
Steam tanks are hard. The most important thing is to NOT LET IT CHARGE, because it will only leave a bloody spot in it's track.
The trick is to get some wounds on it. If you keep wounding it, and get him to 6 he's already getting in trouble. Do any more, and it will just stay still the rest of the game. Also remember you don't get any victory points for it unless you take it out COMPLETELY.
It's smart to weaken it a bit with some magic, and than crush it. All of your attacks automaticaly hit on a steamtank, so think like Knights or Dragon ogres... Or basicly anything with a high str.
Good luck mate And enjoy the army
Well, I´ve tried to put together my first list, please take a look Still got some questions, and a problem with not having mounted sorceres models, but anyway this is my first idea for a 2500p army:
Sorcerer Lord of Nurgle @ 404 Pts
Mark of Nurgle; Magic Level 4; Barding
Armour of Morrslieb
Favour of the Gods
Book of Secrets
Exalted hero of Khorne @ 225 Pts
Mark of Khorne; Shield; Juggernaut
Axe of Khorne
Chaos Sorcerer of Tzeentch @ 181Pts
Mark of Tzeentch; Magic Level 2, Barding
Chaos Sorcerer of Tzeentch @ 191
Mark of Tzeentch, Magic Level 2, Barding
12 Chaos Warriors of Khorne @ 252 Pts.
Mark of Khorne; Additional hand weapon
Standard; Musician; Champion
12 Chaos Warriors of Slaanesh @ 232 Pts.
Mark of Slaanesh; Shield
Standard; Musician; Champion
Banner of Wrath @ 45 Pts.
15 Chaos Mauraders of Khorne @ 125 Pts
Mark of Khorne; Flail;
Standard; Musician; Champion
1 Chaos Chariot of Slaanesh @ 130 Pts.
Mark of Slaanesh
5 Chaos Knigths of Nurgle @ 260 Pts.
Mark of Nurgle;
Banner of Rage @ Pts. 35
5 Chaos Knights of Tzeentch @ 250 Pts.
Mark of Tzeentch;
Blasted Standard @ 40 Pts.
This should come to a total of 2370 points. I´m sure I´ve gotten something wrong, so feel free to point it out ;p Got 130 points, should I take an extra chariot, gifts, magic items (scrolls), 3 Ogres, maybe banner or armour for the mauraders. I´m not sure where to put my sorceress and lord (the exalted goes with knights), and wonder if Glaive of Putrefication works on the steamtank? ;p
Thanks for bearing with me, really appreciate it and looking forward to my battle on sunday!
Edit: May be able to borrow 5 more hounds and 5 Maurader Horsemen, should free some points for them... And maybe give the Mauraders some light armor... Or maybe...
