    They're pretty good, cause D6+1 S5 impact hits, have 4 WS 5 S5 and 4 WS 3 S4 attacks. 3+ armor save on the chariot. Marks make them better, Slaanesh is a no brainer, Khorne can be awesome as its +2A WS5 S5 & +2A WS3 S4 for Frenzy.

    putting characters in chariots is okay, a popular choice is making them a scroll buggy, put a lvl 1 unmarked (or marked if you want) in a chariot w 2 scrolls. not bad in combat, try to avoid challenges if possible.

    The issue with chariots is that S7 will annihilate them, and they can't march, so they are M7 until they charge, which means they don't keep up with cavalry very well. with footsloggers, they are more effective. plus you always want tog et the charge, otherwise you're wasting the impact hits.

    cheers mate, do you not think that a pure cavalry and chariot army equipped with the proper gifts and powers, magic etc. would be able to do alright in battles? i was thinking of making it similar to a celtic army which was for a time chariots ad cavalry before infantry were later introduced

    It could be good, but you don't want to keep chariots in prolonged combats.

    If you're considering a Celtic Theme, then perhaps something like this would help:

    Exalted Hero, BSB, Chaos Runesword, MoN, Shield, Chariot

    Sorcerer, Scroll, Scroll, Chariot

    Sorcerer, Scroll, Scroll, Chariot

    15x Chaos Warriors, Shields, Command, Mark of Slaanesh, Rapturous Standard (your Anvil)

    5x Marauder horsemen, MoK, Flails, Light Armor

    5x Marauder horsemen, MoK, Flails, Light Armor

    5x Marauder horsemen, MoK, Flails, Light Armor

    5x Warhounds

    5x Warhounds

    Chariot, MoS

    Chariot, MoS

    Chariot, MoS

    2x Spawn, MoS

    1989 points.

    Don't know how effective it would be, but I think these 6 chariots are better than the 8 possible choices.

    the tricky bit us maneuvering your anvil and chariots to make a single devastating turn of charges, with Marauders and dogs screaming down the flanks. Spawn are largely defensive.

    Here's my chariot army. Extremely effective army that is fun to play.

    WoC chariots aren't bad in prolonged combat really, you have enough high strength attacks to get combat rez from

    Giant would work okay, especially if the list was actually 2250...

    MArk him Slaanesh for ASF goodness...

    If you want to bring him in 2K, drop the spawn and a unit of marauder horsemen, should be enough...

    I made a list that kinda works like that, got a good mix of everything:

    Hero: Exalted Hero, BSB, MoS, Chaos Runesword, Steed of Slaanesh, Shield - 215

    Hero: Sorcerer, Scroll x 2, Chariot - 235

    Hero: Sorcerer, Scroll x 2, Chariot - 235

    Core: 11 x Warriors, MoS, Shield, Standard, Rapturous Standard - 218
    Core: 11 x Warriors, MoK, Shield, Great Weapons, Standard, Warbanner - 265
    Core: 10 x Marauders, Flails, MoS - 60
    Core: 10 x Marauders, Flails, MoS - 60
    Core: 5 x Warhounds - xx

    Special: 5 x Knights, MoN, Standard, Banner of Rage - 285

    Rare: Giant, MoS - 265
    Rare: 2 x Spawn, MoS - 130

    Total: 1998
