Hello fellow followers of chaos! I was always interested in warriors of chaos, but never picked them up. Instead I chose Skaven. But I decided to find out what I could do with army builder in 500 pts. This is what I came up with -
Sorcerer of Chaos: 121 pts.
- Chaos Steed, MOT.
Core: 133 pts.
Marauder horsemen: 133 pts.
-Light armor, shield, flails, Standard, Musician, MON.
Special: 245 pts.
Chaos knights: 245 pts.
- Standard, Lance.
Total: 499 pts.
So, what do you think? Not enough men?
I had the choice of making the knights MON or give them lances. I chose attack power. Bad choice?
Coms and/or Crits are welcomed and thankful.
With magic being what it is, I'd rather put the sorcerer on a disc, instead of letting him ride with the knights (because he WILL eat them eventually)
Even at 500 points, lance's on knights arn't that good, enscroled str5 is better because you have the str 5 all round's, and for your marauder horsemen, you wan't throwing axes for stand and shoot, other then that it looks decent
Thank you for the advice, here is my revised list:
Sorcerer of Chaos: 125 pts.
- Disk of Tzeentch, MOT.
Core: 125 pts.
5x Marauder horsemen: 125 pts.
-Light armor, shield, flails, throwing axes, MON.
Special: 250 pts.
5x Chaos knights: 250 pts.
- Standard, MON.
Total: 500 pts.
How does it look now? Pretty snazzy if you ask me!
With less than 133 pts core, your army is no longer legally playable - also, you don't want shields and light armor on your marauder cavs, or they loose fast cav.
I'd go for
Sorcer, Disc, Mot -125
5x Marauder Horsemen, Light Armor, Flails, javelins, musician, standard, MoK - 133 pts
5x Chaos Knights Standard, Musician, MoS - 240 pts
Musicians are a must imho, with as little guys as you'll have on the field, don't underestimate the quick reform to avoid being flanked, and get into charge positions.
He only needs 125pts in core to be legal at 500pts
You're wizard only knows 1 spell. The problem with this is that you'll have to throw ALL your powerdice into it to get it off. Your opponent will kknow you only have 1 spell so will eb putting all his dispel dice into getting rid of it. So, with putting all your powerdicce into one spell comes with it the risks of exploding. which is a bad thing for a General.
How about dropping the Mark and picking up a spell familiar, or ditching the disc and giving him Tzeentch AND a spell familiar!
Good Idea! I forgot that he'll only have 1 spell...
How about one that looks like this?
Sorcerer of Chaos: 121 pts.
- Chaos steed, Spell familiar.
Looks good to me. A steed gives you better protection than a disc too.
Just noticed the Mark of slaanesh on those Knights. I'd ditch it. You already cause fear so don;t really need the immune to fear. With a re-roll to panic as well slaanesh just isn't needed. That's 10pts to spend on other goodies. Like one of the cheap magic standards or another Marauder horsemen.
