Welcome to Librarium Online!
Recently, I've been thinking a lot about what kind of WoC list I'd like to field, and a couple of them have gone through the thought process. Here's what I have so far:
Chaos Warriors - 2,500 points:
Core - 1,111 points:
50 Chaos Marauders, Great Weapons, Mark of Khorne, Musician
3 x 5 Chaos Warhounds
18 Chaos Warriors, Full Command, Halberds, Mark of Khorne, Standard of Discipline [BSB and General go here]
19 Chaos Warriors, Full Command, Halberds, Mark of Khorne, Banner of Eternal Flame [Sorcerer goes here]
Special - 270 points:
6 Chaos Trolls
Rare - 410 points:
2 x Hellcannon
Heroes - 329 points:
Chaos Sorcerer, Dispel Scroll, Charmed Shield [Lore of Fire]
Exalted Hero, BSB, Halberd, Mark of Tzeentch, Stream of Corruption, Talisman of Preservation
Lords - 380 points:
Sorcerer Lord, Armor of Destiny, Infernal Puppet, L4 Wizard, Third Eye of Tzeentch [Lore of Shadows]
Grand Total - 2,500 points
Nothing fancy here - just trying to stuff as much WoC goodness as I can get my mitts on into one list. The Standard of Discipline + BSB + General unit should stick close to the Trolls, to keep them pointed in the right direction. Hellcannons make excellent flank guards and can actually provide me with shooting, should I feel I need it. The Trolls deal with tin cans like the best of 'em, the other unit of Warriors conquers flaming pretty easily, and the Marauders are their usual "point, click, destroy" selves. A bit of Lore of Fire (should I need a magic missile to pop chaff), and plenty of Lore of Shadows (best Lore in the game, IMO) support these blocks.
So... what do you think? Do you like the list as it is? Am I better off ditching one of the Warrior blocks and the Trolls for a Chosen-star and a Warshrine? Should I try to make room for Knights? Comments welcome.

The list looks fantastic, not much I could really suggest to change, maybe just drop enchanted shield off your sorcerer in favor of something different, and give your sorcerer lord charmed shield, it's only 5 points, but it's quite good.
Yeah, you're right - I'll probably get more mileage out of a Charmed Shield than the Enchanted one in the long run. Making that switch. What do you think I should do with the leftover points, then?
If you could scrounge up extra points, maybe stream of c. on your exalted?
Looks excellent, a very strong list. You could play around with the magic lores to change it up a bit.

History of this army

Great army, nothing more any one could suggest, except play it often and get to know it
More at 11: 00? But I want my news now!
Thanks for the comments, guys. I'm definitely open to playing around with the Lores, I've heard good things about Heavens from people here. I think I'll go out on a bit of a limb and trim the Standard-Bearer from the unit of Marauders as well as swap the Enchanted Shield for the Charmed Shield on my Scroll caddy in order to stuff Stream of Corruption on my BSB. What say you regarding this change?
Why take Fire on the Level one? Fire is pretty mediocre and while the Sig spell can be cool a Level 1 will need to use a lot of dice to cast it. Give him Death so he can snipe enemy characters or low LD monsters (like Stonehorn and Stegadons)
It's mostly because of the signature spell. I've not gotten much use out of Spirit Leech when I've used it, and this spell can help me pop regenerators as well as soften up light infantry (besides, I'll have Pit of Shades to deal with monsters more often than not).
Fire is pretty good choice for low level casters I think, since Fireball is very good at picking off lone monsters [many of which have regen.] and can be done at a greater distance.
On a Sorcerer Lord then Death would be my go-to Lore, but for level 1 Fire or Shadow [BoS] is pretty solid.
