Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok so I wanted to make a list utilizing as many special characters as I could, while still remaining competitive! My biggest worries is I do not have a whole lot of units or any cavalry... Chaos Knights lately have made me feel like they are overrated. But anyways, check it out! -
Exalted Hero - 199
Talisman of Preservation
Favour of the Gods
Chaos Warriors (16 Total, Ran as 6x3 w/ Vilitch and the Battle Standard Bearer) - 338
Mark of Tzeentch
*Blessings from the WarShrines will go here. Exalted w/ favour of the gods for pure awesomeness. Also there to make challenges for Vilitch.
Chaos Warriors (17 Total, Ran as 6x3 w/ Festus) - 378
Mark of Nurgle
Banner of Rage
*This unit is where the real heat is pumped out. It will support the former warrior unit, and will hit hard as a truck. With Festus, it will get extremely brutal. Rage for more attacks, and marked Nurgle for fluff purposes.
Trolls (Will run 3x2 w/ Throgg) - 225
*Will also back up the main defensive warrior unit. This unit should really make a mess of things.
Chaos Marauders (30 Total - w/ Wulfrik) - 188
Mark of Khorne
*Wulfrik's unit. Formation will be determined when it comes time to place them, depending on the situation I'm in. Standard for combat resolution.
Warhounds x 5
Warhounds x 5
Hellcannon x 2
Warshrine x 2 - 260
*These will most likely screen whatever I feel needs screened. The buffs will be placed upon the Favour of the Gods unit.
TOTAL - 2998
I have no special. Magic phase should be pretty decent, Vilitch and Festus of course. No infernal puppet and no dispel scroll of course scares me as well. I own two hellcannons which are getting commissioned paint work, so I really want a competitive list that utilizes both.
What do you guys think?

Looks as good as you're going to get it. To get points for Dogs you could reduce the size of Wulfriks unit. It doesn't need to be a horde as he'll be doing rear/flank charges so you could just go with a unit of 30 or even fewer.
Hmm if I did that then I'd have about 50-60 points or so. Would yeild two dog units.
Dummy drops are pretty handy, especially for a fairly small force like this. You could get away without them obviously but I just find it easier with a few drops before my main units. If it was me, I'd take some hounds but this is you
What do you think about swapping out the Blasted, and getting the wailing banner?
You can shave some points off of your shrines. MoT on them looks awesome but in all reality that is a hefty 20 points for a +1 ward save. They are already T6 with a 4+/4++ and I rarely see them being targeted anyways. Who wants to take those down for a measly 130-150 VPs? Knocking those down gives you a third puppy unit and 10 points to play with towards more puppies or what have you.
And I like wailing banner on the warriors. That is a getting rid of two EotG rolls are going to be nice for getting you better shrine rolls.
Dropping the flame banner can shave more points too. Or you could put a nicer banner on them. I currently want to try out a 19 man block with an AoD BSB, MoT, sword/board and armor piercing banner. Just some ideas for ya.

I like the list, I would consider putting Festus with Nurgle Warriors if only for fluff reasons, also I would try to get about 3 units of 5 hounds
As an extension, how would you go about making an army to contain all the special characters, I think it needs to be 12600 ish points minimum
Would you make the list by breaking it down into 3 or 4 smaller armies or just go for an epic huge list
Would a list made like this be competitive?
Okay guys thank you for the awesome responses. Loved all of your ideas so I made some changes to the OP.
Changed to wailing banner on the shield unit. Changed the halberd unit to nurgle, gave them the banner of rage. Made the marauder unit a little smaller so I could add two units of puppies. Also dropped MoT on the shrines for the points for the required changes as well.
What say ye now?
***The 12k + list would be competitive since WoC has one of the most balanced books in the game and there really isn't any garbage choices. But good luck finding a game that size!
The list is solid. I think Wulfrik is meh but it is a special character list.
Making warriors into a chosen type of unit is something I never thought of before though. It makes me think of trying it out with a marauder horde. I had a mirror match where the other guy got box cars when he shocked his horde with a shrine. I will tell you what... 50 horded MoK GW marauders with 4+ ward and stubborn is a tidal wave of death that I wish upon nobody. And I thought my chosen unit was badass...
Well yeah that would be cool but sadly is not possible unless you throw in at least 2 heroes into the unit with one of them being a BSB with a magic banner.
Since the BSB has to bring the Wailing, he cannot bring the favour of the gods as well. So another hero would have to. Maybe it'd be worth it though?
