Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im new to the game and just began buildign an army so me and a few friends from college can play together. i put together this list so far and need help picking stuff out and wanted to know how this list looked and what i should change. i would apreciate any help u guys can give me.
Aspiring champion (or exalted if its worth it any sugestions?) -82 pts
shield (or great weapon and a talisman of preotection ward 6+)
any suggestions on special or magic weapons or anythgin else to improve him??
and do u think i should join him up to a unit for protection with the "watch out sir" rule??
level 1 (do u think i need level two? at 1k pts?) -85 pts
thinking lore of fire any suggestions?
should i get a dispell scroll or no at this pt level?
5 knights - 205pts
16 warriors - 240pts
shield (or shoudl i go with extra weapons?)
full command for free cause of archeons horde
10 flayerkin - 154pts
scouts with skirmish and 2 attacks and killign blow
champion for the added leadership
(i wanted these guys for mobility of skirshers and scouts so i can take out cannons and magicians then to flank with do i need this many? or should i cut them down since they are 14 pts a piece??)
Now i have an aditional 234 pts here to spend still
im guessing to use another 50 points for magic items for the champion or dispell scrolls so im left with about 184 pts. i obviously need more core.... should i get another 5 knights to use seperatly <work the points around a little to do this) or marauders and/or marauder horsemen?? or maybe soem sort of marauder and spawn combo or marauder or spawn or chariot combo??
i really need help here any suggestiosn on ANYTHING will be helpful thanks agian!!

don't give ou the special rules of the units for no reason, it's against the forum's rules.
Never go for knight untill at least 1500, they are uneffective for what they cost.
Always take out some marauders to play, they give you numbers, and decent stats as well.
You seem every lost and confused about what you want, and if you don't mind I'll make this post short by reshaping your list, then ask any questions you like ^_^
Exalted Champion 132 pts
Shield, Armour Of Damnation
Sorcerer Of Chaos 135 pts
2 Dispell Scrolls
16 Chaos Warriors 256 pts
25 Marauders 175 pts
Light Armour, Shield
15 Marauders 95 pts
5 Warhnouds 30 pts
5 Warhounds 30 pts
10 flayer Kin 140 pts
so u dont think i should use knights? evceryone i have talked to keeps telling me that since im using chaos i HAVE to use them. they do cost a ton of points. but now that i think of it, they seem like overkill compared to the opponents ill be facing at only 1000 pts. is there any reason that u inclkuded the warhounds? what tactics would i encorporate them in? take them at very weakly armed opponents? and then use the warriors for the more heavily armed and armored? and thank u for answering me. i know it can be frustrating answering newbie questions.
any other list suggestions ould be appreciated
I would suggest knights. People say they cost to much cuz of chosen status but its still the same without it. It is still alot of points but i'de say its def. worth it.
Selling Dwarf Battalion - Empire + Chaos Army Book - SM Codex - 40k stuff
I didn't say they were bad, just not too great at 1000 pts.
The warhounds are to screen your more fragile units from shooting, or arrasse skirmishers with thier mouvement 7.
Worst case scenario, they can serve as panic causing flankers, and thier US 10 (anything on a cavalry base as US 2) will remove ranks to boot!
what would u consider fragile units? the flayerkin cause of armor? or costly units like my warrriors?
this may sound stupid but do i need to have the peopel acutally holding halberds? how do i do this? or can i just "say" they are halberds in their hands? and do i need to take the shields off if im nto suign them?? or can i leave them on for style??

i spent some time rebuilding and painting and this is my new list.
Critique me please since im almost doen paintign and pretty sure abotu my list..i know my heros are pretty point heavy for 1k but i plan on makign a move to 1.5k or 2 as soon as my lame ass friends catch up pointwise
Exalted champion in a chariot 120pts and 104pts
Aspiring champion placed inside of the warriors unit 149pts
mark of korne
armor of damnation
16 warriors of khorne 285 pts
7 flayerkin 98pts
5 wolves 30pts
5 wolves 30pts
4 dispell dice
I find it a bad Idea to have a caracter on a chariot, as he'll get cannonballed, and can't join units either.
A caracter on foot and the chariot by itself would be much better. If you want to keep it this way, give him the gaze at least, a word is all you have VS S10 D6 wounds hits.
hmm what would u say to a 1500 pt army with the chariot withotu a hero and the herpo inside a unit of knights? thats what ever one else ive talked to has been saying that didnt liek te chariot and hero combo
