    Chaos Lord 1 4 8/9 3 5/6 5 3/4 8 5/6 9 3+ 4+ 1 413
    Mark of Nurgle; Lord has +1 Wo (in profile) and causes Fear; General; Units within 12" may use General's Leadership; Chaos Armour; Shield
    Gaze of the Gods
    Chaos Runesword +1 WS, +1 At, +1 St [70]
    Daemonic Mount 1 [5o]
    This is a bit disorganized and difficult to read, try to look at it objectively and see if you can figure it all out. Some information is automatic, and can be found in the rulebook, like the general's LD aura ability. These details should already be known to anyone with feedback to offer, and should be exempted from your list. A better way to list the above would be:

    Chaos Lord - 413
    MoN, Shield, Gaze of the Gods, Chaos Runesword, Daemonic Mount, General.

    See how much better it is? Clean it up and I'll galdly comment on the comment

    Lasty, this should be in the Army List section of the Forum, reachable through a link at the top of the HoC main page. I assume a mod will eventually move it there.

    Many things don't work in your army.

    When counting outnumbering for fear, you count all the models that cause fear. The hounds don't, so your lord won't outnumber much.

    Where will your undivided champion go? he cannot join any of the knights, as they have different marks.
    Best Regards,

    Much tidier, thanks Wolf.

    Ok, what Wolf_Pack says applies. I can see what you wanted, but sometimes the rules get in the way of our best intentions. If you want units to go together, it's best to mark them the same in a chaos army, so they can go together. When the outnumbered by fear casuing enemy rule comes into play, only the units that cause fear are counted, leaving you with US 4 and, well, not outnumbering anything. The hounds will only make him part of a bigger (and more awkward) unit, since they won't add to his combat much.

    I assume the Undivided cahmp goes with the Undivided chosen, Wolf, but It's really not a fantastic idea in the first place to load 400+ points into one block. You've got about 800 points loaded into your heroes, which is frankly alot. And no chaos cavalry army is worth its salt without Marauder Horsemen

    I've got... 6 words for you on that last suggestion

    All your eggs in one basket.

    You're talking about putting about 1/4 of your army on one stand, which will beg your opponent to shoot at him. A couple of cannonballs later and the dynamic duo is ashes, and the 200 points he spent on the artillery isn't even done for the battle.

    Warhounds aren't that tough, they'll be toast in seconds. The only reason you can use them disposably is because they're so inexpensive - add a lord and they become worth shooting at.

    Characters in chaos must go in a unit with a mark to match, so the undivided champ can only go with undivided knights/warriors.

    And you won't have outnumberign fear by the end of combat with only a Lord and warhounds attacking and US 4 of fear causers.

    Infact, the lone fear-causing ability will hardly ever come into play.

    I don't think a nurgle cavalry list is likely to do very well in a tournament. You could get an exhalted daemon of nurgle with an additional wound, and minotaurs of nurgle with better armor. I'd leave the rest of your cavalry undivided, cause they are such small expensive units that they are unlikely to outnumber anything, and you pay a lot of points for nothing, essentially. Maybe one marked unit to charge enemy cavalry, but that's it.

    I'd look at Centigors from the Beasts list, and invest in some marauder horsemen to distract bits of the enemy army you don't want to face.

    Or you could just go all chariots like you are, basically. But it is a one-trick army, and if you face much terrain, you could smash yourself up...
