OK, this is something I have been wondering over the past few days. How effective is a chaos army that it built on a large base of marauders but backed up with smaller elements of the rest of the army?
And, what are their models like? Any good? If not, any ideas on cheap alternatives?
It actually works quite well. The marauder infantry provides you with nice, chap static combat res, and your characters do the killing. And the marauder horsemen provide a nice flank support (and are still comparatively cheap)
Round this up with some hard-hitters (Knights, Minotaurs, Ogres etc. pick what you like best) and some flyers and your army is a veritable threat
Your opponent will have to choose whether to concentrate on the hard-hitters, leaving your marauders intact (with all passive boni) or try to decimate your infantry blocks, but this will get your hard-hitters at full strength into CC
It ain't easy bein' green... :-)
