Bray Shamen and Great Bray Shamen
Chaos Sorcerer and Exalted Sorcerer
I vote for bray shamen ;Y
Sorcerer of Chaos hands down. They get Chaos Armor standard and get access to the Lore of Fire vs. the Brey's access to Lore of Beasts.
As much as i love my beasts, generally I think Fire is a better lore than Beasts, and also the Sorcerers come with Chaos Armour and dont have to buy it from Magic items. No doubt the braystaff is a cool weapon though, if it was a coolness vote I'd go the other way.
I dont know about that.if it was a coolness vote I'd go the other way.
I voted chaos sorcerer, for the reasons already stated and because i genuinely think they are the better of the two for their coolness factor,
Picture it, a giant of a man in black armour that writhes in arcane symbols (which he can wear and still cast spells, ) shooting fire from his hands!! Cool!
I have always had a preference for the mortal, human followers of chaos as well.
Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. After that, who cares, your a mile away and you have his shoes!!

i vote for the shamans, because:
-you can put them in beast herds.
the primary advantage is that if you field the sorcerors in warriors units, they will get involved in cc and possibly be killed - instead some cheap herds full of ungors, should keep the shamans safe from shooting and stay away from combat. if the herds are engaged in cc, some gors will make it a fair combat. if you buy the crown of horns it will aid the entire herd; or if you buy the chaos armour, even better, the shaman will be able to fight back, especially if he's got the lore of beasts.
-the lore of beasts is imo better than fire, because it can turn the tide of battles. the bear's anger grants any mage the possibility to survive and win a fight, the hunter's spear is a ballista shot (wonderful in a chaos army), and other two spells are also good: the one that makes you do an extra move for charge or the one that blocks the movement of an enemy animal (imagine this cast on a heavy cavalry unit that gets subsequently charged)
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
I agree, I have come to like the lore of beasts more and more recently. The fact remains, however that Bray Shamans and Chaos Sorcerers perform different roles. I would have to say, though, that the bray shaman is more versatile and cheaper, so just going on that I pick him.
totally depends on the situation and the army you are fielding. I really don't think they compare well together. As far as points for my buck, the Chaos sorceror will always be more effective. They have better stats, come with Chaos Armor, can be mounted have access to Fire lore. Their leadership isn't pitiful. I could go on and on. But in an all beast army, where would you put a chaos sorceror? You would have to take knights or marauders or something.
i perfer the bray shaman mainly because i like beasts and i love the lore of beasts (the spells and the fluff)
I vote for the chaos sorceror.
I have a tzeentch army and I have 15-17 power dices in a 2500 points army so I need the raw power of the lore of fire to burn my enemy. I don't need the sorceror to fight (I have the tzeentch paladins for this porpouse) so the lore of beast is a waste all the time.
I like the lore of fire even more than the lore of tzeentch!!!
Depends on what I'm doing, and what I need done, but for the most part shamen.
