Is it really worth taking two hand weapons on my basic warriors or would the shield do better? I'm a little new to HoC so not too sure.
Hello and welcome to chaos! 8Y
I can give you two advices: first, statistically it is better to have a halberd, rather than 2 hand weapons, to cause more wounds; second, i and maybe everyone else could tell you that, since chaos warriors cost so much, having a shield for extra protection against shooting is essential. So i usually field warriors with halberd and shield, and drop the shield in cc.
It's better, it's shiny, it's warped...it's Chaos.
Thats right. halberd and shield works very good and the you just give them chosen and MoK and they will be a slaughter machine but chosen knights of khorne is quiet better8Y
Summary: Chosen or Khorne Warriors should get the halberd. Others will do better with the extra hand weapon, although +3 points/model is a lot and you may not want to spend that much.
