Why don't people play with all chariot armies?
Because they are boring and cheesy.
I played an army of just chariots, dogs and disk mounted chariots for a while; great fun but totally absurd. I would imagine that people don't like shelling out large amounts of money for an army that would be so inflexible.
Up, up and away!
Chariots hit hard, but oce they charge and dont auto break the enemy, then it becomes very difficult for them to win combats, especially against large ranked units.
Against any army with a few of these large ranked units or more then it can become difficult co coordinate powerful well timed combined charges to ensure enough wounds are caused, as well as avoiding ranged damage at the same time.
That is the key weakness of an all chariot list i think.
Apart from that yeah, whilst reasonably fast if they dont break the unit first time around they are up shit creek without a paddle...or a boat.
Also, Hordes of Chaos armies have a low enough model count as is.
The name refers to facial hair, not playing style.Originally Posted by A news vendor's stand, London, June 1940
That, and if you play against wood elves that love to place forests in all the right places, they get hurt. They get hurt bad.
