Basically what the title says... I'm either going to make a hordes of chaos army (strictly mortals) or a Daemons of Chaos army. I like the chaos stats and the look of the mortals so is it possible to make a chaos army all mortals, mainly chaos warriors with exceptions of a few marauders war hounds knights etc... and with DoC since I didn't see a forum for them yet I assume this is the one to post on. I'm totally open to any suggestions and I want to know the ups and downs of Chaos mortals and Daemons.
P.S. If I was to play HoC I was looking to be Undivided, and if I was to play DoC I prefer Khorne and Slaanesh. Tzeentch is ooook and I hate Nurgle cause they look like they were gutted and then crapped on themselves --- no offence to those of you that are Nurgle players.
I'm new to fantasy along with librarium, In 40k i play Necrons and got tired of playing 40k.
Hordes: Good Armour, Good Toughness, and can have amazing magic with a Tzeentch army. I personally think the Slaanesh lore is the best in the book, but Tzeentch has the potential for more power dice. Good leadership and very hard hitting. They have Core Cavalry, Chariots, and excellent infantry. But they have almost no shooting aside from 8" range flamers, which don't help too much for their points with the current rules.
Daemons are a bit faster, but haven no armour. They are unbreakable, immune to psychology, and all of them have a 5+ ward save. Also, the Daemons get special bonuses when a hero joins a unit with the same mark (IE Hatred for Khorne, 5+ increased to 4+ for Tzeentch, ASF for Slaanesh, and Regen for Nurgle). The DoC have more and better Special characters. Daemons have better shooting--their flamers have 18" range with S4 as opposed to S3 in the Hordes book.
There are other benefits/drawbacks, but that about sums it up for the most part.
If I were you I might just wait until the new Mortals book comes out in November to make your decision, because they are likely to change alot of the rules between now and then, and you might not want to make a decision you will regret. :
Hope this helps!

No, I don't have any wool.
Thank for the info. I'm (HoC)60/40(DoC) really because I love the chaos warriors their profile look everything about them and with DoC i like Khorne the most but i like the idea of an almost all chaos warrior army (if it would work that is) a little bit more than an all Khorne daemon army. But I really still not sure. Also do you know if the new HoC army book will have any new units and if they'll make the chaos warriors look different because I love the chaos look now and if they updated it i would want it to look better not worse so I'm skeptical about this... and i can still use as much info as i can get to help me decide which army to take. Thank for all the help by the way.
P.S. wait nvm I've read a lot of forums now and actually I've gone from 60/40 to 20/80
DoC is starting to look really good to me.

I certainly hope they don't change the look of the warriors because I agree, they look awesome as is. There are rumors of a new core unit called cultists that should be weaker than marauders but can be marked in some way.. Here, I'll link you to the rumor post!
There. That should have more info than I can give you. Good luck with your decision!

We (MoC) are supposed to get a new book in November of this year... that might change your mind on what to play. Daemons are very good... but I prefer my mortals.
I agree with Wrekka, but I would still wait until nov to make my final decision. Play around with both armies. I got the chance to try out a 1k Daemons list at my local gaming store this past weekend and I really liked them, but I still prefer my mortals somewhat. I would suggest looking at the daemon book if you have the chance and even playing a game or two with them before you decide.

Another thing you could do is go buy the DoC book and "proxy" your current models of any army you have (40k or whfb) just to try them out. I know I have had a few friends buy army books and proxy models to try the army out before they made the plung.. and it really made the difference for them.
I suggest trying that out. Hopefully you have some friends/local gaming buddies that will let you do that.
Yeah I do and I'll try that out maybe it'll help me make my final decision. Thx for the tips everyone.I suggest trying that out. Hopefully you have some friends/local gaming buddies that will let you do that.
OMG Still so hard to decide! I love mortals profile but I love daemons profile lol.
I'm only going for 1 because my secondary prob gona be HE... maybe DE but I wont be startin that till I got a real ground base for my first army.
So with that in mind.. if only a couple types of daemons interest you, this could be highly beneficial to you! I, for one, only take chaos spawns, and no daemons in my army so I am completely uneffected (except I will have to buy a new book, and the new unit that comes with it).
Just a thought
Yeah but for now I think I'll just start on lizardmen and wait to see for chaos. Thanks for the tip.
I thought I was smart, but apparently people don't like to take advice from beggars.
