Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm thinking of starting a mortal army, I have a nice Tomb King army and a small Empire army. At my local club there are almost every army except a chaos army, that with the fact that I've always like chaos make me think is it time to start. I've read that the new book is being released in November, but I would like to start with a few models and see how I like the army.
I'm thinking of getting a Marauder box first, just to play around with a few conversions, does the Marauder box contain a mutation sprue or does it only come with the Chaos Warriors? I've seen a few pics with a head that looks like it has two faces on what sprue is that head? Last question I see on the GW website that all the Chaos Lords on a mount are on a monster base, why is that shouldn't they be on a normal cavalry base?
HoC will be getting a WD update in june, and then a new book (Mortals of Chaos) In Aug or Nov. Likely with the arrival of new models too. Id wait until then tbh to start getting stuff. Though the current Warriors are great, its likely theyll get more optional sprues. marauders will prob be redone completely, theyre not the best models.
Daemonic mounts are on Monster sized bases, but normal mounts should be on a normal cav base yea.
It mounts of the nurgle and khone lords looked like normal horses, but you can clearly see that the other two are demonic mounts but it makes sence now thanks.
I dont think the Mutation sprue exists anymore, the Chaos Warrior models got redone for the Storm Of Chaos campaign (and by the gods do they look good).
If you dont want to wait I would advise going with the warriors instead of marauders, they probably wont be redone completely (because they look so good) and maybe an Exalted champion on foot to lead them. You might want to play small 500-750 pts games until November.
Did I mention I really like the Chaos Warrior models?

You could go ahead and get some Chaos Warriors, but I would listen to the above posters when they say wait on the marauders. I purchased the marauders box and am slightly unimpressed. They are very plain.. which just isnt chaos. I'm sure if you wanted to save some cash, you could wait until the new stuff comes out and buy up the older models since they will probably get a price drop (at least thats how the shops around my area do it).

I must say I just striked it lucky as friend of mine gave me a box of Maruaders and a box Zombies, he said he wanted to convert them, but he changed his mind. I bought my self a box warriors and 5 knights. At least now I can work on a paint scheme and play a few small games and see how chaos works.
