I have recentley started a Warhammer Hoardes of Chaos Mortal Army, (aka no daemons:happy
Just wondering if anyone has any tips/Ideas to offer?
Was my birthday yesterday and so far i have bought,
2 X Warriors of Chaos box sets.
How could i improve on this list? and again, if anyone has any tips or ideas that will help they would be very much appriciated
Just want to make sure that you are aware, the Hordes of Chaos army book is now obsolete, there is currently a temporary army list, published in the last White Dwarf, which will be used while we wait for a new army book.
You can also download the armylist on the website GW Online : Warhammer : Hordes of Chaos : Warriors of Chaos Army List the list i think is going to need several things, your gona need some marauders to provide static combat res, a wizard for magic defence, a chariot, some spawn, knights and chaos hounds, pretty much the basics for a chaos list.
Genereally because your a slow moving infantry army you need units like spawn to protect against enemy fast cavaly, scouts and skirmishers, i usually use a pair of these and stick them on the flank of my main infantry block so they can also protect the rear from fliers.
I think with nurgle you need units of 15/20 models so you can best take advantage of causing fear, i would consider two units, one around 20 models with HW+ SH, with a 3+ save, T4, cause fear, I5 and high ws they are going to well. As we can no longer take minotaurs i personally would have a unit of chosen with great weapons, this means you have a unit with two attacks, 4+ save and strength 6, thing empire greatswords on crack.
Personally i would atleast take 3 units of chaos hounds, what they do is provide a cheap unit that can screen you against shooting, march block, charge crew, get round flanks, all for 30pts!
Your marauder blocks are the place to stick you hero, unit of 19-24 (24 is better really), give them HW + SH and this gives you a very solid infantry unit, the hero makes up for the lack of punch. You can always go with a great weapons and have a hero in the unit with helm of many eyes (ASF) and great weapon (strength 7!)
Nurgle chariots are great as well, T5, 3+ save, cause fear, good stats, two for one special slot now as well, great support unit for you infantry block (and also the main defence against HE Sword Masters).
anyways i hope thats some food for thought anyways
oh right! thankyou very much you wudnt happen to know a rough date when the updated one is out would you?
Happy Jim! thankyou so much! really appriciate the advive! thanx a bunch!
I believe the book is due in November, but don't quote me on that.
Yeah i heard the rumor was November, at one stage skaven was rumored for November as well, its anyone guess however the WD list should give you a rough idea the direction the list is going (did with beastmen), i do hope however we get something other than a giant in the long run, i would have rather had a shaggoth!
Great find with that link Jim, didnt know it was online yet. Nice one
And the Giant and Hellcannon rules in the same place, looks like GW did something right for once
Yeah but thats only if you discount the content of the actual army list! The list was actually on the Italian site several weeks ago.
