Hello all, I thought I would post a quick question and see if I could get any response. I am thinking of starting up WoC, I currently play Skaven, and am looking for an alternate army to mess around with, paint, and have a playstyle change.
I realize that the new WoC stuff is coming out in the next few months, and rumors are starting to hone in on truth. I am looking to start at the warbands level (about 500pts) and work my way up slowly. I wanted to know if anyone has suggestions on what is a good base for the army, a solid 500pts to work up from.
This is all kind of tough to say at the moment, but I am looking to hear if anyone has suggestions, given the fact that the book is getting redone. Is there a unit or two that will absolutely still be vital even with whatever changes occur? Also, probably more importantly, are there important units that we KNOW are not being replaced with new models - I don't mind having older models, but it's foolish to buy anything 2-3 months before new ones come out.
It would be nice to get even one unit bought/built over the next month or two awaiting the new release. If, on the other hand, people think that it isn't a good idea to get anything at this point, with the new release getting so close, I will accept that as solid advice too, that is what half of my head is telling me. Anyways, keep in mind that when I play I will try to win, but I am far from min/maxing lists or playing WAAC. I have yet to do any tournament play outside of my friendly gaming group, nor would I expect to do so with Chaos anytime soon. Thanks in advance for any help.
Chaos Warriors (excellent models) and Marauders will likely be staying the same. Also I would guess that Spawns and the Giant will also being staying the same.
Safew buys (not model wise, but reppearance in the book)
any of the Lords/Heroes excluding special characters
Marauders on foot
things that I would steer clear of
This is entirely based on speculation, but really, the core of the army will remain the same, and some of the excess and rare choices will be trimmed down.
I am warning you however, that the weapons options might change. Warriors with Great Weapons may be a thing of the past, same goes for some of their other more esoteric choices. I always err on the side of caution and just wait for the book, but I actually think that this switch will be fine. The Chaos book hasn't been updated in quite a while, so most of the changes will just make it better.

If someone helps you REP them...
Spawn are always a safe bet. Everyone loves spawn. Either that or they love what spawn to to march-blocking units.
Plus, quick and easy to paint.
Hmm, that's some good ideas, I will think about doing a spawn, and maybe doing some conversion based foot marauders, but I'll probably just wait on the rest. It won't be that long anyways. Thanks for the help all.
