Naked! Nothing but heavy armor and hand weapons
Hey all, I'm curious to know what you kit your warriors/chosen up with. I just bought a box of chaos warriors, and I'm not sure how to build them. I will probably be getting some of the new metal chosen, so these will be built as regular warriors. However, knowing that the new warrior stats will be close to current chosen, I am probably more interested in how you currently kit out your Chosen. Please let me know the reasons for your choices if you have the time as well. Thanks!
Im going Shield and hand weapon at regular warriors (for the 2+save) and 2handed weapons+mark of nurgle to my chosen to do damage,already preordered the spearhead! :>
Basic hand weapon and shield, If they are khorne then maybe 2 hand weapons or great weapon.
great wepons all the way man!!!
shieds give you the choice of a 2+ save which is nice against low str elves where str4 is enuff.
but many a ogre has been felled by my great wepon weilding chosen.

If someone helps you REP them...
Really depends what you want the unit to do, i usually give my normal chaos warriors additional hand weapons and send them after T3 enemies. I use Great weapons on my chosen and use them to take out high T & save enemies, great against knights. The thing is not many knight units want to charge a unit of chosen unless they know they can kill the whole rank, even with two striking back thats still 6(7 with champion) WS5 strength 6 attacks.
I personally think halberds arnt all that great on warriors, if you want lots of S5 attacks then you have knights which faster, i think the only time i would HW+SH is really if i was using the unit as a anvil backed up by banner of the gods.
Now here is the thing, how is givign great weapons or halberds to your chosen better than other chaos warriros, is it the extra attack?
Ayup, that extra attack makes a huge difference when is comes to those high strength attacks. I really don't want to do the math right now, but you're more likely to kill something big with 2 str 6 attacks than 3 str 4 attacks.
I'm too lazy to come up with a witty sig.
Am I the only one that thinks wearing a suit of heavy steel armour is stretching the definition of "naked" just a tad?
When kitting out my chosen I have a fondness for an extra hand weapon and a shield, so i have the versitility of being able to bunker down behind the shields if attacked by someone elses elite troops (especially stuff with +S on the charge or in turn one of the combat), or whipping out another sword to go mental on enemy rank-and-file troops.

If they are Khorne, I'd go for AHW + Shield, so you have a better save bonus whilst moving, and then can bang out 4/5 attacks in combat. Although I'm not sure if this is possible with the next edition of the book, feel free to correct me :]
