I'm just starting Warriors of Chaos in anticipation of the new Spearhead next month, so I'm getting started on my Core.
I want to build these with the new rules (or what we know of them) in mind, that way I don't have to go buy all new mini's when the book comes out!
So here are a few questions for those of you in the know...
Warriors. For my basic troops I was planning on equipping them with Hand Weapon and Shield. Is that the best option? Note that I will be taking a unit of the new Chosen with Great Weapons to be my hammer unit. Warriors will be my static troops.
Marauders: I'm planning on running these in units of 25, but I'm not sure how to equip them. Do I go Light Armor and Shield or do I go Flails?
Thanks for taking the time to read this! This can at least get me building while I'm waiting for the new book!

No idea for Marauders, but I'd say go with flails. If I were a WoC player, I'd use them as a pretty cheap unit for easy CRes.
Really depends on how big the unit is and what you want it to do, HW + SH is great if you want a solid anvil unit, its going to need at the very least a warbanner however otherwise with only leadership 8 chances are any unit that changes it will be able to break it with static combat res (more basing this on new list rather than WD list).
Halberds are ok if you khorne, personally however i think if you want strength 5 attacks you should be using your chaos knights for thise, Great weapons i find very handy, gives you a nice counter charge unit that can actually hurt enemy armour (knights or high armour infantry). Additional hand weapons can be very handy but i think the main problem here is that you have to get them into combat with the right unit.
HW+SH is great for marauders however i would use great weapons if they have a hero with ASF in the unit (he should kill most of the enemy front rank to allow you to strike back), i personally dont like flails, i would only use them over great weapons if i was doing a nurgle army (seems very fluffy).
Anyways, hope that helps abit.
