Welcome to Librarium Online!
From what I've seen of the new chaos knights, they are much better than their predersessers, I think they are arguably the most powerful calavary unit in WHFB. Anyone here agree?
I haven't seen their stats yet so I can't comment on their strength in-game but I am happy that they are now plastic models. Which in my opinion is a big improvement.
Rule 37: There is no 'overkill'. There is only 'open fire' and 'I need to reload'.
they are always guna be amazeing cavalry but they dont mach blood knights...
I beg to differ madman. Heres why:
-x5 Chaos Knights with Full Command and Mark of Khorne are cheaper than x5 Blood Knights with Full Command
-Blood Knights have the problem of being undead so instead of break tests, take wounds
-Chaos Knights save is 1 better than Blood Knights
-Chaos Knights are special choices where as Blood Knights are rare
There is ony thing that i can think of that goes in favour of Blood Knights and that is the fact they naturally have +1 strength over the Chaos Knights. At the end of the day, it'll be a case of whoever charges, wins. However, i still think with the cheaper cost and better save, Chaos Knights are the better option.
You say the most powerful in which case the Blood Knights still win hands down due to the amount of S7 attacks they give but that doesn't make them better. The fact that Chaos Knights aren't frenzied and how good the mark of nurgle is for them, makes them better than blood knights who can't compare. Blood Knights aren't even the best knights for VC, Black knights are hands down. So in my opinion the best knight unit is either Chaos Knights, Black Knights, Dragon Princes though it's hard to decide. Being a VC player I'm biased towards Black Knights.

If Chaos Knights with lances charge Dragon Princes, they win.
If Chaos Knights with magic weapons charge Dragon Princes, they win.
If Chaos Knights with lances are charged by Dragon Princes, it's a draw.
If Chaos Knights with magic weapons are charge by Dragon Princes, they win.
I know which side I'd rather be on.
Dragon princes? they go squish squish under my heavily armoured boot...
but i see where you come from with blood knights...
just had visions of str7...
but princes are truely awfull i can take a unit apart in 1 combat (even if they get the charge) there still only S3 with a T3 Sv 2+ its over-kill...
The thing you forget about Dragon Princes is they are cheaper, faster, immune to fire attacks and 9/10 will have a nifty Banner of Ellyrion and still be cheaper than bare Chaos Knights. Which when you add those benefits up puts them level with Chaos Knights when you look at it from a tactical stand point. Besides Dragon Princes are likely not to be charged by Chaos Knights or charge them head on because of their attributes so the comparison of them fighting each other is irrelevant.
That is why I think they as well as Chaos Knights and Black Knights are the best in the game.

Black Knights are 2 points cheaper than Dragon Princes so a lot cheaper than Chaos Knights and for that the have a built in Ellyrion banner with their ethereal movement, cause fear, can be magically repaired, have killing blow and magic attacks, S4 and T4. The downside is they can only march if near the general or a vampire, have 1 attack each and are only WS3. Though there is a hatred banner or +1 to hit banner that solves that problem.
