The new WoC book has spurred a lot of interest and almost everybody here is a fan in one way or another.
What do you like most about the army? What units? What models? What background or storyline? The magic?
One thing I like is the Chaos Warshrine. I think it offers spectacular modeling opportunities alongside awesome combat/gameplay benefits.
I love the plethora of monsters. Both Kholek Suneater and Throgg are incredibly good and there are a few good conversions already. Ogres are pretty good, Dragon Ogres I have fallen in love with and Chaos Trolls are incredible for a mere 45 points a model.
I also love the new Warriors and Knights. They really run home how brutally effective the servants of Chaos are supposed to be in the fluff.
Trust in your core choices - love them, hate them, wish them dead to clear charges, but remember that come end they will pull off a miracle for you.
Originally the Knight and Marauder Horsemen models were what drew me to them (hence me making an all cav list) but the more i read the rules and the fluff, the more i absolutely love them. The main thing i love is the entire Norse aspect of them, with the longships and such.

I've always been a fan of chaos, it was my first fantasy army. To be honest i'm more of a modeller/painter than a gamer. And the Warriors of chaos has some of the coolest models in the GW range, added with the fact that anything goes in terms of conversions you're pretty much spoilt for choice. The range of the models is also another reason i love them, You've got the choice of painting lots of Flesh, armour, monsters, hoard armies, small elite armies, Cavalry, Infantry................What haven't you got??? I've never got bored of the chaos range because theres always something i havent done.
I'm also quite heavily into my Tribal Background so all the Celtic. Viking, saxon esc Background and myth that goes along with the Chaos army is just the icing on the cake.
I personally love the models, the "nordic" based background and that the army looks even more awesome when I'm listening to some nice Heavy-metal! \m/
My other army is wood elves and in that way I have two completely different game styles which keeps everything interesting.
I started them because I got a great deal for a 3000 point army on barter town a month before the book came out. Wasn't really looking to get into them, but I'm a sucker for deals. I didn't know what the heck I was doing and went 1-3-1 in my first tournament with them.
Now I've fallen in love with daemon princes and have like a 8-2-0 record since using him. Unfortunetely, I'm starting to lose interest in the rest of the army and the daemon prince is the only thing I keep finding to be fun. Except when my cruise missile horsemen obliterate something and my opponent calls cheese. The nerf my nurgle knights took hit me hard in the interest factor. Specially since I got a great looking demon army a few weeks back.
I find it funny that GW doesn't even mention a model for a warsrhine like its a forgotten unit to them, but how that move was so successful because everyone I've talked to is having so much fun converting them.

I like the Chaos Warriors and Knights (especially the previous metal model for the knights).
They really look and feel, like cold-blooded, hard-bitten, veteran. Those are the best looking core models in the game (the knights are not core anymore, but still, they feel and are fielded like core)
"How do you stop a Chaos Knight from charging? No seriously, HELP!" André le Bouffon, jester of the Bretonnian court - last words.
i started warriors of chaos because the new models are awsome and i liked how i could make a story up easily about how my warband came to be.
Please don't cut me at the knees short scary giner person with a beard.
the Chaos Warrior was probably the #1 reason I picked chaos as my army.
from playing games like Hero Quest and Battle Masters as a kid, the chaos warriors were always the hardest guys in the game. Once I got a bit older and a bit more cash into my pocket I started on Warhammer, and I knew from the get go that Chaos was going to be my army.
Even the old hunchback warriors didn't look too bad, but the new ones look pretty damn good. The recently released chosen are simply amazing and the new knights (which I haven't gotten into yet) are also a stellar model.
Being able to combine the demons and beasts in the older books was nice, and I like the big hard hitting monsters (hello dragon ogres) but the number 1 reason would be the look and feel of the chaos warrior, and having arguably the best core troop in the game in terms of sheer killing power (it might not be the most efficient, but is probably the most deadly in a 1 on 1 situation)
it is what has kept me into the army even after the release of a more balanced book in the recent line of "power books" that GW has been cranking out.
