Hi all, im off to my local store this wednesday for some long awaited gaming. I havn't played with my warriors for some time (since the previous army book) and have aquired some more models since then. I would like some help on what would be the most competetive 1000pt army with the models i have. The army has no marks so is undivided. (the ogres do wear blue trousers tho)
Here it is:
2 Characters, both combat ones. One armed with 2 hand weapons and the other shield and hand weapon. -items? chariot mount?
44 Marauders with light armour, shields and hand weapon. 2 command groups
11 Warriors with shields
4 Ogres with great weapons
In a 1000 pts:
5 Naked Knights is usually really good.
Take the Warhounds: so cheap.
You need 2 cores, so block of 20 marauders (MoS) + 11 Chaos Warriors (shield+Halberd).
That takes you to roughly 650.
Then, either take a naked sorc on a chariot + 1 dispel scroll + 1 combat hero.
OR (and this is the setup i'd go for) take 2 combat heroes.
Put one on a horse w/Fury of the blood god (MR2) 4+ ward against spells, put him with your knights.
The other on foot or a horse with collar of khorne (MR2) 6+ ward. give him a magic weapon, put him with the warriors.
That way, you have MR(2) both on your knights and warriors. If the Hounds or the Marauders get busted... no biggie, since the MoS marauders are immune to panic..
"How do you stop a Chaos Knight from charging? No seriously, HELP!" André le Bouffon, jester of the Bretonnian court - last words.
Thanks for your ideas but i should have been more clear. My hero models are on foot and i have no sorceror models.
Also the whole army will be undivided. Are the warriors essential with 2 units of marauders and the other hard hitting units i have available? What are common set ups for low point heroes?

Definitely, use the Chariot as a mount for one of your Heroes. As a mount, it does not count as a special choice. Also becomes a US 5 unit and can then claim a table quarter.
Try this list... get a lot of tough special choices and will hit very hard at 1000 pts. Give you a small anvil unit w/Warriors, and some heavy hammers. The hounds can screen your knights, General goes with knights.
1 Exalted Hero @ 135 Pts (goes with Knights)
General; Barding; Hand Weapon; Halberd; Chaos Armor; Shield
1 Exalted Hero @ 214 Pts
Hand Weapon; Extra Hand Weapon; Chaos Armor
5 Chaos Knights @ xxx Pts
3 Dragon Ogres @ xxx Pts
10 Chaos Warriors @ xxx Pts
Hand Weapon; Chaos Armor; Shield
6 Chaos Warhounds @ xx Pts
10 Chaos Marauders @ xx Pts
Hand Weapon; Light Armour; Shield
Total Roster Cost: 1000
OOOPS! I miss read your post... thought those were Dragon Ogres... but you get point. :-)
Just swap out the Dragon Ogres for your 4 Ogres with GW, I believe that will save your 15 points. You can give one of your Heroes a magic item or shield etc... still works really well.
Thanks again i will try a list close to the idea's you have given. will be posting how it goes tommorro. I usually make the mistake of telling my oppenent i have chaos and they tailor there list to suit.
p.s How do ya get the w-l-d thing at the bottom of each post??
Ok this is what im going for.
Exalted hero additional hand weapon, mounted in chariot
Exalted hero with shield *General *joins marauders
10 Warriors with shields
21 Marauders with shields, handweapons and full command.
3 Ogres with great weapons
5 Chaos knights
Got a win against vampire counts, had some luck as he had a no magic counts list.
He had Konrad, a BSB 2 skelton units, a grave guard unit and 5 blood knights.
With some sccesful charges and 2 first round victorys in challenges my oppenent had to declare by turn 4, as both characters were dead and half his army was defeted and crumbling.
