just wondering would a spartan themed chaos army work. if so what marks do you think be most appropriate and would anyone care to post an armylist in the amrylist section. i would also like to hear tactics and units.
thanks in advance, all comments welcome!
I don't think you'll have much luck here, and for one basic reason: no rank and file chaos warriors can take spears as a weapon option. As far as marks go, I would say MoS first and foremost to represent their fearlessnes, and either MoN or MoT as defensive options to represent their shield proficiency. But without attacking in ranks, I just don't see it coming off very convincingly.
The army that immediately springs to mind for this kind of thing is lizardmen. 2 Str 4 attacks, 4+ armour save, and they can take spears to fight in two ranks. Cold-blooded is a great ability, making them extremely resilient against fear and terror causers and even less likely to break.
Themed armies can be a lot of fun if you like histroical wargaming and aren't so much into the fantasy aspect, but still want to play a game that people actually enjoy One of our locals has a samurai army based on the Empire army book, and it looks really cool.
Feel free to paparazzi that army. Sounds interesting.
Isn't there a asian like army (don't know if it were in an previous edition) called cathay?
By the way Rav, you should look into high elves spearmen maybe? Closest thing to spartans that come to mind..

well no, they dont really need spears, how about those greek swords of them, together with round shields a those nice helmets, would be incredibly hard to sculpt though, by the way, spartan, or spartan themed? you know, like exactelly the way they look in 300, or more with a spartan look?
If so, maybe chaos isnt really the army you need, well except for their stats XD
