Having played High Elves for many years I am now making a switch to the dark side. I have spent a few hours reading this board and reading the army book. I have a few questions to ask here and please be patient with me if they are stupid or repeats, I did spend quite some time reading old posts to find many other answers for myself.
1) I get the impression that the mark of Tzeentch stacks with other ward saves, If I made a battle standard bearer of Tzeentch equipped with the blasted standard would this mean he now gives a unit a 4+ ward against shooting and a 6+ ward for himself?
2) Also could the said battle standard bearer join a unit of slannesh warriors and quite contently walk into panic/fear/terror situations without the need to test? Even if he had to still test for fear and terror alone would he at least be safe from panic casulties caused from the unit being shot?
3) Is a Daemon Prince a large target or not? My book says nothing about it but I know how GW can be for changing rules later lol.
4) Also would a Tzeentch marked Daemon Prince with the Fury of the Blood God have a 3+ ward against wounds from spells due to his mark enhancing the ward?
These are all my questions for now, my thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the dark side! I will answer your questions as best i can.
1) If the bsb has Tzeentch and the blasted standard then he still only gives the unit a 5+ wardsave, but if something randoms onto him he will have a 4+ ward. However if the unit is tzeentch then they will have a 4+ ward as well.
2) I don't play much slaanesh so am not sure about this one, but i would say he gains immunity to fear, terror, and panic along with the unit even if he is a different mark, however i'm really not sure about that one.
3)He is not a large target.
4)Yes he would have a 3+ ward against spells, and a natural 4+ ward against everything else.
Thanks for the reply Sir, it goes much appreciated.
I have another question for any one who is willing to assist me...
It says in the chaos army book that chaos warriors may pick at least one of the following: (Their weapons selections) Does this mean I could effectively arm them to the teeth in the same manner as Black Orcs? I am not asking of the sanity or value of such an action but rather asking if it is legal.
Many thanks in advance,
Yes you can gear the chaos warriors to the teeth, but once combat hits you must choose and stay with that gear for the duration of the fight.
Yes, I arm my Chosen with halberds shields and extra hand weapons, and it's great. They can mow through huge ranks of goblins, tarpit lizardmen, even Treemen and so forth. Great flexibility, and a hassle for your opponent to worry about.
Do you actually get to do any mowing though? If I kit my Chaos Warriors up with anything decent, my opponents just avoid them like the plague... :-(
I have some similar newbish questions, as I'm coming from HE and VC as my other main armies. I figure that since this thread seems to have gone quiet, I could maybe ask a few more?
1- how much does magic really matter to Warriors, and how should you go about it? Strong defense? Strong Offense? Just some caddies?
2- is an all-cavalry list viable? My VC are great ground-pounders and my HighElves lost their bid for all-cav. Can Chaos do it? And more importantly- can they do it well?
3- Tournament army? Are they? How do they do well, why, etc.
4- Any good advice for kitting out heroes? For WoodElves it's the HoDA noble and the AlterNoble. What is it for a good warriors army?
I'm getting into an army that I can collect, and I don't want to toss money in the wrong the directions.
I would like to add just a few more things other than what shakedown47 has already spoken of. I find that he knows the Woc army very well, but i would like to add that in a tournament competitive Woc you must go heavy magic. I have found that not having a shooting phase can keep you in a stasis. I find that several cheap casters with magic missiles can easy make up for this. I also have a HE, VC and Woc army. I just finished the San Jose Ard Boyz and after placing first with Woc i think i have a good enough list to take to Sacramento. Once again let me say that i ran very magic and calv heay. Woc needs speed and i know we have some of the best foot in game but the movement 4 just kills you. Keep fast, keep shooty.
