Welcome to Librarium Online!
hi i have recently started warhammer fantasy and i went for warriors of choas, i have bought a battle force, a box of warriors, exalted hero and some chosen of choas ( without command) i have played a few games and not done to well, so im asking can you give me some advice and some army lists i can try out, any help would be much appreciated thanks
this is a list of things i have got and the way i built them
exalted hero-sheild and great wepon
warriors of choas-full command, addition hand weapons (12 models)
warriors of chaos-full command, hand weapon and sheilds (12 models)
marauders-full command, flails (20 models)
chaos warhounds-(10 models)
chaos knights-full command, lances (5 models)
chaos chosen-great weapons(5 modes)
money really isnt a issue so if you have some advice please send it my way, well thank you for your time
im not an expert with these big lads, but i can see the main tricks this army has up its sleave.
(perhaps those lazy chaos warriors only look in the chaos warriors thread)
- Their characters and how you equip them is probably the most important part, not because they are so expensive, but because they are amongst the most powerful in all Warhammer. with no equals, you can make a character and a well timed/ supported charge break any unit, even elite blocks up the centre of his force
you have 1 character, i suggest you get at least one more.
- Their cavalry are possibly their best usable units, because well, every tourney winner i see has at least a few units knights or marauder cavalry.
you have some of these so the army setup should be fine! Perhaps a unit marauder cavalry can give you some extra options.
Chaos is hard to play with and the enemy knows what to expect, and really does not want to enter combat with your heroes.
- All the units avaiilable seem so good it can potentially blind someone just by looking at it x_x
Dont fall into the trap of deploying only the best of the best, If you upgrade everything you have very few soldiers on the battlefield and have no chance to begin with.
dont spend all your points on just a few badasbutchers, you need to some sacrificial meatwalls or the likes
- artillery can kill alot of your points in just a few shots
its all about maneuvering , did you see the tactica section?
heres a sample 2250 list i stole from the chaos warriors section:
note its less than 60 men. with this kind of points i deploy 250 goblins with a nice 5 piece artillery backup =D

Good luck with your strategy, if you get tired of these walking tinmen give a visit to the orcs & Goblins

Moved to the warriors of chaos forum. May get more informed help here.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
