Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am thinking about starting a Warriors of Chaos army, and in the past have seen that sometimes its better to get separate box sets rather than the battalion.
Is this the case with the Warriors of Chaos?
The WoC Battalion box is awesome. You will use every unit in there and it comes at a discount. If you are looking to get started in WoC I would recommend the battalion box, then follow Mr_Wayne's advice at http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...-woc-army.html (Starting woc army)
Mr_Wayne's method of starting WoC is the perfect recipe...
You shouldn't get a battalion box... you should get 2. You'll need all that core for 2k anyway. Why paint in two batches?
I've got well over 2000 points in my chaos army and i still use every model from the battalion box. Definately a must buy.
Heh, I've got like 3000pts of stuff and I'm buying another Battalion box soon. Even if you don't need the extra knights (only so many 350pt units can fit) you will need the bitz for so much:
-Horses for converted characters
-Horses for Warshrines
-Lances for Warriors with halberds
-Knight bodies and heads for converted characters
Just so good considering its pretty much free if you buy the Battalion instead of seperate boxes.
depends on wut u wanna do; id say yes, except if u are going to: 1)do a throgg troll list only 2) do an all cavalry list(not so much anymore(wut i ran in 7th)) otherwise, everything is just great// u need many marauders and warriors in 8th, the knights are great for converting and they are good as a unit, and dogs are so necesary for 30 pts a unit
The battalion box is the best buy you can do. Everything in it is usable. It's the best battalion box GW has made.

Indeed. I have two.

By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Buy it Buy it Buy it! In Fact get two!!!! You will need everything in that box to form up you Army.
Maybe you should buy 3 !!! Then you will have lots of bits for conversions....you get the idea though BUY IT !!!
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
