As chariot models can look really good if converted/made/painted properly, I was wondering whether anyone used them, and whether it was worth the money or the effort.
So, -Have you used them?
-Were they any good?
-Would I be better off spending the points elsewhere?
Thanks for any advice.
Model is quite old, horses of previous edition look nothing like current ones, and they are taking precious Special points... So my answer is never.
I didn't intend to use them as they are, especially the horses, but if they're not very good then I won't bother anyway.
I rarely use them since I prefer knights but against certain units they have their uses.
I seldom use them except as proxy warshrines, Trolls, Chosen & Knights are just too good to ignore.
An unmarked chariot is still pretty good value, and really nice to slam into an enemy flank for a bit of combat resolution - ie. Marauder support.

A guy who has tons of success with WoC in some high-competition tournaments swears by them, but he runs MSU. I don't think the Chariot brings much to the table for the "standard" WoC army.
Multiple Small Units. It's a style of army that eschews the larger unit sizes (anything bigger than 25 or so guys) in favor of packing multiple units with the same points investiture. It's a very execution-intensive way to play the game, but some people prefer it because they're extensively familiar with its strengths and weaknesses, plus it does have the benefit of giving you more shots at enemy flanks (which the downside being that you're very unlikely to hold in a prolonged combat that you happen to lose).
At first i wasnt too keen on using my chariot. I had inherited one about five years ago from a buddy who used to play Warhammer and figured i might as well use it because my only other special unit was a squad of knights. So i have fielded my chariot every game and I have honesty enjoyed it. The chariot doesnt really fit the cookie cutter build for WoC but i have tons of fun with mine and most of my friends groan when they see me put it on the table.
I think the truest value of the chariot is that it attracts many times as much attention as its actual points cost and threat level justify...
