Good morning .
In my quest, for a list dedicated to Malal, I'm wondering about a WoC "undivided" list . There's no "undivided" mark in the book, so I'm wondering how an unmarked WoC list would play .
Thank you all, in advance, for your help .
Fairly similar to a vanilla list, only that The Will of Chaos would come up more often. Items like the Banner of Rage can replicate some of the effects of marks, though some choices (Warriors with Shields) will go down a bit in relative value.

Pretty much exactly like Rothgar said. Our book is balanced well enough that the marks aren't mandatory, they're just upgrades. However, the way that the Marks are applied makes them open to abuse. For example, if you have 10 models, you are giving them all Frenzy for +3pts each. If you have a horde of 50 Marauders though, you're actually paying mere tenths of a point for Frenzy.
ndivided works out well enough, it will usually save you about 150pts in your army. In my army, going over to Unmarked on all of my regiments only saves me about 120pts including characters. That's not a huge difference actually, another 24 Marauders or 10 warriors. Certainly not worth the benefits that I gain by having the marks on my units.
In my opinion you could probably make the list work, there are still magic standards that bring value to the table. I think marauders become a big asset in an undivided list, simply because unmarked marauders can still deal tons of damage, mind you they are susceptible to fear/panic/terror without MoS or MoK.
I agree with Rothgar, without MoT those hw/shield warriors look slightly less appealing seeing as they cost so much, but honestly a 3+ armor save and 6+ ward save are still insanely good for a basic core unit, and I mean just look at there stat line...
As for playing it out...well I don't know how much of our overall strategy would be different, I might consider heavens magic a much better lore to use in this situation simply because it can move your opponents out of position and increase the likely hood of taking fewer casualties during the shooting phase.
I think it puts a bit of a handicap on our army, marks are a big part of what makes WoC so unique, but you can still make a very fluffy undivided army.
So, I'm in pretty good shape then .
Thanks all .
