I have an old chaos beast master, from the days where they acted the same as Skaven/Dark Elves ones do
The model is a chaos warrrior with a whip as you would expect
It was a challenge to find a way to use it in an army, but having just got the Warriors of Chaos rule book Ive noticed the Whip of Subversion
I think run him and a smallish unit as monster hunters might be abit of fun
Also Chaos Knights, Im guessing no one runs these with Lances, if thats the case, do people actually model them with lances or hand weapons?
I model my knights with hand weapons and use the lances as Halberds for my warriors.
You could use the beast master for a warshrine or chariot or something.
I have mine in a unit of war hounds, four old metal chaos hounds and a hell hound from asmodee's helldorado range which is about half the length of the other dogs. The handler sits on the back half of the cavalry base so it looks like he's whipping his war hounds into the battle.
the whip of subversion is kinda crappy IMO. problem is that wounding something with multiple wounds @ str 5 is kind of a long shot. Using it to hunt monsters with is a terrible idea as the monster will not likely be next to anything it can attack.
I like Seth-ra's use, fits and adds flavor, tho such an old and rare model should be showcased on something bigger/more intimidating than dogs.
I honestly see no reason you can't use him like he was inteded; as a handler for monsters. Just take a character on a monsterous mount and pretend that he is on the back of the monster riding it, insted of behind the monster whipping it. Manticore, dragons, deamonic cav, whatever you want. also saves the trouble of doing mounts for each and every one of those options =P
