just started an infantry based mortal army and was thinking of adding 2 chariots as flanking units. Are they worth it?? How well do they do in battle?? Also, should I put a mark on them? (I use nurgle, slaanesh and undivided in my army). My 1000 pt core looks something like this:
Aspiring champion - undivided, 2 HW, CA
16 Chaos warriors - full cmd, 2hw, ha
16 chaos warriors - full cmd, hw, sh, ca, mk o N
25 marauders - hw, sh, la, full cmd
I think they are one of the worst chariots in the game for their points. You don't even get very much for the points you pay over other chariots. You get WS 5 on the riders, S 4 horses, and an extra armour save. I do not think this is worth the points.
I personally like chosen a lot and I think they are very worth there points, because for very little points, you get an extra armour save and an attack. I would suggest upgrading one of your units to chosen.
Once again this is my personal opinion, but I dispise the aspiring champion. The exalted champion is just that much better for his points. I play agains elves a lot, and I hate having to hit on 4s with the aspiring champion.
Hope this helps.

i think the chaos chariots are ok, but do not use 2. heres why, they are a lot of points and they are worse than DE chariots.
so i would use chosen knights instead. but if you need a support unit for a block of foot troops chariots are one of the best.
genrally charriots dont make good flank units cause you need 2 on the flanks to negate ranks. if you also chariots are quite slow. and you need speed for flankage
When you combine Speed and Power you get Lightning.
I agree that the Mortal chariots are quite lame and quite expensive points wise. However I find chariots quite usefull so I would use two beasts of chaos chariots, this would just take up two special choices. But its up to you.
Hummm, I guess I could use the beast of chaos chariots...they are cheaper than the chaos one. But I still think I will use chariots instead of knights (I guess I'll reserve them for my 2000 pt army) and if I still have the points I will take a unit of chosen. Thanks for the feedback!
see thats the right idea you got there. it all depends on the size of the battle. i usually play 2500 point battles so i take 2 chariots and they can do a lot of damage when deployed and used right.(I guess I'll reserve them for my 2000 pt army) and if I still have the points I will take a unit of chosen.
If you dont use your units right then everything you have would suck. but i do agree that they should be a little cheaper for what you get.
The knights are well worth upgrading to chosen, they may seem like a lot of points but opponents have to get some luck to take them down.
