    Khorne in CC. Its hard to control, but can destroy entire front lines with ease.

    Nurgle for fear. Who doesn't want that.

    Tzeentch for magic. Level 2 and level 4 heros that can own in CC? I'll take that.

    Slaanesh...dunno.

    It all depends on what your going for. They each have their advantages/disadvantages, but since I'm a follower of the Blood God, I'm going to be selfish - Khorne.

    It really depends on what unit you're looking at.

    For instance, Khorne and Nurgle are great on units of warriors, though with the former you need a little control. Mark of Slaanesh on regular warriors isn't nearly as powerful, though it does have its uses. Mark of Tzeentch hurts the warriors, but benefits the army.

    In contrast, the mark of Khorne is downright aweful on chariots, as a competent opponent will wreck them in terrain. Nurgle is decent on a chariot, but loses the advantage of numbers. Slaanesh on a chariot is decent, but Tzeentch probably gets the most out of chariots.

    Now on a Shaggoth, the mark of Slaanesh is horribly powerful, and Khorne is a liability.


    So really it's different on each unit. However other army bonuses apply all around. A Slaaneshi army has some of the best spells in the game. A Tzeentch army will have some badass magic, and Khorne will be nigh-impervious to magic. Nurgle will have fear all over the place, and some potent heros.

    Daemons are another story yet again. Finally you should consider point costs. Slaanesh isn't as powerful as Khorne/Nurgle, but it costs far less. So overall it's impossible to pick a "most powerful" mark.

    98% of the population actually believes these stupid statistics. If you're part of the 2% of humanity with a brain, put this in your profile.

    There's really no 'best mark' each mark has its ups and downs, as Badger already detailed. Think about it, if one mark was best, who would buy the other ones?

    Khorne Lord is way right.
    There isn't a best mark. Its all up to personal preference.
    If you enjoy a magic based army, Tzeentch is crackin'
    For CC, Khorne = Splended
    For Sexual Orientation Reasons, Slaanesh is the Momma'
    And for giving someone smallpox, Nurgle is "Da Beast"

    Those last two aren't very tactical choices lol.
    Slaanesh is for defensive psychology, Nurgle is offensive psychology.

    Just go with what suits you best, either for the flavour or the effect. It's really quite a personal preference thing.

    That's what I did.

    I wanted in-your-face violence and no-nonsense killing machines.

    I ended up with Khorne.:w00t:
