What would be the best way to take down chaos knights with there AS and a 3+ ward against shooting?
also i think my mate makes them imune to physc too wot is the best way to take them down? or is there none just dance around them?
Multiple charges in flank and front/rear is the ideal way.
Chaos Knights cause fear and they do have magical attacks ( unless he gave them lances ).
I'd use wild riders of kornus and dryads/wardancers probably. Maybe warhawk riders.
Wild Riders are quite deadly and if back up will beat the knights overall.
or else...go for waywatchers with their killing blow and marchblocking.
many ways to take chaos knights out. its not abt matching power with power but power with brain
do you reckon a tree man in front and wardancers in the side with 3 nobles in the unit will win easily?
If I were you I wouldn't place a treeman infront of the knights. I'll tell you why...
Chaos Knights have str5 2 attacks each and those attacks are MAGICAL...so they will hurt your treeman ( negating spirit ward save and bringing his armour to 5 + )
plus chaos knights will have a 4+ armour save against the treeman's attacks ( with modifiers)
If there is a hero with the knights then I suggest you keep your treeman as far as possible from the knights xD
3 nobles in one wardancer unit ??? O.o nah man
try marchblocking the knights and pull off multiple charges on them, should work wonders. it all depends how his army is..
get a good unit of dryads (10~12) up front simply to pin the unit in place, then get a flank or rear charge with 7~8 wardancers. I think you can take them down in a turn depending on how many of the he fielded! There is no need for a noble, if he has a hero in there he will challenge you, and you will lose the noble if you accept. Our nobles arent really combat orientated.
the other way to go is to get some waywatchers behind them keep shooting and marchblocking. eventually he will lose that.
Best thing I've found?
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
how do the chaos knights have a 3+ ward against shooting? It is not possible in the chaos mortals book.

I have a bud that uses 5 knights and I do a couple of things to take them out:
1. Waywatchers are my first choice: you set them up behind them and you should get at least 2 rounds of shooting and them if your luck holds out u might even get 3 because if you go first you shoot him, then his turn he turns around, you shoot him again and then another stand and shoot against him 18 shots hitting on 2+ with killing blow should take out a few and even if they charge you then they are taken out of action for 2 turns roughly.
2. Wardancers and Eternal Guard: now if you don't like eternal guard then this one prolly won't matter to you, but I like them. Anyways I take a unit of 20 EG and give them the banner of Midwinter and the turn the knights are going to charge them I use the banner and they become unbreakable and they get stuck in and then I always take 2 units of 7 WD and they are held back on the flanks and the next turn charge and use the KB dance and if noting else you got one heck of a combat res on them. THis unit of EG is awsome with a Warbanner and a tooled up Noble that is just there to survive and give stubborn to the unit to bog units down and with WS 5 they do some dmg back too.
Hope this helps.
