Default Army List Theme Idea-suggestions on army list

Finally done the Space Marine army I've been working on! Which means I've got another army to choose. I'm not sure which army, but chaos is definitly one I'm looking at.

Which leads to my theme. I was thinking of a ghost-type army (in fact a song (or two) inpsired this idea). What Chaos God would fit under here (if any), and what types of units should I use/ I know obviously Chaos MArines (probably the Night Vision rule to all of them), but should I use daemons? And I'd like to have any other sugggestions on what upgrades would fit into this list theme, and what units I should include/not include in this kind of army list theme.

Thanks ahead of time!

Nightlords? They can get night vision, and they specialize in Raptors(Chaos Assulties with jump packs).

You could make up a neat back story, the Ghost of ______. To hold them to their name, they use tactics such as infiltration, deepstrike and alot of Raptors(to mimic accauly ghosts)

Or if you were into it, get accaul ghost modles.

Night Lords sound like your best bet.

Or you could just make up your own army have everything infiltrate. Daemonic speed would be fun here too. As for daemons, you could go with furies and change the look of em and make em look more ghost-like. I can't think of any other daemons that would fit your ghost theme really well. Horrors and flamers of tzeentch maybe.

Ghosts eh?

I would probably lean towards Lost & the Damned for that. Ghosts and Zombies and all sounds right. But if you want to stick to codex Chaos Space Marines, you have other choices:

1 - Night Lords, as others have stated, already has night vision for you. But you won't be using daemons really. Also, you gain a lot of nice cover saves with stealth adept. Overall though, they're not exactly "ghosts."

2 - Alpha Legion is also a good option for representing the Ghosts. The reason is because you have Cultists to represent them too and lots of cheap infiltration, since ghosts won't be riding in vehicles now will they? Ghosts arrive in the fog... infiltrating... makes sense to me.

3 - Tzeentch are ghosts basically. But I'm not sure you really would want to play them as they're very different from the others. But it's an option.

4 - Death Guard could be ghostly if you made a Nurgle army. They're the undead, risen, and ghostly if you paint them up that way.

So what do you think?
What kind of army are you wanting to field?

A - Shooting?
B - Combat Based?
C - Fast? (ie: transports, heavy infiltration?)
D - Vehicles at all?

Cheers!

Assaulty-almost no shooting (but not Khorne...). I have a shooty Space Marine army, and am quite tired of shooting. I'd like to try some close combat now.

I really don't like the Lost and the Damned army list. I don't know what it is, but I just dislike them...

Further ideas would be appreciated. And thanks for all the help I've gotten so far.

Tough one, but would you like a daemon-dominated force or not?

If any daemons, only a squad or two (two at most).

Then I'll say World bearers. This is because you can make the army according to your own liking. The fluff why yopu can do this is because each apostle have a different style of combat. That means they are just following the teachings of their apostle. They also can summon the most daemons.

But they have nothing to do with ghosts...
