Default Thinking about starting Chaos

I've been playing Necrons for awhile and wanted to try something new, when I first started playing 40k I was either going to play Chaos, Necrons or Orks, I chose Necrons and I realized that Orks are not to my liking, so I want to start a chaos army, nothing big probably 500-750 points to start, any ideas?

Welcome to the dark side! :P

Anyway, 1 hq and two troops with assorted weapons is at least 500 or more. If you are marked (Slannesh, Nurgle, etc), the body count will drastically become even smaller.

But I would say that it is better for you to wait for the nw codex to be released before you buy your Chaos brethens.

When will the new Codex come out?


What's all this Nurgle,Slannesh bisnuess? Are they like factions, like the Space Wolves and Blood Angels in the normal SM?

Thanks for the Help!

According to GW, it should be out around late August to early September 2007.

As for the Cults, I would say they are somewhat similiar to the Special Chapters, such as the Space Wolves and Blood Angels. They have their own set of advantages (Increaed Initiative, increase toughness) and special weapons (Tzeentchian Inferno bolts, and Slaanesh Blatmasters). However, they are different that you can use them in tandem with each other (new codex suff), so you can use a Slaaneshi-marked lord to be the HQ while you take normal Chaos space marines/Cult marines.

Which would you say is the most evil? I'm looking at the World Eaters seem pretty awesome, but I want something that is despicably evil. Any Ideas?

Well, what is your idea of evil? It will help alot as each Chaos have their own 'style' of evil.

Tzeentch or Slannesh.


Tzeentch wants to kill you if you no longer have a use or are interfering with his plans./

Slannesh wants to kill you for kicks.


If you want to go the non-god way, Night Lords are a good choice as they rely on fear a lot.
