Default Chaos Lord Question

Hey guys i am just wondering what restrictions there are for upgrades for the Chaos Lord.

The Reason I am asking this is I am going to buy a plastic Lord to make a display model and i would like him to be legal for games if i pick up chaos.

Now just so you know I am not after the rules or points cost for the upgrades just what can and cannot be taken togeather.


hope you can Help,
Shas'El Blindsight

Ummm... could you narrow it down a bit more? Sure, we don't have the options of the previous Codex, but there are still too many combos and options to list here.

What were you thinking of doing?

sorry, i was a bit rushed when i originally posted,

What i am asking is if i take one piece of wargear what will it stop me from taking

e.g. taking wings/jump pack will it stop me taking a mount/bike, if i take mark of chaos X it stops me taking any other marks. etc.
(these are me just guessing ATM so correct me if I'm wrong.)


I hope that narrowed it down a bit so again if you could help me please do.

p.s. when I'm done i will be posting picks so you can see what the result is

Shas'el Blindsight,

These things are clearly stated in the new Chaos Codex. It is very much spelled out. Please simply pick up a copy, turn back to the army-list section, and bask in the (some would say sad) simplicity that is the new Chaos Lord entry.
Beyond this, nothing much has changed: You are only allowed one special movement mode, and your are allowed one ranged, and one CC weapon. It's fairly common sense.
On the flip side of this coin: Modeling with too many upgrades simply means that you can select which of the represented upgrades that you are using each time you craft an army list. That being said: There is no wrong way to model a chaos lord, except perhaps for stature. (This would by default make him a Daemon Prince in the current rules set.)

Hope that helps,
Ged

That is what i was after, thanks ged.


the reason i posted is it is near impossible to "pick up a copy" of any dex, the nearest GW store is 700 - 800 km's away and any stockist that is within a reasonable distance only order things in as needed.


Again thanks

Where do you live that your 800km's away from a GW?(go and buy the codex online might take 2 weeks to get there but its better than driving/flying 800ks)
I think the most interesting setup for a Lord is one with jump-pack/wings,pair of lightning claws,plasma pistol,and mark of khorne(i represent my lord using my raptor champ with a plasma pistol blu-tacced on ;D he costs a helluva lot but its worth it)

Northen NSW in Australia.

The reason i am not buying the codex now, as i stated in my original post, is that i am only using him as a display model.


Could a Mod lock this please?

As you wish, so mote it be! *THREAD LOCKED* - Ged
