Default Blending the Forces of Chaos... how?

Hey all (again).

After further consideration, I've decided to skip the little cultist idea and go straight to a true Chaos Space Marine army. Now, here comes the hard part: There are so many cool/different elements of Chaos, and I'm at a loss to try and blend them all. I find Khorne Berserkers hilarious and gory. But, I think the magical ways of Tzeentch are pretty cool as well. Nurgle and his followers are expensive but have some nice models, and quite frankly I don't care about Slaanesh...

Now then, I wish there was a way to combine elements of all these different sections of Chaos together into one cohesive army (where I can have World Eaters beserkers marching next to Alpha Legion Raptors and a Thousands Sons sorcerer).

And here's the hard part. Two words were probably echoing in your mind the whole while reading this: "Black Legion! Black Legion! Black Legion!" No. My other loyalist force is Black Templars, and I refuse to paint up two Space Marine armies black. Therefore, I ain't gonna build a Black Legion force (no matter how cool they actually are...)

So! Give me some ideas, suggestions, blasphemy, the works... even better try to convince me to follow a specific legion or god, as I don't want some generic force with a bunch of different Chaos models... I want specialists. I just like all of them too much. So the downsides of some legions, the pros to others... I look to your superior knowledge for guidance.

Thanks.

You can, and without playing Black legion. The gods have signed a peace treaty or something and the god vs god rule has gone out the window.

I would suggest so that you don't tick off the old fluff gits, is creating your own Renegade Chapter. This way you can pick up any unit you want and still be agreeable with the fluff, because you are the one that's making it. Plus, you get to make your own colour scheme.

If you are not feeling that creative, there is a bus load of chapters to pick from in the codex. I don't like try to convince people to playing to type of army over another. I could go on and on about how the worldeaters are da bomb(i do have 4K of them so i do like them a lot), but frankly i hate doing it because i feel like a salesman.

With the new Chaos codex what you want to do isn't a problem at all. In fact it's in the spirit of the new codex as the focus has been shifted more to renegades. I believe the idea being after 10,000 years of being devoted to Chaos not all CSMs maintain close ties with their Legions. Shifting loyalties and allegiances and lust for power can create mish mash groups of various cult and legion roots.

You could play night lords, or some other undevided army?

And as stated before, you don''t need black legion to field Khorne Berzerkers and thousand sons; Just make a warband made of different renegade chapters!

Dare I suggest it but it sounds like Red Corsairs could fit the bill pretty well. You can use a mix of marked, unmarked and cult units and even take the fairly awesome special character who's name just wandered out of my brain.... The Red Corsairs one... :-[

I was considering one of the undivided armies as well, possibly Red Corsairs (I believe Huron Blackheart was the name Falstead was searching for...) or Alpha Legion... kinda where I'm leaning towards onw, since my "test" World Eaters marine came out with way too much red. I don't think even Khorne himself would've wanted that much red.

I beleive Word Bearers are also undevided like black legion, and red is their color. I do not know if you have to paint the cult troops red though.
