I agree with the above post. Black legion or any other Undivided legion that you like the look of is a great place to start. As also stated above, it can help you decide which units you like, which you don't like, and if you like them all, or more than one, keep to undivided ;D

But aside from chaos marks, there are no rules as to what you can or can't take. Heck, you could take Alpha legion, Black legion, Night lords and World Eaters in the same army if you like. The only difference between legions is that they look different. The only official rule I can think of is that a Sorcerer can't take the mark of Khorne, and if a Daemon prince has the mark of Khorne, then it may not count as a psyker(sp?). But you may want to add realism to your army through fluff. I.e, a Night Lords army shouldn't take obliterators, because Night Lords favour fast, swift attacks, while Obliterators are slow, and cumbersome, but there are no rules against it.

As a Night Lord player I feel like I need to throw in a little disclaimer here. Night Lords are all about fear and terror. Granted, they are frequent users of hit and run guerilla tactics, but almost nothing in the Chaos list is more frightning than a bunch of Obliterators to balance your big MoS-equipped squad of Raptors. ;D

Of course everyone is free to choose their own army, I'm just saying the fluff swing both ways.
