Well, this is a stopgap until the next army book comes out.

Since Daemons came out, the Hordes of Chaos codex is essentially obsolete. So GW decided to give us a PDF to survive with until they manage to make the new models and books for the Mortals of Chaos. I am also surviving on that copy right now.

Saw that at the weekend, looks terrible! Hardly any magic items at all and the weapon upgrades are so expensive!

It's a stop-gap list. Sort of a souped up Ravening Hordes list. When the proper book comes out, it will be better. Until then, we have to make do with a band-aid army list.

Its been out for SOME time now mate. Plus they were nice enough to post rules for BOTH chaos giant and hellcannon. So it is officially a free book.

The codex is far better then it was. Besides the fact that it is FREE stand in, the codex shifted to a better, balanced approach.

- Warriors, knights & chariots are FAR cheaper and so are their marks and their chosen upgrades.
- Wizards got great items. Staff of change now is far Superior then it was, plus you get a +1 to cast staff and dice booster. They are simple, to the point without any BS. Yeah, you don't have a bag load of dice, but you have a better control over them. the only bad thing is loss of special lores. But I have a feeling that these will be back in real book.
- Aspiring champs are T5 now! They are 5 points expensive then my Scar-vet and now are superior then him in every stat but Str and attacks. (LD is army average, just like mine btw)
- Hellcannon is 100% legal.
- Daemon Prince was made extremely good. And his marks are great. Plus he is NOT a large target, so there is no way to pick him out. An if he is wizard he can try to roll (with 4 possible rolls its 2/3 chances) a "Flaming sword" and have 6 S8 attacks hitting on 2+.
- BSB with stubborn banner like this can't be found in ANY other army. With it, re-rollable L8 stubborn on everything with in 12''. If you have a lord, he becomes stubborn confers stubborn LD and its stubborn LD9... Ohh and top this off, BSB can take any basic gear like all new BSBs, so he is a competent warrior while being ubber BSB.

Those are the few major pluses you get. Seriously, codex became far better. And you still get very good items. Yeah there isn't much choice. But mind you, my book (lizards) have about same amount of weapons and armor and arcane items(technically i have only 2 acrane items as third is useless) as you do, and I have a legal actual book, not stand in. You don't see me complaining. :

Walk Tall everyone!!!!!

i think the list isn't to bad but
almost all magic items suck (where's my rending blade)
no furies (o look an empire artillery battery and i got 1 unit knights to disable them great)
hellcannon is still way to expensive for what it does
daemon prince can not be equip ed with chaos gifts any more (what do you mean my nurgle daemon prince can't vomit any more)
khorne and tzeench marks no longer provide dice

At the first 'skim read' the list looks pretty restricted and boring. It's not until you delve deeper and look at interesting combos; such as Red_dog stated; that you see how good this can be!

Yeah, we'll just have to use fast cavalry like most other armies :-\ what a shame :

they have just made them even more powerfull then ever un my opinion and im going to use this as an example. For 200pts you can get an exalted champion with a great wepoan riding a demonic mount and wearing the crown of everlating conquest. he has 4 S7 attacks and an 18" charge range and he has a 2+ armour save and a 4+ regen save.
