Default Ensorcelled Weapons or Lances? Warriors of Chaos

So I just bought my Chaos Knights but I don't know if they should carry the Lances or the Ensorcelled weapons. So just give me a direct answer and a sentence why the other weapon eats the other one.

Well, go with the Ensorcelled weapon. Reason being is because

1)They are magical weapons

2)In subsequent turns, the ensorcelled weapon will be more advantageous than the lance as the lance have lost its +2 charging strength and thus the Knights have to rely on their base strength of 4, while the ensorcelled weapon give the +1 strength bonus every round.

3)It comes with the model, and thus essentially it is free. For the lances you have to pay for it.

I'll second Crisis_Vyper. Although your knights should be annihilating anything they charge, there while come times when you'll get stuck in tarpit unit or enemy will get the charge on you. For these instances, the ensorcelled weapons will be your best friend.

I'm going to third this. Especially for playing in tournaments when you face ethereal creatures, or you have mark of khorne and are baited. Although you may wish it true, you will not always break the enemy on the first turn (or face an unbreakable unit) or you may get charged yourself! In these cases it is always better to have that constant str5. Also, as Crisis_Vyper pointed out, they're free.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Anything carved with Ruens (God bless Manowar and whoever did their "Odin" voiceover) is righteous and manly, and thus should be used.

Unless they're Slaneesh, in which case they are required by law to carry around the giant phallic object.
