Default Warriors of Chaos: 1000pts

Hello Warhammer fans

I still quite new to fantasy, so much help is needed.

Exalted Hero with shield, Chaos Steed and Sword of Might
pts 151

Chaos Warriors(12) with Shields, Standard and Champion
pts 216

Chaos Warriors(12) with Shields, Standard and Champion
pts 216

Chaos Marauders(16) with Flails, Standard and Champion
pts 96

Chaos Knights(5)
pts 200

Chaos Chariot
Pts 120

The plan is pretty simple, the hero will join the knights. The Chariot and Knights will be placed on the flanks, while the infantry will place in the middle and hold the enemy in place, while the chariot and knights flank them.

I haven't bought any troops yet, i only have a few Marauders from my path of glory days. Is the chariot any good? should i pick a better flanker? Should i get some tougher units?

Well, welcome to the wonderful world of Warhammer Fantasy! Anywho, just like CSM, Chaos Warriors are a little hard to play with in 1000pts due to their high points cost. I would suggest exchanging the Exalted Hero for a Sorcerer. Your Chaos Sorcerer will probably be just as powerful in close combat as any other hero on the table, plus you've got magic to throw around. Also, your marauders could probably work better with light armor and shields than flail, but that's your choice. Also, war-hounds would be a plus if you could fit them in.

Hey glad to see another Warriors player!

Just a bit of C+C for you to digest. Personally I can only get chariots to be used effectively in pairs, so i would take this out to be better able to expand your army. Also unless your equipping out your warriors with Mark of Khorne and halberds/dual hw's they really shouldnt be used as a hammer unit. More of an anvil. So i would take one of these units out too.

Firstly, make give your remaining unit of warriors a musician to fill out the command. And I would also reccommend taking either halberds or an additional hw's along with a shield. Secondly, I use chaos marauders as sort of a solid block of cheap infantry, quite the opposite of what you have here. To be used effectively i would up this unit to at least 20 with hw, shields, light armour, and full command. You want to pump out combat res with these guys, not kills. Remember that in fantasy its not always about how much you kill!

With the other extra points you have i would recommend putting in a sorceror, a unit of warhounds, marauder horsemen, and marks. My favorite combo is a unit of chaos knights with mark of khorne using a unit of warhounds as a screen. and you really should put in a wizard if not for offensive purposes but also for some much needed magical defense.

Good gaming man!

Ok I have taken some of your suggestions and i have made up this list.

Exalted Hero with Shield, biting blade and Favor of the Gods
Pts:124

Chaos Sorcerer with Mark of Tzeentch and Dispel Scroll

Marauders of Chaos(20) with Shield, light armour and full command
pts 140

Marauders of Chaos(20) with Shield, light armour and full command
pts 140

Warriors of Chaos(11) with additional Hand weapon and full command
Pts 206

Chaos Warhounds(10)
pts 60

Chaos Knights(5)
pts 200

Ok, less speed more bodies. Hero will join the warriors, Marauders will be the base defense while the warriors and knights will be the hunters, Warhounds will be tie up and screen.

Nice, but unfortunately a magic weapon doesn't count as a hand weapon unless noted otherwise, so no extra attack with the additional hand weapon. Switch it with a shield, or buy a bigger weapon if you want.
