Are you going to ally to any particular Chaos God?.

Still you will need another box of warriors next I would think. I would arm them with Halberds if your first squad have hand weapons and shields. I like to base my Chaos armies around a solid core of Chaos Warriors.

Some cavalry is always nice once you have enough infantry, either a small hard hitting unit of Chaos Knights or a unit of Maraurder Horsemen to harry your opponent.

If you like the idea of your force staying together then how about a chariot> as it can't march. It will hit hard just before the rest of your force arrives, It should either break the enemy when it charges or at least hold due to the casualties it causes, then your infantry will be perfectly placed to support it in subsequent turns when it will need the help (as no more impact hits).

Then once you have either the chariot of cavalry you can go for something a little more interesting. Ogres particularly Lead Belchers as they provide some very helpful firepower. There are always Minatours or one of my favourites Dragon Ogres with great weapons. Or you could go for the very popular Chaos Spawn.

I agree with him. I play an almost identical army to the one you just described. I wouldn't bother going for Marauder Horsemen if I were you, Chaos Knights are much better. The Chariot and Spawn are both worth getting.

Another thing that you might want is a sorcerer. I find it is really good to quickly take out any nasty shooters they have and often strong enough to break up their lines. very useful in an almost totally close combat army...

Good for you. Fantasy is a really good game

When you play chaos, remember there is more to the tactics than charging straight at them (despite what many people might tell you).

The way things go is this. LOTR is for beginers to introduce them to GW. Then comes 40k, as it is easier to play and full of guns and explosions, who can resist? Then comes fantasy. It is for the people who like more tactics in their games, and also for the people who like the good old fashioned LOTR style stuff. Fantasy is the far superior of the three.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I take my hat off to you elflord, except for the fact that that didn't apply to me at all! I started off on Fantasy, will soon be starting a Necron army and am never going to play LOTR

I think it just doesn't really attract that many people now that the films are finished. In fact, the reason they put the prices up was purely because the LOTR was doing so badly.

Thats true, but We both started playing before LOTR. I also started on fantasy. But the stuff I said was to reel in new gamers.
