Default starting a warriors of chaos army

I am new to FB and start with a WoC army and was hoping that someone could give me a basic army list. I am looking for a build that is small (1000 points) and one that I can expand. LOL basically I i just dont want to buy and build/paint models that i may never use again.
Thanks for helping out a Newbie! Dustin.

well, what aspect of gaming attaracts you? do you prefer hordes of light troops? or maybe a small number of elite troops? a mix? infantry or cavlery? monsters? magic or no magic? do you want Special Characters or not? shooting or combat (not that you have much choice with WoC)? sationary "come and get me then" or agressive "in your face"? we cant realy help you untill you answer these basic questions, as one mans meat is an other mans posion.

well see i am not sure about that yet. i am just looking for a small starter army that is mostly core units that will still be usable when i know more about the game and how i want to shape my army. i just need a small army that i can get on the table so i can start learning how to play FB. i am looking at getting the Warriors Of Chaos Battalion set and add onto that. so a better question would be what would i need to add to that set to make it into a playable 1000 point army.

well, i dont own the army book, but a champion of chaos and a sorcerer scroll caddy would not not go amis. then just chose units you like. maybe some chosen or chaos spawn would be a good start.

Check out the list I made here. I have found this to be a fairly bad ass list that combines decent magic with excellent mobility and a brutal set of core choices to use as an anvil against your opponents.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Actually if you are going to pick up the battalion you can make a pretty decent army out of just that and a couple characters. Get the battalion and either 2 sorcerers or a sorcerer and an exalted hero and you have a 1000pt army right there.


If you are the last man standing, you aren't fighting hard enough.

If you're not in the market for a battallion just yet, a good starting place is to pick up an Exalted Hero blister (of any persuasion), a box of Warriors, and a box of Marauders. You'll use all of that in any army you build, and it's a good way to get started painting the models and learning the rules.
