Default warriors of chaos army

I am thinking of getting a warriors of chaos army, for the new rules. I am wondering is it better to have one chaos god centred army or a mix?

regards Bob

I usually go all-nurgle but Tzeench has more uses under 8th ed. (regular chaos warriors get a 5+ ward save in combat). The new fear rules however are really good when combined with Nurgle- a failed fear test means they fight back at WS0 allowing them no return attacks

As usual, the most competitive answer would be multi-god, but with Warriors of Chaos, monogod is usually not a problem, unlike 40k. All the marks bring good benefit.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

I actually run an army that consists of all four gods forces and I do quite well with it. Mono themed armies can do just as well but I like having the variety.

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?

Mixed armies are fine, but I've found that having a single god means the army has more synergy with itself, is more generally thematic, and in my personal experience, ultimately ends up fighting better.

Mono-God can work fine, as long as you always include a couple wizards, even in the mono-Khorne list. Relying only on magic resistance alone probably won't cut it.

Especially with the new rules for Magic Resistance. Just a ward save against wounds, which won't help when your guys suddenly become as skilled as Empire state troops, lose part of their armor save or turn into gold.
