Hey man if the girls are putting out I'll fight somebody in plot armor.

Anarkitty I have always imagined that under the armor the Warriors of Chaos still look mostly human...ish. At least enough so that they can participate in activities other than marching around and roaring. I would imagine they probably spend a lot of time maintining their weapons and armor, as they are gifts from their Gods. Each Warrior likely spends time modifying and personalizing their gear, and probably has hobbies and talents of their own. Agreed though, depending on the alignment of the Warrior or tribe, certain activities are likely more prevalent.

Khorne: I would imagine that outside of the most dedicated berserkers even Khornate Warriors take some down time. They probably are fond of hunting, and I would imagine entire tribes particiating in some sort of Fight Club, to keep their skills sharp without thinning their numbers too much.

Tzeench: Naturally Tzeench warriors likely spend most of their free time plotting and scheming and counter-scheming. When they want to relax, I imaging they probably favor intricate and detailed activities like macrome or scrimshaw, or strategic games like chess or go.

Nurgle: Like their god, Nurgle followers are generally jovial and personable. I'm picturing all manner of games and hobbies and amusementswith a slightly decaying and diseased twist. Outside of the ooze and decay, I'm sure a Nurgle settlement looks very similar to any other Norse village.

Slaanesh: Aaah, Slaanesh. Slaanesh settlements, such as they are, likely resemble the bastard children of the Marquis de Sade's id and Xerxes' tent from the 300, and everything is buried under massive piles of cocaine. Like, enough to ski down.

That's how I see it anyway.

But yeah, I mean it about the cocaine.

Team Khorne... kill you if you win...or if you lose

Slaanesh... are great at falling over and 'pretending' they are hurt
Nurgle... no one plays them due to the smell

..................:lau gh:

Though I imagine Slaanesh dudes tackling each other (preferably when not wearing clothes) or letting themselves be tackled

Brother Arnold Well, LukeValantine pretty much summed up what the actual Chaos Warriors do already, so I'll do the same for Marauders.

Khorne: What spare time? If you're Khorne worshipper, then any moment you're not hacking someone's head off in the name of the Blood God is a moment wasted. Thus, a Khornate Marauder will be simply running around yelling and hacking people apart inside a red mist. They also gamble with Tzeentchians a lot, as this activity often leads to feelings of rage and subsequently violence.
Tzeentch: A Tzeentchian Marauder will be unravelling the secrets of the universe, and riddling his fellows to madness. They would also be practising some magic, and gambling due to the random chance involved. Sometimes, a Tzeentchian will delight in talking absolute gibberish to make their peers panic as they think their friend has succumbed to the greatest risk of worshipping Tzeentch.
Nurgle: A Nurglite Marauder would be looking after his weeping sores and buboes with the same care a mother gives a child. He could also be chasing around Slaaneshi Marauders, the Slaaneshis trying to avoid "Nurgle cooties."
Slaanesh: This is spare time? A Slaanesh Marauder's spare time is eternal! They just do all they can to get some twisted pleasure. We're talking drugs and torture here. They also write plays, novels and poems, and compose symphonies whilst painting the greatest artworks you can see in the Warhammer world, including the famed Moaning Lisa. Anything else is behind a curtain, and you can hear sounds of passion and thumping as it's going on. For the slowest among you, they'd be having sex. Oh, and don't forget the running away from "Nurgle cooties"!

Stephen_Newman I thought they hunted METAL BAWKSES!

oblivion8 well I never thought about it before I read the description for vlitch the cursling. It kinda describes some things for you which was interesting, his brother was good at hunting, and blaha blah. They also have wives and children obviously so I'm sure Lukevalentine isn't off, just imagine a norse viking tribe, perhaps with a little more barbaric rituals though.
As for the warriors in armour? I can imagine that up until battle they just sit around and carve wooden knives or some shit like that. Although that makes more sense for the undivided ones, the khorne warriors might go out hunting, or on big game hunts. The nurgle warriors probably stay a fair bit away from the normal tribes cuz I dont think they would want their diseases. Tzeentch probably would just do the contemplative stuff, while slaanesh would do drugs or the like as someone said before.
