I'm a bit biased towards chaos and in peticular towards wordbearers at the
moment, so they get my vote. This because they can be a very fun army since
you can do so many things with all those daemons. It is also rare to see an
all-infantry chaos marine army, I also like the wist of not taking a chaos lord
but 'just' an great unclean one.

Of the other lists both the dark eldar and death guard seem very nice and fun
to play with. I'm not to sure about the emperor's children force, although
it could make for an amazing visual army I really doubt its effectiveness due to
its low model count. The average cost of 1 model would be 40 pst, although I
could be wrong about this. I'm just a strong believer of using troop choices :wink:

I can really only comment on your Dark Eldar.

I'd trade some of those dark lances for some splinter cannons.

I'd also have my HQ with a shadow field. Thats what makes DE HQ's so scary. Sprinkle in some incubi, combat drugs, and a raider, and your set.

But, as this seems like a more foot slogging army, just take the archon with some warriors or haemonculi, and FoF.

As much as i like word bearers, you NEED power armor, you need CSM!, terminators will only get shot to pieces if their only ones on the board, and you need a squad to get close to your enemy to make many of your CC daemons effective so they dont get shot up as well, and your entire army is relying on reserves making most of it not effective until turn 4, as well, great unclean one can only act as a icon for nurgle daemons, if you want a daemon heavy army, the dark apostle is a great way to go
Out of the chaos i have to say the DG are probably the best contructed so they get my vote

With the Wordbearers I take It the Termies deepstrike to form some sort of teleporting Daemonbomb? If they don't DS the list will REALLY struggle.
As far as competetivness go's I think the DE list looks the most promising, If played to a high level they have the potential to win the whole thing, although I'd be wary of Crisis heavy Tau (JSJ Deathrains = Pain). Generally with the list you have all the major areas covered with mass AT fire from the sniper squads and great assault potential through the witches all delivered through Raiders and backed up with Ravagers so mobility Is also covered nicely. DE ftw! :D
(Although BA's get my overall vote! :wink:)

I've played DE for years and they are always fun to play with. That list looks really solid. You could probably gat away with only one portal carrier if you gave him a shadow field, and would free up some points for other goodies. DE gets my vote
