I think the WoC models are the coolest GW produce.

My favourite models are:

Galrauch - either as himself or as a mount for a lord,
Sex-Snake Slaaneshi Lord/Hero/ Sorc
Juggernaut Lord/ Hero
Warriors
Mounted Marauders
Chosen
Knights
Trolls and Dragon Ogres
Giant
Shaggoth

I also like the Troll King's rules, even if I only took a few trolls.

My question is: Do you think the above would make a good army if thrown together properly? Obviously it won't all fit in a 2000/ 2500 list.

I ask because I only have the 7th BRB, and it sounds like the rule changes and lore changes have been quite a big deal.

Thanks for any thoughts and +rep.

Warriors x10000000000000000000000000000 is the way forwards, with possibly some kind of hard hitters like Ogres/Dragon Ogres or possibly some cavalry.

Large blocks of Chaos warriors are really quite nasty to fight, you really need infantry blocks in 8th edition to work, with the rest simply support units.

Oh and a chaos sorceror with the Lore of Death or fire can be very funny!

I just say buy what you want, then build your list around that model. For example, I bought 180 Boyz and 9 Killa Kanz simply because it was possible to use them in 40K, even though I knew I would have to choose between the 2 :(. Of course, this won't work unless you have a tight budget...

By far your best choices are the Warriors and Chosen. Take them and build your army around them and you won't go wrong.

Thanks Wraith. Do you mean best choices from my list, or in the book?

Wraith, I believe, is correct in that the most effective choices in the Warriors book are the Chosen and the Warriors themselves, especially if backed up by a warshrine.

Thing is, almost anything in the warriors book is good. Trolls, Ogres, Giants, Dragon Ogres are all fun and really scare the whoosits out of your opponent.
