  1. How it looks partially depends on how competitive you are looking to be. The low LD of Chaos and the slow nature of the Warriors and marauders means you are susceptible to lots of break tests as your opponent engages your units one at a time. That means you are subject to lots of running.A good way to counter that is using the Banner of the gods instead of Rapier. Keep your units tightly packed and you can make almost your entire army stubborn. You do have some excess points in there…Light Armor for the Marauders, for example. Most wounds caused have at least -1 minimum to save, which negates the light armor, with a unit of Marauder Horsemen and flying sorcerer, 2 units of Warhounds might be a bit excessive (2 units excessive in my book, but I know I am in the minority there 🙂 )But again, that is to taste. A stubborn army with the modest magic defense you have coupled with the unpredictable nature of offensive magic should provide you some good, fun, challenging, unpredictable games. Then again, for the way you play the above list might be vastly superior.

  2. Ooooo, fully loaded tendril prince! Impressive, and I'm guessing gateway ftw?The list certainly has some real blasting potential, though as noted you also have some points to trim if you need them. Specifically, these items are not quite that useful on these units:> light armor on marauders [+15]> champ & standard on horsemen, who especially with t.axes are looking to bait/flee/harass and don't need either upgrade to do that job [+14]> champ on knights, a very hefty price tag for just +1A and the questionably useful ability to challenge [+20]These 3 changes get you 49 points, which could buy:> 2 khorne warriors [+32]> 1 ahw warrior [+17]Thus bringing both units to a 6 frontage, and a little more survivability over all, which I think 10 warriors suffer for.Good luck with the list and the tournies!- Salvage
