Warriors of Chaos 2250 points


I have been pouring over the Warriors of Chaos army book recently in the attempt to get my first Warriors of Chaos 2250 point army ready for its first tournament outing in February.  The Warriors of Chaos army book has a lot more effective magic items, gifts, etc than the Ogre Kingdoms and far less restrictions.  Because of the better choices it has taken me a lot longer to build an initial list!

Chaos Warriors x 13 (283 pts)

Chaos Spawn (55 pts)

Even though the Daemon Prince has a few short comings it is a MUST HAVE for my Warriors of Chaos army.  The Sorcerer Lord on Dragon may be more effective, but I really like the Be’Lakor miniature.

The main problem with a Daemon Prince is that it doesn’t have access to any Magic Items, therefore no access to Dispel Scrolls or Magic Attacks. So to overcome this problem I have included a Level 2 Sorcerer equipped with the Infernal Puppet, this should help keep the Deamon Prince alive. Because the Infernal Puppet is 35 points I couldn’t have a Dispel Scroll, so another Level 1 Sorcerer equipped as a Scroll Caddy to aid in Magic Defence is also in the army.  Yes I know the army is a “Gateway for the Win” build, but what else can you do with a Daemon Prince with no magical attacks, armour, etc?

The Black Tongue is on the Battle Standard Bearer as both hero level Sorcerers are loaded with arcane items.

This list will probably change through out the year, as many “comp’ed” tournaments don’t allow such combo’s as the Black Tongue and Infernal Puppet.  I have also seen Tendrils of Tzeentch banned in some tournaments.

Every thing in the army is painted apart from the Chaos Knights and Marauder Horsemen, currently only have 19 days before its first tournament outing to get these completed.  Plus I want to get at least a couple of practice games in before then.  If I fail in getting the Marauder Horsemen painted for the tournament then I could swap in some Chaos Ogres, but that will be a last resort.

  1. The character setup looks pretty good if you are going for a Gateway machine. I'm not sold on your troops though. I just can't seem to make those blocks of Warriors work – they are too slow!I would at least get your foot troops MoS. You don't want Khorne as it will allow them to be lead around by their nose and they just don't have the movement to do that well.

    You can’t take two dispell scrolls.
