PiotrW Posted October 21, 2020 Share Posted October 21, 2020 Okay, here's a bit of a question / challenge for experienced Chaos players: Playing Chaos in AoS isn't my first priority - I'm building a Skaven army, but they are their own thing... That said, I see that I'm slowly amassing a solid collection of Chaos stuff: all those Darkoath people, Warcry warbands, new Chaos monsters etc. And I'm wondering: could an army be built around them? I initially thought about making a Slave to Darkness army, but I learned that none of the units I own actually counts as StD Battlelines. I'd need to pick up some Chaos Warriors / Marauders / Knights... the problem is, I'm not really enamoured with the old Chaos miniatures. Marauders are just... extremely dated, the regularly-available Knight and Warriors are a bit better, but also somewhat old. I could get the StD Start Collecting box - the monster-mounted Chaos Lord is very nice indeed. The Warriors in that box are okay (even though they have only one weapon configuration available) - but the Knights break my suspension of disbelief due the idea they are supposed to use their lances in close combat... And overall, aside from the Chaos Lord, I'm just not sold on the "big evil guys in full armour" visual for Chaos worshippers. So, my question is: is it actually possible to build a Chaos list using the Chaos stuff I actually like: Darkoaths, Warcry crazies etc.? Here's what I have: Darkoath Warqueen & Darkoath Chieftain Theddra & the Godsworn Hunt 3 Chaos warbands from Warcry (possibly 4, if I manage to get the Catacombs box) Ogroid Myrmidon + Fomoroid Crusher + Mindstealer Sphiranx Furies & Raptoryx Gaunt Summoner I also plan on keeping the Slaanesh warband from the coming WHU starter. If I have some spare money, I could add the Chaos Lord from Start Collecting! box, *maybe* the Chaos Warriors from the same box - I could also add some Daemonettes, Nurglings or Kairic Acolytes. Varanguard and Mutalith Vortex Beast are also a possibility. Sooooo... could any Chaos-themed list legal for Matched play be made out of these? Any suggestions?
