Split the difference and only field Tzeetch!

Just kidding, a bias on my part. Traditionally Khorne rocks all. Work his forces in first, later expand into any other chaos gods. This is presuming that the blood god is still as cool as he's been in EVERY other chaos release in 40K or WFB.

Khorne is probably the weakest in the CSM codex, by a decent amount imo.

He is probably the best in this one though, and I think power weapons on str 4 will probably win the day over rending. No need to look at it like that though. Take units from all 4 gods if you need to.

Realy in this codex? That's increadable, mindboggling even. GW sometimes nerfs things that are too popular but Khorne was one of their safe-spots.

Khorne is great and by far not the weakest. I played Khorne for many years in Fantasy and took it in the 41 millinium. Give the berzerkers fire support to get them into combat and let them take over! I think the weakest power in this codex edition would be Nurgle, although still good. It seems that with each new Chaos codex release they make 1 power "top dog". This codex it would happen to be Tzeentch, IMO.

I'll try and run some stats, but right now I don't have the demons codex.

I'd focus more on getting what you like for now, then learning what works for tourny play later on.

You are still pretty new to the game and could learn alot more about the basics and so on before worrying about tournament play.

Righteous. Presuming that is the case.

i completely disagree with Tzeentch being #1. They shoot well, and take a few hits. But they are still pretty easy to take out, you really have to balance out with this army, otherwise the drop WILL hurt you. If you go only Tzeentch close combat elements will tie you up very quickly.

While one of the stronger individual powers, you are really hurting yourself by going exclusive to one power (or even two or three).

it's like looking at the marine armylist and not allowing yourself to use 1/4 to a 1/2 of it. Just doesn't make sense.
