    I want them to get a campaign map working with more than two people.

    The fun we could have, especially with unit sharing/npc army command in every fight.

    If only they could do it so every human player had the same turn, somehow...

    the waiting for your turn thing is tedious even with 2 players.

    I've given up on hardcore RPing all the time, getting quite a few more wins now. When in doubt, flying death squad (chaos lord on dragon, sorcerer on manticore, 2x manticores).

    I had a great matchup against Empire this morning. Dude baited my flying squad into charging his Luminark that was sniping us. Netted my Lord, and then pulled the Silver Bullets out of stalk. Between the Luminark and the Silver Bullets he melted. Thankfully I brought a Lore of Death Sorcerer and 2x overcasted Spirit Leechs on the Luminark nuked it pretty bad.

    Chaos Marauders with GW aren't bad if you throw them 2-3 chevrons. People love to spam AP units against Chaos so it's fun to bring units with low armor and decent melee attack/defense.

    I got absolutely nuked the other day against a chaos build like that, absolute nightmare. He had the everwatcher bouncing around all my ranged units and I couldnt keep him pinned with 2 slayers, 2 hellcannons nuked a unit of ironbreakers I had. then a bunch of GW marauders demolished my GW longbeards.

    there is a couple of flavours of AP in infantry form, greatweapons (including greatswords etc) and halberds which are anti large. Greatweapons have a faster attack speed iirc than halberds

    I have a new pet hate as dorf, arachnarok queen. Spams baby spiders so much and no way to hold it down. You can kill it with trollhammers quite nicely but good luck getting a shot off when it strolls through your frontlines and spams spiders on your ranged.

    Best option is to cannon its face at long range but that restricts you quite a lot.

    My new fave dorf unit (apart from grumbling guard) is the gob lobber. That thing is fucking A+

    My go to for fighting the Dawi as Chaos is Kholek and Chaos Warriors with GW. I'll use a Hellcannon to get whatever the most expensive infantry is down to less than 50% HP before the fight starts. I'll also use armored trolls for flanking and a unit of throwing axe horses to harass and break routing units. 2-3 units of Aspired Champs as well in case they bring the ethereal units.

    My worst match up is generally against Greenskins. The Black Orcs trade well against Chaos infantry and Nasty Skulkers can do lots of things to your flanks. Goblin Big bosses are also cheap and can focus down your lord and heroes.

    Have you considered a terror build for fighting GS? I know that black orcs are immune to terror but isolating them and surrounding them with monsters/dragon ogres would take them down fast. I would imagine that kholek and a shaggoth would absolutely murderize a big spider in no time at all too.

    Most smart greenskin player anticipate the terror build and bring a shit ton of black orcs. Black orcs trade well, even against Chosen, thanks to their high melee attack. Plus they bring that god damn spider and boar boi bigguns who can make short work of your monsters. I've had much better success using balanced armies against GS. And I bring the Lore of Death to mitigate their attack and spirit leech their leadership.

    Here's my general builds as Chaos:

    VS WElves = Forsaken, 2 Chaos Halberds, 3 Champs, Lord on Dragon, Fire Sorceror on Manticore, 2x Feral Manticores

    VS Empire = Same as above although I might bring Lore of Death instead. I also might mix in some marauders with the forsaken to have a larger army.

    VS Beastmen = GW Mauraders, 4 Chaos Halberds, Prince Sigvald, and then I either bring giants or manticores to cycle charge the Gorebulls.

    VS Dawi = GW Mauraders, Hellcannon, Kholek, Fire Sorcerer on horse, Forsaken to flank, and 1-2 units of throwing axe horsemen to flank/break routers

    VS Bretonnia = Spam Forsaken to sprint to their infantry and annihilate them. Bring airforce to overwhelm Leoncour.

    VS Greenskins = GW Mauraders, 2 Forsaken for flanking, 3-4 Halberds for anti-large, Chaos Lord on Dragon, Death Sorcerer on Manticore, 2x Manticores

    VS Chaos = Archeon the Everchosen and Chosen. THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!

    I didnt mean a single shaggoth, I meant kholek and a shaggoth. I honestly bet they would destroy a spider quite handily in no time at all.

    Everytime there's a spider there's also 2 goblin big bosses, an orc warboss and 2 orc boi bigguns.

    All that poison and anti large is painful.

    That was straight up I had 19 spiders + warboss vs 19 shaggoths + kholek and chaos got completely destroyed

    fkn hell, 'Very Hard' is far more difficult than 'Legendary' for the Empire. Orks and Beastmen will raze your villages within the first 10 turns unlike Legendary.

    I gave up on Legendary because it forces you to autoresolve every battle since you suffer a -4 or 8 morale penalty in manual battles, so it was pretty boring. Got 50 turns in and said fuck it.

    The Spider queen is stupid good. For Orcs I normally go bunch of black orcs, Spider Queen, Giant for AP and Grimgor with Gritznak for AP and just roll straight into them. It can kind of get kited but the Spider missiles make that a dangerous proposition.
    meh
