New 40K player looking for some advice:

I'm having difficulties deciding on an army to build. I'm kind of into the idea of having a super choppy army. I also enjoy Kharn. So should I go Chaos Marines? Or are they terrible and should be shunned.

Chaos is about as choppy as it gets in the current game. At least, without sucking.

Cool stuff. What do you happen to play and why? Just out of curiosity.

CSM main + IG allies.

I run a Chaos Lord with Mark of Khorne, Juggernaut, Axe of Blind Fury, and Sigil of Corruption, which is basically the Factory Standard Khorne Lord.

Two Rhino-mounted Berzerkers as troops.

Havocs with Autocannons.


IG Infantry Platoon.


Put those together, and you get a solid Chaos army that has assault threats.

Chaos is also good because you can choose your mileage on how much you give a shit about the hobby. If you have a big plot-boner, you can have a plotty army. If you like customizing, they're fantastic for conversions and sculpts and crazy color schemes. If you just like battles, battle on - and there's plenty of general-powered units to be functional without being an ace at tactics. You also never have to worry about being ignored by GW for decades.

Going up against IG with my CSM. Anyone got any tips?

I was thinking of bringing noise marines in groups of ten. They should mow down guardsmen in droves.
