And now ... for something completely different ...

Who is your favorite Warhammer Fantasy Chaos God :icon_question:

Feel free to explain.

Mine is Malal, I like the idea of black and white as his colors, and he seems to be the epitome of complete evil.

Hands down Tzeentch. The changer of ways is the best mastermind ever invented.  Can’t imagine a more horrible yet fantastic being in existence.
I think this would be the most truest type of supreme being there could be. Just messing with everything enough to make us believe it’s doing good and then Bam!! You are morphing into a chaotic hell.
What could be more of a force of justice than this?

Just love the idea of Tzeentch ❤️😺

I’m a fan of The Undivided God. I feel like they really kept detail about this god out of the lore, yet they have so many unit options!

The Horned Rat is a Skaven deity, and the Undivided seems more like a 40K religion for many of the Chaos Space Marine Chapters.

Nurgle. The benign and helpful god. The Great Gardener of Souls.

And I like green!

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

I liked Khorne in 6th edition. Mainly because red seems like a chaos colour, and Khorne likes axes so a combined mortal and beastman army could look nice and uniform because everyone has axes.

Well if I include the Horned Rat in the list than might as well include Hashut as well.

Any others?

Skaven are essentially a chaos faction, due to the warpstone etc, are they not? They're the closest to chaos I ever wanted my figure collection to get. I think the little guts are great!

I didn't know Skaven have guts. :icon_wink: :icon_lol:

Do Skaven even exist? There just creatures used to scare kids into making better choices. :engel:

There is currently an even spread to the votes. This is not chaotic. Chaos theory says there should be a cluster effect!

Ah the irony!

Speaking of chaotic, my results don’t show my support Tzeentch. The korne  god is without results as well.
I see the influence of the lord of change at hand

I cast my vote for the god of the evil stunties. Chaos Dwarves were the second army I started after Empire. Always a special place in my heart.

I sold some. And kept some. It is my most ambitious and underdeveloped conversion army half in the making!

Was tempted with Hashut but in the end I had to go with Slaanesh. Not because I'm a pervert (really more in spite of it), but because what Slaanesh represents is something that I think is really sinister. The pursuit of pleasure, excess, perfection, pride, etc. All those things are good in varying small doses, but the veteran Slaanesh devotee never quite achieves the pleasure they want, they're always seeking, craving for more, as their mind becomes resistant to even the most extreme and debased pursuits, they really live in a state of frenzied anguish, trying to scratch an itch that won't go away. To sate a hunger than won't be sated. To satisfy a lust that won't be satisfied!

Plus the whole idea is pretty much just the Cenobytes from Hellraiser. Angels to some, demons to others. Pain, pleasure; all the same!

While I never actually played a chaos army in wfb I always felt that Khorne was probably the most straightforward and less complicated of the lot, and being the god of anger and bloodshed I suppose most warhammer factions end up ‘worshiping’ him unintentionally, after all Khorne cares not from whence the blood flows...

I did have a chaos plague fleet for Man O war that was mostly devoted to Khorne and my first (and largest) aos army is khorne mortals so there’s that.

Hertetics! Blasphemers! For Sigmar's Heirs, the only legitimate question can be which chaos god is your favourite to be obliterated first.
