So I played WoC the last year of 7th and the first year of 8th and had a ton of success. I moved on and played a Carno led Lizardman army and Orcs and Goblins the last couple of years and am currently experimenting with HE. With the US Masters coming up in a couple of months, I decided to dust off the WoC and play some serious games to see the viability of taking the army to the event.
Holyyyyy Crap. You ever wear ankle weights for a week and then take them off? You feel lighter and stronger immediately. That is the sensation I feel while playing WoC. Hell, I am playing a far from optimized list and it still feels that way. Frankly if you make a mistake, your troops have a decent chance of fighting their way out of it. Oh, and not having to worry about your army being taken off by a single Purple Sun is awesome!
I am not sure how long my return to Chaos will last (I still may take Lizards to the Masters), but I am going to enjoy the time!
