Hey man, I'm pretty new to WoC myself, but Im pretty sure that warriors as core instead of marauders would be better, and i wouldn't take chosen without a war shrine. Love the nurgle though, will still by nasty hard to kill. what weapons do the chosen have?

Just the regular hand weapon. As far as I know, they aren't core units.

Right, the Choosen are Special units. However, since it's an elite unit, I would give them weapons that hit harder. Hand weapon + shield is something I would give more to Tzeentch's Chaos Warriors as it's a defensive configuration. What you want for your Choosen is to be an hammer : a unit that will cut down enemy regiments. I would give them Halberds as they strike on initiative and give +1 strength. For Nurgle Choosen, it's ideal. If they were Khorne, 2 hand weapons would be better as they would have a crazy amount of attacks. 10 guys is not a lot though, I think that you should increase their number as soon as you expand your army. I try to never have less than 20 men in an infantry squad unless they are monstrous infantry or multiple wounds units. Under that, they just melt too fast.

Not necessary. This is way to small of a pts value to need a chaos lord, plus he isn't geared out to be super killy(which is the whole point of these guys) go with an exalted champion instead and use the leftover pts for something else.
Core: 20 x Mauraders, chieftain, Mark of Nurgle, 3 armor (173 pts)
20 x Mauraders, chieftain, Mark of Nurgle, 3 armor (173 pts)
Make the marauders into a unit of 40. Twenty of them goes down way too fast.
10 x Forsaken, Mark of Nurgle (189 pts)
Anything else and I really mean it. These guys are bad. Think of them as the warp talons of the army and you would be right. Use your points for something else.
Special: 10 x Chosen, Mark of Nurgle, Champion, Standard (220 pts)
Wait until bigger games. 10 of them isn't enough to make much of an impact, plus they're way too expensive.
total pts: 1000

Have to agree with Hedonismbot you would be better of running Festus if you are going with nurgle mauraders and get them Great weapons, and Chaos charriots shines aswell in lower P games.

Festivus, hell yeah. Once he starts handing out regen and poisoned attacks to your guys it get's really gross.

Here is an updated list, I need to lose 25 points to meet 1k points. Any help will be appreciated! Thank you for helping me so far!

HQ : Festus (190 pts)

Core: 40 x Mauraders, Chieftain, Mark of Nurgle, Standard (340 pts)
3 x Chariots, Nurgle (375 pts)

Special: 5 x Chosen, Champion, Standard, Mark of Nurgle (120 pts)
total pts: 1025

And, I was thinking of putting Festus in the group of Chosen and making them godly, is that a good idea?

I still don't see the point in those chosen. I thought only wasn't enough, but 5, nope. You don't have enough to do anything with them.

I'm not sure what I'd do with the rest of your pts.

Maybe drop the chosen and a chariot for some knights, or something like that.

Switch the knight champ to a musician or something and you're good. Having to issue challenges and accept them can suck.

Sorry to resurrect a dead thread (I can start a new one if needed), but would it be wise to take the 2 chariots, or should I swap them out for something else?

I have seen what AoS does from other topics and such, and I'd rather stick with 8th edition
