    If you have the access and the funds to do Chaos properly then they can easily be one of the most entertaining armies to work on. The old metal models are awesome, but you do have to be a bit careful...

    I\'ve played against Dwarf gunlines too... 40 Thunderers, 10 Crossbowmen, 3 Cannons, Organ Gun, Gyrocopter and one unit of Ironbreakers for no apparent reason. Lots of fun that was :|~
