So new shiny Warhammer - Warriors of Chaos Army Book - how will it change my normal 2400pt Army that I've been using...

Lord
Chaos Sorcerer, Lvl4, Mark of Tzeentch, Talisman of Preservation (45)
#No longer have access to Infenal Puppet (35) ==> becomes Dispel Scroll (25)
-- 370pts ==> 355pts

Hero
Exalted Hero, Battle Standard Bearer, Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Talisman of Endurence (30)
-- 180pts ==> 178pts

Core
1 x Chaos Warriors (19), Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 354pts ==> 353pts

1 x Chaos Warriors (18), Mark of Tzeentch, Shield, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 338pts ==> 336pts

Special
1 x Chaos Knights (5), Mark of Khorne, Ensorcelled Weapons, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 280pts ==> 255pts

1 x Chaos Knights (5), Mark of Khorne, Ensorcelled Weapons, Musician, Standard Bearer, Champion
-- 280pts ==> 255pts

1 x Chaos Warshrine, Mark of Tzeentch
#Note: moved from Rare to Special in new army book
-- 150pts ==> 135pts

Rare
1 x Hellcannon
-- 205pts ==> 210pts

1 x Skullcrushers (4), Ensorcelled Weapons
-- 240pts ==> 312pts

Total 2397pts ==> 2389pts

So got 11pts left to add Chaos Mutation to my Sorcerer Lord = Third Eye of Tzeentch (10)

So overall army has not changed much, loss of Infernal Puppet makes Miscasts a worry now; no more 6 dice Infernal Gateway....
Plus price drop across most models except the Skullcrushers which have gone up +18pts each - no real surprise as they are very effective with so many Str5 attacks and the FAQ making them T5 due to using mount toughness - still only 2 wounds each so roll a few '1's on armour save and the unit is gone.

Future changes - maybe dropping the Hellcannon but what to add?
Can't fit another unit of Skullcrushers without dropping the Ensorcelled Weapons.
Add Slaughterbrute bound to my Exalted Hero?

As to the Book - Robin Cruddace > You Star, very well done - balanced but still interesting options.

What do others feel?

The skullcrushers are now t4 but have 3 wounds to compensate

Your quite right, missed that change!! My eyes must have glazed over.
Still gaining a wound vs T5 - not a big issue, just means low strength models can hurt the Skullcrushers and then bounce off the 1+ Armour save.
Though as I have mananged to roll multiple 1's when rolling to save before - I'm still likely to lose a couple of Skullcrushers in a combat....

My little gripe is that though he is still able to challenge scyla does'nt have the eye of gods rule and as a consequence don't get to make a roll on the table. This is also true of daemon princes and kholek.
Who knows what will be in the errata, if at all....

I doubt princes or scyla will get to roll on the eye of the gods as they have ended their quests in deamonhood and spawnhood .

Im a big fan of the book, mark of nurgle is nasty on a WS9 deamon prince.

I can see lots of builds from the books. Big thumbs up from me.
