The most effective method of hiding Chaos Champions is to make them look
*exactly* like one of the boys they're wantering around with. Same
paint scheme, same base (ie don't put them on a square base with
retainers if they're escorting trolls) same *everything* except that you
use a Chaos Champion model. One of our Chaos players here (who is now
in Seattle, alas) was *very* good at this... he had two units of trolls,
one neon green and the other purple & blue, and you coudln't tell the
difference between the Champion & a Troll without a bit of searching. A
*very* effective thing to do... give the poor sods some camouflage!
