Personally the only thing that keeps Chaos slightly below the rest is the
fact that they can't get the BG's. I think that Chaos are actually one of
the poorer armies, if only slightly. I believe all of the armies are fairly
even, especially compared to 40K armies and WFB armies. The armies are all
different, but most armies get a good chance to beat the other armies. Some
are just little better or poorer, but not greatly so.

I think he mentioned earlier in the message that the guy using Chaos was a
pretty good player, and I think that makes far more difference overall then
pure army type selection.
