The Chaos list has very few advantages over the marine list. Chaos armor
doesn't get 'stubborn', and the army lists make it almost impossible to take
full advantage of many
of the special troops types ( noise marines, 1K sons, etc. ) Chaos also has
access to a very limited selection if IG equipment.

OTOH, the daemon detachment for chaos is insane! Even under the most
restrictive interpretation, you can still field detachments consisting
exclusively of 5 major daemons.
I shudder to think about an army consisting exclusively of bloodthirster

I've been waiting for this one.

Seeing how Chaos can not only take Land Raiders, but
Predators, Daemon Engines, and Imperial Guard tanks
(also artillery. I don't have the Armies book in front of
me, so I can't verify this). All of this comes from being
able to field not only Chaos, but Daemon detachments
and Chaos Cult detachments.

I can see some really, really evil Chaos armies coming
out in August (when the Chaos stuff is finally released).

Being a Chaos player who has yet to field a Chaos army
under the new rules, I like this. But, what about everyone

Have any of the other Chaos players fielded one of these
mostly vehicle forces? If so, how did it fare?

For everyone else, do you get the feeling that Chaos will
be even more evil than Marines? (I do.)
