The Khorne faction is one of the best factions in the game because they don’t have any complicated mechanics and have flexibility. They are one of the best factions to start the game. Also, Khorne are the melee specialists and are best when it comes to rushing and beat-down.

The Khorne faction got one weakness which is lack of magic and artillery units. But they are still best to pull off a round. Winning battles reset your movement rate and refill your troops by a huge amount.

The Slaanesh is one of the strongest Warhammer 3 factions when it comes to high damage. They got Nkari, a demon in battles when you got good skills and equipment. They are melee-based factions. Slaanesh is best when it comes to flanking an enemy. 

Their rush gameplay is one of their strengths. But new players have to be careful when they use Slaneesh as they lack a bit of survivability. We recommend trying Slaneesh once and then trying others. This will get you an idea about the factions on this side. 

3. Tzeentch 

This is one of the most fun-to-play factions. They got some unique mechanics and it may take a while for new players to get used to this type of faction.

Tzeentch got good flying units and long-range battle abilities. The spellcasters play an important role in this army. Basically, they are a very tricky faction, and players need a bit of practice to get used to this faction.

Also, make sure that you understand the mechanics of Tzeentch correctly before proceeding.

4. Kislev

The Kislev is one of the strongest and easy-to-play factions. Even the game itself recommends you to choose between daemons of chaos or Kislev. While using Kislev, you have to deal with a huge amount of enemies, and the primary equipment is going to be low-tier equipment.

They are the faction that believes in their supremacy. The Kislev is the most flexible and versatile faction too. The only weakness of Kislev is they are saturated. If you have just started playing the game then we recommend you try Kislev first. Then you can choose if you want to play with them or not.

5. Ogre Kingdoms

The Ogres are very fun to play faction and their starting positions are pretty decent. They give you two legendary lords to choose. The lords are Greasus Goldtooth, the Overtyrant, along with the Prophet of the Great Maw, Skrag the Slaughterer.

Both of them have a unique playstyle. But from both of them, we say Skrag’s campaign is indeed the sounder one. The starting point of this lord is the southwestern corner. Ogre kingdom’s playstyle can be adapted easily by new players. 

Before playing any faction, it’s always important to understand their playstyle first and then their mechanics. The ogres got some pretty good easy mechanics, you can start playing this faction without any hesitation.
