What's the Chaos weakness ?

What are the weaknesses of Chaos? Numbers is the most obvious element though demons are pretty cheap.

the only weakness in a chaos army is its lack of speedy units and not many goode phsycic powers

Not to mention the whole thing with daemons being in reserve.  You have the possibility of never seing some of your best troops hit the table.

Yes but if in a Thousand Sons army you will most likely get your Daemons when you want them (I am talking about using psychic powers the turn you want them ) Of course other armies can pretty much do the same type of things to get thier daemons when they want them I surpose.

No invunerable saves for power-armoured models.

Okay, okay, so it's getting addressed in the new codex.  but still...

Me for one <evil grin>

I don't play Chaos, but I play against it more than any oter army - so I figured I'd pop in occasionally to see what's happening :)

Uh, oh. Nurgle guy get angry. All Ork spies retreat! Me first!

I don't have a chaos army yet but I want to build one. I find it stinks to have your ok greater daemon possess your fully decked out chaos sorceror lord with tons of wargear.
In one of the WD, the Word Bearers Index Astrates army can get a 4+inv. save. It costs 40 points but It comes with a power weapon. It's called the Accursed Crozius (hence the chaplian).
Everybody has a little green in them.

another weakness is the invunerable saves of daemons cause it is only 5+

I don't think normal Demons should have a better than 5++ save, Greater Demons OTOH could go with a 4++ save.
