I generally use them to accompany the army and occasionally raid the enemies lands for resources. So near the end game when high level Chaos agents were hitting me again and again and causing more and more grudges to appear my lowly agents kept failing to kill them.
Caused me a lot of frustration at the time but still had fun with it. Was really relieved when I finally got rid of my last grudge. Of course when the main Chaos faction was destroyed and their agents vanished that helped a lot
Yeah the whole "wipe out faction, end the grudge" thing really helped sometimes

Edit: The patch notes. People have been complaining that 90% of magic is useless since launch, and CA spring into action by...nerfing magic again.
That is my problem with agents. I probably should still given my armies one hero each to compliment the lord (so the dwavern King's get runelord, Franz a mage, the two mage lords a champion) but I do find myself using them for constant attempts to kill rival agents in my lands or burning walls down

I took over a pair of abandoned castles and began fortifying the area to gain resources. I made some alliances to gain some amber, so far so good. I occasionally got messages warning me about an invasion of beastmen from the far west but I thought to myself, bah, who cares there are several factions between them and me no problem I have plenty of time to prepare and besides, I wasn't swimming in money or anything. I had two armies each with around 10-12 units in them I am good for a bit.
Well apparently the game thought I had plenty of time to prepare cause suddenly I had 3 beastmen armies each with 20 units in them right in the middle of my territory (i have enemy turns turned off to make things faster). Well, I guess I am boned huh?
I assigned my allies to attack them but sadly the beastmen went first and slapped my wussy armies aside and burned down my giant tree granting me a well deserved losing game over
Your noble sacrifice of dignity is great appreciated Says normal difficulty (whereas chaos and the second dwarf camapign are hard). Maybe do the mini camapign? Also have enemy stuff turned on so you can keep track of breastmen!
