Daemons - Thoughts/Builds/Etc



I ordered some parts to create some neat new Daemon Princes.  The plan is to try and create a unique set of 3.  I will probably sell of the other ones I have as I hoe these new ones are pretty nutty.  Will see how it all comes together when I get the parts.  Fun times indeed.

Oh - This is the End - the new movie with the new "brat" back of bros is very very funny.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time and I would say if you are not offended by lots of dick jokes then this movie is for you.  And lots and lots of dick jokes.  Fun times - two thumbs/hooves up.

Paint list - for those interesting.

Me
Daemons???
Plastic Dudesmen - Need an idea to draw up - fun times

Luis
6 Terminators - Primed!
1 Drop Pod - in pieces
Then I ship some stuff - woohoo

Jens
Open the box, see what is inside to quote it out

Don
1 Daemon Prince - Done!
1 Helldrake - in pieces

So a normal week - more Chaos stuff haha.

Blargh - since I want to redo my Daemon Princes it means I need to come up with designs.  Especially for Fateweaver.  I think he needs to pop back in as he gives me a lot of options to help survive, plus giving me a tool kit to do it all.

Right now - Current MC super build

HQ: Fateweaver
HQ: Keeper of Secrets,  Exalted Gift, Greater Gift, Lvl 3
Troops: Pink Horrors X 10, Iridescent Horror
Troops: Pink Horrors X 10, Iridescent Horror
Troops: Plague Bearers X 10, Instrument
Heavy: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Armor, Wings, Lvl 3, 2 Greater Gifts
Heavy: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Armor, Wings, Lvl 3, 2 Greater Gifts
Heavy: Daemon Prince of Slaanesh, Armor, Wings, Lvl 3, 2 Greater Gifts

That one is pretty basic - and I have taken to wanting to use Fateweaver as another - win more option.  His ability to reroll the warp storm as well as reroll a dice will be extremely important in keeping things alive.  Do I need to get that Iron Arm off?  Welp I can always reroll that one on my turn.  Oh crap I rolled double 1's?  Well I could always just reroll the one dice to get a better one.  Fun times indeed.  Kenny has changed my mind on him and I think I need to test him further.  I still don't like Nurgle princes due to the nature of Cover going away - but it is still something to think about.

The Dog list I would play would mix this up a bit.

HQ: Lord of Change, Greater Gift X 2, Lesser Gift, Lvl 3
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Locus of Wrath Lesser Gift
HQ: Herald of Khorne, Juggernaut, Locus of WrathLesser Gift
Troops: Pink Horrors X 10, Iridescent Horror
Troops: Pink Horrors X 10, Iridescent Horror
Troops: Plague Bearers X 10
FA: Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 15
FA: Flesh Hounds of Khorne X 15
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Mark of Slaanesh, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Mark of Slaanesh, Baleful Torrent
Heavy: Soul Grinder, Mark of Slaanesh, Baleful Torrent

It is fast - will get to you and cause some damage.  I could drop the Lord of Change for Fateweaver but who knows if it is worth it.

I will be testing it more - and hopefully have something neat to bring up to Virginia later this month when I am at Spikey Con.  Woot - tired as crap today haha.

Minis to show

Fateweaver is very worth it, if nothing else than the reroll on the Warp Storm table, also when most people hear Fateweaver they tend to want to kill him early which takes the pressure off of other units(to be fair any Flying MC tends to draw attention though)

If you were to bump it up to 2000pts what would you add/change?

Im interested in running similar lists. My nurgle were fun at wargamescon and pretty much done. I want to get another deamon list going but i only have tzeentch princes instead of slaanesh. I also used the torrent grinder to much success and would love some ideas on slaneshy grinder conversions. Chumby thinks bastardizing a wraithknight would be fun and I agree!

Personally I am going mono-Nurgle I think. I have contemplated throwing in Fate Weaver but since he Hates Nurgle...

Personally I like running:
HQ
GUO 2x Greater Rewards Psy Level 3

Troops:
3x10 Plaguebearers

Fast:
5x Plague Drones with the Plague leader.

Heavy
DP of Nurgle Exalted Gift (this is for the portal) Greater Gift, Armor, Flight, Psy level2
2x DP of Nurgle 2x Greater Gift, Armor, Flight, Psy Level 2

Heavy hitting, fast, and super resilient. The GUO usually will Deep Strike. I plan to run something similar at Anime Expo in July.

Kenny used nurgle with great success. I personally struggled and all 3 of my loses were to tau, where losing cover really hurt. I imagine eldar primaris stripping shrouded will hurt equally as much. Plague drones were a big bullet soaker especially if i rolled endurance on guo and in that case ide put him on the table instead of deep striking.

Mono nurgle has issues in trying to kill flyers - the Slaanesh can kill just about any vehicle with it's 2d6 str u shots when you have Iron Arm up. It is just nutty how much you can just kill things with it.

I do wonder if dropping dogs, just going 3 grinders with a crap ton of troops might be better.

If I went to 2000 - the dogs might go out for 3 super HQ's. That might be worth it. Or Drop one - get a Keeper and get 2 of the DP's as Heavy? I think I need another HQ then.. too much to think about haha.

Thomas aka Goatboy said...

Tau will hurt - thus the change from Nurgle to Slaanesh - I would rather have the 2d6 shots.

If you roll Iron arm first then we start to look at Telepathy and try to get hallucinate.

Hey T, that fateweaver build looks very similar to what I'm running right now. Its vicious.
