I heard that the top 10 of the uk GT heat 1 had 7 daemons armies. so obviously it seems wise to be bale to handle them with my army.
What kinds of builds are people using in tournaments? And any good tactics for dealing with them?

The more detail the better

Awesome guys, thanks in advance

The most obvious build to fight daemons in tournaments is demons. It's quite popular, I hear.

Well just keep in mind that there will probably be greater deamons (so take warmachines) and then be ready for either magic heavy Tzeentch or combat heavy khorne (or a mix).

Lots of infantry with static combat res are your friend here, as is high leadership.

Roll over and play dead.

Shoot them. Gun Lines do well against Daemons. Little guns against the troops big Guns (Cannons) against the greater deamons.

Make sure you have things that fight fear and terror. The single biggest advanatage daemons and undead have is the "out numbered by a fear causing unit" rule that makes your units flee regardless of what it's leadership is.
