View Full Version : 2000pt Daemons

28-10-2008, 02:36
I'm still learning daemons and WFB in general but this is a relative conversion from 40k and modified after a few games. Skulltaker with the larger block of BL which advance while the rest of the army provides support and the BT does its thing against other nasty things. I think its more combat oriented in response to my playstyle but I worry about not having enough dispel capacity against something like a magic heavy VC or HE. Should be all commers but tell me what you think.

Lords: 550
Bloodthirster (550): Immortal Fury, Awesome Strength

Heroes: 200
Skulltaker (200): Juggernaut

Core: 510
16 Bloodletters (210): Musician, Standard Bearer

12 Bloodletters (150): Musician

12 Bloodletters (150): Musician

Special: 525
5 Flesh Hounds (175)

5 Flesh Hounds (175)

5 Flesh Hounds (175)

Rare: 210
3 Flamers (105)

3 Flamers (105)

Total: 1995

take skulltaker off the juggy and put him in the BLs.
drop all your musicians (daemons are imune to psych and dont flee from combat)
then with those extra 73 pts, add a flamer to each unit

new total: 1998

Turn skull taker into a regular herald of Khorn with Armor of Khorne and Juggy. Put him with a unit of 16 thirsters so they can have hatred. (They don't get hatred from Skull taker as he is not a herald plus the juggy model is 50mm by 50mm allowing you to have 3full ranks with it and 16 letters if you go 5 wide.) save 35pts

Drop all musicians. Save 18 pts

combine your 2 units of 3 flamers into one unit of 5 with a pyro caster upgrade. save 20 pts.

Buy a Banner of Sundering for the Khone herald as you will desperatly need the magic defence and the extra combat res is not bad either. lose 75pts

total 1997

Drop the bloodletters, they are mediocre unit with herald and a bad one alone. Get units of 10-12 horrors and maybe give some of them the icon of sorcery.

:evilgrin: I would stick with the Bloodletters and Skulltaker. Just go Pure Khrone and drop those Flamers. Pick up another pack of FleshHounds & add a few more Bloodletters LION
