I just started collecting DOC about three weeks ago and have finally finished painting my army and am going to be testing it out in a local tournament on Thurs. I realize this list won't work against most armies involving majority immune to psychology units, but it'll be nice to single units out that aren't immune. Originally, I had a caster GD of Slaanesh for Phantasmagoria purposes but eventually decided that it would be too LD-based and it'd be better to have a unit-crumbler with the BT. Constructive feedback is always appreciated based on experience and don't worry: I can take it. :) First DOC army experience since 7ED so it'll be nice to see how it plays out. I don't have much faith in winning the upcoming tournament: The main purpose in participating is so I can see what better players will do against it instead of normal local games against less-skilled players.

NOTE: Keep in mind that the Heralds are inside of their respective unit counterparts to give them herald bonus.

Thanks for the response, bro! Several reasons, however, why I can't do that:

1. Furies don't cound towards minimum Core and I need 3 (thus the Daemonettes w/ Slaanesh Herald for striking first).
2. The object of that unit is to force an enemy unit to charge me with Siren Song and then strike first on it with -3 to -5 LD for break tests (Masque lurking nearby) and have Seekers or BT for flanking.

Curious... could be worse :p - looks quite reasonable to be honest.

Lol that's how it was originally to be honest, then I found out after reading about the Masque that I could force units that aren't immune to psychology to not only charge me and I strike first but to have them deduct their LD by ATLEAST 3 (possibly 5). I thought that was way too funny to pass up. I just barely got talked out of keeping the GD of Slaanesh in there for Phantasmagoria but I'm glad I took him out for the BT and 5 Seekers.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Any more is welcome; tomorrow's the big day! I'll let you guys know how it went. It'll be a 3-game tournament.

Your previous choice was more origonal.

You know blackjack, I thought the exact same thing and after looking at the two different combinations, the only thing that made it a difficult decision was the fact that I was losing the originality and taking the commonly-used combination. As much as I feel like such a comformist (make sure you adopt a stereotypical goth voice when you say that), it really is the obvious choice. :cries:

Well I won 2 of 2 games but the players I played honestly weren't veterans or very good at all... this week's tournament was a huge dissapoint compared to how it regularly is.

I'll be using this list tomorrow against Wood Elves and possibly VC. Any tips you guys might have?

If its too easy maybe you shouldnt be playing the cheesiest army available.
