It will be an army of nothing but demons, which do you think is best/coolest?

Are you talking about a Demon Legion list?

I'd say Nurgle and Tzeentch is the best there, but Tzeentch being incredible frustrating to play against(all flying/magic/shooting isn't much fun).

Tzeentch. Every time

Except Nurgle....

Seriously, I play Tzeentch Mortals (with a healthy amount of daemons), but the idea of a Nurgle themed army appeals...they have some very charcterful daemons...

hmmm *plots new Fantasy Army (after Wood Elves, Dwarfs, OK...)*

Yes, are the rules in the hordes of chaos book?

Basically they are, but they have gotten a mayor update in the Storm of Chaos book (plain improvements, and a lot of new units).

You should play Slaanesh btw. Have you seen the forgeworld Keeper of Secrets? There's no excuse not to have Slaanesh in a Daemonic legion....:p

Failing that, go for Tzeentch or Nurgle.

So all the rules for them are in storm of chaos? (I mean all the gods, not just slannesh)

Yes.

And you should play Nurgle if only for the conversion possibilities.

If you need another reason: Because I said so. ;)

That is the main thing which draws me to nurgle, I love converting and modelling

Scythe

Just to prevent a misunderstanding; not all rules are in the Storm of Chaos book; you still need the basic Hordes of Chaos books for a lot of stats etc.

Which means I end up spening 12 more :rolleyes: Ah well, it will be worth it.

Edit: If people find tzeentch annoying to play against then I won't use them because other peoples annoyence always seems to spread to me during games which is why I like games more when both players have had an enjoyable time (its even better if both have and i have won)

... and the Daemonic Legion info from Storm of Chaos can be found on PDF-files, no need to buy an expensive book for that.

:cool:

*hopes of spending less money rise* Do you have a link?

Crube
20-12-2005, 12:57
*lurks in anticipation of a link to read up on the Nurgle stuff...being too lazy to go get it himself...*

I've looked on the GW website but haven't found it, someone who can (and in crubes case be bothered unless he was meaning me) find them please post them here.

Crube
20-12-2005, 13:16
Immortal99, I was referring to me...Iwouldnt be that rude (honest...)

I too have had a scout around the GW site and can only find the FAQ as a PDF... c'mon Latro, fess up...

immortal99
20-12-2005, 13:25
The FAQ doesn't have the army list though does it?

Crube
20-12-2005, 13:30
Nope.......... (hopefully enough dots to get past minimum message length.....)

Offers arnizipal thanks (and cough medicine...)

Heads of to GW to look at more minis...

immortal99
20-12-2005, 13:40
Thanks, now I can save myself 12! (and get more plaguebearers)

Latro
20-12-2005, 13:45
Behold the joys of Google!

I searched for pdf and Storm of Chaos :p

Use Be'lakor and mix and match your daemons all you want ;-)

I want to stick with one god because if I didn't that would (at least I know it is in 40k) be against fluff completely.

corvin

Not at all, the various gods do in fact work together. Often its Tzeentch that is manipulating them to do it, but cooperation is not unheard of.

However, there are polar opposites that won't work together(primarily fluff, but sometimes there are rules about it to):

Nurgle will not work with Tzeentch

Khorne will not work with Slaneesh

But if you wanted one of:

A Khorne and Nurgle army
A Khorne and Tzeentch army
A Slaneesh and Tzeentch army
A Slaneesh and Nurgle army

That would be fine.

Selsaral

Ah. Well that subject is entirely foreign to me. As far as I am concerned, playing undivided is 100% legitimate and perfectly fluffy. I mean Be'lakor is the star of the daemonic legion, games workshop clearly intends for there to be plenty of undivided daemonic legions out there.

I know wierd little customs like this spring up all the time so I guess I am not surprised. It just doesn't make any sense to me, either for collecting, painting, feeling fluffy, or enjoying the game. To each their own however.

Yes, thats what it was but I will just stick with one as I want a strong unified theme.

Just be prepared for a tiny army - 1000 pts will weigh in at about your 2 core units and hero, + one other unit. Overall, I think nurgle, It's what I'd do if I did daemon legion.

gorenut

I vote for Nurgle simply because they seem to be the most characterful and fun of the daemons yet the most underplayed.

adreal
21-12-2005, 07:32
Everyone wants to play nurgle, how can they be underplayed? mmm still anyway, nurgle or tzeentch would be best (unless you want slaanesh) as khorne has to deal with that frenzy thing, and your general will be chargeing in the second turn, unsupported which means......dun dun dun, he will go poof

immortal99
21-12-2005, 07:37
Ah well, Father Nurgle speaks to me so after christmas an army of the smelly things will form. :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

Woot! 700th post!

maybe it's just my area.. I see Tzeentch and Slaanesh tied, then Khorne, finally Nurgle.

Wow, there are acctually multiple daemonic legion players in your area? Or did you take mortals and beasts into account as well?

The boyz
21-12-2005, 13:14
Yeah Nurgle are my favourite. I'm not sure why really. I suppose I just like the look of the minatures really. They look pretty cool in a rotten, diseased ridden way.

Shagrat
21-12-2005, 14:37
Sorry, but Slaanesh is the best. You can have one of the best magic lores, and a charge move of 20 is too good to pass...
You can dominate the movement phase, and pick your fights at will...
And a Daemon Prince that always strike first is VERY nice... (let those knigths charge you, who cares? They are dead anyway:evilgrin: )

It's also fragile as all hell.

I find Nurgle to be much more scary. They just won't go down, and while they are not quite as fast, they are much, much tougher, and plague riders are just flat out insane.

Slaanesh is speedy, but they don't hit as hard and they certainly can't stand up to any return punishment.

How so? Individual models are tough, tough not that tough if you look at their pts cost. Plaguebearers are T4 5+ ward, but cost quite a lot of points, for which some armies can get 3 basic models. All daemon armies are quite fragile. Nurgle not so much as the others, but you can't call them that tough.

Which is the most powerful Demonic Legion?

If constructed correctly, it's Tzeentch without question.

Luthor

Nurgle with all the plauge riders/ chariots, etc.

Please refrain from doing said act in the future.

For daemonic leagions I would go Slannesh becaus I like he models and style of play, but a Tzentch army is pretty stout as well.
