View Full Version : Daemon Ward Saves

So I will be playing a DoC army soon and I have yet to replace my old HoC book. I already know their instability test works pretty much the same, but what about their ward saves, do they still fail against magic?

Instability doesnt "pretty much" work the same, no more "poof, my units gone" and their Ward saves are now true ward saves, so effective against everything but the rarest of attacks.

As Draconian said and yes it is part of why demons are way too damn good. Everything that was a limit for them is now gone.

Well nuts, I actually knew the "poof" aspect of stability was gone (that's what I meant by pretty much, test works the same way but with out the total loss of the unit), but real ward saves, that will be a pain. Are they still 5+? Also is T3 still pretty common for cores, I know Plaguebearers will be higher but what about the others? Also how is leadership for the greater deamons, I am thinking of bringing an Oldblood with blade of realities (man now I really wish they hadn't changed that one)?

Ld9 or 10 on GD, however they get a tactical BSB roll and also get to take standard of sundering, which makes your lore harder to cast. yay.

Grab the book, read it and lament with the rest of us....

change topic "daemon WS" to "another whine thread". as always

Erm, sorry? Where was the whining? Just stating, absolutely correctly, that Daemons are hideous. Not unbeatable, just hideous.

Just some pre-emptive whining from Paz, nothing to concern yourself over ;)
