If so a unit of 6 can flank charge you on the second turn and dish out 24 Armour Piercing Attack while a BT with Obsidian Armour killing off any character in the front? I couldn't think of any unit which can withstand such attack.

I can think of plenty that can. But this doesn't hinge on them being monstrous infantry (which they are not) as by being monstrous cavalry (which they are I believe) they the result is the same.

Aren't they Beast (not having the Rulebook here, just asking)?

Well sure they have M10 + 3D6 (2 highest) charge for a maximum of 22".
Also sure if they flank something that something is probably screwed o;

But it also comes expensive when you're throwing a good 40% of your army at one unit...

They are Monstrous beasts, which means that they only get 1 supporting attack each, not 3.

yay for daemons not getting it 100% their way, though that just means people will simply field Flamers and lots of 'em... ;[ again... !

6 Fiends would be 360 pts anyway I think? or are they more expensive than I remember?

Most of the new rules makes Daemons worse, Flamers are about the only thing buffed, the rest is nerfed a bit (which is good).

Uh... you'll find most units will generally be able to upll off 2nd turn charges. But do you really think, at 2000pts, Im going to be leaving gaping holes for you to get at my flanks?
