So been back from Deployment for a few months now. Life has kept me busy but finally I am back on track to restarting another army (I have 0 built Fantasy, sold it all). I'm starting with Daemons then working to Warriors after it is all built and painted, I have 90% of the models already.

Here is my first list, this is to be built up to and can be scaled down until it is all finished.

Main battle plan is the three core takes the center, with Horrors between the 'Letters. Lord and Seekers take one flank (both moving 20'') and the Screamers and Flamers take the other (both capable of handling any nuisances).

What are your thoughts? I was thinking of trying to add a duplicate unit of Seekers with Herald, maybe for higher points. I am definitely considering Siren Song for the HoS.

Cool list,

Screamers are more of a "fun" unit, they generally wont as expected for their point cost, furthermore you can always just remove them and add in a unit of 6 flesh hounds.

Depending on how competitive you want your list to be, Flamers really make it competitive. I usually take 2 untis of 6 in my competitive daemon list.

Your lord of change should take MasterSorcery and should be a level 4 wizard. From here i would either take dark magister or twin heads.(+6 to cast usually always makes it )

Im not a big fan of pink horrors, but the unit size is good, as for the Blood Letter units, one unit should have Icon of Endless War


IMO this list is solid, only thing is the screamers which wont really do as expected. In lists like these i prefer Keeper of Secrets(for flanks) over the Lord of Change,then to counter balance your lost of magic I would just take 2 Heralds of Tz with Master Sorcery and Dispel Scroll gift. This provides light magic which you can always just irris to cast, like if you need to kill a pesky S3 unit.

Looks cool. Minor things;

Split the screamers and the flamers. No sense not to really. As mentioned, Screamers aint top tier by any menas, but they have there uses (the high strength can usually take 1-2 wounds off monsters, making hem a little more cautious in choice of combats).

And, always horde the blooodletters. You will gain more attacks, and cover a wider arc. its a win-win.

I dont know anything about daemons (woc ftw) but I did see in your first list that your heralds of khorne have the same magic items and I dont think that's allowed.

Daemon's magic items are actually "gifts" so he can take mutliples of them. Used to with the banners as well but they FAQ'd it so you can only bring one of each type of banner. But you are correct for all other armies you can't have multiples of a magic item.

I'm not a fan of seekers so my advice would be to rethink that, but regardless it looks like a nice list and you should be able to have some fun.
