View Full Version : Daemons or Sisters?

18-09-2012, 07:33

in two weeks time I have a 40k tournament coming up and I am torn between my sisters and daemons.

the tournament is only 1000 points, making sisters still a valid choice since the game is still small to make faith points useful. 6th edition wasn't so bad on sisters especially the fact I can flame when charged, Saint celestine and some seraphim will give some hard kicking.

But daemons, a recent army I started collecting, have a higher chance in winning the game, although the options I have for them is low and limited since I bought only the models I like the look rather than how it plays might come on a downside. Building a 1000 point sister army is simple since I have been playing them for 3 years, daemons weren't tested even once so, I need help in building a list for them.

This is what I have in my daemons army:

30 bloodletters
1 changeling(sorcerer of tzeentch\herald)
20 pink horrors
6 screamers
1 exalted chariot of slaanesh \ 2 chariots(Not assembled...yet...)
10 demonettes
5 seekers of slaanesh.

I got a bit of everything except nurgle(next on my list :P)

by the way, Sister list will be more like this.



Battle sister squad
2x Flamer, Rhino
Battle sister squad
2x Melta, Rhino

Fast Attack

Seraphim Squad
7 Seraphim, 2x hand flamers, Power Axe

Heavy Support

Storm Bolter
Storm Bolter

Retributor Squad
4x Heavy bolters

Total - 1000

anyway I would be more than glad to get some help.

If you continue to pursue daemons, you need to fill out your elites. They are the best units in the codex (ignoring beasts of nurgle)

Sisters needs more dominions :)

If you're comfortable with sisters and want to give it your best shot at winning, take sisters. If you want to get 3-4 games in a day in an have a giggle, take demons.
